David SteigerSPARTA, MI – Police arrested 19-year-old David Steiger after his newborn boy was found with 19 broken bones.

Not a lot of details regarding how police were alerted to Steiger, but he was taken into custody on July 2. Reports state Steiger admitted he pushed his 20-day-old son’s leg until he heard a “pop” sound. According to police, that sound was the baby’s femur and tibia breaking.  Steiger also admitted his son fell off the couch while he watching him.

A medical examination would reveal the baby had suffered more abuse than the two instances Steiger admitted to, unless the couch was at the top of a long flight of stairs. The baby was found with a total of 19 broken bones.

Steiger admitted that he, and not his wife, may be to blame for his son’s injuries but can’t say for sure because he “blacked out”. Steiger was officially charged with first degree child abuse on July 5. A neighbor told reporters that there were warning signs in the days before Steiger was arrested.

“He had the baby and he comes walking across the lawn and I was in the pool.  I looked at the baby and I hear him gasp for air and I was like, ‘What is wrong with your baby?’” the friend claims.  “I said you need to take him to the doctor and he said ‘I can’t because protective services will be all over me.’”

I’m not going to jump on the neighbor for not immediately calling police, as they may be the ones who did. The baby’s mother surely should have known something was wrong with her baby though, right? She has not been charged with any crime, and is expected to be a witness in the case against her husband.

A judge set Steiger’s bond at $100,000 and he’s expected back in court for a preliminary hearing July 17. His baby, Jason, was taken to the Helen Devos Children’s Hospital in Grand Rapids where he is listed in fair condition.

    I am positive that this kid will have the shit kicked out of him in Kent county jail. I grew up on that said of the state – known people in that jail – and I know for a fact this guy is going to take major beatdowns before july 17. I’m just bummed out I can’t watch or participate.

  • amanda Beth

    What a pathetic piece of shit he is! Someone needs to break his legs off and shove them straight up his ass! Why is these type of animals allowed to even live another day? The mom needs her teeth knocked out and beaten with a ball bat. I will never understand some women when it comes to their children! Why would you take a piece of dick over your child or allow the scum to hurt your baby?

  • Evan

    how could she not know!!?!?!?!?!

    hey one last thing: a) is there any chance this baby has a condition where his bones are super fragile and break under weak conditions? b) that’s awesome that the baby is in fair condition now. I hope he gets a new family who loves him big time!!

  • mean birch

    He better learn to rely on blacking out while he’s in prison.

  • techsupp0rt

    Damn, I missed one. I was reasonably confident that this guy would be from Florida, simply because he looks like a cross between this guy http://www.dreamindemon.com/2013/07/09/son-puts-father-critical-condition-learning-affair/ and this guy http://www.dreamindemon.com/2013/07/10/teens-young-adults-accused-florida-shooting-spree-claimed-lives/. Can’t win ‘em all I guess…

  • Eliza Berntsen

    And leave him there, gasping for air.

    You mean such weak conditions when their legs (bones) are pushed until they pop? Yeah, I’m sure that’s the case.

  • Parrot Toes

    I would gladly break 19 of this asswipes bones. Then I would gladly break 187 more. That would be a fitting punishment methinks.

    Unless the baby has an underlying medical condition, a baby’s bones are very hard to break, especially a newborn’s. The bones haven’t hardened fully to ease birth.

  • Jessica Stewart

    Light bulbs up the ass, then caning, then abrasively applied poison ivy, then just tie him to a wall. Post the whole thing on live stream until he dies, .99 cents a minute to watch. In order to help the child, take bets on how long he’ll survive and donate all profits from these endeavors to a fund for the kid. “until he heard a “pop” sound” Fuck you man! Just FUCK YOU!

  • Jessica Stewart

    All babies have this thing where their bones are still developing…..’cause they’re babies….

  • Leasha

    Only child abuse? Why not attempted murder? An early Rest in Peace is in order for the baby, as he will surely not survive once his “dad” gets him back. Throw mom in jail too, stupid bitch can’t be THAT fucking vapid to NOT notice a newborn with over a dozen broken bones. Fucking stupid. That poor baby will be dead soon and they’ll probably birth another one to become daddy’s punching bag.

  • Buffettgirl

    I would be satisfied with simply multiplying the number of bones in his skull to 19.

  • Rachel Ann

    What’s that thing on his chin? Looks like a shit stain.
    It’s a baby doing what babies do and this cock sucker decides instead of doing what “normal” people do, he decides to be a dick face and break his baby. As if the doctors were just gonna not attribute the babies crying to the 19 broken bones this dick face broke.

  • Aussie Sabbath

    Why would you get married at 19? Oh wait, never mind, the appearance of the perp explains it – G*d fearing redneck.

  • http://www.facebook.com/kimbev69 Kim Graves

    Babies bones are not easy to break either, doesnt happen with a simple push

  • Robin Renea Tison

    This kid will probably suffer from all kind of pains when hes older, how could the mother be that ignorant to not see the baby was hurt. I can not even comprehend how the hell a newborn could even live with that many broken bones. I know every time someone does something so horrible everyone says they need to be tortured, I think that they should have done to them EXACTLY what they done in the exact same way, This guy should have all his bones broken and be left untreated for several days exactly what he did to the baby

  • Stormblast

    If they made such an item, I’d order a set of them!

  • Stormblast

    Honestly, I think they married and started a family way too young. And, no, that is no excuse for what he did! If you can’t handle the responsibility, then wrap it up or get a tubal/vasectomy.

  • JohnQknowitall

    Most people have, if any, maybe 2 broken bones their entire long lived lives? Jesus Christ almighty… I blame the neighbor for not calling immediately and the dumb fuck baby making mother… The only that separates any of these people from wild animals is that they didn’t eat the injured child.

    Call the police people!!!! Fuck the pain that kid was going through? Compassion anyone?

  • Heather4877

    I doubt that’s what the case is here, but wasn’t there an article on here where the husband and wife had their little girl taken away due to a large amount of broken bones and the husband ended up killing his wife and himself (or something like that)? I the end it turned out that the baby had a condition that led to the broken bones and the parents weren’t guilty of anything.

  • http://www.krashthrills.wordpress.com/ Anthony Mandich

    HOnestly these stories with the newborn babies being fucked up in every way imaginable to man mystify the fuck out of me. I have a daughter who was born april 14th and it has been such a pleasure to be around her. even when she cries i just smile cuz i know that she is alive and letting her feelings be known. breaking her legs? i would smash my own face in before ever harming a hair on her little fat head lol.

    therefore: throw this fucking ass fucking hole to the mother fucking wolves. literally for reals let him go inside a wolf conservatory.

  • Scretch

    hopefully this shit pile will get his ass beat every day of his first 6 months in prison.
    Maybe the inmates will hear the pop sound when his bones break.
    Little Jason is actually lucky to have made it, from the types of abuse that were inflicted on him. Hopefully he’ll have a good life once all his injuries heal. Poor baby. :(
    Mother didn’t know about any of this going on?? BULLSHIT! She really needs to divorce his ass and not date until Jason is 18 since she has bad taste in sperm donors. That is if she is even allowed to keep the child after this.

  • Aussie Sabbath

    I sure would like to put the “hang” in hang-dog for him.

  • restlessvagabond

    19 broken bones for baby? 19 broken bones for dad.

  • Lakme Hesse

    I think it is bull that she didn’t know and aren’t there wellness checks or whatever those are called for babies that small and at least a home visit or two (i’m assuming they were on welfare and had medicaid for the baby).

    I would much rather take a drill to his knees. Not a power drill, the old fashioned hand crank drills so the pain would be slow and excruciating.

    My mother was only 18 when she had me and she never broke anything on me. Their being young is no excuse. He is just evil.

    Hey but don’t worry guys! The harmless guy from canada who made a mocking joke on an online video game about a school shooting in rotting in jail! Good ol’ daddio up top here will be back to “blacking out” and tossing his kid around in no time. All is well.

  • sweekymom

    I just wanted to choke him. Then I looked at that pathetic little patch of hair on his chin and realized it looked like an erect dick with two little balls hanging off the bottom. Pointing straight at his mouth as if to say, “Insert your cock here.”

    And I realized, I don’t have to choke him. With that bit of advertising on his face, someone else is bound to do it for me.

  • WarriorArtemis

    I was 18 when I had my kid too. I will not ever hurt him nor will I ever do anything to neglect him. Which is why I said usually, because I was a young mother too…however, I have seen a lot of jacked up teenaged parents and usually it does not end well.

  • wolfcat

    Most doctors will not do a tubal ligation or vasectomy until you are 28 or the number of kids you have plus your age equal 28. I wanted one when I was 19. There’s nothing wrong with marrying early and having kids young. I had my first kid a few days after my 19th birthday and got married after having my second at the age of 21. Our 5 year anniversary is next month.

  • Aussie Sabbath

    I think there is absolutely something wrong with getting married and/or knocked up at 19. I wouldn’t choose it for my younger sisters. You just don’t have the life experience to fathom sticking around someone for the rest of your life at 19. Most 19 year olds don’t think of marriage beyond the pretty dress and big party.
    When I was 19, I was in my second year of university. I wanted to work, travel the world, fuck anything going, go to awesome parties etc. I had no desire to chain myself down and waste my youth (still don’t at 23.9 years old) You gotta get out there and live life when you’re young without burdening yourself with adult responsibilities. I think of marriage as something for old people, and that there’s better things to do than have children.
    Saying that there’s nothing wrong with marrying/popping sprogs young is a very dangerous message.

  • Aussie Sabbath

    Oh look another redneck downvoted me.

  • wolfcat

    Obviously I did “have the life experience to fathom sticking around someone for the rest of [my] life at 19.” Just because a lot of people don’t does not mean there aren’t a lot of people who do. My youth certainly has not been wasted nor am I feeling chained down. I was ready to get married at the age of 12 and had no delusions of how it would be. Many people are too sheltered growing up and it stunts them. How many young adults can afford to travel the world no matter what their marital status is? A very tiny minority. I’ve been to 26 states and my family loves road trips. We thought about going overseas, but we are saving it for when the kids are old enough to remember it so that it counts for something their whole lives. We want them to really enjoy and appreciate the privileged. Who cares about dangerous? It’s the truth. There really is nothing wrong with marrying young or having kids young if you know what you are doing. That’s anything though. If people can’t figure out that jumping into marriage recklessly is as bad as jumping into debt recklessly then they are hopeless anyways.

  • techsupp0rt

    You’d have to find the ones that will. There’s no real reason that they would deny you a vasectomy other than their own personal morals and opinions, and it’s really none of their business how many kids you want to have, even if it’s none at all. Doctors like that suck.

  • Aussie Sabbath

    Didn’t you ever dream of doing something more than just getting married and having children? You say at 12 you were ready to get married. What about dreaming of a career choice or inventing something awesome and unique? Instead of the usual and predictable end-game of getting married and having children at 19. In the 50’s, that was an acceptable path for young women to take, to get married and have kids that young. Nowadays, women are much more than wives and mothers.

    I actually know a few people in my social circle who have travelled the world (or just about). You wanna know how they could afford it? They got jobs and didn’t pop out children at 19. Some were lucky and got university grants to study abroad. Some went on working holidays (something I’d like to do, when my work runs out)

    It’s not the 1950s anymore. Young women have many more options than to get married and have kids at 19. They can be so much more than a wife and a mum, and should dream of more than just being that. What you said about how you wanted to get married at 12, it just seems so limiting, and that makes me feel sad.

  • wolfcat

    I was a realistic kid. in the 4th grade my boyfriend and I were discussing our engagement and future plans. I wanted to be a lawyer or veterinarian. He wanted to be a lawyer or mortician. He wanted a ton of kids, I wanted maybe 1 or 2 and then to adopt. We discussed how it would not be fair for us both to have careers as heavy duty as lawyer or vet because then our children would be neglected. He volunteered to take the mortician job and take the kids to work. I said absolutely not and was horrified. lol. Then I tried to talk him into being a house husband and watching the kids while I worked. He thought it was a workable idea and considered it. I definitely worked on inventions. They were all pretty impractical like the piano car. roflmao

    Interestingly enough, I ended up being a sahm only because my husband already had a very busy career when we met, and someone had to stay home with the kids. He would have been woefully inadequate at raising children. I already had over a decade of experience raising everyone else’s. It also would have been impractical for him to stay at home and for me to go to work considering starting pay isn’t as sweet as the pay at a job you’ve been at for years.

    Young women may have more options, it does not mean they cannot be happy with the options that were already there…

    I’m only as limited as I make myself. I’m not stuck. I can go to college or leave the country any time I want. I just don’t want to. What makes me most happy is right here at home. I wouldn’t want to be anywhere without them and my life would not be nearly as amazing if they weren’t here. Not to mention it’s great to have a family of my own to share all of these experiences with instead of only leaving them with stories. Why not just take them with so they can see firsthand?

    As for limiting. How limiting is a job? Yick. I hate them. I’m the person who loves to show up and work her butt of for free. I get excited about that. As soon as pay comes up, I get depressed and loose interest and feel obligated and no longer enjoy what I’m doing. I do a lot of volunteer jobs around town. We are also renovating our other house that is an income property, and I raise great dane and irish wolfhounds and rescue animals. Yet, I’m still able to wake up most days of the year and leave if I want to just get up and go somewhere. I don’t call that limited. That’s the smell of freedom. Just last week I decided to jump up and go to the Rainbow Family Gathering in Montana. That was a blast! In February I was able to take off to California for almost a week. About the only thing I can’t do is take my husband with me to a communist country unless he’s retired. Only 12 more years until then.

  • Kimberly Rae Calamito

  • tessiemay

    Sad to think that way. I was married at 18, a mother at 21, and still managed to do just about everything I wanted to achieve. You have a rather immature outlook if you feel marriage and kids make your life cease. They don’t impede you from following your dreams-you just get to do those things with the people you love most. Or, with them cheering you on from the sidelines.

  • tessiemay

    Amusing that you would think early marriage indicates redneck. In my case, nothing could be further from the truth. I could not have achieved my goals without the support (emotional, financial, share of parenting) without him.

  • tessiemay

    Of course, she knew. How sick,,,,actually WANTING to be with the man/child who would do this to your child. Luckily, she can be charged with accessory charges, child endangerment, and a host of other things. How much low self esteem can you have to think this guy is worth it?

  • Aurora Hylton

    Agreed. I was twenty-two when I had my first child. I would say I was probably too young, but I would never have dreamed of abusing her. Nor would my now ex husband. We were shitheads in our own way, but we were not child abusing shitheads.

  • Aurora Hylton

    Hm…I was nineteen when I got married. Not sure I qualify as a “redneck.” Whether or not I do, I’m certainly not a baby-beater. It’s never a good idea to stereotype.

  • Aussie Sabbath

    Can you uproot your husband’s work to go on an Eat Pray Love safari?
    Pull your kids out of school so that you can travel around the country or through Europe, do a working holiday?

    I don’t have to have an “immature” outlook on life to know that having a husband and kids at a young age could stop me from doing what I want to do, and is not something to aspire to. I will save that shit for later (or not at all, because why should I live up to society’s expectations?). You don’t need to rush into these things because it’s not all rainbows and unicorn farts.

    Sheesh, I may not agree with some aspects of the way my mother raised me, but she would have frigging killed me if I got pregnant and/or married at 19. And especially because I have already pointed out that if I got married at 19, my “husband” would be dead by now.

  • Aussie Sabbath

    Wouldn’t it have been all that sweeter if you could rely on yourself to get your goals done, rather than saying you couldn’t have done it without your husband?
    Come on ladies, it’s the 21st century. We don’t need stupid men to get stuff done. (Not even making a baby, once you sow the seeds, you throw the envelope away ;) )

    First off let’s get this straight by renaming the article:

    Teen Sperm Donor Charged with Attempted Murder of a newborn son

    That’s more like it! Take a look at his EVIL face a pic. says 1,000 words! Prayers for this lit’l trooper 19 bones broken? Just wait – K A R M A is KING when the other inmates find out what this POS did then hopefully every bone in his demented body will be B R O K E N. Prison hospital? Nah, just let it HEAL by itself right? Attempted murder charges instead of “child abuse” how many bones can you break before the newborn is DEAD? That’s the question!
