Grandmother to face capital murder charge in girl's running death

GADSDEN, Ala. -- Alabama prosecutors say they are filing a capital murder charge, which carries the possibility of the death penalty, against a grandmother accused of running her 9-year-old granddaughter to death as punishment for eating chocolate.

I don’t know if any of you saw this in the news, but it simply broke my heart. The story had a picture of this little girl and she was so adorable. Then I shake my head and wonder. I wonder why some people in this world get the gift of child and then turn around and treat them like animals. Less than animals.

The kid was caught eating chocolate and so the punishment was that her mother and grandmother made her run around the yard non-stop for hours but also, while carrying a ten pound log. They made her run until she dropped. Dropped dead.

Both, the mother and grandmother are locked up and awaiting trial. The grandmother faces multiple charges of involuntary manslaughter, child abuse, endangerment, while the mother faces child endangerment charges along with accessory.

Very sad.

While I don’t yearn anymore for a wife situation or marriage, I don’t think I would mind at all to raise a child. (By myself) I would even probably give adoption some very serious considerations only, a single man would never be allowed to adopt. That’s because the media has made just about every man look like a pedophile.

All I do know is, if these two ladies didn’t want to raise that little girl, they could have always have sent her to my home. At least she would be alive today and very happy and very loved.

Very sad.

Come on everyone, love the children.
