Police: boy died from horrific abuse
6 ABC ^ | July 16, 2011 | DANN CUELLAR

Posted on 07/16/2011 3:35:16 PM PDT by bkopto

Police released horrific new details Friday on how they believe three-year-old Jaquinn Brewton died, and they say it was no accident.

Police now say the child was murdered through long-term physical abuse allegedly at the hands of his godmother, 22-year-old Nadera Batson and her 23-year-old boyfriend, Marcus King. They believe King, a 6' 8", 225-pound man, kicked and punched the little boy over a period of time.

Police believe the couple used a blowtorch to burn the little boy on various parts of his body.

Hang a sign on them and let we the public mete out the punishment.

If that isn’t possible, release them into the general population in jail.

And yet, if they have some posed Christmas photos with the boy, the jury foreman will describe them as “loving parents” after their acquittal.

I hear you. I live near Philly and didn't hear anything about this. I don't really watch the news, so...

People preying on the young and elderly really sets me off.

God isn’t remotely pleased with such either.

Sadly, the perps often had similar childhoods.

The beat goes on.

Until someone with a big hammer puts a stop to it.

Let God arise and His enemies be scattered.

Let all unrepentant, unconfessed, unforgiving souls be removed from the planet.

May his little soul rest finally, in peace. I have to agree with others, let both of these vermin be dealt with by the public while the authorities turn a blind eye. It may be vigilante justice but the justice system isn’t working anymore.

Yes, and I also seem to remember, paraphrasing, 'that those who harm the little ones would be better off tying a millstone around their necks and hurling themselves into the sea.'

I hate to be a cynic but unless there is a cute little while girl involved you are not likely to hear much about such cases.

Consider what would have happened if Casey Anthony were 45 instead of 25 and weighed 320 instead of 120. Do you think the media would have given the case much attention?

INDEED.

And, while I believe—truly believe there is

ABSOLUTELY NO EXCUSE for such horror . . .

one has to wonder what rottenness of soul within a person could even tolerate—much less give in to such—and that repeatedly!

Demonized is the only possibility, imho.

But demons don’t inhabit without invitation—conscious or unwitting dabbling otherwise.

Even if they don’t get the death penalty, the prison general population will take care of them.

First of all, I hope the woman "godmother" involved in this gets as much time as the man. It seems like the females often escape as harsh of punishment because they always come up with "I was abused too" defense.

Secondly, six kids for the bio mom and probably multiple dads and no way to look after them. It would have been better to have given the little guy up for adoption, but that would have taken some thought process, courage, and concern for someone other than herself. Not to this level, but this abuse of kids by being born without dads to ever know goes on millions of times all over the country. Kids pay the price, this boy paid the ultimate price, and we pay the price both financially and as far as the societal impact.

You read my mind - I guess we’re all thinking about that when we see this unspeakable, heartbreaking story. Such horror done to a sweet, helpless, innocent child! My heart aches for him. Why does God allow such evil and pain to befall one of his little lambs?

And how in hell could anyone argue against the death penalty in such cases??? The way our society carries it out is far too sterile and humane for monsters such as these.

Oh yeah, almost forgot how the bigshot inmates can make their bones shanking child killers.

However, when brutal murders like this happen the first thing that pops in my mind is bringing back public execution.

“It would have been better to have given the little guy up for adoption, but that would have taken some thought process, courage, and concern for someone other than herself.”

Many states (I think it’s the state, not the city) have laws that allow a mother to drop a child off at either a hospital or police station, with no questions asked, if she cannot care for that child. They should ALL have such a law and run PSA’s to make it known.

Thank God this poor little boy is now safe in the arms of Jesus, where these monsters can no longer touch or torment him. Where there is no more pain, no more sorrow, no more suffering and where he will experience joy for all eternity:

"And I heard a loud voice from the throne, saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is among men, and He will dwell among them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself will be among them, and He will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there will no longer be any death; there will no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain; the first things have passed away.”" (Revelation 21:3-4)

Auto accident, actually ... but for children who are killed or injured by another person, the mother’s boyfriend is the most common by several multiples.

I favor the death penalty but I don’t want the state to wield that kind of power (how this can be done is an idea worthy of a post in itself). However, in cases like this, the perps aren’t human beings and need to be put down by the nearest vet ASAP.

Had we had the death penalty these things might not be happening to the degree they are today...as well as many other crimes worthy of the death penalty.

Evil is what it is..murderers should not be allowed to live, allowing them to do so is an affront to justice...and worse to God who established it.

Additionally the mother should not be held guiltless either.

You must be as much a fan of Geraldo as I and many others here. He would call them “devoted and loving” from pictures alone!!

I have a 2 1/2 year old grandson. If I lost him in this manner I would gladly settle the matter in person. I’m 75 years old - what would I have to lose?

“”””Jaquinn was left with the family friend.
Ashley Brewton says she tried to visit her son several times over the past few months, but was denied access to them. She and other relatives wonder if they could’ve done more to save the little boy.””””

Good grief! Where are people’s heads? What takes up so much of their time in a day that they couldn’t make regular visits to see what was going on with this little one? Couldn’t get access!! BULL!

Where were the neighbors? Nothing like that can happen without a child screaming in pain and for help!!!

This is infuriating! We need a law in this country that ALL MURDERERS of children will suffer the same punishment they inflicted on the most vulnerable of our population. Apply the very same method!! No prison time whatsoever.

Why does God allow such evil and pain to befall one of his little lambs?

If you have that kind of power, when do you stop? The alternative to giving free will free reign is that we all become robots -- or slaves. God isn't interested in either of those things.

Those of us who are parents would never deny to our children any wish that was within our power to give -- provided only that it would not harm them; so The Father does not forbid these evil things because the alternative would harm us more.

The way our society carries it out is far too sterile and humane for monsters such as these.

I only regret that we cannot kill these two as slowly, or as many times, as they deserve.

Geraldo is a complete fool. I've never understood why Fox decided to give him a lifeline. If his vacuous tabloid phase in syndication wasn't bad enough, they should have let his career suffer the fate it deserved for his many inane comments during the Clinton impeachment hearings while he was on MSNBC. He claimed to have undergone a transformation after 9/11, but sadly -- as was the case with a lot of the rest of the country -- it's worn off. Time he was cashiered.

I have to wonder what kind of a parent he is, and what kind of parents the people on that jury were, and what kinds of grandparents the Anthony's were: as I told my own kids: the first time you turn around and find your two year old has wandered off in the department store or the amusement park, after literally turning your head for no more than five seconds, there is a fear that shoots through your body from the bottom of your feet to the top of your head. There is no fear you ever experience in your life that's like that fear: pure unrelenting horror until the moment your child is in your arms again, and how her parents could possibly believe something was not wrong with that going on for a month, how they could not do anything themselves during that time I will never understand.

Me -- I would accept the story that my daughter (or son) was trying to do everything she could for maybe one day. My wife, twelve hours, tops.

The most horrid part is the fact they pick boyfriend over kids. I don't mean mixed up teen mothers I mean mid 20's too late thirties. The courts also in most abuse and severe negligence cases give the poor kids back to the mother after several years of foster care.

In the current system even family intervention as in taking the kids out of the home and adopting the kids is now for the most part impossible. If you go against such a mother {legally} to protect the kids the courts will rip you apart worse than the abusers.
