Electric-shock dog collared child abuse

When I read this, I literally threw up a little in my mouth. Sick, sick, sick.

A grand jury will decide in early December whether to indict a Tennessee man on charges that he raped two of his daughters and forced them to wear an electric-shock dog collar. His wife may also face trial for failing to intervene.

Burkhart’s 17-year-old daughter told authorities in a Sept. 10 interview that she had been sexually and physically abused by her father, according to the complaint affidavit. “Among other things, her father [the defendant] uses dog collars equipped with electric shock to train his hunting dogs, and that he uses the collar on her to shock her and her 19-year-old sister,” the affidavit reads.

The 17-year-old daughter said that Wayne Burkhart had raped her over the summer, according to the documents, a claim that her older sister, 18, also made to police. In each instance, the girls reported that the father had sex with them without consent.

Honestly, this is one sick piece of shit. I can’t believe that anyone, let alone a father, would do this. And yes, their stepmother should have stepped in and done something, but hey, what’s to say he would have started abusing her if she did do something? There’s something seriously wrong with this man. Pretty much torturing your own children? Sick.

    this happened here in Knoxville, TN where I live. This is one of the reasons we are fighting so hard for family court and child services reform here.
    Then about 3 weeks ago a 15 year old was killed in foster care and a neighbor came on the news to say she had reported them 5 times and nothing was every done.
