I like to think there’s a special place in hell for people who abuse children and I’m hoping there’s a seat reserved for this asshat. On Sunday, March 26th in Woonsocket, Kristofer Bernier was arrested and charged with first-degree child abuse for repeatedly slapping his roommates’ 5-month old baby, now identified as Jacob Wilder. Bernier was babysitting the child when the abuse occurred.
Initially police were called to the scene because the baby “fell off the couch” while he was in the kitchen warming a bottle. If you’re not familiar with 5 month olds, they aren’t exactly mobile beyond half assed rolling and eating their own hands. Maybe this is a very advanced baby with an unhealthy addiction to HGTV and he was just reaching for the remote, lost his balance and fell off the couch. It’s happened to me, so why not a 5 month old?
Instead, police discovered the infant’s injuries were not inflicted by any such movement, but by this 25-year-old tic tac dick with a fondness for abusing those that can’t defend themselves. He told police he “lost it” when the baby wouldn’t stop crying. Now, again, maybe you aren’t familiar with 5 month olds or haven’t left your mom’s basement this century, but babies cry. A LOT. I have an infant about the same age and until recently I was convinced he is possessed. Babies are sweet, cute, and cuddly, but they can also be irrational demons. I let it slide and keep ours around because well, he’s an infant and has no idea what’s going on around him and that’s probably pretty overwhelming literally every second of the day.
So, infants, they cry a lot. But apparently douchelord here didn’t realize this fun fact and decided the best way to stop a baby from crying isn’t to comfort, console, feed, change, rock said baby, but rather to slap the baby around “several times.” The baby was brought to the hospital with facial bruising and a possible hematoma. I’d venture a guess these were some pretty hefty “slaps” and maybe more than “several” considering it sounds like the baby suffered some very serious injuries. I’m not sure what level of absolute garbage you have to be to even think about even laying a hand on a baby, but it’s somewhere in the ballpark of pushing grandmas and being a pedophile. In other words, it’s REALLY despicable.
I feel like the operative phrase here would be, “why don’t you pick on someone your own size?” but I can’t remember if Roger Williams Zoo has a wild boar exhibit.
This only gets more revolting because it turns out this isn’t Bernier’s first run-in with alleged violence against a child. In July 2013 he was arrested for assault and battery on a child:
Kristofer Bernier, 21, of 115 Mechanic St., Bellingham, was arrested at 7:53 p.m. Monday on Mechanic Street on charges of domestic assault and battery and assault and battery on a child, police said.
Apparently, this was a case of second degree child abuse and Bernier was accused but the charges were dismissed. The pattern of disgraceful behavior remains. If convicted now, this winner could be looking at 10+ years, which should give him plenty of time to think about putting an end to this shitbaggery. Let’s hope he doesn’t reproduce.
