Scuzzbucket of the Week
Why, oh why can't we sterilize idiots? Why are people like this allowed to procreate? This poor child.
From NOLA dot com (yeah, I still visit there occasionally)
A 5-year-old girl from Kenner needed 22 staples to close a gash in her back that authorities said she received when her father used her body to shield himself from a knife attack by her mother. The little girl's parents, Maurice Sparkman, 26, and Kenisha Caples, 25, were arrested Sunday in connection with the incident.
The bloody confrontation started as an argument that occurred sometime Saturday evening at the couple's residence, listed as 341 Clemson Place in Kenner, according to arrest reports. It's not clear what the couple was bickering about, but the quarrel quickly turned physical.
Sparkman allegedly grabbed Caples, his live-in girlfriend, by her hair and threw her to the ground. Caples retaliated by grabbing several kitchen knives and launching them at her boyfriend, the arrest report said.
Sparkman ran upstairs and grabbed the couple's daughter, believing that she might bring a stop to his girlfriend's knife play. He held the girl between himself and Caples.
But an undeterred Caples allegedly grabbed a larger knife and began swinging it at them both "with no regard for the safety or welfare of the child," the arrest report said.
Insert my primal screams here....
Caples was booked with two counts of aggravated battery and second-degree cruelty to a juvenile. Sparkman was booked with second-degree cruelty to a juvenile and domestic abuse battery, arrest reports said.
