Anybody that can hurt an innocent child! Do you think they have to be crazy, have some kind of mental illness?! I dont understand how anyone in a normal state of mind could harm anybody let alone a defenseless child! I have been hearing so many stories on child abuse, people intentionally hurting children I dont see how a person could do such things unless they are demented!! What do you think? Do you think if these sick people were put on meds that they would realize what they did and how do you think they could possibly feel??

Unfortunately, some people that shouldn't even be allowed a dog have kids. I don't understand how people can do that to kids. My kids got spanked (not beaten) when they needed it. I did the hand-slap when they reached for something hot. I can't even fathom how someone could abuse their kids, though.

Sometimes people aren't mentally ill when they abuse. I don't know that most of them would feel bad, even on medication. Unless they got caught.

Babies - Babies are living angels.
Some people who are weak at heart will show their hidden angers on defenseless child. Till kids reach the age of 5 years, they deserve only Love and utmost care. Who ever hurts an innocent child will not be bleesed with children. God will keep them barren.

I think some people really are sick in a bad way if they ENJOY torturing children. Others have anger management issues and just lose control... and the more often you lose control, the more normal and okay it seems to you, until soon abusing your child is just your normal life.

I think many abusers have control issues. They are not happy with things in their life and have no control over what is happening with themselves so it makes them feel better being able to dominate and control the smaller and weaker things in their lives. What is sad is it is not only children but also helpless animals, anyone and anything that is weaker then themselves is fair game as far as they are concerned. The only way they can feel better about themselves is by hurting others. I don't have a degree to say this is factual, this is just my own thoughts on the matter. Personally I would love to see people that hurt and/or kill an innocent life receive the same. I'm sure in rare cases one may have a chemical imbalance that could cause total rage to the point of blackout (not remembering what happened at all) but I think that is few and far between. Do you think John Wayne Gacy and others like him would have been helped with meds? I don't.

I think that anyone who can do any kind of atrocious act has to have some kind of problem. Whether it be from a hard childhood, the way they're brought up, some kind of chemical imbalance, mental illness, anger, depression, or whatever. There has to be something that causes someone to completely rid themselves of a conscience to be able to do these kinds of things. Personally, I think it depends on the situation and/or person whether or not medication alone would help. Alot of times medication can help but in order to cure someone they would need intense therapy.
