Unfortunately, there are many people out there like "the truth" who, after the evidence is placed before them, still believe the monster is innocent. And ofcourse, try to place the blame on anyone they can. I have no sympathy for someone like this or their supporters. Why would anyone make up a story about their child saying someone shook them, it's going to make them look bad as well. Just so you know, you don't get paid by the state for adopting and you don't get paid for donating organs. Obviously YOU are not a caring person to be questioning why she would adopt this baby. Hmmm, let's see, oh I know! People adopt because they love children, and in this case, bonded with the child. You are a moron. Maybe you should've tried quoting God's word to the monster before this happened.

The whole story and truth did not come out at the trial.Tim Harris and his cronies do not want you to know the truth about the Burgess family.To bad Grandpa Burgess.was dead and could not testify.Grandpa had broken Jace's toe and slapped him in the face weeks before the accident.Leslie and her sister Stacy were at Grandpa Burgess house doing their laundry the day of the accident.When Leslie brought Jace home he was sick and crying, Leslie told Cody she would give Jace a bath and put him in bed and go to work.Leslie made up the Cody shakes me crap at the hospital the next morning to save her own ass from jail.Sister Stacy had a DHS file on Cody in April of 2010 (Stacy works for DHS) Leslie did not think Cody's past was a problem.Leslie cherry picked Cody off the internet from some dating site for here scam (LIFE INSURANCE/DONATIONS/ORGAN FEES)Why would a 24yr old single woman adopt a special needs baby? Leslie had to care for special needs babys all day long at her work.I guess the $2500.00 + a month Leslie received in aid from DHS probably helped! Most baby's in Jace's medical condition never make it to 3yrs old. Jace had 13 doctors treating him for all kinds of medical problems.The Burgess family have been crying all the way to the bank! I hope you all had fun on your cruise! Payed for with donation money! I hope Leslie's new baby make it to 3yrs old and Leslie don't get tired of the new baby like she did with Jace! God Knows What Happened! VENGEANCE IS MINE SAYTH THE LORD!

The judges need to quit 'feeling sorry' for these offenders that harm our children. They need to be sympathetic to our kids, they dont 'bounce' back from everything! They will ALWAYS remember everything that was done to them! Show some compassion for our children, the INNOCENT VICTIMS!!! The abuser are old enough to know right from wrong! I say an eye for an eye!!

Again....what the hell is wrong with these judges recommending parole for these idiots who kill kids? Makes me physically sick...this will continue until some judge grows some balls and starts sentencing these pieces of human slime to either death or life without the possibility of parole. Lets see what that girl who "pushed" her husband out the window you money it won't include parole.
