    To think that a mother would do that to her children is sick. Some people shouldn't be allowed to have children... I believe you should have to take parenting classes the moment you find out you pregnant to prepare yourself for the struggles you go through with child rearing. She should be having to serve a death sentence for killing her own innocent child. What is wrong with people these days? You can't take care of your kids or don't want them anymore. Social Services will gladly help find your children a home where they will be taken care of.

    Why wasn't the mother charged with "attempted murder"? She knowingly wanted to kill the other child, who happened to fortunately live through this. I also can't believe she did not get life for killing an innocent child. She should have gotten LIFE in prison...if the state officials are worried about running out of money/space for people being sentenced to life in prison for killing someone, then freakin' SHOOT and kill the murderes to begin with! PROBLEM SOLVED! It's not rocket science.
