    You are correct. When I wrote what I wrote the child was not dead. Yes the Father needs to go to prison for what he has done. But as I stated it is a shame that it had to come to this as he might have been sufering from PTSD and no one saw it and now there is a tragedy. IMHO I do believe that there was signs before this and people were afraid of speaking up. One has to wonder why the wife left after they had moved here and left the child with the dad. There are many questions that need to be answered, but the bottom line is that they dad has admited to this and now that the child is dead he needs to go away for a long time...

    Seriously? No really, seriously? I can not believe the outpouring of sympathy to a murderer. Where is the sympathy for his abused and murdered two year old child? Why didn't the So called friends call CPS? Because he served in the military? There are many who serve and don't kill their kids...even with PTSD. This is truly a tragedy. But don't cloak a man's evilness and poor judgement in the American flag and call him a victim. If this had been some depressed Joe Schmoe, people would jumped to condemn the actions.

    It is so sad that so many VETS do not get the needed help once they've committed their lives to serve our country. My uncle was a decorated. Vietnam Vet and has passed 4years ago and we are still waiting for the $300 they contribute to his funeral. Houston Vet Hospital is fabulous, otherwise, he never saw any benefits for serving his country. If your a veteran or a family member of one, please fight to get their benefits for them.

    My thoughts exactly. Marine, single Dad, working in a fast food place living in a garage struggling to survive. This is a classic case of PTSD. It's not an excuse, it's a disease.

    A father charged with injury to a child after his 2-year-old son was found unconscious in a League City garage told police he gets frustrated with the toddler and had been “hitting him harder than he should,” according to a probable cause affidavit.

    Sounds like we have a Marine who really needs some help as he may be suffering from PTSD.... Pray for the boy to recover and for his dad to be able to get the help that he needs.

    So sad. I would say what I really think but it would never get posted.
