    This is when I believe in "Hang them by a tree" if found guilty. Really, a newborn baby! SICK, SICK, SICK!!! I as a tax payer do not want to pay for him to live in prison if convicted.

      Right?!!!! This guy, and any one else who abuses their child, no matter what the age, deserves this. But to something as precious as a newborn? He's definitely a sicko!

  • Rachelle

    Wow. He deserves the worse!! Poor baby boy, I'll be praying for you.
    I just can't get over the fact that someone could even think about hurting a innocent child. :(

    WOW! This perv should not get a bail! A newborn come on that is just plain sick. If he is convicted (which he should be) LIFE WITH OUT PAROLE

    A newborn yet. What is the matter with people now days?? Really hoping that he does get a lot of prison time for what he has done. And put in with the regular inmates. Maybe he will get what he deserves for this.

    Gotta get a dog license to have a pet dog, but any fool can get a kid to screw up.
    CPS take the kid away from him & snip him so he has NO more kids in this life time.

    There is no excuse for this. Just exterminate this loser and move on. I hope this poor child has a full recovery and a chance to survive and succeed despite this horrible beginning in life.

    Interesting responses…I am a card carrying conservative…but my response to this sad story was tears for the whole situation…for a nation that has raised fatherless children and not modeled a home life for them…for girls who have no value in themselves…for boys who do not know how to be men…for the nonesense that everything has to be 'fair'…'fair babysitting'…'equal jobs'…whatever. God have mercy on their poor souls. Poor little child…perhaps he will mend…but it will take more than that to put this nations families back together.
