The following story is not for the faint of heart:
Doctors in Shenzhen, China have reattached a 6-year-old boy’s penis after his father bit it off, the Shanghai Daily reports.
According to the paper, witnesses said the 32-year-old father was walking with his naked son and 4-year-old daughter on the street Thursday when he commanded the boy to bite his penis.
When the boy refused, the man attacked him.
Horrified passersby subdued the man, forced him to spit out his son’s penis, and called the police, China Buzz reports.
The boy’s reattachment surgery was successful, but it is too early to tell whether he will have normal use of the appendage. The Shanghai Daily reports that relatives will care for the boy’s sister.
Cops say the father is likely to have a mental illness — he was recently seen pretending to strangle his son on their balcony, according to witnesses. Police also found that the man, who was only identified by the surname Yu, was severely in debt after a failed business venture and was often seen gambling.
Mental illness or not, this dude needs to get his. Any man who could do such a brutal thing to another person – much less his own son – deserves every horrible thing coming to him. I’d say the death penalty, but maybe throwing him in a hole for the rest of his natural life would do. Crazy or not, he doesn’t need to see the light of another day for what he did to this poor child. Unfortunately, though, you can just as easily look stateside for horrendous acts committed by adults on poor, defenseless children.
That’s it. I’m getting my act together. The end is so, so, near.
