The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil,
but because of those who look on and do nothing.

More Caged Children

From Ohio to California- it seems that some people just aren't able to wrap their heads around the idea that children should not be held in cages.

Acting on an anonymous tip, deputies said they went to Vasquez's house last week and found the children living in squalid conditions. A 12-year-old girl appeared to be well cared for but the others were "undernourished and had clothing that
was soiled with urine and feces," according to a department news release.The woman's 6-year-old daughter told social workers that she slept on a mattress in a 3-foot-by-5-foot "cage" mounted on a wall above her bed, the release said. Her
9-year-old sister slept in another bedroom inside a 4-foot-by-5-foot plywood chamber with a small wire-mesh window and a lock that worked only from the outside.
