Sh*t Parent Alert!  Utah Mom seeks Protection of “Safe Haven” Law when she Abandons her “Rude and ungovernable” 8 year old at a Salt Lake City Hospital Meet 36 year old Kathy Sherrer of West Jordan,… Scroll down to read more!

Meet 36 year old Kathy Sherrer of West Jordan, Salt Lake City, Utah, and definitely in contention for being the dumbest and saddest excuse for a mother on the planet. Yes, that’s her below….

This genius took her eight (8) year old son (he is reportedly one of four siblings, aged aged 4, 8, 12 and 13, and all requiring special needs) to a local Salt Lake City hospital and left him there – yes, she abandoned her 8 year old boy – with a note that read:  “This kid is rude and ungovernable! I do not want him in my house at all!”

After her arrest for child abandonment (a felony) and child abuse (a misdemeanor) on Wednesday, March 9th, 2016 this disgrace of a mother told a local tv station that she was making use of the Utah’s “Safe Haven” law.  The problem is that Utah’s “Safe Haven” law (like most “Safe Haven” laws) only permits a parent to anonymously give up custody of newborn babies (many times up to the first three (3) days of life, and in only nine (9) States more than thirty (30) days after birth – but in no event after eight (8) years) at a “safe space”.

This genius told KSL-TV (you can watch and listen to her by clicking here) that:  “I thought that it was OK that we could drop them off and it was a safe haven place.  I wasn’t sure about the safe haven laws or what it meant… I really did not know any other way to go about it.”

According to the police the young boy reportedly walked up to the reception area of the hospital n February 21 with a note from his mother, which detailed her complaints with him and his name.  The boy also reportedly had light bruising on his right arm from where his mother had allegedly hit him with a spoon.  Hospital authorities contacted police and the boy was then taken into protective custody. 

The mother (I just can’t bring myself to call her by name) reportedly told cops that she was “overwhelmed” with the duties of childcare, as she has four (4) children, aged 4, 8, 12 and 13, all with special needs.  After charging her Salt Lake County District Attorney Sim Gill went on record stating the obvious:  A parent can not abuse the State’s Safe Haven law and randomly leave their child(ren) where they please.  Per Mr. Gill:  “You don’t get to arbitrarily drop children off at certain institutions.  You reach out to that organization, that organization helps process your child, there’s an understanding. Everybody understands what everyone’s role is.  Everyone knows what they’re supposed to do. But you don’t simply say, ‘I’ve had enough and I’m going to drop off this child and no one knows who I am.”‘  

In my (perhaps not so) humble opinion Kathy Sherrer should be the Sh*t Parent of the Year, centerfold.
