It appears that the Comments Section of the Nancy Grace section on CNN have been frozen. The story for the last few days surrounds the disapearance of a baby, Gabriel Johnson. His mother, Elizabeth Johnson, is held in jail. She texted the father with a message that said she killed the 8 month old boy, but then she said she gave him to another couple in a park. The want-to-adoptive parents, Tammi and Jack Smith, act suspiciously on camera. Meanwhile, the father, Logan McQueary, seems to be deliberately off-camera. Why?
There were 12 Comments at 9 pm on January 12, 2010. I added my comment at 9:23 pm. It is now 1:42 am on January 13, 2010. Did my Comment strike a nerve to CNN and Nancy Grace’s moderators and investigators?

It would be wise for all to STOP addressing Tammi and Jack Smith as “the adoptive parents”! They WANT to adopt, that is all. Unless they have a Petition to Adopt, are currently under investigation of a Home Study, and, the final step, have been declared ADOPTIVE PARENTS by a Final Order of Adoption, they are only a married couple who are interested in adopting. To call them adoptive parents and to give them so much air time is an injustice to the real parents. Nancy Grace should be ashamed for giving them all the talk time. Logan McQueary is not the “biological father”, he is the FATHER of that baby! This country is far too adoptive-parent-centric. Stop it. And yes, I don’t like Tammi Smith’s on-camera behavior, either. She has far too much authority in the life of a baby who is not her property. Also, if the adoption went through, baby Gabriel Johnson would have a new, adoptive name. We would not be aaddressinghim udner his birth name. He would also have a new birth certificate proving that he was “born” to Tammi and Jack Smith. Since there is no Final Order of Adoption declaring the Smiths as the adoptive parents, andd no “new” birth certificate, they have no right pretending to be what they are not. I know, I am an adoptee promoting Adoption Reform for 36 years. Let’s hope that baby is found alive and lives out his life with his father, the only one who should be interviewed right now. He’s going through hell. Give him the support he needs.
Holding my Comment for over 4 hours to determine Moderation seems a long stretch of time.
Why don’t some of my readers go over there and make some comments?
