Ok Placitas, looks like YOU need to get your facts straight. I did not drop my daughter off in a pig pen of a house and I DID NOT need to be slapped in the face to be told the horrible news I was. I was coheriant AND NOT TO BLAME!!!!!!It is your "well raised" family that beats its own children and odviously thanks it is ok! F**k you and your mouth. Do you know what it is like to wake up everyday without your child beside you? I would NEVER NEVER NEVER hurt a child. You belong in cell right next to that "wholesome innocent catholic baby MURDERER"!!! Or better yet in the cemetary like my 19 lb 17 month old baby. Only cowards kill babies.

It's not that hard to understand!

You can keep reading into it over and over and try to blame everyone else but you are wasting your time and energy. No one else in the entire world killed that innocent child except Jose Garcia. You can play the blame game on the parents, the court, the attorneys, and everyone else, but what it all comes down to is HIS shoe prints all over her body.
You are right, there are two sides to every story, but what kind of defense can you have against such undeniable evidence?
Excuses Excuses..... They have hard-core evidence, and enough to convict him. That's all that truely matters in the end.

And if I had my way with this case, the "babysitter " would have charges as well.

I do not know anyone involved, nor have I been given any other information than what the "news" has provided us with, but remember there is an innocent child who tragically lost her life to to the ignorance of someone who should have known better.
My prayers are with this family!!

My comment is to the Daily Times. Why did you feel it necessary to print quotes (lies) from Mr. Garcia on page one trashing his attorney, and then printed only one sentence summarizing the testimony of two witnesses telling the truth on page six? There was plenty of testimony rebutting the alleged ineffective counsel claim that would have presented a fair account of the hearing. Instead, you present his outlandish statments as fact and assisted Mr. Garcia and his lying sister in attempting to damage the reputation of a hardworking, extremely competent attorney. Your reporter really needs to attend Courtroom Reporting 101 so that he will recognize someone caught in a lie, and should try to print the truth upfront in his articles, followed later by the untruths. What we have here is ineffective reporting.

Know your rights, I do not know the attorney in question. I do read the Daily Times diligently. I have little faith that what I read in the paper is the whole story. I do not believe it is ineffective reporting, but lazy, incompetent reporting. It is not just this reporter, but those in other areas of the paper who fail to ask follow-up questions.

More than Teagan what chance was she given, 20 lbs vs. 150.
You can try to make the parents look irresponsible all you want but when it comes down to it Jose's foot prints were on that baby. The baby who was healthy well feed and happy, that does not sound like an abused child to me.
At this point you should get down on your knees and thank God that you can go visit Jose on visiting days. You do not have to visit him in the cemetary. If he had been stomped to death while out on bond it wouldn't have surprised me. I guess now you can be angry that the parents can go see Teagan every day (cemetary) and you have to wait for visiting days.
The only one I haven't seen you blame is Teagan.
Get off your soap box and accept the fact that Jose killed a defenseless baby. Say a few prayers for the family, let the family be and put the blame where it belongs. The blame belongs on a young man, but not near as young as his victim.

I just want to say that by using the word catholic, I was only refering to the fact that he says God is on his side. I apoligize for the choice of words there, but I know he is going to hell.

I am Catholic myself but I took no offense by your words. The only ones who need to take offense are the ones who remember their God when it suits them. You don't have to be raised in a Catholic church or any church to know right from wrong. I do believe though that if he is truely repentent God will forgive him as he has promised. That is the belief of many not just Catholics. Taking communion and going to confession does not do a thing if it is not done with true repentence. True repentence is not I was tricked, it is this is what I did, I accept what I did, I abhore what I did, and I beg for your forgiveness.
Sorry to get on a soap box folks but this is how it is whether you are Catholic or any other religion.
I hope "just me" reads this and thinks about her own stance on this subject.
I will continue to pray for the family of Teagan for peace and acceptance in their life. Teagan does not need our prayers she is at peace. She is in heaven now, but that does not make life any easier for thows who loved and knew her and will never forget her. God Bless all of you

O.K. seroiusly, the McKinney's are not hateful, terrible user-type of people. They have lost the most precious of gifts they were given in this life. They did not ask for ANYTHING but justice to be served! Those of you who feel it is nessesary to say these awful things about them and most of all the mother are inconsiderate and shouldn't be judging others. The fact still stands that Jose Garcia KILLED an innocent child. It is not the mothers fault that she trusted her child would be safe with the babysitter. If you think it is wrong to go out once in a while, you are obviously not a parent. Ya'll need to back off and look at the truth before opening your mouths! Jose has not shown any remorse for his actions, I was sitting in the court room for all the hearings, he is only worried about having to be in jail. For crying out loud, he wants 2 years of probation for killing her. He has not shown any problem with his actions, just wants to continue living his life as though he is the victim. I wish there was a stronger sentence for him, but unfortunatly he will be back on our streets in 30 years.
