    Listen to your neighbors, get to know them. One day you may have to make a call, and you might be afraid of getting into someone's business. You may just be the one to save a child or an adult that is being mistreated.

    Someone needs to do to the parents what they done to their child. I hate ppl like that if u have a child n don't want then give it up don't punish the for your own stupidity!

    A 7 year old child left wearing a diaper.....LOCKED IN A COFFIN....and this isn't the FIRST time this has happened? Thank God the neighbor heard his cries and sought help for him. People like me who love children, but was never able to have them....well, I just despise people who CAN and DO have kids and then treat them in this manner!!! It's just not fair.
