Default "Sick" people in this world

Here is a link to a heartbreaking story. Some people are just sick in the head. Really makes me mad and sad that people can be so cruel to someone they are supposed to love and care for.

I'm glad they have been arrested. I just don't understand parents that can inflict such pain on their children - physical, mental or sexual.
It is a sad world for many.

I saw on our local news last night that the mother and grandmother of this poor little child were killed in an apparent murder suicide shortly after the mother posted bail.
I will never understand, not ever how anyone could hurt another human being. let alone a child.

From the story:

"Several witnesses have told police that they saw the alleged abuse taking place."

And did nothing.

ARGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!

Prayers for what looks to be God's newest angel.....

I agree Born2Cruise - where were these witnesses while this abuse was happening? Did anyone come forward to help this little girl? Sounds like the mother got off too easy - by dying. Did the world a favour if you ask me. How can people do this to children? It's a sad, sick world we live in - indeeed!
