Meanwhile, Just South of Monroe, NC...

...where they chain foster children to the porch with a dead chicken tied to its neck...

Later on, of course, they progress to tying people to trees and making them squeal like pigs:

A Union County social worker was one of two adults charged with intentional child abuse Friday after deputies found a child handcuffed to a porch with a dead chicken around his neck.

Dorian Lee Harper and Wanda Sue Larson, both 57, have been charged with numerous offenses after a deputy discovered the child at 4116 Austin Road, south of Monroe, authorities said.

Larson is employed as a supervisor with Union County Department of Social Services. She and Harper had adopted four children and were serving as foster parents for a fifth child, officials said.

A deputy was responding to an animal services complaint at a neighboring home Friday when he walked up to Harper’s and Larson’s residence and saw a “10-12-year-old child secured to the front porch at the ankle, by what appeared to be a pair of handcuffs,” officials said.

“The child also had a dead chicken hanging around his neck and appeared to be shivering,” the Sheriff’s Office said.

Larson was not present when the children were discovered but is accused of being complicit in the ongoing mistreatment of the children, the Sheriff’s Office said. She was also charged with willful failure to discharge her duty as a public official.

The child handcuffed to the porch is the 11-year-old Harper and Larson had been fostering, authorities said. The children are now in custody of an undisclosed social services agency outside Union County.

Well, that ought to discourage immigration to this part of North Carolina for the forseeable future.

Update: It's on Drudge, so now the whole world knows about it.

"Oh, hai! I'm Wanda, I'm from teh gummint an' I be here tew hep yew!" Incompetency is one thing, evil under color of Authority quite another. They should be horsewhipped, IMO.
