    You are a sick person how can you do this kind of thing especially to your own daughter. You deserve big punishment …..

  • GoFigure

    Unfortunately there are people who get caught with an ounce of weed who are seeing more prison time than this guy will see. Sad.

  • no name

    I worked with this guy once upon a time as a bouncer. I find it hard to believe he would do something like this.

  • sean

    I find this hard to believe. I know the man. He was a hard worker and an all around good guy. Let’s remember it’s innocent until proven guilty.

    How can you stupid people judge him. The cops picked up somebody that was related to the girl. Where the heck is the mother and her boyfriend. Probably kicking back doing meth and looking a porn. The media just loves to twist things

  • Nana S

    Yes innocent until proven guilty, but whoever did this or allowed this to happen to that precious baby needs harsh punishment!! Sounds like the poor baby had a terrible life, prayers for recovery for this precious Angel!!

    Why was “IT” even taken alive??
    They should of put 6holes in “IT” and let “IT” DIE!!!

    • mrmakeitworse

      And if you was accused of it by what some crank whore said, I guess we should just put six hole in you also.

      • Faith

        If he is guilty no punishment doled out will be enough. Hopefully the child will be taken from everyone involved that did something wrong or nothing to help this baby and placed with people who are not selfish disgusting monsters!

  • Captain

    I know this person and while I detest pedophiles I have a hard time believing he would do this. If he did, he should off himself, but knowing him and others tied to this, I wouldn’t be suprised if it was a setup. Either way, I’m praying for the little one.

  • anonymous

    Prayers go out for a full recovery and happy life for this little girl. And as for the father, he needs to suffer for this sick and twisted act. I just don’t understand how anyone could do something like this.

  • deborah

    He was arrested on “suspicion” why is it important to ruin someone’s name before the “facts” are presented? If found guilty, then he deserves the full extent of the law and then some. If found innocent, his name is ruined for life and will always be judged. Again, the media wants to be first on reporting a horrific incident before the facts are presented, granted the fact is “suspicion” .

    This monster is nothing but a giant bag full of pig’s puke! PLEASE— put him in prison for life, and make sure EVERYONE knows WHY he’s there! They will make sure he regrets every minute of his sorry, miserable excuse for a life!

  • Soonerfan

    If guilty make him pay. If he is not his name is already ruined. I agree with Deborah on that.

  • Sad Mom Today

    Could we get a follow up? Was the mother charged with anything? There was a hearing, what was the outcome? If you are going to write a story, follow up on it….please
