Sheesh. :-( From other articles I've read about this, sounds like the man was a nutcase who thought the boy had demons in him.

"He just pushed them off and went back to it."

How is that possible?

How is that possible?

Granted, the child might have already been dead before the first passers-by arrived, but...

How can you not stop a man who is brutally beating a child if there's the slightest possibility the child is still alive?

Well, when you've been taught all your life to "wait for the authorities"...

Dial 911, and help is only minutes away.

Dial 1911, and help is right at hand.

In the source I read, it said an elderly couple were the first to stop. Perhaps that would explain why, absent a legally concealed weapon, the assailant was not stopped.

All the more reason.

M***** F****** might have been able to push me off, but he would have teeth and fingernails embedded in him afterwards.

But then I'm not yet ready to be defined as elderly.

Fortunately I live in a state where it would be legal for me to terminate his activity the same way the Deputy did, and to carry the means to do so with me.
