Illinois toddler injured by razor blades glued to playground equipment

An Illinois playground was bobby-trapped with straight-edged razors glued to equipment frequented by children, WQAD.com reported.

The sharp razors were discovered by parents at Millennium Park in East Moline, near the state’s western border with Iowa. The parents say their 2-year-old son was cut by one of the blades on the monkey bars.

"He said, 'Ouch,'" Sally Jenks, the boy's mom, told the station. "He started bleeding and we looked and they [the razors] were everywhere."

Dollars to donuts it is some teenager with a demented idea about what is funny. If the police do a records check of local drug stores and wal marts, they’ll find some zit-faced kid buying razor blades, energy drinks, and beef jerky.

Sometimes I wish this could just end quickly instead of long and drawn out.

The Lord loves a hangin'.

In the old days, the culprit(s) would have been found, God willing, and done the Spandau Ballet immediately, if not sooner.

Now, if the "Justice"-Imprisonment Complex feeds the culprits into the hopper, it will be decades of siphoning off taxpeasant money to "rehabilitate" them...

Wake up, people.

I bet a thousand to one, it was done by 1 or more of 0dumb0’s black knock-out sons, as in “if 0dumb0 had a son, he would look like teen-age thug criminal Trayvon Martin.”

Here's a Google Street View, presumably of the playground equipment that was vandalized. You can zoom out to see the context, which looks like 1950's Dick and Jane territory, but who knows.

Probably done by some liberal that wants to ban playground equipment “for the children”

Was it Bob Grant who said "it's sick out there, and getting sicker."?

Repent, America. This state will be the death of me.

Muslims like box cutters and razor blades.

I remember reading of an American Indian form of torture where they would slowly skin the victim alive.

Totally appropriate in this case.

A two year old on the monkey bars? Sounds a little weird to me.

Time for some hidden cameras, if this nonsense happens again.

I believe his mom (or dad) was holding him up there, which explains why he wasn't cut too deeply.
