NO SHOCK it is a Black guy (Sorry - just saying what all else are thinking) and even less of a shock how young the mother is. Words can't possibly express my true feelings on this pathetic excuse for a human being other than to say what he did is probably the most disgusting thing i have ever seen. As for his punishment - very simple: Send him to a MAX Secutiry prison for 24 hours. Make sure EVERYONE there knows what he did and why he is there. Have the Security Guards leave the area for a few hours during meal breaks as well as any time spent outside in the fresh air. If the guy survives the 24 hours - he is free to live his life however he wants. But we all know he would last about 5 minutes - if that - and when those 5 minutes were over dental records wouldn't be able to ID him. This guy is a sick bastard - and my guess is this is NOT his first kid and if he was allowed to stay outside prison he would challenge Sean Kemp and Travis Henry.
There is a video that goes with it - and reaction is pretty universal and the TV Anchor with a rare - but accurate - comment
Father Charged with Rape of 8 Day-Old Baby
FORREST CITY, AR – Police say a Forrest City, Arkansas man has been charged with raping his 8 day-old baby.
According to a police report, officers were called to the Forrest City Medical Center, September 1, 2008, about a baby that had been sexually assaulted. Forrest City police say the baby also had a skull fracture and had to be transferred to the Arkansas Children’s Hospital in Little Rock because of the severity of the injuries.
Investigators say the father attacked the infant during a visit at her 15 year-old mother's house. Police say other people were at the home at the time of the assault.
Police say Davis had no criminal record since turning 18, but could not say whether Davis had a juvy wrap-sheet. The information could not be released under Arkansas state law, said investigators.
Police say the infant’s father, 18 year-old Reginald Davis, has been charged with Rape and Second-Degree Battery. The case is still under investigation and it is unknown if any other arrests will be made, said Forrest City Police.
Davis is being held on a $100,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in circuit court on September 17.
