    OK, HOW SO U KNOW IT WAS THE PARENT. IT COULD HAVE BEEN THE BABY SITTER OR IN OTHER CASE, MAYBE A SORRY BOY FRIEND TO THE MOTHER. I HAVE SEEN CASES WHERE THE PARENT WENT TO THE STORE AND LEFT THE BABY WITH A BOY FRIEND WHO THEY THOUGHT THEY COULD TRUST, AND COME BACK TO THERE CHILD HURT. YOU CAN NEVER TRUST NO BODY WITH YOUR BABY'S NOW DAYS. IN SOME CASES, EVEN FAMILY MEMBERS. I HOPE THAT THIS LIL BOY WILL BE OK. GOD PLEASE LOOK OVER HIM AND THE PARENTS. IF THEY DID'T DO IT MAY THE ONE WHO DID PULL HARD TIME!!! ALTHOUGH, MOST OF THE TIME THEY ONLY GET 5 MONTHS IN JAIL AND 2 YEARS PROBATION. ONCE AGAIN THE JUSTICE SYSTEM IS NOT WORTH NOTHING!!!

    TO CINDI..Get a life,then get a clue..Who cares what your opinion is..Stick to the story.Its a baby that obviously been abused and all you have to talk about is,your experiences at your former job..GET REAL..Everytime I get on WITN website,you always on every site,making racist comments.VIEWERS GO TO RICHARDSON OR MICHAEL JACKSON SITE,that WITN POSTED and view to make your own decision.I'm a 29 year black woman of 2 beautiful kids.(8 year old and 6 month old) And my heart almost drop,everytime I hear or read about a child being hurt..I tried for 6 years,to have another child and was unsuccessful.Until about a year in a half ago.So,for you to say something like that,I'm very offended..I hope whomever done this,be brought to justice.It seems more and more everyday,that some of that ones that can I have kids,don't even want them.They do such things like this to them.Just give them to loving homes because its alot of people out here that want a child and can't have any.

    Boy, is this article sad. I myself, don't have children, but I hope the child recovers. Cindi didn't say anything wrong in my opinion; she was just telling ya'll about her WORK EXPERIENCES! I'm not offended!!

    after this child (of whatever race, seriously it doesnt matter AT ALL) 'recovers' from life threatening injuries, how long will they be afflicted by brain damage and the mental issues that go along with abuse and being thrown into foster care for the next 18yrs? how many people in this world wish their child was born NORMAL and while reckless parents damage theirs on purpose! its not fair!

    Cindi, race should not even be brought up in this discussion. People of all races abuse... People like you with that mind set is the reason there is always turmoil between races. I am of white origin and offended by your offensive statement. If you think it, keep it to yourself.

    Cindi, unless I read the wrong article, I didn,t see where it stated whether the child was black, white, green, purple, or blue. Why do color have to play a part in this? It does not matter what color the child is. The child may have been abused and your heart should go out to the child. You should really keep comments like that to yourself.

    Cindi, what is of black orgin? Are you saying 99% of these babies was black babies? I'm just asking I want to know.

    When I worked the Funeral Industry,I could not believe just how many babies Nash County had that died in Utero and stillborns.I have picked up so many that we had a "contract" for removals.99% of the removals were of black origin.Many of the mothers were put in prison for drugs during pregnancy among other things.So very sad.

    I as a mother of one could never even think about abusing my child. My son didnt ask to be brought into this world, but he is here, and he expects me and my husband as his parents to protect him from the hurt and abuse, not do it to him. I cant stand hearing of things like this. Makes me hold my son in my arms and want to never let him go!
