In Jeannette, a family has been charged for the second time for enslaving a teenage girl. The Channel 11 website has the story here ... Jeannette Family Charged 2nd Time.
I just have to shake my head. What the heck? For the second time in two years, this family kidnapped a teenager and forced her to perform sex acts for food and cigarettes. This girl was 17 years old. The last one was 19; she'd been kept for 6 months. The news report didn't say how they were caught. Maybe someone was keeping on eye on them? Ya think?
What kind of crazy do you have to be to think this is a good idea? What kind of depraved family does this together? The family that "plays" together stays together? Sheesh.
It makes me ashamed of my birthplace! My parents moved from Jeannette to Castle Shannon when I was too small to remember, but I've always had a soft spot for the area. If this is the kind of thing that goes on there, though, I may have to change my mind.
I hope it was a neighbor. I know if that was going on in my neighborhood, I sure would say something.
What's wrong with people?
