"People are trying to make a big deal about it..."

Thus spake Deangelo Troop, the man whose girlfriend used their baby as a weapon to beat him.

The baby suffered a fractured skull and a brain bleed, and there the father is saying it's not a big deal. It wasn't that the mother intended to pick up the baby and use him as a truncheon. She was just so drunk that she didn't realize that what she was pelting the man with was her baby.

I'm sorry, but being so wasted that you mistake your baby for an inanimate object is every bit as problematic as deliberately using the baby as a billy club. And the man is just as appalling for thinking it's no big deal.

This woman has five kids, including the battered baby. All five need to be placed in an adoptive home where their mother and that man (the father of two of them) can never, never get close to them again.

And neither of these moral imbeciles should be turned loose on the streets again unless their reproductive organs are taken out and run down a garbage disposal. If you don't know it's wrong to be drunk off your skull when you're caring for children, you have no sense of right or wrong in the first place. And you're certainly unfit to be a parent.
