Sickened again I

Regarding the news story “Mother, maternal grandparents charged in abuse of Mercer County boy” : Once again I am horrified to see another child starved, to the point of near death, and the alleged perpetrators of this crime walk free on insignificant bond. The print version of this story was a front-page sideline, with the Steelers' coach the featured story. Also, there was major discussion on the immigrant children's welfare further on inside the newspaper. Where is justice?

Were there no neighbors to see this starved child? Why were the paternal grandparents and the father satisfied not to be allowed to see the child? Why isn't attempted homicide included in the charges?

It isn't enough to say they will rot in hell if convicted! Some example needs to be made that puts the fear of God into savage people who turn against their own flesh and blood in such inhumane ways.

Do you remember Kristen Tater? She was one of my foster children, returned to her “parents” and starved to death. There needs to be public outcry over these children! Let this child be the last. Let this be our moral obligation.
