I heard about this case not too long ago and thought one thing: what, these idiots couldn't pray and take their daughter to the hospital at the same time? Now the sickos are being charged with second-degree reckless homicide and here's hoping they're found guilty and given the full 25 years:
Family and friends had urged Dale and Leilani Neumann to get help for their daughter, but the father considered the illness "a test of faith" and the mother never considered taking the girl to the doctor because she thought her daughter was under a "spiritual attack," the criminal complaint said."It is very surprising, shocking that she wasn't allowed medical intervention," Marathon County District Attorney Jill Falstad said. "Her death could have been prevented."
Madeline Neumann died March 23 -- Easter Sunday -- at her family's rural Weston home. Her parents were told the body would be taken to Madison for an autopsy the next day.
"They responded, 'You won't need to do that. She will be alive by then,"' the medical examiner wrote in a report.
An autopsy determined that Madeline died from undiagnosed diabetic ketoacidosis, which left her with too little insulin in her body. Court records said she likely had some symptoms of the disease for months.Liberals have already attacked the Neumanns for their supposed Christian zealotry, but this isn't about faith, it's about an un-Godly cult engaging in abuse and negligence towards kids and that's why the charge makes perfect sense.
