they got what they deserved why do i feel kinda bad about it?

these people i know are being charged with several counts of child abuse, got into trouble with housing, and lost their pell grants. they post pics of their kids bruised from head to toe, these arent the typical fall down get hurt bruises. their kids are always dirty and the oldest 2 are still in diapers they are 7 and 5. instead of paying bills and tution they used their money to buy 4 newer cars years 97 to 02, big screen tv the newest x box and a wii. i was frustrated that they got away with abusing their kids and the system but now i feel bad that i was glad at first that they finally got caught. the parents both are facing several years of prison time for different things they done wrong

  • I think you feel bad that they went so far astray. You feel bad that they screwed up their life that much. You have a good heart, that's a kind and thoughtful way to be. It's a very sad situation.

  • Why do you feel bad about it? You are probably thinking about the fact that the kids will lose their parents. Doesn't matter that they were horrible parents......if they had been better parents, things would have been different.

  • Your human and humans have empathy toward one another..
    Try not to feel bad that you felt glad...your feelings did not make them do what you say they did to those children,they did that on thier own. Try to think about the positive end of it all..the kids will no longer suffer at thier greedy hands.

    and my wish was granted but i dont ever see them they went int o foster care i could have gotten them but them i would have went to jail i would have hurt my daughter so again i prayed for alot and i have came to turms with myself she got what she deserved she has no family no kids and no friends because of what she did

  • No reason for you to feel bad. They knew the consequences of their actions
