Dropping the baby

No matter what goes down you always cling to your baby, right? Wrong.

Karen Harrison, 26, for some reason decided to have a punch-up with another woman in a car park – as you do – in Moultrie, Georgia, USA. The opponent, Terra Brown, bashed Harrison with her full shopping bag. Whereupon Harrison dropped her three-month old baby on the ground, the better to get stuck in.

Baby died; Harrison charged with murder, cruelty to children; lives ruined.
