|Sulmin and Blade's 3 children|
Police report that over in Stone Mountain, Georgia, a 4-year-old little girl accidentally shot herself on June 4th and her fucked up parents didn't take her to the hospital for treatment because they didn't want to get in trouble. Gwinnett County Police say that the father (if you can call him that), Thomas Sumlin, convinced his girlfriend, Tyshonna Mercedez Blades, that the child's injuries were not severe enough to warrant treatment. Sumlin decided that he would be able to treat the gunshot wound himself.

The incident occurred when the couple and their 3 children were staying at the classiest of motels, Days Inn. While being diligently watched by her 21-year-old, so-called mother, the little girl found a handgun and reportedly shot herself in the stomach. Luckily, the bullet only grazed her, causing a deep gash. Blades called Sumlin for advice instead of doing what most people would do in an emergency and calling 911. Sumlin determined that proper medical attention was not needed over the phone and told her not to worry about it as he could use his limited medical skills and play doctor himself. Presumably, he immediately went to the nearest hardware store to pick up some duct tape and super glue before heading to the room to tell the little girl walk it off.
The couple denied the girl medical treatment for 2 whole days until, thankfully, a family member with more common sense called police to report that a 4-year-old baby is walking around with a FUCKING GUNSHOT WOUND to her stomach. Sumlin, with his vast intelligence, advised police that he didn't think the wound serious enough for a hospital trip. He also stated that, although the gun was not his and he had never seen it, that he was afraid that he and his lady love would get in trouble. According to him, although he was not present at the time, that after finding the loaded gun behind the bed the little girl shot herself, became scared and dropped the weapon. I imagine the little girl got scared. She had JUST FUCKING SHOT HERSELF IN THE STOMACH. Sumlin also stated, "This happened by accident, and I don't want any problems to come, but it turned into something way different." Ya think? Fucking moron.

I don't think police are buying his "these ain't my pants" type excuse due to the fact that they found a matching holster, magazines and possibly the bullet that pierced the small child's stomach, in Sumlin and Blade's home. I guess their next excuse is that whoever had rented the motel room before them also used to live at their house. Sumlin and Blades were charged with second degree cruelty to a child and released on a $7,500 bond. Sumlin's mother, Deanna Edwards, was also arrested for her involvement. The couple's 3 children are now in state care. We'll see how long they stay there before they're sent home with a case of band aids and neosporin.
