Because the woman who accused her of it obviously did not knw her. She is a Very Godly woman and would never hurt a child. Something about the story is fishy & the truth WILL come out. I am very upset about this she does not deserve to be in jail.

It said she tried to give the children coloring books and then she grabed a 3 yr old and tried taken the child to her car. So why would she have picked the child up and try to place he/she in her car? And the mother had to fight her to get the child back. Neighbors is who called it in. So where do you see she was not trying to kidnap the child?

I know this lady very well, and she is a very christian lady, and i do know se is a patient of pathways so either she got off her medications or the medicaion stop working. don't be so quick to judge because this illiness she has, could very well happen to you tomorrow or even today. so be thankfull it's not you instead of being so judgemental. i have seen strange things like this happen to her over the years. to love her, you would have to know her. She's a very sweet person. and there is no doubt in my military mind that the courts will see this and find her not GUILTY by reasons of insanity at the time that this took place

Sounds like you have a mental disorder, you silly, ignorant S.O.B. glad you are blessed so that your mind is functioning right at all time, that was so uncalled for you stupid BASTARD. The lady was unaware of what she were doing. I see you are a lost cause but i do hope and pray that no one in your immediate family gets the same disorder. in fact i think world would have been better off if you had died when you were a baby. YOU ARE PROBABLY A FAGGOT YOUR SELF mr. GUEST

There isn't a single thing in this world you can say to me that could hurt my feelings enough to say its okay to let someone with a mental disorder and who is clearly a threat to herself and society kidnap my child. Who in their right mind would dismiss that? Should we dismiss serial killers and pedophiles and pyromaniacs and rapists and say "awe that's okay buddy, you have issues." So call your names and jump up and down with clenched fists and throw a temper tantrum. I don't care. There's no excuse for a person to put their hands on someone else's child. Period. For the person who said they would be met with a bullet for trying to snatch their kid, hell yeah, I second that.

You and this kidnapper must have had plans for that three yr old. What was it? You clearly sound as off as the kidnapper. Was she to bring the child to you or something? You act like this was no big deal. Well she should feel very lucky cuz had that been mine she would have been leaving in an ambulance instead of the cop car. Sry but im not gonna pat her on the back and say thats okay! I hope she gets time out of it.

You "hope & pray"? Really? Words you used: faggot, bastard, s.o.b., and said better off dead as a baby. You're about as much a Christian as the woman snatching babies and claiming insanity rather than depravity. I agree with black ice saying you're probably an accomplice to this attempted abduction, and you're just trying to take the heat off so no one gets in too much trouble and then you will be back at it again. We got you figured out sicko.

She is a sweet lady who would give her last to someone in need & i got her back 1,000 %.

I really don't see the state gazette lying about what took place. If she was not trying to take the child, then why was the mother fighting to get the child back? I truly believe you both had plans for that baby. And ur really sick in the head to defend a kidnapper. You are just as guilty as the old lady. Someone should find out who you are and take you in for questning..

Obviously...by my screen name...im her kinfolk.duh. && since we are saying what we "think" we know, how bout this, i "think" you are putting ur opinion on something u know nothing about to get in on the drama... just stating what i "think". FYI she has a witness who saw everything. She was going back to her car & the kids followed for the colors & coloring books. she gave the boy a hug and the children's mother freaked out and called the police (understandable) but she had no bad intentions she was only being nice and it scared the mother because she did not know her. i am not taking up for a KIDNAPPER i am taking up for my FAMILY because i KNOW her and she is a very kind hearted person...thats not what i "think" or read..thats what i KNOW ;) good day.
