They should throw this piece of garbage in a hole filled with rusty razorblades and throw a truck load of salt on top. Better yet throw his idiotic mother in first and make him watch, and then throw him in.

I dont know if he did this, but if he did then he deserves to get the death sentence. This is just a horrible situation, I am so sorry both of the families and I am praying for them as well!

His Dad should have worn a rubber and saved us the trouble of toasting him. All though his dad or whatever animal that born him was without a brain. Scum, the whole family should hear this childs cries for the rest of their lives. SCUM!

Pretty sweet torres, you showed that little kid who's boss in the hood !
you are a piece of sh*t. I can't believe you would even joke about something like that. This monster took a baby's life. You are just as much a monster for talking like that. I hope you rot in h*ll.

Truly a shame. This poor little boy.
At the risk of being politically incorrect I must say this sweet baby is too far from being alone in this fate. As a society we have trivialized the traditional family, thus little children being exposed to boyfriends and girlfriends of either parent who does not have an emotional stake in the well being of the child.
God help us all.

That still won't be enough punishment. I just can't fathom where people think that they the right to do that to their own flesh and blood. What a worthless piece of ****.

What in the world was this mother thinking leaving her child with her monster? He just moved in 2wks prior...did she not realize that he was jealous of her lil one? With so many headlines about spouses killing children, I would never trust it.
