What's goin on

1) The New Orleans Police Department has issued an arrest warrant for a 37-year-old New Orleans man who allegedly beat his victim with a metal pipe. The suspect, Gregory Sanders, was involved in an argument with the victim on Jan. 4 at the intersection of 7th and Danneel streets, when Sanders armed himself with the metal pipe and struck the victim several times in the head.

2) A Metairie mother was jailed Tuesday for allegedly tossing her 3-week-old son across her living room because he was crying – twice. Shannon Cooper, 21, of 3448 Edenborn Ave., was booked with two counts of second-degree cruelty to a juvenile by detective Solomon Burke with the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office.

3) A juvenile court judge on Wednesday found that New Orleans homicide detectives had enough evidence to arrest two 15-year-olds in the fatal shooting of French Quarter bartender Wendy Byrne, effectively transferring the cases to adult court.

Another brutal beating. Another mother pushed over the edge. Another every-which-ways tragedy for the books. Try not to lose your heads.
