4 year old murdered by mother

Timothy Kincaid

Some things are just too disgusting to even comment about: (The Oregonian)

Jessica Dutro believed her 4-year-old son, Zachary Dutro-Boggess was gay, prosecutors told the court Wednesday, and that was her motive for subjecting him to deadly beatings.

Dutro, charged with murder, murder by abuse and second-degree assault, is on trial in Washington County Circuit Court.

Emergency crews brought Zachary to a Portland hospital Aug. 14, 2012, where doctors determined he was dying from trauma to his abdomen that caused tears in his bowel. He was taken off life support two days later.

I live nearby and hadn’t even heard of this. Another outrage perpetrated by heteros on innocent children. Of course the family values crowd insists that gay and lesbian parents aren’t healthy for children, LOL. I’m starting today to collect these articles.
That poor, poor child. My heart breaks for him.

Just remember, every child deserves to have a father and a mother, and that us the optimal mode and circumstance for raising a child.

If he survives.

From the article:

In the message, Dutro told her boyfriend, Brian Canady, that Zachary was “facing the wall” because he had made her mad.

Her son was going to be gay, she wrote, using a slur. “He walks and talks like it. Ugh.”

Canady would have to “work on” Zachary, she wrote.

And in further support of her “family” values:

Prosecutors say on Aug. 16, 2012, the day Zachary’s life support was terminated, Dutro searched terms such as anger management and parenting classes. She also searched listings for free stuff and SEX WITH STRANGERS, they said. (emphasis is mine)

While I want to agree with you, Timothy, that some things are too disgusting to comment on, I can’t agree. The comment I have to make is that both of these people belong in prison for a good long time and both should be sterilized so they can’t breed any more children to torture.

I’m assuming it would still be legal for Dutro and Canaday to get married. Am I wrong about that?

Richard: You’re correct. In Turner v. Safley the SCOTUS ruled that corrections officials have no say in whether or not a prisoner can marry. As long as neither Dutro or Canaday are already married to someone else, they can tie the knot.

Incredible. This couple can get married, but in many states, an exemplary same-sex couple that has been together for decades cannot.

Knowing that the paramount concern of True Christians with respect to marriage is the well-being of children, I’m confident that, within the next few days, they will recognize that their obsession with gays has resulted in a horrifically glaring oversight, and thus they will immediately divert their efforts into a major campaign to prevent marriage by couples if there is documented evidence that either one of them has murdered or otherwise severely harmed a child.
