4-Year Old U.S. Adoptee Killed by “Water Therapy”
[TRIGGER WARNING: child abuse, death] As his 4-year-old adopted daughter Cassandra lay dying, Richard Killpack blamed her condition on “emotional problems” and “a really bad case of RAD [Reactive Attachment Disorder]" in his 911 call.
Killpack and his wife Jenette had punished the child for sneaking sips of her sister’s drink by sitting her on a bar stool, tying her hands behind her back with the help of their biological daughter, and forcing her to drink a lethal amount of water.
EMTs found the child unconscious with distended belly and pink foam from her mouth. Medical examiners declared cause of death water intoxication, a condition in which over-abundance of water causes sodium levels in the body to drop, resulting in fatal swelling of the brain.
"I said, ‘You’ll have to go to Mom and do the drinking-water thing,’" the Killpacks’ biological daughter Heather said in a police interview. "She makes her drink ‘til she pukes."
The Killpacks insist they were using “water therapy” to cure their adopted child’s disorder, stating in TV appearances that under the rules set by attachment therapists, Cassandra had to ask for everything, including food and water, “to help her understand dependency, that her mom and dad loved her.”
I’m disgusted. And to top it off the parents’ names are “Killpack”, Jesus.
Except you don’t get your children to you love you by having them beg for food and water.
What the fuck is wrong with these people???
ETA: The mother only served six years. The father was acquitted. All because this four year old baby drank some of her [white] sister’s Kool-Aid.
the amount of incidents of horrific violence to adopted children of color…

The long history of White American domination of Black Americans - which has been enforced and reinforced by the use of physical force and violence, psychic violence and coercive power - has in effect convinced the majority of Blacks that Whites are invincible. Moreover, this history has undermined the self-confidence of most Blacks, narrowed their vision of their possibilities and power, restricted their aspirations to the narrow confines of racial accomodation and assimilation, to being the paternalistic recipients of White sympathy rather than expanding their aspirations to include the overcoming of White power and achieving full, unfettered self-liberation. The unending maintenance of this self-defeating state of mind in Blacks is the fundamental objective of White power and the keystone upon which the infrastructure facade of White power rests.
We are not arguing here that White power is purely delusional or does not contain truly lethal actualities. However, we are arguing that if Black Americans and Afrikans the world-over do not permit themselves to be “psyched out” by White racist propaganda; if they both recognize and actualize their potential to neutralize White power in either its imagined or actual forms, they can be these means neutralize it.❞
Dr. Amos Wilson on recognizing that White power can be smashed, it is not invincible, and that we can win. It is the White racists who are doing all they can to discourage us because the sooner we get our feet on the ground, the sooner they’re done.
