Parenting so bad, it's criminal

Bad dad shakes baby daughter to death over football match

Mark Lackenby

Mark Lackenby

Father, 32, shook his newborn baby to death after losing £2.50 bet on Arsenal in Champions League match:

The scumbag you see above is 32-year-old Mark Lackenby. Now, this guy likes his football (or soccer as those across the pond may call it). In fact, he likes his footie so much that when his favourite team wasn’t playing as well as he’d of liked, he took his rage out on his five-week old daughter, Ruby.

Sometime last year, Lackenby was watching football at his home in Sheffield, England while Ruby’s mother Gemma was upstairs in the bath. When the opposing team scored a goal, Lackenby wasn’t impressed. It was at this moment that Ruby (who was next to Lackenby on the couch) began to cry. Instead of tending to her like any decent sort of father (or human being) should, he yanked the tiny baby up and ‘violently’ shook her, causing ‘catastrophic’ brain and nerve injuries. She was taken to hospital, but unfortunately she died the next day. Of course, there were people queuing up to defend this ‘loving and caring’ father (who has three other children from previous relationships). What a load of bull. Firstly, no ‘loving and caring’ father violently attacks their child like Lackenby did. No ‘loving and caring’ father would put a damn football game before his child.

What’s worse, evidence showed this wasn’t the first time Lackenby had attacked Ruby. An autopsy showed Ruby had suffered BROKEN RIBS a week before she died. So daddy was breaking baby’s ribs when she was just a month old. Sick piece of shit! Today, Lackenby was found guilty of manslaughter, but was cleared of murder. He received a measly 10 years in prison. Just 10 years for killing an innocent baby. Ruby’s egg donor was originally facing charges of perverting the course of justice after allegedly lying to hospital staff about how Ruby got injured, but she was acquitted by the jury. What I wanna know is, where the hell was mum when baby’s ribs were getting broken?! She obviously knew her bed buddy was a violent thug but put her own desires before the needs of her daughter, and Ruby lost her life due to her incubators selfishness. Both breeders should rot behind bars, but such is our justice system, that’ll never happen.

  1. This is seriously causing me to tear up. Poor Ruby probably hadn’t even developed her sight yet. And she was probably trying to communicate her pain, knowing that with each breath one gets pain from broken ribs. What a horror of a world she was born in to. And the dad gets a slap on the wrist; Shameful.

    1. I hate to say this as a Yank but in my experience the UK coddles its criminals worse than we do.

      1. Yes, they do. But even here in the good ole US it would seem that babies are less valuable in the eyes of the law. Sentences are often shorter for murdering a baby than an adult. If anything the punishment should be more severe bc the child hasn’t even gotten to experience any life yet. Grrrrrrrrrrr

      2. I concur. The little monsters who killed James Bulger got given new lives and new names when young Jamie didn’t even get one life. Rumour has it that they were sent to Australia to live, but that wasn’t true. Wouldn’t be surprised that the UK are still dumping criminals here, 200 years later.

        1. Now, this is slightly digressing, but what would happen if someone assaulted one of the “little monsters” AFTER they killed James Bulger, BECAUSE they killed him. Would it still be child abuse or righteous revenge?

          1. There have been death threats made to the monsters after their identity was discovered. One just can’t keep away from kids and was charged with child porn. I think it would be a service to the community, these things obviously can’t be rehabilitated and will not lead productive lives. Test products on them.

          2. Wasn’t it James’ Mom that turned the dickweed that had the kiddie porn? I remember reading something about her being involved in that.

      3. The US we give higher sentences for drug possession then killing babies. I’d rather give medical treatment to drug users and save the prisons for baby killers.

  2. A 2 pound fiddy bet? That’s like $5. And he shook her to death because the opposing team scored a goal? No, he didn’t shake her to death because of that. It’s just an excuse. That’s an inappropriate response to any sort of stimuli. Methinks the cold over in the UK has frozen everyone’s brains.

  3. You lot want to get your facts right before you write a story because its all bullshit that’s been written the bet wasn’t 2.50 ruby wasn’t laid on settee gemma wasn’t in the bath ruby died in her mothers arms you set of hypocrites so eager to believe all the propaganda yet so eager to wrap up ur psycho Amanda Knox who everyone on planet knows is guilty

    1. Oh thank GOD you showed up here to tell us that the amount of the bet is wrong! This information is critical! Quick, everyone spread the word far and wide: THE BET WAS NOT FOR 2.50 AND WAS IN FACT FOR A DIFFERENT AMOUNT OF MONEY. Getting this message out will bring this child back to life…

      Oh wait, no it won’t. She’s still dead. She still spent the end of her life in agony with broken ribs that hurt her with every breath. He is still a murdering little bitch.

      Correcting the minor details of this terrible, awful story doesn’t change shit. And it is telling indeed that you are focused on whether she was on the couch or on some other piece of furniture and not on the fact that this beautiful child was killed by one of the people whose main purpose in life was to keep her safe.

    2. Hey, you might want to get that rage shit under control… Provide us with some proof or STFU… And seriously, WTF does Amanda Knox have to do with this? Stay on target here, this POS KILLED A BABY, deal with it! Grasping onto tiny details that make NO DIFFERENCE in the factual outcome will not change that, no matter how much you think your sputtering about it will. Give us something to go on or go away angry little child.

      1. WAY TO GO Buffettgirl. My work here has been done. Ilianne … Amanda Knox? Really? Eff off.

      2. LMAO at “angry little child”!

    3. 1. Who gives a flying fuck how much the bet was for? Even if it was for a million pounds it’s still no reason to kill a baby.

      2. Who gives a flying fuck what the baby was laying on when that ugly piece of shit picke her up & killed her? How does that have any bearing on what happened?

      3. Who gives a flying fuck where Mum was at the time? She still didn’t come to save her baby from her dick of the week did she?

      4. Who the fuck are you & why are you defending this cretinous oxygen thieving waste of skin who KILLED A BABY!!!???

    4. Do you know how hard it is to cause “catasphropic brain damage” in an infant..? The amount of force that needs to be used? Babies are resilient, and don’t break unless you try really fucking hard.

      In infants the bones aren’t hardened yet (obviously that’s how they are able to bend and fit through the birth canal) so to break bones, again, you have to try really fucking hard. So who cares how much the bet was for? And for one Amanda Knox there is a Fred West so STFU and stop spewing BS to excuse the murder of an innocent child.

  4. Trench Reynolds you want to get your facts correct before writing shit on here. I’ve just spent 3 weeks in court hearing the evidence and your article is not factual, don’t believe all you read people !!

    1. So Big Talker – give us the facts you say are there. What is this crap? Hint that you have something pertinent to say and then deliver nothing? By the by, and this might come as a shock to you, people lie in court too… what you heard there for three weeks might have been skewed too. After all, they did convict this fucktard for killing Ruby, so, what’s your point exactly?

    2. This story isn’t correct? Oh that’s great to hear. So Baby Ruby is fine then. Alive and well? No broken ribs? Just a healthy baby? And the father wasn’t given ten years for killing her, after breaking her ribs a week before her death? I’m so glad you came in here to tell us this. I’ll sleep better tonight.

      That has to be what you meant, right? Because you wouldn’t waste your time and ours arguing petty details like the amount of the football bet or which piece of furniture dear Ruby was snatched up from. That would be ridiculous.

      Yeah, you might also want to get busy and spread the word a little farther than this little blog, because everyone else, every major news outlet including the BBC, is telling the same story BB is.

    3. It appears your foil hat fell off.

  5. What exactly is the difference between manslaughter and murder? Is that the intention?

    1. I think murder is when you intend to kill someone. Manslaughter is when you don’t INTEND to kill someone, but injuries you caused still led to their death. I could be wrong, but i think that’s the distinction.

      1. Manslaughter is an accidental death due to criminal negligence (drunk driving, a fight that got out of hand, etc)

  6. Wow. What a dick. It could be almost a blessing she’s died now. We would have eventually read about this little girl. At least at this young are she won,t have to endure any more pain
