    UK -Father beat son whilst dangling him from forklift, then welded him into tiny cage


    Evil father beat his son, 29, while hanging him upside
    down from forklift truck before welding him into tiny cage

    An evil father who beat his son while he was hanging upside down from a forklift truck, before welding him into a cage has been jailed for 16 years.

    Gary Clifford, 29, was left with a broken arm, two broken legs, a fractured foot and hundreds of cuts and bruises after his father and uncle tortured him - believing he had stolen jewellery from his step-mother.

    Leicester Crown Court heard how Garyís father, Kevin Clifford, 51, uncle, Patrick Clifford, and a third man, John Cope, 47, had beaten Gary within an inch of his life and dumped him outside a pub.
    The court heard that Kevin Clifford lured his son to a workshop at the back of his home, with the offer of work, to carry out the barbaric punishment.

    During the attack his son was welded into the cage, had brake fluid sprayed into his face and was threatened with being set on fire.
    Judge Ebraham Mooncey said: 'You donít often hear of someone being hung upside down from a forklift truck and caged. He had a sack put over his head and a cable around his neck.'

    His childhood must have been a nightmare. How sadistic can a human be, and to their own flesh and blood?

    Good Lord!

    If this 'father' did this to him at the age of 29, what in the world was this boys life before that????
    Say what you mean, mean what you say, but don't say it mean.
    We are all just trying to make sense of an unimaginable crime.
