The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil,
but because of those who look on and do nothing.

Who wants to bet it was mom's boyfriend.

While the police aren't providing information on the relationship between Ryan Kaspick, 24, and the mother of two children he is accused of abusing- I'm going to go out on a limb and suggest that he's the boyfriend. Not because I have any evidence to prove it, but because statistical- it's a safe bet.

The mother of the children noticed bruising, sought medical attention and learned from doctors the children had been abused, the Pinellas Sheriff's office said.

Detectives said Ryan Kaspick, 24, of 12050 Park Blvd. admitted under questioning that he struck the 2-year-old girl on Thursday. After taking her from the bath tub, he held her face down on a couch and struck both side of her face, causing bruising on both ears.

Later that same day, detectives said, Kaspick struck the 10-month old boy on the right ear while changing his diaper.

He was being held at the county jail in lieu of $60,000 bond on charges of child abuse and aggravated child abuse.

I don't care how many cases like these I read, I'll never understand the mentality of someone who could beat a child. It's hard to imagine that there are really people that empty hearted out there.
