You're welcome Sister.  I believe Savannah was on the receiving end of long time abuse by her family and we can't bring her back, but those responsible can have consequences.

Stepmother charged in running death seeks freedom
September 21, 2012

GADSDEN, Ala. (AP) — The stepmother of a 9-year-old Alabama girl who was allegedly run to death as punishment is asking a judge to lower her bond.

Jessica Mae Hardin is due in court Friday for a hearing on a request to reduce her bond from $500,000 so she can be released.

The woman had a baby after her arrest, but Judge William Ogletree previously refused a similar motion.

Looks like she may be considering a plea deal as well. 

Sometimes it seems that children are harmed and the perpetrators get to maintain their freedom.  It's refreshing to see the two that hurt Savannah were immediately incarcerated and are still being held.

1/6/13  Bond reduced for Alabama stepmom in running death
 

"Etowah County Circuit Judge Billy Ogletree reduced the bond for Jessica Hardin from $500,000 to $150,000. The judge said the original bond was excessive and $150,000 was in line with other non-capital cases. The Gadsden Times reports  that if Hardin makes bond, she must remain at her residence unless she receives permission from a community corrections officer to leave.
 Savannah Hardin collapsed and later died after being made to run for about three hours as punishment for telling a lie. The girl's grandmother, Joyce Hardin Garrard, is accused of forcing her to run. She is charged with capital murder, and she is jailed without bond"

Thank you for the update alagary.  I wonder what kind of running punishment stepmom Jessica Hardin would be forced to run if Joyce Garrad were to mete out punishment for her like she did young Savannah?  If Savannah had to run for three hours (carrying firewood, if I recall correctly) for lying about eating a piece of candy given to her, how long should Jessica Hardin have to run?  If what's good for the goose is good for the gander, how long would Joyce Garrad herself have to run for her crime of running a child to death? 
I'm a believer of holding children responsible for their behavior and there can be consequences, but the punishment given out by Joyce Garrad doesn't fit the infraction.  It's cruel.  I was in a laundry room of an apartment complex of a friend of mine years ago and  I overheard a couple of women talking about punishment.  One of the women said she had her son on his knees for an hour (an hour!!) for something he had done.  The child had to stay on his knees and if his bottom dropped to sit, she hit him with a belt.  The child age of the child?  Four.  I never did find out what  the little boy did to deserve this. An adult would struggle with that kind of punishment.

If the same thing was done at Gitmo there would be months of protests and hearings.

Absolutely Cookie.  What is in the head of the judges -- my own answer, not much!
