Baby's death marks 2nd time Georgia mom loses a son to violence
CNN ^ | March 23, 2013 | Michael Martinez. Tom Watkins and Nick Valencia

Posted on 03/23/2013 2:28:17 PM PDT by ConservativeStatement

Brunswick, Georgia (CNN) -- The fatal shooting of a 13-month-old boy in his stroller marked the second time mother Sherry West lost a son to violence, she said Saturday.

Her 18-year-old son was stabbed to death in 2008 in New Jersey, she told CNN.

"This is the second child that people have taken from me in a tragic way," West said. "I'm so afraid to have any more babies now. I tried to raise really good kids in a wicked world."

Another article:

Her 18-year-old son, Shaun Glassey, died of stab wounds four years ago. She said he was trying to break up a fight but that his assailants weren’t charged.

The South Jersey Times reported police accounts that said Glassey was among a group of teens that jumped other teens, one of whom defended himself with a steak knife.

West’s first floor apartment is in one of the big houses on Union Street that has been divided into apartments. Many of the houses, however, are big Victorian homes that have been restored or carefully kept up.

Antonio’s father, Louis Santiago, lives diagonally across Union Street from West in another apartment house.

“I’ve lost my boy,’’ Santiago said Friday morning. “They could have just let him live.”

Just read the CNN article attached. The tone is sick. CNN’s two hairs away from blaming her for failing to prosecute after her 1st son was murdered.

I’d like to know exactly what racist egged on this kid to kill a white baby. Why not start with the leader of NOI calling street punks out to teach groups of blacks street fighting against non-blacks so they can own property? Ridiculous ideas are factors all of a sudden!

(imho) there is an undercurrent named the gangster culture. Many of our nation's young have been seduced to mimic this type of culture, and now there is a result from this action by our nation's young.(imho)

No. And the father of her late toddler lives in a nearby apartment.

Brunswick GA is a SMALL peninsula town in far SE GA. The ‘nice’ areas are only a few blocks on the SW of the ‘thumb’.

Brunswick failed as a city shortly after WWII when the shipyard there, which built 99 Victory ships was abruptly closed. About ten square miles of the town is housing built in that era populated with several generations of black ‘families’ living off subsidies, handouts and menial labor. I have done a lot of faith-based rehabilitation construction in that very part of town.

There are houses there with multiple generations housed there with no recognizable traditional family structure.

Recently the neighborhood mix has been shifted by marginally better off Hispanics moving in. The traditional residents have not always reacted well. The small pocket of BEAUTIFUL but dilapidated Victorian homes is mostly owned by gentrifiying whites who didn’t buy on nearby St Simons Island.

*IF* everyone in this story had been raised in a moral intact family the outcomes would likely be different.

So yes, it does matter in a way.

I notice how the media keeps turning this story to focus on the poor mother rather than on the thug perpetrator[s] whose aunt now is coming forth to provide an alibi for him.

I hope the police publically invite her to come down to the station to make a sworn statement and sign an affidavit if she is really sure about that grits breakfast — put up or shut up.

I’ve got some inner city relatives and their lives are a mess. One cousin killed, another shot and the son of the murdered cousin in prison for double murder. It goes on and on. They won’t leave because the democrats are “taking care of them” and in their eyes, republicans only offer punishment.

Sometimes the 9 months carry is offset by a lifetime of Govt money and benefits.

Also, when I saw her ‘interview’ the other day I had the same gut feeling I had when Susan Smith tearfully ‘blamed’ a ‘couple of black guys’...

Admittedly, by nature, I am cynical but something just doesn’t/didn’t pass the ‘smell test’ here - As far as I am concerned.

Sorry to hear that creek. I assure you I too have my troubles with some relatives. The troubles serve as a reminder of what is presently in the present and what is coming in the future. Prayers to be wrong about the future.

Once people become comfortable in their thoughts of being taken care of, it is most difficult if not impossible to jolt them back into the reality of where they are and what they are missing by taking responsibility for themselves and theirs. Many simply appear scared to be responsible for themselves and theirs after having lived in their loss of their self-respect for themselves and others. Is truly sad for them and their offspring.

Best Wishes creek for all of us, and prayers up creek, may God Be Merciful.

Good points.

People like this woman attract trouble.

May God bless the innocent little boy.

If we could start producing some real jobs we might be surprised at how many choose to leave the plantation on their own. I know when John Engler was governor here in Michigan I saw a lot of people I never expected to see ditching the plantation and going to work.

When TSHTF they will have no sympathy or help from me. In fact. I’ll relish their suffering. Only the little children will receive any sympathy.

What is amazing to me is that even FoxNews cable is getting all lathered up on the murder of the Colorado prison official by a white supremicist (who died from his wounds after a car crash and shooting by cops) and is saying nothing about the murder of a white baby by two feral black teens in Georgia.

Married mothers also take their kids out in strollers without the company of their husbands. She was in the wrong place at the wrong time and the poor child lost his life because of that.

If I were able to figure out people I would be a very rich man.
I was one of the skeptics who said cutting off benefits to new borns wouldn’t matter. It seems when jurisdictions stopped giving instant benefits to new borns, the ‘illegal’ birth rate went down, or at least slowed down for a bit.

Run unemployment benefits to the breaking point (for the working public) THEN replace it with SSI benefits to 25 year olds for being ‘stressed’ because they have to get up and go to work everyday or are ‘unable to work’ because of an addiction to drugs and/or alcohol?

Why would someone with 100 pounds of coke/pot/meth etc run a red light, drive a stolen car without a license and speed past a cop sitting on the side of the road?

One story had the ‘guy’ shooting her in the leg, the ‘interview’ I saw had her saying the guy shot her in the ear, grazing it then he shot the baby in the stroller in the face.

Something just doesn’t sound logical here... AND I am giving her the ‘benefit of a doubt’ of a very non reliable media.

Shooting a baby in a stroller. Doesn’t get much more depraved than that, unless you are an abortion doctor, politician, or judge. Poor teenagers. If they wanted to kill babies, they should haves finnished school first, became doctors. Then they could legally do it all day long and make big bucks too.
