    TRIGGS- another sad story

    I'm debating whether or not I want to open/read the article...I have no idea what it's about, other than you said it is sad. I just don't want it to ruin my weekend; I've read some really sad articles lately :(

    You probably shouldn't read it then...

    Wow, the fact that this father has any right at all to make decisions on the part of his daughter after what happened is almost as appauling as what happened in the first place. Ok, it's not at all, but what an injustice on the part of the legal system. Maybe I am just not very hormonal today or something, but it also kinda saddens me that I am more shocked by the legal side of the story than the actual violent incident itself... this is a story that just happens way too often when it shouldn't happen at all :(

    Don't read it if you are easily hurt. I had to stop half way through. At least we can hope Ohio will change there laws for the better because of his little girl.

    The poor little girl. I cannot believe you can lose your temper to that extent with a child. So sad, poor thing.

    Heart breaking on all counts!!! My opinion at this point doesn't matter...that poor baby - it breaks my heart thinking of what he did to her....

    Uggg. this makes me sick!!! If he did shake this baby and cause her brain damage then he desserves what ever is coming to him!!!
    fotogirl525 replied to cheeezie25's response:
    I agree with you 100%. I am so angry at the justice system, sometimes it cares too much about parental rights, This so called father should have no say in the decision on this little baby's life. The ONLY reason he wants her to stay on life support is so he won't face murder charges. Horrible.
