The oligarchy knows that such horrendously RAD afflicted individuals are so brain damaged that they will LIKELY never amount to anything constructive over the whole of their lives. It tends to consider them . . . human garbage only good for . . . dumping.
There are exceptions and tons of work with professional help CAN turn individuals around dramatically. But the person must want to change etc. etc. etc.
It would not surprise me if drugs etc. were involved.
SUFFICIENT EMOTIONALLY BONDED LOVE, HEALTHY AFFECTION, AFFIRMATIONS OF WORTH
WILL VIRTUALLY ALWAYS
RESULT IN REBELLION AND MORE REBELLION.
Certainly those kids need to be in an environment long term that has very strict limits etc. etc. but also caring adults etc. etc.
More likely, the kids will end up in prison and the beat will go on.

My thoughts: you aren't nosey. You are a typical neighbor (first of all). I am a small town guy, so can give you another small town perspective (i've lived in several). Just to get that outta the way.
The mom and dad are both drug users. The kids may be as well. In my opinion.
The dog being chained....my only 2 solutions to that are to remove the dog from the chain for the owner, and use the chain to beat the owner when they take exception. In my small town, we have an ordinance against chaining/tethering dogs. And Im asshole numero uno at calling people out on it.
Its entirely possible that the kids beg/steal for mom.

I agree with your stance, you bring some good insight to relationship issues, I enjoy reading your posts.
I have an extremely jaded stance on meth users. One close to me at the time , did some serious damage to me as he tried to kill me.
I have help pull people from the lifestyle, but it was early on in their addictions.
The rewiring of the brain is the scary part of the drug, it essentially turns people into zombies.
The only use for emotion is to manipulate others at that point.
"But, your my Mother don't you love me?"
It is very sad.
Addiction is no joke, especially when it's family involved.

No one here is a very nosy neighbour. It's just impossible to not see. They attempted to rob my own house, so I'm not really feeling too guilty about writing an anonymous post about why people might decide to up and move after an event like this.
A Louisiana mother was jailed for whipping her three sons with an electrical cord after learning that they robbed items from a neighbor's house.
30-year-old Schaquana Spears is now grief-stricken after her six kids were taken away and sent to live with their grandmother until Spears goes through the legal process.
Spears said that her children, ages 2-13, mean everything to her and she only wanted to show them what they did was wrong. She also said she punished her kids the way her own mother taught her.
