I’ve often mentioned that my views on a lot of things changed when I became a parent. And I mean that in a good way. A friend once asked me what the true definition of love was. And my answer – the way I feel when I look at my daughter – unconditional love. I’ve also said that I truly believe that there are some people who shouldn’t be parents. And the below-story is a classic example.
Meet Andreia Huffman and Jason Dunikowski. She’s 37 years old and he’s 32. They live in Cleveland, OH. They have 10 children. And they were recently indicted on 180 counts of kidnapping and numerous counts of endangering children and felonious assault.
Do you want to know what they did? Over a six-month period, Huffman and Dunikowski essentially tortured their 8-year-old-son. Each day from 7:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m., they made him stand facing the wall with his hands clasped behind his head as a form of punishment. And while the boy was standing there, they repeatedly smashed his face into the wall, causing him to break his nose several times. Further, each night, Huffman and Dunikowski “hog-tied the boy’s hands and feet with duct tape and tied him to the living room coffee table.” The boy “was kept out of school for two years and he wasn’t even known to the school system. Investigators say he could not read, could only count to six and thought he was 10-years-old.” Another one of their children finally called the police. You can read the full article here.
Huffman was given 34 years in prison and Dunikowski received 26 years. There is no opportunity for early release for either of them. Is it horrible that I don’t feel sorry for them or the torture they’re going to endure in prison? How any parent could do that to their child is beyond me. They’re not ill. They’re just evil.
