I'll never understand how anybody can do that to their child. Poor baby never had a chance.

Seriously leave them in jail!! Inmates hate child abusers and sex offenders I say you put them in a regular pod and let them handle these sorry waste of space people. I say let them sit in a cell surrounded by pictures of their child so they can remember what they did and go crazy and suffer.

They both deserve to burn in hell. Leave them in jail and let 'em get beat to death.

Please give this precious angel some peace.

How anybody can do this of a child, is unheard of, but to do this to their own flesh and blood, is totally unspeakable. These so-called parents should get the same punishment they inflected on their baby.

I hope these people are abused in jail like they abused their son. They well deserve what is coming to them. As far as the baby if he's being kept on life support and is brain dead then maybe it would be better if he just were left to go rest now he has suffered enough.

what a disgusting pair of human beings. if they did not want the child in fl we have a law that allows people to drop off the child at any hospital, or fire house or to the police with no charges. dont know if texas has same but losing one child like this is a disgrace to your state goverment. were they illegal aliens? they deserve to be steralized and sent to prison for 25 yrs each let them think every day and night as they hear that baby screaming in there dreams. my prayers go out to the child. if the baby is brain dead then they should end the pain of the child. the child will find peace in heaven.

this reminds me of that infamous case in las cruces involving that 5 month old babygirl that was physically and sexually abused at the hands of father, mother and uncle. i don't know if you all remember it. even the grandmother and another uncle went to jail for not reporting the abuse. such a shame.
