    Default Officer Beat 4-Year-Old, Put Him in Critical Condition

    http://www.cbsnews.com/news/cops-ore...friends-son-4/

    SHERIDAN, Ore. - Police in Oregon are alleging a Yamhill County reserve police officer beat his girlfriend’s four-year-old son until the boy suffered a severe brain injury, seven fractured ribs, and tears in his bowel and intestine, according to a probable cause affidavit obtained by CBS News' Crimesider.

    The reserve officer, Michael Shane Abo, 34, is facing assault and criminal mistreatment charges following a grand jury indictment, reports CBS affiliate KOIN. Abo denied striking the child and told officers the boy had fallen from a stairwell, according to the affidavit.

    Yamhill police responded to a report on New Year’s Eve of an injured four-year-old at a home where Abo lived with the boy and his mother in Sheridan, about 50 miles southwest of Portland, according to the affidavit. The boy’s injuries were so severe that officials medivaced him to a nearby hospital.

    The boy was transported in critical condition, reports the station.

    In addition to the severe brain injury, internal tearing and rib fractures, the boy also sustained bruising on several parts of his body, according to the affidavit. Yamhill County District Attorney Brad Berry told Crimesider he didn’t know the boy’s current condition.

    The accused, Abo, was hired as a Yamhill County deputy in 2008, but was fired in November 2012 for an "internal personnel issue,” reports KOIN. Abo reportedly became a reserve officer with Yamhill police department in January 2013, but hasn't worked since August.

    When questioned by police at the hospital, Abo denied hurting the child. He said he had seen the boy jumping up and down on a stairwell before he went into his bedroom, heard a thump, and found the child on his back at the bottom of the stairwell.

    Hospital officials, however, told police the boy’s injuries were likely caused by blunt force trauma and weren’t consistent with falling from a stairwell.

    Police believe there were at least two incidents on two different dates in which Abo caused “serious physical injury” to the child, the affidavit states.

    The child’s mother told police she moved into Abo’s home with her son in December, and afterwards, said the child started showing changes in his behavior including biting his fingers. Abo told police he was the child’s sole childcare provider Sunday through Thursday while his mother worked in Vancouver, according to the affidavit.

    The child’s mother told police she didn’t see the bruising on her son because Abo didn’t allow her to bathe or clothe the boy, the affidavit alleges.

    The mother said she did notice a bruise on her son’s right arm, the affidavit alleges, which Abo said the boy sustained as he was teaching him “how to wrestle.”

    “It's difficult in that to see a young child who is essentially defenseless hurt in the manner that this young boy was hurt," McMinnville Police Capt. Matt Scales told KOIN. "We want to have the person that's responsible for this held accountable."

    Abo is being held in neighboring Washington County because of his ties to Yamhill County law enforcement, reports the station.

    Abo was reportedly arraigned Monday, but didn’t enter a plea. He was visibly distraught during a video appearance in a Washington County court Monday afternoon, according to KOIN.

    The station says he’s being held on $500,000 bond.

    Good point, a young four year old is just as dangerous as a family dog, which also have a history of assaulting police officers and forcing them to take action.

    Accept certain inalienable truths: Prices will rise. Politicians will philander. You, too, will get old.
    And when you do, you'll fantasize that when you were young, prices were reasonable, politicians were noble and children respected their elders.

    The four year old wouldn't stop resisting, not to mention he was probably on PCP or something. He brought it on himself.

    There's a tough guy.

    Fact: The most dangerous person to any child is mom's boyfriend.

    The child’s mother told police she moved into Abo’s home with her son in December, and afterwards, said the child started showing changes in his behavior including biting his fingers.

    No red flags there, eh, mom? Dumb broad.

    "The State, both in its genesis and by its primary intention, is purely anti-social. It is not based on the idea of natural rights, but on the idea that the individual has no rights except those that the State may provisionally grant him. It has always made justice costly and difficult of access, and has invariably held itself above justice and common morality whenever it could advantage itself by so doing."

    Abusive fuck drawn to the force so he can act in a way more comfortable to him, ends up abusing his gf's kid. Keep perspective folks, he didn't hurt the kid because he was a cop.

    I have no doubt that many cops were the biggest pricks in high school. The best place for a violent person to be employed is the PD where the worst that happens is they get a paid vacation for killing someone.

    No,, he is a Cop because he is an Abusive fuck.

    And that is why 90% become cops in the first place.
    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.

    I think we can all agree that procedure and policy was followed.

    And have you ever had to deal with a violent 4 year old?...not a situation a 200 lb. cop needs to deal with. They don't have time for this.

    Remember.........I don't advocate for government killing anyone.

    I can assure you if the child were one of my family members this guys death would be slow and painful.

    not even 102 cries for help would have helped the 4 year old.

    It is contrary to Liberty by definition and by conception.

    The very concept of Control Enforcers, is repugnant.

    not something to wish on anybody. Sadly, some don't play well with others, like murdering people.

    We need to ban police: for the children.

    Justice is being served here, is it not? This guy is facing a trial for what he did.

    "The reserve officer, Michael Shane Abo, 34, is facing assault and criminal mistreatment charges following a grand jury indictment, reports CBS affiliate KOIN. Abo denied striking the child and told officers the boy had fallen from a stairwell, according to the affidavit."

    And who says that this guy only did this because he's a police officer? Unfortunately, abuse of children happens all the time in America, and it's a very sad, sick, and disgusting thing. But the perpetrators of such abuse aren't just police officers and those who work for the government.

    My post was kind of playing off Obama's stupid "gotta ban guns for the children" bit.

    I don't see why the fact that its being punished means it shouldn't be discussed: though.

    I think in this case, as was pointed out, you have a guy who was already a sociopath and was thus attracted to a "profession" (I use that term loosely here) in order to gain power. Sociopaths are drawn to the policing profession because it allows them to get away with it. Luckily, in this case, he isn't getting away with it.
