Does anyone even bother to think the father is innocent?

We at Miranda Joy Foundation wish we never had to read articles like this. Our foundation tries to educate the public on the dangers of Shaken Baby Syndrome, what to watch for and how to prevent it. I hope anyone that reads this understands that babies are fragile and Dr. Dias knows what shaking a baby can do. He watched Miranda Joy die after living 11 days at Hershey. We only wish we could get to every parent, caregiver, day care worker and stop any more trials like this one. You can get more information about Miranda Joy and SBS on our website:

wondering - no we don't bother. The doctor has studied many years to be able to analyze the factors and determine the truth. Furthermore, anyone that has a baby can figure it out too. I personally stressed over just dressing my first baby and worried I'd somehow hurt her and was told in the hospital and by our family doctor that babies are tough (in a sense) and I was not going to hurt her. In my opinion, you have to be pretty careless or just an idiot to hurt a baby. If you are truly caring for your baby, you aren't going to cause injury. I burped two babies who have grown into wonderful little toddlers now - neither of which have suffered injuries because of burping!

Of course you don't bother to wonder. You're too closed minded to even consider that the paper or the doctor might be wrong. What about the other experts that weren't allowed to testify? They may have been able to prove otherwise.

Think about it, the baby is ALONE with the FATHER when the injuries took place, he admitted to "probably writing the confession note" as well as admitted to planning suicide. Anyone who is "suicidal" shouldn't be caring for a baby alone anyway and saying he wanted the mother to have the kids in case he "wasn't around".....meaning after he commits suicide is also bogus because why would they take the children from her........for what he did?? He wants to committ suicide because he knows he is guilty and would rather be dead then go to jail like he WILL. Not too hard to figure out and just for the record, I'm as open minded as they come . How much more evidence do YOU need ?? I've got ALL I need just from the stories already printed, most importantly this one.
