No Excuse At All: Mother Arrested After Holding Baby Under Scalding Hot Water For Crying

In April, 18-year-old Port Richey, FL, mom Chekayla Dampier was arrested on charges of aggravated child abuse after she put her 7-week-old baby under scalding hot water to punish him for crying excessively. A little over a week later, the baby boy died from the burns he suffered as a result of the 142-degree water which left him with severe burns to his head, chest, arms, and even his eyes and ears.

    *whew!* That baby decapitation incident…still can’t process it. Won’t even try…such a profoundly horrific event. It’d be nice to know how they’re holding up, though.

    That whole bus incident bothers me because most people see the video and flip out over what he did to her, ignoring the fact that she hit and spit on him before the camera caught the rest of it.
