Victor Adams and Carolyn Walker.
Police went to the home of 30-year-old Victor Adams and 23-year-old Carolyn Walker on Sunday evening in response to a neighbor's call about a fight.

According to court documents, the responding officer saw inside the home, near 69th and Glendale avenues, when Walker answered the door, and he and other officers went inside to check the welfare of everyone, including three children.

". . . Myself and other officers immediately smelled the pungent odor of rotten food, human feces, human urine, and dog feces and urine," the arresting officer writes in a probable-cause statement. "Upon clearing the entire home, there was mud, tomato sauce, and feces scattered on the tile flooring . . . Human feces was also scattered on the home's drywall in the master bedroom and hallway . . . The master bedroom toilet had been defecated in and not flushed with the toilet itself being completely brown with no white porcelain to be seen, as if it had not been cleaned in months."

Police also found garbage throughout the home, and nothing edible for the children. According to court documents, dirt was the only thing in the refrigerator.

Officers found Adams hiding under a pile of clothes in the master bedroom. Child Protective Services workers responded to the home, and immediately took custody of the children after going inside the home.

Adams and Walker were arrested on child-abuse and neglect charges. According to court documents, the couple had been investigated by CPS on three separate occasions in 2012 and 2013 for deplorable living conditions.

Just because you can have children doesn't mean you should. Stupid, ignorant, drug addicted people should not be able to breed. Those poor babies, I am sad they are born into their situation. Glad to see police cracking down on child abuse, we must protect those that cannot protect themselves.

And here again we have the problem of Children raising children, and we have to go back to problems, civic problems that a city, and County Have not been able to address fully for we still have the problem of education, unemployment Job Creation Health coverage, and most basic social problems that have eroded our society for years, but government legislators tend to be aloof to them and this is what kills society as a whole at State or national level, is this what we want as the future of this State? as a future for Our Country??? WE NEED TO TALK!!!

But those white women and men can't get arrested because they'll be separated from their families!  So where's your sympathy and protests in support of them?

In the case of that first pair of fuckheads, the house should be declared unfit for human habitation. When they get out of County, he should be placed in ICE detention. She should lose all parental rights.
