She's "most likely" a crackhead. Do you know her? She's far from a "deadbeat". She took damn good care of her kids and loved them. You disgust me.
I DO know her and know first hand that she is a thief, liar, and drug addict.

Simpleton? Is that supposed to offend me? No matter how many people say they SAW a gun or they THOUGHT there was a gun, that doesn't make it real. If one is found with her prints or one shows on camera in her hand, then fine call it an armed robbery. I am not defending what she did, it IS wrong, which I made clear in my previous post. I in no way think she had a right to do what she did, and I'm not defending the crime, what I AM defending is the racial slurs made against her fiance' and the degrading comments on her motherhood. She is a good mom, a GREAT mom who made a bad decision. In an effort to provide for her children, she committed a crime in desperation. Is that too hard for you to see or is everything cut and dry with you? Have you ever loved someone to the point where you would act out in ways you never saw yourself doing? Or are you really as heartless as you come across?
They did not rob a bank to provide for their children, you and I both know that those kids had every luxury available to them. And those luxuries were not given to them by their parents. If those children ever EVER were in need of something, the McNiff and Shack family would/have provided for them. Those two robbed a bank to support their drug habit. To deny this and make excuses that they were trying to provide for their children is ludicrous. The reason they have gone so far this time in their poor decisions is because the people around them, you obviously being one, are ENABLERS.

Amy and Steve messed up and should be punished, that is for sure. Whatever the reason they should be in jail.--I love them both, my only hopeis that people will be kind to two young children who have already been told by strangers what they did. These babies are the victims here. As a community we should embrace these kids not whisper about there parents
agreed on that point :)

With my head held up high, I ask if any of your mothers ever taught you that if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all. As for all the individuals who posted hateful comments on here, may someone you love and care for be driven (whatever the reason) to desperation so you too may feel the true pain. As for me, I am a relative and will always love and care for them and their children. I pray her two beautiul children grow up not having to hear your opinions. As for me, comment what you want because I don't give a damn what you think from now on. Have an amazing day.

I just posted a comment on this that was polite and a moderator removed it. There is blatent racism on here but my post gets removed. So, I'll repost it. I say to all of you, didn't any of your mothers teach your that if you don't have anyting nice to say then don't say anything at all. As for what all of you people who posted hateful things. I hope someone close to you may be driven to desperation, no matter what the reason, so you too may feel the true pain. Being a relative to the people you are talking about I'll say that I'll always love them and their two beautiful children. I hope and pray that their children never have to hear about your hateful opinions. As for those who are going to post hateful comments against my post, I don't really care what you think but please feel free to enjoy the freedom of speech I've already been denied once. As for the moderator that removed this post before I pose this question to you, if others are allowed the freedom of speech to badmouth those I love then why am I not allowed my post?

I am a hard working hispanic Nurse, I work long hard shifts while my husband struggles every day to keep his small business going to support our family. I feel sorry for individuals who have nothing better to do with their time but to bad mouth people they don't even know. Hopefully you will never know the pain of raising a child, providing him or her with all the love and support that you can give. Teach them good values, hard work, and the importance of an education, all of this to someday have the influence of drugs take all of your hard work away. What is hurtful is that all of our struggles never paid off, were never noticed, only the bad in "drug activity" and bad choices that he made stand out. You are probably not aware that our daughter, His sister has done so well, Never in trouble, works 2 jobs, in her 3rd year of college, both of them raised the same with the same opportunities. We now have 2 beautiful innocent hispanic-Irish grandchildren to take care of, to shield from all the pain and awful comments made by ignorant people. Yes their parents were wrong in big ways, this they are paying for now. But please, dont categorize us all in your awful comments, we pay taxes, obey the law, and work hard. Judge people individually, it is the only fair way.

Maybe society is just FED THE HECK UP with turdballs robbing and steling in this area to support their freaking drug addictions. You people who live in denial that the actions of these anti-social misfits is somehow excusable is beyond comprehension. They robbed a freaking BANK to pay a DRUG DEBT!!! That is a big, fat, NO-NO!!

I agree, the racil issues are not the point, but to say a mother who has had her first child taken away, and her second one on the way that she is a "great" mother, must have very low standards. She is not a great mother, or she would have been with her very young child who is not in school and not robbing a bank. She didn't rob it for the children, she robbed it for the drugs. This in no way could be considered a GOOD MOTHER! or a good person for that matter. Supportive in Nashua, grow up and open your eyes, you are just supporting her bad decisions and bad habits.

Oh! so she takes God's will into her own hands... Sorry, I didn't realize that. If God wanted them to live, then he would keep them in the oven until they're done...
