Why did the “father” allegedly do this? Because this 3-year-old angel spit food on the couch. Patterson has admitted that he hit his son several times with a belt and his fists. Another curious thing is that he is a convicted sex offender, but he got visitation with his son, and not supervised visits. I do hope that whoever decided this will have to take responsibility for this. A 3-year-old child paid the ultimate price for this huge mistake.
