JASPER, Ga. — One suspect has been jailed and others face possible charges after authorities say a woman’s body was left outside a mobile home in Jasper when friends could not revive her.

Police say 20-year-old Taylor Smith died after an apparent asthma attack she experienced while with friends. Pickens County sheriff’s deputies say the friends dropped her lifeless body off along Robin Lane. Deputies found the body near a trailer just down the road from the county jail.

WSB-TV reports that 38-year-old Marty Gaddis, faces charges that include concealing a death and abandonment of a body. It wasn’t known whether Gaddis has an attorney.

Smith’s mother, Tanya Smith, is a Holly Springs police lieutenant. She said her daughter didn’t deserve “just to be dumped on the side of the road.”

How could one be so cold? Why

How could one be so cold? Why didn't they call an ambulance, rush her to the nearest ER or something? Even if they had been doing something illicit it is unthinkable to just dump her by the roadside.

I think there is more to this story than what is reported.

Since Fiat beat me to the line I was going to

use, I'll just speak to what's been on my mind lately.

Beginning with Trayvon Martin's attack on Zimmerman, to the punk who shot the baby in the face, to the twelve twits who raped those two women in the park, to the "boys" who beat that other kid senseless on the school bus, et al.

....I'm really having a lot of trouble, anthropologically speaking, trying to determine just exactly where we draw the line between humans and animals.

Is it a double standard or just differnet expectations?

Over the last few years reading NEWS story and the reader comments I have come to understand it is not exciting NEWS for Blacks to shoot other Blacks.

The Media, the Extremists, the Reverends and the Political Hacks only get excited when OTB's shoot Blacks, not BOB.

The above mentioned parties, by a clear lack of attention, action and lack of words against BOB are inadvertently telling me.

BOB crime as the norm.
BO-OTB & BOB Attacks are the norm.
BOB Shootings are the norm.

I believe they need to review what they consider normal.
Because in a normal society this is called violence and mayhem.

The norm to some

The norm has a way of floating over to others...think---sagging pants---rap music---& etc....if it continues as we see in the news everyday....it will make it over to the masses......just like our dear giverment wants & teaches ....

PC has crippled us in sooo many ways.

Somewhat like the double

Somewhat like the double standard for posting on this site. I see racist comments on here all the time and nobody seems to be removing them. PC is not the problem on this site, it's the constant racist rants and stereotypes that are the problem. Quite frankly i'm struggling to see what race has to do with this article?

seenitB4 sagging pants is not a race thing, it's a generation thing. Rap music is just that>>> music. Parents raise children, lyrics don't.

Very sad...

It isn't our outward that will undo us, it's our inward... the heart.

That's the problem with accepting sin, it just grows and grows with each generation. Likewise, with righteousness.

If your heart isn't grieved by this, you need a checkup.

" Rap music is just that>>>

" Rap music is just that>>> music. Parents raise children, lyrics don't."

Problem is, parents aren't raising children, they are raising themselves and they are getting their moral guidance from a bunch of lyrics that mislead them down the wrong path.

I agree ICL. And even when

I agree ICL. And even when parents do their very best to raise their children, they are still being greatly influenced by a godless world view.

Panther - You know as well as I do, that

I never mince words. I say what I mean. In this case, a jury of his peers concurred.

Trayvon Martin was a thug whose miscreant behavior and criminal activity finally caught up with him.

He got exactly what he deserved.

If it had happened sooner, a good man like George Zimmerman would have been spared the ordeal that he DID NOT DESERVE.

But you go right on playing Don Quixote. I know you can't help it.

Not with the Reverend Al as your Cervantes.
