Sister Of Baby Shot In The Head In Georgia Questions Her Mother's Story [Video]

Child's mother, Sherry West.
Now... I tried my best to word my original post on this story to NOT seem callous towards a mother that just lost her 2nd child to violence.  Especially because the last child she recently lost was only a BABY!!  But to me, the story just did not sit right.  From the article I read on Huffington Post, neighbors say that the event was really unusual for their quiet neighborhood.  While taking her baby on a stroll in the neighborhood, these random teenagers approach the mother with her child and asks for money.  When she doesn't give up any money because she has none, which I think is very apparent by the looks of her, ('though they can be deceiving), these kids shoot her twice: A superficial wound to the ear and a shot to her leg... The one person that could surely identify the perpetrators... Left alive and well.  Yet, they shoot an innocent baby, point-blank range, directly in the head.  A baby.  Just didn't seem right to me.

Neither did her statements such as: 
"He asked me for money and I said I didn't have it," she said. "When you have a baby, you spend all your money on babies. They're expensive. And he kept asking and I just said `I don't have it.' And he said, `Do you want me to kill your baby?' And I said, `No, don't kill my baby!'"

So, these strange kids roll up on you stickup-style, asks for money and this is your thoughts:
 "When you have a baby, you spend all your money on babies. They're expensive."


And how about the fact that she is the ONLY witness to the crime?  This wouldn't be too odd, except for the fact that this happened in what everyone has said is a decent area.  And that most likely means the folks in the area aren't used to this type of thing.  I could imagine that when the gunshots were heard by the neighbors, a few (if not all) ran to a window to see just WTF was going on.  In those areas where gunshots are the norm, this may not happen.  But in a decent neighborhood... C'mon, now!  And ain't one person catch sight of nobody running away or nothing?!!

And now there is the mother's own child; a 15 year old daughter, saying that her manic-depressive mom's story is a lil off and she seems to be a bit too concerned about the insurance check for that poor little baby boy's untimely death.  Check out this short news clip:

In my mind it's unfathomable that a MOTHER would ever do ANYTHING to harm their child.  As the person that gave the child LIFE, it just makes no sense to invest so much into creating and birthing and loving and caring for this person just to mistreat him/her (in any form or fashion).  But that's just my thoughts.  No one really knows what this mother's thoughts may be (or have been).

And I believe there are at least two teens sitting in jail right now behind this case.  I am hoping that the judicial system doesn't fail anyone.  Whomever is guilty of such a heinous act, deserves all the punishment this Earth can possibly dish 'em for at least two lifetimes.
