    Children need to be protected at all costs. They do not have the means to protect themselves. This piece of trash deserves the ultimate sentence. Death….. Call me barbaric but you have a child that has no means of protecting themselves and when you have a coward such as this they only understand one thing. They usually try and blame the child saying it was their fault that they acted as they did. How about this hurt a child on purpose to justify your actions and you will no longer be a threat to anyone. End of story and end of you hurting or endangering another child…….

    Some people shouldnt have children. I’m praying
    the baby completely recovers. I hope the little girl
    is put with people that will love her. Her father should
    never be aloud to see her, again. He should be
    sqeezed so hard that ribs brake.
