Lessons In Fatherhood
A judge Friday told William Allen Cunningham he was not eligible for bond on federal charges of poisoning his children's soup in a scheme to sue the Campbell Soup Co.
Cunningham was indicted on tampering and fraud charges in federal court, but also faces five counts of child cruelty in Clayton County, where his 3-year-old son and 18-month-old daughter were hospitalized after Cunningham allegedly fed them tainted soup. On one occasion, he allegedly used the prescription drugs Prozac and Amitriptyline - both used to treat depression - to poison the children.
Some pathetic liberal defense attorney will argue for Cunningham's release, saying the guy was down on his luck -- unemployed, soon to be divorced, living in a van (all true) -- and should not be held responsible.
What this attorney will not say is that Cunningham is responsible for his own good character, and he is guilty of living utterly without one, which should be severely punished.
As if that's not enough, here's another one, from Newsday:
A Brentwood man [Julio Rivera, 26] with a long history of violence, drug addiction and Satanic worship was charged Friday with killing his 5-month-old son, an infant he often subdued by blowing marijuana laced with PCP into his mouth, authorities said.Gee, do ya think drugs just might make you a little crazy? Of course! And that's exactly what this loser's attorney will try to stick it to the jury with.
