Where's the Outrage?
Marches? Protests? Maybe a speech or two? Hello?
Relatives recall Gizzell Kiara Ford as a smart, mature and respectful 8-year-old girl.
Prosecutors said today her grandmother, Helen M. Ford, 51, of the 5200 block of West Adams Street, inflicted so many injuries on the girl over a long enough period and neglected her so badly that before she died Friday, Gizzell had maggots living in a head injury that had spread to another part of her scalp.
Ford cried today as prosecutors detailed the girl's injuries to Criminal Court Judge Adam Bourgeois Jr. and the judge set no bail for the murder charge against the woman.
Meanwhile, her other family members are struggling with anger, pain and disbelief, said Gizzell's uncle, Osvaldo J. Mercado of Schiller Park.
"Everybody is in shock," said Mercado, 30.
You're shocked? We're appalled, and that's a pretty rare emotion for us considering our job. But once again, the silence speaks volumes. And the message isn't one that the community is willing to face up to. Thank goodness Sharpton will be here soon.
