    I wondered how the dad got custody in the first place. The only thing I found was that the bio-mom said they forged her signature on some paperwork. I hope she is stable enough to deal with the kids after what they've been through.

    That youtube channel was generating $10,000 per MONTH. Pretty good money in filming child abuse.
    I can't think of anything witty to say for my signature line.

    Ok I couldn't even make it through the video of those two. It's the most obviously faked guilt and sadness I've ever seen. With the exception my abusive ex-fiancé who could cry on command and manipulate emotionally with the best of them.

    I can't even bring myself to the article. In fact, I couldn't even get through all of tpatt's summary.
    If you are not willing to fall flat on your face, then the only thing you will have is a pretty face.

    I watched just a few seconds of a video and felt disgusted and ashamed that I gave these shitheads a click, they deserve to be thrown in jail. How could so many people watch this as entertainment?

    In May, the couple lost custody of Cody and Emma who are Michael Martin's biological children and Heather Martin's stepchildren.

    Under the terms of their probation, the Martins are not allowed to have contact with Cody and Emma, unless dictated by a judge in their ongoing custody case. They are also not allowed to post videos featuring Cody and Emma on social media.
    Good. Assholes.

    I never watched the videos when the story first came to light but I just read the article Sprock linked to and saw the pictures - how anyone could think the video that those pictures taken from were funny is beyond me. What's horrifying is that there are three other children in the home - all older than these two - but obviously not a target of the "pranks" which makes me wonder how these two must feel - step mother's kids don't get abused and recorded - only daddy's kids do . Heartbreaking

    The videos are sickening, those people are demented and shouldn't be allowed around children.

    The father hates the kid named Cody
    Opportunities are usually disguised as hard work, so most people don't recognize them.
