How could anyone be willing to watch their deadbeat boyfriend beat their son? She is just as guilty. I am a mother of a 3 year old and 2 year old and literally over my DEAD body would someone hit or abuse my child! He was beaten and burned so bad that he is almost blind and is undergoing his 2ND brain surgery. I wish these two could have done this back when we could legally electricute them. Pray for that baby.
