    People need to stop blaming the mother. Do you know her? I do! This woman doesn't deserve all the (edited) that everyone here is saying about her. So what if she wasn't married to either father. Times have changed and as much as some people don't like it, that's the way it is. One person made a comment about welfare. Do you know for sure if she is on it? Again, so what. There are many people that lay their fat asses around doing nothing but having babies to get more money. The fact is, these kids and YES, their mother need prayers right now. People can be so judgemental about things they know NOTHING about. I would have done exactly the same thing if I was in her shoes. If she hadn't, all of them might have died.

    FIRST OF ALL YOU PEOPLE NEED TO KNOW ALL THE FACTS BEFORE YOU MAKE UP YOUR MINDS. IT IS NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS WHO MY CHILDREN WHERE FATHERED BUT THEY UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES DESERVE WHAT HAPPENED TO THEM. AND YOU MAY BLAME ME ALL YOU WANT BUT I DIDNT EVEN SEE MY KIDS BEFORE I WENT FOR HELP.BUT IF I DIDNT GO FOR HELP I DO NOT BELIEVE MY CHILDREN WOULDNT BE ALIVE TODAY. AND AS FOR KNOWING THIS MAN I HAVE BEEN WITH HIM FOR 9 YEARS. HE HAD NEVER SPANKED MY KIDS LET ALONE HURT ONE OF THEM AND THAT GOES FOR HIS OWN DAUGHTER. SO ONCE AGAIN UNTIL YOU KNOW THE FACTS YOU SHOULD NOT JUDGE. ALL OF YOU CAN GO TO (edited)!!!!!!!!!!!

    When you create a welfare state and reward people for being irresponsible and lazy. This is what the outcome is!!!! Put Jesus in your life and get a job.

    In a land which common sense and no longer common, if you don't want kids DON"T have any kids. Don't have kids and treat them like farm animals. It makes me sick when people want kids but don't want to take the responsibility of what it is like to have children. Remember it didn't ask to come into this world. Parents brung it in.

    This piece of trash should have killed himself and saved the taxpayers some money! Any man that attempts to kill children, hasn't a right to live! But I agree with Citizen from Lex. This scum will get NOTHING for this so he will do it again to someone's else's children. Or yet, when he's out of jail, he'll go back and finish killing these children. I for one am for bringing back public hanging! The hell with cruel and unusal punishment! These scumbags don't care how cruel the punishment is they give to their victims, so why should they be treated with any differently! I can see where family members and citizens are going to have to start taking the law into their own hands because THERE IS NO JUSTICE IN THE US ANYMORE! It's not justice for the criminal to be treated with kit gloves while their victims suffer and die! The lawyers have screw with the law so much that it means nothing in the way of protecting it's citizens! So we are going to have to protect ourselves! Buy a shot gun!

    It just don't seem natural for a woman with children to bring such a man into her home...what ever happen to the instinct a woman should have to protect her kids above all else???
