People grieve in different ways, why is that even a issue? What difference would it make if she was on the computer? Let them grieve and deal with it the way they want, not the way you think they should. She don't owe anybody a explanation to how she is dealing with it. She was HER child not yours or your friend's!! Even if it was a pity party, she needed pity and compassion from someone, she lost her child, her little baby girl. Her baby is gone, she will never be able to hold it again on this earth. Let her be, she is dealing with enough already. It's heartless to act like she doesn't care and ask her to explain how she is coping. Grieve and cope the way you want, it's none of anybody's business. You owe no one a explanation.

Hold up! First of all, I never said she "owed" me anything! I simply asked her what made her think to even get on the computer! And if ya really wanna know. I asked also because her and Sam have both told several different stories! I just wondered how you can go from finding your baby dead to five minutes later "Oh I think I'll go play on the computer"?! Wouldn't the only thing that would be in your mind be "How, why, who, what, etc"?! I would probably lose my mind trying to figure out what caused it and what I might have been able to do to try to prevent it or if I even could have prevented it or whatever. I would have had alot of things on my mind but the computer would not have been one of them.

And evidently a short attention span as well!
A press release from Kentucky State Police at Harlan said a death investigation is continuing. The press release said police responded to a 911 call of a child not breathing. While emergency officials were on the phone with the caller, the grandfather of the caller, a certified emergency medical technician, arrived and took over perfor miinvestigate-death-of-9.mo.it said the grandfarther got there and took over the cpr.so it sounds like some one else was already doing cpr.be for the greandfarther got there.the storys keep changing on all of this.

You know, I can't believe all you ignorant fools on here bad mouthing this family! I have no idea who they are but I'm sure they did NOT use a generator to kill that baby girl on purpose! Accidents happen all day, everyday! Maybe they could not afford a light bill! It's hard getting by these days,ya know! This was an horrible accident but it was not done intentionally and nobody should go to jail for it!!! They were just trying to survive the best way they could, I guess a generator was their last resort! Why can't people worry about their OWN familys and they own problems and keep their no good opinions outta eveyone elses! You never know when a freak accident like this could happen to youe familys, you worthless little sh!*s!!!
im sure if she was not a drug addict,(that i know for a fact!), then maybe, just maybe... they could pay an electric bill! you cant convince me with all the ebt, medical, free housing, etc,pleeze! if they could stay of drugs, the would have electric.. im sure they didnt want for the life of their child to be taken,however, people who drive under the influence dont want to kill their kids either, but they have to answer for it just the same... besides, if they have no electricity, they have no buisness having a child in the home either... geez.. this is 2012!

<quoted text> For the last time. No one is ''talking'' about your daughter. People are talking about a generator being in the house. Amanda do you really think everyone in Cumberland are idiots? Why do you keep lying? The generator was ON & RUNNING OR YOUR CHILD WOULD STILL BE ALIVE. I really wish the government could or would arrest people for being SO F**KING STUPID. I really feel bad for your family Amanda. If you dont have enough sense to know that a generator does not belong in the house. Then you dont need any kids. You and the other adults in the house. Should be locked up, because clearly you dont have sense enough to walk about. You AND Sam HOLD THE TITLE TO THE 2 DUMBEST PEOPLE I HAVE EVER MET.

For the record you can not press charges for slander. You can sue for slander but slander is not a criminal offense.

Im a piece of trash because I think you and Sam are the two dumbest people to ever walk the earth for having a generator in a home? Amanda if you think you can have me or anyone else for that matter put in jail for slander you have got another thing coming.. If anyone should be in jail its you for leaving your child in a home with a generator so you could run the streets.. You left your baby with a man that clearly wasnt able to ''babysit''. How did you come up with the money to hire a attorney for slander, when you couldnt even afford electricty?? Isn't that why you and Sam had a generator in the house? Amanda if you weren't so stupid your child would be alive right now..

Amanda I don't know you nor do I care what happened. However and please read this very carefully; slander is not a criminal offense. You can only go to jail for criminal offenses. Therefore you cannot have someone put in jail for "slandering" you. However when you make a threat against someone, that is a criminal offense. You can go to jail for threatening someone. Just a word of advice you might not want to threaten people, because they may press charges against you.

This is a threat "U best just hope I will never find u cause my baby has not even been in heaven a month and u just can't stop and if Karma don't get ahold of u before I do well thats all I have to say..." it is a crime. Slander is not a crime.

No, believing they are stupid for having a generator in the home does not make you a piece of trash.

But to post the nasty, hurtful things on here that you've posted make you a classless, heartless, low-life piece of trash.

IF you were staying the night because "Sam was so sick he could barely walk" why in the world would leave a little baby for him to watch? That doesnt make sense. Im sorry for your loss, hope you make better choices for your other child. You obviously had a lapse of judgement and now one of your babies has passed away. Very sad!

Why not have a heart and stop saying nasty, hurtful things to or about this lady? I'm sure if the lady had it to do over, she would have done things different. But why do you have to add to her misery with the classless things you continue to say? Have some class. Show some compassion. Stop the non-sense.

It's one thing to get on here and talk trash about people, but when you say things like this regarding a baby's death, I think that crosses a line.
