has anyone seen this on facebook?... its about a baby named alissa who was beaten to death by her aunt. her father had died and her mother was having a hard time so she gave temp. custody to her sister until she could get her stuff together. well her sister beat alissa for months and the mom didnt know. one day she was beaten to death... then her aunt took her body put her in the car seat and took her kids (she never beat her own) and went and bought mcdonalds for the living kids. and then took alissa home threw her on the couch and called her brother (a fireman or paramedic cant remember) and told him that there was somthing wrong with alissa.. her brother walked in and immediatly called 911 alissa had died 8 hours earlier. ... the aunt only got 77 days in jail and some house arrest/probation and STILL has her KIDS...

:( :( and such an incredibly precious little girl too:( Why do this to her? I'll never understand this kind of hatred and evil behavior. The 77 days in jail is beyond ridiculous.

and the fact that she still has children living in her home blows my mind. ... too sad.

I believe it's quite typical for abusers, especially those who physically abuse children, to hurt one child in particular. I've read/known of my fair share of child abuse cases ( I'm a social worker), and it's often the case that one child is singled out. We've had a number of cases in the last few years in our city, where I recall there being one child that dies or is terribly abused. Then you find out there were other children in the home who were perfectly cared for and often aware of the abuse. It's sad for the child being hurt, and the children exposed to this. I think in some cases, it's a matter of survival- be a good child and stay in abuser's good graces to avoid being hurt. Regardless, it's sick that someone can hurt one child and still be a great parent to other children, all in one breath. It's just mind boggling.
