GREENVILLE COUNTY, S.C. -- A mother and her 555-pound son who fled South Carolina after the state planned to take the 14-year-old boy into protective custody were found hundreds of miles from their home on Thursday.
"The understanding was that the individual was of the weight where it was decided by medical authorities that he needed treatment that he wasn't being provided for by his mother," said Matthew Armstrong, of the Greenville County Sheriff's Office.
This is one of the most heinous crimes against a child.

The mother is clearly irresponsible, however this sets yet again another bad precedence as the chemo-boy.
What will come next? The state will take children from smokers, drinkers, and children that use profanity.
Makes you wonder why these cases are getting much publicity of late.
They shouldnt be allowed to stop this child from eating. How is it bothering the government? If the child's own mother doesnt want to do anythnig about it, then the gov. shoudnt. It should up to the child and the mother.
Just like that poor kid who is forced to get chemo. What kind of junk is that? Some people die from chemo.
