Since I didn’t see any other Pit thread concerning this, I’m cross posting this entry from my journal. I’m still angry at the thought of this. Wow, just…wow. :mad: :eek:
I found this news story today. I just sat there, mouth hanging open as I read it. What the hell is wrong with some people? How could that woman do what she did? How could she get any peace at all, knowing what she did?
At least the 16 year old likely had enough common sense to help their siblings survive. I wonder if this case will set precedents? If I were a prosecutor I’d be sorely tempted to try to prosecute her for some form of attempted murder/reckless endangerment. She left them behind, in a foriegn country to fend for themselves. Three of them contracted malaria. I cannot imagine being lost and unable to truly help myself without commiting a crime in this country, let alone a strange one with customs and languages I didn’t understand. Who knows what those kids had to do in order to get food. I hope she rots.
