    the headline on that DM article contends that she beat him to death more than 100 times. Ahh, DM, you crack me up sometimes. Poor little guy...

    ETA: after reading the article, I feel a bit badly having poked fun of the headline. This is another absolutely terrifying and sad story. Too many of these and folks begin to lose compassion, I fear...

    It doesn't matter how many times I see it, the shock, outrage and disbelief never really dissipates. Why? In God's name, just why? Jesus wept how do people become so cruel that they could even contemplate doing such a thing?

    A cousin is the third person to be charged in the death of a 3-year-old boy, who was found malnourished and brutally beaten in his West Rogers Park home, authorities said.

    This story leaves me questioning - everything.

    Third relative charged in fatal beating of boy, 3 - Chicago Tribune

    http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/...in-fatal-beating-of-boy-3-20141112-story.html

    ETA: tlcya, this might be the same link. My head is spinning. My heart is broken. This child suffered unspeakably - at the hands of a pregnant woman no less.

    :sick:

    This is all just too much horror! This poor darling little guy! Over and over we are seeing torture before the deaths and people who seem to have NO normal human feelings of compassion or protection for little ones.

    I hope they never get out. Ever.

    Tylesha Griffin 'beat her toddler to death more than 100 TIMES, then waited to call for help' | Daily Mail Online

    (snip)
    When they returned home, they reportedly discovered Donnell in bed with vomit around his mouth. Instead of taking him to the hospital, the parents cleaned the child up and tucked him in again.

    It was not until hours later that Griffin called 911 to report that her son was unresponsive, according to court documents.

    What outrageous, unthinkable horror, that poor, poor baby :cry: And this so-called "mother" HA! ... nothing but a disgusting piece of evil, I hope she rots in prison. She should never, ever get out. On second thought, as far as I'm concerned she should get the death penalty. Better yet, that's really too good for her, imo.... She should get just what she gave her baby, eye for an eye. Let her suffer the way he did.
