4-Year-Old Found Wandering Along Busy Virginia Highway

I saw this in the FLS this morning. Few things make me angrier than child abuse. I hate it with a visceral passion, and I feel nothing but utter contempt for those who engage in it.

In short, this made me angry:

Virginia State Police determined he was left there by his mother, 22-year-old Channoah Green, after she became upset with him. They said the Newport News, Va., woman has been charged with child neglect.

The boy was treated at a hospital for cuts and bruises. He was turned over to Fairfax County Child Protective Services. Authorities said the mother is also facing a hit-and-run charge in connection with an accident north of Richmond Tuesday night.

The FLS article had a small quote from a motorist who wished to remain unnamed.

“I said, ‘Why are you out here?’ And he said, “My mommy left me. She was angry and she pushed me out of the car,” the driver, who asked not to be identified, told WJLA-TV.

The article went further to describe that the cuts and bruises the boy received were because the child was frantically trying to get back into the car after the mother had pushed the child out – and the mother drove off.
