Connecticut Idiot Videotapes Herself Abusing 10-Month-Old Daughter
Kelly Park on 10-month-old baby: "I love abusing this kid."
If you're gonna abuse your 10-month-old baby, do yourself a favor and don't videotape it. Then do the rest of us a favor and jump in front of a bus.
A Connecticut woman could have used that advice earlier this month, when police say she shot some video of herself abusing her 10-month-old daughter and then sending them to the baby's father, threatening to further harm the girl.
According to authorities, 20-year-old Kellie Park sent her baby-daddy text messages accompanying the videos saying "I'll ... break her face," ''I'll beat her ... face in" and "I love abusing this kid."
Sounds like a real sweetheart, ay?
The videos -- authorities say -- show Park kicking a baby gate on top of the girl. In another video, she's seen encouraging the girl to "eat stuff off the floor." In yet another video, she asks the girl if she's hungry and then throws food at her while the baby is sitting in a high chair.
On June 9, police say Park sent the girl's father 50-55 text messages and videos threatening to hurt the baby.
Park was arrested on June 20, after the father turned the videos over to police. She was booked on one count each of cruelty to persons, risk of injury to a child, third-degree assault and threatening. She's currently held on $50,000 bail and her next court appearance is set for July 11.
