Not only a “Gun Death?” story, but also a “Bad Justice” IMHO:
AN 18-year-old woman was held Tuesday on $US1500 bail after she allegedly gave birth to a baby boy in the bathroom of her Boston apartment and then tossed him out of the window into a trash-strewn alley,
Infants are so fragile and dependent its lucky this baby lived. I’ve detailed several cases of mothers killing their own, and of all the cases I’ve read I can’t recall a single one where a gun was used to commit murder.
Ms Flores is accused of causing her son possible permanent harm after he fell 5m into an alley paved with cement where he was found after a neighbour heard the infant’s cries and called for help.
The baby suffered from hypothermia, had abrasions on his face and body, and his brain was swelling and bleeding, according to doctors at the Massachusetts General Hospital.
Horrible, and let’s look to the “Bad Justice” bit:
Eva Flores pleaded not guilty in East Boston Municipal Court to charges of reckless endangerment of a child and assault and battery of a child in connection with the incident on September 20.
Can ANYBODY argue that tossing a new-born baby out the window and into an concrete alley isn’t attempted murder?
A sick case indeed!
