Man charged after baby found in McPherson Square tent

A man is facing child cruelty charges after his 13-month-old daughter was found alone in a tent in the Occupy DC camp at McPherson Square.

Occupy members told authorities that a baby was alone in a tent at about 10 a.m. Wednesday, said Sgt. David Schlosser, a U.S. Park Police spokesman. Officers found the girl alone in the tent with no adults around. The baby had been alone for at least half an hour, Schlosser said.

A man returned to the park while police were investigating and said he was the baby's father, Schlosser said. The man was charged with attempted second-degree cruelty to children. Schlosser would not release the man's name, saying doing so could identify the child.

It was raining and the temperature was in the mid-40s when officers found the baby, Schlosser said. He said emergency responders examined the girl, who was found to be healthy.

Schlosser said he didn't know whether the man arrested was part of the Occupy DC contingent.


You'll notice that the occupy morons haven't been in the news lately. It's been pretty cold outside lately. So perhaps they took a break. If only they had as much endurance as they had stupidity.
