Both of them should be beaten by the people in jail like the way they did to the kid.

I wonder how could the boy's mom didn't do anything when the guy hit the boy. Gosh.

Both of them should be punished!

Thank landlord for making such important call. God bless you, landlord.

The piece of crap deserves a beating for what he's done. And she deserves to lose her child as long as there is a decent father figure for the boy somewhere.

Good for them!    

Hey Give me a Break.

Have you ever thought of eating less and doing more?

If you aren't sweating profusely, you aren't doing anything.

Walking is what you old cronies do so you can SAY you are fit.

But obviously, a 5'6 rhino at 159lbs is FAR from fit.

Neither one of them even look like they give a s#it in those photos. If that's the kind of trainer "The Biggest Loser" wants. then I hope they lose viewers!

ITS NOT HIS CHILD!!!! She should be locked up for helping him beat HER child. Her crusty crotch will be smoking in prison. She must have got flustered because he has no penis from all the roids he take. The probably got jealous of the six year old!

Look at #52's comment.

She would TORTURE them. If she were the arresting officer, she would throw out 'innocent until proven guilty' and put them both in the hospital with further violence.

That's how you parents, who have no concept of physical discipline, really are.

I discipline my kids with spankings and when they grow up and read an article like this, they won't wish death on another person. They will instead hope the kid is alright and that the beatings weren't that severe.

If you are sweating, then you are losing weight. Unless you somehow think water is weightless...

You don't sweat, because Rhino's in a walking trot barely expend energy. David Attenborough taught me that.
