SAN FRANCISCO - The Coast Guard resumed searching for two missing children Thursday, a day after their mother allegedly threw them into San Francisco Bay near Fishermen's Wharf. The body of a third sibling was recovered.

ADVERTISEMENT

The mother, Lashaun Harris, 23, of Oakland, was booked on three counts of murder, the San Francisco Chronicle reported Thursday. Her children were identified as Trayshaun Harris, 6, Travante Greely, 3, and Joshua Harris, 1.

Dude. She threw a bunch of infants into SF bay. Did she expect them to swim back to shore, or have sea lions rescue them from a certain death by drowning? Come on.

Sorry, but I don't see the problem with being accurate in posting this article. Do you?

She certainly killed her kids, but she didn't drown them.

Allowing them to drown is the same thing as drowning them.

It didn't say her children died from their impact on the water either, the most common cause of death from a leap off the Golden Gate Bridge, even though fully-grown adults have been known to survive that.

Her intent was for them to die by drowning. She didn't have to hold them underwater, only knowingly put them in harm's way. That's my moral read on it.

I can't believe we even have to discuss this. The washing machine treatment Kaz proposed even seems somewhat light to me for 3 counts of what should be murder one infanticide in my book.

Indeed.

Well, the definition of 'drown' is in conflict with your moral read. The children drowned because of the mother's actions and yes, it sounds like she should be charged with three counts of murder. But she did not drown them.

Ok. She tossed them into the ocean, thus causing them to be drowned.

End of story.

No, it's not just you. Personally I'm waiting for the first "Make her die a slow and painful death!!!" replies and the name-calling aimed at anti-death penalty folks like me.

Per some news reports, this woman apparently has had serious mental health problems and was under medication. I do hope she is incarcerated for the rest of her life with no parole and gets mental health treatment.

No, she tossed them into the ocean, thus causing them to drown.

As a wannabe lawyer, you should recognize the distinction.

Sorry, but common logic would dictate that one first understand what the word means. Once you familiarize yourself with the English language, I'll welcome your input.

Perhaps using your brain to determine the fact that I am not referring to the new common logic standards would be a good idea. In the context where I use it, I am referring to logic of the common populace -- the same group of people who make up juries.

Let's just say this woman dropped her children off a 50 story building. According to your misguided thinking, she's only guilty of dropping them, not killing them. Ya, that makes sense.  Yeah sure

So you mean the average moron? Yeah, that suits your thinking quite well. But many of us would prefer to look at the facts and actual definitions and not deal in ambiguosness and an attempt by someone who has no understanding of the case to modify the facts to suit his earlier errors in comprehension.

It doesn't matter how you look at it, she didn't drown her children. To claim otherwise is, well, typical of the average moron.

You must have missed this one.

Quoting WellHung (Reply 5):

From your above error/omission, it is clear that either:

1. You did not read the facts in the article and the thread
2. You do not understand the facts as they are presented above

Either way, you disqualify yourself from providing accurate input to the topic at hand. So you can continue to make yourself look foolish or just give up now and save some face.

The success of the United States is based on what the 'average moron' thinks... Do you consider the US successful? I do.

It does suit my thinking well. I don't consider 'average' people morons.

Quoting WellHung (Reply 19):

Are you living on another planet?

I read the same article that you did; it's just that you don't understand the world behind it.

How well do you know this person who dumped their children in the water of the bay? Can you vouch for her character?

How many people do you know who have schizophrenia? Can you characterize their behavior off the top of your head?

So, did this woman drop her children in the bay? Yes. Did her actions lead directly to the death of her children? Yes. Is she guilty? We don't know yet, but she's got a head start with the insanity plea.

Hung, give me just one point I cannot dispute, that's it. Don't waste my bandwidth with more ignorant garbage.

But your attempt to change the subject to some type of psychoanalysis (read: distract from your previous errors and shortcomings) because you can't dispute the above facts tells me you've given up. Next time just keep it shut and save yourself the bandwidth... and embarassment.
