a 6 month old BABY? Really? What is wrong with people? Hope he feels like a real man now. **eye roll**.
May he rot in jail and someone in there teaches him a lesson (don't drop the soap buddy). Scumbag.

Apparently someone had to know about this. And it was not turned in to CYS. What the Hell is wrong with you ? If you baby is irritating you set it down and walk away , not break it's arm or fracture it's skull. You need to be locked up for good.

turn-about is fair play, tie him up, and let the town folk take turns at beating him up. can't kill him, but it is amazing as to exactly one can live thru!!! jail is to good for people like this,tired of payin to keep 'em locked up......

Come on people....these are alleged allegations. Please, we don't know the facts, this could simply be someone wanting to get someone else in trouble. Why are you people so quick to attack so viciously without hearing multiple sides first. If this was your son and you knew he was innocent, you would want people to hear his side of his story. Maybe, just maybe he is innocent (until proven guilty). Geez, if I am ever falsly accused of something, I hope I never get such judgemental folks on my jury. Don't get me wrong here, if he is guilty of these horrible crimes, then by all means...he deserves the worst. But please have an open mind ~ this would be horrible if you were in his shoes or his families shoes. No matter what, an infant was injured by someone and that is awful. My heart goes out to him and his family. CYS should be all over this.

So the baby beat him self up for the last 6 months? Usually when you hear of stories like this, it's true and the police don't just go throwing names out there and putting people behind bars for the fun of it. The suspect is usually found guilty and they have some sort of proof to the allegations. Sure, people who know him want to protect him. But what about the helpless baby? Who's protecting him? Apparently not CPS or the mother! where is the mother in this? Why didn't she stop it. In my opinion, she should be in trouble too because you had to have known about this. Bruises don't just show up on a baby.

I agree on not jumping to the quilt verdict. If it is true, maybe the mom was in denial or scared to come forward. Not what you will call an upstanding, hard working couple if ya know what I mean.

Anonymous said...

Look, I don't know this guy and I am not trying to protect him. The police have an obligation to file a police report based on someone elses statements. I am not saying that there isn't proof...and certainly the baby did not beat himself up. I have no idea what the circumstances are or who the mother is or where she is. If you were beeing accused of such a heinous crime, and you knew you were innocent, would you want people bashing you and saying awful things like....may you rot in jail, you need to be locked up for good, tie you up, and let the town folk take turns at beating you up? Not saying that he is innocent, just trying to understand why 20 minutes after this story was posted people were already judging, convicting and sentencing him.

The story makes it sound like he IS being charged, seeming like he confessed to it. It doesn't say he allegedly abused the baby, but that he did. Maybe I'm reading it wrong.

"Pennsylvania State Police say Robert Lee Fiske, 21, of Genesee, abused the boy a number of times over the past six months. Fiske is charged with aggravated assault and endangering the welfare of a child, both felonies, and Simple assault, reckless endangerment and harassment."

In any case, I hope the baby is ok and is put in to the arms of people who really love him.

Anonymous said...

lets just say. whoever did this does not need jail time. he needs pain!!! break his arms,legs and throw him around so he has a skull fracture. I can,t even imange the pain that baby went through and could not even tell someone. If we did the same thing to the person who did the crime I think they would think first before doing it and our jails would not be full.

"A Potter County man faces multiple charges, including two felonies, for alleged assaults on a 6-month-old boy causing skull and arm fractures."

It does state alleged assaults. Remember just because the police say he abused the boy, they are only reporting what has been reported to them.

After doing some reasearch on Mr. Fiske, he doesn't actually have what you would call a great track record...but let's let the courts decide.

I also hope the baby is ok and gets placed into a loving home.

I grew up with the baby's father and He would NEVER hurt one hair on his son's head HE'S INNOCENT he loves his son very much Robert Loves kids and I can Trust him around my 6 month old SO STOP DISSING HIM unless you guys know mr.fiske in person just leave him alone and quit saying junk about him he's had a rough life he's cheated death a matter of times and i'm greatfull that he's still alive. Mr. Fiske is a GREAT father. He didn't do all this to his son. this is a bunch of BS he went to get his son check out at the hospital cause he noticed a bump on his son's head. Plus you got to think here for a minute the baby is after all 6 months old he's rolling around and any thing can happen when a 6 month old starts rolling over. My 6 month old is rolling over also and she rolls into alot of things.

I also know of Bobby Fiske and if you recall he has been in the news quite a bit, NOT IN A PRODUCTIVE, POSITIVE WAY. Saying you would trust you baby with him only tells me you are one of his many ahh say friends.

Anonymous said...

Oh man. It takes a lot more than a baby to roll around to get a broken arm and a fractured skull. Please. I'm a mother of two boys (3 years and 19 months), and they are rough with each other. They do get bumps and bruises, but a fractures skull, broken arm and other signs of abuse from just rolling over? Open your eyes. If HE didn't do it, someone else that cares for the child did.

Anonymous said...

and what would all the hate actions prove? It may make us feel better for a bit but perhaps that is how bobby was raised...with agression..verbal and physical...we don't know nor will we but one thing is for sure we are not to judge for God will judge bobby. Prayers for this child and his family on both sides are needed. May this child go to a home where he feels nothing but love and comfort for years to come.

Anonymous said...

You are kidding me! You can not blame your past for the actions you take on as an adult. There is no reasoning behind what has happened to this child. No child at any age deserves abuse of any kind. And if in fact it happened to him, he should know better. If in fact he did it, and I believe he has the capability of doing so, he is not a good father. I wouldnt trust him with our dog. I dont think you would have the same opinion or feeling about him if this had happened to your child. If you know whats good for you, you may want to keep your children away from him. Feel free to stop defending him, in the end, if he does turn out to be guilty. Your going to feel very foolish!

ANNA said...

May this baby not go home to this same family. If something has been going on for 6 months, then where was the rest of the family. For God's sake wake up. Where was the MOTHER? If she knew and he is found guilty of this hideous crime, then she should go up too. They will probably blame it on drug or alcohol abuse and this may be so, but whoever is to blame should pay dearly for this. I am feeling like the first people who blogged. Set him out in the courthouse square and let the public take action. Beating an infant or an child is not exceptable.

Are you kidding me? Are you a functional retard? What in the hell does a 6 month old roll into that would give him a fractured skull and arm fractures? I have a pretty good idea that it would take a pissed off adult to do that.

I believe the blog of 4:00 says perhaps it does not blame the past for actions bobby may have taken as an adult...He will be judged as the blog says. Lets hope the child is placed in a home where he experiences love, patience and caring. Has one person asked how the infant is doing? Functional retard? Lets hope you never have a child with a learning disability. Again such a verbal display of hate.

Except for the baby of course.. maybe next time (and there will be a next time) Mr. Fisk does this it could be the last !

How dare anybody "blame" the baby himself for his injuries! 6 month old babies do not give themselves broken arms, legs, and fractured skulls. X-rays can tell alot from the way the arms and legs are broken and I'm 110% positive, these injuries did not occur from a baby rolling himself around. The last time Potter County had a case like this a beautiful innocent 2 year girl paid with her life! I supposed she slammed herself against the wall too causing her fatal injuries! Get a clue "friends" of Fiske. Personally, I hope he rots in hell.

For all of you saying "innocent until proven guilty" and these are just allegations, give me a break! It is my understanding from a good source that this monster actually admitted to what he did. He certainly needs to be held accountable for this sick behavior. And anyone that feels that they can trust him with their child or even as a friend in general needs to take a really long hard look at their life and make some changes before it is too late. Bobby has cheated death several times but it has been his stupid poor choices that have put him into these harmful situations in the first place. Come on, he has shot himself with a rifle and flipped a truck because he was driving like an idiot for starters. Not exactly the sharpest tool in the shed. I am praying for this child and family (since CYS will undoubtedly try to keep the baby with family) that someone can be found to provide a safe home for this innocent victim.

Conservatively Speaking said...

For 36 years, ever since the "not so supreme court" wrote the decision in Roe vs. Wade, we have lived in a culture of death. Life has been cheapened. It's really no wonder that many people don't see the value of an infant's life and the overriding need of our society to protect babies (born and unborn). Now we have a President and leadership in congress who are pushing pro-death, abortion friendly policies. Things will likely get worse. In the instant case, the defendant, if found guilty, after a fair trial, deserves the most serious punishment there is.

come on people the cops arent gonna arrest somebody for something to do !!and to the person 2:56 blog Ive never heard of a kid rolling around and hitting their head that hard!!I have 3 kids and he would be lucky if he even got a chance to look their way!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!sorry but you cant sit here and tell me you would leave your child with someone that just might be a child abuser!!!if so then maybe you shouldnt have your baby!! ITs YOUR JOB TO PROTECT YOUR CHILD NOT YOUR FRIEND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Anonymous said...

I am a Mom to six kids and NEVER have any of my children suffered broken bones due to normal daily activity. A six month old baby can hardly roll around enough to harm themselves, they are just learning to roll over! A baby can fall a distance and not suffer broken bones, as their bones are soft. So this bay was hurt very badly, at the hands of the person who is supose to protect and love him (her).

This is sad and I have tears for this baby. How can anyone treat a helpless little baby in such a way to cause it pain. It is just plain sick and I don't care the reasons, it's is just sick!

I also agree "someone" knew about this! What if the baby had died of head trauma, this is not the first little one to be abused or even killed in this area. I too would like to know about the mother of this baby. Where is she in all this. How can anyone get away with allowing this in their home and not be considered part of it?

I can promise you the mother of this little one knew just what was happening. If she did not, she should have added charges of neglect on her hands for not taking care of her baby. Any Mom who is close to her baby, knows every little tiny detail of that child and is in tune to his or her needs. And for the Mom to allow this, is criminal. She should be arrested too.

The reason why so many are agressive and ready to attack who ever did this, is because this is a baby. This baby can not even defend itself! I am a Mom, I love my kids and God help anyone who tries to hurt them. I would give my life or go to jail to protect them if I had to.

This sort of thing stirs up anger deep within and I hope that the persons involved in hurting this little baby, are put in prison for a long long time.

I have no idea what is wrong with people like this, they do not belong in society.

If your child is rolling around the house hard enough to break anything then there is a problem, its called neglect,i have 2 daughters and trust you me there would have been nothing they could have done to fracture their skull or break any other bones, and if your baby is continuously rolling off of furniture and falling down steps at this age then you need not to be a parent, you are there to protect your babies not harm them.....somewhere down the line this baby was physically abused and i dont care what his stupid undereducated family or friends say!!!!...i hope everyone involved rots in HELL!!!!...and i'm sure they will get this baby back,like a couple in Ny state but the other couple is now facing a life sentence for burning their 10 month old with cigarettes, this baby was tied down and literally burned half to death and guess what the baby was first taken for almost the same thing...it's bullshit and if your kids get taken why do you deserve to get them back??????

CYS is a joke. They give the children back to the same abusive home they came from just to look good and get them off their books so they can say they saved money. how many kids are in foster homes in Potter County? Not many. CYS is not about the children its about money and politics.

Anonymous said...

both sides be careful. if you defend this guy and he admits to this, those who defend him are made to be fools.

if it turns out fiske is somehow not responsible for this poor infant's injuries, those who cry for blood will be made fools.

however, its nearly impossible for these injuries to be the result of a baby "rolling around". a baby can fall down a full flight of stairs without getting injuries like this (the "fall" would be just a series of 8-12 inch drops, less than if a child is standing and falls)

i'm confident the cops found who committed the crimes against this infant.

i'm less confident in our district attorney who has a bad PUBLIC track record of protecting the children of this county.

i have zero confidence in the district magistrate who first hears this case at an evidence hearing. she has an absolutely disgraceful PUBLIC track record.

my heartfelt prayers go to the infant child and his family that were not responsible for his abuse.

hopefully this is a call to arms for the kind and loving people of potter county (who are, by the way, the majority) to consider becoming foster parents for children who need a loving and caring home environment.

JUSTICE for all...

a child abuser or a molester does Not deserve to have there child back or have a child ever. if you cant treat a child right from day one.. chances are youll never treat a child right ever and dosnt deserve to have a gift of having a child. where was the mother at? if he didnt do it.. how can someone else hurt someone elses child? every child has the right to have a good upbringing and have the right to have a good future.. adults shouldnt ruin that for them just because they are all screwd up in the head. im not saying hes guilty or not..but who ever done this to a 6 month old or any child doesnt deserve squat. prayers are for the little baby.

it also was really stupid to come on a blog and have the balls to blame it on the 6th month old baby.i have 3 kids and they never once got a injury like this due to rolling around. i understand the mother being scared to reporting the issue maybe that person was beating her too? i dunno..

well i have personaly seen the baby numerious times and he is rough with the kids it is pretty sad he admited to everything that the judge and state police asked him so all of you think he is a good guy maybe you better think again his bail needs to be set higher or send him to camp hill where he should learn what he did and i bet their is someone in jail will show him

Before posting blogger 10:06, about our DA’s track record in protecting our children, please find the time to research what she has fought for in the Courtroom and what the Judge has sentenced. You might find that your lack of confidence should be placed on the one sitting on the bench, not the one fighting the fight.

Your District Attorney's dad represented the rapist from Austin.

Both cases plea bargained? Why? Let your DA tell us why. Let her tell us "...what she has fought for in the Courtroom..." with these victims.

I think the 10:06 Blogger's lack of confidence can be validated by a single incident let alone 2 with multiple victims.

Don't blame your Judge, your District Attorney decides what goes to Court and more importantly what doesn't.

Although I can only assume that you are referring to my post at 12:25 I will gladly respond. Please, by all means I hope that those who would invest the time would look at the sites that you have posted. Please note the charges for one thing, very serious right?? Then please note the SENTENCE that was given to them.

By all accounts Leber fanatics seem to come out of the wood work....unfortunately those that follow him try all attempts, no matter how pathetic, to insinuate that Ms. Fink controls what sentence the Judge gives out.

When you can’t discredit the fine job she has done, hoping that you can point out other’s errors and make them her’s really is childish don’t you think??

Ahh, the name calling. Leber fanatic, try JUSTICE fanatic. If that makes me pathetic and childish I'll live with the brand. Funny how you chose to address your agenda rather than the issue.

You want to blame your Judge, go ahead, but it's rare for Judges to reject plea bargains. Of course, with what appears to be your "inside" knowledge, you already know that.

Public disclosure of the terms of the plea bargain would be interesting. Lets see what your pony offered these degenerates and that would settle it once and for all. I'm willing to wager the sentence correlates with the deal offered to the rapists.

It's suspicious how "tough on crime" your DA is in an election year so I'm quite sure she won't let the public down on this case. At least JUSTICE will be served.

This is what I'd do- ask the next five cops you run into who they would rather work with, your current DA or her opponent.

Oh, nice touch to bashing a lame duck Judge who honorably served your county for so long, CLASSY!

Well, to all of you who "thinks" Robert Fiske is innocent,better think twice! He has admitted in all local papers about the abuse he imposed on his own son! He is such a disgrace! He doesnt need to be in jail,he needs to be in hell for what he has done! This is an innocent baby,he cant fend for himself! And now,since this guy as admitted to his ignorance,he now asks the judge for full custody??? He is one,sick S.O.B!!!!!

Sabrina said...

I read the paper this morning. I cannot believe the people who are sticking up for this man even after what he has admitted too. To read all the things he has done is severely upsetting. I have a 14 month old son and believe me he has "rolled around and fell" many times and only had a bruise or two. NEVER a broken bone! Once I read the paper it made me want to go be by that child's side and show him what love really is! I hope this child gets put with a family that can show him the love that a REAL PARENT can. I pray he will be ok and never have to go through a thing like this again. He should have never had to in the first place.

To the post @ Tuesday, April 7, 2009 2:56:00 PM EDT. I think maybe, just maybe, you havent seen an abused child Vs. a bruised child from rolling around. Not in anyway, shape, or form, will a child end up with an fractured arm, and a fractured skull, with internal bleeding. Its impossible for a 6 month old to end up in this kind of condition by just rolling around. Back to reality. If the police charged him for it then its over for him. Becuase Big Bubba is waiting for him in jail.

There has to be a reason why this mom didn't say anything, I don't know if she was being beaten too but she has another child also and never did she beat that child. She is a good mom, and I do understand how could a good mom let someone beat their kids and the truth is I don't know, I know that I would notice and do something abot it, but NONE of you on here has been in that situation, so don't judge her unless you get her side of the story too, maybe i'm wrong and she just let it go on but I know her so well, she's great with kids and she loves her kids and I just can't put this on her. Maybe cause i'm her friend, she's my daughters godmom, and its shocking. I just really hope that she didn't do anything to her son or daughter and that she takes the appropriate action now.

I have sat here for the last hr or so reading all the comments about what has happened to this little guy,and I must say I do agree with alot of them.When something like this happenes to little ones who cant defend themselves or speek out like you or I can,we get on the defensive right away and we dont even have to know them and what makes it worse is when we do.
But that to me does not matter if this person knows the mother or the father, the only one i am concerned about is the little guy.
My daughter and i sat at the table and talked about this,and the one thing she said to me was mom close your eyes and put yourself in the mind of that babys.And you know i did that and i thought when a baby crys he or she is trying to tell us (hey im hungry, tired, need to be changed,just want to be held and loved),Not im trying to make you so mad that you hurt me. I just cant believe anyone could be so hateful to do this.There are so many people out there who cant have children and want to ,and those of us who have them and thank god everyday for blessing us with them. I would hope that the best interest of that little guy is the #1 thing that is being looked after. He needs to be put in a good home where he can be shown that there are people out there who would take good care of him,and show him that what has been going on the first six months of his life wasnt what he was put here to go threw.And that he was a special gift from up above and just needs to be loved.

It is really sad to think about what the baby was feeling and seeing during all of this. One of the people that were supposed to love him unconditionally was hurting him. That is so upsetting. I hope he "gets his".

I have to say that I hope that the gentleman goes to prison for a really long time. Believe me, after working in corrections, I can guarantee that he will be reprimended behind the gates by all of the other inmates. Also, I have to agree with the way this government works in such that if you are friends, went to school with, etc, etc...You can do about anything and get off.

All I have to say IS I know what it is like to be falsely accused of something someone else did and I wish for Bob's sake that were true..I have known him and his family since I Was a small child..they were like family to me growing up.....I Love them all very much and my heart goes out to them but after the last few months of seeing Bob at work and other places and the things he was doing I am not sure I really ever knew him at all....all I do know is that people should not be quick to judge but if this is true I AM deeply saddened and sick by this I hate CHild abuse more then anything in this world.....NO child should ever have to endure that much pain.....They were not asked to be brought into this world and certainly did not ask to be harmed...just loved and protected!!!!!

Typical . . . Isn't it, that the Watson/Leber fanclub uses a serious situation such as this politically to secure any votes they can. Let's just bash the DA and the Judge. This just shows exactly how they work and will continue to work. Typical . . .

make a paper dragon and fight it all you want, then call yourself a hero.

the only people who have made comments here that have evoked the "L" word or the "W" word have been folks who are supporting our current da.

do you really think you're fooling any of the intelligent readers here?

do you even realize the irony of your comment? its you who's exploiting this situation you self righteous goof.

shame on you whoever you are!

My Heart BREAKS for this helpless little baby boy!! I had my little girl just over a month after he was born and I cried my eyes out while reading about all the horrible things his dare I say father did to him. I could never imagine being able to sit back and not do anything or claim to not notice anything wrong. As a mother of 3, I notice every red mark, scratch, or wierd breath my baby takes from the next room when we are all sleeping. It is completely OUTRAGEOUS to make any excuse for the mother that would let her off the hook!! You can't tell me that there wasn't some point in time that she couldn't have said something to someone. Any mother in their right mind would die to protect their child.
As a child I grew up in the P.C. CYS system. I endured abuse in these so called safe homes, that WAS swept under the rug! Even though I'm far from the biggest fan of the system in Potter County, They so far have been able to make things right for this baby. I hope he is placed in a home with people that genuinly care for him and show him what real love is!!
A big huge KUDOS to Dr. Rigas and the staff in her office that no doubtedly SAVED this baby's life!!!

he admitted to it all...he is going to jail....where he belongs...i wanted to cry after reading the article in the paper...and besides if he falsly admitted to it all then there is something wrong with him and he should not have a child...

I know his family, the apple didn't fall from the tree. Bob did it, they don't put you in jail for lack of eveidence. I also agree if that baby was being abused since birth, ever who didn't report it should be strung up also. But the law doesn't work that way. His bail being so high should also tell you that there is alot of evidence & Bob is a threat to any child in our community. He obviously needs treatment, mentally for anger management & parenting skill classes. I believe in second chances & bashing a 21 yr old father & yelling throw away the key is just as ignorant as the acts he done. Be part of the solution, not part of the problem.

Potter County CYS does need a overhaul. Our County being so little they make their own rules. They falsify records. Most of the foster care & respite homes children are placed in are used for free labor & the juicy check they recieve. The case workers of CYS have more issues then most of the families they say their helping. Take it from me, BEEN THERE, DONE THAT!! Go to your church or family for help. CYS destroyed my life. I fought back and won. But it took its toll. Don't be like me, I called them for help & trusted them. They do not work in the best interest of the family. I can't get back what I lost but I can inform others before they make the mistake I did so many years ago.
