According to the New York Daily News, this past Father’s Day, Taylor let his anger come out again and now stands accused of beating his 16-month-old daughter into a coma. The girl’s mother, Tammy Lewis, dropped little Nylaha off with her father so he could spend quality time with his daughter. Hours later, she received a Facebook message from Taylor saying something was wrong with Nylaha and she needed to come get the child. When Lewis arrived to pick up her daughter, she found her lying face up on the couch and struggling to breathe. Lewis grabbed her daughter and ran out of the apartment and Taylor pursued her into the lobby. That’s when he punched her and knocked her unconscious, leaving both baby and mother on the floor. He then grabbed his daughter and gave her to a friend and went back to his apartment. The friend called 911 and when help arrived, the toddler was rushed to the hospital.

Nylaha’s situation was grim; according to police, she suffered bleeding on the brain, two skull fractures and bruises covering her legs, face and other parts of her body — all at the hands of her father. When police questioned Taylor about the child’s injuries, he told them Nylaha had fallen off the bed.  Police arrested Taylor and charged him with felony assault for beating both Lewis and her child.

Little Nylaha is in critical condition and is not expected to survive her injuries at Maimonides Hospital in Brooklyn, New York. According to police records, Taylor was charged with sexual misconduct in 2015 because he was in a relationship with Lewis, who was only 14 at the time. A year later, he was arrested again for harassing her.

    Real scum. Lock him up forever but let Gen Pop know what he did.

    Definitely some issues mentally with this guy. To even think about hitting a baby, let alone his own.

    This is what happens when you have babies by losers. The mom should also be charged for leaving this baby with this idiot.

      You sound ‘STUPID””

      Do you know the law??? Even if a boy/man don’t pay ‘Child Support the ‘Judge would still give him the right to see the child…The mother was doing the right thing, Now if he had did something to the baby in past…Then maybe yes she should be ‘Charge”

      But before you say something ””Crazy”” get all of the facts

    This is what happens when you want to have a good time without birth control, Once pregnant, she can do what she likes and did. He should have used a condom or stayed away from her. Unprotected sex is not a right, it’s a privilege. Lie Furious styles said in BOYS N DA HOOD, even if she says she is on the pill. USE A CONDOM ANYWAY. But he has anger management issues.

    Prison is not going to be nice for this guy.

    My prayers goes out to this sweet baby and her mother…

    Please do not have a trial ”DEATH PENALTY !!!!!!!!

    This stinking little puke ball doesn’t deserve to breathe another breath. To do this to this poor little innocent baby. I hope he gets his just desserts in jail !!!

    Good riddance to this guy. Throw the book at him

    He should get the death penalty, an eye for an eye, circumstances change when your doing time for beating and killing a poor defensless baby girl. No one likes, I should say everyone hates these mother fuc–ers that think their tough by beating up and killing an innocent child, that is the worst scum, you don’t get any lower inside a prison for those who beat up or kill those who are vulnerable. What is so WRONG with people nowadays, oh my gosh! there is no thought process behind any action, what makes someone do something so horrible, he deserves to burn in hell for what he did, give him as much mercy as he gave his poor baby girl.

    May God be with you little Angel. You have served your purpose on earth and now you need to go home and move over to the other side and find peace.

    this is the new law child support has caused black men to go mad, they are litterally saying you will pay for this child , no matter if you like the mother or not , cause you had no condom on so that makes it your fault , so you pay . i dont know if she filed on him yet but you can bet , she was on her way , no way she was gonna pay for this kid 18 years , its usually where if he is not reported he accumilate back pay , so if the kid is 4 when she file he has to pay her back pay ,which is a lot , she may have knew this , girls dont realize they also cant go out her getting kid by men now days , cause murder is a key factor in this situtaion men feel betrayed , if you want abort the kid , , he knows they choice is your own .. hardly any brother now days want a kid which is gonna deminish the black population if black men will not have children . black men dont utiltize condoms but i bet they will when they all realize what they up against . her you impregant a female you dont want to be bothered with , she has to protect her kid so she file on you .. this man hated that child because he thought about hcild support and someone schooled him and told him he was fighting a losing battle . he was not buying it he wanted out if it mean his life
