Toy Store Shopping Spree for Kathleen Edward (http://www.myfoxdetroit.com/dpp/news/local/toy-store-shopping-spree-for-kathleen-edward - broken link)
Above is the good outcome of the story. After having death treats, house egged, husband put on suspension, and child protective services come to their home,...they then apologized. The girl has been receiving donations from around the world after the story below hit the internet.

Parents: Dying Girl Kathleen Edward Taunted By Neighbors In Trenton (http://www.myfoxdetroit.com/dpp/news/the_edge/dying-girl-taunted-by-neighbors-in-trenton - broken link)
To really get a feel for the news story, watch the video. The neighbors only apologized after they came under attack. Their behavior in the video shows how heartless and cruel they really are.

They should burn the house down of the people that did this.

Too bad the judge in her ex husband's custody application didn't see fit to review the material. This woman doesn't deserve to have children in her care imho.

Bullies ("big," although I wouldn't call them adults, and little) never change until you call them out for their behavior--they get a sick, perverse pleasure from attacking others. I'm so glad the situation has turned around, and that these people are being held accountable by the public for their actions. It needs to happen more often, and we all need to do it.

So true. When society remains silent in the face of any type of hatred and intolerance, those who would victimize others equate that silence as tacit approval and such behavior will only increase.

I'm almost choking on my words while I say this (just teasing ) but Fox did a nice job with this story.
