Who is Baby P?
August 3 2007 marks the date that ended months of abuse for Baby P. The toddler, known as Baby P was born on March 3 2006. For the first 4 months of his life, Baby P lived with his biological parents in Haringey. In July of 2006 Baby P's father moved out.
The first time that Baby P displayed any signs of abuse were in October. Coincidentally, this is right before Baby P's stepfather moved into the home. In the months between Baby P's stepfather moving in and Baby P's tragic and unfortunate death the poor toddler is reported to vhave been tortured. This torture was inflicted by the stepfather and by a lodger that lived there also. The two men are reported to be brothers. His mother sat idly by and did nothing to protect her precious baby. In fact she covered up for these evil men.
At the time of his death Baby P had multiple cuts and bruises on his head, his ears were hanging on. It is reported that he had been attacked by his step father's rottweiler. He had bruises on his arms and legs. He had a broken leg and worst of all a broken back. The toddlers back had been broken in the weeks preceding his death. Baby P was missing finger nails. It is reported that the tips of his fingers were cut off with a Stanley knife and the the nail were ripped out with a pliers. A tooth was found in Baby P's stomach during the autopsy. He was hit so hard in the face that a tooth fell out and he swallowed it.
As well as being physically abused, Baby P was also neglected. He was left in his crib for days at a time, he was underfed, his diaper was rarely changed and he was suffering a severe case of head lice.
Death must have been a welcome escape for this poor toddler.
The death of Baby P has stirred a huge controversy in England. It is believed that if it wasn't for poor communication between different agencies such as police, social workers and doctors that the death of this toddler may have been avoided. Baby P had on Child Protective Services Register since December and was frequently visited by over worked social workers. They seemed to think it better to leave in home in the abusive environment. Sickeningly, the toddler was examined on August 1st, 2 days before he died in a hospital. At this time he was suffering a broken back and broken ribs. The doctor that examined him has stated that she did not give him a full examination because he was too cranky and miserable. Had she, he might be alive today.
Let's all pray for this baby.
