What kind of piece of shiat does this to a 2 year old kid!!?  Mother is part to blame too.  Selfish to surround your 2 year old with garbage like this just for your  own personal needs.  Didn't need money from him.

i am not against the idea of spanking or even physically disciplining children in general.  i don't think that spanking is a bad thing by itself.  however, i am very much against it in practice because most adults do not know their own strength, and what they feel is a reasonable punch or slap to make a kid get in line could very well result in a concussion or broken bones.  hitting a kid is not like hitting an adult.  many of these situations involve an adult who simply cannot control their temper, so they punch the kid, not realizing how much damage a punch can really do.  in theory, physical discipline might be okay, but in practice, it almost always results in physical abuse and sometimes death.  i would bet many of the people who kill children this way grew up with and believe in physical discipline, and they never realize that a simple punch could crack a kid's skull or cause serious internal bleeding.

I hope they prosecute the mother, as well.

yes, folks, you just read that punching a child is perfectly "reasonable," behavior as long as one can control their temper.  im curious, can you tell me how many children you have so i can call CPS?

Not until you said it. You dug WAY deep to come up with that one.

my argument:  nobody should hit their kids because kids are weak and adults don't know their own strength.
your rebuttal:  this guy thinks you should hit your kids!

GoldSpider: INeedAName: Wow. You're an idiot.

So you don't think being chronically poor/unemployed puts a strain on one's psyche?


It does, but it has a limit. Poverty means you might kill a man for a loaf of bread, but it didn't mean you'll beat a kid to brain-death just because.

JohnBigBootay: NightOwl2255: I know there's nothing he can do at this point, but how the hell do you play a game two days after your 2 year old kid dies? How could you concentrate on playing football?

I couldn't concentrate. But knowing myself I'm pretty freakin' sure I'd come to work and be useless anyway. I think there's plenty of people who prefer to fall back on routine and familiar surroundings to deal with tragedy.


When my mother died a few years ago, I was at work the next day. I don't have the best relationship with my parents, but you don't take the idea that you are halfway an orphan well. I found that working helped provide a feeling of stability, and it was a distraction by itself.
