"I seen the girl . . .". Oh my goodness. Now that I know that the kids are safe, I am still reeling from the grammar.

Rifleman: I won't get you mixed up as a conservative with compassion.

one old man: There are others like adoption. And perhaps we as community failed these children.

I do hate to see children hungry starving with beer cans strewn upon the floor. And these children might be lucky to be alive. If the sanitation dept. picks up the dumpster, chances are they wouldn't have been seen and crushed to death.

Let's hope that these children can be rescued.

My response to one old man was denied and I see his post has been removed. I just don't see where Rifleman (who's post has also been removed) called for the children to starve.

That this lady has serious issues being a parent is apparent.

Age 21, husband in the can, boyfriend (and beer) keeping her from getting lonesome. Twin babies 8 months old. Toddlers of 2 and 3 years unattended, scavenging or playing in the dumpster, saying mama's boyfriend locked them out. No child that age makes up stuff like this. At least the dirty diapers on the floor prove their diapers were getting changed now and then.

This makes me want to scream. My heart aches for those poor kids.

KSL-TV's coverage of this event said the mother was being investigated by Immigration authorities. Why was that not mentioned in this story?

Clearly the mother is unfit to raise those children. It sounds like the father, who is in jail, is probably not much better.

Sad. Very sad.

This is bad, and so are the abuse stories that are much more brutal. Our generations of children can be taught better while growing. We can bring more to the table of our country to teach our young that their young are precious. The more brutal stories.... are enraging, to say the least. But just thinking of a 3 year old girl and 2 year old boy living day-to-day with this constant hunger and probable lack of love, let that be enough of a heartrender for today.

I feel so bad for those little ones!
I really think that some people shouldn't have kids at all...and I'm talking about females and males!
I have one little gir and I feel so responsible for her life and future, I wish I could make more money and resources to help and adopt kids and provide a safe place, food and most important...love, maybe one day!

And now, for some "professional" insight into cases like these: This woman needs help. alright -- the kind a couple years in prison can provide. "Asleep" is code for "passed out because of the drugs she's abusing." "Less fortunate," at least in instances like this, is code for "lazy, drug-addicted, and without morals."

I may not have walked a mile in these people's shoes, but I've helped many take the shoes off -- only to see many of them put them right back on. There are indeed people in this country who are "less fortunate," but the facts in this story don't describe someone who is unable to find work; they describe a woman who doesn't have the conscience God gave an alligator. Because they don't eat THEIR OWN young...

Clearly these parents should have never been parents. She's only 21 and already has 4 children?

I believe the best thing to do is to take these children away and let more worthy, qualified, and willing parents adopt them.

Evidently from the docket she was born in Mexico.

I guess that fact did not fit the fairly tale that illegals only want to come here to work hard and become law abiding citizens so it was left out of the news.

Glad the children have been rescued. If the people that found her children walking around without supervision before had called the police long ago this wouldn't even have happened.

She needs help back across the border.

Just another example of how we as a society should be able to mandate certain unfit individuals be at least temporarily sterilized; until they can prove to society that they are both financially and socially responsible to raise children so that those children don't become a permanent bane on society.

Yup!! Lets be judgmental and not forget the magic word "Worthy". If she is illegal she needs to be deported, sadly to say with the kids. If the kids where born here then perhaps adoption. Worthy is as Worthy does and even Worthy people sometimes have issues. The pile of failed Temple Marriages attest to that.

I am more interested in the Welfare of the Children Citizens or Not. Apparently proper care and nurture where not given. Lets assume that the Beer Cans belong to the boyfriend and the mother is just overwhelmed with 4 kids under 4 with no help from dad.

The help that needs to be provided is the kids placed in Foster Care until she can get her act together. This help is now being given thanks to someone finding the kids and calling the police. Just let things take there natural course from here on out.

Neglect was the Issues Not being illegal or Not, and at the time should have been the only issue that mattered the kids welfare and safety, being most vital.

I hope all turns out well what ever well turns out to be....
