    It really sickens my heart to read about little kids being killed and abused almost every week it seems. They need to be locked the heck up for a very long time with no chance of ever getting their children back!

    Yabbadude…you are so correct. There are so many good couples that would give anything to have a child but can’t have their own. The adoption process is so long and tough it like trying to get delta military clearance, but any idiot can have a child.
