Intoxicated Mom Slams Baby's Head On Sidewalk

    A New Jersey mother allegedly slammed her baby on a sidewalk last Wednesday, police said.

    Edwina M. Negron's 8-month-old daughter was treated for non-life threatening injuries after the incident, the Beacon Police Department told the Poughkeepsie Journal.

    Last week, witnesses said they observed the mother slam her infant daughter on the ground twice. When Negron allegedly threw the child on the ground a second time when officers arrived, the little girl's head hit the sidewalk, according to NJ.com.

    Beacon police said Negron tested positive for cocaine, opiates, methadone and marijuana.

    Negron was charged with a felony count of second-degree assault and a misdemeanor charge of endangering the welfare of a child, according to the Jersey Tribune. She is being held on a $100,000 bond.

    Oh my God, that's terrible! Another woman out there with a child she shouldn't have--not because she's got a drug problem, but because she's unfit to be a mother at the most basic of levels...what a terrible shame. I'm at least relieved to know she won't have custody of that child for much longer!

    I hate to mention this, Rob Cypher, but I've noticed a lot of your news reports lately have been incredibly distressing and upsetting...what gives? From the poor pooping woman on meth, the woman fleeing a rapist, the Fentanyl rape victim, to the stiletto murderess--I can't be the only one noticing the negativity!

    How about some positive news for a change? I get that this shit happens, it's real life, I'm with you...but let's take a breather from the nightmares and hear something a little more lighthearted, what do you say?

    @ Poppi. I understand your concern for Cypher, but you did click on this headline.

    It's his freedom to report what he wishes, so long as it's within the DF, rules.

    Yours is a choice to look (or not), if teased by the headline.

    If you believe Cypher's reports are skewing "dark" for you, don't read them.

    Please don't ask others to change their behavior, simply because you don't like it.

    Scartissue: I'm not sure you understood my post. I was simply pointing out a common denominator in the threads Rob Cypher chooses to post, and wondering at the reason behind their predominately negative and painful news themes in the hopes that his devoted readers also get a balance of information. I certainly didn't mean to imply or suggest that Rob Cypher "change his behavior"--only simply consider his readers, as any news reporting agency at least attempts to create a balance of information. I understand this site isn't beholden to the paying public to disseminate information they want to hear, and I'm fully aware that bad news abounds in this world. As a member of a site that so often focuses on the struggles, desperation, and pain of thousands of its members, I had simply wanted a bit of cheer.

    I offended you (Rob Cypher) in my hopes to hear the lighter side of life I do apologize. I never meant to accuse you of some wrong-doing; I have no malice towards you or even your threads, and of course I take full responsibility for my noticing and reading them, just as am I certain you accept the reality that members may not like your posts and have the right to comment on them.

    Hope this clears the matter up!

    I hear news articles, reports & discussions like this one so often it makes me sick. Not because of the malicious acts committed (that's horrible enough), but the fact that my wife & myself have been trying to conceive a child for over 6 years now.

    My wife can get pregnant , but is unable to carry to term. Four times has resulted in miscarriages or stillbirths. That's 5 potential humans (the one pregnancy was twins, one boy, one girl) that we have had to mourn before they could even take their first breath.

    We have plenty of means and loving family that so much want to see, hold, cradle, stroke, sing to, feed, love, & just generally appreciate a little one. But yet we can't.

    I know life is not fair, but stories like this just rip my heart out by the roots and cause me to mourn all over again.

    Props to all those good parents out there that truly appreciate the beautiful lives that are in their charge & are ever so grateful for it.

    -Peace

    Woah guys, I'm not mad at anybody. I do try to keep a balance in what I report, but sadly most news reports of individuals' usage usually are only in the context of the user getting in enough trouble to merit such coverage.
