Since when has a 23 year old classed as a minor.
Lock her up and throw away the key.
Remember people if you even think that a child being abused ring children's services. You may think it might be nothing much. But you can never know whats going on behind doors.

yes. She sounds like an antisocial personality disorder. She also became a parent against her will at 17 and lost her own mother at the same time.

Their mother should share the blame.   She abandoned those children.  She should have taken them with her.  They  were her responsibility.  Both of them were her responsibility.
A 17 year old is still a child, too, and should not have been given  responsibly  for her mothers child.

What's so spectaular about Cheetos that makes folks beat others and kill their besties, I stopped eating the orange cheese snacks decades ago.Did they enhance the recipe of the snack food. On another note when illegals are deported they should have to take their children with them, they place an undue burden on taxpayers. I wish the little girl pulls through and is placed in a home where she'll be loved and wanted

I agree, I wondered the same thing. People are so scared to get involved or speak up, but they dont realize it could save a childs life!!!!!! They just want to ignore and pretend it isnt happening and turn a blind eye, but they need to wake up and get involved!

Worse than the neighbors, the school counselors knew too. The reporter said to the CPS worker that school counselors knew too. Really? They are bound by law to report suspectd child abuse to the POLICE and CPS. I'm a nurse and we in the medical field are bound by that same law. This is a huge lapse of common sense and ethics amongst these so called "counselors".

I read another article that said the school DID notify CPS. CPS says they never received a report. Who really knows who is being truthful. The girl fell through the cracks and no one was there for her. Now she is depressed, wants to kill herself and in foster care. The older sister that was forced to take care of her sister and has no feelings of love only rage is going to jail. As she should.

Tragic..

All kidding aside. Deby Mejia is someone with serious issues. After having had her little sister for thirteen years, one might safely believe she would have adjusted by this time.

Still, consider this...Perhaps the truer resentment reared its ugly head, when Mama Mejia flew the coop to Honduras, in 2006. Deby was 17-years-old at the time, making her younger sibling only 4-years-old. It was a most difficult age for Deby, and caring for a toddler must have been an enormous burden on her. While her friends were hanging out, Deby may have been home, seeing her sis through a bout with the flu.

It frustrates me, the article does not mention their father. Where is HE, through all this? It appears BOTH parents have flown the coop.

In the meantime, I pray to our Lord, Deby receives the help she and her baby sister so obviously need. I was a single mother, too. I remember so clearly the difficulties I endured, especially when there was no family or friends in sight.

The most reassuring words I can offer Deby are, "And this too, shall pass." Hang in there, sweetie. Take whatever help you require, especially psychotherapy, both for your own sake and that of your sister.

Pray to our Lord, hold on tight to Him and NEVER let go! Remember, it was He who first promised NEVER to leave or forsake US! And, HE NEVER breaks His Word!

God bless you both, honey.

This girl beat her sister to unconsciousness. Im not saying she didnt have it rough, but this is unbelievably cruel. Resentment or not, thats a child she was whipping with an extension cord, and whose head she was banging on the floor. And the mother did not "Fly the coop" she was deported. I had my son at 18, one year older then she was when she had to take care of her sister, and I have certainly never beat my child. It seems your pep talk came too late my friend, this girl deserves some kind of punishment.

"Flew the coop?" The mother was deported in 2006 according to the article. That means the US government broke the family up. Need to make those baggers happy, don't we?

Deby Mejia, of Houston, TX and David Scott, of St. Louis, MO have something very odd in common. They are both "Cheetos" fanatics.

On September 5th of this year, David Scott was charged with the stabbing murder of his friend, Roger Wilkes. Scott's motive, was the bag of "Cheetos" Wilkes was munching on.

On October 11th, Deby Mejia was charged with child abuse and jailed, for the beating into unconsciousness of her 10-year-old sister. Her motive? Lil' sis, was also munching on a bag of "Cheetos".

Mejia's only statement to authorities as to why she beat her sister with an extension cord was she, 'always resented her for being born and never loved her.'

Could the preservatives they put in "Cheetos" cause certain individuals to run amok? I have never heard of pretzels or potato chips causing violence in others.

Perhaps, Mejia and Scott are both victims of some obscure phobia, which reacts violently to the vivid color of this cheddary treat. One attack, I might be able to understand. But, two?? It is downright spooky! Why, it almost makes me want to forego junk food altogether! I said, 'ALMOST"!!

Nah! I could never abstain. I love my bedtime "CHEEZ DOODLES", far too much!

Ut Oh...I forsee a lawsuit in the making.
~~ Cheetos... So far as we can tell, appear to have some kind of diverse reaction that causes random everyday normal people to become enraged with hatred. Scientists think that they have stumbled upon the reason.....`Uhm Uhh, It appears that the puffiness of this corn based glow in the dark cheese product when ingested along with certain anti-depressants, we will not name names at this moment, appears to have an adverse reaction other than the one that was initially intended such as pleasure and delight. We, your scientists, are urging the FDA and the makers of Cheetos to begin putting a warning label on this product. Do with this information as you will. We, collectively, are merely scientists ya know.
Good Luck and uhh nevermind... ~~

I'm reading the comments on here and it's just sickening what people are writing. What does the government have to do at all with what happened to this child? It's child abuse people, regardless of who's president and who is illegal and legal to be in this country. It's a 10 year old child who has probably been beaten quite a few times by this pathetic waste of air. I hope the older one gets what's coming to her and the little girl can hopefully finally get to live a life of normalcy finally.

I'm not sure what you're griping about: Most of us presume that the government has a whole lot to do with punishing abusers and caring for unwanted children.
10:17 AM on 11/12/2012
If you had read my comment thoroughly, I specified that people were blaming her being abused on Obama being the president and she is probably in this country illegally. That's what my gripe was about.
01:26 PM on 11/09/2012
Any wonder how Obama got elected?
04:16 PM on 11/09/2012
Obama got elected because his policies were better that the GOPs. You however are the perfect example of the type of mentality that would abuse someone over a bag of junkfood, and vote for Romney.

Well said. I can see that he got elected by the ignorant Democrats whose only concern is that they wont have to get a job and can live another 4 years on welfare. Sad state this country is now. We are sinking fast because of being in welfare state. Romney hit the nail on the head. 47% lazy fools who were born into welfare and hope to die on welfare. God forbid they would have to work!

Please just change the channel on your TV. You will feel so much better. And that 47% you speak of includes soldiers, retired senior citizens, individuals who make minimum wage - hardly lazy fools.

Actually i work with a ton of "lazy" democrats who work 60 or more hours almost every week, most for over 20 years at the same place. Im not sure how anybody could consider them lazy, but you my friend are very VERY ignorant.

those were special Cheetos, handmade by the Cheeto tiger, with special tiger sauce.
Perhaps a jail term served only cheetos and tomato juice should be considered
