New Zealand: Nia Glassie, toddler murdered following heinous abuse
I was going through visitors just a few minutes ago as I was checking the "referrals" in Sitemeter. I came to a heart-breaking story about a toddler, three-year old Nia Glassie. H/T to my friend KG at Crusader Rabbit, words fail... Nia Glassie: a three year old toddler responsible for her own beating? After heinous abuse, Nia Glassie died August 3, 2007 in New Zealand. This defenseless toddler was abused relentlessly by her mother, her mother's "companion", and a cousin. Additional links: Nia made to stand in rain, jurors told; NZ toddler run through dryer; and New Zealand toddler put in dryer before death. KG is right. Words fail... Just as they fail in the rapes, torture, and murders of Channon Christian and Christian Newsom. What we have is "political correctness" gone MAD, as in "insane", that our societies have slipped so far that citizens are nearly inured to such unthinkable and heinous crimes. We had a similar case in Florida recently when an 11-13 year old boy killed a young girl using wrestling techniques. He was tried as an adult but never did the defense try to blame the murdered girl as is happening at the Rotorua High Court. How low can a defense attorney go? But anyway we look at it, words do fail... as we failed Nia Glassie.
