Two people in Michigan were arrested on Monday after a mentally challenged teen, 19, was found in a caged bed in “Tolin’s Acres of Angels,” a home for those with special needs.

[su_center_ad]Huron County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Steve Bismack responded to a domestic dispute at a home in Paris Township on Oct. 20th, according to WNEM.

Bismack entered the bedroom after receiving permission to do so and found the 19-year-old in a caged bed.

The officer then contacted the Department of Human Services emergency center in which DHS personnel were dispatched to the scene.

In addition, three adults and two children were removed from the home as well.

Police said a 65-year-old woman and a 66-year-old male were arrested and face felony charges of Unlawful Imprisonment, a 15-year charge. Both have additionally been charged with Vulnerable Adult Abuse-Third Degree, a 2-year misdemeanor.

    But, but, but the name says ‘angels’!?!?

    How could a religiously named care facility, presumably run by religious folk, probably followers of the god of vengeance and wrath, be abusive? Jaw, meet floor.

    Another case of greed winning out over decency. But this happens in regular homes all over America too. We have a very sick nation. Thanks to Reagan, many of our Mental Health Institutions were closed and many of these people were just turned out on the street. Some parents with handicapped children are too old to take care of these strong patients and have had to resort to cages. Many had Down Syndrome babies late in life and just can’t physically take care of them now. They have rages at life and they need to be around someone who can keep them from hurting themselves and others in their anger at life. Until you see their rage, you have no idea how strong they are. Of course the Republicans are against abortion for any reason so they have to bear these children and raise them till they die. They don’t care about life! Just the fetus. Just control of women. People open their homes to care for these children but few get adopted. People want healthy, normal babies. So they stay in the home forever, getting bigger and stronger and more rebellious every year.

    Our neighbors had a retarded daughter late in life (micro-cephalic – small brain). She would cry every Christmas when she would get cards from the their friends who had retired and were traveling the world and free as birds….”I still have a baby that needs caring 24/7.” They had to do a hysterectomy as she couldn’t take care of herself. She couldn’t dress and wore diapers at night. Until you have walked in their shoes, one shouldn’t curse them. These caretakers are often victims of the courts too. Some are just in it for the money. Out of sight, out of mind?

    It’s ironic that the individual responsible for reversing mental health care nationwide himself fell victim to a brain malady. mrsgunka has said it better I could.
