    If it is a hoax, I think the parents have figured out there is not much to gain.

    i am a mother of 4, 3 of which are boys, and now the grandmother of six, all girls. one of those happens to be 6 years old now. my point is i can't tell you how many times one of these children have heard something,like it is for show, and then said something that translates to something that is entirely different. how many of you have actually lived through having one six year old child?

    Thank God the child is fine. Of course he hid. How many of us parents are guilty of yelling at children and scaring them? Children hide when they are afraid they will be spanked or yelled at. And what did the father do? He yelled at the child. I was an educator and mother and found the best way to handle children and the things they will do and say by creating the motivation for telling the truth. The little ones are so easy to figure out.

    A defense attorney that is defending his client's guilt... Are we on the other side of the looking glass?

    This is truly frightening...
