What is this world coming to when not even our babies are safe from thugs?! :(

This just makes me sick to my stomach! And that poor mother. The 17 y/o can be tried as an adult, but not sure how much time the 14 y/o will get. To be that young, & to have no value of an innocent little life like that, tells me they don't belong out in society ever again!

  • Depending on the state, the 14 year old can be charged as an adult too. In NY, there is no minimum age. In Wisconsin, minimum age to be tried as an adult is 10. And ANY crime committed as part of a gang is automatic waiver to adult court.

  • I think the 17 year old should be put to death, but the 14 year old, not so sure, I think that he was hanging with a bad crowd, but you never really know what someon will do who you are with, I would say he needs to be in a facility until 21 and then evaluated to see if he can be released.
    I cried over this story as well!

  • I can't even read about it because it's so upsetting. There are just so many disturbed people in the world.

    I didn't read the article so maybe it explains this but, who lets their 14 year old hang out with a 17 year old.

  • I can't read it. But from the responses and what OP has written, I can't read it, I already know what happened. Why have our younger generations not grasp the fact that life is precious, especially the innocent. Could this be some kind of horrible gang initiation? I don't know how a momma can have the strength to carry on after this kind of needless, senseless, cruel tragedy. These young murderers must be dead inside already to do something like this.

  • That is my absolute worst fear... and it happened to her. I don't know how anyone could go on after that. I would shrivel and die.

  • Were there witnesses? I read that the weapon has not been found. Sad, no matter how you look at it, but I just get this feeling that this story is not what it seems. Why would they kill the baby, but not the mother who could ID them? If they wanted money, why not kill the mom and search for money? The baby wouldn't have money, right? Why did it take 5 shots from point blank range to nick her ear, and shoot her leg?
