BRENT TROY BARTEL CARVED A PENTAGRAM INTO HIS 6 YEAR OLD SON’S BACK

This case of child abuse is so horrific that it literally makes me sick to my stomach.  Maybe it is because I have a little man who is 6.  Maybe it is because this father has displayed what true evil looks like.  Whatever the reason, I can’t get my mind around the fact that a father would do this to his son.

Brent Troy Bartel, carved a pentagram on his 6 year old son’s back with a box cutter.

Once Bartel was done carving the pentagram, he called 911 to report his son was injured and bleeding.

Bartel can be heard saying on the 911 call that he “shed some innocent blood.”.  When asked to clarify what that meant, he stated “I inscribed a pentagram on my son.”.  “On your son?” the dispatcher asked, “Yes Ma’am” replied Bartel.  When the 911 operator asked why he did that, he simply said “Because it’s a holy day.”.  The day in which this occurred was 12.12.12, a “once-in-a-century event”.  Bartel placed the 911 call at 12:10 AM, only minutes after 12.12.12 began.  The day however, has no holy or religious significance.

The little boy’s mother reportedly ran to a neighbor’s house during the incident begging for help.  She also placed a call to 911, stating that her husband was hurting their son with a knife.  When the police arrived on the scene, they found the terrified boy shirtless and shivering, covered in a substantial amount of blood.  The cuts were not deep enough to require stitches, but will leave scars all the same.  The pentagram carved on the little boy was the size of a basketball, covering the little boy’s entire back.  The little boy was taken to the hospital where he spent 18 hours.  While his physical wounds were not life threatening, the scars this will leave on his mental and emotional health are devastating.  I hope that this little boy has a family that will rally around him and guide him through the healing process.

Only adding to the horror, Bartel smeared some of his son’s blood on the door frame of their home.

PentagramBartel was arrested and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.  He is in the Quad-Cities Jail in North Richland Hills in lieu of $500,000.00 bond.  If Bartel is found guilty, he can face up to 20 years in prison.  Police have stated that Bartel did not appear to be under the influence of any drugs or alcohol when he assaulted his son.  I once again have to mention the fact that while this monster could potentially face up to 20 years in prison, his son is now serving a life sentence with a pentagram carved into his back.  I ask you which you think would be worse, 3 square meals a day with a bed and roof over your head, or a lifetime of explaining to girlfriends and peers why you have a pentagram carved on your back, creating an everyday reminder of the absolute most horrific night of your life.  Really isn’t justice, is it?
