What has bothered me about this story all along is that it perpetuates the old stereotype of Gypsies stealing children. The Roma have been outcasts for most of recorded history, and here we are, in 2013, still perpetuating that myth.

Would anybody have cared if she had brown hair? Sounds like the kind of fostering that went on in this country 2 generations ago all the time.

A baby girl was given to a couple who cared for her--housed her, fed her, loved her--for years, and we are going to arrest them because they didn't do the paperwork that they couldn't afford. Release them, give them their daughter, help them with the paperwork, thank them for their generosity and apologize.

The whole story is not here. Major welfare fraud was part of the investigation.

Why is the little girl being permanently taken away from the only parents she knows? This family cared for a child that was abandoned by her biological mother. The Nazi's murdered many of these people during WWII. Why in the 21st century is the media vilifying them?

"…with their nine other children" It's not just the Roma. All over the globe we humans are breeding like cockroaches. Something is gonna break.
