We need more people like this in the world!

Hope the ones who abused the boy, leaving him disabled, are paying for their crime.

Shaken Baby Syndrome.
I guess there must be a pretentious name for multiple gunshot wounds, too. Biggiesmallpox, or something like that.

alexanderplatz: What is pretentious about the name shaken baby syndrome?


The word "syndrome"

It's grievous bodily harm. It's like calling long term nerve damage in the fingers from a deep laceration "knife syndrome" or brain damage due to being kicked in the head by a horse "Mr Ed Syndrome"

I'm submitting a formal request from now on that anyone who is shot be diagnosed with "Biggiesmallpox" It's on like Donkey Kong.

You might want to learn what "syndrome" means before you get riled up about it.

Of course the act of shaking the baby results in grievous bodily harm, but it's not just randomly grievous bodily harm such as might be suffered when a child falls down the stairs or whatever it is that the abuser is claiming. The word syndrome gets it name from syn- [together] and dromos [running]. Shaking a baby produces consistent injuries: subdural hematoma, retinal hemorrhage, and cerebral edema. From this presentation the shaking can be accurately inferred.  Doctors aren't minimizing the violent act. By clarifying the consistent pathology seen in a shaken baby they can document the injuries and assign a diagnosis, and the medical report can help put the bastard away that shook the baby. Consider that the infant cannot testify to authorities that it was shaken. In short, the name shaken baby syndrome is direct and to the point: it's the clinical signs that are found together when a baby has been violently shaken.

One of my coworkers takes care of a nice who was shaken by the mother's boyfriend. The kid's just devastated. Not much moral difference than murder if you ask me. Her heart might be beating and her lungs are breathing, but her life was taken away from her.

i'm not defending abuse of any sort or to any age. meanwhile i've heard some tough stories of infants that cry for months, require intense monitoring/attention due to illness or handicap, etcetera. you can put just so many bricks on a llamas back before it snaps, everyone has their limit. not everyone has the stuff to be a caretaker or we'd all be ambulance attendants, doctors, nurses, animal shelter volunteers etcetera. again - i'm not defending abuse. i'm just saying not everyone should be around children or animals. IMHO most so called parents are not qualified to be parents. too many parents are all messed up to begin with. too many babies are made thanks to the joys of alcohol.

During my pediatric clinical rotation, I had a wonderful young lady as one of my patients. She had some developmental issues and didn't have use of a lot of her body. I wondered about her mother and thought that parental age may have been a factor in her problems. While interviewing the family I discovered that her parents had adopted her and her older sibling who had similar problems (with full knowledge of what they were getting into). Knowing what they had to do for them every day makes me want to nominate them for sainthood.

I would strongly consider abortion if I found out my future child was going to have profound problems, and I don't think I'd consider adopting a very needy child. I am in awe of these people.

A couple that were good friends with my grandparents were foster parents for innumerable "problem kids" over the decades. Mental disabilities, physical disabilities, medical problems, emotional/behavioral cases. If there was a tough case in the county, this couple was their first stop.

I'm pretty Spartan with regard to badly disabled children, but that Shake Baby Syndrome makes me feel rather in favor of handing out a capital murder level charge.

Man, these Christian folks sure undo a lot of the damage the others do in the name of God.


I consider myself loosely christian and can't stand them but these guys are awesome. I usually hate christians but as long as they can keep the gay hating in their pants it's all right.

My, you're a patient man. Do you also devote your time to trying to explain calculus to lampposts?
Because that's about the equivalent of what you're doing now.

There must be a monetary gain for the "hero" couple. Follow the money trail, and you'll see the real reason for the season.

I agree . If these people are in it to make money they will not even make minimum wages . I'm also pretty sure they are using money from their own pocket .

Oh yeah, we're getting rich on $13.00 a day, when baby sitting costs around $10.00 an hour, and that's only for the low maintenance kids.

The reasons we got involved are as follows: I can't have kids, I can't tell someone to not have an abortion unless I'm willing to offer a viable alternative, my beliefs tell me to care for the least, the last, and the lost, and finally, I like testifying in court and putting away the scum that would hurt a kid. I can't be an effective advocate unless I can fully document and that means being around 24/7. You want to lose your self control and hit somebody? Fine, pick on somebody your own size. I'm over 5'7", and weigh over 150 lbs., take your best shot. Leave the snot nosed little ones alone, you scum.

As for the couple in the article, nothing but good thoughts for them.

I know anyone carrying a gun and wearing camouflage is a "hero" regardless of their desk job, but after hearing about those teachers, those unarmed teachers taking bullets for other people's children I have added them to the top of the hero list.

The cynic could go through life the way you are..oblivious to all of the positives and only focusing on the negatives.

The optimist (of which I am not) could point out God instilled a sense of being into this couple that made them stronger and happier for raising kids you and I would not fathom doing. I'm not half the man this dad is, and I can say with certainty your shiat stinks pretty bad in the morning too.

Am I religious? No...but the only thing more detrimental to society than a far right wing nut, would be someone such as yourself you can't see in the mirror that you're just as hateful and spiteful.

That makes you, quite frankly...a pathetic piece of shiat that is wasting my oxygen.

It all depends on how much they want to spend on raising them. 3 cans of Showboat Pork n Beans, a bag of hot rolls, and some water should feed them for a week for about $10. The medical is taken care of by the state. The rest, profit.
