Why does Haltom City seem like the Texas epicenter for ignorant white trash, crooked judges, abusive cops and child molesters.
It seems like every day Haltom City is in the news with another story about some redneck doing something outrageously stupid.
The entire city should just be bulldozed, maybe with the residents still there.
Just pave the place over.

I want this murderer to be give a lethal injection just so that she can stand before God and TRY to explain why she murdered an innocent child. What is wrong with people like this that they can't reason that sooner or later what they do or don't do will come to light. I pray for the parents and extended family of this baby for their comfort and adjustment for such a cruel and inhuman way for their babie's death.

How can you say that you know them?? If you did, you'd know that Brittany had been sick for awhile, wasn't she? Pneumonia maybe?? Sure was. That should be on the news here soon.

Let's humor ourselves and say pneumonia...(although that is NOWHERE in the autopsy)...where does pneumonia come from? Bacteria and Fungi which live and breed in dark, humid areas....such as CLOSETS....if she was sick why was she around other children? Why was she not turned away? Was your friend that greedy that she took in that child to make more money instead of being consiencious about the childs health and welfare? And why was the child in a closet (I know the apartments, the closet is not well ventilated.) if she had pneumonia? Why are charges still pending if she is innocent?(see: www.tarrantcounty.com , scroll down to Inmate and Mugshots) She has a bond of 250,000....I've seen lower bonds on murder suspects.

Your defense is digging her a deeper hole. I hope the people that defend her get to testify for her in court....the DA is going to mop the floor with you people.

I didn't say she died of pneumonia. Funny, that you said pneumonia lives and breeds in dark places such as the closet, but if you anything, you'd know that the baby died on a monday, right? After the parents had, had her all weekend. Brittany started there the week prior and had been sick and went home early. Also, how do you know how well ventilated the closets are??? Ur a freakin idiot!!! Ha ha ha!! You just made yourself sound stupid!!! Oh and the D/A is going to mop the floor with her family? The D/A may try but the family saw him in action and he has nothing on her. The bail isn't $250k, it's actually $225k....... I understand it's still alot but it shows how false things are printed.....

But...she didn't die in her parents care, she died in a closet that the child murder put her in. I've been to those apartments, I had a freind that rode to work with me that lived in them. The DA has everything on her....she put the child in the closet on a hot day, she was operating a daycare without a license, she muredered that baby...why? because she wanted to ho around outside the apartment. I have already heard the stories. Wait till the other resident get brought in for charactar witnesses....she did not have a clean reputation....she preyed on the needs of others. She preyed on their trust to turn a few bucks.

Well you're saying she was prostituting herself? O.k. this just turned into a legal issue. You cannot legally say things like that at all. I am going to contact a lawyer friend of mine and also topix.net to put a stop to this. I can't believe an adult would behave this way..........

You can contact every "lawyer" friends you want. What is going to happen if the DA brings this up...hummmm? Are you going to find a lawyer for that too? I can legally say things like that....by the way, I worked as a paralegal for 17 years and have a degree in criminal law. Tracking legal issues is kinda a hobby of mine. So you see, ho can either mean getting paid or not getting paid. YOu used the word prostitute. And you would have to prove that this comment resulted in a loss of money (libal) or a severe loss of reputation and I think there are plenty of people who will back me up on this one....let's try some of the guys around there.
Where is the remorse? How can she sleep? Goodness, have some sort of concience. Your "family" is nothing more than a mere baby killing piece of crap.
