I stand corrected. Way back in January, I was convinced that this slimeball was a shoo-in for Worst Parent of the Year. Well, not so fast, sparky. Consider these lovelies:

A heated dispute between two parents about what street gang their son should join resulted in one parent threatening to kill the other, Commerce City police say. The center of the battle is a 4-year-old boy. The child was born to parents, who are not married, when they were about 15 years old, said Sgt. Joe Sandoval of the Commerce City Police Department.

You can read the whole sad story here. Fair warning: As bad as the story itself is, what’s almost worse are many of the predictably repulsive comments left by Denver Post readers.
