Oh that poor little boy didn't deserve this. He should suffer the same way the boy did... I'm tired of our hard earn money paying for these idots to sit in jail...Get rid of them once and for all.

<quoted text>Are you kidding me??? There has to be more to this story.. Like What... It appears the child was struck with hand and fist... This poor boy suffered for God know how long.. What do you mean there has to be more to this story... I am sick about thinking what that poor child went thru!!! Please explain what you meant
I meant exactly as I said. I also caught the story on the 10PM news last night. The man definitely needs to be locked up for life, in solitary confinement, with no parole. He needs to be in a specially designed cell, with pictures of the boy, all over the wall, ceiling, and floor, covered in plastic, so they can't be damaged. May Charles Dickens forgive me. But with the holidays around the corner. He needs a visit from the spirit of that boy to visit him, and ask how, why, and what did he do to deserve this?
I'll give the answer. Nothing. What could a 3yr old do to deserve this? NOTHING!
My thoughts and prayers go to this little boy, all of his family, and friends.

{{That's what I feel, I feel he's a coward and I want him to know that I feel like he's a coward}}

No, Darenee he not just a coward, he's a killer...slightly more important distinction, I'd say.

All of the above. these are the folks who sit in their own crap and wait for 'someone' to come along and fix things for them. These are the people who travel to the mailbox to get their income, and wonder why things aren't getting any better. Bad childhood today leads to bad parenting tomorrow. Can't teach a child what you don't know. Bad choice of a boyfriend today makes a bad babydaddy tomorrow. Unfortunately, the defenseless ones suffer, while mommy gets to get dressed up and go on TV to explain.

they need to give him the death penalty because no child deserves to die like that and there is no way that i can hurt my children like the boys aunt said he is a coward to do something like that to a child.

When I heard this story on the news I just told my four year old that i love him and I would never let anyone ever hurt him. Then I tryed to have the stranger talk with him. I cant imagine any child being put through that much pain. This is so sick.

If this guy gets the death penalty we the tax payers will have to support him for the next 20 years while some scum bag lawyer fights for this guy's right to live. Just put him in a cell with a few big guys and have the CO's walk away. Then all we'll have to pay for is his burial.

I agree child abuse is horrible. If he is guilty, then he needs to be punished. But there has to be more to this story, then what has been printed so far.
Like what??? That he was abused as a child, he has a drug habit, he's a recovering alcoholic? There is NO EXCUSE for what he did to this BABY!!! That's right..BABY! He was 3 years old for God's sake, he couldn't defend himself, he was helpless against an ADULT! There IS NO MORE TO THIS STORY! He was a freakin' bully who beat up an innocent child and in doing that, took his young life. There is no excuse for this. How can you even suggest that there is more? It's bad enough some low life attorney is going to come up with some assinine plea of insanity or something like that. NO! he MURDERED a CHILD! No excuses for this poor excuse for a human being!

I just couldn't hold back the tears looking at that sweet child's face. How can a father do that to his own flesh and blood? What kind of sickness can make a man beat a 3 year old toddler to death? Not only do we have to protect children from predators in the streets, but now even their own home isn't safe. Now you have to watch your own flesh and blood. What a tragedy. There isn't a punishment on earth this man could endure that would be harsh enough. Put a picture of that poor battered baby's body on a prison wall, then sit back and turn this p.o.s. father loose for some real justice.

Yes, this story is absolutely horrible. The father is 40 years old. I don't believe you wake up 40 years old one day and beat a toddler to death out of the blue. He MUST have shown anger issues in the past to do something like this. I would NOT be surprised if the boy was abused previously. In fact, with having a monster like that as a father, I would be shocked if he hadn't. Why didn't the mom or other members of the family not notice bruises on the boy? Especially bathing him or changing his diaper. It was completely irresponsible for the mother to have left her son with this creep. I feel horrible for the boy but not the family.
