Small Bits of News You Didn’t Know you Needed

Mom Goes 'Batty,' Beats Up Sex Offender
Mother Gets 3 Months for Hitting Sex Offender with Baseball Bat
A judge in the state of Washington has sentenced a mother to three months in jail for hitting a convicted sex offender with an aluminum baseball bat.
Before her sentencing yesterday, Tammy Lee Gibson told the judge that laws were needed to keep convicted sexual predators away from children.
The 40-year-old mother of two pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of third-degree assault in January.
Court papers say Gibson saw fliers announcing a sex offender had moved into a trailer park near her home. She went to the man's address, knocked on the door and accused him of molesting her daughters. Even thought Baldwin had not, Gibson hit him with the bat.
She initially was charged with second-degree assault and felony harassment, which could have meant an eight-month jail sentence if she'd been convicted. But the prosecutor and Gibson's lawyer agreed to the three-month sentence.
Mother Caught Breast Feeding, Talking on Cell Phone and Driving
A Dayton Ohio mother is facing charges for breast feeding her daughter while driving her other children to school.
Genine Compton was pulled over by Kettering police Thursday at Far Hills and Dorothy Lane while taking her other children to school.
Police say Comptom could have injured her child and others because she was breast feeding and talking on the cell phone while driving the vehicle.
Compton was issued citations for child endangering and violating the child restraint law. Compton said, "If my child's hungry, I'm going to feed it."
Police say it is against the law to drive with a child in your lap. Children under 4 or 40 pounds must be properly restrained in a child safety seat.
In this case, officers said Compton had the child in the lap with the baby's head up against the steering wheel. They say there is not only the risk of a crash, but deployment of the airbag.
Compton said she will take the advice of the officers into consideration, but she may breast feed her baby while driving in the future if she feels that it’s necessary.
If convicted of the child endangering charge, Compton could face up to 180 days in jail and fined between $1,500 and $1,800, Burke said. If convicted of the unlawful restraint charge, Compton could be fined up to $150.

Which only goes to show that the stupidest people seem to be able to have all the children they want. The lack of common sense seems to make them more fertile. Idiots!!!

They need to have a IQ test for people to take to see if they are fit to have kids.
Clearly the woman is an idiot.
