    I hope the law, and CPS NEVER allow this child to be returned to his parent/guardian. And, if there are other children in this household, they should be taken away and placed in safe foster homes.

        By the way, the correct spelling is “ghetto.” More importantly, which crack-house did the authorities find the parent / guardian?

    “No word yet as to why the boy was outside alone” UH, I’m thinking that his ‘adult companion’ was up to NO GOOD, but then that’s just me…what do you guys think? I’d love to see some feedback.

    F these people who s*** on their children, leave them out to the elements at 3 in the morning…I’d love to have this darling little boy. He would love me, too…it would be as if he fell into a schmaltz creek…Nothing but love and toys, and reading books and school, and soccer, swimming and baseball. Well, there you go…we all have our priorities, don’t we? Meanwhile, I WOULD take this child in. In a NY minute. He needs love and he needs to be in bed at 3am.

      Sign up to be a foster parent…it sounds like you make a good one.

      What the kid REALLY needs, is to remember this moment. He was taken to safety BY POLICE after his PARENTS neglected him.

      He doesn’t need toys and you slobbering all over him. He needs an education and guidance.

    Why is it okay to show this child’s face? Does he have a right to some privacy? Or does that not count “in the ghetto”?

    • tn

      They should have shown the parent/guardian’s face instead of the child…unless he/she is under 18.

    They use the kids to get free handouts such as food stamps and welfare but when it comes to taking care of them………….not a chance………
