People see what they want to see. You look at the lack of posts here and see racism, and think wow there are less posts because this mother must be white.
Maybe, buddy, its because this is an old case, it didn't just happen. People have already expressed an outpouring of outrage over the death of the poor baby boy. Doesn't mean people don't still care, but
maybe its not quite the same shock and horror as learning three kids were JUST KILLED.
Maybe it is that the sentencing was hardly as publicized as the initial event.

I can tell you the one reason that doesn't explain the lack of many posts to this article.
And that is your supposition that she is white.
She isn't.
So go play "your there must be racism behind this" game somewhere else

Upstate Bob, which do you prefer, a dead child in a garbsge can or a live one abandned at a firehouse, police station or whatever that has a chance to be adopted into a loving family and live a good, productive, happy life? You'd obviously rather punish the mother and never mind whether the kid lives or dies.
try reading what i said.since the mother dumped the child in a garbage can,she should be punished,i would much rather see the child left at a hospital,firehouse etc...in accordance with the law to be adopted into a loving home.

Dear All,
All who are passing all kind of sarcasm on Erma. You really dont know her, she is such a wonderful person. We all have sinned and fall short of God's glory. We might not have killed the child in the way she did but how many of our children are in the septic tanks of our homes and the doctors' office. we must first search ourselves before we cast stones at her. Erma may almighty God forgive you, he is the only judge and may he deliver you shortly. Continue to pray.

By the way, I have an Italian name though I am half Irish, and people make racist judgements about me all the time. Ex. I can't be taken seriously, because after all, I am like Susan Lucci a Drama Queen. Which by the way, I am not. So, the point is, most of us experience racism.

And another thing, just because a woman likes to look nice, doesn't mean she is always a Drama Queen. ok folks?
