This story is so shocking, I warn you that you will not be able to easily forget it. Can you imagine what would make a man so angry that he continues to beat a toddler after various people try to stop him? I'm glad he's dead...but that fact won't help the poor child.

Police shoot man as he beats toddler

TURLOCK, California (AP) -- Police killed a 27-year-old man as he kicked, punched and stomped a toddler to death despite other people's attempts to stop him on a dark, country road, authorities said.

Investigators on Sunday were trying to establish the relationship between the suspect and the child they say he killed Saturday night. The Stanislaus County coroner said the boy appeared to be between 1 and 2 years old based on his size, according to county sheriff's deputy Royjindar Singh.

"It's been a long night of wondering, 'Why?' -- not only for the officers and the passers-by who stopped and tried to help out, but for anyone. Why would somebody do this?" Singh said.

Singh said the coroner does not plan to confirm the identities of the suspect and victim until Monday. Because his injuries were so severe, the child will have to be identified through a blood or DNA test, he said.

The suspect had a child's car seat in the back of his four-door pickup truck. The truck caught the attention of an elderly couple at 10:13 p.m. Saturday because it was stopped in the two-lane road facing the wrong direction, Singh said.

As they got closer, the couple saw the man beating the toddler behind his truck and throwing the child on the ground, according to Singh. Two or three other cars stopped, an unusual number to be passing through the remote area surrounded by a dairy, a cow pasture, a cornfield and a farmhouse, he said.

i'll say this for this asshole...........

.......he's damn lucky it wasn't me.

he would have recieved the same merciless treatment from me but likely it would have been much, much worse.

i wouldn't have used a gun either. likely just my bare hands. i have the godgiven physical capability to take care of that type of situtation.

i can't believe though that passersby couldn't have mounted a better effort in greater numbers to overpower this perp.

i feel so bad for the little one it rips my heart out.

i absolutely hate child abusers or molesters.

they are an abomination against the human race. the only justice they deserve is violent death meted out by the society they are a stain on.

Sorry rooster - I must disagree with you.

Death would be too merciful for abusers and or molesters.

What they truly need is a steady diet of bread and water - locked in a cage never to see the light of day - and have the shit kicked out of them on a daily basis.

That would truly be poetic justice for each and every one of them.

Either one of the punishments suggested is ok with me, but first he has to be castrated. :evil:

I agree Cat and his penis transplanted to his forehead and all his fingers cut off in the mix - so he can't use them - even to pick his nose.
