I begged them not to kill my baby: Tragedy as 13-month-old toddler is shot dead in his stroller by teenage robber in front of mother
Sherry West approached by two boys yards from home in Brunswick, GA
They demanded money before shooting her son Antonio dead as he slept
Police offer $10,000 reward for information about 'senseless killing'
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.

This is a great reason to carry a firearm.
Actually, you’re late. This has been FReeped several times. And this IS making national news in our MSM.
This story makes my BS meter start to twitch uncontrollably.
I’m sure CNN will be sad when these 2 Black Punks get the death penalty, ruining their lives & bright future.
I’m sure I’m not alone in saying they should be burned in a public square.
Did mom submit to forensic testing? Easy to tell if she fired a firearm.
She needs to learn how to speed-dial 911 faster. If she had a gun, the perps probably would have just taken it from her and used it against her.
They deserve to ripped to pieces by a mob.
Do not call the animals Children. They are feral rabid animals who need to be torn apart.
What gun law would have kept this animal from killing this infant. Where did he get the gun certainly ha had no background check. I only hope when they find him he fires one shot that will start a fussilade that will cut him to pieces.
The thought crossed my mind as well.
Something smells rotten in Denmark. As presented, I don’t believe one iota of the story.
Law enforcement is off to a bad start when the mayor resorts to weasel words like this.
This was no child who did this. It was a teenage thug who needs his life rearranged.
She should have used a pen, or some scissors. Perhaps her rape whistle. Have the police concluded whether or not there was a call box nearby? Oh, no! Why didn’t she just urinate all over herself. They would have run away screaming.
Indeed. I carry my 'wallet' in a specially shaped 'carry pouch' that fits inside the waistband of my trousers. Just in case anyone demands money from me in a less than sociable manner or under threat of violence.
There is skepticism out there that this woman may have done it, but I would urge people not to underestimate how sick the nation’s youth are.
It’s not such a huge leap from threatening to slice up an elderly bus monitor like butter or raping a special-ed girl under a desk to shooting a baby in the face.
Welcome to post-Christian America.
So the Brits print something that the American press deliberately suppresses.
That fact that is missing from US news reports is significant. The left wants to keep guns in the hands of illegal, violent criminals, half of which are a member of that minority.
Honest FRiend, no underestimation here.
“2 Black Punks get the death penalty”
They won’t. If they’re underage, it’ll be out at 21 and doing more killing.
Yeh and little thugs like those long pauses because it gives them time to get away, destroy evidence, and call their local Benjamin Crump.
It's worse than "Clockwork Orange."
Thanks for the update.
the details in the story I linked are chilling - between this story and the one earlier today about abortion atrocities (the correct word), ... I’m ... I have no more words.
You have to live outside the US to get news of what’s happening in the US.
Will probably get flamed and can't put my finger on a 'why', but, my BS meter is twitching too.
The MSM and others state that anyone under 18 is a child.
So the mother kills the child in broad daylight pushing the child down the street in a stroller rather than an accidental drowning while bathing the child?????
Better one psychotic woman than a systemic societal issue.
10-4 the helm ... Have to get to the helm. Dang.
Now I know why my kid carries a Glock 19 on the right side and a KelTec PF9 on the left. Nothing wrong with the Hi-Power or the 1911A1, but you do need to keep your pants up.
I don’t care how old them boys are:
String em up.
Ya, read it. Thanks.
Yep, totally bogus. I’d bet the mother shot the kid. But that’s just based on what little I’ve read in the article. Makes no sense.
'He and some other boys were going to ambush a kid,' Bernie Weisenfeld, a spokesman for the Gloucester County prosecutor's office, told the AP Friday.
Glassey was armed with a knife, but the 17-year-old target of the attack was able to get the knife away from him 'and Glassey ended up on the wrong end of the knife,' Weisenfeld recalled.
Prosecutors decided the 17-year-old would not be charged because they determined that he acted in self-defense.
Just this very moment, the nationwide news on my local A.M. station announced the arrest of the two murderers.........WJR - Detroit
They are 17 and 14
Mine's twitching, too. I saw her on tv a little while ago and though she dry-sniffled a little, not a single tear was shed. Nor did it looked like she'd been crying.
The police had been asked if she was being considered as a suspect and they said they won't comment. Sounds like their BS meter is twitching, too.
And with a gun ?
That is just a touch hard to swallow.
Something about this story stinks..just doesn’t pass the smell test..could it be true, absolutely, but I wouldnt be surprised if this isn’t another Susan Smith in the making so I will withhold judgment
I posted my comment BEFORE I knew about arrests being made..so I take it back..hang these bastards..and yes this is EXACTLY why people need to carry guns..I will wait for Piers Morgan to comment..yeah, he wont because this story doesn’t fit into his take away everyone’s gun agenda
<>That is just a touch hard to swallow.<>
Take a big gulp and a glass of water:
Two youths arrested in shooting death of Georgia baby
actually, I have the perfect sentence...
Judge: “ I sentence you to be shackled, and placed into a room for 10 minutes. The mother of the child you killed, and her relatives, will be in that room. The door will be closed. At the end of 10 minutes. the mother and her relatives will be shown out. If you are alive, you are free to leave.”
that should just about do it...
They type, write press reports, read from teleprompters, speak on the nightly news too. Full agreement FRiend.
Well, I see there are doubts about this.
FWIW, I used to work in Greenwich Village when there were street punks in the area. We always made it a policy to carry a twenty-dollar bill in our pocket, so we could hand it over if we were held up.
The guys doing the holdups were usually drug addicts looking for a quick fix, and they got really, really angry if you didn’t give them some cash right away.
That could be the explanation here. Give us the cash NOW, or else. That’s pretty much what she says they said to her.
They will try to turn them into the equivalent to St. Trayvon.
