Arthur Morgan III was arrested and taken into custody Tuesday Nov. 29 after a nationwide manhunt. He has been charged in the murder of his own 2-year-old daughter Tierra. Authorities believe Morgan threw his daughter into a park stream last week. The poor little girl was found floating in the water still strapped in her car seat. Funeral services for Tierra were held Monday Nov. 28. You can read more about the arrest and see a video clip at www.myfoxny.com.

This is the last time I will post a story about the murder of a child. I just can’t take it anymore. These people who are willing to hurt their own children are not idiots – they are monsters. Cases like this aren’t about a lack of common sense. They are about a lack of humanity.

A Florida woman was arrested for attempted murder Saturday after she tried to run a man down with her car. That’s bad enough, but what’s worse is that her 18 month old daughter was unrestrained in the car with her. The baby was repeatedly thrown into the dash of the car as her mother rammed her vehicle into a fence and house while she was attempting to kill someone. The child was taken to the hospital with a large lump on her head, and the Department of Children and Families was notified. The woman’s arrest also violated her current parole on a previous battery charge. Read the full story in the St. Petersburg Times. The only question I can ask is . . . What the hell is wrong with these people who keep hurting their children?

A little boy in Chicago was beaten to death on his 4th birthday by his mother’s boyfriend. They have the man in custody, and he has been described by others as “antisocial”. Read about it here. (The story includes a video.) Nothing, and I mean nothing, pisses me off like violence against children. Right now I’m too worked up to write anything more, but I will return to this issue later.
