Baby dies; parents charged with neglect
Parents arrested after baby boy dies
Malnourished, Bruised, Battered Infant Dies, Parents Arrested
Let me start this out with the fact that none of the stories have given a name for this child, so, I have decided on the name Bao for him. The name means “precious treasure” in Chinese and “protection” in Vietnamese. It just seemed wrong for him to not have a name.
A 5-month-old boy has died. The boy’s parents have been charged with child neglect and the charges may be upgraded.
Kierra Monet Hayes Laird, 22, and Cordero Webber, 23, are being held in the Duval County Jail on $500,000 bonds.
Cordero and Kierra decided that their 5 month old baby boy(that I have named Bao) didn’t need any medical attention since his birth even though he sustained a “serious injury” when he was 1 month old. He was covered in bed bug bites. He had bruises and abrasions to his face, chest, elbow, ear and the back of his head, and five fractured ribs. “Bao” did not have any body fat and was malnourished, and there was no food in his bowels or stomach, according to the autopsy report.
Medics were called late Friday to the couple’sForest Garden apartment at 675 103rd St.where his parents said their son was alive and on a blanket then became unresponsive.
They told investigators his only treatment was the application of an ointment on facial sores they believed were from bed bugs, according to the arrest report. They said they tried to feed the boy baby food and cereal along with baby formula. The sperm donor tried to force feed “Bao” but he would just spit it out.
Webber told police he thought his son was autistic because he could not hold his head up and would always look down and to the right. Gee….you think you might want to take the baby to the doctor for that??? Of course not….this is what they did:
Laird told police she noticed bruises on her son in July but didn’t seek medical attention except advice from grandmothers and in online searches.
In an interview with police, both parents said they smoked marijuana in the apartment where they lived with their son and Laird’s two daughters.
The two girls have been placed with a relative, said John Harrell, a spokesman for the state Department of Children and Families.
The incubator said that she was negligent in not getting “Bao” medical treatment. Hmmm….wonder where she got that idea from??
Now, as angry as I am with these prime candidates for retroactive abortion legislation….read what the “grandmother” and family friends had to say:
Kimberly Webber, the boy’s grandmother, said: “It’s just that they were young parents and the baby was a baby, and they didn’t do anything. They did not do anything. They did nothing to them children, nothing. The baby just stopped breathing.” You’re right you stupid bitch….they did nothing…they didn’t feed, love, or provide medical attention for “Bao”.
“All of it is a lie because they did not do that to the kids. They did not do that. They are good parents,” said Justice White, a relative of the couple. “They did not do that. They are lying. I am telling you that. They did not do it.”
“I have a little girl and I’m pregnant with a little boy, five month months and I would never neglect my child like that and let my child go hungry like that,” says neighbor Alondria Plummer.” When I used to go over there and see the baby I would always ask, ‘had she ever taken him to the doctor?’ She’d say she had, which I know she hadn’t,” says Plummer. “When you touched his stomach, you could feel his ribs and it’s sad. It came to a point in time where she didn’t want me coming over there anymore.”
Plummer said she suspected her neighbor’s children were being abused and neglected. You fucking cow!! Why didn’t you call someone to help??
Well, you fucking she-devils, I hold you just as accountable for “Bao’s” death as the skin tags that gave birth to him!! I hope and pray that “Bao” haunts you up until and including your dying breath!! You fucking bunch of slags never once thought about poor “Bao”!! Who fought for him? He was the innocent precious treasure that none of you cared about.
I love you little “Bao” and I know that you are in a far better place. Rest peacefully, baby boy. I think I need a tissue now.
