    Hope you didn't live in one of those houses KK!

    I just saw this on our local news, and thought it should be shown on a more "global" level, if you can call the USMB that.

    That is nasty. The women should be made to walk the streets with signs on them saying, "I had my kids taken away because I lived in a disgusting filthy house."

    I saw. Rats don't bother me. Lions, tigers, and bears do. :eusa_whistle: Just the same, I would not put up living in an environment like that.

    No mention of any fathers. No excuse for living that way, especially with kids.

    Once cockroaches get into a building you might as well burn it down because you're never going to gt rid of them.

    Reminds me of my Section 8 growing up.

    I didn't know you could be arrested for that.

    A lot of times what will happen is a social worker will come and work with the families and give them "tips" on how to keep a house rat and filth free. When there are young children involved, it's a health hazard, who knows what they would get into in that hell hole.

    I've known some families through my job that have had situations like this, they are basically on 'probation' to prove they can provide a safe environment for their children.
