Couple Released On Bail After Starving Daughter To Death
Cruel and senseless crimes against children committed at the hands of their parents seem to be on the rise….and these this worthless California couple just adds to the pile.

A California couple living in Qatar facing possible execution for allegedly starving their daughter to death was released on bail today after almost a year in jail.
Matt and Grace Huang were released on bail, but the court imposed a travel ban that prevents them from returning to the U.S.
The couple has been imprisoned since January after their 8-year-old adopted daughter Gloria died, they say, from unknown complications from a childhood eating disorder. But the Qatari authorities charged them with forced starvation and intent to murder. The police accuse the Huangs of trafficking Gloria and her brothers to harvest their organs.
The Huangs, who are Asian-American, accuse the Qatari authorities of faulty evidence and cultural ignorance, failing to understand how or why they would have three children from Africa.
In addition to Gloria, the Huangs have two adopted boys – one from Ghana, the other from Uganda – forming a bi-racial family rarely seen in oil-rich Qatar which is void of much diversity (except for Asian workers who go to work as laborers) and where adoptions are scarce.
If the courts think these two are enough of a threat to society to possibly recommend the death penalty, why were they even eligible for bail???
