Toddler Beaten, Killed with Game Controller

A sad statement on humanity, as in Pennsylvania a two-year-old was beaten and killed by her mother's boyfriend - with a video game controller.  Still worse, it was reported that the boyfriend had abused the child previously, yet the mother had not left him.

It was clear from the bruises and other injuries on the little girl's body that Sunday was not the first time she had been abused, Dauphin County coroner Graham Hetrick told WGAL-TV. He said it was one of the worst cases of child abuse he has ever seen.

Baez, 19, called for an ambulance Sunday and said (Harve) Johnson had brought the unconscious child to her, limp and wet from an attempt to revive her in a bathtub, a police affidavit said.

Johnson, 26, acknowledged beating the girl with a video game controller but did not say why, police said. Baez said Johnson had abused the girl in the past and that she heard the girl scream after Johnson beat her Sunday, according to the affidavit.

Bail was set at $200,000 for Johnson and $25,000 for Neida Baez (the mother), who was charged with endangering the welfare of a child because she did not intervene in the beating.

 humanity is failing. i really can not see how a mother can not leave a person like that. or why any person would take out their anger on a child like that is beyond my comprehension.

If I witnessed something like that I would have went apeshit on the guy... I'm skinny, but pound for pound devastating IMO(being dead serious)!

Violence against women & children enrages me!!!

I wouldn't say its all of humanity.. since most right minded people are appauled and would never do that to a child (or anyone)... i'd just say -100,000,000,000,000 to those bastards that let it / made it happen...

This is both extremely sad and sickening at the same time. The type of scum capable of such a heinous act is exactly why we have the death penalty. Upon his conviction, he should be taken directly to be executed. We should follow China's example for executions whereby the criminal is shot to death by bullets he is forced to pay for.

The mother is almost, if not just as guilty as her boyfriend. She should be put into a forced labor camp where she can work to pay for her own incarceration until she dies.

The evils of man truly know no limit.

why did they have to say game controller? that will just spark more anger into anti-gaming groups' hearts.

The news does usually report the type of murder weapon, but when they say a "game controller" people are always going to go after gaming.  Nobody ever goes after the cooking industry when someone is stabbed with a butcher knife.
