where's the "eye for an eye" law when ya need it?

You know the scariest thing about this story? That some woman would be STUPID enough to have ANOTHER child with him....

BTW, ONE SHOT is an accident. Several is deliberate. What a creep.

A St. Charles County man is accused of shooting his own 12-day-old son with a BB gun.

Authorities say Shawn Michael Mohan shot the baby several times, causing circular-shaped bruises to the face, left arm, hand, foot, hip and buttocks. The injuries are not life-threatening.
Mohan, 20, claims the shooting was an accident.

The injuries were discovered when the child was taken for a routine exam at his pediatrician's office. The doctor called the Missouri Division of Family Services.

Mohan is on probation after pleading guilty in 2005 to child endangerment, related to a serious head injury to his first son when the boy was three months old. He pleaded guilty and was given a five-year suspended sentence.

I know exactly the article you're referring to. It doesn't state whether it was a BB rifle, or pistol. I'm thinking pistol, due to multiple shots, and non-penetrating. I also think lead pellets, instead of BB shot, due to the shape of the wounds. I guess the infant was lucky, in a way, that it wasn't a higher-velocity gun. And I about puked when I read farther into the piece where this wasn't the first time, let alone barely a year later after he apparently beat his other son when he was 3 months old. Where in the hell was our "family services" when this was happening?

I'd like to know where the hell the mother's brains were when she A. decided to stay with this nutjob after the last incident and B. decided to have another child with him? God only knows what these poor kids will have to endure later in life and probation stuff is BULLSHIT. You get more for hurtin an animal than you do a child.
