24-year-old Austin Hamilton of Tampa, Florida was recently arrested for the beating death of his girlfriend’s one-year-old son, Sincere Williams. A coroner’s report said that Sincere died from blunt force trauma to the abdomen. Hamilton allegedly confessed to police that he struck Sincere ten times with a belt and dropped him on his head after Sincere urinated on him during a diaper change.
I was spared diaper changes since my (step)kids were out of diapers when I got married. However my dad told me that I was quite the surprise geyser when I was in diapers. Considering my dad was not the most calm man I ever knew how much rage did Hamilton have to possess in order to do that to one-year-old child? He would have had to have either taken off his belt or gone to get a belt before striking the child which for most people would have been enough time to give them pause about what they were about to do. Also Hamilton had a child from a previous relationship so I doubt this was a new experience for him.
Sincere’s mother was working at the time of the beating. The couple had known each other for years and she thought Hamilton would be fine with the children since he had children of his own. However Hamilton in the past has been charged with battery, domestic violence and had been investigated by CPS. All charges were dropped but you have to think that sometimes where there’s smoke there’s a raging inferno of a forest fire sometimes.
There’s nothing wrong with screening the background of your significant other. It may save your children’s lives and yours.

Samuel Cabrera (Angry looking little troll isn’t he?)
Father Accused of Beating 3-Month-Old Son to Death:
Earlier this month 3-month-old Samuel Cabrera Jr. of Philadelphia was pronounced dead at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. We’ll get to the who and why in a moment.
Samuel Jr. was rushed to the hospital for being unresponsive and doctor’s noticed he was covered in bruises. As is all too usual in these cases the Breeders gave conflicting stories. The egg layer stated that the bruises were from the baby’s father performing CPR. The sperm donor in question, 27-year-old Samuel Cabrera, allegedly told police that he was trying to knock the dog off of the bed. Cabrera the elder must have some massive leg strength then because reports say that Samuel Jr. had broken bones, a crushed liver, a crushed spleen and all of his abdominal organs had been crushed. That’s one hell of a nudge because it doesn’t sound anything like that he was beating the baby repeatedly in the abdomen.
Cabrera’s 15-month-old daughter is also said to have bruises and is now living with a relative. His squeeze’s kids have also been removed from the home however she has not been charged as of yet.
I lived in and around Philly most of my life. It’s kind of like a prison. Most everybody is up to some kind of no good (at least in the neighborhoods that I’m familiar with) yet when a child is harmed it can galvanize the city or a neighborhood. I don’t believe in vigilantism but if there was ever someone who was in desperate need of good old-fashioned Philly street justice it’s this scumbag. Maybe instead they should let the top MMA guys use him as a human sparring dummy. That way he could feel just a fraction of what he put his own defenseless flesh and blood through.

Father ‘murdered three-year-old daughter after finding out her mother was having an affair’:
The face you see above is that of 22-year-old Richard Green. Last year, Green discovered that his girlfriend (and mother of his child) Natalie Critchley was having an affair with another parent that she’d met at the day care where she worked. Richard was pissed. So pissed, in fact, that he brutally attacked his daughter Lia Green, repeatedly punching and kicking the 3-year-old. She was later found unresponsive and not breathing at her home in Preston, England. She was taken to hospital but died shortly after arriving. At the hospital, doctors discovered that Lia was bruised from her neck down to her legs, suffering from injuries usually only seen in car crash victims. She died from blunt force trauma to the abdomen. She had been struck so hard in the stomach that her bowel was severed. What sort of sick piece of shit would do that to ANY child, let alone their own?
Lia’s egg donor isn’t much better. She is accused of allowing her daughter’s death by not calling emergency services until Lia stopped breathing. Even as the toddler lay dying in hospital, Natalie’s behaviour was described as ‘strange’ by hospital staff. She was allegedly more pre-occupied with texting than asking after her severely injured child. She is also on trial.
Nasty and nastier.
Not surprisingly, social services had been involved with Lia before. A social worker had visited the home following a referral, but reported no concerns for Lia’s safety. Just two weeks later, her father battered her to death. It didn’t matter how pissed he was at Lia’s egg donor, Lia was an innocent toddler. Nothing would have been justification enough for what happened to this little girl.
