this is how i feel about child abuse the man or woman that beats a child should be beat the same as child if killed should be done the same way till they die if sexually abused they should have a pole raimed up them till it kills them i hate all kinds of child abuse and if you dont feed your kids dont feed yourself this also goes for abusing elderly people to how you treat someone you should be treated the same grow up you stupid people

This story breaks my heart. I just imagine how scared that child must have been while his naked bottom was being lashed with a leather belt and then just left by himsself. Children are so defenseless. People should have to passed several tests and background checks to be able to produce children. I just wonder how many drugs this father is on to make him flip out like that. I think his rights as a father should be taken from him permanently and he should be sterilized.
poor child
