I totally agree - now the "alleged" suspect has fled to Arizona doing his rap career but has a warrant out for his arrest from a failure to appear in Missouri for a Marijuana charge. Wonder how he got to leave, it would be a darn shame if Arizona got wind that he is a pot smoking, warrant holding kid that possibly shot a 12 year old.

What kind of tactics are those....expecting someone to following the laws that have been on the books for decades?????????? Are we supposed to look the other way for nice guys and throw the book at people we don't like? Nobody is denying Brian the right to have a garage.....he already has one attached to his house and a 2,800 sq ft detached one as well. He's not exactly suffering a garage…

No one can tell me the police don't know who did this.. They just need more evidence before making an arrest. Quincy talks too much for anything to go on here and the police not know about it. I think in this case a lot of threats have been made to keep a witness from coming forward. -Just my thoughts on the situation.

Hard to believe what some people ( with an attorney) will do.This man is a outstanding business man, neighbor, and friend,and is being harassed by a neighbor who doesn't want him to build a garage, just isn't right that you can use these kind of tactics these days

Abandoned baby calls to mind Safe Haven laws

7 months, 3 weeks ago by Jim Dewey

The discovery of a newborn in a dumpster in Jacksonville brings a reminder that parents of newborn children who cannot or will not take care of their infant - do not need to resort to desperate measures to abandon the child.

 

While the laws differ somewhat in each state - Illinois, Iowa and Missouri each have Safe Haven or Infant Abandonment laws on the books. In fact, every state has a law in place to allow an unharmed infant to be relinquished to the proper authorities, no questions asked.

 

In Illinois an infant up to 30 days old can be taken to a hospital - police or fire station or EMS location. Infants up to a year old can be taken to the same locations in Missouri. Iowa law allows infants up to 14 days old to be dropped off at any medical facility.

 

According to the National Safe Haven Alliance "’Baby Safe Haven’ laws or infant abandonment laws were created to remove the potential for prosecution so long as children were given unharmed and given to proper authorities.”
