i saw it on abc news. its a shame why many parents try to kill their kids.if u dont wont kids . go get urself fixed. male or female. if u have kids and dont wont them. theres ways to give them a home. that will raise the kids the proper way. just dont bring a child into the world . only to try and kill the child. remember the child had no choice. was the mom and dad that created the child. show some true morals and stop being a murderer. or trying to kill ur own child.

It's sad. There are so many couples that would love to adopt a baby. He comes from a good family too, so I am sure his parents are upset as well.

If you knew what happened to him as a boy you would understand a lil about what's wrong with him. His mother used to hook him up to wires and give him shock treatments for punishment. She did much worse than that too. That being said, he knew he couldnt handle the stress of a baby, and he even told his many many girlfriends that. But these girls just go for the pretty bos and dont care. I knew one girl who begged him to get her pregnant, bet she's counting her blessings now.

Im not saying what he did is excusable, but an insanity defense would very likely not only be a way out, but probably is true.

I only know what he claimed to have happened, trur or not it was clear to me he believed it to be true. If it's not that even deepens the depth of his mental illness. I believe bad events c in our childhood cause damage, but it doesnt excuse his actions. Just because you wer abused doesn't give you the right to abuse. I agree he needs to be locked deep away, i think the risk of suicide is high, and the mental illness manifests itself in self abusive and ouwarf abusive tendencies and the traditional criminal system will only make him more damgerous. Especially considering how young he is, 30 years isnt enough time. It should be much longer, so he's too old to father again.

He has always been.. I don't want to say "weird," but very offbeat in a bad way. He was the type that acted like the world owed him something and that he was hot shit. It's a sad thing for a person to be ruined because of abuse as a child (if it even happened to begin with.. I do not know what is true and not true about that) but there he was, continuing the alleged cycle of abuse. Every person has the chance to be who they want to be and make changes for the better, so I really don't feel sorry for him.
Not to mention that he has another child by a different girl. He said that she roofied him and took advantage of him while he was passed out and that's how the first child came to be. Two children at 19.. doesn't this say something about the sex ed programs at the high school? Shouldn't we be teaching our kids how to have SAFE SEX, rather than bringing in the holier-than-thou abstinence crew that nobody listens to?

If he had informed all his girlfriends he couldn't handle the stress of a baby, why exactly did he beg this baby's mother for a second chance and a chance to meet his son?? Why was he trying to talk her into having another baby when this happened? You may think you know him and you probably do better than I do, but you apparently aren't clear on both sides of the story.

Definitely true, but when it came to Dakota I dont think he ever told the truth.

ok. Dakota did NOT tell all this to me or I would have made the smart choice and dumped his ass like a hot potato and none of this would have happened. I find it very convenient that he so cleverly hid all his problems from the people he was living with. Problems that could have given us some sign that he could have done something like this. He told the detective he was terrified to be alone with his son. Why the hell could he not have told the family of the child or even his own family which was at the hospital every chance they got? It was all hidden quite well by him and therefore it was not done because of a mental illness which would make him now know what he was doing to the little boy. Dakota never told the truth to or about anyone. If he didn't want children, why the hell was he trying to get me pregnant again? yes, he's weird and in a VERY bad way. I know he was abused as a child, but it's a conscious decision you have to make on your own. No, I don't think he woke up one day and said "hey I think I'll try to kill my son today" but I also don't think he was unaware of what he was doing. The man loves attention and loves to look like the hero.

You say that, i went to school with the freak, he needs to have the crap knocked outta him, ive never had a good feeling about him, just being near him would make me sick the feelings were so strong so go ahead and defend him, but he needs to have his balls cut off where he cant have a chance of harming anymore children
