*sigh* Here I am, writing yet another story of an innocent child murdered by their mother’s boyfriend. This time, the victim was a 10 month old baby girl by the name of Taliqa Fields. On July 1st last year Taliqa’s mother, Zoe Harman, went out, leaving her baby in the care of her boyfriend, 22-year-old Louis Burdett. At 12:47pm Zoe rang Louis to tell him she was meeting up with an ex boyfriend in McDonalds. Louis didn’t like that very much, and within FOURTEEN MINUTES of the phone call, Louis called 999 to report that Taliqa had ‘gone limp’. Zoe must have known something was up from the phone call, because she rushed home to find an ambulance outside her home. Taliqa was taken to hospital but died the next day. She had suffered a fractured collarbone as well as swelling and bleeding on the brain.
It later emerged that Louis, already pissed that his girlfriend was actually taking to another guy (how dare she! *rolls eyes*), became even more enraged when Taliqa interrupted his video game. He decided that the best outlet for his anger was his girlfriends innocent baby girl.
According to doctors, Taliqa was subjected to a ‘sustained’ assault, and there was evidence she had been violently shaken and slammed into a hard surface. On November 9th this year, Burdett was sentenced to life in prison and must serve at least 13 years behind bars. Hopefully the other prisoners will decide that Louis is the best outlet for THEIR anger and will subject him to what he put this innocent baby through. There is NO excuse for child abuse. If you’re pissed, punch a pillow! Hell, punch a wall if you feel like it! The one thing nobody should EVER be punching is a baby not even a year old. What a pathetic little scumbag. I hope he rots.
