      Love to meet that Pr**k in a dark alley. That poor poor tiny baby. Can't even watch any more about. Hope he gets what he deserves and that beautiful baby is safe now.

          All they have talked about is her POS son that tried to Kill his daughter. Where is the child’s Birth Mother? Why have they not said a word about her or where she is? That’s what is so Confusing to me...🤔

              This is really horrible what happened to that baby-girl. But a mother should stand by him because she gave birth to him. BUT when she adopted her son's baby, she would have had to choose between him OR the baby girl. It would have been better NOT to adopt the baby but give it to the great-grandmother instead. Where is the biological mother of the baby? I want to know her opinion or where they both doped up when this all happened? Why aren't HER parents stepping up to protect the baby girl, too?! This is crazy, sad and heart-breaking. He ought to be castrated to never have a child ever again. Even in prison he has really bad anger issues. What will happen if he is let out, if he cannot even control himself surrounded be police officers?

                                We should all have hatred towards people like this and express our hatred towards them and Someday we should have the ability to act on our hatred towards people like this just the way I described and more.

                                                                                            Just finished watching the full show and I really hope @jennypalgut keeps her word and keeps those two relationships separate. She admitted that she could see him hurting his daughter again. Hopefully she puts boundaries in place and says,” you can’t talk to me about her anymore. Period. If you can’t do that then we can’t have a relationship.” Her main focus needs to be her granddaughters safety, not trying to mend things and try to be some fantasy “big happy family.” I’m loving the grandma’s attitude. She gets it.
