Florissant, MO (KSDK)- A 22-year-old North St. Louis man was indicted earlier this month for allegedly killing a child in his care.

Zachary Cook of Florissant was indicted June 15 on second-degree murder charges in connection with the death of three-year-old Austin Vietor.

Officers working the case said Vietor was in Cook's care on the evening of May 5. Cook allegedly became frustrated with the child while trying to discipline him, shook the boy and then threw him to the ground, causing trauma to the boy's head. Vietor died from his head injuries a few days later.

they should just shoot him,first in the knee, then the elbo, then the groin, and then come back in 24 hours and shoot him in the head.

If this kind of logic doesn't scare the shit out of you,then I don't know what will. People like this have all the same privileges that you and I have. They drive,they sit on juries,they vote,ergo Obama. Following this clowns logic,the little victim was in the wrong place,and should have been elsewhere, and then this would have never happened. Watch out people,they live next door.

Gee, you certainly showed how well your thought processes work too.

Yes, people like you have the same privileges as the rest of us.
Sad, scary and wonderful isn't it?

I assume by your slipping in "they vote,ergo Obama" that you find disapproval in the choice the majority or Americans made in selecting Mr. Obama and Mr. Biden over Mr. McCain and Mrs. Palin.

Tying that choice so many made in political representation to one persons somewhat skewed views about a particular child abuse case clearly shows that your thinking is as out-of-touch with reality as the person about whose post you are complaining.

Watch out people...this guy may also live next door to you!

OK, Troll, give it a rest. I realize school is out and you don't have much to do, but trying to bait people into inflammatory arguments just for fun when the subject is this serious is your behaving like a jerk. No be a good little boy and go help mommy with the dishes or something.
In regards to the incident, child abuse, to me seems to be getting worse and there seems to be little to be done about it. I find it very hard to believe that when something of this nature occurs it is the "first time". Where are the neighbors, friends, family in all this? You can't convince me that someone hasn't known that such stuff was going on before the child was killed.
Are we really, as a society so calloused, so scared to get involved that we just look the other way and when it comes to this we offer useless condolences and fantasy violent alternatives?
I'm asking myself these questions as well, am I going to be a part of helping to solve violence towards children (in general) or sit on my butt and pretend it isn't my problem?

Great, just great. Take the death of a child and try to work it into your political, and perhaps prejudicial agenda. Nice moral view of a tragedy.

BTW, what are you doing besides alluding to the fact that the person who killed the child voted for Obama or anyone? You have absolutely no proof of that nor of the extremely faulty premise that persons who commit crimes even vote. For all you know the guy was a campaigner for the right wing candidates. After all, Ted Bundy, the most prolific serial killer in the U.S. was an aide to the Republican governor of Oregon, a caucus leader at several local and national Republican conventions/meetings. Given your assessment that must mean all serial killers were/are conservative Republicans.

I taught this man in high school. Although he has a terrible temper, I feel true sorrow for everyone involved, including Zach. He will pay a dear price for his actions. Regardless of his sentence, he will pay the rest of his life as he can never get his actions out of his memory.

I use to date Zack off an on an IV known him forever an I know that all that was a accident I know he would never intentionally do anything like that I wish I could do something to help him I know he feels terrible an will probably be afraid to pick up a child again it is terrible what happened to that lil boy I don't know what would I do if that happened to me but accidents happened an I believe that was an accident an nothing more
