And just how in Hades is this man not responsible for his baby's death? He fired the shot that killed the child!!!!!! Not to mention if he'd never had the drugs in the apartment in the first freakin' place, these men never would have been there to rob him. This stinks of a coverup! Someone screwed up, plain and simple. At the very least, this man needs to be charged with homicide by neglect!

A drug dealer shot his own daughter in a shoot out and is not being charged? This is insane if he wasn't dealing drugs with the baby this wouldn't have happened. He should be charged with the murder of his own child along with being a drug pusher.He was at fault not the 2 sitting in the car.

Sad, sad , sad ! A innocent child lost. If you can't trust and depend on your parents to take care of you , look what happens. I guess God needed this little angel with Him. Parents, please set a better example for your children. They need you!

This all happened because of drugs and all five seem to be involved. They should all be charged with murder and if found guilty executed.

That's what happens in the drug dealing life style. Rappers glorify it.

DOG KILLING CHILD MEANS HOMICIDE WITH TERMINATION OF LIFE. PARENT SHOOTING CHILD IS NOT HOMICIDE. RAPE 2 CHILDREN AND GET OFF. HAVE A GUN AND GET PRISON IN LIFE. CHILD HAS NO PROTECTION FOR ASSAULT AND BATTERY. CHILD GET MAD AND TELL SOME YOU WILL KILL THEM AND YOU ARE CHARGED WITH CRIME AND EXPELLED.
LACK OF CONSISTENCY.

that is what happens when a nation tries to hard to satisfy everyone. hopefully, times will change, but until a change is made, problems will continue to grow out of control.

This is such a sad story and I hope anyone who is dealing drugs realizes that they affect many lives. Drug dealers are very selfish and don't consider who gets caught in the crossfire until it's too late. My mother was a crackhead for many years and the men who dealt those drugs to her didn't care less. Sadly, I think that this was God's way of telling the mother to get away from the father. Sometimes bad things happen to teach us lessons and for something good to come later. If she still wants to be with him after this then God help her and her son.

To all the women out there that are dealing with a man who is not worthy, please leave him alone. Ladies you know when a man isn't "right" but for some reason you hang around like there is no other man on this earth. There are plenty of men so stop sticking with Mr.Right now. I don't care if you have a child together because as you can see from this sad situation, it would have been better to only get visits from dad. Please put God first and your children next. It's not about you and what you want, It's about the best thing for your children. Take care of your children and God will take care of you.
