21-year-old man on suspicion of abusing his 2-year-old son by kicking him.

This man only 19-year-old when his baby was born?

Hopefully the child can recover and be provided a proper caregiver/guardian in ‘a life away for his abuser’.

The guy Sounds like a real winner.

When can we have a turn at kicking the dad? You know, just for fun.

If the police get involved will never know the truth.

They'll dictate a forced confession, and the trial won't get published in the media.

The concerned citizen noticed the stigmata 16 days later! I wonder what the bruises looked like immediately after the assault on July 20!

17 years from now we will or could be possibly reading, son kills father. I can only imagine what the posters will post. I am not saying what the father did was right, I am just posting my thoughts of the repercussions that we read and post about why someone kills a family member. We just don't know because we don't live in their homes. My thoughts on the father kicking the son. I say lock him up!!! I hope the son recovers from the physical beating but I am SURE he will never forget the mental memories of it. Stay tuned!

So what do you propose then?
