    Great, this thread has turned into garbage regarding "trash". I guess I will post about the OP in the other thread about this issue just in case anyone wants to discuss it.

    Re: Grandmother faces capital charge in death of Alabama third-grader

    Hmm, I think too many conclusions are being jumped to.

    Making a child run carrying firewood has not been proven to be child abuse. So to say that this happened during another felony is a bit obtuse. I think its horrible and awful, but I still don't think that the grandma meant to kill the child. And that law stating that any death under age 14.....I don't see how that can be enforced. I mean....so had the kid been 14 and this happened it would be "better?"

    That's nuts.

    Apparently in this case it did.

    Actually, no. You've assumed that she literally intended to drive her child to collapse, but unless you are inside of her mind, you have no idea what her intentions were. Some of us have accepted that reality. Your turn.

    The grandmother is an abusive criminal and is responsible for the death. She should be charged.

    Indeed, but charged with what is the question.

    I wasn't yelling. I was pointing out your abusive generalization by using a stereotypical slur that encompasses tens of millions of women in this country, if not more. Statistics without context are meaningless. Statistics quoted off the top of one's head without a source are merely justification of an unjustifiable generalization.

    K, but as I said in the other thread; I don't know if this is actually murder. And I certainly don't think it's murder deserving of a death penalty conviction.

    I agree life in prison is good enough.
