Clarksdale, MS

#1 Nov 18, 2012
I was shocked and horrified to hear on the news this evening that the interim chief, Scott Tarpley, had intervened in the case to overrule the medical examiner's office and have the death of this baby ruled "accidental". I may not be a genius, but a baby that has obviously been beaten to death and declared a homicide by the ME's office is NO ACCIDENT!

For every child that is born into a loving family, it seems that just as many are unwanted, unloved, and in this case, tragically discarded. Please do not let this case rest. Bring the person / people responsible for the death of this child to justice. I am counting on you to uphold justice for the "least of these". In this case, that means also punishing Scott Tarpley.

Although I no longer live in Leland, I care about what happens in that community, and I will never be able to turn a blind eye to the abuse suffered by children at the hands of adults who should trust them.
