What the hell was this guy thinking when he treated somebody else’s child this way?

The man, Sgt. Bryan Starr, who is 35-years-old, and should know better, was driving around at night, in a storm, with his girlfriend’s “loud” 5-year-old son.


Starr was apparently so annoyed by the “unruly” child, that he pulled over in a parking lot and kicked the child out of the car.

It no time flat, the poor child was killed by an oncoming car.

My God.

An Alabama soldier was charged with reckless murder after allegedly forcing his girlfriend’s unruly 5-year-old son to get out of a car at night along a road where the boy was hit and killed by another vehicle, authorities said.

Army Sgt. Bryan Starr, 35, surrendered to officials in Russell County after being charged in the death of Austin Birdseye, Sheriff Heath Taylor told a news conference Monday.

Originally from Illinois, Starr is stationed at Fort Benning in Columbus, Georgia, the sheriff said. He and the child’s mother, Christina Birdseye, 33, share a home in southeast Alabama near the sprawling base.

Court records were not available Tuesday to show whether Starr had an attorney who could speak on his behalf.

Starr told investigators the boy began acting up in the car as they traveled on Alabama 165 near their home Sunday night, so he pulled his Dodge Charger into a church parking lot and made the boy get out in the rain, Taylor said. The child’s mother was not in the vehicle, he said.

The man lost sight of the child but soon saw cars stopped in the road, where the boy had been struck by an oncoming Toyota Avalon. The road was dark and the boy was hard to see, and the driver of the Toyota was not at fault, Taylor said.

“We have their information and we’ve spoken to them, and will speak to them again. But at this point, there’s no indication that they had any chance of not hitting the little guy,” Taylor said, the Ledger-Enquirer reported.

The child died at a hospital in Columbus, and Starr was charged with murder because he showed reckless disregard for the child’s safety, Taylor said.

Can you imagine how the people feel who hit that poor little boy?


Their lives will never be the same, knowing they killed a 5-year-old, even though it wasn’t their fault….they will live with that horror for the rest of their lives.

And all that stupid, foolish man had to do to avoid this tragedy and crime, was use some common sense and human decency.

He has neither…

I hope they throw the book at him.
