We need to get tough with the girls who do this. There is absolutely no reason for this. Any hospital would have taken the child.

Your right. How is it that people do not know that you can drop a baby off at any hospital with no criminal charges or otherwise, as much as it is preached and lectured? Senseless! There is no defending someone who would do this. There are too many alternatives where the baby lives happy and healthy.

This is the worst kind of evil in my opinion, the person that is supposed to protect at all cost is responsible for not only abuse but death, as a mom you can bet your arse that I would cross hell and high water and much much more to protect my children who at this point, can somewhat protect themselves, I cannot fathom taking an innocent baby and throwing it away with garbage.. I take comfort in knowing that this little girl is with her father in heaven, and my prayers go out to the poor woman who had to find this baby in her yard, I personally think I'd need counseling for years just to get the mental picture out of my head..Theres a special place in hell for the mother of this infant...

Or fire department, or police department, or Social Service office. That's state law and perhaps it needs to be publicized once again.

Wiley, there are some people that have no heart or sense of right and wrong. A person that would do something like this doesn't care and all the publicity wouldn't make a difference.

Jail time definitely would and I'd like to be the one to bang the gavel! As many people that would love to have a child and can't. This baby could have been loved by someone. No conscience at all. Threw it away like a piece of trash. it just breaks my heart!

Which leads us to a new topic. Have you ever noticed the people they select for a jury? Now, that's funny.
I have seen the formula for selecting a jury, both from the prosecutors point of view and the defense attorney's point of view. I am suprised that anyone is selected to serve on a jury. I was selected to serve on a jury a few years ago, which suprised me because I was very forthcoming about my profession and the fact that I had several LEO's in my immediate family. Someone wasn't paying attention that day.

I'm surprised that you were selected too, mostly because you seem very bright. It's really humiliating to be picked for jury considering the types that the defense attorney wants.
I was really surprised when we went in for deliberation. The prosecutors star witness and complaining party was their own worst enemy. She got on the stand and shot herself in the foot several times. Everyone was ready to convince the guy until I pointed out the inconsistencies in her testimony. After about an hour, we came back with a not guilty verdict. And it wasn't because I worked for a defense attorney, but her story just didn't hold water. Juries let some guilty go but they also sentence some innocent people because they are unable to think and reason clearly.

I have a 2 year old baby girl and couldent possibly imagine hurting her! What about this house or yard this baby was found in?? Can't they find anything out about the mother somehow by doing a DNA test? Something!!! I haven't heard anythingbelse about this story. The really need to be questining the people living in and around that mobile home. This is truly absurd. If you don't want babies, f!@&$;! use protection. What a disgrace! Justice needs to be done for this poor beautiful baby girl.

I know Im not alone here when I say that even though I already have a houseful of kids that I would have taken that baby in an instant to make sure it was safe, now Im sure if this lil ole fluzzie would have asked around someone would have taken care of this child for her- Ive never met someone so alone in life that theres nobody around to ask for help...random strangers usually will do what they can to help an innocent child..

You're a sick pice of trash! This is about the death of a baby. If you've got a problem with Zimmerman, take it somewhere else. Have a little bit of decency!
