    I can't even find words for this... but I can only hope there's a special spot reserved for her in the warm final destination

    I agree with you... I don't think there's a word available for what I feel right now.

    There were so many options available for this woman. I'm speechless at her actions.

    Speechless.

    This is just so sad all the way around.
    All those ruined lives. The infant dead. The mother locked up for the rest of her life. Her parents lost their daughter.

    Appalling . . . . my 17 year old read it over my shoulder and is incredulous.

    Poor baby.

    I can't understand how a person can stab their child 135 times. That takes a certain amount of malice. That takes time to do all those stabbings. I have to wonder what the heck was going through this girls head when she was doing this. She could have easily (and anonymously) driven to a hospital, police station or fire station and left the baby there. Then she could go back to work and pretend that she hadn't just given birth.

    No, she had to go and stab her innocent child to death. What did this infant do to her to deserve this? I don't think teenagers realize that when you have sex (even if you use protection) there is always a possibility of pregnancy. She probably thinks the baby ruined her life but in the end she ruined her life and the baby's life beyond repair.

    I pray that there is a special special place for her in the after life.

    Would you be willing to elaborate? Is there more to the story than what we've read? Did someone force her to stab the baby? Other than that possibility, I can't personally think of any reason not to be quick to judge this girl's actions.

    We as adults know that this is an unbelieable henous murder of an innocent child. I would say that 99.99% of 17 year olds would feel the same way, however, there are those (just as with adults) who do not think straight for reasons such as drugs or mental illness. The courts will judge her and we know courts are not infallable by any means but God is the ultimate judge and when her time comes he'll make the correct decision.

    The mother in me would say lock her up and throw away the key but then I don't have all of the facts but I don't think that the facts would make me feel any different.

    Excuse me? This teenager had other options, and whether or not she was thinking clearly is irrelevant. She could have gone to any police station, any church, any hospital, even any supermarket and dropped off the baby if she didn't want to care for it. But to stab a defenseless baby 135 times? No. I think we have every right to judge this monster, if for nothing else but the overkill. There is nothing about what she did that I can find any compassion for.

    Not so quick to judge? Yeah, right.
