I wish there was more information than just a few lines.

If the picture where he is standing is where he and his family lived, it doesn't LOOK impoverished or "squalorish."

I'm wondering where in the law it's illegal to not have a birth certificate. Is it?

You certainly don't need an SSN until you get your first job. Most people do for their kids though, so they can claim them as a deduction on their income taxes.

I'd like more info and as usual, the press is light on it.

Thanks for the links.

Sigh. Such a shame that the girl felt so bad about being the oldest in her class because she hadn't been given an adequate education.

And a child was born while the mom was in prison for the neglect of her others.

Sad.

They are in PA which has stricter home schooling laws so that probably part of why "our" fundies don't get the same treatment.

I'm sure there is racism at play here, but the home was squalid:

The building at 734 S. Duke St. was condemned July 3, 2009, by York City fire officials, who deemed it unfit for human habitation, Ward testified.

He later determined water and electric service to the home were shut off in 2003 and that gas service was shut off gas service in 1998. All those utilities were in Johnson's name, with 734 S. Duke St. listed as his address, the detective said.

In PA, a house is automatically condemned if the water is shut off because you cannot flush the toilets without water, and that's how disease is made. These kids were living in a home with no toilets for 6 years! They were living without heat for 11 years. In Pennsylvania. Where the temperatures hover around or below freezing for at least 4 months of the year.

If that's not neglect, I don't know what is.

I don't think it's much worse than living in a pop-up, which Esther is not doing now. And isn't a Pearl daughter living without much? I think if we made a list of our own fundies who live in similar fashion, it would be a long one.

That is not to excuse this man, however.

Other articles say the mom/wife ran away in 1993 at age 14 and was legally declared dead a decade later when her family divided up a grandmothers estate. Her husband, this guy, was her uncle through marriage. Very odd. It also said the mom and kids had spent 7 yrs at a women's shelter.

      Ohh jeeze, GrandBerry6 just came to me, snuggled his face in my neck and barfed, all over me. In my neck, in my hair, on my face, down inside my nightie all over the front of my nightie. Ohh FUCK! Bath, washed hair, cleaned sofa. Good times, good times.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.

      I frigging hate the toilets at this worksite. Specifically the door locks. Stupid little knoblet that isn't clear if it is locked or not. Door opens right off the main hallway and the toilet is just far enough from the door that I can't just hold the door shut in case I've got the lock wrong. I mean really people, how hard is it to design this? I just want to pee in private with no anxiety. Apparently that is too much to ask for.

      First thing I'm doing when I get to the hereafter is finding the ancestors who moved to the US in the first place and asking them what the fuck they were thinking moving here in the first place.  Along with giving them an epic the reason you suck speech hopefully in the presence of God and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself to all of them for condemning their descendants to living in a shithole.

      Do any of you play Dyson Sphere Program?   For those who don't know what it is I'd suggest Googling it, because there's no way I could do it justice. 
      There's always just one more thing to do before I turn off.  Blink!  And it's 2 hours later.

      I have a chance to undergo esketamine treatment for depression.  If any FJers have any thoughts, I’d appreciate them.
