@ "for carousel" Amen to that! There are a lot of people that support carousel...some of those people are even friends with this child's mother. Just want you to know that you do have people that are on your side.

It's so sad that this little girl is no longer here due to a horrible, freak accident. I just hope that the mother can one day accept the fact that this was an accident that could have happened in her own home. I also hope that she gets some help for her anger, because from what I hear she is making herself look foolish by causing scenes, tearing down signs, stalking, and running her mouth. We all feel for this child's mother, who wouldn't, but when she acts like a psycho, it's hard to feel sympathy for her.

I do agree and believe that when it's your time to go, it's just your time to go. And I believe it was Olivia's time to go and be with God. I didn't know her, but the family needs to focus and remember the times they had with her instead of focusing so much on revenge.

I'm sure the family isn't happy with the outcome of this case. I mean, these people were backed into a corner and had to take a plea. What other choice did they have. At least they still have their school...much to the dismay of the parents, I'm sure.

I hope the family finds peace now. I'm sure just accepting the guilty plea was taken as a form of admission that the school, it's owner and director were responsible for the child's death. Though their hearts will ache forever, I hope that the family can move on. RIP Olivia, for the fight is over.

This is definitly not a victory. Everyone involved loses. And this is far from over, now they have to go through the civil suits. The only money that family will see is from the insurance company...that's if the school even had insurance. I'm sure the owner "got rid" of his property by now and all the others don't have a dime to their names. I'm not sure how a guilty plea can be comforting to anyone when the only reason they probably took the plea was because they felt it was better to plead guilty and get a slap on the wrist rather than leaving their fate up to a jury. As for the DA....maybe now she can go and fight some REAL crimes as this was a choking accident. Not to take away from the fact that it was horrible that a little girl died...but nonetheless, an accident.
