How very sad. I hope they are being punished for this horrible crime every day of their lives. I have no pity for them. 3 grown ups against a small innocent baby. Plus the others that knew she was being abused and did nothing about it.

I'm really shocked to see, I saw this yesterday and I was disturbed ...poor baby, I feel like hugging her:(
I'm not able to understand y her own mother used to bite her...that's pathetic...the culprits have no right to live.

This is one of the saddest things I had ever seen. I can't imagine what would drive someone to do that to a little angel. Her parents and uncle are not people, they are monsters and I hope they pay for what they did because they deserve the worst. Atleast baby Briana is in peace now.

God will NOT forgive you for your cruelty you are not human, I wouldn't even consider you an animal.Because even animals take care for their young. i consider you FECES, hope your soul burns in Hell. But then again you don't have one. The worst possible death would be to good for you devils, because thats what you are. Go to your father in HELL, you bastards

Does anybody know who we can send this story too? Maybe we can get this cruelty to our children stopped! Even if we can save half of our babies that would make a big difference. Too many people are too into their lives that they hear this story and ignore it. IT is time that we speak out and fight this demonic, evil thing that is happening to our angels!!!!!

Here is how it should go: Child Abuse resulting in death- DEATH SENTENCE; Murder above the age 18 that had brutal intent- DEATH SENTENCE; Child Abuse- LIFE WITHOUT PAROL; Murder and DWI resulting in death- LIFE WITHOUT PAROL; DWI (first offence), Aggrevated assault, Thieft and drug dealing- give the 12 to 18 years!!! What the hell is our Country coming too?? I am a commoner and have more common sense!!!!! How do I become one of the law makers????

God Bless baby Brianna, she is safe now. I gave birth to my daughter 1 day after her death, I couldnt read it or pay attention, it broke my heart to much to hear of such terror. My prayers are with Brianna and all abused children...

Although this story is very disturbing it is crucial that we share with people that these things really do happen. My niece died exactly six years ago in October due to a birth defect. My sister would have done anything to have had her daughter with her today. It saddens me to know that there are people so sick and disturbed that they can take this little Angel and hurt her in the form and ways that they did. They deserve so much more then life in prison or even the death penalty. Kudos to the people who are working so hard to get the law changed. In Loving Memory and Prayers for Baby Brianna and to my niece.

Govenor Richardson where are you? What good is the Universal health Care Plan when parents like this do not take their baby to the doctor. We need help getting the law changed. There is no way those evil parents and family members should only do 18 years. They deserve to be stoned until they cry out for God to have Mercy on them. The dad and Uncle deserve to get their d---s to be cut off and then fed to them for dinner. What happened in their upbringing. The grandmother deserves to watch them get stoned and then be stoned. Baby Briana you are in a peaceful place where these evil acts and people can never get near you again. Too bad the rest of us have to live in the same unjust world. So much for our law makers. They too shall be judged on the last day for allowing this haneous crime go unjust.

I have seen thie sad story earlier on Fox 2. This is very annoying and disturbing. Makes me want to rip the heads of these people that did this to their own little child. I cannot believe this, what were they thinking! What bothers me is that, WHY didn't her so called grandma or uncle take her into their home?! The state needs new and tougher laws, 18 years ain't enough for this people that abuse their children. Baby Brianna is now in a good and safe place, she's in Gods arms.
