      Oh that’s great!

      Isn’t it just like the officials to deem
      everything as an isolated incident…

      Any suggestions?

      Melissa is a clueless human being that
      is totally unaware of what the Christian
      Religion is all about. She has not taken
      the philosophy internally. Wonder what
      she was teaching the children in Sunday

      Pass the handcuffs.

      What do we as a society teach our girls?

      What does it mean to be tolerant,

      look the other way?

      Where have all the flowers gone?

      I am glad this woman was arrested. As far as her needing to pay, how do you repay the life of a child. I just cannot understand or comprehend why anyone would want to kill a child. It is rare for a woman to be accused of murdering someone elses child. If she is found guilty of this, her punishment should be until death. If they would put child molestors and murderers in jail until death, our children would be safer. I know our justice needs to be revamped to make our children safe.
