People who read this blog know the horror and rage we feel at people who abuse their children. The stories never seem to end from year to year. However the case of Bruce Jackson is an odd story where the children did not die barely.
Bruce Jackson was part of a large family in NJ. The family had biological kids and adopted kids. For reasons known only to the demented parents the biological kids were fed and the adopted sisters were treated well. The four brothers were fed a diet of dried grits and pancake mix. They were not even allowed to sit at the dinner table.
It is not as if there were not enough food to go around. Bruce Jacksons mother was very heavy and his sisters were plus size . The dynamics of this bizzzare Jackson family is strange as none of the siblings aided the starving brothers.
The story angers me because most people will even aid starving strangers. There have been times where a friend is too proud to take money so I went to Price Chopper and bought buy one get one free items. I really don't need this Kielbassa but it was buy one get one free. This subtle helping hand helped a few friends in town. I arranged easy jobs such as here is $100.00 pick up two tickets at the Flynn and gas up your car on me. My friend was going crazy from the boredom of unemployment and had eaten very little.
Vanessa Jackson was sentenced to a mere seven years for starving her four sons. No doubt with good behaviorshe will be out in two years. No doubt she will be a model prisoner and all of us will forget this story until the next case comes along.
In the modern age starvation of people as social policy is only carried out in Communist regimes. People who are starving are much more docile. Death is just another form of liberation. Starving people for their own good only makes sense to demented Communists and evil people like Vanessa Jackson
