Six children were removed from a home in Memphis, TN after a frantic string of events led to a small boy being found tied to shed.

The  bizarre investigation started when Memphis police received a call that the young boy was in danger, reports:

“Just to make me think about it, it’s awful,” said neighbor Elaine Evans. “You know, we speak like you speak to your neighbors, don’t try to get in their business, but they seem pretty nice people, but you never know.”

Several neighborhood children said the boy was chained up at least once before when they wanted him to play basketball with them.

“Then he was like ‘I can’t, I’m chained up’ and I said ‘why you chained up?’ And he said ‘ask my mama,'” said one neighborhood boy.

Police contacted the Department of Children’s Services, whose investigators joined officers on the scene for much of the day. DCS is working to determine the relationship between the adults inside the house and the children.

Police discovered six children in the home ranging from two to 14 years old. So far no charges have been filed.

    Save the taxpayers of Memphis some $ and chain the parents to some trees, pour honey over them and then leave em –see how they like that!!!

    Giving these POS parents jailtime is a total waste!!!!
