    It came over the nightly news that a Doctor from Italy (presumption is medical doctor, as here they usually say if it's not so) was arrested and removed from EPCOT today.

    Why? For kicking his three year old child in the face. It makes my stomach turn to think of if. Apparently, they were in Norway when it happened and two CMs ran to the child's aid. The child was crying and bleeding from the face. The parents (yes, the mother was there) both said that he slapped, not kicked the child, as he was not behaving and bothering his brothers.

    However, there were eye witnesses to the kicking.

    He has bonded out of jail, and no further info was provided.

    We once, years ago saw a man in DTD yank (presumably) his wife around by the neck, and shriek at her. We simply called 911, but never did see how it played out fully.

    I cannot imagine the life that poor child must have.

    If I saw something like that happen in front of me they would need two ambulances and they would be locking me up with that savage.

    I don't know where the child is, or whether s/he was brought to hospital for care. :(

    It would be darn near impossible to not intervene, wouldn't it?

    I am hearing stories like this FAR too much these days. It makes me sick and so angry I can't breath.

    There is a special place in hell..

    There is a photo of this animal. I can not believe this animal is a doctor.

    What a b....dy low life. What worries me is that the wife claimed it was just a smack not a kick, but neither is acceptable, he sustained a nasty cut and swelling. That poor little chap has to go home with that.

    What will happen to the man, will he be deported or could he be jailed over there?

    If I'd witnessed that, they would have had to drag me off the father.

    Course, I'm afraid that if I saw it, they'd actually just need a body bag for him.

    Some people make me sick :( they don't deserve children, there are lots of people out there that can't have them and when you see animals like that it breaks my heart.

    I hope they prosecute the pig, lock him up over there and don't let him go home to Italy. Three years old for gods sake, it's not just the physical damage it the psycological damage as well. Your dad is someone you look up to, who protects you and makes everything better not who abuses you :mad:









    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.
    Winne the Pooh - A A Milne



    A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.

    Boggles the mind. I am so encouraged that so many would intervene. I would hope that at the instant I saw it I would do the exactly the same and drop kick the guy since he likes kicking so much. I like to think that I would.
