You people don't know anything. I'm good friends with these people. The mother was at work and didn't know ANYTHING. I was shocked to hear that he'd done this. It's terrible. I baby-sat that child and i have never seen any parents love a child more.

why would someone allow something like this to happen to someone so innocent!

Members of the family and even friends were aware of previous injuries this child suffered. The entire household should be in custody until this is sorted out.
