The kids got into the car by themselves ... granted she should have been paying attention to them but sometimes an accident is an accident.

This already happened in Buncombe County, where a woman took her child to work and left him in the car, but checked on him occasionally, with the windows down, and brought him food and water, but he still died. I think the sentence was similar.

What we should be focusing on is a living wage, affordable childcare, and just maybe birth control.

You're kidding, right? Please tell me you're joking! Are you saying that the 4 year old and the 2 year old twins are responsible enough to know better than to play in a car??? GIVE ME A BREAK! This woman wasnt shopping, she was SLEEPING! No doubt sleeping off her crack high. What kind of mother would allow her BABIES to care for themselves while she sleeps???

Where is the outrage?? Where is the justice?? 144 hours of community service and 3 years probation in trade for the lives 3 INNOCENT CHILDREN? Five freaking posts?? The flag issue has had over 2000 posts and counting and the death of 3 children at the hands - directly or indirectly thru neglect doesnt matter- of their mother gets FIVE POSTS!!! The members of this forum should be ashamed! And by the way, the "mother" of the boy who died in his mothers trunk while she worked in the A/C was acquitted of all the charges. Yet another injustice for children. Its pathetic.

Well that's an understatement. That cow was sleeping (probably crashing)while her not even out of diapers children were roaming around the projects. There is no excuse for that kind of neglect of toddlers. Had nothing to do with child care as she had family who was expecting her to bring the kids over to watch.

Ans this case shouldn't be compared to the other woman who knew where her child was and checked on him continually. This heffer was just too damn lazy to give a rip what happened, she should be doing some hard time right now.

All I can say is, THE PUNISHMENT SHOULD FIT THE CRIME. If I leave my children unattended, at age 5 and under, I am still responsible for what happens to them. I don't know how the powers that be, are able to sleep at night, knowing that they let a child killer off with probation.

Are you for real?? Three innocent children are dead because of an irresponsible parent, who is not being held accountable and you are upset with me? Get a grip on reality.

if i did something like that i would be in jail for life. the mother should be put under the jail. where was the department of family &children services? someone should have called them before the kids died . maybe they would still be here.

again, whatever happened to accidents.... in the old days before everybody was wired and could offer an opinion on everybody's business these kinda' things were considered "family tragedies" now, everyone, including you, goes on conjecture and in your case obvious racism (where did the CRACK comment come from? because she Black?) and portends to be the expert on every GD news story that comes along.

I suppose if a white kid was playing in the woods in Biltmore park and was bit by a snake and died you would blame the parents?

I also suppose that when the deputy in McDowell County was going 120mph at night with no emergency lights on and rear ended a car killing an infant and injuring 3 others in the same vehicle, that it was the parents fault?

You my friend have it all wrong.

In my opinion.

This woman was probably dead tired form working 2 or 3 jobs, with no man around (based on news stories), and could not afford a sitter on her minimum wage salary and never dreamed that her kids could unlock the door and go out and play in the car.

I do not think she has gotten off easy, this will be with her forever.

And, by the way, when one is on probation, there are drug tests, home visits and other structured checks and balances that are in place.

This was probably her first and only conviction, and as sad as it may be, the legal system allows for more lenient punishment for first offenses, and such occurrences as this terrible accident.

If you are upset by the posts here, the the easiest thing to do is not read them.

By the way, would you have been willing to watch these kids for this woman? If so, then make yourself available in your community to provide free child care to those who can not afford it!

Help solve the problem if you have ideas instead of casting racist aspersions on someone you do not know or a situation you do not have all the facts on!

Not from California, right here in Asheville, born and raised... and by the way if it is any of your business I am a registered, voting, REPUBLICAN.

Wrap your brain around that one!

And they gave Scott Peterson Death ???? The only thing they really proved at least to me. They did prove that he was cheating on Laci. They never reall did prove that he killed her or had anything to do with it. Did his actions make him look guilty? Indeed they did but hell alot of people look that way. And alot of people cheat. I wish I could put my ex wife in prison and on death row for cheating on me. This lady killed her 3 kids and got nothing for it but a slap on her finger. She is laughing and her kids are in a much better place than she will ever be....

Imagine it....UNTIL the justice system in this country changes its tune, this is going to continue to happen with more and more children. Think what you want. The fact she had no man around is at least partly her fault. Not everybody who waits tables is ignorant nor pond scum, I do it and I wouldnt have a child and lay down for my sleep time while they were running loose thru the neighborhood. Expecting others to watch your children while you are asleep is beyond stupid. She deserves to fry instead of being on probation. Stew on that. And I dont think the woman who let her child die in Jackson County deserved no punishment, either. Stupidity is no excuse when it comes to YOUR child, regardless of what your opinion is.
