I am hoping that this boy makes a full recovery. But, I have to wonder a couple of things, was this man the mother's boyfriend for years or just a couple of months??? If it was just a few months then you should never introduce your child to any partner until you really know that person. I am not sure who actually hurt this boy but the truth always comes out one way or another!!!

I have to wonder WTF is up with the MOTHER? What was that crazed, seemingly unmedicated, overly ANGRY OUTBURST on TV all about? Get out of our lives? Get away from our house? The media did not HURT her son--they are merely following a story OF INTEREST to anyone with a HEART. Excuse me, tootsie, why don't you worry about your KID and stop worrying about what the media might report? Who knows, maybe the mother beat the kid....and the boyfriend IS innocent????? I just found MOMMY's behavior VERY STRANGE. If that were MY five year old, I wouldn't even be SEEING the media, speaking to them, or noticing the cameras--because my butt would be parked by MY CHILD's BEDSIDE AT THE HOSPITAL. Something is fishy there with that Baby Mama!!!!!!! If it ain't the boyfriend who did it, that raging mother is where I'd look NEXT.

First and foremost, I hope and pray the little boy fully recovers.
I noticed the same thing, the extreme rage in the Mother. The boy, it has been reported, has other injuries on his body in different stages of healing.?????? what up with that?

You are absolutely right! When I saw her on tv I was thinking whoa wait a minute she is way to defensive. Why is she screaming at the media like that unless she is guilty herself.
whats up with that

I also pray for little Peter's recovery. But I am with smelling a rat. When I saw her on tv I thought whoa she's being way to defensive and screaming at the media like that just made me think she is so guilty of something, especially when it was said he had bruises in different stages of healing. I would hope she didn't but I think she had to know something or even be the one putting those bruises on that child.
