Footage made available to the media yesterday shows the moment a mother throws her baby down on a concrete sidewalk. Does anyone really NEED to see that?
Momlogic's Momstrosity: There is so much bad news out there. Yesterday that pediatrician was charged with molesting more than 400 children, and this morning I found out that a video has been released of a woman hurling her own child to the ground. (Luckily, the baby was not seriously injured.) The video starts with the warning, "Disturbing images may cause distress."
Apparently it has also caused much legal wrangling in the Austrailan province where the incident took place. The footage was originally suppressed by a judge, but that ban was lifted.
Can you even watch this video? Of course, the people involved in this woman's trial need to view it, but as a mom I can't bear to press play-- but one of my co-workers, a mom of two, had no problem watching. Do you think that once you have kids of your own, footage like this is more difficult to watch?
