Societal ills in America continue to rear their ugly heads in shocking and gruesome manners. This is plain to see, amid rising crime, growing drug use, the import of drugs into the United States, and rampant homelessness.
Unfortunately, many leaders have chosen to look the other way and ignore what’s happening. Others are finger-pointing and doing their best to assign blame as a means of scoring political points.
In either scenario, everyday Americans lose out and get the short end of the stick. Yet another case of this happening has emerged, this time out of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, according to the Western Journal.
In Milwaukee, two nude underage boys were spotted by neighbors walking around outside, apparently having no prior exposure to daylight.
After the authorities were notified of this, it was discovered that these boys were living in a home with their mother, Katie Koch, and her boyfriend. Both adults stand accused of holding these young boys as prisoners for years on end.

The only reason these kids were spotted outside is because they secretly got out by exiting from a window. Also, both boys were imprisoned in such a dirty environment that the floor was lined with trash.
According to law enforcement, the home where Koch and her boyfriend held these kids even smelled like fecal matter.
What Brought This On?
Right now, it’s a mystery as to what prompted these two adults to hold children hostage in such an awful manner for years at a time.

Nevertheless, Koch and her boyfriend are now staring down felony and misdemeanor charges. So far, neighbors of the family in Milwaukee made it clear they’re surprised by all of this and never suspected anything wrong was happening at Koch’s residence.
On social media, Americans have understandably reacted with shock, disgust, and outrage.
