    Aggravated manslaughter? Are you serious? This is a defenseless baby. Why not murder? Where is the justice? And people wonder why people keep doing terrible things. Because there is no punishment to fit the crime. They get a slap on the wrist, do a little time, get 3 free meals a day, a free bed and be out and do it again.
    Our judicial system is disgusting. Too liberal

    I have no words. The evil that possess some people and lead them to hurt poor innocent children/babies like this – its just mind numbing! I hope “Bubba” and God take care of this piece of crap. He does not deserve to live. Lord please accept this baby into your loving arms, something he obviously didn’t experience here on this earth.

    OMG what the heck is wrong with these people. Poor baby. I sure hope this little thing did not suffer. He does not deserve to breathe anymore. Where the heck was the mother?

    The only punishment that will suffice is to bash his skull in, just as he did this poor innocent child.

    In my opinion Mr. Freeman should be placed UNDER the jail.
