Father Slit Ja'Shawn Powell's Throat

My stomach's turning. Just learned that Danny Platt, the man who killed his 2-year-old son, Ja'Shawn Powell, Friday night in New Orleans because he didn't want to pay child support slashed the child's throat. The coroner's office bided its time before releasing this horror of information. Here's a link to the previous posts about Ja'Shawn.

At the Twittermoms African-American Moms group, I asked how can we prevent these tragedies or can we prevent them at all. It's a small group, and so I'm not surprised no one's answered that question there yet. However, who could answer it, ever, other than God?

Danny Platt should never see the light of day again.
