Violent dads who abduct their children never have a good motive. MAURICE JERMAINE HARRIS "allegedly" stabbed the mother of his two daughter, ages 3 years and 9 months, before fleeing with the girls in a car. The girls were found safe several hours later, but the father is still being sought. Just goes to show that father-child together time didn't factor into this at all. It never does. I guess we should just be thankful he didn't stab the kids before abandoning them.
