    The dad should get an extra charge for that hair cut

    Jordan risked her life, to save her siblings from their parents. She’s my hero, she was terrified what would happen if the parents realized she was gone.

    As a survivor of child abuse I’m very upset at the neighbor that he saw things happening and he couldn’t make one phone call to family services

    As a former prison inmate ( drug charges. ), I saw what happens to prisoner’s convicted of child abuse or other crimes like these. It doesn’t matter what their sentences are, the other inmates will administer their own brand of justice. They will not last long behind bars. Neither of them.
  • that seventeen year old needs to be rewarded for her saving her brothers,sisters

    They are trying to put some of the blame on homeschooling regulations, but the oldest daughter was in school for 3 years. She went to school emaciated, wore the same thing everyday, smelled bad, and was covered in filth. They have no school records of anyone reporting this. The school system seriously failed this girl. Leave it to the media to put their own spin on things. 🤦🤷

    The way the young girl handled the situation and spoke to the police keeping calm and collected the whole time is just outstanding and so very brave

    How do these people find each other? At what point do people sit down and plot together how to carry out sadistic behaviour?

    so proud of jordan. she literally saved her entire family.

    It’s amazing none of the kids died. Without modern medicine I don’t even know if I would’ve survive in this world. God held on to these kids! I hope they live life to the fullest.

    The shouldn't get food in jail let them see other inmates eat

    This is probably happening other places in the country. If you have concerns about your neighbors don't just look away. Step up and take action
  • The parents mistreated their children but allowed them to keep journals. I'm sure those journals have plenty of evidence.

    Jordan is so empathic and full of love she showed enormous strength to save her family
  • @deathrow5581
    I don't understand how some people are capable of doing this to any children, let alone their own.... It's unfathomable
  • @cherrybarb4651
    All those years it's hard to believe that no one ever got suspicious about what was going on.

    The scary thing about this is if Jordan hadn't escaped when she did to brave what was out there the 13 kids would still be living in the House off Horrors. How many other children out there that are suffering? It gives me chills thinking about it.
