Safe Mode: On
Dying Girl, 7, Taunted by Neighbors in Trenton

Next time I read of someone killing their wife, I'll have to wonder if she was anything like this piece of work. Oh, and that's not to excuse her ball-less wonder of a husband who can't keep her under control.

Take note in the story how the feud began. Who would want cracky at their kids party? If she's this bad, what must her kids be like?

Meet Jenni from the block:

______________________________

TRENTON, Mich. - Her family says 7-year-old Kathleen Edward is in the final stages of a degenerative brain disorder diagnosed as Huntington's Disease - the same disease which killed her mother, Laura, when she was only 24.

Neighbors Jennifer and Scott Petkov, who have been feuding with the family, admitted to posting grim depictions of Laura and Kathleen on Facebook. One photo depicts Laura in the arms of the grim reaper, while the other features Kathleen's face above a set of crossbones.

The couple also have a coffin hitched to a pick-up truck in front of the house, which they say is nothing more than a halloween decoration.

Police responded to the public feud Thursday, but no arrests were made.

The big question: why would someone do this? Police tell Ron Savage they have been called to this street before, dealing with long-standing "family-feud" issues.

A member of Kathleen's family says the bad blood started about two-years ago after the two families had a falling out over a birthday party at the Rose house. At the party kids were using a "bounce-house" and playing games in the front yard. The source says that Jennifer Petkov texted someone in the Rose family, asking if her kids could come to the event. A response to the text did not come quickly enough and it angered Jennifer. According to the Rose family, she's been harassing them ever since.

A rally for Kathleen Edward has been planned for Saturday, Oct. 23 from 3 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. at Haas Park in Trenton.

The invitation reads: "She has been tormented by sadistic neighbors. Please come and join us in showing Kathleen there are good people that care."

Pretty disgusting eh? Well, after that segment aired public outrage rose in the great tradition of a little neighborly vigilantism. Here's a contrite hubby apologizing, his banshee of a wife nowhere to be seen.

It warms my heart when people actually get off their rears to take action. If more people got called on their idiocy we'd have a lot less of it to deal with. Where do these people come from? How do they get made? How do you fall this far under societal norms and be so out of touch that you proudly parade your ignorance before the news cameras?
