    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    Do people just want children around so that they can torture and torment them? I'm so tired of this happening over and over again. Not trying to be strident, but they always seem to have that same dull look. Poor little child...

    That's beyond sick; they look so satisfied with themselves. The boy seems to be in grave condition now.

    Sometimes.... I wish there could be "an eye for an eye.." punishment.
    The problem with that is someone has to inflict the punishment on the perps, and that (I'd suppose) threatens to dehumanize us all.
    Hope the boy survives. Even if we lived in a society where the dp was allowed in cases like this, the monsters would receive much more humane treatment -- up to and including their deaths.

    Please give this boy to someone who will love him !! Even now that he's rescued he may be traumatized for life.

    I think they "want children around" so they can collect welfare. JMO.

    This is heartbreaking. I hope the boy will recover to the extent he can be placed in a good home with loving parents.

    Children shouldn't come with government benefits attached.

    What kind of psycho people do that to little kids? That's torture from a scary movie. I almost threw up with that opening statement. Poor little babies.

    Police say abused 5-year-old boy is in medically induced coma; siblings transferred to state custody
    http://www.nola.com/crime/index.ssf/...ear-old_b.html
    "We can't talk to the 5-year-old at this point, because he's pretty much unconscious. It's a medically induced coma, because of his pain and what's going on."

    Sanders said the boy has been on a ventilator to assist breathing because "he was not responding very well" upon arrival at the hospital. He said the boy has since undergone two cranial surgeries aimed at reducing a dangerous amount of swelling to his brain.

    "That's the big concern right now, the swelling and trauma to the head," Sanders said. "And it's going to be up to what (doctors) can do to relieve that swelling."
    Siblings in this title must mean him and his sister.

    This young man is improving enough to talk to police. The lady who birthed him needs rights to both children terminated immediately. If the dad is as useless as the mom, terminate his rights, also, anfind a loving home for him and his sister. The termination should take two weeks, tops.

    Central City couple pleads not guilty to child cruelty charges
    http://www.nola.com/crime/index.ssf/...leads_not.html
    The boy's mother Heather Simpson and her live-in boyfriend Cristian DeGregory were reunited in court for the first time since their May 26 arrests. They stood side by side to enter pleas of not guilty to identical charges of second-degree cruelty to a juvenile before Orleans Parish Criminal District Judge Byron C. Williams.

    Their child abuse cases were transferred to Williams' court last month in order to follow a separate drug case brought against DeGregory. The 34-year-old DeGregory already has pleaded not guilty to a charge of possession with intent to distribute marijuana.

    Both he and Simpson, 37, face up to 40 years in state prison if convicted of the more serious child abuse allegation.
    Authorities' evidence in the case is to be turned over to defense attorneys at an Aug. 17 discovery hearing.

    It sickens me that they spent time in court flirting and blowing kisses with each other , I hope they get no such opportunities in the future.

    I wish they would give an update on little man's health!

    "Mother and live-in boyfriend who 'abused son, 5, so badly he lost fingernails and teeth' blame horrific injuries on his sister, 3, beating him up"

    From article: "Child abuse detectives arrested the boy's mother Heather Simpson, 37, who works at a strip club, and Christian DeGregory, 34, after an ambulance was called to their house in nearby Central City."

    The strip club HS worked at is Scores Mansion strip club in New Orleans.
