Let’s Go to Toys ’R’ Us!

Two children, a 6-year-old and a 7-year-old girl, went to a neighbor’s house in St. Petersburg, Fla., asking for help. They said Daniel R. Stewart, 30, had left them alone at home, though he gave the 7-year-old the means to protect herself: a hunting knife, an axe, and a baseball bat, with instructions to use them for protection “if she needed to.” The neighbor called police. Stewart was booked for felony child neglect, and released on $500 bond. (RC/St. Petersburg Times) ...Sure a 7-year-old needs an axe to protect herself from a 6-year-old. But the knife and bat were overkill.
