Martell, NE - How do you quiet a crying baby? Well, you could feed them, or rock them, or you could give them a homemade tongue piercing. I know the first two choices usually work, but the last one? Heh. You only do something like that if you want to spend some time in a concrete suite with iron landscaping and possibly, just possibly, you hope to be one of the unfortunate few to have their ugly mug grace the front page of the illustrious Dreamin’ Demon. Seriously. It seems like people are killing for a chance to be up here.
I’m sure 22-year old Matthew Wylie is going to shit bricks when he learns he is one of the chosen few for today’s stories. I know what all of you are thinking. How did Wylie get so lucky? Why is he so damn special? Allow me to start by saying right away that it’s not because I accepted any bribes of any sort. Wylie got here the same way all our previous, ahem, winners were chosen. You see, this last Thursday afternoon, Wylie was caring for his girlfriend’s 3-month old baby boy while she was gone.
When his girlfriend returned, she discovered that the baby’s mouth was bleeding, so she and Wylie took the baby to Saint Elizabeth Regional Medical Center for treatment. Hospital authorities realized the infant’s tongue had a 1.8 centimeter cut in it, which is one helluva gash for such a little tongue, and they contacted police. When questioned, Wylie admitted to the investigators that he had pushed his finger down on the infant’s tongue to quiet him, but pushed too hard, and the baby started bleeding. Investigators question his story, but believe Wylie’s actions merit felony child abuse charges. He was arrested and taken to jail.
Wylie’s girlfriend, Tracy Daniel, said Wylie had stepped in as a father for her son. Wylie attended the doctor visits and changed his diapers. Daniel said her son was pretty much back to normal by Saturday afternoon. She also said she is considering ending her relationship with Wylie, but thinks the accusations against him are excessive. “It’s kind of shocking that it would have even happened, “ she said. “He’s never been violent before. He’s shown, you know, that he’s sorry.”Sorry he hurt the baby or sorry he got caught? I don’t know about you folks, but I would kick that penis to the curb faster than a cat can lick its ass if he hurt my baby. I really wish these moms would start protecting what came out of their cooter instead of what they choose to put in it. Oh! And welcome to the front page, Wylie. I’m pretty sure we’ll be hearing more about your sorry ass again sometime in the near future.Tags: babysitter, Child Abuse, Matthew Wylie, Nebraska
