In Moultrie, Georgia, on Friday July 19th, 26-year-old Karen Lashun Harrison gets into an argument with another woman outside of a beauty supply store. She is seen standing in the parking lot, holding her 3-month-old baby, having a heated discussion, like the trash that she is. There is no telling what they are talking about but the unidentified woman is clearly tired of hearing her shit talk and whacks her in the face with a bag of goodies she had probably just purchased. Immediately, all hell, and beauty supplies, breaks loose. The altercation gets physical and the baby is what some would say “dropped”. The two women continue to fight, completely having forgotten about the child, that now lays on the hard pavement. Bystanders try and break up the fight, and pick up the injured baby.
The mother of the child, not surprisingly, tries to save herself and takes her child to the hospital, not after the incident, but the next day. And instead of showing guilt or remorse, she blames it on someone else, trying to cover it up as an accident, telling the police that the baby fell from Carneata Clark’s arms, a family friend. The child dies due to brain injuries and Harrison is charged with felony murder, cruelty to children and simple battery. Clark, who corroborates the story, is charged with false statements and obstruction of an officer.
How could one be so careless while holding a baby, especially their own. At the very least now the baby doesn’t have to grow up with such a terrible mother and probably having a ridiculous name, like Carneata.
