Associated Press ^ | June 29, 2012 | MIKE HOUSEHOLDER

Posted on 06/29/2012 11:31:42 AM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. (AP) -- A man was charged Friday with assaulting a 4-year-old boy weeks earlier, a day after the missing child's body was found under the porch at the youngster's home on a mid-Michigan Indian reservation.

Anthony Bennett, 20, was charged in a federal criminal complaint in Bay City, where he was expected to appear in court. He is not charged in the death of Carnel Chamberlain, but the complaint details the reported physical abuse of the child.

Let’s hope he died of something particularly painful. Oh, and the mother should suffer the same fate.

I don’t get it. What is wrong with these women who hook up with some monster who brutalizes their children? She should have shot the SOB the first time he hurt her son.

Well that's one expensive court case and prison sentence we won't have to pay for.

Don’t put your faith in Poorly worded headlines. Read the story. It was the boy who was found dead; not the man charged.

Unfortunately it’s just a very poorly written headline. No wonder the papers are going broke...the man arrested wasn’t found dead, just the boy. Nothing in the story suggests the accused has died.

Looks to me like this is a terrible title. Aftyer reading the article it seems it refers to the boys death. Very sad.

Nope. It’s completely backwards. The boy was found dead. The man has been charged with assault, but not with his death (at least at this point in time...)

What am I missing here?

The headline is open to interpretation.

I take it and from the excerpt that the boy was found dead, and a 20 yr old has now been charged with abusing him, but not charged with his death.

I didn’t get that the perp was found dead.

Oh, rats! I thought it meant the thug was dead. I hope he and the mother spend the rest of their lives in prison.

Terrible headline, but seems about the time the boy’s body was found, a charge was made against an alleged perp but for prior abuse of the boy, not his death.

That doesn’t mean he won’t still be charged with the death.

Remain to be seen, I guess.

I say hand him over to tribal authorities and let them deal with it.

I remember a case a few yeas back near Traverse City where an indian had raped and murdered a child. He turned himself in to the state police because he didn’t want the tribe to get him.

Man charged with assaulting Mich. boy found dead

It should have read like this:

Assaulted Mich. Boy Found Dead. Man Charged.

Misleading headline...

Boy was found dead, who according to charges filed had been abused in the recent past.

The alleged perp was charged with the prior abuse about the time the boy’s body was found.

The perp is not dead.

Have yet to see charges filed for murdering the boy.

Talk about a misleading title. Where did the author go to school ?

It seems it has misled at least the first few posters.

The headline is open to interpretation.

The headline is an example of GO BACK AND DO IT AGAIN.

Communication is the purpose of an 'article'. Making ambiguous statements seems counter to effective communication.

I THINK you can ask the mods to remove it, if you can get their attention by pinging admin moderator and requesting it.

At least that way you won’t get so many replies after you already know.

It’s completely backwards.

True. 'Man' is used as the 'subject noun' when the sentence should have started with 'boy'.

The sentence is grammatically incorrect beyond a shadow of a doubt. It cannot be read 'properly'.

You mean 'allegedly' killed him. They haven't even charged him yet.

yeah it does sound like the man was found dead. Maybe someone like the boy’s real dad will do the job

I agree. Women who stay with any man who is unkind, never mind violent, towards their child should leave him/kick him out in the LEAST. I know morals are dead in most folk’s minds today, but just imagine if these women made a man WAIT to get his sex...she’d find out 99% didn’t give a damn about her...only the sex. Then if she never found that 1% at least she could raise her child in an environment free of a sex crazed dog.

The ‘IDIOTS’, (yes idiots, after all this is AP (used to mean something), and there must be editors, copy writers and at least one or two semi intellects in the ‘chain of custody’ regarding this story.

He has all the right words, amazing what a SIMPLE realignment and comma can provide:

“Mich. boy found dead, man charged with assault(ing)”

And THEY make the big bucks and (supposedly) influence people.
