Police: Dad punched, slapped 5--month-old son; baby has broken ribs (Holly Hill, Florida)

Yet another abuser dad from Florida. This POS "allegedly" punched his 3-month-old son so hard that he broke the baby's ribs. Poor Daddy was annoyed by all the crying, don't you know.

Sometimes I think that in Florida, abuser daddies are more common that oranges.

The big problem in Florida is that they have made it almost impossible for these moms to leave these guys, because even abusers get visitation and shared custody these days. And Orders of Protection and the like? Check out how much that helped the now dead girlfriend of Florida dad CRAIG WALL, who is also a "suspect" in the death of his infant son.
