Well that might be understandable but pretending it's not happening is not realistic imo....

 

No one is pretending! It's not a subject that some of us do not care for! 


 Then why in the world would you click on it?  The title was very clear. I'm not trying to be rude, but I just don't get it. There are a lot of topics that I don't like for one reason or another, so I just ignore them and click on the threads I do want to read.  We're all different so it stands to reason that we have different interests and different sensibilities. Pick what you like and ignore the rest.

Yes it is disgusting and I should have probably put a warning in the subject area. I am sorry if I upset anyone. But it does go on. And I think we as people should be more aware of our neighbors and our surroundings to report suspicious things.

The title says 12 children found in home, this not the headline from the story that I read! The title IS NOT very clear at all! I clicked on it out of curiosity to understand what the story was about!

Youre welcome and I should have given it more thought before posting. Well perhaps the mods will delete the post.

Re: 12 children found in home

S ex trafficking (and I this situation qualifies as that) is a major problem in the US. And it happens in neighborhoods that are typical ordinary neighborhoods. I wish the neighbors and the people who drove by this house every day thinking something was just not right had called the police when they first thought this. 

 

The Amish couple may have thought it was OK for their daughter to have a baby at 14. With little education and not much knowledge of what goes on in the world (I think) they may have not seen a problem with it. 

 

I hope this guy is locked up forever and cannot hurt any more girls.

@Shorty2U

you can easily go back to edit your title and put DISTURBING STORY: 12 children found in home or SAD EVENT: 12 children found in home.....that way it gives the person a heads up regarding content of the thread.

I'll admit that I didn't know the subject matter concerning the thread but it is/was not my intention of derailing your thread. I didn't appreciate the insinuation about the over sensitivity or relevance of people who did not like this thread. 

 

I hope it can continue and I do agree that it is disgusting and perhaps help some in reading about what happened in Pennsylvania.

[ Edited ]

The title says it all.  If it wasn't "clear" then I think some people need to get out of the house more often.

 

ETA - Maybe Shorty should have just added the entire story in the title instead of just the word "disturbing".... Some people may not know what's coming next.......

12 Chidren found in home......alone

12 Children found in home......without food.

12 Children found in home......without hear.

12 Children found in home.......with dead body.

12 Children found in home........that is condemned.

 

That's what a "clear" title is!
