Quote# 61065

(CNN) -- A Maryland woman involved with a group described as a religious cult pleaded guilty in the starvation death of her son, but insisted that the charges be dropped when he is resurrected.

The condition was made a part of Ria Ramkissoon's plea agreement, officials said. She entered the plea Monday in Baltimore, Maryland, to a first-degree felony count of child abuse resulting in death, her attorney, Steven Silverman, said Tuesday.

Ramkissoon, a member of a group called One Mind Ministries, believes Javon Thompson, her year-old son, will rise again, and as part of her plea agreement, authorities agreed to the clause.

People ask what difference it makes whether people believe weird things. This is what difference it makes.

I don't think it's fundie.
Sad none the less.

She's gone way beyond fundie.

I rather doubt it took the prosecution team very long to agree to the "ressurection" clause.

#932531, are you kidding? A child was starved to death on orders of a cult leader for not saying "amen" after meals. How in the name of all that is secular is that not fundy?

Personally, I think the prosecutor should seek the death penalty. They can always promise to undo it should her son live again.

Seems only fair.

Good grief.

I think that's fair. Once she proves her son has been resurrected, we can drop the charges. (Hint: The key word is "proves.")

"pleaded guilty in the starvation death of her son, but insisted that the charges be dropped when he is resurrected. "

I'm going to hell for laughing at that.

Well, if she's this impossibly stupid, do we really need more of her relatives running around anyway?

I don't want to make a mockery out of a child's murder, but I also have to wonder how long the judge and prosecutor were laughing about that clause afterward.

4/1/2009 10:19:05 AM



Disgusting.

I do love how they agreed to drop the charges when he comes back to life.

*headpat* Of course, dear. Whatever you like.

Authorities handled the situation well.

I wonder why her lawyer didn't try to have her plead not guilty on account of insanity.

4/1/2009 10:51:42 AM

Mister Spak

But what if the rapture happens first?

Dayglow, good question, my guess is because he couldnt stop laughing.

"I think that's fair. Once she proves her son has been resurrected, we can drop the charges."

Yes, and she can't claim that her son has been reincarnated in the form of some other child. (Probably too Buddhist for her tastes, anyway."

4/1/2009 11:09:39 AM



No no no, they're should be no agreement. She should be told outright that she is a lunatic and that her son is never coming back.

That poor child. :( I hope they all rot in hell. At a year old most kids just babble!

I'm still pissed she got a suspended sentence.

4/1/2009 12:06:14 PM

Mister Spak

One of the conditions of parole is that she get anti-fundie treatment
