Now, if this happened in Brooklyn Park and Ms. Kasten's name was Keisha Jackson, most posters would probably describe her as...?

Just think how much money the courts, attorneys, social workers, and psychobabble people can make by keeping this woman on the streets. If she was locked up only a few would be able to profit from her lifestyle. PROFITS, PROFITS, PROFITS!!!!

People don't be so hard; she obviously has a "disease"...show some compassion! Why are we sentencing her to time, when we can spend more money on her and send her to treatment? I believe it takes up to 10 stays in treatment to kick methÂ…

The judge showed a disgusting lack of morality in his/her sentencing for the baby's death. It's a little premature though to draw the 'gender pass' conclusion. Do we know the gender of the judge? Do we know the judge's record of sentencing so we can make an informed decision? Not really.

We are all in agreement, though, about this mother's actions being criminally wrong and the judge's sentencing to be ethically questionable at best. If there's a cause for investigating the judge's pattern of sentencing, this would be it.

Well she is finally going away and thats a good thing. I still can't figure out the the high on meth and asleep, unless she was at the end of meth binge and crashing.

Does anyone else see a similarity in what is happening here, and everywhere else?? It is so frustrating, seeing the proliferation of young kids having babies, and the drug use. It used to be that there were just young kids having babies. Now we're throwing drugs into the mix, and we wonder why all these babies are dying. I don't know, it's just frustrating, seeing the kids having the babies, and then they are screwing up, time and again, not showing really any remorse to anything that happens until there is a death. Then all of a sudden, they are the most distraught parents on the block, and everything that happened in the past was all a big mistake, and they are perfect parents.

Frankly, it just p*sses me off!!

I still don't get meth addicts. I would think if people saw pictures of what people on meth look like after about 6 months of use, nobody would use it. It ruins whole communities, not just families.

It just goes to show that too many judges refuse to enforce the drunk driving laws we have and give free passes to these people. Thank goodness the appeals process works, no thanks to the first judge. He's probably a drinker, too, and thinks it's no big deal.
