By 15 people should have developed common sense
I blame both her and parents who are just happy to cash in on this story now

Good thing this kid isn't into Nirvana. Otherwise, he would have stabbed his girlfriend in a different way.

Oh, of course. No blame for poor little Alfie, right?

How is she different than a 15 year old knocked up by an older bloke that won't hang around?

That's just a little bit offensive. You might want to actually think through what you're saying here.

I'm guessing this is only "news" because Alfie looks like he's 8.

As we were talking about Chantelle then i was only referring to her

As i previously said both kids and both sets of parents deserve all the flak in the world

I'd rather see them starve than receive taxpayers handouts

and the baby would be happy and healthy with foster parents

You're right; I did know that's not what you meant.

I'm not all that shocked at this story. The only thing really "newsworthy" about this story is that the boy is so young and looks even younger than he is. I mean let's face it, 15 year old girls have been having babies for a long, long, long time -- that's not different. And if that 13 year old boy looked older (say 15-17) instead of younger would they have gotten nearly as much attention? Would they have gotten any attention?

Yeah it's a bad situation for the kids (all three of them), but all the weeping and gnashing of teeth ("they've destroyed their lives!!" "she's a slut!!" "This world/country is going to Hell!!" etc.) is overdoing it. And a whole shitload of people in this world were born in less than good situations and have managed to live decent lives. They'll do ok...or they won't. Just like all the rest of us.

Yeah, and people are making it out to be the end of the world, when it just looks like an episode of shameless.
