They Did It For His “Own Good”

I think people who beat their kids are evil. I think people who choose to spend little time with their kids for their own selfish reasons is pretty bad, too. But this couple….this vile, disgusting couple. There aren’t enough words to fully describe how awful they are.

JACKSONVILLE — The police description of the 9-year-old boy’s home sounds like a prison: he was locked in a bedroom for much of three years, did not attend school, had no friends and was watched by his father on a surveillance camera that tracked his every move.

The boy’s ordeal finally ended Wednesday when authorities arrested his father on child abuse and other charges. Officials now are trying to determine what led Randall Warren Piercy, 41, to allegedly treat his son that way and why no one stopped him.

…and why no one stopped him.

That would be the mother of this boy who saw him regularly but did NOTHING to save him…and possibly other relatives. The boy who was reportedly “home schooled” but at the age of nine couldn’t read a child’s book. A boy who was NEVER seen in the neighborhood by neighbors who had lived there 40+ years.

The Piercy home, located off a private rural road, had cameras in almost every room, with the father monitoring the boy on television and computer screens, sheriff’s Lt. Annie Smith said.

“According to our investigator, it appears that the Piercy home was a prison, and the child has never attended school, has no friends, does not receive medical attention, and may have been cut off from any human contact other than family,'’ Smith said.

Relatives shared stories such as the boy only being allowed to go to the bathroom once a day because the “dad” thought he needed to learn how to control his body. This “DAD” is being charged with aggravated child abuse, malicious punishment and unlawful caging of the boy. Of course this sick waste of a human being said he was being misjudged as he was doing this in the “best interest” of the boy. Oh, yeah. Methinks you were doing it because you are a heathen, a miscreant, and stand with one foot in the pit of hell. …and of course the “mother,” Michelle Piercy, hasn’t been charged with anything just yet. But read this and tell me she isn’t as guilty as the “Dad” is:

“We are very protective,'’ she said, adding that the cameras are so his parents can make sure he doesn’t hurt himself. She said the boy was hyperactive and was locked in his room at night to prevent him from going outside and getting hurt.

According to a police report, investigators were told Michelle Piercy allowed her husband to make all the decisions regarding the boy and that she doesn’t even know what size he wears or what television shows or games he likes. The report said her husband only let her see the boy at certain times and usually an hour a day.

Luckily an undercover investigator prompted this case to move forward. Unluckily, it’s likely there will never be enough justice served on behalf of a nine year old boy who was served a life sentence by the very people he was supposed to be able to trust.

Oh my God, Merri! AWFUL!!!
You're right, there will never be justice for this. I'm not even sure what kind of justice there IS for it. Maybe at least locking both parents up in a mental institution, or something, because they're clearly beyond fucked up.

The poor child, though! How on earth do you even repair the damage they've done?!

Anyone in that whole family who knew of it is just as guilty!

I am embarrassed that I lived in Jacksonville when I read this. it was just sick. There are far more guilty parties than the dad himself.

The whole family should simply be euthanized. Mom and dad are beyond pity. The poor kid, through no fault of his own, is damaged so profoundly I doubt he can be repaired with materials on board. Besides, he might carry a genetic predisposition for whatever is wrong with mom & pop. The other relatives and neighbors of this grotesque family should be interrogated and also euthanized if they knew what was happening and did nothing about it. Same goes for the local officials who are charged with child welfare in Jacksonville.

Wait a minute. On second thought, my suggestion seems a bit harsh. Perhaps they could just all move to Arkansas.

Randy is being charged with sexual battery on a child, aggravated child abuse and child neglect. He has been in jail for 6 months and still going to pretrial hearings. Depostitions of witnesses and discovery will take a while but until then there is no trial date set yet. His next pretrial hearing is on May 2. His bond is $750,000.
