#1: Wow, my heart goes out to the mother. It was not right for her to leave the children at home. But sometimes you get the unenviable choices in life and no mater what you do you are in the wrong. If she had not gone to work, she would have kept her kids safe and this would not be news. But, she would probably have lost her job and had no money to care for her kids. There by putting them all in danger of losing her home and not being able to pay for needed materials such as medicine.

#2 OH, WOW. I wonder if she found them on Craig's List?

#3 Ew, Yuck! If true put his ass in prison. His ass now can be the inmates source of entertainment.

#1) I do feel some compassion for this women but the idea of leaving four children that young; especially a 2 year old and a 1 year old alone is unforgivable. You should not have for kids if you can not provide for them.
#2) Just horrifying. And I shudder to think of what those kids have or may have been through. Just a horrible situation all around..
#3) Disgusting and unforgivable. The worst part for me was that he had a 4 yr old and 6 month old. Even the idea of how someone can have children and even think about abusing a child this way is beyond me. How could you hold your babies in your arms and love them and then even THINK about "renting" a 4 yr old child for porn. If this is true I think he deserves the treatment he will receive in prison.

What is this world coming to ? ;(
