WTF? So you stomp on your kid and not arrested until a freakin' year later?? If he was still a minor this was child abuse not just some random assault why the hell wasn't he arrested and charged at the time of the incident? He called the cops did they or did they not show up? Was it reported that he stomped on the kid at that time? This makes no sense at all.

I don't get it ... back when I was growing up, you'd get a smack and a whippin if you came home with a B instead of an A. In fact, everyone I knew ... same thing, you got smacked and a good ole-fashioned whippin. Nowadays, you can't even raise your voice to your kids because you'll be charged and sent to the big-business prison system.

My son went to school with Comacho's son. He got bullied a lot by him. Like father like son.

I think people need to know all the facts before judging anyone,you do not know all the facts!!! Kids these days think they deserve everything for nothing so you do not know how these kids are so just don't judge.Some day it could be you. Just think abbout it.

I think this is just a racial thing, trying to make Mexican Americans look bad. This man is a fine upstanding citizen and had a great career as a boxer.

I no his type. That look on his face is,"Yeah, and what are you going to do about it?" He's not the least bit bothered. Probably doesn't remember doing it, I'll bet.

So he's slid down back where he came from BC, before celebrity, to go from Macho Comacho to Little b e a n e r beater Comacho... child beaters and pedophiles need both speedy trials AND executions.
