Cops: McAllen man killed crying girl during World Cup game | News for Dallas, Texas | Dallas Morning News | Latest News

"The girl was severely beaten, and police said a screw or bolt was forced down her throat in an apparent attempt to make it look like she accidentally chocked.

"There are no words for this," Rodriguez said. "It makes you want to think about doing lots of things to this guy, but he will face the criminal justice system just like everybody else."

Castro, who was in the U.S. illegally, confessed to beating the girl, Rodriguez said. The toddler suffered several cracked ribs"

So, if we got rid of illegals we would solve America's child-abuse problem?

Child Abuse Research and Statistics
Rate of child abuse by race:
White = 51%
African American = 25%
Hispanic = 15%
American Indian/Alaska Natives = 2%
Asian/Pacific Islanders = 1%

Child Maltreatment 2008: Table of Contents
Race and Ethnicity of Child Fatalities
More than one-third (39.0%) of all fatalities were White children.4 More than one-quarter (29.6%) were African-American children, and nearly one-fifth (15.8%) were Hispanic children. Children of American Indian or Alaska Native, Asian, and multiple race categories collectively accounted for 4.3 percent of fatalities. More than 10 percent (11.2%) of children were of unknown race.

Race and Ethnicity of Perpetrators
The racial distribution of perpetrators was similar to the race of their victims. During FFY 2008, nearly one-half (47.8%) of perpetrators were White and one-fifth (19.6%) were African-American. Approximately 20 percent (19.5%) of perpetrators were Hispanic.3 These proportions also have remained consistent for the past few years.

Way to go off your rocker there.

We have to solve this case of an illegal alien when the valuable police work and money could be invested elsewhere if this illegal alien didn't jump the border.

Just the kind of Person Obama wants to reward with citizenship. Hopefully He suffers
greatly where ever He ends up.

i love threads with an agenda...

i see this as a case of child neglect/murder. its not an illegal as much as it is a monstrous murderous step father.
that would much more succinctly explain this.

being an illegal does not mean you will kill your step child. being a monstrous murderous step father? probably.

What does race have to do with it? Officer Rodriguez was just as horrified as anyone would be...

Point is - the kid might still be alive if the illegal hadn't come across the border.

Not at all. But what it would do is prevent those children from being harmed by illegals.

Oh right, but illegals never ever do anyting wrong do they! Would not have this problem period, if we did not have the problem we have with illegals in Our Country, who come across our borders by very illegal means!
