Father Microwaves 2 month old child

GALVESTON An Arkansas man accused of burning his 2-month-old daughter's face by putting her in a microwave oven was indicted Wednesday on a charge of felony injury to a child.

A Galveston County Grand Jury indicted Joshua Royce Mauldin, 19, on one count carrying a maximum sentence of five to 99 years in prison and a fine up to $10,000. Mauldin, who police said claimed he was sent by God to be a preacher in Galveston, remained in jail late Wednesday on $250,000 bail.

Thats what the dude said after all. Batshit crazy Fundies microwaving their kids because theyre pro life and compassionate conservatives. I would love to be alone in a room with a gun with someone who microwaves their child.

20. Thank you, my point exactly.
He said he was 'called by G*d'. I didn't put words in his mouth.

2. "called by god..."
"Mauldin told police that he was working at a Sonic Drive-In in Warren, a town of about 6,000 in southern Arkansas, when "he was called to be a minister by God" and decided to begin his ministry in Galveston."

Figures.

9. If that doesn't scream "mental illness," nothing does.
As an aside, a maximum sentence of 5 to 99 years? That's a lot of latitude. He'll be out in time for the 2012 election or maybe in the next century.

16. Shhhhhhhhhh!
That's only for *mothers* who do unspeakable evils to their children. They need mental help. The fathers? They should burn in hell, after having their testicles forcibly removed. Isn't that right, DU?

18. Fathers don't have the post-pregnancy hormonal changes that cause post-partum depression/psychosis
But of course they could have other mental illnesses. Still, they are different enough circumstances that it's silly to compare them in that way.

23. Of course he deserves mental help
Deserving mental help and treatment in a mental facility - doesn't equate to letting a murderer walk the streets. We don't have to dehumanize people to keep society safe from those who would do harm.

12. Everyone who claims to hear God should be locked up
And given a psychiatric assessment.

We can't let these people wander around free.

21. This still might be a murder
The internal damage from microwave exposure can take a while to show up.

Before this was understood, some of the first guys to man radar stations in WWII complained of feeling sick a few days later. They died shortly thereafter, and it turned out they had basically been stewed on the inside.

I'm not saying this to be grisly--just informing all of the possible effects of our military/police's next generation of "crowd control" device...
