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

Posted on 03/22/2013 7:59:43 AM PDT by Uncle Chip

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?

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.

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.

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

The British and Canadian press(es) have been trying to get us to see and I think hopefully REACT, to the evil in our nation.

I believe the world tsk tsks us these days, no longer even thinking, "They were once so great"

Hell ... we don't even get the accusation of being an ugly American anymore ... we have no bravado left.

I’m not saying this is what I think happened, but I wonder if the attack did not really occur, and maybe this is a cover story? I was thinking of the woman years ago who went on the Today show after her car with her kids was stolen by a “big black man”; when she had actually killed the kids by running her car into deep water to drown them.

As usual, the details are being provided here by the British press. But I did go and look to see if any MSM media has picked up on this. And they have. CNN and CBS are reporting this. CNN didn’t mention the race of the boys, but CBS did.

But the real shocker here is their age. The mother estimated the boys were 10 to 13 years old.

Dear Lord. And this didn’t even happen in Chicago, but in Brunswick GA. I looked it up. It’s some small coastal town.

I’m praying for the family. And also that those boys are caught and tried as adults.

“I’m not saying this is what I think happened, but I wonder if the attack did not really occur, and maybe this is a cover story? “

I had the same thought. It seems unlikely that two black guys just came up and shot them for no reason. Sounds questionable.

However, here is a comment on the CNN story. Not sure how credible, but interesting:

Crystal Miyagusuku >Bruce Glasscock • 2 hours ago −+ Flag as inappropriateThis happened in my neighborhood. I live a block away from where the shooting occurred and I can assure you that the mother did NOT hurt her own child, nothing fishy is going on regarding that. Neighbors heard the shots... heard her screaming and ran out to help her. She performed CPR on the baby. No gun was recovered at the scene, she didn't leave the scene, had no way to hide a gun. She didn't even realize she had been shot because she was in shock. And I saw a kid running down the street that matched the description, I had to give a statement to the police. An innocent mother lost her child and you people want to lay blame on her. Be careful before you judge a situation.

If the mother killed the baby, she wouldn’t have staged the killing outside.

Whatever the crime, if you are over 12 years of age you should be tried as an adult.

And the parents (or in many cases sperm donors), should also bear at least some of the responsibility.

They are over 12. In my book that makes them adults regarding their responsibility for their treatment of other human beings and their property.

I don’t want to go there. I put the LEGAL responsibility solely on the perps. Thing is, good parents can have bad kids and vice versa. I don’t want my government getting into that quagmire. I want it simple. You do it, you are responsible. If you didn’t do it, you are not, unless it can be proven in a court of law that you put the person up to it (e.g. paid the hit man to do it).

I read a story like this and I have to go give my child a hug.

If someone did that to my family, they just signed their own death warrant. I don't care how long it took, how much it cost, I WILL find out who did it. I would have my revenge, even if I had to follow them to the gates of Hell to do it.

Well I do believe in cases where parents are shown to have not been around, that represents a form of negligence..Certainly good parents can have bad kids, but that percentage pales in comparison to children born out of wedlock.
