Little Shaniya Davis

Few things have caught my troubled attention like the Shaniya Davis case.  This little five-year-old’s background is pretty well known, and the fact that she was raped, strangled, and abandoned by a monster her mother had sold her to as a sex slave is well known too.  The funeral drew 2,000 or more mourners and a famous sports star paid for her funeral.

Yes, I weep and others weep for another of God’s little angels, but how long will our tears last?  And what will we do to prevent this kind of thing from happening again?  I’ve done articles of abuse of all kinds, because any abuse demeans the human spirit and human life.  I got little response.  I belong to Child Prevention Abuse organizations.  Do you?  I certainly hope so.

Shaniya’s mother is a monster who should never have become a mother.  Yet she has another seven-year-old daughter and is pregnant with a child by her present lover.  Monster or not, her life goes on.  Detectives say she sold Shaniya into sex slavery to pay off her bills.  You have only to look at the photos of the child in her last days to know she was being wretchedly treated.  Her hair is neglected, her suffering is plainly mirrored on her face.  This child was being looked after, or rather neglected, by someone from hell.
