Torture kids out of love?
I am disgusted by the amount of child abuse that is going on in the world. An Ohio couple kept their children in cages at night, saying that their children were out of hand. While a Florida couple was charged with five counts of aggravated child abuse for yanking out their children's toenails with pliers and torturing them with an electric cattle prod. Their twin fourteen-year-old boys both weighed less than 40 pounds, yet the father pleads, "It was never any intent to harm them." Both of these families were adopted children. I'm not blaming the adoption agency for picking bad parents; I just want to know how someone can see nothing wrong with the situation. If parents are adopting kids, these kids should be given a chance to be raised in a somewhat functional home since they were taken out of a broken home, they shouldn't be worse off. If the parents can't handle raising children, if it's too much responsibility for them to handle, there is a solution. It’s quite simple really, they should not adopt children.
