Instead, 21-year-old Kim Crawford decided to go apeshit on the little kid. She smacked him in the stomach and back. And we're guessing those weren't love punches.
Over the next five days, Jamar was in brutal pain, vomiting and crying. He'd suffered severe internal injuries. But Crawford refused to take him to a doctor, worried that his bruises would land her ass in jail.
By Friday, his fingers were cold to the touch, so she finally called an ambulance. He would die that evening from an infection from a lacerated pancreas and intestine.
Crawford tried to claim that Jamar had suddenly became ill after falling in the park. But that explanation wasn't consistent with his injuries. She eventually broke down and admitted to hitting the boy, then failing to take him to the doctor to avoid her own arrest.
You won't be surprised that she's been in trouble with the law before. She has a history of arrests for drugs and assault, and the cops have been called to her home 9 times since 2006 over domestic beefs with Jamar's father.
Crawford's now charged with murder and manslaughter.
