    I know the Kenney family personally. My children grew up with Kerry (Doug). He has been in my home numerous times. I stand behind this family. Most of you all see are ready to put a person in jail without the facts or evidence. Remember there is another family in another city that should be investigated also. Which I have not heard mentioned on any of the local news stations. Everything always wants to be pointed to 'the boyfriend or the black man'. This is America which I believed was suppose to be land of equality and justice for all, not just one race!

    Regarding my earlier comment, I wasn't aware that the injuries were found on Wednesday instead of the day the child came home. But I do remember one neighbor saying that the child was acting differently when he came back from visiting the family members.

    If the people who are around that baby all the time think the abuse happened when the baby was with family members out of state, why are the cops after the boyfriend?
