LAUDERHILL, Florida (AP) — A 12-year-old boy beat a toddler to death with a baseball bat because she was crying while he was trying to watch TV, authorities said.
The boy, who was not identified, was arrested Saturday on first-degree murder charges, Lauderhill police spokesman Lt. Mike Cochran said.
This is clearly a tragedy, but somehow I’m less than shocked that it occurred in Florida. My guess is that the kid was watching Bill O’Reilly. My guess is the Parent’s Television Council will blame this on television. My guess is that the true culprit is baseball steroid use. My guess is I’m going to hell for joking about this.
