Re: Neighbors shocked to learn 13 siblings held captive

Frankly, it makes me sick to hear all this stuff about what great Christians these people are.  They are nothing of the sort.They give Christians a bad name.

 

I  don't believe they suddenly turned into this type of person, overnight.  They must have always been a bit off their rocker

I really hope that these kids can be with each other during their deprogramming/recovery, and re-entry into the world.

 

I don't think this type of long-term abuse and quantity of victims in one family has ever been found. They are probably the most sweetest angels on earth.

Re: Neighbors shocked to learn 13 siblings held captive

I'm wondering if they even knew their home address..on the few outings they had to Disney and Vegas maybe one could have slipped note to someone to help them. These darling kids so much torture I hope the parent's never see the light of day. Wish they could be in solitary confinement the rest of their days one meal a day and showers once a year.

It doesn't make any sense; it seems like they could've gotten away sooner.

Even with more info, it don't make sense.

Why does the mom have her own attorney, and the dad has a public defender.

No one should put any blame on them.

I'm hoping for these "Kids of all ages", that we hear of one of these miracle couples who would welcome all the brothers and sisters and teach them and love them.  I have to hope for the best and that they  will get all they need and major help on adjusting to all they are going to have to.  I can't even imagine the trials and tribulations they will have to endure.  I do hope for the very best for all of them.

I didn't put any blame on them. But reports said one of the boys had been "allowed" to attend college classes, with his mother's supervision. I wonder why he didn't speak up then.

Re: Neighbors shocked to learn 13 siblings held captive

I’ve seen stories like this before. It is hard for people in this situation to think like a normal person.  The brainwashing and control runs too deep.
