This is so sad. I hope this mother will get her punishment and I hope it is harsh.

The Devil is in the details of this. May have been Meth or Cocaine ? I know a mother in her right mind would never do this. She has danced with the Devil and now she will pay the ultimate price for her deeds. As it should be !!

I just left sitting with my 3 month old grandson when I heard this on the news. I couldn't stop crying.

Her fiance said maybe she was stressed! DUH! She had an 11 mth. old and a 9week old that just goes with the territory! That is NO excuse!!!!!!!!!!:nono:
Many of us have been there and gotten angry and upset but we somehow managed to persevere! This makes me very mad!:mad:

There has never been a parent that didn't, at some point, want to throw their kid across the room. The difference between being a human being and being whatever the hell this woman is is the ability to resist that urge.

It would probably be better off for everyone if the kid just died so the mother would go away forever and the kid wouldn't have to suffer through the horrible life it is inevitably going to have. If your mother is the kind of person that would do this then you're screwed even if somebody competent raises you.

No winners here. Both the child and the family on both sides have to deal with this. The girl should fry.

Can death be a blessing? I dunno. But somehow I feel that I would rather be dead than let this lady raise me as a braindamaged kid. Think she is going to pay $15k to $70k per year on special education after what she did? I don't think so. This whole story makes me sick to my stomach.

Christine Martorana died at 3:28 p.m.
 
A-19-day-old baby, allegedly injured when her mother threw her across the room when she wouldn't quit crying, died this afternoon at a Shreveport hospital.

Christine Martorana died at 3:28 p.m. while on a ventilator at Sutton Children's Hospital, Bossier Parish sheriff's deputies said.

The mother, 19-year-old Michelle Martorana of Princeton, is jailed on charges of battery and cruelty to a juvenile. An autopsy will be done before a decision is made on upgrading charges. The possible charges include first-degree murder.

Bossier sheriff's deputies said Martorana threw her baby across the room at her mobile home this past weekend when the baby wouldn't quit crying. The baby bounced off a bed and landed on her head, suffering a fractured skull, deputies said.

Deputies said Martorana called 911 on Saturday and said her baby had choked on formula. The baby had no heartbeat and was not breathing when medics arrived, deputies said.

May God Bless her Soul.......

Rest in peace little Christine!:pray:

What is real sad here is that if she had murdered this child two months before it would have been called abortion and it would have been legal. Thanks to the democRATS abortion or "choice" is legal today. :nono:

Never had the urge = 1

Texasbelle 09-20-2007 08:32 AM

Never had the urge to throw my infant across the room either. Throwing you across the room Joe though is a whole other story.

1. That's not true.

2. If that were true why would it be sad?
