A 39 year old bad dad allegedly threw his 5 week old baby girl into her cot as hard as he could. The poor little baby, who has a twin, is now in a critical condition in Redcliffe hospital, fighting for her life.
Bad dad appeared in Brisbane Magistrates Court on Thursday, facing one count of grievous bodily harm, and where he successfully applied for bail (wtf?!). The court heard that Bad Dad threw the little baby into her cot as hard as he could, after becoming enraged at her crying. Of course he did. It’s the oldest excuse in the book. How hard is it to simply place the baby in her cot, shut the door and go and watch TV or have a beer (but not too many) while baby settles herself? Provided that baby has had something to eat, a clean nappy and a cuddle. I’m child-free and I know never to hurt a baby.
As part of his bail conditions, Bad Dad will have to go live with his sister on the Gold Coast and is to have no contact with either of his babies. If I were the sister, I’d be thinking twice about letting a violent and immature dickhead live with me. Especially if she has young children.
Bad Dad will reappear in court on July 2. Hopefully we can get names and a better picture, and the real shaming can begin!
