beating a 2 year old with a belt... I guess this is "gangstah parenting"...

Pretty sick.... this perp deserves some significant discipline

it appears that he is following a pattern that has been passed down from his parents. The chain must be broken because it is all he knows we have to help people like this by reporting abusive parents, care takers etc... we could have prevented this tragic act.
