Mother of the Year

I know it's only May, but I think we have a winner already!

Police: Mom shot girl with BB gun
May 4, 2008

SHEBOYGAN, Wis. A woman shot her daughter, 8, in the thigh with a BB gun to win a $1 bet with her boyfriend, authorities say.

Angelique Vandeburg, 28, was charged with one felony count of intentional child abuse and released on a $5,000 signature bond Friday.

Investigators began looking into the incident last week after a school counselor reported it to police. The girl had been shot earlier, but a bruise remained on her thigh, the counselor said.

The girl said the shooting occurred after her mother drank 10 to 12 beers.

They must be white...I picture this taking place somewhere in a trailer park.

EDIT:

Right about the race...

Her address is published in another online story (not so sure about posting her address here..) It is in an area where the Google maps didn't image, but it looks llike it is on the outskirts of a business park. Probably trailers.

The 8 year old gets shot, and for what?

One measly dollar.

And mom gets put a way for three years, so it's a win/win.

Probably a bs over reaction. hmmm what type of BB gun was it? They range from potentially lethal to harmless. I wonder if they would have locked her up if she gave the kid a spanking.

I guess the contest for father of the year is already closed. (Hint: someone in Austria won)

What a bitch. Yet another reason why I'm for having to take some sort of test before being allowed to procreate.

Never heard of a lethal BB gun. And as far as bad parenting award, this lady doesn't even come close.

"Shooting your daughter in the thigh with a BB gun for a dollar isn't normal. On meth it is."

Why is she Mother of the Year? She hurt her child and seems to possibly be an alcoholic. She shouldn't get this award and I will boycott the ceremony if she does.
