Officers in Middlesex Township east of Harrisburg were called to the Regency Woods North Trailer Park after neighbors called police to report that three children were playing in the middle of a busy highway.

Two of the children were returned home, but the third said his mother and her boyfriend weren't home, but that his grandmother was taking care of him and his sibling.

The Harrisburg Patriot-News reports that when the officers arrived at the trailer, they became concerned for the children living there.

The child gave them permission to enter the home. Inside, they found horrendous living conditions. 

'The entire home was consumed with animal feces and filth,' according to a police report.

The children were taken into state custody and the elderly woman was taken by ambulance to the hospital for treatment.

Bohn and Karns were arrested later that evening.

Their Facebook pages show at least two dogs and cat. Among the family pets is a miniature dachshund named 'Coco Jelly Bean.'

Bohn appears to work at GameStop and Karns is employed at Al's Pizza in Mechanicsburg.

All these articles do, and all like them, is show the societal collapse gripping America, who would have thought that attacking the traditional family, poisoning the food, the air, the water, the education system, pumping kids full of prescription drugs, exposing their minds to endless advertisement and subliminal messages, that it would have a negative effect
