There it is in the news again.

A "man" has been arrested for the beating death of a 2-year-old. The child's "crime"? He dirtied his pants.

I put the word "man" in quotation marks because what kind of man beats up a helpless kid for soiling his underwear? Isn't it bad enough these so called "men" feel it necessary to beat up adults who can, hopefully, at least defend themselves, that they have to strike small children, too?

My mother, in her old-fashioned way, would call the "man" an "animal." Sorry, Mom. Most animals are not nearly so loathsome. This so-called "man" is lower than what he beat up the child for leaving in his diaper.
