    Not Humor: Idiot Parents

    Detroit Girl, 3, Shoots Self in Head
    9 hours ago

    DETROIT A 3-year-old girl found a gun in a bedroom of her home and shot herself in the head Sunday, police said.

    One of the girl's parents apparently owned the gun, and at least one parent was home when she shot herself Sunday afternoon. Police questioned the parents and took the gun, the Detroit Free Press reported.

    The girl was taken to Sinai Grace Hospital, then transferred to Children's Hospital of Michigan. The Detroit News reported she was in critical condition.

    What idiots. It is too bad that a 3yr. old baby girl had to die because of their ignorance. I hope at least the parent that was home gets charged with something and does some time in prison.

    Unfortunately, there have been a couple of these lately.

    In at least one, maybe both, it was determined that the caregiver was lying when he claimed that the child had accidently shot himself. Most 3 year olds simply don't have the hand strength needed to fire most handguns......

    Assuming the child shot herself, is the adult tried for murder? Thats essentially what the adult did by leaving a gun loaded where the child could get it.
