A naked 12-year-old girl seen eating out of trash cans on a Temecula street was being held by her mother in a car while she worked at a nearby elementary school, residents of the neighborhood said Friday, citing Riverside County Sheriff’s deputies.
Avenida de Calazada resident Dominique Prado said she and her husband were outside pulling weeds from the yard at their new rental home a few hours before school let out Thursday afternoon when she saw the girl rooting through a neighbor’s trash can. She was completely naked, without even shoes on her feet, and trying to cover herself with a car floor mat.
The girl ran across the street to another set of trash cans, and Prado noticed a small piece of bread in the girl’s hands. When the girl saw Prado and her husband, she ran around the corner and out of sight.
Prado said she called 911, and police searched the neighborhood. Prado and her husband grabbed a blanket and set out to look for the girl, too. Eventually, they noticed movement behind the tinted windows of a BMW parked on their street just around the corner from their house.
They alerted the officers, who found the girl in the car, Prado said.
Prado and her husband brought the girl some food — yogurt, an apple, some pre-packaged children’s snacks and a bottle of water — which the girl ate and drank.
Officers would later tell Prado it appeared the girl was kept in the car, and left naked so she wouldn’t leave while her mother was at work, Prado said.

I had never heard of Temecula so for the first few sentences I was thinking somewhere south of the border (mexico or south america) as the name sounds spanish. Then I read that the witnesses called the Riverside sherriff and was like holy crap this is in California. So for all too brief a time I thought wow there is a clear example of the crippling economy but no they find the girl in a BMW owned by someone who's median wage (Teacher's aide in CA) is $30,000 (though she probably makes more as the story says she works with special needs children [that's really scary]), they live in a home in a neighborhood with house values between 250,000 and 350,000 and they can afford 15,000 bail (assumming it was a 10% bond but still). Anyway you slice it the ladys got to be nuttier than a fruit cake WTF
The posters comments have nothing to do with the political climate in this country, just a hollow insult.
Not to belabor a point but why do it again??? You're responding to another poster instead of the thread. Gosh, even a dog can be trained.
MADISON, Wis. — A severely malnourished 15-year-old Wisconsin girl found walking barefoot in pajamas near her home last week told police her father and stepmother had forced her to live in the basement for years and that they beat her, starved her and even forced her to eat her own feces.
The couple, whom The Associated Press is not naming to protect the identity of the girl, were arrested Friday on suspicion of child abuse and neglect, and a judge set their bail Tuesday at $20,000 each, the Wisconsin State Journal reported.

This girl may have a mental disorder, and the parents are dealing with it in the most unbelievably stupid way.
Which is far more common than you might imagine. The problem they haven't been dealing with is now in a body of a girl going through hormone changes. Their 'problem child' who gets left out of things is now turning into a woman sized problem. Their stupid idea to deal with her running away is to lock her up and control her with food.
Evil? No. Dumb and abusive? Absolutely.
