IF the mother is involved... and there's no way to know that beyond the fact that her tearless cry-stop-cry routine was creepy... I doubt her own wounds were self-inflicted. A theory could be made that the mother... for reasons beyond comprehension ala Susan Smith... simply wanted the baby out of the way. To that end, she and an accomplice arranged the incident at a place where there were no visible witnesses. The accomplice kills the baby, wounds her, then runs away as she starts screaming for help. One neighbor who ran out after hearing shots/screams saw ONE person fitting her description running away. Not two.
Anyway, all conjecture based on a supposedly grieving mother's inconsistent behavior, and my own personal creep-O-meter.
Look at her face. I'm sorry, but the cynic in me thinks that something stinks. I have teenage girls, and I know when somebody is forcing themselves to cry. I've seen this face a hundred times on my girls, when they want their way and are not getting it. Not a single tear on her face, but she's "crying."
What the hell happened here?

This was a baby tho, and the perp shot the baby in the face - I haven't heard of (or could even imagine) something like this.
This is so awful it just pisses me off and makes me question humanity as a race.
Who could shoot this poor little baby boy????
There is no name in the English language to describe the psychopath that killed this little boy.
That seems like an odd thing for a grieving mother to say.
Makes me wonder if she is the same Sherry West from the Philadelphia "house of horrors" abortion clinic case. She does kinda resemble her.
Just thought I'd put this here:
Police arrest 2 teens in Ga. baby killing
On Keeping Belongings -West said she hopes prosecutors pursue the death penalty in the case. At her apartment Saturday, she had filled several bags with her son's clothes and diapers to donate to charity.
Death of a Child – Coping With the Death of a ChildIf you ask a bereaved parent: “What would you have saved first (assuming that there were no people nor animals in the house) if your house was caught on fire?” My guess is that the parent’s response would be: “I’d try to save my (deceased) child’s belongings.” Ask the same question a non-bereaved parent, or anybody else, and you’ll get a completely different answer.
Issues Couples May Face
The first six months following the loss of a child is when the majority of divorces occur. Problems that couples often encounter while dealing with grief include:
Lack of communication with one another.
Disagreement on how to parent their other children.
Being overprotective of other children.
Whether or not to have another baby.
Differences in how to grieve.
Putting blame and guilt on self and/or on spouse.
Turning to alcohol and drugs.
Looking for someone or something to blame.
One wants to talk about the deceased child, and the other doesn't.
Wondering when and where and how to deal with a child's belongings.
Decision about whether or not counseling is needed.
Turning away from one another.
One spouse may tend to feel anger sooner than the other.
One may tend to feel sadness sooner than the other.
One may want to "do" something to make things right again.
One may just want to "be."
If a couple had problems before the child's death, those problems can become more difficult to deal with.Pretty much everything points to parents wanting to KEEP their children's belongings. Not cleaning out the kid's room before his body is even cold. Something REALLY doesn't look right about this now.A local mother who lost all three of her children in four years to cystic fibrosis is asking the public to help her recover stolen items that belonged to her children.

I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
I know it's too early at this point to say for sure she or her accomplish was involved and people may grief differently when faced with such immense tragedy, but it is also true that people who have something to hide will unknowingly give out subtle body language and tone of voice that could be immediately pick up by the inner radar of other people.
Our subconscious human mind cannot be voluntarily controlled or suppressed. The more we try to suppress the true feeling, the more awakward the appearance would be and will come to suface in the involuntary expressions of the muscles of the face, the eyes, the vocal cord and the body movement.
At this point, I am more concerned of the violation of the rights of all the black teenagers in that town that fit the so general of a description given by this woman. I'm very concerned that the two youngsters could be so easily arrested based sorely on merely fitting the general description and identification by the woman.
If the police wished to use pictures of black teenagers for her to identify, they should at least start first with using pictures of teenagers who have solid alibi, such as juveniles who were in custody at that time, so that if she picked any of the two, the police would know she was either mistaken or she was making a false identification. That would at the very least tell them that she is not dependable in that regard.
Another thing the police should do is to go to the crime scene where she said the shooting occurred and look for blood splatter and blood trails leading from there to where she said she went to the yard of a house to give CPR.
Also, the police should look for the spent cartridge and the bullet that should hit the ground given the shot was fired downward at the baby's face while he was in the stroller. At the downward angle the bullet should exit the baby's head and hit the ground thus making a fresh dent in the ground near where the stroller was.
It's hard for me to believe the shooter would miss the adult head and her big body but was square on in hitting the baby to the face after the struggle with trying to snatch her purse and shooting at her. Why would she endanger herself and her baby by hanging on to her purse?
There are a lot of questions I can't help but to wonder out loud. Obviously, there are many on the internet that had already jumped on the two arrested teenagers and calling for their execution. But, I just want to caution the people to hold their horses because there are still many unanswered questions .... and a general description that fit just about any black teenagers does not a guilty made.
