4-Year Old U.S. Adoptee Killed by “Water Therapy”

[TRIGGER WARNING: child abuse, death] As his 4-year-old adopted daughter Cassandra lay dying, Richard Killpack blamed her condition on “emotional problems” and “a really bad case of RAD [Reactive Attachment Disorder]" in his 911 call.

Killpack and his wife Jenette had punished the child for sneaking sips of her sister’s drink by sitting her on a bar stool, tying her hands behind her back with the help of their biological daughter, and forcing her to drink a lethal amount of water.

EMTs found the child unconscious with distended belly and pink foam from her mouth. Medical examiners declared cause of death water intoxication, a condition in which over-abundance of water causes sodium levels in the body to drop, resulting in fatal swelling of the brain.

"I said, ‘You’ll have to go to Mom and do the drinking-water thing,’" the Killpacks’ biological daughter Heather said in a police interview. "She makes her drink ‘til she pukes."

The Killpacks insist they were using “water therapy” to cure their adopted child’s disorder, stating in TV appearances that under the rules set by attachment therapists, Cassandra had to ask for everything, including food and water, “to help her understand dependency, that her mom and dad loved her.”

I’m disgusted. And to top it off the parents’ names are “Killpack”, Jesus. 

Except you don’t get your children to you love you by having them beg for food and water.

What the fuck is wrong with these people???

ETA: The mother only served six years. The father was acquitted.  All because this four year old baby drank some of her [white] sister’s Kool-Aid.

Save your money
Instead of buying the natural hair product line for companies like motions, pantene and other corporations
Spend the extra buck and support black business
There are so many small companies out black folk making their own products
With better ingredients than the chemicals companies put in it
Really, do some good for your hair and the community
Invest in your hair and your people

Pharrell walks into the Cyrus household, where Miley leads him past an array of rooms until they reach a back chamber. In it, Kanye West and Lupe Fiasco await in ankle length, full collar leather coats. Kanye looks Pharrell in the eye, “I’d like to talk to you about the New Black Initiative.”

Pharrell looks around astounded, finally his years of self hate have paid off. “How long have you been watching me,” he asks nervously. Kanye looks Pharrell deep in the eyes, “We have always been here, since even before the “black women don’t like me because I like anime so I’m going to go to Japan, niggas. Since before Lionel Richie left his wife for that white woman. We failed with the Nelly and Tim McGraw collab, we need you P.” *Kim Kardashian emerges from the shadow carrying the Arbies hat. “This will allow me to assume control of your responses, and bring out your full New Black potential.” Pharrell takes the hat, everything goes dark, in the muffled distance he can hear Lupe Fiasco writing rhymes about child soldiers in the Congo wearing leather jogging pants. The time has come.

White people reblogged this and now it’s not funny anymore.

keep in mind many men don’t really like women, they like the high regard afforded them by other men when seen with a certain kind of woman. they like the confirmations of their masculinity and sexual prowess when engaging physically with a woman, and they like the ego boost of being attractive to many women. but they do. not. like. women.
