Sadly the people ie the tax payers will likely be fitting the bill for his pathetic eating habits
They DEFINITELY WILL, as it now stands. The state has place the kid in Foster Care, and that is funded BY THE STATE. So as long as this kid is in Foster Care, and that can be until the child reaches majority at 18, it care and feeding and everything else will fall upon the taxpayers.
Bury your dead, pick up your weapon and soldier on.
