Daily News ^ | 05/20/11

Posted on 05/20/2011 6:56:16 AM PDT by AtlasStalled

A Texas teen mom could face life behind bars after she was caught on camera trying to smother her baby with a blanket and her hands.

Shantaniqua Nykole Scott, 18, of Waco was convicted Thursday of injury to a child. She previously told authorities that she couldn't handle the stress of being a single, unemployed mom and wanted the 4-month-old "out of my life."

She could have dropped the baby off at a fire station with no questions asked, under Texas law.

Should have killed it when it was still in the womb and she would be walking free. Unbelievable where this country has evolved ...

And, there are how many couples out there who would gladly adopt, love and cherish a baby? Did no one speak to this woman about adoption? Did no one tell her just how difficult it is to be a single mom?

There was a foolproof way to prevent that, but I guess we can't expect people who are taught that they are just "lucky animals" to control their breeding habits.

There is no moral difference between killing it before it’s born and after, look for more of this to start happening and then be accepted.

I guess she couldn't handle the stress of keeping her knees together either. Now she gets three hots and a cot at our expense, perfect.

4 and a half months earlier they could have pulled the baby half-way out feet first and sucked it’s brain out (before the child came ALL THE WAY out), and she would be free as a bird

Shantaniqua

I have a friend who's a teacher in an inner city school. She had a student who's name she couldn't pronounce.

It was spelled La-a

Finally another student came up to her & gave her the correct pronunciation....

La DASH A

Purple hair, strange name. Her name could be Mayflower if her mama saw a moving van outside her hospital window. Wonder what her husband has to say about this?

“Shantaniqua?.....Is that Irish?”

...it’s the name of a great lost Indian tribe. The “Shantaniquas” have long since vanished. In their burial ground lies only the remains of gold teeth, 10k gold necklaces bearing dollar signs and primitive 70” flat screen televisions.

This is a very young and immature child who has been raised in a culture of death. It was all right to murder the child 8 months ago because mom did not want to be burdened but not after the baby is born.

The one eyed hypnotist and the main stream media that runs it have contributed as well. Satan is behind it all and we will reap what we have sown.

I feel a little sorry for her, not for her terrible actions but for the fact that she was raised in a culture that places no value on human life just as the muslims do. I pray that she is able to have a relationship with the Saviour.

“She could have dropped the baby off at a fire station with no questions asked, under Texas law.”

I know mothers who said they would throw their children off a bridge rather than give them to someone else to raise. The maternal instinct can be a very strange thing sometimes. They can kill it with abortion but it would be cruel to give it up for adoption.

Statement from her sleazy defense lawyer David Jones:

“She had no business having a baby at her age,” he told the courtroom. “But what were the injuries? You didn’t hear of any injuries.”

So because she is young and didn’t get to finish the job of killing her baby because hospital staff intervened, no big deal. She is innocent. Let her go.

There has certainly got to be an especially hot place in Hell for defense attorney who condone child abuse and murder.

Defense attorney David Jones argued Scott did not cause any serious injuries to her son.

"She had no business having a baby at her age," he told the courtroom. "But what were the injuries? You didn't hear of any injuries."

The baby didn't die, so there were no injuries!!! He's definitely part of the 99% of attorneys who give the rest a bad name!!!

Neekie is stupid and maladjusted, a sociopath

Her child will struggle all his life for not being able to hate her

Someone else will raise him, then Neekie will bawl and want to be part of his life, expecially if he gets money

That’s the way it goes, sometimes :-(

Her efforts at eliminating an unwanted child are 13 months too late! To have that child totally, cleanly, legally and morally out of her life, she SHOULD HAVE kept “Tyrone” out of her PANTS! Additionally, I’m sure there are fine and good people waiting in line to adopt her child. It is NOT necessary to snuff him.

And - In nine months she’ll probably have another one. She is part of the entitlement mentality...have a kid, get $$$ from the governmnet and you never have to work. But, having a baby comes with some responsabilities and this Sha-na-na (or whatever that stupid name is), teen girl couldn’t bear the effort of even caring for a child in order to get her “paycheck” from Uncle Sam. It won’t be long before some other guy will come along and she will resume her sexual activities and bring another unwanted baby with no father present into the world for the taxpayers to pay for. It is all part of their lifestyle.
