First of all, your boyfriend isn’t a babysitter.
I can’t be the only one sick and tired of seeing innocent children murdered by somebody’s no good boyfriend. I get it, life is hard. When fathers walk out, mothers are left to pick up the pieces and figure it out. It’s hard to balance earning a living with taking care of children, let alone taking care of and maintaining your own mental health.
But too many children are dying. Too many young and innocent lives are being lost at the hands of men who have a long history of red flags.
I don’t mean to sound violent but I can’t be the only one who wants to choke Brittany Bowens, the mother of slain Maleah Davis. She let her boyfriend bathe her daughter and pick her up from school and babysit, despite finding belt marks on this baby so severe that the state had to start asking questions. As if this wasn’t bad enough, there were also molestation accusations that he sexually abused Maleah. To add insult to injury, there is also a gay lover in the mix of this story somewhere. And this is who she left with her child?
Now she wants to cry for the camera? Now the mother of this little girl wants justice? Where were those tears when he molested her daughter? Or beat her?
I hope the man who killed Maleah dies in jail. There is a special place in hell for people who hurt children. But her mom needs to be rotting in a cell next to him. There is no way that a man could be accused of molesting my daughter and he lives another day. If I don’t kill him, my baby daddy will.
The man who killed Maleah will receive the punishment he deserves but what about her mother? Didn’t she have a duty to protect her child? This crime wasn’t out of the blue. The family has a history with the state who has had to intervene in the past. How far does a man have to push your boundaries before you decide that he can’t be around your kids?
I know from experience that being a single mom is hard. I also accept that it isn’t the worst thing in the world. I would rather be alone and struggle than date a man who poses a threat to the safety of my children.
I pray for the soul of Maleah Davis, she never had a chance. I also pray that her mother is held accountable for her wreckless parenting because Maleah’s story didn’t have to end this way. Her mom had a choice and she chose her boyfriend over her daughter. She is an accomplice to her boyfriend’s debauchery and doesn’t deserve the title and honor of being a mother.
