STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- A 9-year-old boy was forced naked into the oven of his Graniteville home by his enraged father, police said. The boy's crime? He apparently foraged in his parent's wallet.

Probably a good idea to euthanize the man for the safety of others. Oh wait, we can only do that to dogs that we have destablized.

I used to live and work around NYC. I heard this stuff everyday and it made me sick. It was one of the reasons I moved were I did. I seems now you hear about it anywhere anyway. I feel the same as I did when I heard it them. Take them out an shoot them. Him first, and put her in Jail for life because the first job of a mother is to protect her child. Where the heck was she? I know you can't shoot him But for heaven's sake, take the chiild OUT of that family and MAX ot both of them. Make voluntary sterilization for them a carrot to shave a few years off. It would be worth not to have either of them EVER to have a child again.

The child may have been hungry--he wouldn't be the first child who, finding no food in the house and knowing it wasn't a priority with his parents, decided to appropriate for food a little of the money the parents might have earmarked for drinking or drugs. A childhood friend of mine used to have to do that not only for herself, but for her younger siblings as well. She knew that asking was both pointless and hazardous. No child should ever be put in that situation. No parent guilty of such deprivation and abuse should get away with it.

This is the very reason many people need to take parenting classes
while they are in grade school & H.S..........There are many, too many
humans who are not fit to procreate.

Must have been one hell of an oven in that modest townhouse to hold a nine-year-old. Take dud down to the local pizza parlor and bake him slowly until well done.

I think this guy needs some serious help. I hope that while encarcerated, he will get some help. This was just plain anger and was way over board for him to have done. No one deserves this kind of torture.

I've been on Care2 a long time & I used to read all the stories
that concerned child abuse. As of about a year ago I quit
reading them simply because each story was worse than the
last one. The abuses are all the same with the same scenario
and intent to harm rather than think of a better way to......Teach.

The crowing moment of disgust came when there was the story
of the little girl who was beaten to death, put in a plastic container
and then thrown into the gulf of Mexico. I can not remember her
name & no one else knew it either for quite some time.

Her G*d dam mother & live in boyfriend were sent up & the clincher
of the story was the mother was pregnant at the time of her arrest.

Life means nothing to these kind of people...........A hot moment
on a cold night is all it takes to create a child with no desire at
all to have it.........It is just a something that is as far as they
are concerned.

This will not be the last child abuse case you will ever read
or hear about............I say give em the pill & let them screw
themselves to death.

Plant & protect trees for life..............

apparently this jackass felt that this form of punishment would deter his son from ever doing this again, so what punishment should be administered against bozo so he never does this to his son again? Hmm how about an overnight stay in jail with Big Bubba!

Dear B.M.,

Beautifully put, and so true. If I could send you a green star, I would.

It seems as if we have to get a permit or liscense for everything, yet ANY yay-hoo can have children. A friend of mine worked for CSD in Oregon-- OMG the stories she has. Women addicted to crack trailed by 4 children in stinking rags, pregnant with another...

Yes, anyone who abuses children, animals, or anyone who has no voice should be punished to the max, and child-abusers should be sterilized.

What a horrifying story. Such a person as this deranged dad shouldn't be allowed near children anymore. And the mother? No comment.

An eye for an eye, I say. The father should be put in the oven. And sterilized. I apologize if that offends anyone, but that child had no chance. Jail should take care of him, though. They do not like child abusers/murderers.

Thank you Anna.......Forced sterilization is a grand solution.
But, then there would be those screaming about their rights
being violated!!!!!!
What??!!..................What about the care & nurturing of that
child who should by all rights have a set of loving parents!!

Maybe a liscense to procreate is even better! Give em a
test on parenting a hundred question long if not more!!!!

The hulking, knuckle dragging bastard, needs to be castrated, sans anesthesia, then placed on a hot stove several times a week, several times a day. Place him in a cell with an even bigger knuckle dragger named Bubba for nighttime fun! Sounds like a perfectly reasonable punishment to fit the crime.

mmmm .. you think "The Church" is upset about homosexuality .. just try to get mandatory 'sterilization' anywhere .. and watch them come totally unglued. It would not be just them .. visualize Beck's followers, NRA radicals, etc, etc .. (shudder) .. too horrible to contemplate .. but I'd join the fight for it !!

I'm amazed that the people that love children & can't have them goes thru hell to adopt. Yet there is scum like this that doe's this to a child. That child need's to be removed from the household. How I wish that I responded to this call. It is people like that, that I alway's wish they would resist arrest.

I am amazed at the low number of years that people have received for killing their children. That is not acceptable - it should be life without parole, or better yet the death penalty. How anyone can hurt an innocent child is beyond my ability to understand. There is no excuse for abuse.

So many parents need parenting themselves. A sign of how our society's doing is how we care for our vulnerable. We need to act as a whole in order to prevent this kind of catastrophic parenting.

Sickening...mandatory sterilization would be a solution. Personally, I'd love to pummel this guy around ALOT! The article says the mother was hitting the kid on the back of the head with a wooden spatula. So she's SICK TOO! It gives me chills because I had a cousin by marriage who survived childhoold in New York City, who had HIS hands held to the flames. He lives with stubby fingers to this day, but has managed to become an artist. Abuse stays with you one way or another.

Is this some kind of tortuous cult in Staten Island? And the one man convicted of 2nd degree murder of his child only got 15 years in prison? This whole story is sickening and my heart goes out to the child and all children who suffer like this.

Childhood should be a time of joy, development and learning. This sick excuse for a father is clearly incapable of teaching his son, let alone allowing him to live in peace and develop as he should. It is true in the UK also that anyone can have children, no licence required, and suffering by many is the result. I hope this boy finds a home that he deserves where he can live without fear, humiliation and pain.
At least in the US the prison sentences appear longer than here. We have had cases where a child has been murdered and the perpetrators get just 4 years! That also disgusts me.

None of this was justified. What a big brave man to do this to a little boy. I'd like to give him the redhot poker treatment. Hope he gets put away for a long long time.

as soon as he admitted he did to the child what he was acussed of .he should have been take out , stripped naked , hung by his heels , gutted and left to bleed out . sorry there was no excuse for what he did no matter what the child did !! child killers and molesters should be extreminated with no delay at all . thank you Terry .hope all is well with you !!

It is impossible for a father to own anything that does not belong to his child already. If the child took from his father's wallet, that was a crime. it was a crime of child neglect that the father committed, in failing to make the child feel provided for. the child is a small human being who is entitled to everything his father ever had and more, and the only theft committed was the father's theft from his child in failing to provide everything he had in both money and love, to make the child feel provided for and safe. the only excuse a father ever has for attacking a thief in his home, is the presumption that the thief (not his child, but someone who DOES'NT own all that he has) will deprive and might hurt the child in the home, both the only good reasons for a father to attack a thief beaking into the home, since any father NOToutraged at the idea of anyone depriving or hurting his child (especially including himself) has serious mental problems. Not to mention that America does not condone slavery. that father should be stripped of his citizenship for his illegal position of believing that the child is his property to do with as he pleases, not his heir apparent and equal rightful owner of everything he has, whose only lack of reason for touching his father's money is the presumption that his father is better equipped to handle the family finances, which i doubt. the father is probably a drunk, and definitely on something addictive, so it would make better sense for the son to be his father's financial legal guardian, since his right (non-addict) priorities would outweigh his father's math skills and financial experience. therefore every time the father touches the wallet, someone should shove him in an oven for stealing from his son. i hope a lot of adults take the time to tell the kid that he didn't do anything wrong and this is entirely his mentally ill father's fault.
