How Low Can You Go

There are some truly sick people out there. Too bad there isn't some way to determine who is fit to be a parent beforehand.

An 18-year-old woman has been arrested after police in Florida say she used her infant son to batter her boyfriend.
Beach Safety Ocean Rescue Captain Tammy Marris tells local news outlets the 6-month-old boy was taken to a hospital Monday afternoon where he was reportedly doing OK.
Officers responded shortly before 4:30 p.m. Monday to a beach in Daytona Beach. Marris says responders found Tatyana Allen had battered her boyfriend, also the baby's father, with the child.
Officers arrested Allen on charges of battery and infliction of physical/mental injury on a child. She was being held Monday night without bail.
More:
Witnesses told beach investigators that they saw Allen walk up to her boyfriend, the baby's father, and punch him several times in the face.  Allen then grabbed her baby as a weapon and swung him "like a bat" at her boyfriend, the report states.

Allen dropped the baby facedown in the sand and the boyfriend picked up the baby, the report states.

The caller said Allen smacked the baby, which was covered in sand.

Witnesses said "Allen was extremely rough with the baby," investigating officers wrote in their report.

As Allen walked up the steps to the boardwalk, the baby's head also struck a railing, the report states.

Somehow I doubt if she'll ever be nominated for Mother of the Year.

The more I think about it, the more I think sterilization might be an apt punishment for people like this.

Her actions are bad enough. But the next story will sicken and disgust you.

Father and partner charged with allegedly abusing 10-month old girl
A father has been charged with sexually assaulting his baby daughter and offering her up to his boyfriend, who then gloated about it over Skype.

The two men, both aged 50, were arrested in Ivanhoe, Victoria (Australia) on Tuesday. They were extradited to Sydney on Wednesday night to face charges that Child Abuse police said were so horrific they were lost for words.

It's understood the men, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, are in a relationship and live together in Melbourne.

One of the men fathered the little girl, who was born in 2014 and now lives with her mother in a small town in central western NSW.

It's alleged the men travelled to the town on April 19, 2015 and looked after the baby girl for three hours while her mother was at a training course.

Unbeknownst to her, the men allegedly sexually abused the 10-month old baby over those three hours and allegedly took photos of her that they later uploaded to their computers.

There was a time when I would advocate for a long, lingering, and painful death for disgusting creatures like these. But as I've grown older I think it makes more sense to just calmly dispose of them in the most efficient way possible and move on. Either way, though, they deserve to die - soon.

Here are some warning signs of possible child abuse.
A child who's being abused may feel guilty, ashamed or confused. He or she may be afraid to tell anyone about the abuse, especially if the abuser is a parent, other relative or family friend. In fact, the child may have an apparent fear of parents, adult caregivers or family friends. That's why it's vital to watch for red flags, such as:
  • Withdrawal from friends or usual activities
  • Changes in behavior — such as aggression, anger, hostility or hyperactivity — or changes in school performance
  • Depression, anxiety or unusual fears or a sudden loss of self-confidence
  • An apparent lack of supervision
  • Frequent absences from school or reluctance to ride the school bus
  • Reluctance to leave school activities, as if he or she doesn't want to go home
  • Attempts at running away
  • Rebellious or defiant behavior
  • Attempts at suicide
Specific signs and symptoms depend on the type of abuse and can vary. Keep in mind that warning signs are just that — warning signs. The presence of warning signs doesn't necessarily mean that a child is being abused.
Child abuse ends only when someone is concerned enough and courageous enough to speak out. Below are a couple of links to organizations that help victims of child abuse. I hope you never have cause to use them, but just in case...

My senior year of high school one of my best friends asked me if my father" touched me." I went immediately to my parents who went immediately to authorities. I hated that man, but more so, I hated their mother who chose to stay with the father even when he admitted to molesting his daughters. The daughters came to live with us. Back in those days nothing was done to him - no charges, nothing.

Even before I scrolled down to the photo I knew!

BB - that's so sad. Good for you and your parents. Hopefully the daughters are doing okay today.

Toejam - yeah, but... the sickos in the second story are white. This kind of perversion transcends race.

All involved would look a helluva lot better with a .45 cal hole directly between their eyes. It should be perfectly legal to shoot animals like that on sight.
