A father beat his 3 year old daughter to death and said it was accident.He beat her because she refused to eat a peanut butter sandwich in 2005 the mom was at work.Then another guy beat his daughter 5 days ago and his family said he didn't do it they said she fell outside she died of blunt trauma. The police say they have evidents that he did it. Wha's your thoughts on this?

I think it is insane and inhuman. They have no control of their emotions. It is horrifying. I hope he gets the gas chamber if proven that he did it.

It's crazy isn't it? Some dad here just killed his 4 children, his girlfriend, her cousin, and then himself. Another father put his 3 yr old and 2 yr old in a dryer. I wish they would just leave the children out of it.

They must have had a mental breakdown or other mental disorder. It is terrible and thy really need to be put away for a long time.

Why put them away for a long time? So they could come out and have more children to try again? No offense. But some crimes are just unforgiveable!!! You steal some bread because your child is hungry...forgiveable. You should get a job but the stealing is forgiveable. You lie about how many years of experience you have on an application even though you sign to swear all information is true and could be held against you....forgiveable. You are at lease trying to get that job and your work performance will say if you are capable or not. But murder? Nope. Not forgiveable.

This is one of the most monstrous thing to do, i would not kill any person leave alone my own siblings.I think this is a sin and the person should be given nothing less than capital punishment.

Oh wow, the father should've just given the child a JELLY sandwhich. Maybe the girl was allergic to peanuts and she knew it, while the father didn't? Ok seriously, that guy is just out of his mind. Why beat an innocent child over a sandwhich?

I say what is wrong with these people. i think most if them get a slap on the wrist maybe if the punishment was a little more harsh all this child abuse would stop.

It makes me sad that anyone would hit their child, claiming it for well-being. "Oh she wouldn't eat so I went nuts and killed her." That's terrible. What kind of parent is that?

I just don't understand what is coming of this society. Every day you hear of people beating their kids. The other day I read where this one father put his kids in the dryer and last week this mother was accused of microwaving her baby. There was a case in my hometown just the other day of this mother and her boyfriend who were beating her 5 year old daughter and the neighbors heard and several of them called 911. It took the police quite a while to get there. There is some investigation as to why it took the police so long to arrive. The girl did survive, but the memories and the pain will never be forgotten.

That's horrible! People should not be able to get away with this. That man should be put into jail and let the rest of the inmates show him where he made his mistake! I'm almost sure that they would do that, too...best the living hell out of him!

Any type of abuse is wrong!How can it be controlled?Many people(men and women) feel the need to be authorative or in control and when others do not acknoledge it,the person uses force to control.And they always seem to go to the weakest link of the fence(that being younger or smaller people).Anger and frustration are my feelings when stories like these occur.

This is disgusting. Unfortunately it happens all too often. I hope that this guy is arrested and put away for life.

There are way too many stories like this and they're all awful and heartbreaking. Child protective services in this country and many others are terribly underfunded. The caseworkers are most often overworked and have a difficult time handling the flow of abuse reports that come in. On the other side of this people are often afraid to report abuse because they think they might somehow get in trouble.

Even though I am two months late on this response, this was horrifying to hear and I do not believe the father that this was an accident. Nobody should ever beat their child no matter what the situation. It is crime and hope he got locked up for life. It is very sad that these things are happening. People that do this to their child are very sick. I have heard a lot of sick things like a woman who put her child in the microwave.

My Thoughts are I hope they are locked away for Life You do not beat any child yes a smack but there is a difference in a smack and beating I think it is terrible that a parent can do that to their own Child
