Your tax dollars at work:
People across China have expressed outrage over the death of a three-year-old girl who was starved to death after police arrested her mother and left her locked at home with no food for 18 days, the country’s state press reported on Thursday.
Read it for yourself, and don’t miss the last paragraph. And to those of you who joyously point to the fact that the state news reported this, read about how they first blamed the mother’s “negligence.”
