Every Child Deserves a Mother and a Father

posted by on May 29 at 15:58 PM

This morning I read something in the paper about a mother rushing her son to the hospital after the boy fell off some playground equipment and landed on his head. The story said the boy died, and I felt terrible for the mom. Still do, even though there was no playground equipment and no fall and the story now qualifies for an ECDAMF. From the Seattle Times:

Police have arrested the boyfriend of a woman whose 3-year-old son was fatally injured at a Tacoma apartment complex.

Police spokesman Mark Fulghum says the injury occurred Wednesday inside an apartment, not on a playground set as officers were first told.

The 25-year-old man was booked into the Pierce County Jail at 1:30 a.m. today for investigation of second-degree murder. He had a 2004 conviction for assaulting his own son.

The man had been watching his girlfriend’s boy while she was at work. When the mother returned she drove her son to St. Clare Hospital in Lakewood where he was declared dead.

I assume that also qualifies for a DTMFA?

No, that qualifies for a DGIITFFP (Don't Get Involved In The First Fucking Place). How hard is it not to enter into a relationship with someone who beats his own child? Jesus.
