Kids in trunk unacceptable | Letter

The recent issue in Bothell where the couple was found with children and a dog unfed in the trunk and the parents having used drugs has me extremely worried. I find it rather concerning that people with habits such as the ones this couple has, can put children and animals in situations such as these. The fact that these people were not suitable parents was probably not much of a surprise to their peers, so I believe that someone should have stepped forward and said something before the situation became increasingly dangerous.

This issue is very important because children have little say in what happens around them, and it is an adult’s job to protect them, which no one did from these children’s own parents. The children and animals should be placed in a safe home where they will be in a healthy, loving environment. The police handled the situation very well and probably saved the lives of these children, and improved their futures.

To avoid future issues such as these, those who knew the situation in which these children were in should have done something about it.
