NC-Shaniya Davis, 5, Allegedly sold by mother 11/10/09 #28
I've read every post/thread regarding Shaniyas case. I do remember discussion regarding growth in NC and some of the members commenting on NC not wanting Shaniya's story shedding a bad light on the state. IIRC those were opnions not backed up by facts/links.
My computer is down right now and it's really hard to search on my phone, but as soon as I am able to, I'll try to dig up info and try to seperate opinion vs fact regarding this issue.
IMO this case was never hushed or swept under the rug. It was one of the biggest news stories of 2009. Court procedings were aired live on WRAL.COM and the story was ran for months on the national networks. That being said, I don't know how anyone can say it was hushed as to not bring negative attention to the state.
