Man arraigned in child's taped beating - Yahoo! News
This guy need to be beaten till he drools and has to wear a bump cap. I feel sorry for the kid, I can only hope that the kid's father cares and is furious. I know I'd be in jail for messing some one up if they ever harmed my son.DETROIT - A man was arraigned Sunday on child abuse charges in the beating of his girlfriend's 2-year-old son that was captured on a convenience store surveillance tape.
The video from Dec. 21 shows a man hitting, kicking and stepping on a child over a four-minute span. The man also is seen hitting the child with a cooler door and pauses when other customers walk nearby.
Joseph Gray, 27, of Detroit, was arrested Friday night after viewers saw his photo on televised news reports that also broadcast portions of the tape. Detroit police had released the tape that day to help capture him.
Police said investigators were assured by the boy's relatives that the child was OK.
Gray was arraigned by video on charges of second- and third-degree child abuse, and a preliminary examination was set for Jan. 17. Gray didn't have a lawyer present at the hearing.
Messages seeking comment left at two telephone listings in Detroit for the name Joseph Gray were not immediately returned.
