  4. I read about this on the news. It's fucked up how people can take a child away and ask for money for a safe return. You know they're going to keep the kid in such poor conditions and treat him so badly that it'll cause some level of mental damage

  5. These things make me sad. They just make innocent people suffer and then end up on jail (hopefully).
