So many aspects of this are so disturbing as to be almost unbelievable. The mother of the slain baby waited 6MONTHS to admit to police that she SAW who killed her child. I find that unfathomable. The woman who confronted the baby's family at the hospital asked a very key question: How could they have allowed the child to ride in a car they knew was a gang target. How does a mother knowingly allow 2 older children to openly belong to a gang and expose a baby to that? This is not mere dysfunction or a breakdown of family values. These people made conscious decisions to live this way - as brutal non-humans. It can't be fixed by schools or improved economic conditions alone. People must choose not to live this way.

This is dysfunction but in the hood it's normal. Many things are to blame but young women having kids before they are ready is 90% of the problem. Go to a grocey store in the hood and almost every young woman got kids, but I bet half of them don't have a job with benefits. The only way most hood girls would take birth control pills is if you told them they were ecstacy pills.

I suggest that these young things should be sentenced to go to the petting zoo and pet the little kitties, who some call the tigers or lions. I heard it is good for their mental health [ the animals, no not the perpetrators here] so this could be these gang bangers community service.

I love your suggestion MrC! I think it would be very therapeutic and very much a service to the community!

Well said DB, you pretty much summed it up. People (animals) like this who commit violence against innocent people, should be executed. This is what our society has become with daily reports of murders, violence, drugs, leaving innocent kids in hot cars, etc.

Hope the thug life was worth it.
"You'all knew that car was hot, why that baby in the car if it's hot?" the woman said, according to the file. Hot car? Who knew such ghetto terminology existed? Thug culture can be enlightening. Lots of coverage today about the LR 9. They must be so proud.

Pay young people in these neighborhoods to have the three year birth control inserted in their arms, Fix the schools and increase their time in school and away from their families.

I agree that birth control is sorely needed but until children are no longer a cash crop (yes, insensitive, but nonetheless true) I'm not sure even paying girls/women to take it would be incentive enough. If I can make more by having children that by taking birth control, I'm going to get pregnant.
