<quoted text>You rely so much on Federal Law. It's no wonder you're so screwed up. Man's laws change. Go ahead keep standing firm on shifting sand. Go ahead keep playing the hypocrite.
Keep shedding your crocodile tears for a murder that you would've supported just a few years earlier.
I truly pray that you get help because you are so diluted it isn't even funny!!! You're just a crazy, home schooling, self righteous, ignorant hillbilly that has 5 little off spring for the sole purpose to further your line of hate!!! You are pathetic and I sincerly hope that you get help for your condition!

Yeah, it is really sad. Probably one of those mothers with stress problems, because if you know 2 year olds.. unpredictable. But I am under no circumstances I forgive her or anything, if you're wondering.
Hey a lot of stress, a child shouldn't be beaten and all that or the mother shouldn't allow anyone to beat her child up, even so if she were or had stress problems.

There is nonw reason for beat and kill a child for that or allow someon in her life to do so.

My mother had 8 of us and alot mostly alone raise us all up, while my father were on the ship for whole months, so why beat someone and abuse one child, if she couldn't handle it, then indeed she should have ask for help than allow her husband or the man in her life beat her child.

Plus we're on the list to adopt. So sending good thoughts your way :)

As to pro-lifers: If they are Pro Life, they should be fighting for ALL life, not just the un born. I don't see them standing up for those who are already here.
I replied on the preceding page to this post. Page 44. Others did too. We care, so please don't lump us all together. These comments confuse those who want to leave their thoughts in memory to her tragedy. May she Rest in Eternal Peace, and may her family find small comfort in all who care.

How did this child get tortured for so long without it ever being noticed??
My heart goes out to this poor little girl. I hope they yank the hearts out of her mother and the other scum of the earth who was involved and let them bleed to death.

And 1 thing you seem to forget abortion is LEGAL, murder is not
no matter how much you want it to change
You know, there was another time in history where people were slaughtered on the same scale, because, at the time, it was "legal". Like the unborn, these people were viewed, and legally declared, not quite human, yet. Like the unborn, they had no voice. And like the unborn, this legal declaration helped to justify the extermination of millions. So, to hide behind the "legality" of the action, in no way, justifies the action.

Abortion is legal...as much as you don't like it or are too ignorant to accept it...it's legal.

It must be the hypocrite thread. We'll pretend to cry for a child that the mother murdered, while we support her right to murder that same child.

You have inspired me to pray. I pray that when you say you spend your time "educating" your children, that you aren't home schooling them. Good Lord. Given your religious fanaticism, that would make it a cult.
We can ALL agree that this poor child deserved better than she got.
As opposed to what? Public and government sponsored indoctrination?

Yea, I can see public education's best educated represenatives on this thread.

In Augusta, GA. today, another young "mother" was arrested for killing her children. Jeanette Hawes stabbed her 1 & 3 year old children multiple times in the chest at a gas station restroom. Another sad, sad story. In the mug shot she doesn't even look upset. It makes my heart ache.

I am confused.........I thought this was a forum to talk about little Riley and the horrible things that were done to herand the support that we all feel for other children and hopefully ideas about how we as a "community" could come together and stop the violence against so many chldren, regardless of whether they are black, white, yellow, purple, or whatever, at the hands of their own parents or other adults. It seems to have turned into a forum (argument) with alot of folks about God, religion and abortion. Come one you guys. Anyone have any solid ideas about how to protect the children???? I liked the post I read aobut pyschological eval for parents considering parenthood. But, what to do if they get pregnant prior to the eval? They have the baby and are penalized by sterilization? Sounds drastic but may be necessary........
Yea, stop slaughtering them...simple as that.

LOL. Yea, it's gotta be that. Otherwise, I'd be right and you can't have that. I'll let my son, who's attending Berkeley, know that I'm furthering my line of hate. Where's your child attending... The State Penn? Oh, that's right, you prefer killing them off before they have a chance at a life.

You gotta love the hypocrisy...again. You accuse me of furthering my hate, but is you who advocates killing children. Who has the real hate; the one who speaks for the unborn, or the one who attempts to stifle their voice?

How could anyone hurt a defenseless child? These people are sick and disgusting and should definitely get the death penalty, even that is too good for them! Breaks my heart!
I totally agree. That's what I've been attempting to get these people to see for pages and pages.
