The Lowest Form of Life.......
I abhor the thought of serious felonies being committed. Murders and other acts of violence are terrible to ponder, but at least I understand how they can occur.
On the other hand, I have no earthly idea how a human being can sink so low as to take candy out of the mouths of their own children. There must be a special place in hades for folks like that.
As is often the case in these strange stories, the location of this serious crime is right here in east Tennessee in the friendly burg of Oak Ridge.
As reported today by Kevin Saylor in the Knoxville News-Sentinel, the feds have been called in on the case and the thieving mother is under serious charges. I'm sure, however, that her children will be emotionally scarred for life.
Senior U.S. District judge Rita Whitt commented at the hearing that "It's a sad day when a mother slowly siphons away candy from her own flesh and blood."
