RG’s Day at the Zoo With Cherry Vile Prep (Part 9)

December 1, 2008

Lest you fear Carnation is a one-note town, in another case in Carnation, a mother (with the apparent acquiescence of her husband) treated her daughter with such cruelty-starving the child and refusing to let her drink enough water to satisfy normal thirst-that the behavior probably qualifies as torture. The child, when finally rescued by authorities, was stunted and suffered from badly rotted teeth and probably suffered permanent brain damage. She expressed a wish to die. A brother was raised and cared for “normally.” We have no idea what he is like.

    Probably not as “normal” as one would imagine.

    How sad. I hope they string the parents up.

    this kind of story makes me physically sick.

    Me too. It’s an interesting phenomenon of human nature. I read Blood and Soil, a history of genocide, with my emotions carefully numbed, but one specific story of one miserable tortured child shoots right through my defenses.
