Did Georgia Mother (Sherry West) Shoot Her Own Baby in the Face for Insurance Money? Daughter says Maybe...

BRUNSWICK, Ga. -- As the investigation into the shooting death of a 13-month-old Brunswick toddler continues, some people are beginning to question the mother who's child was shot and killed during a morning walk.

The daughter of Sherry West, Ashley Glassey, said she does not want to falsely accuse anyone but she wants the truth.

Glassey, 21, lives in New Jersey and said her mother lost custody of her when she was 8. She said she has forgiven her mom and has spoken to her every day since Thursday's shooting but said some of her mother's responses have her concerned.

Glassey said she started to have her doubts after receiving a phone call from her mother telling her that her brother, Antonio Santiago, had been killed. She claims the night of the shooting her mother asked, "How soon do you think life insurance policy will send me a check?"

I knew it!  I felt bad and didn't want to say anything before but the story with the kids and no witnesses....didn't feel right from the start.  I thought I was being too judgmental in thinking that it was the mom and had hoped that for once I was wrong in my thinking that a parent could do such a thing.  I would of thrown myself in front of the bullet if someone was threatening violence to anyone I loved.

Ring ... ring ... ring ... "Good afternoon, Liberty National Life Insurance, how may I help you?"

"Uhhh, my baby was shot in the face and killed yesterday.  When can I get a check?"

Something doesn't sound right about this.  I won't be the least bit surprised if it turns out that this is just another case of some white trash murderer letting a random black kid take a fall.  I'm not entirely up on this story, but I haven't yet heard anything about ballistics matching up the bullet with the alleged weapon recovered from the pond.

Well, the murder weapon was found based on evidence provided by the suspect's mother and aunt.

A cartoon provides a clear understanding of government efficiency, an oxymoron for all time!.

Zero Tolerance for Violence Against Women and Children!

Sounds reasonable to me and I am sure that many in the U.S. agree and that it is a position that transcends political affiliation, socio-economic positioning, race, gender, age and various other demographic divisions in the country.

Ray Rice, Ray MacDonald, Greg Hardy, Chris Brown, Charlie Sheen, Sean Penn Steven Seagall, Judge Mark Fuller, …the list goes on and on.  The famous people of sports, movies, music, television, politics, etc are center front page news in this and other situations. 

Domestic abuse and child abuse are pervasive cancers in our society and zero tolerance is indeed the only acceptable standard.

Should Ray Rice, Greg Hardy, Ray MacDonald be banned for life from playing in the NFL?

Should employers in other private sector industries be able to fire and “ban for life” truck drivers, doctors, nurses, teachers, actors, singers, carpenters, accountants, politicians when they are convicted of domestic abuse? 

Many will say to the first question and resounding no to the second.

What penalties should be imposed by employers when a person is arrested for and admits to domestic or child abuse and avoids punishment through pre-trial diversion programs?  Should those abusers also be banned from their field of employment…..for life….for a shorter period of time?

Should people who choose a profession that puts them in the public eye not be afforded the equal protection aspects of our laws and rules and be treated differently, more harshly than “regular” citizens?
