What I have noticed about child abusers, is that they seem to have two problems
1. Rage/anger against society, a socio-economic problem, work stress,
2. Powerlessness, they feel a lack of power and control in their lives.

This is aside from substance abuse, I have seen drug addicts neglect kids, and sexually abuse kids, but not with sustained rage and torture like this case.

Then, there are people who are just evil. They like to inflict pain.

I think this fits Brandon. From what I can find, he had a normal background. He was a druggie and a dealer......and an immature scumbag who took his rage out on a defenseless child, over 4 long, horrible days, with Dominick screaming "Mommy, make him stop....."

I simply do not, cannot, nor will not ever understand the depths of such cruelty and depravation in a person. Never.
Lisa was 6.

It goes without saying that this story is beyond awful. I can't even go there, so I am trying to look at this situation from a clinical perspective.
Hayes is only 26, and much younger than that emotionally because he started using drugs at the usual age. He did not have the insight to see that he could not handle a partner with small children, or the smarts to see that what he was doing was wrong.
