Children found locked in dog cage, living
in deplorable conditions, Wise County
RHOME, TX – A father and mother of four children are facing charges after deputies discovered a horrific scene of child abuse and neglect at a home Tuesday morning.
According to Wise County deputies, they received a call at about 7:20 a.m. on a report of domestic violence at a house off County Road 4930 near Newark, about 30 miles north of Fort Worth.
Andrew Fabila and Paige Harkings face four charges of child endangerment, authorities said.
When deputies arrived at the home, they found cuts to the Fabila’s face and heard children inside a barn, according to Sheriff Lane Akin, with the Wise County Sheriff’s Department.
Four children were found inside the barn: a 4-year-old girl and three boys, ages 5, 3 and 1, Akin said.
The oldest two children were locked in a dog kennel measuring about 3 feet by 3 feet by 3 feet, he said. The other two were found mostly unclothed on the floor of the barn, covered in urine and feces, Akin said.
Akin said it was the worst child-abuse case he’d seen during his 44 years in law enforcement.
“I’ve not worked one where children are locked inside a dog kennel, and I find that absolutely disgusting,” he said.
Inside the barn, the space was “crudely fashioned” into rooms to create some sort of living quarters, Akin said.
“There was plenty of food inside the barn, but the refrigerator and the cabinets had been locked so the kids could not get in to get food,” the sheriff said.
The children were hungry and thirsty when deputies found them, so authorities gave them food and water before they were taken to Cook Children’s Medical Center in Fort Worth. Akin said he saw no obvious injuries to the children before they were hospitalized.
The children were released from the hospital Tuesday evening and will be placed in foster care, a spokeswoman for the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services said.
Deputies noticed feces scattered throughout the house.
Fabila was sent to the hospital with cuts. Harkins also faces a family violence charge.
The couple had been staying with the paternal grandparents’ house. Texas Child Protective Services confirmed that they had previous contact with the family, but would not elaborate.
I saw this and it made my blood boil, but there was no way that I could resist sharing this. We are at a point in time on this earth where there is quiet a few people that thinks it’s cool, or acceptable, to terrorize and/or hurt the weakest members of society. I’m talking about our Elders, women, or children.
You know the funny thing is that actually, there is no animal on this earth that just inflicts pain on another creature just to terrorize , in fact all I know of only hunt and kill just for food. So if I would have put that H1 up there, I would have said “Lower Than A Gutless Sewer Rat”.
How can anyone think it is funny to Bully someone until they consider suicide???? Well I want you to know that I don’t turn my head away, and from what I can see from this other good man named Robert, who just happens to be from Australia, and he’s the writer of this post that I shared, I don’t much think he likes it too much for people to hurt women, children, or our elders.
I think you get my meaning, so at this time I’m proud to introduce Mr. ROBERT SHERRIFF, who really is from Australia, and is an Actor, Poet, Author, Singer, and Historian.
Utah couple charged with child abuse
after 3-month-old girl suffers broken bones, brain bleeding and severe burns
SPANISH FORK, UT – A Spanish Fork couple was charged Friday after their three-month-old child was taken to the hospital with bad burns on her body, and other injuries consistent with child abuse, investigators said.
According to a probable cause statement released by the Utah County Sheriff’s Office, officers were contacted by the Department of Child & Family Services to investigate an aggravated child abuse case involving a three-month-old girl.
Investigators went to the University of Utah, where doctors said the baby had second-degree burns on her hand, two broken bones, brain bleeding consistent with shaken baby syndrome and a possible detached retina in her eye.
Doctors determined that the injuries the baby sustained were inflicted over the course of two weeks prior to her being admitted to the hospital, the statement said.
The parents, identified as Whitney Huber, 30, and Daniel Mercer, 28, spoke with police about the incident, according to court documents.
After being interviewed by police, Mercer admitted to “recklessly causing the burns to his infant daughter’s left hand.”
“Daniel admitted to making death threats to the child and telling Huber when they fought on two recent occasions that he would, ‘kill the baby and make her watch as the baby died.’” the statement said.
Neither Huber or Mercer would tell police how the infant sustained the other injuries doctors said she had, police stated.
Mercer was charged Friday with two counts of child abuse – inflict serious physical injury intentionally, both second-degree felonies, possession of a controlled substance, a class-A misdemeanor and use or possession of drug paraphernalia, a class-B misdemeanor.
Huber was charged one count of child abuse, inflict serious physical injury recklessly, a third-degree felony.

Planned Parenthood has become synonymous with “abortion” — and for very good reason.
Promoting and performing abortions is a huge part of what the organization does on a daily basis, and it’s hardly a secret.
Its new president, however, apparently wants to sweep that reputation under the rug.
During a recent appearance on ABC’s “The View,” Dr. Leana Wen tried to repeat a long-debunked statistic to make abortion look like a minor part of Planned Parenthood’s services … but one of the show’s co-hosts quickly shot her down.
The largest abortion provider in America really, really wants people to think that it’s just a positive women’s health group. Despite the fact that liberals constantly paint abortion as a great decision — even encouraging women to proudly “shout” their abortions — Planned Parenthood has also worked to downplay just how many of those life-ending procedures it conducts.
On Thursday, Wen used “The View” to declare that the organization she runs is “transparent” and abortions are only 3 percent of what the group does. She also insisted that Planned Parenthood isn’t political, a bizarre claim at best.
“View” co-host Sunny Hostin wasn’t having it. She slammed Wen on the claim of transparency, and pointed out that the group’s oft-repeated “3 percent” claim is pretty dishonest.
“Planned Parenthood provides more abortions, the most abortions than any other health care provider in the United States,” Hostin said, noting that the organization provided 328,348 abortions during the 2015-2016 fiscal year.
She pointed to The Washington Post, which gave a “Three Pinocchios” dishonesty rating to the claim that only a single-digit percentage of Planned Parenthood’s activities were abortions.
That liberal newspaper found that abortion accounts for at least 12 percent of Planned Parenthood’s services, and pointed out that it could be much higher depending on how the data are presented.
Slate, another left-leaning news outlet, distanced itself from the abortion provider’s claims of transparency. It called the 3 percent claim the “most meaningless abortion statistic ever.”
Why are Planned Parenthood and its new president trying so hard to cover up just how involved it is in abortions? It’s probably because the organization is receiving over $500 million dollars in government subsidies and knows that this funding could disappear if people start asking too many questions.
“I hear all the time, I don’t want my taxpayer money going to fund an organization that provides abortions, whether or not the money is direct or indirect,” another of the more conservative “View” co-hosts, Abby Huntsman, said. “Do you understand why people have a hard time with it?”
Wen didn’t really answer, but deflected with another head-scratching claim.
“Health care shouldn’t be political,” she shot back.
Odd. Why, then, do so many liberals want government to control almost every aspect of health care?
It’s an extremely strange stance to rake in hundreds of millions in taxpayer subsidies and demand state-run medical and insurance programs but then declare that “health care shouldn’t be political” with a straight face.
Planned Parenthood’s new president seems to have mastered the art of deflection and deception. No wonder the increasingly scrutinized abortion promoter chose her.
Bombshell New Evidence Suggests
Planned Parenthood Lied to Congress
NOT IN MY WORLD!!!! is where WE THE PEOPLE first heard that Planned Parenthood was making $1,000,000 to $10,000,000 daily off illegal sales of illegal fetal tissue for highly illegal research, and the illegal sales of viable murdered Baby organs for highly illegal transplants.
When the pro-life group Center for Medical Progress, led by a man named David Daleiden, released a series of shockingly disturbing undercover videos featuring doctors and employees of Planned Parenthood abortion clinics in 2015, those videos appeared to expose the abortion providers as being engaged in the unlawful harvesting and sale — for profit — of various internal organs and body parts of aborted babies.
Unsurprisingly, the pro-abortion left pushed back hard, launching an intense smear campaign against Daleiden and CMP to discredit them while the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, as well as a number of subsidiaries beneath them, filed a lawsuit against Daleiden and CMP to silence their voices and suppress their videos.
That effort to squash Daleiden and hide from the public what CMP had exposed may have backfired on Planned Parenthood, though, as Daleiden and CMP have refused to back down and instead are fighting the lawsuit in court, as evidenced by the recent filing of a motion to compel the release of certain records.
Incredibly, LifeNews has reported that the court motion may make public documents which will show that Planned Parenthood may have fabricated certain records to hide what they were doing, and not only that, but also lied about as much in sworn testimony before a Congressional panel.
In the motion to compel filed with the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, the defendants — CMP, Daleiden and others — argued a number of legal precedents against the plaintiffs — Planned Parenthood Federation of America, a number of PP subsidiaries and third-party Advanced Bioscience Resources, among others — which they viewed as supportive of their demand that Planned Parenthood and ABR turn over certain documents and records as part of the discovery process.
Specifically, the defendants called for any documents and records that would show five specific things: a scheme to profit from the sale of fetal tissue, modifications to abortion procedures to facilitate such a profit, violations of the federal ban on partial-birth abortions as part of that scheme, the procurement of tissue from born-alive infants as part of the profit-making scheme and the procurement and sale of fetal tissues without the donor’s consent … all of which are illegal.
CMP has been seeking such documents for some time, but the plaintiffs have resisted such requests and made a number of different arguments to the court as to why they shouldn’t have to do so, hence the filing of the motion to compel.
After citing a number of legal precedents that undermined each argument put forward by Planned Parenthood to avoid turning over the requested documents and records, the motion from the defendants got to the heart of the matter in that they alleged the production of the records they seek would show discrepancies with records that Planned Parenthood had previously turned over to Congress.
That allegation was based on the fact that ABR had already produced certain documents and records — such as invoices — in response to an earlier subpoena from CMP, prior to ABR joining with PPFA in refusing to produce any further documents after what CMP alleged was “troubling” “attorney meddling” had occurred between the various plaintiffs in the case.
The motion alleged that there were substantial differences in invoices provided by ABR and two PP subsidiaries, Planned Parenthood Mar Monte and Planned Parenthood Pacific Southwest. Specifically, “The PPMM invoices produced match, but ABR and PPPSW produced different versions of the same invoice.” (Emphasis included in court filing.)
“Further, the revenue totals and procurement totals, when added up based on the invoices produced by ABR and Plaintiff PPPSW, do not match the totals that PPPSW reported to the Select Investigative Panel for fiscal year 2015,” the motion continued, noting that one of the totals produced was for $18,960.
“However the ABR fetal tissue invoices for July 2014 to December 2014 alone — half of fiscal year 2015 — show revenues of $21,120 from ABR for 352 fetal tissue donations,” the defendants revealed.
“It is unclear to Defendants why the invoices are not identical, or why the numbers do not add up, but it is perfectly possible that the invoices were subject to tampering and someone falsely reported information to Congress,” the motion argued. “Thus, it is critical that Defendants obtain access to third-party documents to verify that Plaintiffs are not producing fabricated evidence.”
As that motion to compel the release of the requested documents and records was just filed today — and is actually dated to take effect on November 29 — it could be some time before the judge rules one way or the other on this matter.
Daleiden told LifeNews, “This would not be the first time Planned Parenthood has apparently doctored critical evidence about their own wrongdoing.”
“Planned Parenthood has everything to lose if the full scope of their illicit trade in aborted baby body parts is revealed, and when the Congressional investigations made criminal referrals of Planned Parenthood and their business partners for selling baby parts, the House Select Panel had to refer Planned Parenthood partner StemExpress for evidence destruction.”
He added, “As the U.S. Department of Justice continues to follow up on the criminal referrals for Planned Parenthood and ABR, it is imperative for prosecutors to seize the original financial records from Planned Parenthood and their accomplices immediately, so these depraved enterprises cannot continue to cover up their criminal sale of baby body parts.”
