I would like to say that a mother who would do that to a child need to be in jail for life for killing her child. How can you kill a child and live with no feeling in your heart at all. The woman who did the C.P.R was not the mother my understanding it was another woman. She did the crime now she need to do the time. I hear her sometime yelling at her son never seen him go outside to play. Please take this kids from they mother or father who don't want them. And maybe this kids will have a better life to live with out get hurt or harm by there love ones. Let save our child not kill them they didn't ask to be here they just want a chance in life.

I HAVE KNOWN THIS MOTHER FOR QUITE SOME TIME NOW AND SHE WAS ONE WHOM I THOUGHT ALWAYS HAD A MENTAL PROBLEM....SHE WAS ALWAYS HYPE AND DISRESPECTFUL TO EVERYONE AND I MEAN EVERYONE. I LOVED LITTE E AS HE WAS ONE OF MINE. I HAVE SEEN HIM UNHAPPY MANY DAYS..... E WAS A GOOD LITTLE BOY (TYPICAL 4 YR. OLD) WHO NEEDED ATTENTION FOR GOOD THINGS, NOT FOR ONLY BAD THINGS IN WHICH CAUSED HER TO ABUSE HIM.......SHE WAS WARNED NUMEROUS OF TIMES BY MANY PEOPLE AND THE LAST TIME AS I CAN RECALL SOMEONE SAID TO ME SHE STATED TO THE MOTHER, "YOU ARE GOING TO JAIL, YOU JUST KEEP BEATING THAT BOY." SO SAD!!! A MOTHER WILL DO SUCH A THING..........

So you and the MANY PEOPLE who witnessed this mother (and I use this term loosley) do this to this little boy are just as guilty as she is. You all just sat back and did nothing as little Egypt repeatedly got abused until she finally did what you all knew she would do! You knew he was unhappy. You knew something was wrong. You knew she had mental problems. It takes a village to raise a child and in Egypts case the village stood around and did nothing even though they knew he was hurt. Shame on you all!

If everyone jumped on an abusive parent, the world would be full of conflict. While such severe abuse needs to be corrected, we constantly hear of parents saddled with constraining authorities when the children are clearly in need of correction. If this woman was a mental case, then she should have been reported to the so called social service sgencies. Not that that always helps. Probably many times intervention makes matters worse. So what to do?

Someone wrote in the first article that was first published when the child first died, that this was NOT her first attempt to try to kill this child. I'm not speaking of all parents who spank their children. I'm speaking of abusive parents. There is a difference. You, I and everyone else who knows this so called mother know the difference. It doesn't take freaking rocket science to tell the difference between discipline and abuse. If these "concerned" individuals would have stepped in, Egypt would probably still be alive.

Listen to what the people who knew him personally are saying about him. He was a sweet well behaved, typical 4 year old. Retreat to the previous story about this case and read what to person who commented on that story wrote and see if you change your mind about getting the authorities involved then. THIS COULD HAVE AND SHOULD HAVE BEEN PREVENTED. The mother didn't even hide her abuse. Other people witnessed the things she would do to this kid and all they could say is "you're going to jail one day." Did they care that Egypt would be dead when she went to jail?

Don't be quiet to say shame on us for not calling Dss. What you don't know DSS was called and also CPS. They was involed before we know what was going on so don't say thing you don't know nothing about. watch what you say
