WARNING: Do NOT watch the video at the end of this article if you are easily offended.
He's currently being held on $100,000 bail after being arrested on charges of felony child abuse.
The big, brave man is 34-year-old 'Imperial Irrigation District Director', Anthony Sanchez from California. His neighbour recorded a video of him relentlessly whipping his step-son with a belt... the young boy's crime? - Failing to catch a baseball!!
The neighbour, Oscar Lopez, took the video last Wednesday from inside his house.
It shows the boy first dropping the baseball, then our hero, Sanchez, begins hitting him with the belt. Lopez shouts for the bashing to stop. He said that he posted the video on Facebook and YouTube then passed it on to authorities.
Let's hope that Sanchez is jailed for this attack - perhaps he might meet a fellow inmate that doesn't take too kindly to child abusers.
Caution - This video shows the clear and callous abuse of a child by his guardian - Do not watch if easily offended.
