Jamille Hardy Accused of Beating Foster Kid

Jamille Hardy

A four-year-old boy is in critical condition with brain injuries and serious bruises after his foster father allegedly beat him until his brain bled.  41-year-old Jamille Hardy of Taylors was charged with abuse after Greenville County Sheriff’s Office investigators determined he had caused the preschooler’s injuries.

According to an arrest warrant, Hardy’s foster son was taken to Greenville Memorial Hospital on Sunday. A doctor there determined that the boy had suffered a hard blow to the head, which caused his brain to bleed. The warrant said that Hardy threw his foster son to the floor.

The warrant also stated that the boy had suffered fresh contusions from his upper chest to his knees.

Investigators said that Hardy told them that he was having a hard time getting the boy to eat so he spanked him a few times. They also said that Hardy admitted to pushing the boy to the ground when he tried to run away from him. He said that was when the boy became unconscious.

A doctor told investigators he was unsure how the head injury might impact the child’s development.  The boy remains hospitalized.

Hardy is being held without bond at the Greenville County Detention Center.  That’s a good start, but it won’t undo all the ways in which society has failed this child. Abandoned by his own parents, he was placed in the care of a soulless animal who turned him into a living, breathing punching bag.

This child may end up paying for the rest of his life. Can we say the same of the person who hurt him, and the people responsible for placing him in that home?

    Beating a four year old until his brain bleeds is not mistake – it’s evil. Get you head out of your ass. Maybe you should save your sympathy for the victim not this scumbag.

    So let’s let all the criminals out of prison! How unfair that they were judged. Doesn’t the Bible also tell people with eyes to see it, ears to hear it and lips to speak it? Silence in the face of evil is evil. Jesus would smited the man who abused a child as surely as he supposedly chased the money changers from the temple.

    This child will be crippled by his brain injury the rest of his life and your sympathy is for the abuser? You’re as evil as e is – and equally hell bound.

    Why don’t you explain how that child got such severe injuries? Because your scumbag friends are more important to you than a defenseless child’s life?
