Why not give the kids back? This sort of thing makes me angry at how far the courts and such are peeking into peoples' lives. From what I read there is no history of abuse from him. The children's weight hasn't been mentioned but from the looks of the article they are not obese like their father. So what's the point? I don't think they have any right to deny him his children based on those grounds. I'm 3 pounds heavier than he is. I don't have the violent history like he does. What's stopping them from taking kids away from me? (I have none but hypothetically speaking.) When I was a kid, my mom was heavy. How would she react if we were taken away? Hell- 34% of Americans are obese. If something like this were in America, the children's services offices would be overflowing with cases. People beat their children and then get them back from children's services. Maybe this is just me, but the whole idea of keeping a person who is trying to improve his life away from their kids really strikes a cord with me. What do you think?
