The Knuckleheads of the Day award
Today's winner is Randall and Michelle Piercy. They get the award for the following.
Jacksonville · A man has been charged with torturing his 9-year-old son by keeping him locked in a bedroom for much of the past three years, authorities said Thursday.What the @#%^@! was the mother doing while this was going on. Knucklehead doesn't do justice to these two pieces of slime. Its stories like this that make me ill.
The home of Randall Warren Piercy, 41, was like a prison that had cameras in almost every room, with the father monitoring the boy on television and computer screens, Jacksonville Sheriff's Office Lt. Annie Smith said. Police did not say the child was beaten, but he was apparently happy to be removed from the home, she said.
During the past three years, the boy has not attended school, received medical attention or had contact with people outside his family, Smith said. The police report said he was home schooled, though he could not read children's books.
Relatives told police the boy was usually allowed to use the bathroom once a day because his father was teaching him to control his body.
Piercy was arrested Wednesday on charges of aggravated child abuse, malicious punishment and unlawful caging of the boy. As officers walked him into jail, he said he was wrongly accused and the victim of a vendetta by his in-laws. He told police he kept the child in the room because he "believed it was in the best interest of the child," Smith said.
The child's mother, Michelle Piercy, was not charged, but police said they were still investigating her involvement. She told WTLV-TV the child was not abused.
For heinously abusing their own flesh and blood, Randall and Michelle Piercy are today's knuckleheads of the day.
