Christmas 2020 Dear Mr Jesus

There are occasions when I simply can’t overlook a music, particularly a music with an actual message. This music will transfer anybody to tears–I assure it.

It was across the Christmas holidays in 1989, that I recorded this music off the radio. This was earlier than I found CDs. I did a whole lot of recording off the radio again then.

The music I’m referring to is entitled, Expensive Mr. Jesus. It was written by Richard Klender and sung by a 9 yr previous woman, again then, named Sharon Batts.

Earlier than I show the lyrics of this poignant music of immense emotion, I will provide you with the details concerning the music. It’s a true story about baby abuse.

In New York Metropolis, on Could 14, 1981, a child woman was born by the title of Elizabeth Lisa Launders. By November of the yr 1987, your entire world got here to know her as “Lisa Steinberg.”

On November 1, 1987, Lisa Steinberg was overwhelmed to loss of life by a New York legal professional, named, Joel Steinberg. This brutal, inhumane crime occurred at 14 West 10th Avenue, in Greenwich Village. It could later be a wake-up name to baby welfare authorities and the legislation regarding how they’d deal with such unimaginable crimes as this one.

First, he savagely beat his live-in lover, Hedda Nussbaum. Then he delivered a number of blows to Lisa’s head. Her child brother was present in a again room, laying on the ground, tied to his crib with a brief size of rope, wearing filthy clothes.

If that wasn’t unhealthy sufficient, they each waited over 12 hours to name for assist. Lisa didn’t die that day, she died three days later from extreme mind accidents.

When Hedda later discovered Lisa was not respiratory, Joel nonetheless did not need to name for assist, however finally did. Lisa was in a coma for 3 days.

This low-life, baby killer, deserves no name–only disgrace, and a ticket to hell. And his live-in lover, deserves greater than what she obtained. He obtained off simple within the eyes of the legislation. In 1989, he was convicted of first-degree manslaughter, then launched after serving solely 15 years.

Many others ought to share the duty of this crime. Baby welfare staff, cops and even a instructor who had seen the proof of abuse on Lisa’s physique, didn’t report this or do something about it. So we’ve got one other case of a kid who may have been saved if somebody had solely been keen to assist her.

Hedda Nussbaum, was abused by her boyfriend, Joel Steinberg, for years and was overwhelmed by him simply earlier than he delivered the blows that killed Lisa, due to this fact, she was not in a position to assist Lisa. She was not prosecuted since she had been discovered unable to assist Lisa and was not concerned in her abuse apart from not reporting it.

Following Lisa’s delivery, her organic mom, paid Joel Steinberg, an legal professional, $500 to search out an adoptive dwelling for her. A house was by no means discovered and though he by no means adopted Lisa, she lived with Joel for her total quick life.

Lisa’s organic mom, was awarded $15 million in damages in September 2003 from a civil lawsuit she initially filed in opposition to Steinberg, Nussbaum and varied metropolis businesses. Town of New York, settled with out admitting any wrongdoing in 1999 and paid $985,000.

For extra data on this horrendous crime, log onto Lisa Steinberg in your search. Additionally, by logging onto the title of the music, Expensive Mr. Jesus, the music is ready to be downloaded.

Lisa deserved to stay an extended and comfortable life. She additionally deserves the popularity and a spotlight of kid abuse consciousness. I’ll depart you with the lyrics of this particular music that’s positively a shifting story of Lisa’s quick lifetime of gross negligence and lethal abuse.
