another sad story

Another story that pisses me off royally. If you ever wanna boil my blood, talk to me about people who hurt kids. I have no patience or empathy. Personally, I think those sick people should get the needle. THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR HURTING A CHILD. It sickens me how our judicial system protects the abuser. IT IS WRONG!

Read this and prepare to be sad....I'll bet you money that she claims mental illness......

Mother accused of death of infant in dryer
Infant suffers third-degree burns, head trauma

BOGALUSA, La. - A mother was booked on a charge of first-degree murder for allegedly placing her 3-month-old son in a clothes dryer and turning it on.

The infant had third-degree burns over 50 percent of his body and suffered blunt force trauma to the head, the St. Tammany Parish coroner said.

Police Sgt. Darryl Darden said Lakeisha Adams, 18, called police to her home on Monday to report that someone had killed her child. When officers arrived, they found Jailand Adams on a sofa. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Darden said Adams admitted during questioning to putting the infant in the dryer and turning it on, but did not say why.

Adams also has a 1-year-old child who was placed in state custody, police said.

If convicted, Adams faces death by injection or a life sentence. The first-degree murder charge is mandatory under Louisiana law because the victim was under age 12.

Someone recently asked me why I read this stuff. I read it because the kids deserve attention. They deserve not to be forgotten. Even this many years, I can still tell you the names of Andrea Yates' kids. I cannot BELIEVE she's getting a new trial. I don't care how "sick" she says she was. People who hurt kids do not deserve our kindnesses. Posted by Picasa
