(CNN) A Texas woman is accused of killing her 3-year-old son after running over him with an SUV during a game of "chicken."

Lexus Stagg, 26, was seen in surveillance footage from her Harris County, Texas, apartment driving toward her three children as they ran toward the front of her 2006 Lincoln Navigator, according to a news release from Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg.

Two of the children moved out of the vehicle's path, but Stagg's 3-year-old was struck, Ogg's office said in the release.

The child was first caught under the SUV's right tire, the release said. Stagg didn't stop right away and the toddler was hit again by the rear tire of the vehicle -- which weighs about 5,600 pounds, according to the release.

I don't get it. In what way could this have seemed like a good idea? That poor kid never had a chance.

3. A line from the old TV series "ER" comes to mind...

"Stupid people shouldn't be allowed to breed."

That poor child and the others who witnessed it. Sickening.

7. You need a license to fish.

In my area you need a license to run a garage sale. She needed a license to drive her 5,600 lb. urban assault vehicle. But any asshole can create children at the drop of a hat, or their pants. The number of things in this world that make absolutely no fucking sense at all astounds me.

4. I used to think that people were just poorly educated.

But we have a level of stupid in this country that is amazing—and it seems to be getting worse, as evidenced by the fact of millions of Trump supporters. Is the Roundup in our food finally having an impact on brain cells?

What on earth could this woman have been thinking!!!

And the promotion of home/religious/priviate schooling (in many cases)

17. Food additives, flame retardants, PTFE's, PCB's, PAHs

benzene and toluene (since only 80% of all gasoline that enters a car is burned and that is the efficient models)

9. They'll carry the trauma of seeing their sibling killed

as well as knowing that it could have been them.

The mother wasn't stupid, she is "off" and her children may or may not have what ever it is that she has, but to imply that they will become as bad as her is a fear they probably live with already.

10. There isn't enough money, will, or resources

to transform the adults into caring, responsible parents, let alone remove, nurture and protect the children on an extended basis.

How do you remediate a chronic socio-economic feature of this country's failings?

Before this woman had her family, how stable was her upbringing? Is it simply a case of narcissistic immaturity? Is she a sociopath. Simply wreckless after having had two children taken from her, already?

How does a 26 year-old woman raise five kids? Is the father involved?

So many variables. You can take away somebody's kids, but then what do you do with them?
