By now everyone has heard the story of the monster who forgot her 2-year-old was in the car and let the child bake to death for over 8 hours. By now everyone has heard that she is an assistant principal and hopefully everyone has heard that leaving her child in a car apparently was a habit of this horrible person.
Also, I am hoping many are outraged that no charges are filed. Prosecutors and friends have done nothing but make excuses like she was stressed, that she did not mean to kill her child, that this was an accident… And yet a little two-year-old is dead. She died slowly and painfully as the heat slowly and painfully killed her.
Calling this an accident implies that the death could not be prevented, that the circumstances were out of anyone’s control; that this just happened. That is wrong. This could have been prevented if this monster had thought of her kid as she collected the rest of her crap out of her car.
Some have said she is suffering enough. Is she? So that is how it works now? If you feel bad enough then you do not have to be responsible for your actions? Hmmm. Interesting. So if I commit a crime and then feel bad about it, I do not have to answer to it? Can I have that in writing please? We truly do live in a touchy-feel-goodsim liberal world, don’t we?
But alas, here we are with a dead child and a mother who feels bad about it. Are we supposed to accept some of the excuses we hear to justify her deadly mistake? No, because no matter the excuse, the result remains the same.
She was in a rush… Her child is dead
She did not mean to do it… Her Child is dead.
"I know Brenda was stressed because of all the prep work for the first day of school," said their baby sitter… Her child is dead
See, no matter what angle you look at this, the child is dead. Also notice the amount of items she takes from her car. The fact is everything else she had was more important to her than her child. The donuts she bought made it out of the car, her child did not. She killed her child as she ate donuts.
Sad and she deserves to suffer well beyond the crying and guilt she feels. That sort of guilt is enough of a lesson if you step on your child’s toe, but she killed her daughter. She killed her daughter. She killed her daughter. Period.
And the sickest part is, she still has her job as an assistant principal. If she is so careless as to kill her own child, how can a school; trust her with a building full of children?
Charge her, arrest her and imprison her. She killed her daughter. She killed her daughter. She killed her daughter.
