Parents Gone Wild! Brittany Cherokee Dawn Bell charged with child neglect for the death of her 5-month-old daughter, Alice

Look at that sweet little face. I cannot fathom how a parent can harm or allow harm happen to their children. Brittany Cherokee Dawn Bell is charged with child neglect, not murder, because the medical examiner was unable to determine exactly how the baby died. This is not rare. It does happen. I do hope that there is real justice in this case. This ‘mother’ did not even appear remorseful for her baby dying. From all that I read, she is a real poor example of a mother. Apparently she is a heavy drug user, which would cloud any judgment she may have had, if any. And she actually tried to blame this on her 18-month-old twins. Her other children have been taken away, thankfully.
