Baby needs a third choice

There’s just so much wrong with this

When Mom wears one set of gang colors and Dad wears another, conflict over how to raise the baby can cause irreconcilable differences.

Gee I guess it could, what with all the shooting at each other and stuff.  But how did the cops find out about the Jets/Sharks relationship anyway?

When officers questioned the woman, they learned that the two had been together for four years and were the parents of a child.

When police asked the woman why the two had separated, she said they have “different ideas about how the baby should be raised,” according to a police report.

When officer Daniel Swift asked the woman what she meant by that, she said that the two belong to different street gangs.

“They could not agree on which gang the baby would claim,” Swift said.


I’m trying to decide the worst part of this story.  The fact that these two were from different gangs but living together and having kids?  That they fought over which gang the baby should be in?  Or maybe that the mother actually told the cops the real reason for the fight.

I tell ya, stories like this make me really happy never joined a gang….so many tough choices to make.
