Haiti FAIL Now #1 Story on MSNBC and Yahoo! News
When Helping HURTS gets worse.
Now MSNBC reports here that some groups are urging a complete moratorium on adoptions in Haiti. The exact opposite effect of what well-intentioned FAILed heroes from Idaho had hoped.
Here Yahoo! News also lists this FAILed expedition as their #1 story. Quoting the Prime Minister of Haiti stating that these people knew they were doing WRONG. But wait, they say they were trying 'to do the right thing.' Now a judge will have to decide.
'Trying' and 'meaning well' are not good enough. Even in their captivity, the rich Americans take from the poor and devasted.
Children will suffer more, over-taxed police are not out helping their countrymen, a devastated court system will waste time and money trying them, valuable food and medical supplies keeping the 10 fed and well get spent on people who have homes - in Idaho.
Aren't I Being a Little Harsh? Yes I am.
Why? More people will suffer because these people did not think.
The Yahoo report mentions that the 10 are being kept by police in a concrete room with no air conditioning. Good for them.
