Beaten to Death in Plain Sight: 8-Year-Old Gabriel’s Story

In May 2013, Gabriel Fernandez was beaten to death (allegedly) by his mother & her boyfriend. The main person who tried to save his life was his 1st grade teacher, Jennifer Garcia. PolitiChick anchor Ann-Marie Murrell interviews Jennifer about her important role in Gabriel’s very brief life.

    It is a shame that the poor child had to die for him to get some justice. With all the reports of abuse, these pathetic so-called social workers still left him there. This makes me cry, this child did not deserve to be so abused. We failed to protect this child and social services should be held responsible. Do not let the child’s death go unpunished. At least, he is not being hurt anymore.

    • question_er

      Whoa there, Aristo … “WE failed to protect this child?” Do you live in LA? And I can only assume the “we” you refer to are fellow Californians who keep electing BAD people who allow pathetic CPS people to NOT be fired (better yet, JAILED!)

      • Aristophanes

        Do you have a guilty conscience that you only picked up on the “We”? Yes, society (I am assuming you are a part of the human race) failed to protect this child and all the other children before him and, unfortunately, all the children who will come after him. Does not matter where this one incident happened, it happens all over the world. California is not the only place on earth that this happens, sad to say.

  • Edwin Gurney

    They should both die just as this dear child was forced to.

    May that poor little boy rest in peace. Also may God Bless this teacher for caring so much and little Gabrial.

    Child services are to Blame. The parents are at fault, but child services are to blame. They must have known about the reports from the teacher……..It has been my experience that people in Social services are as useful as a screen door in a submarine….Zero common sense and by the book which is also useless…..

  • thecelt1

    It Seems like this type of Child Protective Service operation is a Common Action (Leave The child in the bad situation). I can’t figure out why. A sickening situation!

      Any bets they say that they don’t want to break up the family.! SICK

    He wasn’t beaten by humans; he was beaten by monsters.

  • montee

    I pray for Gods justice. Our system could NEVER give the murderers of this dear child what they deserve. Thank you Jennifer for caring. You were probably the only person in his life who made him smile. Gabriel is no longer scared and hurting but in the arms of his Jesus :)

    A loving teacher and a social worker who didn’t give a darn. God bless the teacher.

      so true, scums of the earth, deserve to have their lives ended.

      • Aristophanes

        Nah. Give them 8 years of the same treatment they gave to Gabriel before they are killed. I think that would be fair and rather poetic.

  • FreetheBirds

    Those CPS monsters need to be prosecuted also…aiding and abetting child abuse.
    I don’t think I can ever work in a classroom again. This is part of the reason why.

  • PAWatcher

    The first step for Social Services is to be educated on child abuse and molestation- it is not a mom/partner losing their temper- it is sadism. Molestation is not love of the child- but like rape it is terror and dominance. Good starting points.
    God bless Gabriel, he deserved to be protected.

  • Lloyd

    Let the punishment fit the crime. Find a 400 pound, muscle bound, half witted, homicidal maniac on steroids and put mommy dearest and boyfriend in an 8X10 cell with him and tell him they are for his personal fun and gratification. The ratio would be about the same as this poor kid and those monsters. Of course, the outcome would be their death, but the terror prior to that outcome would be about equal…..for good measure, toss in the so called “child protection” social worker too.

    • okihadit

      right on!

  • Hagar

    I wonder who this was reported to. I would like to see the social worker that was supposed to work on this case.

    You know you live in a Country run by idiots if…

    You can get arrested for expired tags on your car but not for being in the country illegally.

    You have to have your parents signature to go on a school field trip but not to get an abortion.

    An 80 year old woman can be stripped searched by the TSA but a Muslim woman in a burka is only subject to having her neck and head searched

    Your government believes that the best way to eradicate trillions of dollars of debt is to spend trillions more of our money.

    A seven year old boy can be thrown out of school for calling his teacher “cute” but hosting a sexual exploration or diversity class in grade school is perfectly acceptable.

    The Supreme Court of the United States can rule that lower courts cannot display the 10 Commandments in their courtroom, while sitting in front of a display of the 10 Commandments.

    You know you live in a Country run by idiots if…

    Children are forcibly removed from parents who appropriately discipline them while children of “underprivileged” drug addicts are left to rot in filth infested cesspools of a “home”.

    Hard work and success are rewarded with higher taxes and government intrusion, while some slothful, lazy behavior is rewarded with EBT cards, WIC checks, Medicaid, subsidized housing, and free cell phones.

    The government’s plan for getting people back to work is to provide 99 weeks of unemployment checks (to not work).

    Being self-sufficient is considered a threat to the government.

    Politicians think that stripping away the amendments to the constitution is really protecting the rights of the people.

    The rights of the Government come before the rights of the individual.

    You pay your mortgage faithfully, denying yourself the newest big screen TV

    while your neighbor defaults on his mortgage (while buying iPhones, TV’s and new

    cars) and the government forgives his debt and reduces his mortgage (with your

    tax dollars).

    Being stripped of the ability to defend yourself makes you “safe”.

    You know you live in a Country run by idiots if…

      Excellent post and very well thought out.
      Sadly this is probably just the beginning of what we may well see
      as “American Citizens” in a country we used to be proud of, but
      now hardly recognize.

      • Average_Joe56

        FormerLadyLaw,
        Thank you so much. Praise is always welcome…it means I did or said something right. Sadly, I agree with you whole heartedly, that this is just the beginning of coming attractions.
        At this point, my best advice is: stock up on precious metals….(Lead is looking like a very good investment), storable food and emergency supplies.
        Keep your heads down and your powder dry…we’re in for a very bumpy ride in the near future.

        • FormerLadyLaw

          Hey Joe! Still enjoying your post! :) Regarding your advice I’ve

          pretty well got that category all sewed up. Been doing it for quite
          some time, especially with (now) FOUR former racing greyhounds
          to keep my sanity in check too. One look in their eyes, and you’d
          think they saw an angel instead of one who destroys them at 2,
          3, 4 years of age just because they can’t “win.” My “loosers” have
          now replaced any doorbell system I could imagine!! :) From 68 to
          93 pounds worth…don’t knock softly!!!! And your next profound
          “list & topic” will be ???………………….. :))

    This is the very reason I NEVER became a mother because I knew I couldn’t handle children 24/7 and if more women would do this there won’t be so many young lives lost for no reason at all.

    She’s Hispanic, why make a big issue about it. If it was a white girl you would care less. White’s are suppose to love and cherish their own race according to God Yahweh’s laws. They are not suppose to love and cherish another race above their own. Why didn’t you say anything about Channing Christian and Christopher Neusome, Laura Burke, Eve Carson, and Brittany Watts. Oh wait a minute, I know. These were white people that were beaten and murdered (butchered) by blacks. We can’t mention that because blacks are so benevolent and kind. We seem to love to hide the atrocities of blacks, Hispanics, and other race, while at the same time accuse our own race of those very same atrocities.
