Eric Durand Held in Child Slaying

Sometime after Brendon Camara cleaned up his urine, Durand alleges, the boy fell down a flight of stairs.[...]The next time that Paquette saw Brendon Camara, she told police, he was "laying on his bed with his eyes rolled back and his mouth moving as if he was trying to breathe."[...]Durand admitted to picking on Brendon because he was a "whiner" and he wanted to "toughen him up."
That's from the Fall River Herald. In another news story, the autopsy found that little Brendon's stomach had completely separated from his duodenum, apparently from some blow to the stomach which was not consistent with falling down the stairs.

He was four. Four!

Children wet their pants. It's a fact of life. They don't do it to make you angry.

Did anyone else see the disturbing video from NECN yesterday? One of the boy's uncles scaled the fence where the accused was being led from the police van (amazing, because it's high thin metal slats), cartwheeled over the top, and dropped down just as the doors to the building were closed with the suspect safely inside.

Now _that_ is the power anger.

"Durand admitted to picking on Brendon because he was a 'whiner' and he wanted to 'toughen him up.'"

I watched a news clip of Durand being all sniffly and shit in the penalty box in court. Maybe he needs some toughening up.

I'll gladly take on the job of toughening that bastard up. I'd give him injuries he's never even thought of before. Jesus. Who beats a four year old kid?

Eric is not the monster that people think he is. Eric will be found not guilty. Laura Bowen the mother of the children is who needs to be look at. Eric was very good to the Camara boys.Where has been the boys real dad? Now all of suuden hes in the picture. The newspaper stated that Eric was not to be around the kids. False info Eric was not part of any cases with DSS. So I hope when all is said and done Eric will be able to go on with his life, but that will be very hard with what the paper writes about him. Eric is an excellent father and person.

There seems little point in discussing this with you, Jen. You seem biased.

Laura Bowden would appear to be no prize herself, but Brendon wasn't happily running around with a separated stomach when she was present. That happened in Eric's presence and nobody else's.

As for his being found innocent, well, time will tell.

Hey JP, what's with all this comment spam that's flooding your site today?

Posted by: Chuck S. at July 16, 2004 10:43 PM

I don't know. I must be getting more popular. My blacklist must need updating. Plus, I usually delete the spam pretty quickly, but I've been AFK a lot the last couple of days.

Mike pointed me to a new anti-spam trick. I think it's time for me to try it out.

He's stomach was not separeted. Read all the clipping in this case. I've been there for all the court hearing. We have different autopsy reports. The truth will all come out.Before people make judgement know all the facts and the whole case. Eric is innocent and can't wait until it all comes out.
