What is going on lately with the growing trend of young parents or family of very young children killing them?!

Another human waste of space, 24-year-old Zachary Tricoche of Pennsauken, N.J., repeatedly punched a two-year-old whose injuries from the punches resulted in his death on Saturday.

The name of the mother was not reported, but the boy’s name was Jamil Baskerville Jr.

Apparently this pile of garbage, Tricoche, was upset and had been fighting with the mother of the child, who was also his girlfriend, over her not buying some of the groceries he liked.

Maybe Tricoche could get off his lazy behind and either go with her to do the grocery shopping or go by himself.

According to CBS Philadelphia:

The woman told detectives that during the argument he punched her two-year-old son in the chest so hard he flew into a wall.

The boy got up and Tricoche allegedly punched him again in the chest so hard he hit the wall again and was knocked unconscious.

The mother called 9-1-1 around 11:30 p.m. on Saturday saying that her son had vomited and then become unresponsive.

Baskerville’s grandfather, Gerome DeShields, was disgusted by the situation and had some very justified words to say.

“You’re less of a man to sit there and put your hands on any type of child, no matter what age it is,” DeShields said. “He was two years old. There should be no reason you should want to hit him.”

CBS Philadelphia also reported:

A medical examination revealed Jamil’s liver was crushed and the boy bled to death internally.

The official cause of death is blunt force trauma and the manner of death is homicide.

Another defenseless child needlessly murdered because of people that shouldn’t be around kids in the first place. When will this stop?

Tricoche’s bail was set at $1,000,000. While people deserve their constitutional right to a fair and speedy trial, scum like Tricoche don’t deserve to have bail set for them.
