Things Unseen: Had this shit bag of a father figure not been doing something else criminal, these two fools might have gotten away with their abusive behavior.
Based on my intimate experience with this type of criminally abusive personality, I can guarantee you that this was not the first time they had done something abusive to that child.
The physical harm aspect would be similar if some parents sat out on route 66 and encouraged their toddler to try and run across it, dodging cars, while they filmed it and laughed.
Psychological Harm: Imagine being a little child again.
(Note: this is the same for fathers, but I am focused on the mom here because she is the bio parent to this kid.) Anyway, now imagine your mom joking about you killing yourself with her boyfriend.
Imagine this pathetic shit bag of a father figure (the 19-year old punk pictured above) filming on his smartphone while joking about you sticking a weapon in your mouth and killing yourself – as the 1 month old biological kids of this shit bag couple watch.
Many folks were obsessing over whether or not the gun was loaded. Am I in some alternate reality,’ I thought, completely stunned as I read through the comments on my computer.
Other folks showed sympathy for the two idiot parents, hoping that they too find “security and love.” Other (likely internet trolls) threw their two cents in by saying things like, “I don’t see a problem here.” And of course, extreme gun supporters believed that these parents had a constitutional right to do whatever they wanted with their guns.
The fact that there are people who believe the rights of these criminals should come before the basic Civil Rights of this child is an appalling example of the poor state of affairs facing our nation.
While this woman’s comment was one of the most extreme, several other people said things that were also shocking.
This was simply just the first time they had been caught.
