http://www.gadailynews.com/news/crime/144866-florida-teen-cassidy-goodison-14-charged-with-first-degree-murder-after-she-strangles-newborn-baby.html

basically a 14 year old girl [in Florida, of course] hid she was pregnant from her parents and gave birth to the kid in their bathroom using a pair of scissors. she strangled the baby on the spot and for some reason kept it in a shoebox in her room instead of chucking it out somewhere.

she's being tried as an adult, but I can't help but feel bad for her. she must have been raised in a really religious household, and was conditioned to feel like this was the best course of action.

The kid's 14, there is absolutely no reason why she should be tried as an adult when she clearly isn't one.

She should, anyone over the age of 12 has the maturity to differentiate between right and wrong.

No. 14 year olds lack many cognitive abilities that adults do have, simply because their brain hasn't fully developed yet. They are quite literally not mature enough to be held fully responsible for their actions.

No. If you're going to give them a life sentence, you may as well sentence them to death.

How is a 14 year old girl able to hide pregnancy from her parents

It happens more often than you'd think. Sometimes the pregnancy is barely visible on the outside, and can easily be covered up by baggy clothes or saying that she's gained some weight. This fenomenom actually seems to be influenced by the woman's psychological stance towards the pregnancy, which basically means that if she has a strong desire to not be pregnant, her body will 'act' like she isn't.

It doesn't have to be. It could be very cheap. Just saying.

Pretty sure they've already had big cases on this years ago and decided minors shouldn't be given life sentences

I fundamentally disagree. If you don't have the full rights of an adult, you shouldn't be held to the same standards. She should be given a juvenile punishment IMO.

But really, all of-age, anti-sex education Republicans deserve to be found guilty of and publicly hanged for this crime. BECAUSE THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS.

No, minors can still get life sentences if they're tried for first degree murder and as an adult like the case in the OP IIRC

Not a life sentence, but she did something pretty horrific.

this kind of behavior is totally reprehensible there is absolutely no excuse for it, and if her parents were true "Christians" they would have regarded that innocent child's life as sacred.

Why is the first reaction always to blame the parents or society or anything else

Keeping a dead baby in a shoebox and taking loads inside at age 13. Personal responsibility has to start somewhere. At age 13 you'd know keeping a dead squirrel in a shoebox is probably a bad idea. I mean, way to B-Line right past what she actually took the time to plan and do and immediately consider it a societal issue.

Retarded girl, retarded guy who judged the retarded girl as a good place to store his jizz, retarded parents who didn't realize their daughter had a full scale baby bump and suddenly lost like 35 pounds in a day.

The baby was probably happy to be strangled with the genetics of that parentage. Now let's strangle the rest of them before they multiply again.

She sounds like she was scared and confused. No, she does not deserve a life sentence, sounds like she needs therapy.

I can imagine myself as a fourteen year old girl doing that. I definitely wouldn't kill the baby, but it's not too difficult to imagine being so ashamed that she would do something like that. I doubt the shoebox thing is the result of a 'I'm crazy so I kill things and put shove them into boxes' mentality either; she probably just didn't know of a way to dispose of the body (not saying that the shoebox method is the smartest idea).

My point is that yeah, it was a bad thing to do, but I don't think she's some cold-blooded murderer based on the article like people in the thread seem to think and I don't think she should have been tried as an adult. The sentence she got was way more appropriate than a life sentence.

Edit: Okay, it pretty much was 'cold-blooded murderer', but I don't think she was thinking to herself, "I feel no pressure to hide this so I'm just going to kill the baby for fun".
