    TX - Joshua Thorne, 23 mos, dies of head injury, Arlington, 11 July 2007

    ARLINGTON, Texas A 24-year-old Texas mother is in jail after she treated her 2-year-old son's head injury with a Popsicle instead of calling 9-1-1.
    Ebony Thorne's son Joshua later died of the injury.
    Arlington police said the boy fell eight feet down a U-shaped stairwell in Thorne's apartment Wednesday morning. Investigators said instead of calling for an ambulance, Thorne placed a Popsicle on her son's head and put him to bed.

    this explains it

    ARLINGTON -- Ebony Thorne smoked a joint at 10 p.m. Tuesday; two hours later she took two Tylenol PMs and fell asleep, an arrest warrant affidavit says.
    The 24-year-old mother of four woke about 5 a.m. Wednesday to a loud "thump" and her son Joshua's cries. She figured that the toddler, who would have turned 2 this month, had fallen from the top stairs in her split-level apartment, dropping about eight feet to the first floor, according to the affidavit.
    By early afternoon, the child was pronounced dead. Police arrested Thorne on Wednesday evening on suspicion of injury to a child.
    She remained in the Arlington Jail on Thursday; bail was set at $25,000.

    Investigators found him with black eyes; small human bite marks on his left arm, chest and face; unknown contusions on his nose; swelling on the left side of the back of his head; and dried blood on his nose and mouth, the affidavit states.

    Police also found what appeared to be feces on the wall in the stairwell, possible bloodstains on a pillow on the living room couch and on a towel in the upstairs hall, and what appeared to be remains of a marijuana cigarette under the couch in an ashtray

    Obviously there's a reason the grandmother had custody.

    It's idiots like this that give us young mothers a bad name.

    Who would ever let her be alone with them? I mean, LOOK at her, she meets not even the minimum standard her own Mother could possibly have. Their negligent too! The Mother -MURDERER didn't even have custody. The people in the circle need to be charged too when this stuff happens, so it stops!

    From the article:

    Thorne's four children -- a 5-year-old girl, a 3-year-old boy, Joshua and a 10-month-old girl -- were being cared for by family members because of "drug use in the home on the part of the parents that contributed to neglectful supervision issues," CPS spokeswoman Marissa Gonzalessaid.

    So, she had these three and the almost two-year old who died. . . .

    I guess we know what she's good for and it ain't taking care of kids. When will these idiots realize that birth control is there for a reason??????

    The person who left those kids alone in her custody should be charged. She wasn't supposed to be left alone with them yet she was. Irresponsible! IMO

    Who was suppsed to be watching the children with her? Was it the father or did the grandparents let her have a visit w/o supervision? Plus why in the hell would the father call the grandmother before 911?

    All I can think of is they did not call 911 because they weren't supposed to be alone with the kids and they would have gotten in trouble. Oh, cry me a freakin' river. I hope ALL of them are brought up on charges. Unbelievable. Just can't say that enough.

    How in the Sam Hell did she think a popsicle was going to fix a head injury?

    24? She looks more like 54, and used up. Trash should've closed her legs before she extruded the first one.
