They need to add 1 count of FELONY bad theme song. TMZ do some digging. It ends, "richard heene science detective." It was a song written for a show, this d-bag was pitching to one of the networks. It sounded like the theme was being sung by a cat that just had its tail stepped on.

I live near Fort Collins Co. The sheriff really wants these people nailed because it looked embarrassing for the Sheriff. I feel so bad for the kids, made to lie to achieve so-called fame.

These people have no money. They should be forced to clean trash on the side of the road. Taking their kids away would only be punishment for the state paid caretakers. They should be made to educate and discipline their children properly. Teach them manners etc. Where are the grandparents in all this. They should make them all live together and leave us alone!!

Is Hee Hee's wifey living with him & the kids???!!! OMG! If she is, she needs to be careful & not get beat up AGAIN and probably the kids, too!!!! I agree with an earlier input, if Hee Hee verbally blaming Falcon (Falcoon!), I'm sure the kid is doing more than throwing up!!!!! Hee Hee & his wifey MUST do prison time & those kids MUST be taken away!!!!! Where is Child Protective Services?????????? We, tax payers, are gonna be paying BIG time when the kids grow up & start "acting out"!!!!!!

The whole ordeal was stressful to the kid,
all the questioning led him to vomit.
He knew it was all wrong. I also got
the impression that the father is pretty
stern with them, just by seeing the kids
worry on their faces.

I hope this father corrects the damage
he's done and let's the lil boy know it
was not his fault. It might save them some
therapy needed in the long run.

justice is mine says the lord    

I was just wondering to myself and OUTLOUD....when the hell is the DA in LA COUNTY in California going to get the Michael Jackson case?
He has been dead for 4 months now, and they have had more than enough time to have this all together. If they really are looking into this and planning to give it the very best that they can, even their BEST shouldnt take 4 months! They have said his death was a Homicide....then prosecute the jerk that pulled the trigger on that gun already!

This story is really sad. Those children deserve real parents, but instead, they got these two clowns.

Definitely prosecute the delusional parents. Put the kids in a foster home. Then let's see what kind of reality series Heene can conjure up.
