    In Oakland, CA, on Mon., July 2, a babysitter called 911 reporting a 3 year old boy found face-down in a bathtub. Paramedics arrived and found the boy fully clothed and dry. The little boy showed clear signs of past and current abuse. The babysitter and the child's mother and stepfather were arrested for child endangerment and child abuse. Four siblings are now missing, believed to be hidden with relatives and the parents won't say where they are.


    "Missing are: Paradise Ghaimah-Medinah Mahasin, a 4-year-old girl who suffers from epilepsy;Antwan Alexander Johnson, a 6-year-old boy; Zaniyyah Nyema Johnson, a 7-year-old girl; and Alyajah Marie Johnson, a 16-year-old girl.

    This is not helpful. I am going to assume LE has a pretty good idea of who has them and is hoping the media pressure will surface the kids.

    Why call to report a child in need who wasnt drowned? Was the plan to drown the child? Or just that the child was face down in a dry tub?

    There is something desperately broken about you if you would repeatedly abuse a child. You are a failure as a human being. I cant stand these stories any more....

    I'm wondering if the babysitter saw the abuse and called for paramedics, using any excuse she could think of (such as drowning) just to get help? I guess I'm only hoping there was someone with a bit of kindness in them in that house....I'm probably wrong.

    That was my first thought too.
