*It’s as if a Black life means nothing. I wasn’t in the courtroom, so I don’t know what transpired between the judge, jury, defendant and even the court transcriber. But what I know is for some reason everybody walked out of that courtroom knowing that a wife who let her husband’s paralyzed body get consumed by maggots will go to jail…for four years.
People abusing animals have received harsher sentences.
Now yeah, I know, jail is not always the answer. And yes, there could have been extenuating circumstances.
Like maybe the wife was…is…mentally disturbed.
She’d have to be. But then again, she could just be heartless.
Reports say 37-year-old Dormanica Lawson was arrested after police were called to the house only to find her husband of 12 years, Mark Fulgham, close to death on a dirty mattress on the floor.
