Here’s the gist of this story in case you’re too lazy to click on it. Basically, this family owned two pit bulls, a male and a female. The male was agitated since the female was in heat. The woman was scared that the pit bull might harm her son while she went to perform errands. What’s this genius do? She locks the 12-year old in the basement, also putting a shovel on the door to keep him in there. So, the kid gets out and the male pit bull mauls and kills him.
Here’s where the ranting begins. First off, if you’re worried about the potential danger you’re putting your child in leaving him alone with the dog, you do one of two things:
1. Put the dog in the basement.
2. Take your kid with you on the errands.
By putting your child in the basement and bracing the door with a shovel what do expect the kid to do if there’s a fire down there? Generally speaking, windows in basements don’t allow much room for entry or escape. Now, the child is dead, and the mother’s response is this:
“And I told him: ‘Stay down there until I come back.’ Typical Nicky, he wouldn’t listen to me.”
She’s blaming her kid for her own stupidity! Most kids won’t stay in a room they’re locked inside of. This woman should be charged for something, whether it’s negligence or the inability to properly care for a child. If she could be charged for sheer stupidity, they should charge her for that too. Her next comment is a real winner too:
“It’s Nicky’s time to go,” she said in the interview. “When you’re born you’re destined to go and this was his time.
Right, because a 12-year old is always approaching their time. Would this kid even have a chance even if he made it to 13? It’s amazing that with a parent in the house with the IQ equal to a rock he made it as far as he did.
Then, since she obviously wasn’t smart enough to raise a dog either, the female pit bull is being put down (the male that attacked was shot by police). As a dog owner, I know full good and well that dogs are not aggressive, not even pit bulls. They’re raised that way, and in this woman’s household, I’m not surprised.Powered by Sidelines
