    Please remember when leaving a comment on my blog that all comments are subject to the blog owners discretion. I do believe in freedom of speech, however, that right is not absolute. Here are the rules: 1 - Please remember the victim(s) first and foremost. Do not come here to comment only on the offender(s). My blog focuses on the victim(s). Do not glorify the killer(s). No negative comments about the victim. NO VICTIM BLAMING. 2 - I will not tolerate hate filled speech, vulgar or derogatory remarks about a victim. I will remove comments that go against this. I will not remove comments just because they do not match my beliefs, in fact, I welcome them! However, that being said, I will remove those that I find offensive, argumentative just for the sake of starting an argument that does not add to the post, hate-filled speech, etc. 3-No comments in ALL CAPS, or CoMeNtS. They are rude and difficult to read. I have had many complaints about it so no more. 4-Comments must be in English only and easy to read (meaning no text language, shortening words, etc.). Have respect for those who don't do text messaging or other lingo. 5 - ALL COMMENTS LEFT BY COMMENTORS ARE THEIR OWN AND THEIR OPINIONS. THEY DO NOT CONSTITUTE FACTS. NOR IS THE BLOG OWNER RESPONSIBLE FOR ANYONE'S OPINIONS OR FEELINGS. STATEMENTS MADE AS COMMENTS ARE OPINIONS, GIVEN FREELY BY THE COMMENTORS.

Parents From Hell: Heather Maxine Barron and her boyfriend, Kareem Ernesto Leiva, charged with the torture and murder of her 10-year-old son, Anthony Avalos


Anthony Avalos

This is a case just like Gabriel Fernandez. This child, and his siblings, have been abused for years. CPS knew about the abuse but just plain ignored it. This child did not deserve the torture and abuse that he suffered at the hands of his mother’s boyfriend. And of course, his mother just ignored it. Watch, she is going to say she was afraid of him and could do nothing. Sorry. He was YOUR CHILD. He should have come first. And the rest of the children. A mother should do everything and anything to protect their children. Even if it means being hurt yourself. Personally, I would give my life for my daughter and even my grandchildren. They mean everything to me. If you can’t or won’t take care of your children, DON’T HAVE THEM. Or give them to someone who will love them and care for them. This makes me so angry. He was only 10 years old. I am sure all he wanted was his mother’s love and affection. I hope it made them feel all warm and fuzzy inside to beat on him, not feed him for hours or days, and do other torturous things to this child. Yes, he was just a child who could not defend himself. Now, he is gone. He has no opportunity to make a life for himself, experience so many things that life has to offer, fall in love, have children, even experience ups and downs in this life. I hope that they are happy now that they have saved him from this life. And just because he said he liked boys. That meant he deserved this, huh? Well, I have hopes for your lives and your lives after this. May you burn in hell forever.
