This is sick! I bet that nothing of a man wasn't even the father! What kind of woman, what kind of MOTHER would let that happen to her child! I'm 21 with 2 kids.. 3 and 1, and I've had my moments of getting frustrated but NEVER have I ever had thoughts of beating my child so severely! I hope they both get what they deserve, and that those kids go somewhere they are treated well! I'll be praying for them all!

There is a fine line between discipline and beating. Perhaps the weed "clouded" their judgement. I don't see where a physician is in any place to be pouring out punishment advice. They have psychologists and counselors trained for that. Just because you've earned a doctorate in medicine doesn't make you a behavoral specialist. Incidents like this will keep occuring as long as people procreate. Its amusing that you have to have a license to have a monkey, but anyone can crank out babies. Perhaps there needs to be a mandatory class for parents similar to the "communication classes" that are court ordered for divorces.

Now now..that pair look like simply outstanding pillars of the community. Hate to judge by appearance...no I don't...these trash bags look like shi* and ought to be taken to town square and flogged until unconscience...like all child abusers. What do you liberals want? Give them a "time out"? It was Bushs fault? Reagan? Your messiah can come back to Indiana and bless them...all would be fine again.

Bet the children are returned within a short period of time to the mother. This happens all the time. Sad situation.

They are out on bail, the girls are in foster care "Right Now" that part worries me. Will we next year this time be sobbing, Poor little girl this shouldn't have happened as we post " rest in peace baby gitl," Something to think about. I'm so sick at my tummy after reading this....Drugs what are they good for absolutely nothing,well except pain suffering.

What makes me sick is the fact they've been doing this since the three year old was one. WHO beats their one year old? and what on earth could you possibly punish them for? getting foodon their face?! Come on people. These children need to be removed from their current home, or the sad truth is one day they will probably end up dead.

These kind of things make me so angry. Why do these women let a boyfriend come in their lives and have control of their children. Some women are weak. I hope they get alot of time in jail.

Punishment for the parents should be the same punishment they used on the baby. Such crazy people.Please do not just slap them on the wrist and send the little girl home for more abuse.Apparently the smokes are more important to them than the child.

Its the most horrifying thing you could think of. Shame on them... How could anyone leave a bruise on thier child for a punishment. I hope they aren't allowed to have them back. To many people out there are praying everyday for a precious child and these people treated thiers like trash. Hope the state fins the girls a real home.

We keep hearing the lie that marijuana is a "safe" drug.

Anything that might be used as an "excuse" for behavioral problems is not safe.

One might wonder how these two adults were raised, and what values they were taught?

I really don't understand how someone can hurt a child! I say an "eye for an eye", let me have a few minutes with these scum bags!!

I am sad for that child. But I am interested to hear about the 30 cases per month recognized by Dr Demetrias. How many are justified cases? And how many has Dr created to receive $800,000. grant from Lilly to fund her child abuse task force at St V's she began.
I believe you should do an audit of the cases she has reported past 2 years!!!
