    Early on there were comments about "inconsistencies" in the mother's story. She was just so... into addressing the crush of reporters. She even pulled back her hair and shove her ear toward the nearest camera to show where one of the bullets grazed her (couldn't see so much as a scratch, although camera's aren't exactly HD in the field). She was also shot... in the leg... while the baby was shot square in the face.

    Something in her words... I'm paraphrasing somewhat because I can't recall exactly... "They told me to give them money. I said I don't have any money. They reached for my purse. They said they'd kill my baby. I said no, don't kill my baby. Then they shot me and killed my baby." First, though, she went through this detailed description of how she decided to go for a walk because she realized she didn't get out enough, and it would be good for her to get out, and how she was so close to home when it happened (although nobody saw or heard a thing). Also, she said they ran off but didn't mention whether they'd taken her purse or not.

    After that she went into great detail about grabbing her baby and looking for a safe place, went into a stranger's driveway (although she was just a few doors from her home) and tried to give cpr, describing how she could see the baby's chest moving, but he wasn't breathing on his own, and then the police came and they did cpr too, but "then we lost him."

    You know, that's just a bunch of details that most traumatized parents wouldn't be sharing in an almost enthusiastic manner during a press briefing. I got a really nape-hairs-prickling vibe from her, that's all.

    Its really sad you're turning this cold-blooded murder into a race issue.

    That's a lot more likely than racial slurs "provoking" someone to shoot a baby.

    If her injuries are self inflicted, that will be obvious enough and reported soon.

    I hope the perpetrators are found guilty and punished.


    That said, does this type thing bother anyone else?
    West said detectives showed her photographs of about 24 young men. She pointed to one, saying he looked like the gunman.
    "After I picked him, they said they had him in custody," West said. "It looked just like him. So I think we got our man."
    I always feel uncomfortable when eye whiteness accounts are the main evidence used in a case. People make mistakes and some even lie outright. I do not feel that locking someone away for a very long time because someone said you committed a crime with out other absolute proof is the right way to go. It leaves to much room for untruthfulness and mistakes.

    I don't care that they're teens. If convicted they need a face full of lead themselves.

    That said, this whole story doesn't ring true with me. The only thing that has been consistent is the fact that there is a dead baby, and someone shot the poor little thing. The mother seems... off. If I'd just seen someone slaughter my baby, I wouldn't be giving long, rambling interviews within hours. Everything she said seemed so practiced, so nonsensical (the way she made a big deal of running into a driveway with her baby, after the perps had left instead of screaming for help, for example). She seemed more nervous than griefstricken... then again, people deal with grief differently.

    All I know is that when I saw her, my brain whispered "shades of Susan Smith." If the police can't find the murder weapon and tie it to their "suspects", you can color me skeptical about the entire quick-turnaround arrest based on... well, based on nothing that's been made public beyond they fit the descriptions.

    Yeah, I'm cynical. I know. But I'll wait and see what happens on this, because I'm not getting the "aha, justice will now be done" vibe.


    I'll grant you it's really kind of weird how she keeps saying "my baby" instead of using a name. After seeing the video I can understand why there is some question.

    This part bugged me:

    West said detectives showed her photographs of about 24 young men. She pointed to one, saying he looked like the gunman.
    "After I picked him, they said they had him in custody," West said. "It looked just like him. So I think we got our man."
    1. Ridiculous choice of words. "I think we got our man"?
    2. "I think" seems like a hedge.
    3. Maybe they had him in custody at the time of the crime and haven't let her know they're on to her?

    West said she thought the other suspect looked much younger: "That little boy did not look 14."
    Sounds like she doesn't want a second (14 year old) kid taking the wrap.

    Thanks for finding that... I suck at Google.

    Actually, though, it gave me the creeps all over again, the way she was kinda crying, then would suddenly stop to point out the house where she took the baby and give the address, then back to kinda crying...

    Bah, I'm suspicious, what can I say? And that Barney Fife police department that immediately scooped up two kids then held a press conference to basically tell the world that their town was really a safe town, blah-blah-blah, more PR, more blah-blah...

    I hope those kids are guilty, because I have a gut feeling they're going down for this no matter what.

    It doesn't really matter if anybody used a racial slur. You don't shoot a baby in the frickin' face.
