That video is interesting. Myself, I find one of the person's interviewed sounds like he is hiding something.

Very interesting in the latest news article about the custody.

Young Angie Barnard was working, and taking care of both her daughter Emily and her sister. What is the story with Angie's parents that the court had given Angie custody of her sister? So Angie's sister misses more than 5 days of school (was she skipping school? was she sick and they couldn't afford to see a doctor to get a note and excuse?) and so there is a legal hearing in court about this since that's what is done here (but no where else). Judge Taylor decided that because of the skipping school Angie should lose custody of her sister. He also decided to take Emily away from her as well. Apparently the paternal side has something to do with bringing this hearing so that custody could be taken from Angie as they didn't like Angie.

So Emily goes to Angie's grandparents the Harmons in March 2010. The paternal side doesn't like this and gets Bill to sue for custody. They tell the court that the father Eric is living at Bill's house and so Emily can see her father, from whom custody was originally taken to give to Angie, while her grandfather supervises. So custody changes again in January 2011. But this is a ruse. Eric is not living with his grandfather in Morristown, he is living in a trailer with Amber in Mooresburg. Bill with legal custody did say he saw her on Friday and she had no bruises then. But it is pretty clear Emily wasn't staying at his house at all, nor did he want her.

Its the same old story. Drugs. People on drugs can't care for their kids properly. Drugs are behind this entire tragedy.

I hate to say this, & I hope I'm wrong, but I've got a feeling they will only charge her with 2nd degree murder. They will say that it wasn't premeditated.(not sure if I spelled that right)5700

Regarding second degree murder.

The last extremely brutal child torture/murder that was comparable to this one also happened in Hawkins County, the Scotty Trexler case. You can read a bit about the history here. http://www.therogersvillereview.com/story/769...

Don't you think it's strange that so many of the very worst cases of child abuse in the eastern United States in the last 30 years have happened in Hawkins County? I work with people and I know about what is going on. The spousal and child abuse in this county is unbelievable, and is far worse than in other parts of the country. There is something about this county where beating a child or a wife half to death is something that gives people pleasure just before they put on their suit and go to church on Sunday and talk about how they are saved. I think it is because of the preachers we have here. They preach a gospel of abuse and beatings. Spare the rod and spoil the child to them means not loving discipline but taking pleasure in the abuse and torture of others.

Anyway, back in 1987 Scotty Trexler was a 21 month old little boy who was tortured and murdered by Kerry Bowers and Tammy Trexler. Like poor Emily, Scotty also suffered a great deal of intentional pain and injury over a prolonged period by a family full of psychotic torturers and evil, vile lunatics just like in this case. There are a lot of similarities.

Read this description from the trial - "second and third degree burns covering the right side of the child's face, torn areas around the kidney and pancreas, four tears in the liver, leg muscles pulled away from the child's pelvis, legs pulled out of the socket and a rainbow display of colors on the top of the skull from bruising."

The people that abused him got off pretty light because of the whole premeditation issue. As a result Trexler's law was passed in Tennessee which says that ANY time a child is abused to death, it's first degree murder.

If the prosecutor and DA refuse to charge first degree in this case, we need to get rid of the prosecutor and DA because they are also vile evil people who love brutal child abuse.

Nothing less than first degree capital murder is acceptable for Amber. As to the people that knew about the bruises, which were nearly a week old, and who have been lying about it to reporters, those people all need to go to prison as well, but it won't be first degree murder so they might get away with something like 15 years.

I have to believe God has a special place in hell for people like that. They may not have to answer for it here but justice will be served one day.

Did anyone notice how he seemed to not know Ambers name? He kept referring to her as "the girl." Am I just imagining that?

What about judge Taylor? Why should he get away with his incompetency on the bench on this matter? Have you seen this case file? It reads ver similarly to trexler's. This was total incompetency at it's worst from the judge's bench. His political aspirations were his only concern and objective.

Yes, you are correct, but in the US judges have power that can not be easily questioned or held to account. This power is necessary in order to administer justice that judges have vast power that can not easily be impeached.

The idea is that communities will appoint and elect judges that are responsible men of character, honor and integrity. If that fails, the community has only themselves to blame for the chaos and evil that follows.
