Bad Case of Child Abuse

by Chris
(Location Unknown)

Baby M* was only 2 years of age when her parents tortured her to death. They used cigarettes to burn her earlobes off, starved her, forced her to drink shampoo and pulled off her fingernails.

I think child abuse is awful. I believe children are our future. Treat them well and let them lead the way. Show them all the beauty they possess inside. Give them a sense of pride to make it easier. Let the laughter of children remind us how we used to be.

I decided long ago never to walk in anyone's shadow. If I fail, if I succeed, at least I'll have my dignity because the greatest love of all is happening to me. Learning to love yourself is the greatest love of all!!!

*NOTE FROM DARLENE: The name provided with this submission was changed, as I was unable to find the details of the case referred to above, and therefore was unable to confirm the identity of the child. Any similarities or connection made with an actual case using the name "Baby M" is purely coincidental.

So true...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

Children ARE our future. If we don't treat them with the dignity and respect they deserve, we as a society will get back in spades the way we DID treat them. Only we'll be older and these children will be making decisions for us in the form of laws and governing and in the choices they make for their aging and ailing family members when these abused children become adults.

Thank you, Chris, for iterating your all-important message.

I can relate

Geez, Chris, your story about that Baby M case literally reminds me of that Baby P case; that idiot stepdad and his loser brother tore off Baby P's fingernails with the stepdad's favourite knife, subjected him (Baby P) to his favourite dogs (some terrier and the Rottweiller) biting the crap out of Baby P, and lots of disgusting tortures that I can't even explain to you even further (as I am disgusted of that gruesome torture and strongly refuse to go into the detail) while his lazy good-for-nothing mom (the stepdad's girlfriend) just watched, played online poker and even chatted online. And those cowardly social workers literally did nothing to save Baby P from those sadistic idiots. I am so sorry. Well, at least Baby M is already in heaven, cradled in the loving arms of God and the angels while her nasty so-called parents should've been in prison for life cuz that is the only place that they ever deserve.

Those sick twisted losers were not true parents.
They were just losers who had a kid. i hope they know they'ere losers. Those losers should be getting death. Losers like that get beaten in jail.
RIP sweet baby
