Relatives recall Gizzell Kiara Ford as a smart, mature and respectful 8-year-old girl.

Prosecutors said today her grandmother, Helen M. Ford, 51, of the 5200 block of West Adams Street, inflicted so many injuries on the girl over a long enough period and neglected her so badly that before she died Friday, Gizzell had maggots living in a head injury that had spread to another part of her scalp.

Heartbreaking.

This was a REAL CHILD, not a nearly-grown teenager with the strength of a man, and she was REALLY MURDERED.

She looks so sad and remorseful in this picture, that is to say I’m sure she is sad and sorry that she got caught!

It’s bad enough the black on black murder but a grandmother killing her granddaughter? What a skank!

There is no money to be made from it. Hence, the race pimps and “civil rights activists” are not interested. This is only a human being that had her life painfully taken from her.

The poor little girl--a real "innocent child", not a trumped up one like TM.

Soc. Svc. were likely doing the same things the IRS, VA, MEDICARE, etc. govt. workers are doing--coming in a little late, immediately taking a coffee break, shuffling a few papers, looking at internet for an hr, taking a smoke break, looking at computer screen 30 minutes, taking a hr. and 15 min. lunch break instead of 45 minutes, another 15 minute smoke break, fiddling with papers 45 min., take a coffee break, shuffle papers till quitting time--leave 15 minutes early to avoid traffic.

I speak as a former federal, state, county, city worker. Happened everywhere. 5 to 10% worked, other 90% showed.

Several people have asked how, as a retired state employee, I am conservative and vote Republican.

My answer-learned to hate the bureaucracy from inside.

Waiting now for upgrade to husband's vet disability he applied for last Sept--needed upgrade to get him into VA nursing home. He died in April-multiple diseases from nuclear and agent-orange exposure; I took over the claim and still pending in spite of a court order ordering VA to get rid of the back log.Tthey are waiting for me to die, too, so they won't have to pay me a few dollars.

Mainstream media isn't interested in black upon black crime, nor are celebrities who base every thought out of their heads on racism (as long as it is anti-white or anti-hispanic). Violent crimes committed upon white people by blacks are rarely if ever given a fraction of the attention of the Martin-Zimmerman case.

Because Obama and Holder hold whites accountable for every grievance they have since the country was founded, it is perpetuated and elevated to a status that is in complete and utter opposition to "every man is created equal" status. Under Obama race relations have disintegrated at a record pace with the ever eager assistance of the usual media and so-called celebrity enablers.

I fear someone in that corrupt courthouse or corrupt media will leak the names of jurors.

The narrative is that this woman’s behavior is complex and the product of an unfair system. Before we judge we should walk in her shoes... Or so I’ve been told.

Doesn’t matter. What does Obama think?

Another black child being “raised” by her grandmother, because her mother was... well... gee, where was she? Hard to tell from the article. Of course we’re all so used to the narrative by now, what’s it matter?

May this little girl have eternal rest.
