Sickening video shows Las Vegas cops rescuing young children who were allegedly battered, starved and put in cages by their parents.
One of the older children was beaten so badly that his father, Travis Doss, told Las Vegas Metropolitan Police he believed the 11-year-old was already dead, according to court transcripts obtained by TV station 8NewsNow.
The child said he was forced to share what little food he had with his siblings and that he had not eaten for days, a detective on the case recalled.
He kept saying that he was always hungry and thats why he stole, and then he said, Its food thats in the trash, so how is that even stealing? the detective said, according to a grand jury transcript.
And he kept saying that he needed big food because he was a big boy now and that he would have to share one large fry from McDonalds with like all six kids and just that he was never really fed and thats why he stole, the cop recounted.
The detective told the jury that the child said he was locked in the cage all day, every day. Posted By Ghost
