I originally posted about Javon Thompson at my other site here. He was a 1-year-old from Baltimore whose remains were found stuffed in a suitcase in Philadelphia. He was starved to death by his breeder Ria Ramkissoon on the urging of a cult that she belonged to because the 3-year-old Javon did not say ‘Amen’ before meals.
You would think that the courts bring the hammer down on such an obvious case of neglect and idiocy and betrayal of basic parenting trust.
No such luck.
Baltimore Circuit Judge Timothy J. Doory sentenced Ramkissoon to probation with the caveat that she report to a residential treatment facility for young women.
The treatment program includes Bible study, and Ramkissoon will be required to complete the program, which doesn’t have a specified length, before she can live on her own.
So she’ll be out in plenty of time to be stupid enough to listen to someone else to abuse any future children she might have.
The cult leader herself, Queen Antoinette, also known as Toni Ellsberry or Toni Sloan, is looking at 60 years in Javon’s death.
It seems that the sentences should be inverse. The parent is suppo0sed to be responsible for the well being of their own children. Not sentencing Ramkissoon to jail time sends the message that you’re not responsible for your own actions.
Thanks to Marcy for the tip.
