    GA - Mia Depaillat, 21 mos, dies of abuse, Cumming, 16 April 2004

    In her opening statement (argument) the prosecutor, Sandra Partridge told the jury: "Despite all efforts to try and confuse this jury, the bottom line is children do not die falling down the stairs". (duh)

    In a battle of experts, the jury hung: 11 to 1 for acquittal.

    Kids die from eating marshmallows too fast. Why can't they die falling down the stairs? Brains are delicate. I've learned that from my daughter's accident.

    Gee, I guess all those baby gate companies can close shop since "children don't die falling down stairs". I am pretty sure there are a few coroners who would disagree with her statement.

    It struck me as being so incredibly stupid that I decided to headline it.

    Wudge, yah, it is pretty stupid, figured that's why you headlined it.

    Wudge - I misunderstood when you put (duh) by the comment in your posting. Sorry about that. :-)
