Shaquanda's Father Dies

I spoke to Paris, Texas, civil rights activist, Mrs. Brenda Cherry tonight, and she informed me Shaquanda’s father died approximately a week ago in Oklahoma.
The funeral was this past Saturday.

Mrs. Creola Cotton did not tell Shaquanda of her father’s death until today. She delayed breaking the news to her until she could do it in person, rather than by phone.
According to Mrs. Cherry, Shaquanda took her father’s death quite hard.

Shaquanda has received a blizzard of cards and her family sends their thanks.

That's so sad. My heart really goes out to that young girl.

It truly is. First the loss of her freedom and the comfort of her own home and mother--now this.

My God. And the child wasn't even able to be at her own father's funeral. These bastards have some real bad karma coming to them and I hope I live to see it catch up with them.

How about this question: "Where was the father to give this girl guidance in her life, potentially saving her from the bad choices she's made?" It's horrible that he's dead now, but come on.

Of course you would be anonymous. Do you honestly think that would have anything to do with this situation? Yes, she was wrong for pushing a grown-up. But, she only deserved suspension or expulsion at the worse. She did not deserve what these uneducated, small-town rednecks did to her. They need to strung out on trees and gutted like the true pigs that they are.

Your forgetting, they offered probation, a slap on the wrist. Mom rejected it. Had I pushed a grown up at school, I couldn't have sat down for a week. Mom wants the lime light. Shame on her for sacrificing her daughter. This isn't the first time this child has been in trouble. Wonder why? My guess is mom.
