This is getting out of hand. It seems that the more stories I read, the worse it gets. Apparently these people are either too stupid to understand that causing harm to a child of any age is not acceptable or the punishments are not too harsh to worry about.
I have two kids. My kids, like all kids, have needed to be punished at some time. This freak apparently can't understand that a 13 month old cannot be beaten by a grown "man". I did not find details of the case, but I can assume that is what he will be claiming.
Not only should this mental giant be charged, but the parents of the child as well. As a parent, you have to know the person you are leaving your child with these days. I'm sure this guy had shown in the past that he could not handle children. At 10 weeks, there is a short list of reasons that a child cries. If you don't know what those are, or unable to fix those issues, you have no business anywhere near an infant.
Case 3 Warning - This case is very disturbing
This one is by far the worst I have heard in some time. There were so many people who dropped the ball on this one, I don't know were to start. This is something you don't come up with on the spur of the moment. Why the husband didn't notice a change in his wife's behavior is beyond me. Why the other daughter mentioned didn't turn her mother in is unreal. Where was the husband in this instance too? Is it just me, or does it sound like that, from the 4 year old's description, this isn't the first time this happened?
Apparently jail time is just not enough for these people. Child abuse needs to become a federal capital offence. If you cause great bodily harm to a child, you head to death row. Period. These cases will continue to get worse and worse unless we do something about it. We can't hand out licences for childbearing, so we need to make the punishment for mistreating children as severe as possible.
