Angers, France

My jaw dropped when I read the first paragraph to this story from Angers, France; but as I read, I became deeply sadened.

...parents allegedly raped, abused and pimped children and even babies....Investigators say 45 children — aged from 6 months to 14 years — were abused by their parents or people close to them from 1999 to 2002, in some cases in exchange for small amounts of money, food, cigarettes or alcohol.
Over 60 people from this small town in western France have been charged. Why?
Alcoholism, poverty and, defense lawyers claim, a failure of social workers to spot signs of abuse may have played a role. More than half of the accused, aged 27 to 73, were unemployed, living off benefits in state-supported housing.
Uh, Wrong. It's called moral and spiritual depravity.

If this happened in Old Testament times, I figure God would have smote the entire village.

Hillary Clinton's Noble idea is Ruby Starnes legacy. And the reality of that legacy is that it takes a Village "to turn decent people into bastards" and children into livestock. [Read More]

Truly horrendous... albeit inevitable. When you have the chance, compare the reality of Anger to Rand's fictional illustration of Starnesville in Atlas Shrugged. There's an excerpt posted here...

Hey man the French are very progressive. Ask JFK, Reid, Boxer or Pelosi. France is where the big Hollwood child rapist has been making movies for almost 25 years (name escapes me now but he has been nominated for a # of Oscars since he fled to France and is palsy with B. Boxer an N. Pelosi of Cal)
