‘...wasn’t in her right mind’ when found. You have to wonder if she was on drugs, but if you found two of your children dead as the result of your actions, you’d be in profound shock and grief.

"An Indianapolis police report released Tuesday said Edyan Farah, 28, told officers she "was not in her right mind" when she allegedly put her five children in an upstairs closet about 6 a.m. Sunday and placed a large bed in front of the door so they couldn't get out. Police said the closet was about 6 feet long and 18 inches deep. Farah, an immigrant from Somalia, found her 5-year-old daughter, Zuhur, and 3-year-old son, Zakariya, "stiff and unresponsive" when she returned home about 10 1/2 hours later and opened the closet, the report said. She told officers she then carried them downstairs, but did not call 911 or try to revive them, according to the report."

Kids could have died from combined lack of oxygen and carbon dioxide poisoning while imprisoned in that closet. What a horror!

Hussein Adam, a cousin of the children's father, said Monday that the family had emigrated from Somalia about a decade ago.

I'd say possibly the woman was nuts but this may not have come to the attention of school or other authorities because the children were young and she probably lived pretty much within her immigrant community.

The police said this probably was not the first time she had locked the children in the closet (which was 6 feet long by 18 inches wide). What a horrible thing.

The suffocated to death (probably), which is a terrible way to die.

Can you imagine the sounds of the screams that emanated from that closet?

Or. ..in this case; maybe just shock and fear. . .

Can only wonder, was this a 'first time' and what other methods of basic child care did this 'Mother' ascribe to, while raising these children.

It is all too sick and of course; bad actions have bad and often times, tragic consequences.

Yes. I did add emphasis to point out that this particular slime emanated from Slimalia.

Why?
“Farah, an immigrant from Somalia”.
Black female if she couldn’t vote for obammy then I’d bet the farm she supports his sorry marxist ass. Why? Cause still today the vast majority of blacks support him.
Quite obviously she isn’t too smart either.
And I am a Christian, male, former military, white gun owner so I’ve obviously a “racist”.
Get a grip? you’ve gots to be kidding?
Take a look, open your eyes.

I’m not accusing you of anything except being harsh. It isn’t that big a deal. But having said that, I would wager 99.9% of immigrants from all countries, be it 3rd world countries or otherwise, don’t want to see their children die. Especially by their own stupidity. You said “typical” obama immigrant supporter. People died so it kind of calls for some level of sensitivity. And typical immigrants that support obama are not locking their kids in closets, for the most part.

We must be sensitive to others’ cultures because who are we to judge. Maybe she is a mooslim or something? Maybe the kids disrespected the kooran or something? Maybe locking your kids in closets is some sort of growing-up ritual in pile-of-crap-istan? At least, she deserves counseling and understanding. (p.s., I hope there is nothing “harsh” in my especially considerate, sensitive and understanding perspective on this poor woman?)

Hoo-boy. Hilarious. You need to work on your being-facetious chops hal.

Don’t ascribe to me things I don’t say, please. The “Indiana Woman” (misleading title) needs to face the harshest penalty on the books. Futhermore, we should stop all immigration to this country, legal or otherwise in my opinion.

I don’t give a sh!t what they do in crap-hole 3rd world countries. My issue is with another poster that thinks typical obama supporters lock their kids in closets and kill them. Is that what you believe too? I’ve got all day hal.

Looking at your tag line about 4 years ago I told my portfolio manager I thought Westinghouse was a good buy as nuke plant building was going to skyrocket.
She laughed and said Not in America.
I told her the Chi-coms and rest of the world was about to start building em.
Needless to say she didn’t and a boat load of them are now on order.

hey Joe. I've contemplated changing my tagline for awhile now. I've had it since right before gas was at $4 a gallon. The public is asleep on the volatility of oil/energy again so I left it alone.

On the portfolio, I've got 2 words for you: Computer Clouding.

That's the next big technological cash cow. Think STORAGE. Everyone has the new devices, more are coming and the storage and management of information is getting to be more difficult all the time.

It’s gonna cost us a fortune here in Indiana to prosecute her and incarcerate her for many years.

I just with there was a way to deport her immediately.

I saw on the news that the family tried to invoke Shariah law to have the children buried immediately but the coroner said no, there will be a proper autopsy for trial evidence.
