"It ain't what they call you, it's what you answer to." - W. C. Fields
The charges are making more sense, "District Attorney Jimmie Harp said Garrard was charged with the capital crime because the child's death occurred during another felony, child abuse." The grandmother forced the 9 year old to run and carry firewood until she collapsed in exhaustion in her yard. Autopsy photos show marks on the girl's arms from where the logs dug into her skin. The autopsy also revealed the girl was severely dehydrated and had extremely low sodium levels. They compared her condition to that of an athlete who ran a marathon without drinking any water. "
While the "punishment" was going on, it is alleged the stepmother "spent time on her laptop and talking on a cellphone while her stepdaughter was forced to run"
The grandmother was sadistic no doubt as there have been medical reports from an unrelated custody case show the child had health issues and made frequent trips to doctors. Both the stepmother, who was awarded custody and the grandmother are equally at fault here.
This child never had a chance with these two people who were entrusted with her care.
Jesus tap dancing Christ on a pogo stick, does anyone actually read anymore? Or perhaps understand a bit of statistics? Go back to school.
You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo
