Like a child

Randy Fisher Jr., 25, and his girlfriend Christy Carver, 21, allegedly had been arguing on Thurs. afternoon.

At some point later she was reportedly walking along the sidewalk holding their 2 month old baby when Fisher allegedly drove his vehicle up on the sidewalk and hit her.

After hitting her with his vehicle, he then drove away. His car was found at a nearby apartment complex and he was arrested.

Carver was treated at a local hospital. The baby was transferred to the Children's hospital with "severe" injuries. Subsequent articles indicate that a nursing supervisor at the hospital has said the child was not a patient there.

I wonder if Fisher even saw the baby? Or did his anger give him tunnel vision to the point that he only saw the focus of his anger? I wonder how he felt waking up to realize that his girlfriend was walking around, but that his child was hospitalized?

But domestic violence is not really a result of anger. It is about control over the spouse or girlfriend. Control to the point that loss of that control can lead to rage. And the person who refuses to submit to that control can end up dead. And so can anyone who stands between them. Like a child.

    Home, does it seem like there is more irrational violence now? I mean, who runs over their child and “baby’s mamma?” Most of this stuff isn’t planned, but seems to be spur of the moment. Which is far more scary, as far as I’m concerned.

    I’ve noticed it too Soobs. I have participated in crime forums for a couple years before I started the blog. And it seems like the murders that happen are getting more violent, and seeming to need less and less provocation. And the murderers seem to be getting younger. (It may be because I am getting older, but I don’t think so).
