    NY - Zymere Perkins, 6, beaten to death, Harlem, 26 Sept 2016 *Arrests*



    The mother of a battered 6-year-old Harlem boy told investigators she watched her hulking boyfriend beat her son with a wooden broomstick and hang him by his T-shirt from a hook on the bathroom door. Then she placed her dead son on a bed and rested and read the Bible.

    The infuriating and sickening details of little Zymere Perkins’ final moments emerged as city investigators launched a probe Wednesday into his death — trying to determine whether a series of past child-care failures sealed his tragic fate.

    The Department of Investigation demanded the documents in five previous ACS probes of abuse involving Zymere’s mom (...)

    Read this one at work today and had a cry. The details of admissions of abuse by mom herself and her failure to protect this beautiful baby from her boyfriend are so hard to read.

    In the complaint released by the District Attorney's office, it says that the mother admitted to hitting her son on numerous occasions and used a broomstick once.


    The broom stick was recovered in the building's trash compactor.

    Geraldine Perkins was investigated for possible child abuse on five occasions, beginning in June 2010. The latest questioning came just five months ago, when Zymere told a school worker the bruises on his leg occurred when a cousin whacked him with a scooter, a source told The News.


    Later that day, Zymere told authorities his mom hit him in the head with a belt, the source said.

    The duo was outraged when Miller washed and fed Zymere while his mom and her boyfriend were out partying for Perkins’ July 2015 birthday, according to the victim.


    “They jumped me and severely beat me in front of my (1-year-old) son, until my son couldn’t recognize my face,” said Miller, who lived alongside Zymere’s family in a Queens homeless shelter.


    Miller was walking her boy in a stroller when the couple attacked, leaving her feeling as terrorized as the lovable little Zymere.

    People tried to get this baby help and he was left in throes of abject poverty to be this couples punching bag.

    “I don’t care if she was a friend of mine,” she cried. “Nobody helped him. I hope she gets life.”

    [...]

    “He was known to be articulate, playful and loving,” the program read. “Zymere had a smile that would captivate anyone’s heart.”


    The Rev. Mark Taylor, who gave the eulogy, said the family had once brought the boy to the church and asked him to pray for Zymere.


    “I put my hands on him and he squirmed. I didn’t know anything was wrong. I wonder if I could have done more,” Rev. Taylor said.


    “Where was the city of New York?” he added sorrowfully.

    Mayor de Blasio on Thursday said the fallout at the embattled Administration for Children’s Services in the wake of the death of a 6-year-old Harlem boy is “just the beginning,” following this week’s suspension of four top agency heads.

    The harsh words came a day after ACS confirmed that an assistant commissioner, a borough commissioner and two other agency officials were suspended for 30 days without pay as the investigation into the death of Zymere Perkins continues.


    “Suspension is the first step,” said de Blasio

    Prosecutors are presenting a homicide case to a grand jury in the beating death of 6-year-old Zymere Perkins last year...

    So far, Smith, 42, and Perkins, 26, are only charged with endangering the welfare of a child, a misdemeanor...

    Little Zymere became a poster child for dysfunction at the city's Administration for Children's Services... Seven ACS workers have been suspended and demoted for lack of supervision and communication failures. ACS Commissioner Gladys Carrion also resigned.
