Most gruesome child abuse cases
A Child Called "It" (Dave Pelzer, #1) by Dave PelzerThis book is very likely made up from start to finish. The events in it read like Pelzer imagined the worst child abuse possible and then said, And it all happened to me! Yeah, right. His brother and grandmother said in an interview that it was all rubbish, too, which casts more doubt upon the whole thing. Pelzer also bought his own book in bulk so the sales numbers would put it on the bestseller list -- he just doesnt have a whole lot of credibility. Perhaps worse than the fact that Pelzer is, shall we say, probably somewhat fluid with the truth, is the fact that hes a dreadful writer. I no longer own the book (didnt put it through a shredder, like I did with A Million Little Pieces, but I got rid of it as quickly as I could), so I cant list any examples here, but I do recall that Ive seen better writing in sixth-grade themes.
After deleting I dont know how many comments calling me names, Im adding this note, because it will save both me and a bunch of other people from wasting time: Ill delete any comments that I consider abusive or that I think constitute ad hominem arguments, so do keep that in mind if youre thinking about composing a long screed. Thanks.
Toddler died after physical, sexual abuse in ‘horrific’ case, police say
She appeared in the Durban High Court on Thursday for sentencing. The siblings are now nine and 12 years old respectively. The case took an unexpected turn when the year-old grandmother died at the Westville Prison in April. Now left to answer for her crimes alone, the woman stood, with her freshly platted braids, cold and unresponsive as Moodley lambasted her for her lack of remorse. During the sentencing, Moodley also came down on social workers and the school the children attended for not noticing the signs of their abuse. One of the children apparently reported the abuse to the school. Thank you for assisting me to arrive at what I think is a fair and just decision.
