    Unbelievable : ( What a tragic and unnecessary death.

    I suppose desperate people are taken in by 'healers'. I complained to my local authority about a 'faith healer' who was due to perform ( and it IS a performance) locally. He claimed to cure cancer, diabetes and make people walk again. I wish there were laws preventing charlatans from doing things like this.

    Poor little boy : (

    Yep, they should be held accountable for that. Disgraceful on EVERY front.

    Apologies to anyone who was offended.
    This post was not appropriate to this thread and I have self-moderated it away.

    The issue isn't so much the slapping, stupid and shocking as it is, but the fact a little boy has died.

    Not only was there this awful slapping of the little boy ( a week long too) but the child may have come off of insulin too? He may of been fasting for three days ? if so no wonder he died, poor child, I hope the person who did this to the child gets charged with manslaughter yet he was allowed to flee the country?

    This is nuts... Reminds me of some of the "exorcism" stories where an illness is deemed as demonic possession.

    Good gods ! What kind of parent could let their child be abused until he was bruised for a whole week, in the name of a " cure " ? Perhaps the same "therapy" would " cure" stupidity ?
