Here are two local feel-stabby stories to get your Friday off to an enraged start.
But it’s good to be enraged when you are enraged on behalf of poorly-treated children.
Wilkinsburg police arrested the mother of a 2-year-old boy Thursday after a man found the child crying and alone in a tipped-over stroller, police said.
According to police, Ms. Johnson said she had taken the boy to a relative’s home so the relative could watch him. She told police that she left the stroller on the sidewalk in front of the home and called the relative to let them know the boy was there.
“For some reason the family member did not come out promptly,” Wilkinsburg police wrote in a news release.
Leave your child in a stroller on a sidewalk and then call a relative all, “The baby is sitting outside. On the sidewalk. Where he may roll into traffic. LOL. Go get him. Bye now.”
A 2-year-old child was removed from her mother’s house early Thursday after police, in a raid, found the toddler’s diaper full of illegal drugs.
A detective was checking the baby’s crib when he noticed the child’s diaper was lumpy.
Officers found three plastic sandwich bags of marijuana and 49 packets of heroin inside the diaper.
The bags of drugs all were covered in urine, according to a police affidavit that supports the arrests.
Ms. Wright arrived home after the search was complete. She became irate when she learned her daughter had been taken away, police said.
The affidavit said Ms. Wright claimed her boyfriend didn’t “do that stuff in the house. … He’s small-time. … He doesn’t even sell that much.”
Because if you’re going to let a criminal use your baby’s diaper as a drug-hiding place, the least you can do is make sure he’s a “small-time” dealer.
These caregivers are all the next Annoying Burghers and their crowns are in the mail and by crowns I mean a pamphlet describing the benefits of permanent birth control.
Also, I could never be a cop. With a gun. Going to people’s houses. And seeing how some of them treat their children.
I’d be in jail for sure.
