Completely shocked and disgusted...

A man from this area has been charged with shaking and slamming his 4 month old, that is right 4 MONTH OLD baby boy so severely that the infant is on life support and is so brain damaged that he will be removed from life support and the organs donated.  From what I understand this is a very large man and there are indications that the infant was not the only victim of abuse in this house...  I cannot even begin to express my horror and disgust at this..If you want to see the article and video click on the blue letters at the beginning of this entry..

Linda, unfortunately this happens way too often. ER personnel are trained to look for the signs of such treatment, but by that time it may be too late for the baby. It's awful. There are organizations out there that can help people get a handle on their anger, but they have to realize they have a problem to take advantage of them. I'm sorry it's happened in your community.

I don't know how in the world anyone could do this!  I pray that the other children will be placed somewhere ~ where they will be taken care of & loved!

hope they throw the book at him and lock him away for the rest of his life; I hate to hear stories like this; the only comfort I have in all this is that that little baby will go straight to the arms of God when he dies; so sad that people are soooo cruel to the littlest of children :(

That is absolutely awful.  I hope he gets a fitting punishment, murder is murder. I wish I could say the same thing does not happen here but it does.  Not a case of abuse but a couple of days ago a man here killed his three year old daughter and his one year old daughter and then hanged himself because his marriage had broken up.  But, before he hanged himself he phoned his wife and told her he had killed the children, he also told his other family and his boss.  So this was no "moment of madness" he knew exactly what he was doing and wanted his wife to suffer even more.  What a world.

These cases are becoming all to common.  It is so horrible to think of what some of these innocents endure the short time they are on this earth.  Bless their hearts.  I hope that guy rots in jail and the other inmates take care of him properly ~ he deserves whatever he gets in this life.

Horrific story and this occurs more often they you would think.

My question? If there were previous incidents why wasn't Child Protective Services called in then. Instead they wait until the child is brain dead and then they decide to remove the other children from the home. This should have been reported by the mother. I find her an accessorie after the fact and she should be charged as such.

There is one consolation in all of this. Baby Matthew is being snuggled in Jesus' arms and will not have to endure any more abuse.

Blessings,
Mary

These kinds of stories never cease to amaze me...how someone could even think about hurting their child. It's way deeper than that. Merry Christmas to you and a very Happy New Year!!! Love, Shelly
