It takes a village...apparently of sadists...

From the Associated Press...

Sheriff's deputies removed 11 children from a home where they were locked in cages less than 3 1/2 feet high, authorities said.

The children's adoptive and foster parents, Mike and Sharen Gravelle, denied that they'd abused or neglected the children during a custody hearing Monday in Huron County. No charges had been filed as of Monday night.

Oh, and to make sure the children would be okay...they put them in another foster home.

How many kids do social workers rip from their parents each year on flimsy complaints, to be tossed in poorly monitored foster care? I never could understand why we have a system that traumatizes children in an effort to ensure they aren't abused. Does that sound crazy to anyone else?
