Gale Epple has been labeled a monster after he was secretly filmed by a babysitter using a stun gun on his one-year-old and two-year-old babies. Gale, 22, told the babysitter that the stun gun does not hurt them and simply uses it to discipline them. The babysitter confronted the mother and asked about the bruises; she said she never took them to the hospital because they would take her children away for doing nothing wrong.
Cops and officials from Social Services Children’s Division raided Gale’s home and found the children lying on infected cockroach mattresses without sheets or pillows. Epple has been charged with three counts of child abuse, while the mother was charged with three counts of child endangerment.
