He is very abusive. He has hit me with a vacuum cleaner, choked me, all sorts of things. I am also very sure he sells drugs. His girlfriend was in the house one time when he beat me up really bad, she said nothing. Cops have come before and he made us all lie. He trained my, then four year old, sister to say "no" when they asked if he hits us. Not the best kids, but nowhere near the worst. Our mom died in 2008. My other sister tried to kill herself because of him. She took pills (the ones I think he sells-- he has tons and tons of them) and went into a self induced coma. She was 10. I graduate this year. When I become financially stable, can I take custody of at least one of my sisters? My father always threatens me saying I cant leave even if im 18 or he'll make my life hell. Please help!
