      Everyone keeps saying that we need the death penalty back but i don't want them to die so easily. If they get life w/o parole then they will have to live with what they did for the rest of their (hopefully) long lives and endure the punishment handed out by all the fathers and mothers that they are incarcerated with which will be the worst part.

      What type of God do you worship? If any. Besides, God don't like ugly. Look at the woman's face and you can tell that someone obviously didn't like what she did. I don't feel sorry of either one of them. Another Angel has gone to be with the Lord. Amen!!!!!

    this is beyond sick! if you didn't want to be parents you could've dropped that child off at a hospital,fire station,church, relatives anywhere safe. You took a childs life because you couldn't cut it as a disgusting. I hope they both rot in jail

    Things like this make me flabbergasted at the evil in this world. A one year old? Really? Poor child. And the ONE person he trusted…

  • Shameful

    Now how in the hell did her eyes get so purple?….all of these shenanigans when she could have simply dropped the baby off at DCFS and said I can't care for him. What a waste of parents.

    As a father this story breaks my heart. What happened to this child was cruel to say the least. In the near future, God’s Kingdom—a government now established in the heavens with a compassionate Ruler, Christ Jesus—will exercise full authority over the earth. It has already cleansed the heavens of Satan, the source of all cruelty, and his demons. Soon, God’s Kingdom will satisfy the needs of its peace-loving subjects on earth.
