Why is the mother in this case not also charged? She knew he abused the kids and still allowed him to be there.

OK authorities say the mother was at a beauty salon at the time of the child’s death. Where was she the first time the same child was abused, allegedly by the same male, and left in a body cast? Allegedly they felt strongly enough to take the child into custody at that time and force her to prove herself fit before returning him then, yet now all the authorities can say is the mother knew the father was rough on his step son but holds no responsibility for his death. I am sorry if I am out of line and I know everyone responsible will answer to God in the end, however I feel like Law Enforcement and Child Services should take a second look in this matter. I teach my kids to respect and trust Law Enforcement to take care of bad people. I hope they will in this case!

Because you have people who make bogus claims against innocent people and they are tied up dealing with false claims that they cannot get to the ones who need it. My cousin was tied up for 6 months with a false claim against her.

It just goes to show how much of a joke the law enforcement agencies are around here! I mean seriously, everyone who is not in law enforcement (and some who are) sit back and laugh at these idiots making fools of themselves. Just like the other day, I watched a Springfield cop get stuck in the median turning around to get a speeder when the turning lane was 10 feet further up the road! And they wonder why no one takes them seriously!

I heard that the mother of the baby killed him and then called the father over to baby-sit. And when he got there the boy was dead. Both of them need to be locked up.
