Say What?!?! 8 Year Old Boy Shoots His Little Sister and Their Mother Cleans the Scene and Returns t

I've said it before, I'll say it again. Some people should have to take competency tests in order to become parents! A family in Ohio, (yes, it's always Ohio isn't it?) are struggling to come to grips with the actions of one mother who left her two young children alone while she worked.


"A prosecutor says an 8-year-old Ohio boy loaded a rifle, repeatedly shot his 4-year-old sister at home and then informed their mother, who left work to check the girl's injuries, cleaned up a bloody bed cover and then returned to work, leaving the children alone again.

The woman, 27-year-old Alyssa Edwards, is jailed on child endangerment charges related to the Saturday shooting in Hayesville, about 70 miles (113 kilometers) southwest of Cleveland.

The Ashland Times-Gazette reports Edwards tearfully appeared in court Monday and said there was no information the judge needed to consider before he set her bond at $30,000. An attorney is being appointed for Edwards for her Wednesday arraignment.

The girl remained hospitalized Monday in stable condition. Ashland County sheriff's Chief Deputy Carl Richert says the girl's injuries were not considered life-threatening. No other details about the girl's injuries have been released. Her brother was in the custody of children's services."

I don't even know what to say about this situation. How can you just come home, see that your son has SHOT your daughter, do some housekeeping and go back to work? I'm quite sure your boss would understand if you had to take the rest of the day off!
