Dad does this, and he gets the 'hot shot' for being a monster...

Mom does it, and she'll get counseling for being an emotionally scarred woman..

Yeah, men and women are not treated the same, and there is one sex that should be very happy for that.

Family members say Talae Thomas, a 30-year-old Plant City resident, loved her son Chase very much.

Loved him to death.

Holder will get her off in compliance with Obama’s belief that a live baby can be killed if it was the intent of the mother to abort. I just don’t know what the time limit is 3 weeks, five weeks, whatever.

If that's love, I'd hate to see what hate is.

I guess the commie lib ‘RATS will say she had a “choice” whether to raise the child or drown him for being “the devil”. This country sure has gone to hell. “Choice” sure is racking up a body count.

"Talae Thomas,... her son, Chase Harrison."

Lack of father, lack of family, lack of civility. The chain is too often the same.

There was that Andrea Yates a few years ago who drowned her 5 kids in a bathtub and instead of the chair, she got a non-guilty verdict due to postpartum and a long stay in the loony bin. Disgusting.

Under Peter Singer, Van Jones, etc it's two years.

“Thomas’ family said she suffered a breakdown four years ago and has hallucinations.”

Something tells me this child also has no father at home. And if the family already knew she had problems, why in the world was she allowed to be the primary care-taker of this child? Was she on medication? Her current conditions had to be worsened by postpartum depression.

This is very sad.

Umm, how is this any different from abortion ? Somebody call her and suggest that she call Planned Parenthood and they'll have her back home in no time. She have any more she has tired of or may think they are the devil ?

Confusing ........ it's ok to kill when they are 5 days old ( in the womb ). It's ok to kill them when they are all born except for the very tip of there little heads still in the, well , let's call it a birth canal. Why is it not ok to kill them at 5 weeks after being born ? Or 5 years ? Or 10 years ? Those damned liberals make even black or white so confusing .........
It's HER body , the child came from HER body , the child is a part of HER body. She can do whatever she wants with HER body and all parts and aspects of it. What's wrong with you people ? ! Don't make me call YOUR mother !

How long before we reinvent a Late Term Abortion, (or Flukeing your own Baby) to mean one year after birth?

I am beginning to believe that a great many women are mutating into ghouls.. Geeze

I wonder if she follows one of those bastardised Haitian religions which mixes a little voodoo with a little Christianity, some of this, a pinch of that.

Huh? Crystal meth is a stimulant that depresses the appetite. No tweaker with mental issues weighs 281 pounds and is 5’9” tall.

My best guess, she’s just plain nuts, no drugs needed to achieve that designation for her.

Seen some seriously big, as in fat, tweekers. They drink a lot of beer, though. And tweeking off and on can lead to binge eating at times. The body doesn’t know WTF is going on, retains weight.
