Let the punishment fit the crime!
‘...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!
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.
Can you imagine the sounds of the screams that emanated from that closet?
“placed a large bed in front of the door so they couldn’t escape, a police report says”
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.
More third world slime littering our nation with their filthy habits. Don’t we have enough trouble with our own slime?
Yes. I did add emphasis to point out that this particular slime emanated from Slimalia.
Typical immigrant obammy voter?
that’s a stupid thing to say. Get a grip.
“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.
Yes, but all cultures are equal with the muzzie culture even more equal than others.
Let’s see..... the only people I have heard of who go ‘visit the neighbor’ for TEN HOURS are crack and meth addicts.
