Apparently my parents smacked my bottom when I wouldn’t stop crying. Never face or neck. Prison for him.

Must feel like a "real big man" to slap an innocent and defenseless 9month old baby, huh? Give him 30 years HARD labour!

It’s take six months to arrest him? That’s odd.

He is not a man! I remember when Mt done was 9 months old and he had just started walking. It was one of the pleasurable and proud times of my life What is wrong with these people that they must beat their young children? It astonishes and perplexes me to no end.

Kono must be arrested and put in prison for 10 years and abused every day the way he abused his 9 months son. On his release he should be divorced from his wife and never allowed to go near his family. He should be chemically castrated and made never able to father children in his life.

I hope when this kid turns 32, he’ll find his “father” and do the exact same thing to him.

tired of these fools that have no idea how to treat infants and toddlers. Make sure he gets daily training when he’s in jail. You know, in between manual labor stints

Police said they are questioning Kono about whether he regularly abused his youngest son. More than likely yes, I would also want to think that perhaps the kid had some issues that were uncontrollable the mother knew because she was out with the youngest son running errands perhaps the kid had some issues and was alot of work to care for while doing so, this is why she had the youngest one with her who would probably be easier to care for while she ran her errands. Just my thinking not saying this happened.
