I lived in laredo and have witnessed thats people who live in mexico have lonestar just by having and address... Shame on you all for having denied those two children because thats you you all have denied and sadly helped with what they have gone through.... It wasn't your money to begin with but it is partial fault.. Hope you can't live with that.

Such a tragedy, that a mother felt so desperate, that she would kill her children, I am a bit surprised, she had a gun, you have to ask yourself where did she get this gun?, also a witness claims he saw the family come out of the woods not wearing any shoes, the children looked dirty and uncared for, why didnt someone call the police, or the State and or offer assistance, also the State office denied her claim for assistance, WHY. All this is adding upto one thing, this women had no business with these children, she was incompetent, and it sounds like these children were just neglected all the way around, the family claims this women had mental Illness, she most likely did, so why didnt the family go find these children, and rescue them, at the end of the day, we are all responsible for what has happened here, if you see a family that looks desperate, and asking for help, dont judge and turn away, help them with all you can, and if you cant then call the police or another agency that can.
This should be a wake up call for everyone here in our small town of laredo. So quick to judge and so slow to point her in the right direction to the foodbank the bethany house and others. Dont judge but thank the lord your children have food in their table not because we deserve it but because God is mercyful. We never know if we will ever be in her situation.
