I'm just thinking about the kids here..........

I don't understand why the SA's office didn't want to go to trial with this. 1 to 2 years suspended sentence is nothing. She will do very little jail time. If you take it to trial what do you have to lose? She should do jail time for what these innocent children suffered through. If people aren't held accountable, how will things get changed?

Ms. Brooks is as responsible as her 'monster' husband in what those kids went through. She had the choice to prevent this from the very beginning and chose not to. There are a number of safety nets she could have reached out to for help.

She is an adult. We shouldn't be focusing on her as the victim, we should be focusing on the children as the victims. Her job as a parent is to protect her children no matter what the situation. These children had no choice, they NEED to be protected, even from their parents. It sounds like she protected herself and allowed her children to suffer. She allowed her children to continue to be 'raped' because she didn't want get beat up by him.? She should not have the right to care for any children until she makes some serious changes.

Our judicial system is failing us, failing our children.

She is going to testify against her husband - her lawyers say she has memory lose? The DA is calling him a "monster" adding to his appeal already if he is found quilty.
The DA needs to keep her mouth shut. A case now on appeal is where she called a black man on trial for stabbing a white racist who jump the black man - "part of a gang" when this was totally false.
Yes - people - we are going to have to spend more money on appeals in the State Court and maybe the Supreme Court again.
I love how we tax payers are paying for her Resume!

When the story of this horrible crime was first reported in the Banner, the article stated that Ms. Brooks was in the doorway WATCHING her husband abuse her child!!! As far as im concerned she is just as guilty as he is (if not more so) She ALLOWED the abuse to occur and even seemed to "get off" on it! What goes around comes around.....she has to live with herself and her actions WILL have reactions. Ultimately she will be punished. I just pray that her children are not allowed anywhere near her!

ok first of all ..."every person is innocent until proven guilty" and some are guilty even innocent..I know both of these parents and the children and yes the children have suffered most..but let me say these children have not been raped when using one's name on here but they have now become rape victims of the media! And children are not children forever and the truth will come out eventually..maybe doing things to make your situation better as requested to do what's best for your children all the way around is what you MUST do as a parent..people can be put in nightmare situation's at the blink of an eye and it may even be hard to prove without the right justice..and i can tell you they have him guilty already and he hasn't even touched a court room..as a taxpayer I will pay top $ to protect the innocent! God Bless this entire family...
