A sign of the times in today's moral meltdown. As crime becomes unthinkably vicious, a more liberal attitude toward criminals is winning out here and around the world. Sodom and Gamorra? Perhaps.!

What stupid agency certified this hunk of doodoo to be a foster mother? Didn't they do a background check? How come the worker didn't see any signs of abuse? This woman was obviously fostering for the money and probably to get Section 8 Housing or some sort of Rent Subsidy. I know that Section 8 from Texas can be transferred to New York.

To the neighbors--How come you didn't call the police ?

She wasn't an actual foster mother to Kyle. She was a friend of the biological mother's watching him and supposed to be taking care of him.

There is absolutely no leadership from the top down. There is no inspection and review, no public scrutiny, no glasnost.

We need a perestroika immediately.

It's the gradual, inexorable lowering of the bar. In these "communities," the pool of fit parents has shrunk so much that these sub-humans find themselves with responsibilities that far exceed their capacity.

and the neighbors saw this child sitting outside in the cold in February with only a t-shirt on and did not become outraged? What kind of people DO NOT report such obvious dangerous situation? a 3-year old? My GOD! I am not understanding how this kind of neglect can happen in full view of so many.

exactly.but i will say this you neighbors who saw this child in less clothing,i do hope you live with guilt ,cause if one of you stepped up to the plate he might be alive today.as for the to inhuman creeps,who did this horrible crime,i hope you suffer the worst imaginable way possible.an eye for an eye ,except this case i would hope they tie you down,and slowly slice you up from haed to toe with a razor blade,till you die of shear pain!

There will never be enough justice for this child and all of the other silent victims of child abuse.
I hope the child's soul left this earth long before his body gave up its hold on life. He is without pain and with his father in heaven. For those who have faith pray for their souls for nothing we can do to them on this earth will ever be worse than what waits for them on the otherside.
Rest in peace sweet child.

Nice of these neighbors to talk to reporters now, but they couldn't bother calling the cops when this poor child was out in the cold with super mom screaming at him. And why didn't the city know she had a warrant out from Texas?? Don't they screen people before placing helpless children in their clutches???

Exactly...every one of those neighbors who saw and did nothing should wallow in guilt for their inaction...

also, the foster mother abandoned 5 other foster kids in Texas - 6 years ago! Yet NYC ACS sees fit to give them another life to ruin? Or in this case, a life to end, which is precisely what they did...whatever happened to a little something called the "background check?" keep up the "good" work ACS...this is the entity that is covering up injuries to foster kids all over the city at the hands of their foster parents, and refusing to give their real parents any information, yet refusing to give the kids back to parents who have been undergoing therapy, etc., as was ordered in their cases...this was all over the news a couple of weeks ago...yet this same entity saw fit to give this particular crack-ho another life to ruin...

Beat these two people on the street with cameras rolling.

Jail is too easy for these animals.

So sad that a child is a punching bag.

Okay, this woman had a warrant out for her in Texas for treating children like trash, but she was given this child to foster. Doesn't anyone check? Then this poor child is destroyed and the neighbors who saw him sitting outside in the winter in shorts and a t-shirt, heard the yelling, saw him become expressionless and numb ARE SURPRISED! Wake-up people!
