Bail was set at $100,000 Monday for a 20-year old man accused of pulling on 4-month-old son’s leg to stop his crying.

Authorities say Manual Lopez pulled the boy’s leg until it popped, to get him to stop crying. Lopez is charged with two counts of felony aggravated battery to a child.

The infant was taken to Lurie Children’s Hospital Saturday.  Police were called when doctors discovered the injuries.

Police say Lopez admitted to hurting the baby.

The Illinois Department of Children and Family Services is investigating. They have not had prior contact with the family.

    If you can't be a loving and responsible parent – give the child to a family that wants a child in their lives – a family that will treat that little boy like a prince and give him the future he deserves.

    Everyone has been talking about repealing ammendments (1st, 2nd, and even 4th. ammendment rights) over the past few years. But, the problem with that is the ones that use those rights responsibly are the ones that get punished.
    It is people like this class validictorian mentioned up above that should have his rights taken away!
    Better yet, lets drop him into North Korea, China, Cuba, or Iran!
    I am sure they would appreciate the likes of him!
    (Or send us a letter asking us to kindly stop dumping our grabage onto their front lawns!)

    I belive once again we have straid away from the problem and that is that another person is gulity of hurting a child and unless we start dealing with the problem fast then we will never solve anything and to solve the problem we must kill the problems on sight.stop sending them to jail and shoot on sight.
