She was a Russian orphan who was adopted at age 5 by a wealthy Pittsburgh businessman for the sole purpose of sexually abusing her, and the man got 15 years.  Hmmmm...and how is that justice?  Not to mention that as an adult she lives in hiding with a new name, because she was seen all over the internet in pornographic photos posted by her adopted father as a child!  I hope she wins MILLIONS!!!!

The fact that he had to be convicted twice before he was taken off the streets is unfair to all children! Why do we continue to allow monsters like him access to our children after the first time they are convicted?

Stepmother in Madison child abuse case gets five years in prison
Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
The girl's stepbrother, who was charged with sexual assault of the girl and child abuse, is scheduled to stand trial early next year.
Jweninger1's insight:

The girl lost 6 years of her life being tortured and will need many more years to try and heal the physical and mental wounds she received while in the care of her father and stepmother, but the D.A. only asked for 8 years in prison for the stepmonster and she was only sentenced to 5 years.  Does anyone else see the injustice in this case?  Why are we allowing monsters like these "parents" (I hate to call them parents) to spend minimal time in jail after they spent 6 years abusing this child so horrifically that she was found weighing less than 70 lbs at the age of 16!  Locked away in a basement, no school, no toilet, repeatedly sexually assaulted and that's the punishment for the stepmother who was at least 50% responsible if not more for this child's suffering!  WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS COUNTRY!  WHERE IS THE JUSTICE FOR CHILDREN??  WHY ARE THEY NOT GIVEN THE SAME WEIGHT AS ADULTS WITH OUR LEGAL SYSTEM WHEN IT COMES TO THE VALUE OF THEIR LIVES??

“Bible-based” discipline has led to child abuse

“Bible-based” discipline has led to child abuse | Little Voices Matter | Scoop.it

In 2008, Hana Williams was adopted from an orphanage in Ethiopia and brought to the United States where she died at the hands of her Bible-believing American parents. Their notion of Christian discipline required breaking her will, a remarkably common belief among conservative Evangelicals. To that end, they frequently beat her, shut her in a closet, and denied her meals. Ultimately, she was left outside where she died of hypothermia exacerbated by malnutrition. They were convicted of manslaughter this month. In carrying out their obsession with child obedience, Hana’s adoptive parents drew tips from Tennessee preacher Michael Pearl, whose spare-the-rod-spoil-the-child book, To Train Up a Child, has been found now in three homes of Christian parents who killed their adopted children. 

Jweninger1's insight:

If you believe in a loving God, how can you believe that this type of torture and cruelty to one of his children would be an acceptable form of discipline? It is really a matter of basic common sense when you are following God's laws.  The outcome of death is 100% WRONG by ALL LAWS!

Childhelp, Erin Merryn and Michael Reagan team up to protect children

Childhelp, Erin Merryn and Michael Reagan team up to protect children | Little Voices Matter | Scoop.it
Childhelp is part of a coalition who are dedicated to making every child in this country safe from predators.
Jweninger1's insight:

It's time we step up and protect the children suffering in this nation. Politicians need to understand the significant impact child abuse has on this country, because choosing to NOT spend the money on Prevention Education for any reason, is UNACCEPTABLE and the costs related to a child who is severely abused will far exceed that of any form of prevention education.  

We wouldn't need more CPS workers if we were preventing abuse.  Prevention Education is the only proven deterrent for child abuse, so why are we not focusing our energy and dollars on it?
