    PHILADELPHIA — Four social workers were among nine people charged Thursday in the death of a disabled 14-year-old girl who authorities say wasted away from neglect before dying at 42 pounds.

    Danieal Kelly's mother was charged with murder; counts against other defendants range from involuntary manslaughter to perjury. District Attorney Lynne Abraham said any of the nine could have foreseen the horrific fate of Danieal, whose emaciated body was found in her mother's squalid house covered with bone-deep, maggot-infested bedsores in August 2006.

    I am seriously choked up after looking at the one autopsy photo...her hair clips still in her hair...that's the only thing I can describe. The rest is just too awful.

    Carmen Paris, the acting health commissioner at the time of Danieal's death, submitted her resignation today after being suspended with intent to dismiss yesterday.

    That read is so sad. What that little girl went through is horrifying. The grandmother should have done something herself, she knew something was wrong and only spoke to the mom? Is that my understanding? Why didn't she seek attention for the child? Why didn't she call someone?

    As if you couldn't guess, I read the grand jury report and am just appalled. I've been reading some of the news coverage from right after Danieal died. From a 2006 Philadelphia Inquirer article:

    And a statement by an attorney for the contractor:

    Big wake-up call for some folks, sounds like. Way to go, grand jury.

    That was one hell of a read. I can't even begin to express my anger and rage at how the system failed her.

    i hope the fuck ALL 9 of them suffer the same fate they caused this precious little girl to suffer..
    FUCKING welfare breeder bitches.. If you CAN'T feed them on your OWN MONEY, STOP fucking BREEDING them. Welfare is for folks who *can't* work.. not for lazy crotchrotted bitches that keep poppin' out kids to keep collecting the fucking welfare check.
    Here's a thought.. maybe we ought to put you into a dark fucking closet somewhere with no air or light and forget to feed you for a few yrs. STUPID CUNT.
    So.. now since all 9 are indicted, chances are they're ALL going to do time.. Guess who foots the fucking bill while they're incarcerated..

    GODS this makes me ill.

    Stories like this are what give me the inspiration to work harder in school...
    The fucking assholes that were too LAZY to do their JOBS .. I think a fitting and suitable punishment would be to strap them to beds and leave them there until they suffer the same horrible end as that precious little girl.. And that might even be just too good for them.

    I think that autopsy photo is the MOST disturbing thing I have ever seen.
    Ever. This angers me so much, I don't even know what to say.

    WTF!!

    "Boo-hoo-hoo, you didn't prevent us from killing our daughter"...

    Useless M*F*ers, you kill your child and have the audacity to file a law suit.
    If that 19 could have mental trauma then the son of a bitch should have done something for the sister.
