    Shame on you KXII, you need to look through your files and see that you have even used Mr. Gamble as a "medical expert" or at the very least someone to relay medical information to your viewers, at one time you trusted him, yet you give him no air time to defend himself?? I think KXII has "small-town, hillbilly" mentality if it fails to report the facts...not accusations is it endangering the children to have them around none drug dealers? Their "aunt" was mixing drugs up in the barn on the same property that the woman and her children lived in just before Mr. Gamble bought a house for them all to live in. Their "real " dad only pays a portion of his child support and has them all sleeping in the same room in a hotel and the kids on the floor...is dhs looking into that? The real dad works part time at a restaurant. The real story should be told and it is your journalistic duty to do so responsibly

    What about people that put soap in their kids mouth for saying a bad word is that any different? I think soap in the mouth is worse than this...yet you people are ready to execute this man. It makes no since what so ever.

    I know that this could have been anyone, but after working with this man for several years, I find it hard to believe that he would have done this, There must be more to the story than what is being told, I think everyone should chill and know that there could me a misunderstanding in this situation!!!! He has always been a wonderful compasionate person, caring for patients and family members as if they were his own, I seriously doubt this is true, I will be praying for him and the family and little girl!!!
