    Default dying 7 year old Detroit area girl taunted by neighbor

    WTF is the matter with people....I don't care what your beef is, and this one seems to settle around the neighbors kids not getting invited to a party

    but under what circumstances is this behaviour anything more than a ticket to the express train to hell?


    Dying girl’s family gets support after alleged Facebook taunts
    George Hunter and Doug Guthrie / The Detroit News

    Trenton — Friends and family of a terminally ill 7-year-old girl who allegedly was tormented by a neighbor say they have received an outpouring of support from across the world.
    Kathleen Edward, who is the final stages of Huntington's disease, has allegedly been the target of taunts by a woman who lives across the street. The woman, Jennifer Petkov, told Fox 2 Detroit that she posted pictures on Facebook depicting the little girl's face above a set of crossbones. The page has since been removed.


    Another Facebook photo shows Kathleen's mother, Laura, who died last year of Huntington's disease at age 24, in the arms of the grim reaper.
    "We're aware of the situation and are looking into it," said Trenton Deputy Police Chief James Nardone. "This has been ongoing for quite some time."
    Efforts to reach Petkov by phone and in person this afternoon were unsuccessful.
    Michelle Yerigian, 42, a longtime friend of the family, said she alerted the media about Petkov's alleged taunts.
    "I don't understand how people could spew such hatred," Yerigian said. "They had a truck with a coffin on it; the police came by and finally had them take the coffin off. (Petkov) would pull up in the truck, rev up the engine, and say to Kathleen, 'I can't wait until you die.' When I saw what she posted on Facebook, I almost threw up. I'm totally dumbfounded."
    Yerigian, whose 18-year-old daughter was killed in a car accident two years ago, said her 10-year-old son saw the coffin on the truck and was confused.
    "He looked at that truck, shook his head, and said, 'I don't understand it.' He won't get that image out of his head. It broke my heart. I told him, 'You just have to pray for some people.'"Since the story aired on Fox 2 Detroit, at least three Facebook pages supporting the little girl have been started. Yerigian said she and Kathleen's family have since been contacted by dozens of people.
    "We've heard from people from the U.K., Germany, Minnesota — it's incredible," she said.
    Yerigian has organized a rally to support Kathleen from 3-8:30 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 23.
    "This isn't about trying to get revenge," Yerigian said. "We're telling people not to do anything stupid."

    She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.

    Sometimes I think there is no hope for humanity. How do people in the year 2010 behave this way?

    Michigan Woman Apologizes for Taunting Dying Girl
    News by Mark Berman Opposing Views
    (6 Hours Ago) in Health / Conditions

    A Michigan woman, who posted pictures online that taunt a dying girl, has apologized for her actions. It's the ugly culmination of a feud that started with a birthday party snub.

    Seven-year-old Kathleen Edward is in the final stages of Huntington's disease -- the same disease that killed her mother last year at age 24. A neighbor named Jennifer Petkov marked that death, as well as Kathleen's impending and tragic demise, by posting nasty photos on her Facebook page.

    It seems Petkov was angry that her children were not invited to Kathleen's birthday party two years ago. So she tried to invite herself, according to Kathleen's new stepmother, 19-year-old Gabrielle Edward.
    “Kathleen’s grandmother had a birthday party, and Jennifer sent a message asking if her kids could come over to play,” Gabrielle Edward said. “(Kathleen’s grandmother) apparently didn’t respond quickly enough; that’s where it all started.”

    After Kathleen's mother died last year, Petkov drove their pickup truck -- which had the message "Death Machine" and had a coffin attached to it -- up and down the street, honking the horn.

    That was bad enough, but now Kathleen's father, 26-year-old Robert Edward, said he has had enough.

    “Just leave us alone; that’s all we want. Don’t make any more comments about our daughter.” He added, “You have to understand how angry we are. The police told us they were shocked that we haven’t gone over there and beat the hell out of her. But there’s more important things to deal with, like our daughter. She’s hanging in there. We have hospice at our home every week, and that’s a lot to deal with on its own.”

    Even Petkov has apparently realized her actions are reprehensible, apologizing to the family.
    “What I did was ignorant and wrong and I would walk right across this street now and apologize, if it weren’t for the PPO (personal protection order issued against her earlier by a court),” Petkov said. “I’m not proud of myself because this went from a neighborhood dispute to a huge thing.”

    Petkov's husband Scott said that his wife’s “brutal honesty” has caused his family to “not get along with a lot of people.” It also could cost him his job -- Scott Petkov was suspended with pay from his job as a forklift repairman over all of this, and could be fired.

    "My husband is a good person and I hope he doesn’t lose his job. I hope our family doesn’t lose his job. I’m the bad person,” Jennifer Petkov said Friday. “I feel horrible for what I’ve said and done. That little girl shouldn’t have had to lose her mom like that and she shouldn’t have to lose her life either. I just hope she didn’t see those pictures.”

    Police are looking into the incident to see if any laws were broken and if an arrest is warranted.
    I swear, it's like I'm playin' cards with my brother's kids or somethin'. You nerve-wrackin' sons-a-bitches.

    Can we just fire bomb Detroit? Seriously.

    If the Red Wings win the cup again, don't try to stop the riots. Just let them burn the city down.

    Sad...so sad.

    These kind of stories keep coming, eating away at my faith in humanity.

    It seems to me that Petkov is only apologizing after the realization her husband could lose his job. While she represents the despicable side of humanity, I feel she isn't worthy of our attention. I'm sure she'll get what's coming to her.

    I'm impressed with Robert Edward, the father, for showing incredible restraint in not retaliating in some way. It makes me want to drive there and beat the shit out of this scum for him.

    My thoughts and prayers go out to Kathleen and her family.

    As he said, dealing with a dying child after losing her mother has put enough on his plate that he doesn't have the time or the energy. I agree, it would seem she is only doing this to save her husband's job. Let's hope it works because I really don't want some piece of trash like this being supported by taxes dollars if he does lose his job. There is so much outrage, I wouldn't be surprised if something awful doesn't happen to them.
    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly.
