Macomb County tackles its child abuse ‘epidemic’

Rash of horrific deadly crimes against young kids spurs action from prosecutor

Mount Clemens, MI— Two 4-year-olds killed by their grandmothers — one drowned in a bathtub, another strangled. A 3-year-old boy stabbed to death in a brutal attack by his mother’s fiance. A 2-year-old girl sexually assaulted and murdered by her stepmother. Authorities allege the disturbing scenarios are reality in Macomb County and among at least 10 abusive crimes involving children ages 6 and younger in less than two years.

While overall cases of abuse and neglect in Macomb County aren’t going up, Prosecutor Eric Smith said the county is experiencing a spike in the severity of its child abuse cases and child deaths nearly tripled in 2010. The annual average of up to two child deaths per year jumped to five.

By the time you finish reading this, 15 children will have been abused; In the next five minutes, 30 more; Within the next hour, 360 more; And by tonight, close to 8,000+ children will have suffered from abuse, 5 of which will die. Child abuse has increased 134% since 1980 and is now considered a worldwide epidemic. The high jump in child abuse deaths and the shocking increase in statistics highlights the frightening lack of public knowledge.
