Tragedy as 13-month-old toddler is shot dead in his stroller by teenage robber in front of mother
The Daily Mail Online ^ | March 22, 2013 | Harriet Arkell

A distraught mother as told how she pleaded with young robbers to spare her toddler's life before they shot him dead as he slept in his stroller.

Sherry West was pushing her 13-month-old son Antonio yards from their home in Brunswick, Georgia, early yesterday morning when she was approached by two African-American boys.

She told how one of them, who looked about 15, demanded money from her and threatened to kill her if she didn't give him any. She told him she didn't have any.

'He said: "Well, I'm going to kill your baby", and I said "Please don't kill my baby."

Ms West added: 'I put my arms over my baby and then he shoved me and then he shot my baby right in the head.' Ms West began CPR on Antonio but it was in vain and the infant, who had been sleeping when he was shot, died at the scene of the 9am attack.

The child's mother suffered a bullet wound to her leg which needed hospital treatment but was allowed home soon afterwards.

Antonio's father Louis Santiago said he wished he had been there to protect his son.

The robbers are said to be African-American, with one aged about 13-15 years and the other slightly younger. The elder one, who shot the infant, is of thick build with curly hair, while the younger one is aged 10-12. They fled on foot, taking nothing.

Ms West said she only realised the gun was real when she saw that the youth had shot her child dead.

At a news conference after the attack, Mayor Bryan Thompson said: 'This is obviously just a terrible day in the city of Brunswick made even more so by the senseless killing of a young child, and it appears perpetrated by children themselves.

And, of course, the libs will try and reform these misunderstood feral animals—if they are ever caught. We wouldn’t want to keep them out of society for good, would we?

"...and it appears perpetrated by children themselves."

Right... This probably wasn't the first rodeo for these bastards.

This was not a “senseless” killing. It was a “racist” killing.

Always makes me want to puke when people pretend to know that someone’s an American based on the color of their skin.

If this story is for real, death is far too good.

We have to get these stories from the British press. That’s very telling.

Just shoot them both. Zero recidivism.

RIP, Antonio.

Race war is coming, only it won’t be blacks vs whites, it will be blacks vs latinos.

Concealed Carry would’ve helped a lot. But, unarmed, helpless civilians have to suffer the crimes of Obambi’s sons.

Disgusting.

So what happens to this teen and preteen when caught and if found guilty? Juvenal detention until adulthood? Then what?

If this is true, I think we are at the public executions stage again.

Scales need to be balanced. Publicly.

Perps = Feral humans...what is society supposed to do with these little animals once they're caught, tried and convicted? Rehabilitate them? I don't think so...maybe take them to the Vet and have them put down.

...most hideous crime I've heard of on FR in years...maybe Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton both being “Reverends” can say a few words at this baby's funeral.

“This was not a “senseless” killing. It was a “racist” killing.”

Probably, and where did these little minds receive such views on other races..Hmmmm?

The story has been in many US press outlets since yesterday. I read it at CNN, USA Toady, CBS, and a few others.
