Mother faces charges for 555lb 14 year old… it’s about time.
No 14 year old unless it’s a 14 year old gorilla, should ever even come within 300 lbs of 500 lbs. You would have to shovel… and I mean with a big shovel, shovel food into this kids mouth from when he was concieved until he is 14.
What was anyone thinking when the kid weighed in at over 300lbs when he was 12? That he might just start sloughing fat off 20lbs at a time. Maybe they thought he was going to take his 14 year old brain and go on some radical exercises and diet program all by himself… have you seen his mother? She doesn’t look like she’s ever passed up a Golden Corral in her life.
As a matter of fact I bet they have their own “labeled” trough at “The Golden Corral”. No one can get that fat with out a lot of encouragement.
I’m not big on the government intervening in our personal lives but this is real child abuse. There is no “medical” condition to blame this on just absolute neglect.
Here is the story in it’s entirety… leave me a comment and tell me what you think. I am still freaked out by this. http://abcnews.go.com/Health/WellnessNews/story?id=7941609
