Meet 20-year-old Courtney Shanvice McBride.
McBride posed for the mugshot above when she was arrested after thinking it would be funny to put a plastic bag over her 5 month old infants head.
No one’s laughing…
According to the Broward Sheriff’s Office, McBride was arrested after she took a photo of her infant in a garbage bag with a plastic bag over the baby’s head.
On Sunday, a woman called the Davie Police to say her brother, who was out of town, was the 5-month-old baby’s father, and he had received the photo, authorities said.
McBride had sent the photo by text message to the baby’s father on March 31, the affidavit said.
“McBride stated that she took the picture quickly. She stated she placed a Publix plastic bag on the infant’s head and placed her (the infant) in the kitchen garbage quickly taking the picture with her phone,” the affidavit said.
Authorities said she tried to justify her actions by telling them she didn’t tie the bag.
While speaking to deputies, she consistently said “It was a joke,” the affidavit said.
Authorities said they found that McBride had intentionally put the bag over the baby’s head, covering the eyes, mouth and nose, which restricted her breathing. And then she put the child in a garbage container lined with another bag.
“It is believed that McBride’s intentional actions should reasonably expected to cause physical harm to the infant,” the affidavit said.
I came across this monstrosity as I was perusing SandraRose this morning, who states:
This is the kind of tragedy that occurs when women, who have limited intelligence and borderline IQs, are allowed to procreate. The Chinese got it right: giving birth should be a privilege.
Anyone living in public housing should not have the right to procreate. Anyone who can’t pass a standardized test, which reflects basic common sense, should not be allowed to procreate.
What Sandra is describing is compulsory i.e. “forced” sterilization, government programs or policies which attempt to force people to undergo surgical sterilization.
Although this is an extreme case where capital punishment should indeed be mandatory, I don’t feel that the U.S. government should be anywhere near our wombs. Give ‘em an inch, they’ll prolly take a mile!
