Florida couple guilty in death of 2-yr-old by python

In 2009 in central Florida, a pet python – that had not been fed for an entire month – wrapped itself around the head of a 2-year-old toddler and crushed her to death. The baby (Shaianna) was resting in her crib in a bedroom that did not have a door.
During the trial a medical examiner testified that “there were also several clusters of puncture wounds … that represent bites from the snake as the snake was (basically) trying to ingest her…”
The couple charged with manslaughter, third-degree murder and child neglect – mother Jaren Hare (21) and her live-in boyfriend, Charles “Jason” Darnell (34) – were found guilty today. Darnell could end up serving more time than Hare due to 6 prior felony convictions. He is not the biological father of the girl.
No details are readily availble about the relationship between the biological parents – was there one at all? when did it end? – but the good news is that Shaianna was being raised by one PENIS and one VAGINA which is what gawd demands -thus it is the way Floridians feel is superior.
Until 2008 the state of Florida had a ban on gay adoptions in place. In the defense of the ban, the state attorney general, Bill McCollum, hired an expert witness named George Rekers to testify. Rekers testified that gay people are “…incapable of providing a safe and stable home to adopted children”
Rekers was a founding member of NARTH (National Assn of Research and Therapy for Homosexuality) a supremacist organization that provides torture (aka reparative therapy) to people that are struggling with sexual identity issues.
This is the same kind of snake oil hogwash sold by people like presidential candidate Michelle Bachmann and her husband Marcus.
Shaianna might have been separated from her biological father, raised by her mother and her felon boyfriend, and killed by a wild animal in her bed – but at least she didn’t have to face being raised by an unsafe homosexual couple in an unstable home.
