Tough Justice

Justice would be to get her off of the substance she's on, have her life given back to her and then have her watch daily as someone who cares raises her children. She could have no contact with the children, they shouldn't know who their biological parents are. I can't believe the father did not see the signs of abuse.

She is not a mother. She is a sperm receptacle.

There is no punishment available today that would be harsh enough for this monster. Perhaps, we should break each of her bones (no anesthesia) that she broke in the baby and just let her lay there. This is a purely EVIL woman

This story brings tears to my eyes. There are so many people in this world who would love to be blessed with a child and are not. When will parents-both mothers and fathers-realize that children are blessings? A parent's role is something to take with the utmost level of seriousnes and responsibility. It kills me to see the multitude of stories similar to this one. We are in 2008 if you do not want children-there are plenty of available means to use for birth control. Be responsible enough to prevent pregnancy before it happens. My prayers are with this baby boy. May God continue to look after him. The woman who has been charged with this heinous crime is not even worthy of my time or efforts to address her. She is not worth it.

hey biker,
as its well known I firmly believe anyone who abuses a child needs to die.
its becoming common place to see these articles. i fear that the "public" will become immune to the shock of it.
JUST KILL EM ALL, thats an unforgetable message.
with all of the baby and child killings there would be alot of people going to the chair or needle. I hope there is enough to go around.

Prayers to the father and baby. Poor sweet little one.

I'll never understand how a woman could hurt something so innocent and helpless. I hope she get's what she deserves. My heart goes out this sweet innocent baby.

Wait wait wait... So far, I have read 20+ posts that all say this woman is eveil and that she deserves to die and rot in h377... What I have NOT read, however, is that this woman was found guilty of any crimes -- only charged. Last time I checked, this woman still has the right to the due process of law and a fair and speedy trial.
For the record, I agree with all of you that she should be instantly euthanized (if she is found guilty) because there's no excuse for crimes against children (I mean, this is a 24 day old who can't even hold his own head upright -- and has absolutely no means of defense).
Here are some other tidbits I'm curious about...
Baby Lanedon has 2 older brothers (Jayden and Kierdyn). Has anyone checked them for any possible abuse (past or present).
According to this article, the father admitted to actions that contributed to the abuse, and HE is being charged as well...
Why is this not being widely reported?
I guess what I'm saying is that sometimes, you have to put emotions aside and evaluate every aspect of the story... becuase there is definitely more to this story than what WLTX is reporting.
Thanks for the link to the article. It was much more informative. It sounds like the father probably admitted to using drugs or something or ignoring what the wife was doing. Who knows?

This is so disturbing. What is wrong with people?

wow... so ok i understand that having a new born child is stressful... but what the hell was she thinking? that bitch needs to never see the light of day again. how could you hurt a defenseless child. the only thing the child could ever be blamed for is being blessed with a bitch like her. how can anyone call her a mom. there are so many women out there who would love to have a child and cant, then you are blessed with one and try to kill it. do us all a favor and keep your legs closed. you dont deserve a child

i cant believe wat this mother was thinking. as a mother it hurts me to hear that another child that could have been mine was hurt and was crying out for help and there was no one to help him all i know is that god has his ways and she will get hers it may not be today but it will happened someday.

Why is that there are people that would love to have kids and cant for one reason or another but yet we have people in the world that do horrible things like this to their own kids?

There are countless people out there who would LOVE to have a child but cannot, and then we hear yet another story like this. As an adoptive mother, stories like this are heart wrenching for me. Then we find out there are TWO other children in the home...

We will begin to hear more and more stories like this, I'm afraid. They are just the precursor to Jesus' return.

someone needs to do the same thing to that piece of trash. she does not deserve a trial, a psych hearing to be deemed unfit to stand trial. take her out behind the courthouse and have someone break her skull just the way she did to her INNOCENT DEFENSELESS 24 day old infant. I hope she is tortured with what she did for the rest of her pathetic meaningless life. Piece of shit.

This woman deserves hard labor splitting granite rocks in the sun for the rest of her life. Better yet, just split her head and let her see what it feels like. She is a sad excuse for a human.

This is sad we really have evil people on this earth that would do such things this is crazy. I cant believe that a parent would do such thing babbies cry so do humans and as a mother u should no this all children have problems and hitting them doesnt solve them it may for that moment but it happens again and the more you hit your child the more u turn into this lady this killer just because you dont do this damage doesnt mean u r not like her. it doesnt mean u dont do the same thing she did to this baby hitting is a habit that is hard to break
