Schoolgirl, 16, who is accused of throwing her baby girl out of a window moments after giving birth asked for a ride and a ‘huge favor’ on Facebook just 30 minutes before paramedics arrived and found infant dead

A 16-year-old girl accused of throwing her newborn child out of the window asked for help on Facebook just before authorities arrived.
Antonia Lopez, of Omaha, Nebraska, is being charged as an adult in the death of her daughter.
Authorities believe she went into labor on Friday, gave birth in her bedroom and threw her baby girl from the second floor of her apartment building.
Lopez then told her mother what had happened, according to authorities. Lopez’s mother found the baby in the grass, called 911 and gave the newborn CPR until paramedics arrived, police said.


Grandmother indicted when her two-year-old grandson dies from horrific burns after ‘climbing into scalding mop water’, and then waiting six days to call 911

A Texas grandmother has been indicted for felony murder of her two-year-old grandson.
Police say she waited at the home six days before calling authorities to report her grandson had been burned by boiling water.
‘I’ve got a two-year-old who looks like he’s in shock,’ you can hear Flores say in a 911 call released by Haltom City Police on Thursday. ‘He’s having trouble breathing.’
Haltom City police officers initially apprehended Patricia Flores, 43, in April after issuing a warrant for her arrest and setting her bond at $75,000.

A toddler was abused since birth, and officials ignored it, a lawsuit claims. Now she is dead.

When 2-year-old Glenara Bates died, she was 13 pounds — a weight more typical for a 3-month-old.
The day she was killed, prosecutors say her father swung her and slammed her against a door. She cried … and then silence.
The abuse Glenara faced likely wasn’t a shock to county officials in Ohio — she was briefly placed in foster care after she was born in January 2013.
Still, officials placed Glenara back in her parents’ Cincinnati home, where, court records say, she endured abuse at the hands of her parents for the rest of her short life.
A federal civil rights lawsuit filed by Glenara’s maternal grandmother, Desana Bradley, says that social services officials knew the toddler was being abused — and still left her with her parents.

How a 10-Year-Old Responded to NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio’s Attempt to Shut Down Her Charter School

“Alise vs. the Mayor: The King’s Gambit” is the second episode in a mini-series exposing New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s attempts to curb charter schools in his city, though they are some of the best-performing schools in the state and offer a lifeline out of the woefully inadequate public schools for many of the poor.

Directed and produced by TheBlaze’s Will Cain, the series follows 10-year-old Alise Alexander as she finds out the school she loves is being shut down by Mayor de Blasio.

“I think that Mayor de Blasio feels that, as charter schools, we’re denying certain kids opportunities,” Alexander explained. “But that’s actually the opposite of what our school is doing.”

At Success Academy in Harlem, 97% of the students are black or Latino and 77% receive free or reduced-price lunch. Yet despite any disadvantages they may have, the charter school’s fifth graders scored first in the state in math in 2013, beating “the rich kids on the Upper East Side” and “the rich white kids in Westchester,” Cain said.
