Sick, Ill, Turning Stomach. Reaves Family, Meet Chante Mallard

Meet Rodney Michael Reaves and Charlott Lynett Reaves. I'd introduce you to Rodney's daughter, Joella, but I can't, you see. She's dead.

The girl was 11. According to this article in CNN (that I found via Boots and Sabers - Owen posted it yesterday), the father and stepmother were "punishing" the child for trying to leave the home.
    The girl, Joella Reaves, was beaten over her entire body with an umbrella and paddle for several days, according to the arrest warrant. Her cause of death was listed as blunt force trauma.

    "When she attempted to escape, she was hogtied. She was left with no food or water or sanitary or sleeping necessities," the warrant said.

    Joella was being punished by her parents, according to the warrant. Police, attorneys and child welfare officials would not say what she had done to anger her parents.
Maybe she didn't do anything at all. What I do know, is there is nothing so terrible she could have done to warrant a fraction of this treatment. When I introduce the Reaves adults to Chante Mallard, I mean to say that they're going to meet in the 7th circle of hell, round 1. All boiling in blood together.

Good riddance, and may guilt rot any remnant of your soul.

People should have to have a license to have kids.

Don't miss this song about Chante (hometown girl for me).

I think I have the MP3 at home, if you are interested.
