:'( Taken from http://www.kpho.com/news/14272202/detail.html The guy's myspace is still up and his blog accepts public comments. He's going to have plenty to read when he gets out of prison! http://www.myspace.com/arze78 His Myspace Blog MESA, Ariz. -- A Phoenix-area father accused of regularly beating his 5-year-old daughter over the past few months told police he disciplined her because she does not want to do her homework. Ezra Hazell, 29, was booked on Tuesday on five counts of child abuse. Kristie Hazell, 25, the girl's stepmother, was booked on two counts of child abuse. Police said they observed 100 wounds on the girl's back, buttocks, legs, arms and chest. Hazell told police he would normally discipline his daughter by ordering her to get into a push-up position while he stood by her side and beat her with a nylon military belt. In the same incident, Kristie Hazell hit the victim with a computer cord on various parts of her body. During the initial stages of the investigation, the girl was transported to a local hospital were she was evaluated and treated. Results showed numerous bruises and swollen areas externally but no internal damage. ------------------------------- If everyone could please say a prayer for that little girl.... this makes me sick.
