WTF of the Week

"...the meeting was tempered with sadness as the family learned their smiling, blue-eyed, blonde ponytailed little girl had spent most of her life as a virtual slave." [Huffington Post]

Okay, so an eleven-year-old girl is abducted, imprisoned and raped over a period of eighteen years. That is not a virtual slave. That is an actual slave.

The whole thing is terrible. I just can't believe there are people that sick in the world. I feel so bad for those children that she had.

It is hard to believe what some people are actually capable of. I've never heard of anything lasting 18 years-that is the worst yet.

I agree with you - the tone of that quote is way off. The girl was horribly abused for years and her will and identity absolutely crushed by an infinitely cruel and sociopathic monster. Understatements and euphemisms aren't going to help us here.

This animal should be tortured and raped over and over again for at least 18 years!
