Charges: Mom pushed baby, stroller down steps
Minneapolis Star Tribune ^ | May 5, 2011 | MATT McKINNEY

Posted on 05/06/2011 8:34:41 AM PDT by ConservativeStatement

A woman pushed a stroller carrying her infant down a flight of stairs at a Minneapolis light rail station Tuesday during an argument with her boyfriend, police said.

The baby boy survived with injuries that were not life-threatening, including scrapes to his cheek, thigh and scalp.

"You already got a 12- and 14-year old you don't give a [expletive] about, and now you don't give a [expletive] about this one!" Lisa Marie Martin, 26, of Minneapolis, yelled, according to charges. "I'm gonna push this one down the steps. I'm pregnant again!" She then pushed the stroller down stairs at the Lake Street station, authorities alleged.

She should leave this to the pros, like Richard Widmark.

If she doesn’t want that baby, I’ll take him and provide him a good home with lots of love.

“I’m pregnant again...”

I hope and pray that these children are allowed to be adopted by a couple who would love them. A GOOD parent would do anything and everything to prevent their child from getting a boo boo much less something serious. There is no future for this woman’s children... none at all IMHO.

She’s flaunting that beaver around a little too often, it seems.

She should have left her beaver out of the situation entirely. Then she wouldn't have these problems.

Nice. Time to give her a slap on the wrist and raise her welfare benefits!

I’m adopted and am against adoptions in most to all cases. Help this woman out by keeping her with her children no matter what. Give her some counseling, some support at home and a halfway decent husband.

The children will be forever grateful. They don’t care if she is a drug addict, an abuser, or has zero IQ. The only thing the children want is to be with their mother.

She looks like she might be American Indian and there are large number of them in Minneapolis.

She's just trying to do a one woman show of the Odessa steps scene from the Battleship Potemkin.

It’s the 21st century and we already know how NOT to have babies.

Irresponsible children HAVING children. Nice.

You beat me to it. So here is the sequence instead. Einsenstein was genius.

I am sorry you dislike adoption. My two best friends in life were both adopted and I’m very grateful their birth mothers were big-hearted and wise, allowing another family to raise them. My dearest friend and her husband have two adopted daughters as well.

When done right it’s a blessing for all. Unfortunately a lot of children adopted through foster care are traumatized at very early ages (fetal alcohol syndrome, RAD, AD&D, heroin and/or cocaine addictions, untreated ear infections, etc.) and it takes a lot of special parents willing to raise them.

I hope this baby and the one on the way are removed and placed with normal, loving parents.

Maybe the stupid beatch should keep her knees together if she doesn’t like the results. Or better yet, go have her tubes tied. I’ve run out of patience for people who treat their offspring with less concern than a toad. I’ve known several people unable to have children who would be the best parents a kid could dream of.

Let me guess she is alos on welfare? People like this one makes me sick. There are people in ths world who would give anything for a child and this one tries to kill the one she has.

You must;ve hd a bad way to go being adpoted because I know many other adopted kids who feel much different than you do and are very glad they were adopted once they met their real parents.

What’s the Big Deal: she is only exercising her “choice”, albeit she may catch grief for cutting Planned Parenthood out of the loop.
