    NY - Kyle Smith, 3, beaten to death, Brooklyn, 6 June 2008

    http://www.signonsandiego.com/news/n...boybeaten.html


    NEW YORK A 3-year-old boy who was sent to his godmother's Brooklyn home so she could take care of him because his mother was hooked on drugs has been found covered in cigarette burns and apparently beaten to death.
    Police say Kyle Smith had a broken leg and was sodomized with an unknown object before he died Friday.

    Good lord...what the heck is wrong with people. If you can't/don't want to take care fo the child, give him to the state. Also...this little boy was sodomized??? I hope they determine who did what fast!

    Poor, poor little chap. I wonder where in the building he was found and if the godmother and her boyfriend had anything to do with it?

    There isn't a lot of information in the article, blaize. I immediately thought that the godmother and bf were perpetrators, but I suppose it could have been an abduction.

    He was covered with cigarette burns and had a broken leg!! Injuries like this would not happen quickly, whoever did it had plenty of time. Poor little boy, his suffering is over now.

    The Godmother and boyfriend have been arrested. The young boy was in their apartment. Sorry a$$ neighbors knew that something bad was going on but never reported it.

    I couldn't even read the entire article.
    May this baby rest in peace.
    May his murderer be punished the same way!

    From what I've read, there are way too many children in the system and the system doesn't have enough workers.
    One of the main concerns of the US should be protecting our children.

    I think the institution of orphanages needs to be brought back.

    I don't either. I simply CANNOT see another headline about a murdered or abused child. What the hell is wrong with people that they think it's okay to do these types of vile things to children.

    God Bless this little one and all the others that have been failed by those around them that should be loving and taking care of them.

    I'm so angry.

    Or more of our tax dollars should go to CPS?

    I don't understand how so much funding can go to things of lesser consequence and children get the short end of the stick.
