Gotta Learn ‘Em While They’re Young

Update: Via KipEsquire come word that the father (and I’m being generous here) was convicted. Here’s hoping he gets life w/o parole.

I saw this earlier today and didn’t have the heart to comment on it. It was just that horrible. Still is.

But the reality is, this is Dubya’s America now, where ya have to beat the gay out of them while they’re still young.

A 21 year old Tampa man is charged with murder after his 3-year old son was pummeled into unconsciousness and then died.

Ronnie Paris Jr. went on trial for his own life this week in a Tampa courtroom. The toddler’s mother, Nysheerah Paris, testified that her husband thought the boy might be gay and would force him to box.

Nysheerah Paris told the court that Paris would make the boy fight with him, slapping the child in the head until he cried or wet himself. She said that on one occasion Paris slammed the child against a wall because he was vomiting.

The court was told there had been a history of abuse by Paris. Prosecutor Jalal Harb said that in 2002, the Florida Department of Children & Families placed the child in protective custody after he had been admitted to the hospital several times for vomiting.

He was returned to his parents Dec. 14. A month later he went into a coma and was rushed to hospital. Six days later he was removed from life support and died. An autopsy showed there was swelling on both sides of his brain.

“He was trying to teach him how to fight,” Nysheerah Paris’ sister, Shanita Powell told the court. “He was concerned that the child might be gay.”

Well, he’s dead now. But at least he’s not gay. He was three years old.

Pardon me. I gotta go throw up now.

    He didn’t want his son to be gay and now he gets to enjoy gay sex for the rest of his life. I only hope his new friends beat him with the same love and compassion he showed his child.

    The gay issue aside. What the fuck was the mother doing during all of this? I love my husband dearly, but if he laid one finger on our child I would pack up and leave. It’s the mother’s job to protect her children if they are in danger. In my mind she’s just as guilty as the sperm donor. They should both go to prison for a very long time. I hope he learns to love the prison lifestyle. Bastard.
