Well I guess since he is sorry we should just forgive him. I worked for the treasury secretary.

Stop being so hasty? Sounds like you need to practice what you preach, there brother. Look at what you did to your child in your "hastiness". Dumb a$$.

Stories like this really make me sad.

There are SO many options for parents that can not handle being...PARENTS.

Children do not deserve to be hurt at the hands of anyone, let alone their parents. The two people that are supposed to be trusted the most.

I know there is no punishment that the judge could pass down that would ever be good enough for the family....but I hope he does receive time and does not just get a slap on the wrist. that seems to happen way too often lately.

My thoughts and prayers are with the child and family:)

Why does the headline say he is 'sorry'? Are they implying he is not sorry?

Your side????? Your son is blind because of you. He will never see the snow or the color of flowers in spring, or the beautiful fall colors here in Michigan. You want us to listen to your side?...... You have no side.

Saying he is sorry for what happened to the baby is not the same thing as actually being sorry for what he did. Big difference. If you cannot control your temper, you probably should not have kids.

How could he possibly have any "side of the story" that would make a difference?? OMG!! The child was two months old!!

I think it's ok if we all want to be hasty & judgmental! Two months old!! What is wrong with that man?

You hurt a child...you get 30 minutes in a room with 5 guys who will summarily beat you until you cannot feel any longer. Then you get a chance to recover a bit, and then they do it all over again. And over and over and over...etc etc etc...

You KILL a child, you should hang from the neck until dead! the you should be thrown out side the city for animals to eat your stinking flesh!

Let the bashing begin....

By the by...WHO CARES if you're sorry! "Sorry" NEVER helps after the dirty deed is done...also..."sorry " only represents your character...PERIOD, Idiot!

This guy is a douche. I really hope the good old boys in prison find out why he is there when he gets locked up. They're going to tear him apart, and he'll deserve every minute of it.

You are totally correct..I hope the courts never allow him near the child again..and let him say how sorry he is while a bunch of us posters cut his nut** off with a very dull butter knife

He is just "sorry" that he was caught !!
Evidently, this was not the first time the child had problems.
He will get what he deserves in prison.
Unless the court does what hey did to the men who killed someone out side the margarita grill downtown and let them off!
he better hope he get's the same judge

That little boy has to suffer the rest of his life so should this IDIOT (can't even call him a man or a dad)! What the he** are they letting him roam the streets for..his "arse" should be sitting in PRISON until his sentencing!!!!! I wouldn't be surprised if he leaves the state and tries hiding!

Sad thing is he will probably get probabtion. Stuff like this drives me crazy. They need to make an example out of him. There are people out there that can't have children and this geeky looking guy pulls this. This poor kid never stood a chance. Now he has to pay for this idiot's mistakes. All he can say is I'm sorry - are you kidding me.....
