A court in Australia has sentenced a man to three years in prison after he went on a vicious homophobia-fueled attack against his own 6-year-old-son and the boy’s mom.
The 28-year-old father of three, who cannot be named for legal reasons, is a landscape gardener who lives in Mackay, North Queensland, according to the Courier-Mail.
During his trial, the court heard that he had come across his 6-year-old son (his eldest child) sitting on the lap of another boy. Incensed at what he perceived as “sexual engagement,” the father then started to beat the boy, screaming “Being gay is wrong,” and, “if they were adults I would have killed them.”
He repeatedly hit and threw his son to the ground, leaving the youngster terrified and bruised.
The boy’s mother then intervened to try and protect her infant daughter. The dad then turned his attention to mom, pinning her to the wall by her throat and telling her, “You better f*** me after this.” He then choked her until she passed out.
