Good News or Bad News first? *Flips a coin* Damn. Fine, Bad News it is.
Imagine the fun being one of six cousins going to Aunt Jackie and Uncle Joe’s house for the summer to spend time with thirteen other children that the two had from different relationships and decided to be a big family somewhat like the Brady Bunch. Could be a lot of fun, right?
Yeah, but the Brady Bunch had a clean house, air conditioning, and food. None of that was prevalent neither was Jackie Farah or Irving “Joe” Smith – the respective Aunt/Uncle these cousins were supposed to be visiting! Nope, the two *ahem* parents *ahem* had to leave out of state to Michigan for a family emergency….practically a week. Car problems and such delayed their return. Can I get a “Bullshit!” please? Chances are they bit off more than they could chew and decided to go on a little ‘vay-cay’ of their own.
Yeah, during the heat wave in Bowling Green,Kentucky it got up to 101 degrees and there was no AC in that house. Add to the fact none of the dogs are house broken – why would one of the room have an inch or more of feces in it? The smell of piss and shit would make the air hard to breathe on top of the stifling heat. I’ve watched Animal Cops retrieve critters in houses like that with respirators on and taking breaks to cool off OUTSIDE such conditions – I felt bad for them having to do the kitty/doggy round up in that. I’m infuriated that children had to be subjected to that!
No food in the house – the children had to go begging in the neighborhood at different times. Um, really how the hell do you have that many kids and invite more over long term without having food bought for that? You got 19 kids ranging from babies to a teenager with no food…almost all of them are in the ‘vacuum’ appetite range to boot!
Good News – One neighbor, Annie Adams, call the cops to investigate the mess. She also noted how both parents never left for work either and there was always kids hanging around. Kids are taken to the hospital and are in custody of the State. Adams said that she’ll be moving out of fear of retribution from the Brady Bunch from Hell….
The bad auntie’s in the Big House with 14 charges of criminal abuse and five counts of wanton endangerment, no bail, but the bad uncle’s still at large.
Tip appreciation to Dee Turner. I scrounged up some additional links though.
