In the neighborhood of Cleveland where the three women and the child were rescued from, the homes are lined up like sardines in a can. The law says there must be 3 feet between your home and the neighbor’s minimum, and in that street it doesn’t look like much more.
I lived in a similar neighborhood in the Bronx for a couple of years, and when the family next door yelled you heard every word and when they had sex you could smoke the cigarette yet these people said they never knew three women and at least one child lived in the home?
They spoke to his brother-in-law, that’s the molesters sisters husband and they were forbidden to enter the home? Latino families not going into each other’s home? Forget Latino any family in a decade that claimed to be a close family yet you were forbidden to enter each other’s home? He boarded up windows on the home but still lived there, but no one thought it was strange an occupied home boarded up?
Didn’t anyone have to buy feminine hygiene products& diapers? Three bachelors living together buying tampons or diapers or baby clothes? The family had no contact so they were not for sisters or wives or nephews and nieces? Babies were born and evidently died in the home yet no one 3 feet away heard the screaming of labor?
BULLSHIT not wanting to get involved in your neighbors lives is one thing but if the man next door says “no no one else here just me and my brothers” and you know you heard a woman screaming and did nothing?
Society is complicit in the these women’s horror, monsters might have kidnapped them but neighbors not giving a shit kept them there. As john Walsh said, if you call the cops and you’re wrong you apologize but I would rather apologize to a pissed neighbor than the family of a dead kidnap victim because I didn’t give a damn wouldn’t you?
Wake up America Stacey dugard was held for 18 years and neighbors said they saw nothing? and these 3 women for 8-10 years. These women being saved was a miracle, but the heroes were the women themselves they banded together in the terror they watched they waited and when they finally got a chance they took it. The sickening part was all the neighbors saying what great guys they were, how many children do you have to steal, how many babies do you have to bury in your back yard before you lose the nice guy status?
Wake up America, it’s not just a cheesy slogan it saves lives if you see something damn well say something a child’s life depends on it.
