The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil,
but because of those who look on and do nothing.

Aurelia Gallardo

Aurelia Gallardo might just have a problem with her temper, as evident by the fact that she was reported for trying to push someone into oncoming traffic, then shoving the person into a parked car, and then yelling things like "You are dead to me" and "You are a slut." to the person. 

What makes Gallardo's case so much worse is that the person she was abusing in public, both physically and mentally- was her own four year old daughter.

t's pretty outrageous when a parent loses composure to that degree," said police Sgt. Brian Loyd of the child abuse investigation unit in a story for Friday's online edition of the Austin American-Statesman. "We see some bad stuff on our unit, but this is new for us."

Once Gallardo boarded the bus, according to the affidavit, the bus driver said the woman was "yelling every four-letter word known" at the 4-year-old and was telling the girl that "CPS would take her away and that no one would want her."

Honestly, we can only hope that CPS does take this child, and then places her in a home where she can be safe from the sort of 'love' her mother seems to dish out.

Full story.
