Police in California charged an 18-year-old man who allegedly bit his infant son's nose off.
Doctors determined the one-month-old baby suffered a skull fracture and a brain hemorrhage, and that one-third of his nose had been severed, according to the police department in Fairfield, about 80 km northeast of San Francisco.
The baby boy was in stable condition Thursday.
Police said the infant's 17-year-old mother, who was not identified, was "hysterical" when she called to report her boy was bleeding from his nose.
Police allege the father bit his son's nose out of frustration from the infant's crying. They are still investigating how the other injuries occurred.
Joshua Cooper is charged with child cruelty and aggravated mayhem.

Thought not.

Sometimes we can come across a random thought written and posted that, in the context of the OP, can be somewhat startling for those that read it. When I read even a thread title like this one, it kind of kicks me in the gut and so does perhaps casual, flippant commentary therein. (More the first post I replied to, to be honest.)

No offense intended.

Locutus, you should know by now. You have to let me in on the plans.

Yeah, it's F...ing bullsh*t. Wonder what the chances are of drugs somehow being involved! He needs to be thumped upside the head with a piece of pipe!


Ooooh another opinion that doesn't coincide with yours! Send me a list so I'll know to tread gently!

Why would you want to point out my stupidity for all to see? Feeling a little inadequate? -

and I've supplied you with links showing otherwise.....and I was a child 50 years ago, I remember also. So was my wife. Both of us were sexually abused. So no, it was no safer back then, than it is now. I would say less safe, as people were less likely to report to the police.

But, that's fine, you continue to live in your world where there was no drug abuse, alcohol abuse, pedophiles, child abuse, rape, sexual assault, physical assault. Where every where was rainbows and daffodils.

You constantly post how things like child abuse, rape, and pedophilia are so much worse now than "back in the good ole days". Yet stats prove otherwise.

OK, you win this round Gerry and I agree with that statement. But I still think the abuse is getting more bizarre, not that any of it was ever good. Also my statement wasn't just confined to abuse and sexual deviants but to the entire gamut of sh*t that goes on these days.

The reasons it may appear to be more common is that today we are connected to so much information.

Had this talk quite a few years back with my mother.

When family sexual abuse began to surface she would not believe it. Categorically denied anyone could do such a thing to their own child or relative. I believe part of the reason for that was because the neighbourhood where she grew up all had extended families. Her grandmother lived upstairs and two uncles shared part of the house. Seldom would a kid be alone for long with any one adult.

She did finally concede that yes, it did happen and people weren't just making this stuff up.

It's funny too because it was a much harsher time back then when she grew up. Her mother was widowed at 28 and struggled to raise three young girls alone for a time when her husband died in the war... they were often hungry but yet she had amazingly good memories of growing up.

I don't know JLM...adversity can build one up or knock one down. With a child particularly it can depend upon the adults around them and what they tell the child about the circumstance and how they teach the child to cope. That doesn't happen in a vacuum. Also from a gene pool perspective we are not all created equally.

The same gene pool and circumstance may yield a psychopath or a saint.
