When I first glanced at the article I thought this was going to be another story about adoptive Breeders who were in it for the money. In a sick way that makes sense. Greed is a huge motivator for all sorts of criminal acts. Then I read the article and it turns out the Breeders in question are just evil.
In Denver police have arrested 35-year-old Regina Marquez and her 36-year-old girlfriend Deanna Martinez for severely physically abusing a 6-year-old girl who Marquez had adopted.
Marquez is the girl’s biological aunt who adopted the girl when the bio mom could no longer care for her. That is supposed to be an act of love when you adopt a relative’s child when they can’t care for them. Instead this became just another act of torture.
The girl was allegedly made to only eat in the bathroom and was not fed all that often. The girl’s hair was falling out and she had the development of a 2-year-old girl. The girl was also found to have several fractures that were in a state of healing in her arm and fingers. Marquez claimed the girl’s arm broke when she ‘fell’ while carrying a box of Legos.
To make matters worse Marquez also adopted the girl’s 2-year-old brother but I have not seen any claims of abuse on him. Was the girl singled out for some reason? Because the fact that they targeted the girl makes it seem so.
You know, there is an adult version of Legos. They’re called cinder blocks. One of the favorite implements of justice at the (P)BB Department of Poetic Justice. Which brings me to what ‘they’ should do.
Have their arms tied down and extended on a slab of concrete then repeatedly drop cinder blocks painted to look like Legos dropped on their arms. Of course this would be after they were starved for a while.
Nice neck tattoo by the way. Seriously classy.
Thanks to Twila for the tip.
