Ivory James Blackshire, 28, is charged with homicide by child abuse.


Aiken County sheriff’s investigators arrested Ivory James Blackshire, 28, last week on a charge of inflicting great bodily injury to a child, a statement from the sheriff’s office said.

On Thursday, deputies were dispatched to Dallas Circle to assist emergency medical services after a call from Blackshire. The boy was taken to Aiken Regional Medical Centers and later to Georgia Regents Medical Center. Blackshire was arrested after investigators were called to inspect the child’s injuries.

Investigators amended the charge to homicide by child abuse after the boy’s death. Blackshire is being held at the Aiken County Detention Center.

While this is definitely a sad story and one that is happening far too often lately. Lilly I hope you don't seriously think it's the right idea for the government to start reaching into our womb and killing babies? I think that's stretching the hand of the government way too far in our business. When they start telling people how many children to have they've gone too far.

"Another Death By Mommy's Boyfriend."
I would bet 10 to 1 that he lives there. They can't get married because it will cut out a lot of the welfare.
We can thank the Great Society, liberals/progressives, democrats and the black leaders

How about retroactive abortion for the perps?

That way, more babies might be saved.

No, child abuse has always been there. Sadly, children have been murdered for a long, long time.

It has to do with EVIL.

mental illness

Until mental illness is addressed in this country we will still keep seeing these issues. By not addressing the real issue in cases similar to this the only winners are the bail and probation businesses. Jail does not cure mental illness it just delays the inevitable.

Give Him A Fair Trial

If found guilty, kill him...slowly... Abuse, be it child, elder, or animal, should be a Capital Offense. You are probably right, Chascushman. Sad, but you are probably right.
