    I watched the video. Thanks for the link. If junk food is not food, why did Carri Williams have it in her house? Also, why is eating junk food such a crime? Doesn’t make sense to me.

      Well, as I understood it, she had the junk food for special treats but Hana was not allowed to have any because she was being punished. But I agree that it does not make sense. The idea of a child in a family stealing food from that family does not make sense and Carri’s word choices betray her adversarial mindset.

    A video newly posted on Youtube includes several minutes of Carri’s testimony. This was the first time I had seen more than a few-second sound bite, and it gives a vivid sense of her feelings about Hana and about her own responsibility toward her child. The video was made by a member of the Ethiopian community, and much of it is in Amharic, but the testimony is straight from the trial.

    I’m wondering–from people familiar with Pearl followers: is this level of self-righteousness the norm?

      Thank you for the link to this. Yes, I have noticed a tendency towards self-righteousness.
