What would u do if ur baby boy was dead? i would get therapy for 12 months, take baths in toxic waste, then live my remaning moments as a murderer


number 17. That kids arms and legs were so long, its head was so friggin small, when i see that picture i gag. No person should be treated that way


That girl who donated her organs was brave. She gave up her life, To save 4 other people in need of organs. She deserved all the respect she got from those doctors during her last moments on this planet. R.I.P. Sweet little angel.


I read about that story where the two ten year olds killed that baby boy. The baby was really cute. They beat him to death with bricks after dropping him on his heads a few times. Then they tied his dead body to the railroad tracks where it was severed. I hope those two murderers burn in hell. What they did was HORRIBLE. ??????


There are many stories of young kids being abducted and killed. I don’t understand how some people can live with themselves, After knowing what they have done. That baby’s life was tragically shortened by those horrible ten year old boys. The sick thing about is that two year old child didn’t even do anything to deserve his fate. The ten year old boys only did for their sick pleasure. It’s heartbreaking to hear some of the things that happens on this planet.


Did you know that they got released in 2001 when they turned 18 so they are out running free.


Did you know that one got arrested AGAIN after being accused of downloading child porn? And also that they had to change their identities? And that the other one went to a gay lover to hide? So there are two murderers roaming around with new identities that we don’t even know about. It is possible that they might just strike again and kill another toddler or a preteen. Just to satisfy their own sick pleasure. Like Leya said.


2 years old isnt a baby


A two year old is still a baby. Not an infant but yes a baby. Even when they get to be toddlers they are still your babies. One day when you have children you’ll understand what the fear of just the mere thought of losing a child feels like, let alone the inexplicable sorrow a horrific murder like that poor little boys would bring.


I wish all the worst for that thief from Sudan.


There was no reason for that man to take that kid’s food. The man was well fed. But the child was on the streets, Starving.


Yeah I hope that guy starved to death and the kid survived
