    I think it is sad for someone to hurt a child, that did not ask to be conceived or born. For gods sake please dont keep having babies for tax payers to pay for then leaving them in the care of some scumbag like this. Why was he released on a secured bond?

    I hope DSS finds this poor little baby a nice new adoptive family. I hope they do not allow anyone related to that idiot to get custody or Kinship Care. Unfortunately you would be surprised how important biology is to DSS no matter what WHACKADOO families these babies come from. RIDICULOUS.

    If you read the article posted by "Me on May 6, 2011 at 9:53", it actually sounds like it may have been an accident. He claims he was heating up a bottle while holding the baby. Let's not jump to conclusions that it was intentional. That is for the court to decide.

    They should tie him to a stake and set fire to him! Then maybe he would think twice about hurting a child!
