    Haven’t these people been in trouble several times before? For the same thing? Seems to me some one should have woke up a long time ago about these people being able to be around children.

    This family has had a long history of abuse. I know a lot of people have tried to protect the kids numerous times. The state has failed to keep these 2 from hurting their kids over and over mentally and physically. I can only hope that the higher powers that be will take care of them both.

    well gee noneya…if you seem to know so much about what is going on in Hollys household…maybe you should step up…but be carefull that your own doorstep is completely free of dirt that can be dug up about yourself. To hide behind a computer screen and throw words and accusations around so freely leads me to believe than either…you yourself have something to hide….or perhaps you are talking out your ass!
