“What research have you done? Pitbulls are loyal, affectionate, intelligent and are great family dogs. They used to be known as the nanny breed because they're so great with children. It wasn't until the 80's that the drug dealers gave them a bad reputation. Not to mention, pitbulls have not been outlawed in cook county as breed discrimination is illegal in IL.”
“Years ago in my neighborhood, an impoverished man's house caught on fire and he ran back in his completely inflamed home to get his mattresses and some other belongings. The smoke nearly killed him, but it was a risk he was willing to take. There is no way I would watch my home burn with four children inside. I would be burnt to crisp before this happened.”

“I would kill myself in a fire for my pets so I definatly would for my children, the only way I wouldn't be saving them is if I collapsed from the smoke and heat or I died first.”
“I'm wondering if you have issues with your own body, Sydney. Although I do enjoy your remarks about shark teeth and darting eyes, the fat comments are getting old. A little weight on a woman is no harm..”

“I've noticed that too... She's called with Chelsea”
“Law enforcement was under an immense amount pressure to nail someone, anyone, for this crime. Its possible that these men did not even commit this crime despite the alleged confession. All these comments about using tax payers $ is silly. Innocent until proven guilty.”

“I agree that personal experience often results in passion, but it is not a necessity. Did you look at all the causes? I am assuming that Mandy Moore did not lose a family member to malaria and the Gates' Foundation is not based off their own conditions. Why is it so hard to say something decent about a "celeb?"”
“This article was very poorly written. It mentioned Dunn's two children, Jefferson's son and Mr. Garcia's child. First witnesses called the cops for Dunn's children drinking. Then witnesses called to report Jefferson. Both moms were arrested, but only two of the three children were taken to the hospital? Only one picture was shown for an article discussing three parents, so don't be so quick to label them all black women. Also I have no idea why Harry Potter was mentioned. More of a reply to the author then to you, sorry..”

“I agree that it is very strange that there is definitely two different stories here and I can see that they relate in the fact that both are... Neglectful and Abusive parents!! I honestly had to re-read because I thought maybe the man in Florida was married to one of the woman in Conn.. Not so. But I do get the mention of being too young to even appreciate Harry Potter...the writer trying to make a point of How Young the children are.
But even the father in Florida should not be in any less trouble because he didn't directly give the child beer, why was he asleep and his 18 month old child was up and unattended to? Why are there beer can strewn all over his front porch? Would it be safe to assume that the father was asleep and not watching his child properly because he is having too many "Beer Parties?"
Dustyn...you really should be ashamed of yourself...THIS story made the paper, but there are thousands like this that are not reported to the News, white, black, Asian, etc..Abuse and Neglect comes from all races, religions, rich, poor, men and women...Even Teachers, Doctors, Priests and Police officers!! Behind closed doors or obviously right out in a public park!!
Thanks for reading my comment.”
“Why would you put any blame on the parents? 1. They were in NY at the time. 2. Their daughter is an adult. 3. The only one to blame is the perpetrator. Closing down the bar will not bring Lauren back nor will it cease future missing person cases. A frivolous lawsuit is not the answer. Condemning our society will not improve the situation either. Most importantly, I hope this case is solved.”
“75% should be executed? The prisons are overcrowded because of absurd drug laws and unjust mandatory minimums. Considering America's "lock 'em up n throw away the key attitude", I don't think its fair to say that we are more interested in the culprit rather than the victim. Keep in mind that this young lady only lived 3 blocks away from the bar. She has probably walked home alone numerous times and assumed everything would be just fine. Hope for the best and do not criticize her.”
