When I read the headline I fully expected the article to be from Atlanta. We’ve had a rash of abuse cases like this in the last few weeks.

Tom Valdez, the boy's grandfather said relatives were planning a birthday party for the boy on Friday and had brought over a birthday cake.

When they arrived at the door no one answered until they kept pounding on the door because they suspected something was wrong.

When they got inside, they found Christopher’s body and called police, Valdez said. Officials said the boy had been dead for several hours before emergency crews were called.


Somebody! Come help dig out a new ring of Hell!

I never understand women putting their “boyfriends” over their children. They’ll do more to keep some slob of a man than seeing that their children are okay. Kill them both.

As a parent of two boys age 3 and 4, stories like this have a profound effect on me. I think prison is too good for these two.

Stepfathers are significantly more dangerous for the mom's offspring than genetic fathers (obvious, of course). See here for data.

Once again... the boyfriend (and the so called Mom assisted). Makes me sick. Not sure why but one part of the article just sickened me. It discusses how the boy’s granddaddy brought over a birthday cake (the boy was already murdered). Four short years on this planet isn’t right. So very, very sad.

Prayers for this little child. His birthday which should be fun and filled with friends, cake and ice cream, balloons and presents but instead he is found inside his “home” dead. That was his present from his mom and her boyfriend for his birthday.
I cannot for the life of me imagine this happening.
I cannot for the life of me understand how this happens. I cannot for the life of me understand how any woman will allow a “boyfriend” (which btw is a juvenille term no adult woman should be using for having a man live with her and her child) at any rate...
I am saddened to the core over this. I am losing more and more faith every single day about how far and how low we have come that I don’t think it will ever be turned around again.
Our precious babies and children being murdered before AND after they are born. Continuous stories of missing babies and children and never finding their remains and no one responsible for the crime.
My heart is breaking for this little child and what he must have endured and on his birthday ... the day he was born he lives then dies on his 4th birthday. I have tears over this and just had to vent. I know this little boy is in heaven and that’s good because he certainly must have suffered the pangs of hell over his short little life time. I am glad he is in heaven but oh how I wish he could have lived a happy life with a loving family. When does all of this stop? When do people get back the souls they have lost? When does this country become whole once again? God help us all.

That’s all we can hope for. Let the prisoners take care of these reprobates. The defense lawyers will be crapping their pants trying to come up with a “reason” for this to have happnened. There is NO REASON OR EXCUSE!

MORE-— A Cook County judge spared Southwest Side mom Crystal Valdez jail when he convicted her of battering her 3-year-old son last month.

“relatives discovered the toddler’s body wrapped in a comforter, his bruises disguised with makeup concealer,” “Family members want to know why Christopher was allowed to stay with his mother and Ruiz following her conviction Oct. 21 for domestic battery.”
Accused of a domestic battery of the child in July, Crystal Valdez was sentenced to parenting classes and given a conditional discharge last month, court records show. An Illinois Department of Children and Family Services investigation in August did not substantiate allegations of abuse against her but did find that she had neglected her child, DCFS spokesman Kendall Marlowe said.

A tragic failure of the liberal-minded court system and pansy-assed social workers who have taken over child protective services in the not-so-great State of Illinos.
