    Babies as Weapons...

    Police: Shoplifting aunt used baby as weapon

    By Jason Miles

    MEMPHIS, TN (WMC-TV) - Memphis police are searching for a shoplifting suspect who used a tiny baby as a weapon against a security guard during an escape attempt Wednesday.

    The incident happened early Wednesday afternoon at Wal-Mart on Austin Peay in Raleigh, where police say a woman was caught shoplifting. While attempting to escape, the woman hurled her two-month old nephew at a security guard. The infant, seated in a carrier, fell onto the concrete floor.

    The suspect then threw the baby at a Good Samaritan who tried to tend to the infant.

    The suspect ran from the store and escaped in a blue Ford Escort, abandoning the baby and his mother, who was in the women's restroom during the incident.

    The child's mother tended to him as the infant was treated in the back of an ambulance.

    Child abuse investigators are working with the infant's family to locate the suspect.

    Officials said the baby will be okay. Neither the loss prevention officer nor the Good Samaritan were seriously injured.

    All requests for comment from Wal-Mart management were referred to the retailer's corporate office.

    It happens. We had to break down a door a few years ago and force entry. Upon entry the suspect was standing in the living room with a few month old. She threw the kid, like she was pitching at a baseball game, at us. It sickens me that people are willing to do that to their own flesh and blood. She bailed out the back and then got tackled. For the record she hit the ground several times and skidded on her face in our attempt to subdue her

    This just shows that some people are worse than animals. Animals wouldn't treat their own flesh and blood in this manner. If the family of this child doesn't turn her in then they are just as bad as she is in my book.
