I take offense that the reporter who wrote this story calls this scumbag a "man." It's bad enough this coward only received 10 years for the atrocities he committed against this poor child, but to be equated with a human being in any form is just an insult to all of humanity.
A 31-YEAR-OLD West Australian man has been jailed for 10 years for bashing a three-year-old boy to death after inflicting injuries described by a judge as "almost beyond belief".
Timothy Leonard Gordon Farmer, of Albany, was today sentenced in the WA Supreme Court after pleading guilty to the manslaughter of Mason James Coughlan on October 30, 2006.
Justice Eric Heenan said Farmer had beaten Mason over a two-week period using tree branches, garden hoses and thongs inflicting injuries so severe they had filled seven pages of a pathologist's report.
It was one of the worst cases of child cruelty to come before the courts, Justice Heenan said.
Hopefully, he'll face some jailhouse justice.
But it doesn't end there. The depraved and unforgivable actions of this waste of space might have been foreseen if one takes in to account the disgusting witch (with a capital "B") of a mother this trash had:
Farmer's mother said the sentence was too severe.
She should rot beside him.
