Okay, I admit, I'm not up on this story. I'm glad the kid's okay, and the rest in uninteresting.
Because I'm not paying attention to it, I don't know all the facts. But it seems to me this guy is getting persecuted by a media, apparently with nothing better to do—never mind that the country is on fire—because he's peculiar.
I don't trust a single thing the Slobbering Media says because they are incompetent, lying bastards, as they've proved repeatedly and beyond a shadow of a doubt.
And now we've got "Child Protection" government goons looking to destroy the family because a 6-year-old said something that smells like blood to the sharks.
If the whole things was a hoax, Daddy should have to pay the entire costs of the "rescue" operation. Period. Teach him a lesson.
Otherwise, leave the interesting/odd family the hell alone. How about we let the children of interesting/odd parents enjoy their interesting/odd childhoods...and grow up to be better people than the mindless zombies currently trying to eat their brains.
