I know Patricia and I honestly do not think that she was the one abusing them. However, I think a mother should be the very first person to protect her babies. She failed. I do think she is as guilty as Kenneth for not putting a stop to it. Someone I know said well love is blind. Really? No amount of love in this world would ever allow me to let someone hurt my babies. I think they both deserve the death penalty. They will more than likely get killed in prison before they are put to death. Or at the very least find out what it's like to be beaten and abused. This just breaks my heart. Hugged my daughter so many times in the last few days. Sad...just so so sad.
@Lr103 I didn't mean on here. But I have heard and seen people claiming hes is innocent..he admitted to it though...so I mean I'd really like to tell all those people what idiots they are but I just keep my mouth shut.
I know Patricia and I worked with her for some time. I just talked to her a couple of weeks ago and asked her how her babies were and she said they were great and looking forward to Christmas.
She wasn't home when this particular beating occured and while I never knew her to be anything but a loving mother I believe she knowingly left her kids with a man she knew was hurting them. She did change after she got with this guy. She made the comment that "I guess I'm gonna live a thug life since I'm in love with a thug". She was never like that before. She was so sweet and loved her boys.
With that said...A mother should be the very first person to protect her kids. Someone I know said love is blind. Blind??? Really?? No amount of love in this world would ever allow me to let you hurt my babies. I think that she is as guilty as he is simply for leaving them with him. @sla2010, I said the same thing. Ty died from being beaten with a belt. Can any of you imagine how terrified these little boys were? Can any of you imagine how many blows it took before they stopped crying? This all just makes me sick. I cannot comprehend letting someone hurt my babies.
I worked with Patricia for some time and I have to say that this is something I would have never seen coming. I just asked her 2 weeks ago how her babies were and she said they were all great and looking forward to Christmas. I know that she was working 2 jobs and sadly leaving her kids home with that scumbag. I saw a bunch of people proclaiming his innocence and so on...but if I read correctly they said in the paper today that he admitted to beating Ty.
I sat and cried when I herd the news. You guys can argue about all of this but the bottom line is a sweet little boy is dead and another one is laying in a hospital in critical condition. I cannot even begin to imagine how terrified these little boys had to be. How helpless they were against this guy.
I applaud the teacher and others who reported concerns of abuse however maybe DCFS needs to revamp their policies. If they had acted just a day sooner this may not have happened.
A mother should be the very first person to protect their children. She may not have been home while this particular beating occured but there is no way she did not know that abuse was taking place. Someone said love is blind. There is no amount of love in this world that would ever allow me to let someone harm my babies.
All I wanted to do all day today is hug my daughter and play with her and remind her exactly how much mommy loves her.
This had nothing to do with where she lived, her race, her income...It had nothing to do with having kids out of wedlock or living with someone your not married to.
This is such a terrible terrible tragedy.
