What are diapers for, anyway?

Police: Texas solider beat daughter to death

Fort Bliss Soldier Dartarious Graham Allegedly Uses Belt To Kill 2-Year-Old Daughter

Notorious and Lizardmeth...oops....Dartorious and Elizabeth (honest mistake) - two of the three responsible for Peyton's death.

The two seemingly normal looking people above are Dartarious Graham, 20, and his wife, Elizabeth Graham (no age given), of El Paso Texas. They, along with a cousin of the father, have been arrested and are being held in connection with the death of two-year-old Peyton Graham. Peyton is the biological child of both Dartorious and Elizabeth. Since I don’t think either of these two individuals deserve to be called by name any longer, I will simply refer to them as Notorious and Loose-screw. Yes, I came up with those myself. Not very original, perhaps, but at least they’re accurate.

In the first paragraph, I mentioned that these two are being held in connection with the death of little Peyton. That was not quite accurate. Notorious has been charged with her MURDER, and Loose-screw and Robert Franklin (the cousin) are both being charged with “injury to a child by omission”. Folks, that’s just a fancy term for not doing a blessed thing to save a child who is being killed right in front of your eyes. They stood by and did nothing as Notorious beat little Peyton to death with a belt. Well, to be completely fair, the bio-slag wasn’t actually there at the time of the fatal beating, but according to reports, she had witnessed multiple previous beatings and did nothing to stop them. How can a mother stand by and watch anyone beat her child that way? The cousin actually witnessed the beginning of the final beating, and turned and walked away. My head spins. All three of the pseudo-adults in this debacle are being held at the El Paso County Jail. Notorious has a $250,000.00 bond, but no bond amount was listed for either the sorry slag or the callous cousin.

Why, you may ask, did this precious child deserve such a beating? She didn’t. NO child ever deserves to be treated this way. But Notorious thought she did, and why? Because she “soiled her diaper”. What?!?!?! She was TWO freakin’ years old! What in the blue depths of Hades did he expect? If she was wearing a diaper, that tells me that he KNEW she was not potty-trained, and therefore he knew that she might occasionally have an accident. However, instead of cleaning up his daughter, getting her a clean diaper and taking her to the bathroom to see if she needed to finish up (as any reasonable parent would do), he decided that a beating was in order. People like this make my flesh crawl. I hope he has explosive diarrhea every day for the rest of his life, and his inmates beat him every time he stinks up the cell.

As indicated in my previous remarks, this was not little Peyton’s first beating. Authorities have said that older wounds on the girl’s body were indicative of prior assaults by the sperm-donor. Good Lord. Older wounds? At two years old? When did the abuse start, I wonder? If this case is anything like previous cases, it likely started before she was a year old. Sick arse-tards. You don’t beat a baby, people. Ever. They are fragile, and often don’t realize that they have done anything wrong. Especially when that ‘wrong thing’ is a biological necessity. All people have to use the bathroom, and babies sometimes can’t control their bowels at that age.

Good grief, people, if I had beaten my children like this every time they had an accident while potty training, I wouldn’t have any children left alive! ALL children occasionally have accidents. And some kids have “deliberate accidents” (they are having so much fun playing they don’t want to interrupt playtime to go to the bathroom). One of mine did that one day in the back yard. She had been completely potty trained for several weeks, and came in with saggy pants and an ungodly stench about her. I knew what she had done, but I asked her anyway, and she politely explained to me that she “was having too much fun and didn’t want to come inside.” So I beat her bloody, and threw her on the floor. No, NOT really. What I did was send her to the bathroom with instructions to remove her soiled clothing and get into the bathtub. I told her if she was old enough to know better, and stubborn enough to poop in her pants anyway, she could clean up her own mess. I waited about five minutes and went to see if she was doing as she was told. She had taken off her clothes and dropped them on the floor, and was standing in the bathtub with crap from her waist to her ankles. And in the bottom of the tub. Guess what? I STILL didn’t beat her. I helped her wipe away the major portion of the mess with TP and flushed it. Then I turned on the shower and finished bathing her. Then I made her watch as I rinsed out her panties and shorts in the toilet, telling her next time, I would make her do it. She never did it again. No beating required. Now, this little ‘lesson’ did necessitate a thorough cleaning of the bathtub and bathroom floor afterwards (by me), but hey, what are Scrubbing Bubbles for, anyway? Oh, and I didn’t have a dead kid when I was done ‘teaching’ her, either. Everybody wins!

Why do some parents think that beating a baby with a belt will teach it ANYTHING? The only thing abuse like that teaches children….is fear. The floor is now open for comments…..

    This fucko isn’t a soldier; he’s just another piece of shit posing as a soldier and man. He’s a fucking disgrace to every man and woman who puts on uniform and serves their country proud, sometimes giving their
    lives. May they all burn in hell. Lil Peyton, rest easy…

    I don’t get how your brain goes to the “beat your kid” place. Specially when it’s because of something like this. My 21 month old daughter has pooped in the shower, in her tub, on the bed, she has barfed in the car, on the bed, in my hands. I’ve found her playing with dog poop, brushing the dog’s teeth with her toothbrush. I tell her it’s wrong, and most of the time, she won’t do it again(I realized she was trying to clean the dog poop). Other times, it takes longer for her to understand, but she is so innocent, so curious.

    Babies are learning. It’s our job to teach them. We also pooped and probably did awful things to our parents, and here we are. ALIVE. If you feel angry at your baby, just take some time. Put the baby in his crib and just go to another room. We cannot be perfect, but we can stop and think before we act. We are the adults, the caretakers.

    I really can’t wrap my mind around stories like these. Why would you beat any child? I understand discipline, but I don’t understand beating a child and apparently a lot of people don’t know the difference. You have to be the most evil person inside to beat someone that you outweigh by 150, 200 lbs. What is wrong with you?
    And why oh why would you beat a child, better yet a baby over a body fluid incident? My 4 yr old wet himself the other day because he was so into watching the Lego movie that he couldn’t be bothered to go to the bathroom. I didn’t beat him, I made him put his clothes in the wash, then I cleaned him up and took the movie away until he got that it’s not okay to do that just because you don’t want to pause a movie. He has had an accident on the carpet before when he was younger and being potty trained. Poop everywhere. Not once did I think to hit, beat or harm him in anyway. He was learning. I’m not known to be a softie at all, I am the police in the house, or as my son says I’m a bully sometimes and I hurt his feelings because I make him eat real food and go to bed on schedule and pick up his toys. I would never beat him or any child and I wouldn’t let anyone else, including his father do it either. Some people are just evil, there is really no other description for it.

    Poor little baby!
    Worthless, rotten, horrible POS’s!

    Apparently, this guy doesn’t go to the bathroom. He was so shocked by her poop, he just had to whup her with a belt. Asshat cousin didn’t step in, and mom had seen it before. None of them realized everyone poops? I hope they all get beat, shit on, and anally raped with razor blades EVERY DAY in jail!!! Potty training sucks, but big Bubba will suck with razor blades in his mouth!!
