JUST TO LET EVERYONE KNOW. TO SET THE STORY STRAIGHT. MY AUNT, THE MOTHER OF MY COUSIN JAMILET SOSA WERE IN A TAXI VAN. IN NEW YORK BY *LAW*, IT IS NOT REQUIRED TO HAVE CHILD SEATS OR FOR ANY ONE TO HAVE TO EVEN BE RESTRAINED IN A TAXI CAB OKAY. AND I MUST SAY BEING A MINORITY HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THIS AS I READ IN AN EARLIER POSTED COMMENT, ITS REDICULOUS HOW MUCH SHIT PEOPLE TALK. IT REALLY HAS OUT RAGED ME TO HAVE TO READ MOST OF THESE COMMENTS POSTED. ANOTHER CAB STRUCK THE ONE MY FAMILY WAS IN UNFORUNATLY THE CAB WAS AT 40 MPH AND CAUSED THE CAB TO SPIN AND THAT IS WHEN JAMILET WAS EJECTED FROM THE VEH ALONG W/ HER MOTHER. MY AUNT DID NOT KILL HER DAUGHTER ARE YOU FUCKING CRAZY WTF TYPE OF COMMENT IS THAT!?!? PEOPLE HAVE NO CONSIDERATION FOR OTHERS AND THEIR FEELINGS I WISH YOU HAD THE BALLS TO SAY THAT IN MY FACE. AND FOR WHOM EVER REPORTED THIS STORY, JAMILETS BROTHER WHOM IS 8 YEARS OLD WAS (THANK GOD) NOT THERE TO WITNESS OR EVEN KNOW OF THE ACCIDENT AS HE WAS IN SCHOOL DURING THE TIME.

First of all, the article was correct in stating the child was not restrained by the mother.
Does the mother have a car? Does the mother routinely get around via livery cab? If that's the case, this certainly CAN'T be the first time the child has been unrestrained in a vehicle.
Yup, I'm sure the article doesn't even go into half of the "little things" this mother has done.
THE ARTICLE DOESNT BUT I SURE WILL AS I KNOW FOR FACT THEY TRAVEL MOSTLY BY TRAIN, AND WALKING. NO THEY DONT OWN A VEHICLE, NO THEY DONT USUAL TRAVEL IN TAXI , EXCEPT FOR THIS DAY AS THE MOTHER OF JAMILET WAS BRING HOME A MATRESS FOR HER SON....

What is there not to understand about the situation?
The mother was negligent - there's no other way you can spin this.
NO YOU DUMB FUCK, YOUR MOTHER WAS NEGLIGENT IN THE WAY SHE RAISED YOU. ITS NOT THE LAW. IN NEW YORK BY LAW IT IS NOT A REQUIRMENT TO HAVE YOUR SEAT BELT ON OR FOR THEM TO EVEN HAVE CHILD SEATS. YOU WOULD SURE THINK IF YOU HAVE TO BUCKLE UP IN YOUR OWN PERSONAL VEHICLE YOU WOULD HAVE TO DO SO EVERY WHERE ELSE. NO ITS NOT BUT IT SURE WILL BE IN JANUARY AFTER THEY MAKE IT A REQUIRMENT FOR ALL TAXI CABS TO INSURE THE SAFETY OF THE PUBLIC BY PROVIDING CHILD SEATS AND MAKING SURE EVERYONE IS BUCKLED UP. YEA BY THE WAY THE LAW WILL BE NAMED AFTER JAMILET

I made the point to bring it up because people will undoubtedly start posting about how minorties don't buckle up their kids - that's because they think they're still living their disgusting countries.
I was actually going to make that sort of comment, but then I remembered the cop's car with his two kids and one neighbor kid in front of me the other day - two unbuckled kids were bouncing around all over the back seat and his son was unbuckled in the front seat.
WHAT DOES BEING A MINORITY HAVE TO DO WITH ANYTHING, AND WHY DO WE HAVE TO BE DISGUSTING OMG PEOPLE ARE SO IGNORANT

seat belts have to be in every vehicle..
the mother is suffering enough no matter what we say, what the law is or who is to blame..
think about katie flynn who died in the head on collision while she was riding in the back of the limo..her mother went to pick her up and her head wasn't connected..think of that image being her mother the rest of your life..why wasnt this child in a seat beat?? personally i think yes the limo driver would of died because he was hit head on but she would of been injured as were the other 7 in the back iof the limo..
if that was me and i went to pick my daughter up and cradle her until the ambulance got there and her head wasn't on her body, you might as well shoot me in the head right there and then..both mothers i believe are suffering enough for their choices to buckle up their children..my nieces and nephews are over 10 to 17 and i still make them all buckle up along with my 6 yr old

Mommy killed you Jamilet wrote:
From The Daily News:
"My baby! My baby!" the mother of Jamilet Sosa screamed as she cradled the lifeless girl in her arms about 1 p.m.
The girl was riding with her brother and 29-year-old mother in a Chevy minivan livery cab.
Not only should the mother should be charged, but the livery cab driver should also be charged.
OH MY GOD AGAIN WITH THE IGNORANCE, WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE!!! YOU SHOULD BE CHARGED WITH BEING STUPID AND NO HER BROTHER WASNT THERE!!!

Actually NYC taxis are not required by law to have seat belts.

I would hope you make your nieces and nephews buckle up - it's required by law in NYS anyway for anyone under the age of (I believe 16) to be restrained in the rear seats.

Getting back to taxis - sometimes you can't buckle up even if you wanted to - maybe this was the case with the two year old. People always stuff them under the seats because they make the ride uncomfortable.

I try to get into the front seat if at all possible.

If I had my kid with me, I would just take mass transit or wait for a taxi with working belts. Too much of a risk - especially with the reckless taxi driving.
