probably one of the worst things I have read all week. Why can't people take care of their children?

Enjoy prison! You should be hanging from a rope, save all the taxpayers lots of money, but 25 years works too.

25 years? What a pathetic sentence. At least life in prison without the possibility of parole would of been the perfect penalty since she is not able to go to the gallows. She should of had her fat a$$ hauled out of the courtroom and strung up immediately and be done with this loser of a life. Her daughter had no chance and was murdered slowly and maliciously. How can the law and the judge not see the this obvious torture and pronounce a proper sentence? 25 years is a skip in the park for this POS. Post photos of her daughters autopsy just outside of her cell for the next 25 years as a clear reminder to her of who she murdered because she was too busy playing on the computer. Also, have a continuous recording of a three year old girl crying and have it played in her cell day and night for the next 25 years.

The husband in this case deserves the same sentence that she got. Actually the one that she got is not nearly long enough. Both of these low life monsters did nothing while their child starved to death.

That's it? Some sentencing guidelines and statutes need to be changed and the death penalty needs to be put back on the table especially for murdering children willfully or not.

Agree with this, along with what everyone else has said.

25 years being "pampered" in a prison cell with our hard-earned tax dollars is NOTHING compared to what this poor little girl endured during her 3 short years.

Feed this woman CAT LITTER, pay her NO attention, let her rot in her own mess and the messes of others- and really make her see what her child went through.

Until then her words mean nothing, she really has NO IDEA what she put this little girl through and there is no way she is truly sorry. So sad...

Lets see, the husband is active duty has to leave. He lets his commanding officers know whats going on (Trust me, its like jumping thru hoopes and more) and now both are going to jail.

I know somewhere right now sits an officer in the Armed Social Service network totally overworked opening and complained from 2009 about this girl.

Watch the movie "Gamer" I have friends who play WOW it can be quite addicting

I love watching the common morons get all self richeous. Makes people feel better to look down their noses at others. Compassion, understanding, withholding judgment, obviously these ideas are over most topix posters' heads.

This is the cancer that is killing civilization.

I think I'll save my compassion and understanding and prayers for her daughter ~ playing ia video game is not an illness, this is flat out total neglect by a person who should have never had children in the first place. She watched her daughter rot to death...she does not deserve my compassion, I'm sorry that bothers you.

So many people love nothing so much as an excuse to open their hate valve all the way. Clear moral high ground is nothing but an excuse to do what you already crave, which is to be dripping with hateful contempt for those you consider lower than you.

I am not impressed with moms crocodile tears or dads pleas either. Where were the authorities and the rest of the family while this child was being starved to death. One child had already been removed why didn't the family check on this poor baby? It seems to me that there is plenty of blame to spread around but frankly it doesn't matter anymore since this child is DEAD now. This story broke my heart. I wouldn't wish that sort of life on anyone, least of all an innocent child.

Really? Doesn't this sound like a judgement to you? You would have people withhold judgment from a woman that starved her child to death, but appeared to have time to feed her cat? A woman so clearly evil that she denied her CHILD the proper medications and care to the point where the babies teeth were rotting out, while she talked to people she has probably never seen before. And at the same time, you come here to pass judgment on people so horrified, that all they can do is post a message on a chat board, all so you can look down your pious nose at them? Why not just save your hypocrisy for a rainy day? I mean seriously, there may not be enough to go around soon, and it sounds like you may have it in spades.
Morality, and truely moral people, are REQUIRED to pass judgment.

Why do people like her expect to be called a 'mother' when she neglected her child?

Forgiveness is for those that deserve it...This chick is only sad NOW because she's about to do long time...Probably has some sort of mental defect but you know what?

I don't care...Let her suffer...Let her guilt eat her up till she does the right thing and takes herself out at the end of a rope made of sheets.

Sometimes people are damaged and though I understand that it's a biological chemical psychological problem in the end it's no excuse...A person like that will always continue to do stupid bad things unless watched and monitered to take her meds.

We have messed with Darwin's Theory in that only the healthy and strong should survive...We have too many weak and broken people who only make it because we let them survive...Too many excuses for too many people.

"He's poor!...He was uneducated!...He's too young to understand!...He was abused!...He has learnnig problems and didn't understand the consequences!...Etc"

Ever have that bad dog that attacks everyone no matter how much attention or love you show it?...It's not the dog's fault...It's just wired wrong but either way the dog has to be put down because it will always be one step away from hurting someone.

Same as this lady...One day she'll be cured but do I really care?...No...At this point she's a waste of time and resources.

@John.I know right. Its nothing like 4 years ago when those four mexicans not only beat their 9 month old daughter to death but raped her multiple times. But if you wanna get racist talking about crimes how about every other week some 16 year old wetback is in jail for shooting up someone they had a disagreement because you people cant get it through your kids thick retarded skulls gangster life is for hopeless losers with no futures.

Are you going to pass judgment that child back to life? Is anyone going to make the world any better by raising hell on a message board about how outraged they are by this one example of something that has been part of the human race since before we invented agriculture?

I'm passing judgment in the sense that humans at a zoo might "pass judgment" on monkeys throwing their dung, by laughing at them.
