Baby Sophia Acosta was brutally tortured, sexually abused, and finally murdered at the hands of her mother's boyfriend (allegedly.. have to say that until court is over) Christopher Cheary. Sophia's mother Erika Smith, did nothing to stop it.

Just horrible :( People who do those things have no right to breathe!! But, we send em to prison, where they get a bed and 3 meals a day. It's so wrong. Let's go back to the days of NO BEDS and bread and water for prisoners. They are CRIMINALS for crying out loud! Violent criminals should have no rights, especially if they've taken a life. What about the victim's rights?? Signed and noted.

Any mother ,who does nothing to help her child or children when they are in a dangerous situation ,such as these little ones have been in ,does not deserve having them ,human mothers like animal mothers will fight to the death to protect them,and most children -know that ,in the animal kingdom the mother has to protect her babies against a male who wants to mate with her as he kills them because he wants her to have his offspring,the same in humans ,no other man -there are excerptions ,really wants another mans child -sad but true.-sorry I couldn't sign as the petition is for Americans only.

Jennifer B.--At least, if Mr."allegedly" is convicted and sentenced to a prison, we know he'll get what he deserves.
Hardened criminals--murderers, serial killers, even rapists of adult women--hold a speciazl hatred for basby rapers and killers.

I also hope the mother gets charged as an accessary.

The mother is in charge of who is around her child. She should get whacked over the head.

Thanks Simone for this petition. I sometimes think that the decision to put children who have been through trauma, into STATE care, is totally CRUEL!! How CAN any sane human being think that it is right to take a chld and put them into a strange situation, when there is NORMAL family memember that can care for them. it is at that time that children desperately need to feel as much NORMALITY as possible and to be surrounded by people that they know and trust. Time and time again, children are not allowed to go to loving familiar family or friends and are put by well-meaning, but totally ignorant. into the worst possible situation for the child. I am sure that some people in the human services have absolutely NO idea about the needs of children, except what they have reading a book! For the poor little darling girl who was murdered, we feel grief, but for her sister needs to be in the most stable and loving environment that is available and that is most likely not with strangers!
