    who only came home when he'd run out of panhandling money, and winter was setting in (he lived under a bridge in the warmer months). Mom finally got tired of the physical abuse and left, but couldn't make it, being the only white family in a ghetto in the 60's. So much hatred...

    Someone Should Just Intervene..

    I just wanted to know I was worth the trouble to be saved. CPS treated it like a joke! The few times cps came to the house they would stand outside and talk to my abuser and take her word as gold every time. Only once did they talk to one of us kids. The report had been made for...
