KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — A rural Tennessee father is accused of raping his two teenage daughters and using electric dog collars to establish dominance over them, authorities said Tuesday.
The charges against the 37-year-old man and his 35-year-old wife were referred to a grand jury on Tuesday in Tazewell, which is in rural Claiborne County near the Kentucky border.
The man is charged with aggravated child abuse and two counts of rape. His wife, who prosecutors say knew about the use of dog collars but not the alleged sexual assaults, is charged with aggravated child abuse and failure to report child abuse.
I don't think this kind of stuff should be front page news. It's disgusting. What would it achieve except to make us feel depressed and helpless? I'm sure that father will get all that's coming to him when he's jailed but feel sorry for the daughters who have to live with, not only the memories of what he did, but with the stigma of being attached to THAT story that was on the news. I'm sure the daughters feel a bit better already, that the bad stuff has stopped, but it must be hard to heal when other folk are discussing the gory details.

Practice what you preach -- look at the U.S. in Iraq and their "rendition" camps, torturing people similar to this in the reports. Sickening, obviously.
