$5,000? They let this jerk back out again? This baby will be lucky to survive albeit with brain trauma. He admitted to shaking the baby. The hospital staff sees that this was not just a fall off a bed. What more do they need? Keep him locked up and away from everyone until his trial. You don't think he will try and contact the mom after she turned him in??? Good luck with that.

Not to worry. He will not see the light of day for at least 15 years. By that time, the general inmate population will have initiated him.

Someone should make sure that the other inmates know what he did. I hear they frown on that sort of thing.

A two month-old eh? I recall when I had my son we had to watch the "Don't shake your baby" video - obviously it is a common parenting problem because parents of two-month old babies haven't had sleep for two months. What he needed was a break so he wouldn't lose his mind and temper at an incessantly crying baby but now it's too late for the both of them.

Yes this is tragic, and I wish the baby well. But the overall problem is that at least 50% or more of the people that have babies should not in my opinion have them.
