According to Fox News, a 2 month old girl was burned in a microwave in Galveston, Texas. The dad of the girl said he was under a lot of stress and decided to put her in the microwave. The 2 month old girl was only in the microwave for about 20 seconds. When the father made the call to 911 he said that he had tripped with a pot of hot water and burned the little girl. The girl’s mother, Eva Marie Mauldin, said that the 19 year old father had some mental disability. She also said that he would never do something like that and that Satan persuaded him to put their daughter into the microwave. The girl’s father, Joshua Mauldin, is being charged with a felony injury to a child. If he was guilty then he could go to prison for 99 years.
I personally think that this guy should definitely go to jail until his death or possibly the death penalty, and that it is no accident to put a baby in the microwave!!! And even if this father had a mental disability then he should be watched when he is with his child so this doesn’t happen again, and he should also get lots of mental help. I also think that the mother is trying to cover up the crime by saying that Satan was possessing him.

Hi my name is Carl and I will be giving you breaking news from around the U.S. and around the world. An upcoming debate is if we should lower the drinking age in the U.S. Many people think it is a bad idea because there are many reports of underage drinking that causes severe accidents while driving. Others think that the drinking age should be lowered because then when they become 21 they go binge drinking and don’t know how to handle alcohol. I think that the drinking age should not be lowered to 18 because if they do lower it then they 18 year olds will take advantage of it.
