Child and dog
Alexis Khan, a South Carolina woman who had been hired to care for Benjamin and Hope Jordan's seven month old son, has been sentenced to one to three years in prison after pleading guilty to abuse charges. The family dog is credited with alerting his family that something was wrong with their babysitter:
"About five months into her being our baby sitter, we started to notice that our dog was very defensive of our son when she would come in the door," Jordan said. "He was very aggressive towards her and a few times we actually had to physically restrain our dog from going towards her.'

The now suspicious parents had a plan.

Hope suggested they place an I-phone under the couch and let the phone record what happens while they were at work.

When the couple got home, they listened to the tape and were horrified what they heard.

"It started with cussing," Jordan said. "Then you hear slap noises and his crying changes from a distress cry to a pain cry. I just wanted to reach through the audio tape, go back in time and just grab him up."

Video interview with the family can be found here.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
