Michael P. Burke Charged with Pouring Boiling Water into Daughter’s Tub

Boiling waterLet’s see…who’s up today on our constant parade of parental miscreants? Ah, yes, here’s a lovely specimen. And yet, while it’s a horrible story, there’s also a story of love and tenderness wrapped inside of it.

That love and tenderness doesn’t come from Michael P. Burke of Colorado Springs, Colorado, though. This bastard was already up on misdemeanor child abuse charges for DWI-ing around town with his two young girls in the car. But that was nothing compared to what happened next. Burke has admitted to at least one investigator that he poured boiling water into his 9-year-old daughter’s bath and forced her to sit in it for 30 minutes while she screamed, “It’s going to kill me!” The “loving father” then forced her to lay on the floor for 30 minutes, and pushed her head down with his foot when she tried to get up. When her 12-year-old sister tried to call the cops, Burke kicked his older daughter so hard that it left a womping bruise.

Burke told the investigator that he “lost it”. No, Mr. Burke. You didn’t “lose it”. You took 10 to 15 minutes to boil two pots of large water on a stove before dumping them into your little girl’s bath. When she screamed in pain and terror, you held her in and let the water tear away at her flesh. Your act was cold and premeditated. You’re a sadistic fuck who delights in controlling and torturing other people. Striking a child once, out of anger? That’s “losing it”. Subjecting a 9-year-old to an hour of torture? That’s the mark of a depraved human being.

Where in God’s name does the “love and tenderness” come in here? It comes from Burke’s ex-girlfriend, who fled this tyrannical dad after he allegedly slashed the tires of her car. Concerned for the safety of the girls, she stopped by their mobile home, where the two told her what had gone down. The girls had tried to call police, but Burke had stopped them. The ex then devised a plan to get Burke out of the mobile home long enough for the girls to run to the club house at the trailer park and dial 911.

Goddess knows what would’ve happened to those girls if this woman, who wasn’t even a blood relation, hadn’t been concerned enough to keep tabs on their well-being. She showed more love toward these two in this one incident than their own father likely ever has in their entire lives. The thought of those two children being subjected to that savagery sickens me.

Michael P. Burke faces up to 12 years in prison. But, hey – let’s just put him in a bathtub of boiling water for an hour and call it even. Whaddya say, prosecutors?

    Fuck Im SICK of hearing about fuck stains like this! I would like to boil this fucker alive myself after I castrate him without anestesia. This angers me to no end, I don’t want to see him killed, I just want to see him live in so much agony that he prays to me directly to me to kill him. I want him to hear him scream and dance to it as if it were some beautiful sonota! People like that I hate with all my heart, mind, and soul. My wife was an abused child, she never got over it and her shit stain father got away with it. I would gladly give up my own freedom and march willingly into hell or prison if I could just have the pleasure of bringing one of these sadistic abusive pig fuckers with me!

    I am the one who called the police on this monster. I lived a couple of houses away for about a year and seen some problems. The girls were always so helpful and would do anything not to go home. I figured it was just that he drank to much. The girls never said anything about physical abuse. Interesting enough after the boiling water charge, he was released from jail and then when I looked to see if he was back in jail for anything, he was and had a charge of “Violent Crime Causing Death”. I found out the girls were ok but still haven’t found out what he did or who he killed. I am supposed to testify against him tomorrow and am worried since he knows who I am and where I live. He has a $300,000 bond so hopefully he won’t be out anytime soon. The other bad thing about this whole thing was the girl had been burned 3 days prior to her coming to me. The girlfriend and their grandmother both knew and didn’t get her help sooner.

    Children do not vote and sadistic A hole parents doo.
    Children have no rights… For that matter the abuse laws came about because of animal rights laws..
    YES!! You did read that correctly …. domestic pets had rights before children. You could actually be charged with a crime for abusing your dog but totally be within the law to beat your child.
    Even today although laws exist against abusing children …. inconsistancy rules.
    They cannot sign a legal document but Break a law? Then they are somehow magically old enough to be accountable.

    Angie …. The problem is that we as a society presume that for one to donate eggs and sperm makes them a parent.
    It really doesn’t.

    First off, great site. Second, what kind of parent could do such a thing? That is just sick and it makes my heart melt. I really hope he gets put away for a long time.

    This sadistic fuck deserves to be put in an industrial boiler and left there for a couple of days for what he did. I hope he rots in hell and thank God for the ex who came to check on the girls! It pains me to imagine the wounds these girls will suffer emotionally for the rest of their lives let alon the physical ones. I once looked after a child who’s previous babysitter poured boiling water onto his hands after he touched something he wasn’t supposed to-I’ll never forget the story or the sight. You’re right, this was obviously pre-meditated with serious effort and thought put into it-why do these horrible excuses for human life get such light sentences for their actions?
