Where are the parents of these people? Why is there so little info in the article? Do either of these teens have jobs?



When you tolerate 3rd world culture, you're going to get that kind of behavior from time to time.

You mean 'parent', and even then the term applies very loosely.

I have an idea of what you might be thinking. Honestly, it's a thought that I myself would hold.

My bio mom had her first kid at 14. That was a few years ago...ahem. She had 5 kids by the time she was 21. It doesn't usually work out well for kids when the parents are that young.

Too many little kids get killed by their mother's boyfriends - there is failure all around.

This is sickening:

I will never understand the level of anger that someone must have to do this to a child - let alone for an innocent mistake. She was 4. Four year olds spill things. Maybe he should have not been an idiot and put the console up where she couldn't get near it, fricken moron.

The other inmates don't take kindly to child beaters - so guards or not, eventually someone is going to get him.

Your first priority as a Mother is to take care of your child and to be sure your child is safe. She has to take some of the blame.

I agree. Also, doctors state that their is evidence of prior abuse. So either the momma was pretty dumb or didn't care what he did to her. (or hell maybe she was abusing the kid herself)

It's frustrating; isn't it?

I don't mean with specifically just this story either but most of them recently. Media is not "reporting" the news as much as they are "regurgitating" it; probably from the Media/Press pages or Blotters on most law enforcement & court reporter websites, which are generally public access anyway.

Here on CD; many frequent posters on Current Events are developing their own research skills in order to fill in those blanks that reporters used to fill, without the benefit of a snappy outfit, cameraman & press pass.

It's not the fault of any of the CE OPs. That's sort of the context of this sub-forum; we discuss what has been reported.

The reporters that we rely on to ask the relevant questions, however; seem to be utilizing a new "140 characters or less" style of communication that I easily recognize as similar to the way my teenage daughters communicate. Except my teenagers seem to have more reliable sources. As if it were possible to further lower my expectations from the media.

I guess we get to the bottom of it eventually; 140 pages later but this is why we see ordinary people, such as Kelsey Berreth's mother; go to such extraordinary lengths to communicate with the public on her terms. Imagine if it were a case close to your heart, where seconds count & you have to rely on answers from random people who may have seen or heard something ... but nobody even knows what the question is.
