A mother, who got drunk before accidentally smothering her baby and killing him, was ceaselessly mocked by Headline News host Nancy Grace on one of her shows, asking “Did mommy booze it up and kill her baby?” and suggesting she should have been charged with murder.

I hope Nancy Grace is pleased.
Never forget, your words do have an impact on others.
Nancy Grace is a terrible human being.
Okay hold on. Couple of things here.
1. Nancy Grace isn’t a terrible human being, it’s a tv show. Her goal is to be controversial.
2. Words cannot effect other people.
3. The crime of manslaughter makes no sense. The woman made a stupid choice that resulted in something unfortunate but she did not intend on killing the child(so far as I can tell anyways). She is not free from responsibility because she is not punished, the consequences of her actions is that her child is no longer alive and she is the cause.
4. I highly doubt she set herself on fire because of Nancy Grace.
