    SMH I'm speechless.
    "a 19-year-old woman who may have witnessed the week-ago killing was found dead Saturday evening. They believe that was the event that may have touched off a retaliatory home invasion leading to the baby’s death. “It’s complicated,” said DeKalb Police Chief Cedric Alexander as he explained the violent timeline. “It’s insane. It’s insane.”"

    *May 3rd, 29 year old killed.
    *Possible witness, female age 19, killed- approx may 9th/10th.
    *In possible retaliation, on Saturday, May 10th, four men/teens storm a house shooting and kill 9 month old and wound three women.

    Oh BTW, Police do say that the drive by shooting that left two dead and three wounded also Saturday night was not related to this crime spree.

    Wtf

    Just awful, awful, awful. How is the world (or the US) raising such morally vacuous people?

    I watched their faces on the news tonight, a 16 year old and 19 year old who also killed someone last weekend and I wondered what makes a person lose their soul like that. Makes them able to take a life, on purpose, then do it again. Don't tell me they were or were not abused (I was. I never hurt anyone) Don't tell me the drugs made them do it. (I used drugs for decades. Never hurt anyone) Don't tell me they have been treated unfairly by society or were foster kids (I'm a foster mom. My kids are the best, most loving you could ever meet) No one is born a killer. What creates one?

    Most likely no one is raising these kids properly.

    This is just sickening and sad.

    We have a similar horrific case in Australia.

    Ten-month-old Zayden was found bludgeoned to death in his cot by his mother in their Long Gully home on June 15, 2012.

    Ms Williams said the fact Zayden sustained at least 25 injuries to his face, eight to his scalp and fractures to his clavicle and rib, and that a weapon was used, suggest “the prisoner was intending to kill Zayden as opposed to cause him really serious injury’’.
    “The circumstances in general … of the killing of 10-month-old Zayden we say are such that would shock the conscience of ordinary right minded people,’’ Ms Williams

    Devin Thomas, 18, and Marco Watson, 36, were arrested for the baby’s death and for shooting his grandmother, Tracy Smith; his mother, Tanika Smith; and her best friend in a home invasion on May 10 on Lani Farm Road in Stone Mountain.
