Police ID parents charged with leaving 3 children,  malnourished man

Police arrested the mother and stepfather of three unsupervised children and a disabled adult who appeared malnourished after officers found them in a southwest Atlanta residence. Shalanda Monroe, 38, and Jarvais Monroe, 33, returned to the scene and were taken into custody Saturday, police spokesman John Chafee said. Officers responded to the house in the the 3000 block of Thornberry Lane on Saturday about 5:30 p.m., according to Chafee. The people who called police had moved out of the house about three weeks ago, according to Chafee. “They returned to the home today to retrieve some of their property, when they located the children and 21-year-old in the home,” Chafee said.  This family apparently had moved into the home after the people who called police moved out, police said. The mother and stepfather were charged with violating state law on protection of disabled adults and elder persons. The children appeared to be in good health, police said. Their ages were not released.  Chafee said it is his understanding that the woman is mother to the disabled man and the three children. “The children have been placed in the care of a family member, and (the Division of Family and Children Services) is following up with them,” Chafee said. The disabled man, who is 21, was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital in critical condition. Police are still investigating. In other news:

Digging into the release of the Carter Page FISA application

President Donald Trump on Sunday accused the FBI and Justice Department of misleading a special intelligence court, as both parties wrestled over the details of surveillance requests made in 2016 and 2017 on a one-time Trump Campaign aide, Carter Page, in which the FBI made the case that “Page has been collaborating and conspiring with the Russian Government.”

“Witch Hunt Rigged, a Scam!” the President tweeted from his New Jersey golf club, as he again denounced the investigation into Russian interference of the 2016 elections, and any possible ties to the Trump Campaign.
