Yet more vegans convicted of starving a child
Coming on the heels a few weeks ago of an Arizona vegan woman being convicted of nearly starving her three year old daughter to death, two more vegan parents have been convicted of starving a child in Atlanta. This time however, the result was much more tragic as the 6 week old baby, who weighed only 3 and a half pounds, did not survive. The couple was convicted of murdering the child and will receive mandatory life sentences. If anyone has an explanation as to why lunatics such as these become so obsessed with their own dietary dogma that they are willing to endanger the lives of their own children, I'm all ears. That one could engage in behavior this reckless and irresponsible, though those terms don't really do it justice, against one's own child is quite mind boggling to me. Here's to hoping these two sit and rot for a long, long time.
