Mom must be pretty stupid if she thinks they don't check for water in the lungs in a drowning case.

Young women should take note of how difficult this mother felt she had it and not become single mothers themselves. It's NEVER okay to murder your children. This mother knew after the first child it was difficult. Why have a second child then? The two children could have been adopted by someone who could have actually taken care of them. It's horrible that two children had to pay for this mother's inability to cope with her life as it was.

She actually had three kids. She left her 5 yr. old daughter at home for some reason and decided to kill her two younger sons. This is a terrible tragedy for all involved. The Mother is obviously mentally ill and will forever be haunted that she killed her own kids, the 5 yr. old has to grow up knowing that her Mom killed her two younger brothers and the Grandmother (Mother's Mother) has to live with the fact that her daughter said she did this because she couldn't take her Mother's criticism of how she was raising her children. Very sad, all around. My condolences to the family.

Oh yea! I forgot about the 5-year-old. I was a single parent of one child and it was the hardest thing I ever had to do. I did make my situation better by working though and I sure as hell wasn't going to have any more kids and I never did. My second child came from my single parent husband and we raised both of our kids together. The only other kids we had together was the furry kind and we're still having those. I feel bad for this mother that she never found an equally satisfying way to handle her single parenthood. I hope this mother's 5-year-old is doesn't go down the same road someday and become a single parent herself. It's no way to start out in life. Somehow young girls have to learn the lessons of NOT being a single parent themselves. I think for some it is chosen as a way to get themselves through life. They soon find out that welfare is not even close to being any kind of soft life. This is a sad, sad event - one that didn't have to happen.

I doubt if this HUMAN RFEMALE will have any remorse over her killing of these 2 boys. First they were just MALE children, and second she, and many others of her gender, just view it as a "LATE" abortion. The female gender has much to do to make themsevles morally accountable.

sad thing about Susan Smith...last I heard of her was that she became pregnant while in prison...talk about irony....actually, irony is a terrible word to use in this case, I guess, tragic would be better...IF, in fact it is true. I don't remember where I read or heard that but I know I did somewhere....then again Zen, what day is it?.....just wait till YOU turn 50........

I agree 100% Capt. Jack, It would have been far better to put them up for adoption or even something as desperate as leaving them on someone's front porch.........anything better than killing them!

Susan Smith pregnant? Is a Black man the father? If a Black man is the father, that sorry bastard should get 25 years in prison on stupidity alone.

Einstein, the babies were dead before they were put in the water. Also if they were found in the water, then it is a foregone conclusion that water would be in their lungs. Geez!

Right you are. But nowadays, one cannot leave their child on anyone's doorstep. There are sexual predators running loose and the abandoned child would suffer a fate far worse than death if a sicko gets their perverted paws on of them.

It was a prison guard and who cares what his race is. It wasn't rape: a tramp is a tramp is a tramp. To bad the death penalty takes so long.

I think you're mistaken on this. Autopsy would determine if water was aspirated into the lungs and therefore if they were alive or dead when they entered the water.
