Baton Rouge police: Five-year-old boy says he is afraid to go home after man whips him with belt

A 5-year-old boy told police last week he was afraid to go home after a man whipped him with a belt for misbehaving in school, according to a Baton Rouge police report.

The man, 22-year-old Kalvin Edmond, lives in the same home as the boy and his mother, according to the report. Police say the mother told detectives she gave Edmond permission to whip the boy after he got in trouble.

She also told police she watched him whip the boy with a belt six times on the buttocks and on the back of the legs. Investigators say the child had significant bruising down the back of his thighs to his ankles.

Police and state Department of Child and Family Services interviewed the boy at Our Lady of the Lake Regional Medical Center.

Edmond, 225 College Drive, Baton Rouge, was booked Wednesday into Parish Prison on a count of cruelty to juveniles.

But it's okay for the kid to grow up to be a thug, right? Make up your damn minds. Do you want disciplined children who grow into decent adults, or you want kids let loose growing into thugs? Can't have both, remember.

it's possible but it's child abuse, it's also possible the boy just needed a woopin'. we would definitely have to know more before making a judgment on this.

Why would you let and then watch someone whip your child. That child will remember that when he is grown.

its a parent's job no make that there response ability to teach there child that making bad decisions comes repercussions every child is different i thank God for having parents and relitives that cared enough to whip my a*s when I needed it for all those people that dont believe in whipping there kids i guess they would rather lose there kids to gangs and prison or dead because life won't be that kind to them
