This blog is dedicated to "The Children Left Behind." We will not rest until the safety of our children and those that are entrusted with their mental health care are held accountable for abusing the children's God given rights, those rights upheld by our constitution, and those that have been complicit in obfuscating the truth!

In a Texas Home, 11 Children Found in Grim Conditions -

In a Texas Home, 11 Children Found in Grim Conditions -

DAYTON, Tex. — A 2-year-old girl was tied up in a restraint attached to her bed. Nearby another 2-year-old child, a boy, was restrained to his bed, too. A third child, a blind 5-year-old girl who appeared to be in a daze, was tied up on a filthy mattress.

An 11-year-old boy had a black eye and finger marks on his forearms, and one of his teeth had been knocked out. They were among the 11 children found in a home in this rural town of about 7,200 people 40 miles northeast of Houston, their plight described in a court document filed by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services, the state’s child welfare agency. They were discovered last month when a Dayton police sergeant and an investigator with the child welfare agency visited the house in response to a report made to the police alleging physical abuse of the children. 

No one has been criminally charged....?  With the conditions reported, pay particular attention to what Sergeant Doug O'Quinn had to say.  Then, seek reforms.  Oh, btw, "do the children have a dog in the hunt?"
