    Why is the BOND SO LOW for such a horrible crime on this little baby. It seems that the criminals have all of the rights and the victims are the scum of the earth!!This has got to be turned around. That baby needs to be given to loving parents. Where was the mother in all of this?? I would kill someone if they hurt my baby. He would have been scared just to look at my little baby wrong!! We moms need to get together and take care of this LOW LIFE EXCUSE OF A DADDY!! It would save our BROKE STATE some money!

    Peace i don't know who you are or where you are from, but i think you need to run for President! I agree with 1000%. We need to stand up for what we beleive in and stop allowing these thugs and low lifes to control our future and the future of our children. Think about it people, look how things have changed over the past 50 even 10 years. What do you think our children will be living in. We elect these judges and officials, we need to START STANDING UP AND FORCING THEM TO DO WHAT WE ELECTED THEM TO DO. SERVE US AND WHAT WE WANT DONE.! I for one am tierd of being afraid to speak to a stranger, in fear he will follow me out to a praking lot and hurt me. Afraid for my children leave my side in a store. Not being able to say MERRY CHRISTMAS and being told to say Happy Holidays at work. Christianity is my preferance and my right. Our children are our future and need to be protected, and cherished.

    If they give that baby back to the father, then the courts are signing the child's death warrant. When will we start valuing our children as PEOPLE? If this had been done to an adult, there would be no question as to what would happen to him.

    God has a special place for people that hurt children.

    why spend all this money for NASA to send robots to outer-space, when we can use people like this. Forget having jails around law-abiding citizens, send ALL criminals to discover the Universe. Reduces population, and we can live at peace. Hmm? Who's with me??
