So they let the white animals go free with a slap on the wrist , after all a white woman who shakes a black baby gets rewarded with probation, I wonder what a black or hispanic woman would get for doing the same, probably 2 to 7 as the charge she pled guilty to entitles.

Is that judge related to this woman? westchester is a great place to live, we are decent people for the most part who work and raise families. We are also homeowners who pay very high taxes for the privilege of living here, Why is a teen ( as she has been called) who commits a crime taking advantage of free counsel like legal aid ( which taxpayers pay for) where are this criminal parents? they should be paying for her defense, but I guess if I ever commit a crime I will quit my job to qualify for legal aid because evidently they perform miracles, Only in Westchester we have this kind of corrupt judges that would reward a criminal with probation, this doesn't happen in other counties, there if you do the crime you do the time. Great example for young mothers, but I guess the key here is to be the right color when you face the law.
who are you to judge

Did you ever think that maybe the teen had mental issues which were actually produced in court. Of course they dont say things like that cause they want to make everyone look bad. Dont judge a book by its cover. Cause if your child so called "did this" and had mental illness undiagnosed at the time, how would you react? Think before you judge!
