Maternal instinct has left the building

A woman used her 4-week-old baby as a weapon in a domestic dispute, swinging the infant through the air and striking her boyfriend with the child, authorities said. 1

Chyrotia Graham, 27, of Erie, told police she had been drinking when an argument with the child's father turned violent early Sunday morning, according to an affidavit filed to support Graham's arrest.

Graham said she "snapped" and began grabbing things and throwing them at Deangelo Troop, 20, not realizing she had picked up her 4-week-old son, Jarron Troop, telling police she held the child by his legs and swung him at his father. Police had said they believed the woman held the baby by the midsection when she hit the man.2
Some people should not be allowed to breed and contribute their genes to the gene pool thus propagating their stupidity to future generations. Even a monkey knows better. I think this may be a case for government imposed sterilization of 16 year olds who fail parental and psychological exams. Now I’m not saying this is a good idea, but maybe we should just consider it. I’m just say’n.

Although I agree with most of your statement, 16 years of age is a little early to determine whether or not they should become a parent, most people don't mature til after high school when they become an adult who must be responsible for themselves. I think CPS should raise their bar on when to step in and relieve those parents of their duties in these situations as soon as possible if you ask me. The states should immediately take a look at what laws could be ammended to better protect the innocent children.

I'm not a fan of CPS in most situations. Rather, I would have the parents exercise personal responsibility. While people do not mature until after high school, and I would argue until even after college, I think that, for the most part, a person is the same person they have always been. The underlying issues that plague an adolescent typically remain unresolved and manifest in adulthood. Short of a life changing encounter, a person will not change, and as such, most do not. CPS and laws are not the answer, nor are government imposed sterilization (hyperbole). Personal responsibility is paramount, but that idea is lost in this culture of “point and blame”. My hidden point is that some people have no right becoming a parent. The ability to conceive in no way equals the ability to be a parent. Sure, no one is ready to be a parent when the first one arrives, but some people are no more qualified after "raising" their children for 18 years.
