MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. – Jose Sotomayor said he could not believe his eyes when he walked out of his home in Miami Gardens Thursday afternoon to find a man savagely beating a 3-year-old girl. He said she was trapped inside of his 50-gallon recycling bin.
Sotomayor said he was in his bedroom at his home in the 2700 block of Northwest 201st Terrace when he heard noises. He said he walked out to investigate and found 18-year-old Tristin Bernard was hitting the girl with a brick while she was inside the bin.
Paramedics rushed the girl to Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital, where she was listed in critical condition. Police said she suffered severe head trauma.
A neighbor recognized the girl and said she lived nearby. Police officers later arrested Bernard who neighbors said was the girl’s relative.
That is superhuman restraint, ladies and gentlemen. The temptation to get this asshole to some far away canal in the middle of the Glades and put a bullet in the back of his worthless head would be too much for the average person or at least a deep class on human osteology and its strength against hard cylindrical objects.
Cops have to live with this stuff every day and behave like stuff like that does not affect them. It ain’t so.
