Daddy broke down in tears, huh? Crocodile tears?
Because the beating that dad ISAAC OLVERA himself administered caused bruising? What did you think a beating would cause, Dad? Smiley faces to break out all over the child's body? Methinks you're just crying because you were caught. You sure didn't seem to have much remorse while you were inflicting the beating, or you would have stopped.
But there's another really important point here. Is this abusive dad custodial? Watch the way the media muddles the issue. Mom is "estranged"--does that mean she lives elsewhere? Sure sounds like it. Since the Mom had to "learn" that her son didn't show up at school, and the note from the teacher went to the father, it sure sounds like Dad has physical custody at minimum.
So why doesn't anybody ask why? Why does the abusive father--tears and all--have custody? Who gave it to him and with what rationale?
But don't cry for Daddy. He's already out on bond--guess those superb acting skills came in handy. And you sure don't see anything here about this boy going back to his mother.
There's a whole lot here that's NOT being reported.

SAN ANTONIO -- Isaac Olvera reportedly broke down in tears asking for forgiveness when he saw photos of his son covered in bruises. Somerset Police said Olvera caused the bruises with a belt.
The 8-year-old was in trouble at school. A teacher sent home a note notifying the father about the boy's behavior.
The child's mother, who is estranged from the child's father, was concerned when she learned her son didn't show up at school. The following day a nurse checked on the child to find bruises on his arm.
The arrest warrant also notes red small dots on his neck which appeared to be carpet burns. The child also had a fingernail imprint on his cheek, police said.
Olvera is out on bond.
