This was waved around like crazy by wannabe WN’s plaguing the CH comments as evidence of how “barbaric” Africans are. Though certainly, sometimes some of us do some messed up things, many things about this story did not add up to me. Now I see they didn’t add up to her family or the police either.
When a baby gets killed outside of a war, the first people to investigate should be the parents, not “some Black guy(s)”.
Ashley Glassey told CBS News in March, that her mother has serious mental health issues. These include a diagnosis of bi-polar with accompanying schizophrenic tendencies. West also talked with the media about how she was removed from her mother’s care at the age of 8, because of abuse and neglect in the home.
Immediately after the shooting, Glassey said West began asking questions about how long it would take her to collect the insurance money. West’s daughter also told both media and police that her mother made conflicting statements to her, regarding the child’s death – including different stories about who was shot first. West’s inconsistencies and suspicious behavior caused her own daughter to tell police and reporters that she suspected her mother was not telling the truth about how the infant was killed. CBS News reported several days later that police had not followed up with Glassey, nor had they taken her statement. A follow-up call by the press to the police, was never returned.
