Chaining 6-Year-Old Son to Bed: The Ultimate Crime

A 28 year old father was found chaining his 6 year old son to his bed as a sort of punishment. This just might be the most brutal form of neglect and child abuse ever seen.

The man lived in Utah and left for work leaving his son alone and chained to the bedpost. After receiving clues from a source, the police ventured to his home and broke into it.

They found the poor kid tied with chains to the bed. The horror this crime evokes in anyone who has the milk of human kindness in his heart is too much to even describe.

The little one was chained with a lock to the bedpost. "There was some snack-type food available to the child," Logan Police Chief Gary Jensen said. "The chain was just long enough for him to get to the bathroom."

Just imagine the mental state of a small wonder that was being treated so brutally. Child abuse is the only name that can be given to such behavior.

Charges have been filed against the evil dad. The name of the father is Sammie Hodges and he chained up his son in his home at 825 N. 1400 East.

What remains unsolved is the amount of time this monster has been abusing his son in such a perverse manner. The crazy father was also guilty of other crimes having to do with forgery and theft some time back.

He is currently in police custody. As for the boy, he is being psychologically evaluated for any damage that may have been done to his psyche due to his father’s cruel treatment.

"He appears relatively healthy, albeit that's going to mess with your head," Jensen said. "But from a physical perspective, he appears to be healthy."

Such cases of child abuse and gross neglect are all too common in today’s messed up world. "It's scary to report abuse sometimes," Trina Taylor, executive director of Prevent Child Abuse Utah, said, "and a lot of us, as adults, we're afraid, but we have to be the ones with courage. We have to be the brave ones to protect our children and be willing to make that phone call."

"Gosh, we're just grateful, grateful they were willing to take that step forward," Jensen said, "because had that person not taken that step forward, this child would still be chained to a bed."

When you find so many people slipping through the cracks, the feeling you get is one of sadness and helplessness. It seems that the reverse side of civilization is barbarism and savagery on a scale unheard of hitherto.
