    This poor excuse for a man… Needs to be beaten like he did to that poor innocent angel. I think this world has gone mad.

    A three month old child? Was the kid supposed to learn anything from this beating?
    This guy sounds dangerous and has no business near a child of any age. I hope the infant pulls through, heals well and never has to see his "dad" again..!
