There is a lot going on in the life of former Teen Mom 2-star Jenelle Evans. After her husband David Eason was accused of killing the family dog, Evans and Eason were ordered to give up custody of the three children who lived with them.
Earlier this month, they were allowed to have custody of the children again – although not everyone is satisfied with this current situation. Fans on the internet do not hold back their thoughts at all and will not hesitate to tell how they feel. Read below what the fans have to say about the children going back to Evans and Eason.
How did Jenelle Evans regain custody of her kids?
After the incident with the family dog, a judge found that their parental home was not a safe environment for the children to live in. As such, the judge demanded that the children be removed from their care and that the couple take steps to prove that they could care for their children.
Evans and Eason were obliged to attend parental lessons, to test medicines and to counsel. In the case of Eason, who was known for his anger management problems, he was also instructed to undergo a psychological evaluation.
The detention was expected to take months, but not long ago a new judge came in, who had rejected everything. According to the new judge, there was a lack of evidence provided by Child Protective Service that Evans and Eason were an irrational couple of parents. That is why their children had to be sent back by July 4.
How do fans feel about this situation?
Many spectators are not particularly enthusiastic about the decision of the new judge. A fan at Reddit.com said, “If something happens to those kids, I hope it will haunt that judge for the rest of his life.”
Many people are seriously concerned about the safety of the children because both Evans and Eason have shown that they are willing to put the children in dangerous situations. There are even reports that a disturbing amount of abuse could occur in their household.
“This is only going to get worse,” said another person. “The abuse will almost certainly escalate. Sharper, harder threats, more mysterious physical damage, deeper manipulation, so that the children are too scared or too emotionally injured to say anything (nobody will care, nobody will help them, etc.). “
“I hate being sick, but I see only one of the two options here,” one commenter added, “1) Eventually they will lose the children and they will return to court. 2) Someone is leaving for a day in a body bag. “
The fans following this trial have also come to the realization that the system designed to protect children in this country unfortunately also has many flaws.
“Those of you who are really shocked think of the thousands of children who are even worse and are sent back to their parents each time. Single. Time,” someone shared. “There is only so much that CPS can do, and reunification is usually the end goal. Children are failing. It’s so damn shame.”
Could Jenelle Evans lose custody again?
Fans are not the only people who are angry about the court’s decision. Evans’ mother, Barbara Evans, and her ex-boyfriend, Nathan Griffith, are also not happy and it seems like they are fighting for the children.
Barbara Evans took care of their youngest, Ensley, while the couple went through the custody battle. After the judge decided, she told Radar Online that “it was an injustice for the children” and “we are all sick of our stomach”.
Meanwhile, Griffith shares a son, Kaiser, with Jenelle Evans and has been trying to win full custody since last year. According to Griffith, Eason has abused Kaiser physically and verbally. He also claimed that Jenelle Evans used drugs during pregnancy and Kaiser was born with THC in his system.
However, it remains to be seen whether Evans and Eason lose custody of their children.
