I've never heard of a metal belt In my opinion that is what is wrong with a-lot of children nowadays no respect for anyone I don't think there is any thing wrong with a whoppin now a beating is different but children need to know that when they do something wrong it is not going to be pleasant But by no means do I think a child should be beat or mistreated! Did the child have to go to the hospital are they okay??

I've never herd of a metal belt either I'm taking it that they ment the metal buckle. And I, like yourself believes that a spanking is needed every now and then but, I do not believe in getting someone else who is not the parent to give this spanking nor do I believe in spanking the child hard enough to send it the hospital or hitting with the metal end of a belt. So like I said I could care less if any of the 3 never get out of jail.

the belt was a metal ring belt. there is no child that deserves to be beat for any reason and this child was he had whelps and the marks from the metal rings on the belt imprinted on his bottom back and legs. this was not the first time it had happened. james bridgett and scott all need to be put under the jail bridgett and scott would call james to come discipline scott's son because he would not listen to them. at the time that this happened they were all drinking doing pills and bridgett was smoking pot and drinking. bridgett is a nut case that needs help. as for the other two they should have never laid a hand on that child or any of the others it has happened with scott and bridgetts other children just never been reported. but mark my words james will be the only one to pull any time scott and bridgett will talk their way out of it and i hope that when bridgett does get out that the mom of the child beats the living mortal hell out of her. all of them should stay in jail for a long time this is something that the child will never forget they dont deserve their children back ever. so anyone that knows scott or bridgett goodpaster well her last name is wilson because they were never legally married keep them away from your kids. they are low lifes.

Yes, it's me, I would like to say that the true story is not in the newspaper... I understand people will believe whatever they want, so honestly there is no reason for going on and on...For the record I passed my drug test. and so did my husband and James. We are not bad people just truly misunderstood.I try to be a good mother.. I would never hurt a child for I see them as God's gifts.. But sometimes they do need to be disciplined no one beat him with a metal belt,nor did anyone ever repeatedly beat him. James is a true family friend he is not a stranger or a bad person.. For the record the boy in question had just went dune-buggy riding the day before, and he was observed wrecking his bike in the creek not once but twice. Somethings can't be logically explained to people, especially those that like drama and ones that have grudges....

You know what is sad?.... People who have nothing better to do with their lives than cause drama for others.... I know bridgett and scott and their kids.... They were wrongly accused of these things...If the so called child was in danger why did the officer go on vacation 2 weeks before they continued with charging them?........ Also if all this happened numerous times why has it only come out now?.........I think you all need to just grow the **** up and get on with your own lives and leave people alone.... Also as for the so called mother of the before stated child....I think SHE had all of this planned from the very start and SHE was just waiting on something to happen so she could take advantage and make both of them look bad..... The boy was traumatized before he came to stay with them.... Now tell me.... Where did he learn to curse his elders... Scream at his elders....... Just be plain out nasty to EVERYONE...... I can just say I knew when I was younger to treat my elders with respect.......So where did he learn all that from?..... Drama is the root off all ********..

he didnt go to the hospital when i saw the bruises on his butt and lower back i took him to social services and filed a report they notified the cops.i read that someone on here said the cop went on vacation...i talked to him almost daily he had to file paperwork with the court house to get the arrest warrant....my son was with me and safe,,,so it didnt get pushed thru as quickly as it should have plus the cop was doing an investigation into it...speaking to the 3 scum bags taking statements etc.i think he did a great job he wanted to make syre he had all the evidence he needed for a conviction.the judge who probated 11 months of their 12 month sentence is the one who screwed up.she is pregnant again with her 5 th child and they felt sorry for her
