CHOKED UP

UNFORTUNATELY WE ALL WILL PAY FOR HIS PUBLIC DEFENDER....FORTUNATELY WE WONT PAY FOR HIS PUBIC DEFENDER ,WHICH HE WILL NEED MOST ONCE HIS FELLOW INMATES LEARN ABOUT HIM. HOPE THEY SEE HIM ON TV IN JAIL.SOAP ON A ROPE WONT GIVE HIM HOPE.WHOEVER HAD A CHILD BY HIM WAS BLIND IN ONE EYE AND COULDNT SEE OUT THE OTHER.

Lock up this animal !

Lock him up and lose the key! Castration should be considered as well on this wild animal.His incarceration will be a miserable experience because inmates do not look highly upon these animals. He will be the recipient of some well deserved mistreatment. I hope you are tough because everyone is going to be looking the other way ! Attempted murder should be the appropiate charge Mr. Ben David.

CHOKES CHILDREN

PUT HIM IN JAIL AND LET THE INMATES KNOW WHAT HE DID WHILE HE AWAITS TRIAL WITHOUT BOND.

Father charged with choking baby

FELONY CHILD ABUSE!!!!!!!!! How about attempted MURDER?!!! Its a blessing he didn't kill the baby. Hope he rotts in jail for the rest of his miserable life. I can't imagine what woman laid down with him & made a baby?!!! S-C-A-R-Y!!!!!!!!!!

FILTH

This pig should be shot ! An 8 week old baby?????? What on earth could a baby do to provoke that, cry? Pathetic pig.

Baby Choker

OMG!! THAT FATHERED A CHILD? PROVING ONCE AND AGAIN THAT BIRTHCONTROL SHOULD BE AN INGREDIENT IN BEER.

Now that is too dang funny!

Now that is too dang funny! Could not have said it better myself. How could anyone try and hurt a 2 month old child. This man is Sick.

birth control

ok, that's the funniest thing i ever heard. but on a serious note, birth control availability needs to be more widespread. I know of at least ten babies of teens right now that could have been prevented with birth control . We need a birth control mobile, just like the blood mobile to go to every street corner all year long and hand it out for free. This will be very necessary to control the over-population problem on our beautiful planet Earth.

Even that won't work

As long as people are financially rewarded for breeding irresponsibly, they will continue to view childbirth as a money-making opportunity. What does another mouth to feed mean to many people? Another Medicaid card...a bigger apartment in public housing...a larger food voucher allowance...and all too often, an extension in TANF, Work First, and all those programs that were SUPPOSED to eliminate permanent welfare, but have been subjected to a million loopholes.

What we need is to do away with a tax system based upon income and dependencies and then place an absolute, firm cap of two years on TANF, Medicaid, free childcare, and Public/Section 8 housing. After that, let their families or charities take care of them...or let them fend for themselves.

We have institutionalized lazy, incompetent, life mis-management. When someone screws up again and again and again we immediately reach for the checkbook instead of holding them down and forcibly sterilizing them.

Don't look at getting it

Don't look at getting it into schools, the school system still teaches to abstain rather than teaching to be safe.

Don't look at getting it

That is not true. They teach abstinence & safe sex in school. My child is taking it now in middle school in New Hanover County. It's up to the parent to decide which class the child takes.

The dark age still exists

Show some brains. Teachers don't need to teach anything. They know all they need to know about sex at 12 years old. If you don't think so, then you are ignorant. Get pregnant...have a baby...get free money...The American way!! Go Democraps!
Straight Republican ticket all the way on Nov. 2, 2010.
