It's Ok Then.

I was going to post snippets, but this is just so...so beyond my comprehension, I had to put it all out there.

From the AP, via Yahooooooooo!:
Calif. Mother Explains Fatal Dog Mauling:

SAN FRANCISCO - The mother of a 12-year-old boy killed in his own home by one of the family's two pit bulls said she had been so concerned about one of the dogs that she shut her son in the basement to protect him.

Maureen Faibish said she ordered Nicholas to stay in the basement while she did errands on June 3, the day he was attacked by one or both of the dogs. She said she was worried about the male dog, Rex, who was acting possessive because the female, Ella, was in heat.

'I put him down there, with a shovel on the door,' Faibish told the San Francisco Chronicle. 'And I told him: 'Stay down there until I come back.' Typical Nicky, he wouldn't listen to me.'

Nicholas apparently found a way to open the basement door.

Faibish said she felt compelled to call the Chronicle Saturday to defend herself against widespread public outrage directed at families with children who own pit bulls.

'My kids got along great with (the dogs),' she told the newspaper. 'We were never seeing any kind of violent tendencies.'

Faibish found her son's body in a bedroom. He was covered in blood from several wounds, including a major head injury. No charges have been filed.

Ella was shot to death by a police officer the day of the attack. Rex was taken to a shelter, but Faibish said she wanted him put down.

'I think of Rex as someone who ... murdered my child,' she said."
There is no defense. This woman is nuts. She needs to do some time.
I just can't fathom how anyone in their right mind would lock their kid in the basement because one of their dogs was acting crazy. There were so many other options, like putting the loony dog in the basement, restraining him, put a muzzle him. Or, she could have taken the boy with her on the errands, or if she just didn't want the boys' company, she could have had the boy go with his friends.
. . .

There are so many things she could have done, NOT having children or dogs in the first place is one of them. She obviously is too fucking stupid to care for either.
And now she's trying to justify and defend her actions? The dog murdered her child?
The dog will pay for it yes. It will be killed, but it never would have happened if she would have been a responsible parent.

What a moron.

I'm so glad you attacked the mother and not the pit bull...

She is a dumb-ass... asking your kid to watch the dog while you run out for milk is one thing... locking your son in the basement with a powerful animal that you know "has been acting weird" is depraved indifference...

She should most certainly do some time... let's just hope the prosecution does a better job than Michael Jackson defense team!
