Mother pushed child out of moving car to get father’s attention

Some people will do anything for attention. Some will cause a scene. Some will fake an illness. Winnsboro, Louisiana resident Lasasha Allen decided that in order to get the attention of her child’s father, she was going to tell him that their one-year-old child fell out of the window of her car. She didn’t get the reaction that she wanted from him, so she decided that she needed to take more extreme measures to make sure that she did not get caught in a lie.

With her 7 year-old child in the backseat, Allen took her lie a step further so that she could make it look as real as possible. She reached over and shoved her toddler out of her front passenger door. At the time that she shoved the child from the moving vehicle, she had been reaching speeds of around 45mph. She stated that she thought the child would only have minor injuries.

It took a while before she finally took the child to the hospital for medical attention. The 23 year-old mother brought the toddler to Franklin Medical Center in Winnsboro at 1:30am. As soon as she brought her in, the authorities were called. The child had severe injuries and ended up needing to be airlifted to a hospital in Shreveport, LA. The little one has been listed to be in stable condition, but that is pending additional surgeries.

Allen was arrested and placed in the Franklin Parish Detention Center. She is being charged with second-degree attempted murder and being held on a $750,000 bond. She has five other children, all of whom have been placed into care with the Department of Child and Family Services. Should Allen be convicted of second-degree attempted murder, she could face from five to fifteen years in prison.

    23 with 5 kids. That speaks volumes. What a tragedy. She was 15 when she had her first child.

    Why are so many of you trying to DICTATE to others how many children they need to have. Who made you judge?????

      No one is dictating or judging. Get a grip for goodness sakes! Every time you hold someone accountable for stupid actions, it is not judging. 6 children are a lot to handle for any mother, let alone one who is only 23 and single. That is not a judgement, it is a fact. Her actions were are what is most important here. She put a child in danger and should be severely punished. People like you are the reason why the streets are filled with people like her having children they are not mentally capable of caring for properly because you want to make excuses for their behavior rather than calling it what it is and making them responsible for the messes they create. I am so sick of the madness that is destroying our children and thereby our society.

    The entire situation is bad. However, Black girls are not the only girls who have many babies out of wedlock. This is a national problem and should be addressed with young men and young women, Black and White. Let us not be so judgmental and try to amend the problem where you are. Amen

    Wow! I think she should get life, castrated from ever being able to have any more kids!! I do think she suffers from Post pardome depression. this really comes about when women (no matter the race!) have to many births close together. her body. hormones change and can havr a very mental effect on them.. But she is a detriment to society and no longer should be able to function among citizens! #period point blank! start sending a message like this and women will change their attitude toward multiple Baby daddy’s (no matter the race!)!!!!!

    SORRY! You push a toddler outta a moving car at “45mph” you get judged… If a father had done this there be no empathy or sentimental understand… Read the article twice and the comments on being judgemental (defenseless child) are stupid…. mother of five?… Oh now she gets psycho analyzed about her childhood when she got pushed out a moving car at 45mph (& it didn’t hurt that much then)…. please!…..

    The whole point of this is she was trying to get the attention of a man!!!It doesn’t matter how many children she has. She no doubt has very low self esteem and needs help. I pray that her baby makes a full recovery. She needs to learn how to love herself and never put someone else before her children. Maybe while she’s in prison she’ll get the help she needs because she does need to be put in jail.

    If the baby would have died would some of you still be feeling sorry for the mother? Can you imagine when you get older and find out that your own mother pushed you out of a moving car? ANY female that puts a man over her children doesn’t deserve her children. We as women are suppose to PROTECT our children.

    And people wonder why prisons sometimes sterilize female inmates… I’m thinking she’s a prime candidate.

    I’m interested asto whether *any* other baby-daddies will step forward and rescue the children from the state… Then on the otherhand I’m sensing most her procreations had to deal with casual acquaintances or casual sex at the least… Based on pushing a toddler from a car to manipulate emotion… Alot of us skip intimate details before any authentic relationship or commitment for family developes….. Alot of young people aren’t ‘taught this…. that I can give empathy as a group of people… *But Damn*….

    That was a very hard comment on what her situation may be because of she’s of a lower class. I wonder how your mind works, yes terrible thing she did but this is the example of how our generation is growing up today especially young women black or white. THIS GIRL NEEDS HELP!…MENTAL HELP as well.

    I think she suffers from post partum here kids need to be with other family while she gets help. Question where are these men or baby daddy’s that she seeks attention from she needs to be punished and I sure hope like hell she gets it this child did not deserve this poor child I really feel bad for these children of hers its a scar on all of them to even know this happened she don’t deserve to ever have those kids again 23 with six kids she screaming for help

    Don’t even give her a trial, doesn’t matter how many kids she has. If you don’t want the baby give it to the father or someone who is willing to love her. You just don’t hurt children. Give her counseling while she’s in jail.

    Stop, just stop, this behavior is common in america, mental health issues are real, and we will not get started on the Europeans and what they do to their children, with names with ski’s, ez, ola, mc, hen’s so just stop and look at the man in the mirror, I think you will be looking at a ugly ass fool.!!

    I feel for the child but not the mother. It does not take a rocket scientist to figure out that this mother is overwhelmed. I blame her for not keeping her legs closed.

    I am sick and tired of people feeling sorry for the parent that abuse their own flesh and blood.

    The mother need to spend some time in prison and receive a lifetime of psychiatric care. She should be sterilized and have her children taken from her. She need to be forced to finish and obtain advanced education and get a job and leave the sorry a$$ed boys alone.

    Just because a man has a little fur between his legs does not make him a man.

    Like I said, there is enough blame to go around. #1 where were the parents during the first 5 pregnancies? #2 where are the fathers ? Clearly she has mental issues. Where was CPS ? Had to be a case file on her somewhere. Retired officer, I thought I seen and heard everything. I think I have seen enough of what tragedy people do to each other. But, this is a new one ! So for everyone that thinks she needs help, prison has mental wards! Attempted murder, child endangerment, child abuse, and that is just for starters. And I could care less if she is black, white, Hispanic, blue, orange, or green. 20 years done !!!!
