    Serves her ass right. She violated 2 major no-nos in my book. First and most importantly she left a loaded weapon unsecured in an area where a child could gain access. And secondly and just about as severe she left a toddler age child unattended in a vehicle.

    Some lines just shouldnt be crossed and that woman deserves whatever the law can get her for.

    She should be charged with manslaughter at the very least and be stripped of all of her parental and legal rights after doing some time in the can. I hope they throw the book at her.

    Damn! Stories of the loss of an innocent child just tear at my heart. Even more so when it's at the hands of irresponsible adults.

    Somebody needs to get a rope.

    The real sad part is some bottom feeding attorney will help her be declared mentally incompetent to stand trial and she will get away with it.

    It sucks that the kid is dead. But I don't believe a 3-year-old has a big enough hand to shoot a gun. A 9mm automatic? I call BS.

    Who in their right mind shows off a pistol to a 3 year old child as a toy? The story says that the dad? Was allowing the 3 year old to handle the gun until another adult said something. I hope that this haunts both of them until they take their last breaths. I have a young daughter and could never imagine allowing her to play with a gun as if it were a toy. This is a perfect exapmle for why some people should have to take a test to breed. Just my opinion.....

    I have a 3 year old daughter and can't imagine leaving he alone for more than a moment because she is always into trouble. My brain can't even get around leaving a 3 year old unsupervised around a loaded gun! :banghead:

    First off, this is a sad story. And I dont agree that "it serves her right" for leaving the kid with a loaded gun in the car. While this was a monumental mistake, it was a horrific mistake that led to the death of a 3 yr old child and the mother must be sick out of her mind. Who knows the whole story. Could it be that her husband or boyfriend left the gun there and she didnt know it was there? I mean I am not making any excuses, you should know these things and make sure of these things but its possible she didnt even know. Its a horrible situation and I hate it for everyone involved. If she knew the gun was in the car, she will have to be charged. But, she has got to be sick out of her mind for being so stupid.
