    I can not even fathom such a thing. Not to mention what I would really like to say. What is with people, an innocent child that "god" gave you to love and and care and protect, not only 1 but 3 all together. I feel bad for those children and hopefully they repent enough for "god" to forgive them. UUUGGGGHHHHH!!! is all I can say.

    Whatever piece of trash could do this, will not only rot in hell, but will pay for it in prison. Thanks Quinn for making us support these slimeballs. OF course..innocent until proven guilty.

    How can anyone beat a child? This sickens me but at the same time hurts. I am a 24 year old mother of 4 kids ages 6, 5, 5, and 3. And God is my witness I couldn't ever even think of abusing my children for absolutely no reason. These two need to be given the DEATH penalty!!!
