Kentucky woman open fires at two children she was babysitting. I don't think she understands the concept of "babysitting."

Courtesy of LEX 18: 

Deputies say a Whitley County babysitter started shooting at the children she was watching. When officials arrived on scene, they say the loaded gun was still in her hand. 

Police say two 8-year-olds ran into the street in the middle of the night and ended up at the home of a neighbor. That's where they told the people inside their babysitter was shooting at them. 

According to an arrest citation, Lorie Cornett was watching the two children this past Sunday at her home on Skaggs Branch Road. Police say they were told at around 11:15 that night the two kids came running to another home on Skaggs Branch, asking the people to call police. 

Deputies say Cornett told the children she was going to kill them. 

When deputies arrived at Cornett's home, they say she opened the door holding a cocked and loaded pistol, leading authorities to believe that the children were telling the truth. 

"The deputies took the gun and it had two spent cartridges in it and three empty cartridges were laying on the table inside. The kids were not hit fortunately, but they went through a lot," Sheriff Colan Harrell told LEX 18.

The woman blamed the incident on her mixing of medications with alcohol, and claimed she did not even realize the children were with her.  (Really? Then why was she shooting at them?)

You know growing up my mom worked two jobs and and I had my share of really bad babysitters. But I have to say that even the abusive ones never actually tried to shoot me.

Gee I wonder how the NRA will spin this?

"The only thing that makes a bad kid go to bed on time, is a good babysitter with a gun."

Should look great on their next bumper sticker.

(H/T to Raw Story.)

    Oh, give the Faux bobbleheads a few minutes, I'm sure they'll come up with some rationalization about how those kids had it coming...

    1. How about ....children being babysat must be armed!

    That woman has Betty Davis eyes.

    Who would leave their children in the care of someone who drinks alcohol, takes mind-altering medication and owns a gun?

    One person tried to sneak a shoe bomb on board a plane ten years ago. And ever since then we all have to take the precautionary measure of having our shoes inspected by TSA before we board a plane.

    Meanwhile our children are being terrorized, hurt and killed by guns every single day in this country. But don't you DARE think about any kind of gun precautions, because our right to carry lethal weapons is far more important than the lives of our children.

    I really do f***ing despair.

      You probably lived in the wussy era of "free love". As Antonin Scalia says, "Ask a hippie!"

    2. Anon 6:31 my sitter would pop tons of popcorn, invite her friends over and let me play poker with them. I did win about ten dollars in nickels that summer, but no one tried to shoot me.

      My Dad was a cop who was a "Teetotaler" who would win the bottle of booze prize in every door prize or raffle prize he was entered into. He had a well stocked booze cabinet that just seemed to grow and grow...

      We had a babysitter who was a younger cop just out of the US Army who had free reign to consume his choice of Dad's Liquor stock when he baby sat for us. He could hold his well and he would put down quite a bit of it... LOL

      But he was quite good with handling the 6 kids and my best times were all of us learning to play Blackjack & Poker. LOL

      We got to stay up a little later, but when bedtime came we went to bed there was no if ands or buts about it.

      We were a tough bunch and the local neighborhood girls would end up crying trying to babysit us, This younger cop had it covered and we couldn't wait for mom & dad to go out again...

    Medications? Meth?
    Alcohol? Moonshine?
    My family lived in the hills and hollows of KY for generations and thank goodness, the last remining aunt passed away a couple of years ago. The area has been taken over by meth makers and dealers. You couldn't pay me to go back to the hillside that I spent many summers playing on.

    Oh. Well all righty then.

    EVERY good NRA member knows enough to arm the children BEFORE the babysitter comes over.

      My first thought.

    4. Boscoe9:25 AM

      yeah, I'm waiting to hear the story about the drunk black person who answered the door with a gun in their hand and weren't shot on sight. Or even tazered, apparently. It's hard for that to not be a reasonable person's first thought reading a story like this. Unless you're a conservative. More proof that truth has a liberal bias, I guess.

      Awe all the dumb liberals banding together to push a bullshit agenda, so cute.

      Obama has messed up race relations so badly with the games played by his admin for the black vote, you won't see another black democrat near the WH in 50 yrs.

    7. Anonymous1:07 PM

      12:56 is, not surprisingly, spewing Trump talking points.

      Are you denying you are repeating Trump's talking points about when we will have another Black president, 1:47?

      Are you a Trump fan?

      Still talking about Trump 1:59, why? You are the only one here that apparently has knowledge of Trump.

    12. Anonymous3:02 PM

      The talking point about the POTUS and no Black person in the White House for generations came from Trump. I'm curious if you are a Trump supporter since you copy him with such enthusiasm.

    13. Anonymous3:29 PM

      I copy nobody 3:02. Nobody. I have only written what is generally the 'temperature on the ground' so to speak. It is more than obvious the damage Obama has done to race relations by his lies and pandering. And this is damage he has done to the democrat party in the long run.

      Again, you seem to be the one with Trump knowledge. I have very little knowledge of what Trump has said or done other than some of what has been in the headlines. Figure it out the answer to your stupid demand/question yet dumbass?

    14. Anonymous4:18 PM

      So, I'm guessing the damage W did to race/cultural relations with his lies and pandering means we won't have a white president for generations. No, it's only the Black guy, right?

      Exactly where on the "ground" are you taking this "temperature?" I'm guessing it's with a rectal thermometer.

    Aw, c'mon. Nothing teaches a kid good reflexes and survival skills like having a gun shot at them. This is a great idea for a NRA camp.

  11. Anonymous8:00 AM

    It's fine, it's fine - She was just 'standing her ground' when those kids wouldn't go to bed at the time she told them to. 8 year olds are way out of control these days so you should ALWAYS be armed. The NRA should really step up and get that lady some lessons so she doesn't miss next time, I mean really!

      "This is going to be very hard to believe, a shocker for just so many people, but Bristol Palin said something kind of ignorant and dangerous, something potentially harmful to the youth of this great country, and we will not, even for a moment, stand for it. So let's not put off the inevitable any longer, let's just dive straight on into the depths of Bristol's stupidity.

      On her blog, Bristol discussed the feelings that she had upon reading Iggy Azalea's quotes about plastic surgery in Seventeen. Oddly enough, she didn't discuss how inappropriate was that Iggy was discussing the virtues of plastic surgery to Seventeen's young audience. Instead, she ... well, here:"

    The NRA will of course say that all children of babysittable age should be packing : /

    "When deputies arrived at Cornett's home, they say she opened the door holding a cocked and loaded pistol, leading authorities to believe that the children were telling the truth"

    What astute and observative deputies! After reading and seeing cops behaving badly, killing innocent people because they can, how refreshing it is to read about deputies who didn't believe the kids, because we all know kids LIE, right?
    Because a drug and alcohol mixing nutjob greeted them at the door with a loaded gun in her hands.

    What I'd like to know is what, exactly, did the parents see in this woman that they "trusted" her with their kids? The eyes and smirk in her mugshot are a dead give away. She's got those dead "Stoner" eyes with nothing behind them.
    I wouldn't trust her to water my aspidistra, let alone sit for my kids. Who, in their right mind, takes a gun, alcohol and drugs with them to babysit kids? Am I missing something?


Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
