Arrests made in child abuse case

Posted By on Thu, Apr 5, 2012 at 9:44 AM

Little Rock police announce that the mother of a two-year-old boy and her boyfriend have been arrested on charges related to abuse of the child — bruises and burns all over his body from forehead (where a burn mark resembled that of an iron) to his testicles and a possible broken arm. Police acted on a report originating in a tip from an Alma housing agency who alerted police to what appeared to be an injured child.

The report is gruesome.

Police said Ronnie Canada was charged with first-degree battery and first-degree endangering the welfare of a minor. Tiffany Bray was charged with permitting abuse of a minor and first-degree endangering the welfare of a minor. The child is in state custody now.

UPDATE: LRPD reports the couple was investigated in Joplin, Mo., for suspected abuse but no charge was filed and they retained custody.

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.
