Couple Charged In 'Heinous' Child Abuse Case Run From Police
Couple Charged In 'Heinous' Child Abuse Case Run From Police
Husband Allegedly Fires At Deputies

A Juneau County couple already facing child abuse charges is in further trouble today.

On Friday, Troy and Lee Ann Miller ran from deputies when they tried to arrest Lee Ann for violating terms of her bail.

After catching up with her and trying to restrain her, Miller's husband, Troy, allegedly fired at deptuies.

Lee Ann ran off again while Troy Miller hid in the woods. She turned herself in three hours later. Deptuies said they found Troy Miller hiding in a car. He led deputies on another chase, allegedly shooting as he ran away. Deputies fired back, wounding him.

8. It's relevant for the following reasons, at least -
Edited on Mon Dec-13-04 04:10 PM by yardwork
1. Shows the need for better mental health care in the United States.

2. Shows that SOME people who live "self-sufficient" lives actually DO need help from the government, whether they realize it or not.

3. It shines some reality on a popular Republican myth, which is that every American is just fine all by themselves, don't need no government interference, no "socialized" health care, no social services, no help with food or housing, etc. etc.

I have no idea whether these people vote Republican or not (sounds like voting is probably a low priority in their lives) but they are the flip side to an image that the Republican Party has attempted to romanticize as "sturdy, self-sufficient, independent people."

Some people really do need help.

9. I agree
nice post. I'll bet the parents were also abused as children. I hate those two assholes, in my gut I want to see them hurt badly, but my head knows they must be seriously, seriously screwed up to harm a child so badly.

7. And that's just for starters...
The dog collar was the least of her worries. I hope her parents never get out of jail.

12. Public Schools Too Immoral, Probably.
You know how these people are. This is their way of sheltering their kid from the evils of public institutions.

5. from the link of the related article
of March 2004

http://www.themilwaukeechannel.com/news/2936895/detail....

Three Madison dentists say they will fix the girl's broken teeth for free. Her mother and stepfather are accused of knocking her teeth out with a hammer, among other things.

11. Agreed, heinous is redundant here
I thought for sure it was the TN couple who kept adopting and fostering special needs children-and kept abusing them, having them dig their own graves and so on.

16. It could have fallen under a "hate crime"....
If they hated their children then you can charge them with a hate crime which gets extra super special punishment.

15. Parents are not owners
of the spawn of thiewr loins...

Kids are people too.They deserve rights,the right to be who they are and not get beaten or abused for it,consideration, respect, love,and protection from facist asshole parents.Remember kids don't ask to come to this shithole world,PARENTS want to have kids for thier own sometimes not so altruistic reasons.
Godammit I hate that idiotic "nuclear family" myth,The stupid as fuck Horatio Algier american dream LIE,the marriage white picket fence pullled ourselves up by our bootstraps LIE!

All the social LIES the state relies on us believing in bullshit like "family" so it can continue to isolate us, stress us all out so that we'll buy tons of shit to escape stress,soothe emotions, and it teaches us to prefer domination to get things done rather than cooperaton...and I hate all the abusers in this world who abuse the rights of people who do not abuse anyone,twisting the definitions of our rights of free speech into a'right' to spew abusive emotional battering,undermining our privacy by doing thier crimes in secretwhile making all the other people who are scared of criminals paranoid and stupid,and willing to throw privacy away . I hate people who choose to abuse freedoms by twisting the meaning of freedom of choice into an domination entitlement game designed to abuse others,and foster blame the victim additudes that keep people and society sick. Fuck all the bullies and the lies.Abusive people will abuse our freedoms and rights so that they may act out thier stupid sick conduct disorders at ourr expense on innocent people they refuse to let alone..
When will society give no rest to violators of trust and become intolerant to dominators,abusers and bullies?
Violence when acted out on someone not harming you,is ALWAYS a choice.
