When Darwin Misses

Today's "mother-of-the-year" story brought to you by Nola.com:

The mother of a 12-year-old boy killed in his own home by one of the family's two pit bulls said she had been so concerned about one of the dogs that she shut her son in the basement to protect him.

Maureen Faibish said she ordered Nicholas to stay in the basement while she did errands on June 3, the day he was attacked by one or both of the dogs. She said she was worried about the male dog, Rex, who was acting possessive because the female, Ella, was in heat.

They may crap on my floors, pee on my walls, and puke on my dinner table, but at least our cats can't kill us. Well, directly anyway. It's a damned shame when kids have to pay the price of their parents stupidity.

eMail this entry!

Could someone explain why she didn't lock the dogs in the basement. Some people are just stupid to live. I hope they put this woman in jail for a long time and I pray she doesn't have more kids at home.

Blame the kid, blame the dog, blame God, just make sure nobody blames you. I feel sorry for her other (and future) kids, they'll probably follow her example right into prison.

Actually, from what I remember, Goblin has, in fact, directly tried to kill you by laying in wait on the steps...
