9 yr. old boy beaten so badly w/ a bamboo stick it broke. Lacerated his liver. The paper is not reporting the man is the stepdad nor the mother's name. The stepdad's name is Benjamin Donahue. The mother is a realtor here. The thing that gets me is the mother told police she didn't notice the boy was hurt. The teacher called in a report due to the bruising. The mother didn't notice the bruising? Whut! Both made the kid exercise for 5 hrs. at a time for punishment. I don't know why the mother wasn't arrested for failure to protect? The boy attends a private school w/ my granddaughter. Poor kid. Disgusts me to no end!
