As I write this I am at work,am I happy about it? No, but I do it for my children, to provide them the things in life they need and the extras I want them to have. I can say without a doubt that there is NOTHING I would not give or give up for my children to have the things they need. Sadly that is not the case with our next set of Bad Breeders.
Meet Brian Miller (33) and his not-so-lovely wife Charity Miller (26); do they appear to be malnourished in any way? No. Well that would not be the case for their two sons 8 and 5-years-old. After a staff member of the youngest Miller boy’s school alerted authorities, a check was made of the household. We all know where this is going don’t we?
Mr. and Mrs. Miller were found to imprisoning their two sons in their bedrooms and depriving them of food, only allowing them out to attend school. The 5-year-old was getting the worst of it; he was chained by his ankle to a crib day and night. He was unable to free himself to go to the bathroom, his entire roomed smelled of urine. The crib had no mattress, it was found leaning against the wall because, according to mom, he picked at the cover and ripped it. Well shit… he ripped the mattress, what freakin difference does that make when he is forced to piss on the floor. Not to mention you had him freakin chained to the bed. What fuck else was supposed to do to entertain himself?
The boys told the investigators they were often hungry, hence the foot long metal chain and padlock around the little guy’s ankle. Mom indicated the chain was to prevent them from getting into things, but it is apparent it was to keep them from getting into the food. The 5-year-old told police the chain “gets real tight” and hurts a lot, his brother said he would hear him crying every night and that he too used to be chained to his bed, until he learned to stop getting up to look for food. Aww, that makes me so sad.
Charity, A NURSE, told police she knew it was wrong to chain her son to his bed. She knew it was wrong but did it anyways not just to one son but both.
Both boys, small for their ages possibly due to malnourishment, are in protective custody. Their parents were charged with seven counts of child abuse, child neglect, malicious punishment of a child and false imprisonment. Mr. and Mrs. Miller are both free after posting a $50,000 bond each.
