Yes I wasn't looking at it from the underage angle and that makes sense.

I'm sure your 15 year olds and most 15 year olds know hurting a baby is wrong. I am not saying it is excusable, I'm not saying that the baby is not the victim. I have read the article, I agree wholeheartedly with it. However, I have also worked with extremely disadvantaged youths. I have seen total destruction in children that should never have ever been allowed to happen. I have seen that destruction be carried on by those who should have been protected.
To compare a well adjusted teen with one who has been neglected and abused is like comparing apples and jack hammers.
We can judge all we want, it achieves nothing. Get out into your community and do something. Campaign for better mental health services. Foster a child so they don't spend their childhood living in a home thinking the world hates them. Donate time or money to youth programs. Volunteer at a homeless shelter or food van. Just do something. It may change your view on how 'judging a monster' is so pointless when said monster is a child.

Yes these kids have shocking lives. But at 15 they know right from wrong.

I feel sorry for all involved, including the father. I hate hearing stories like this and I'm so sorry he wasn't helped earlier so this wouldn't happen. (I'm not making excuses for this behaviour at all it was disgusting, just feel sorry that he too had a troubled past, imagine being abandoned by your own mother)
I'm hoping he just accidentally dropped the baby ( leg and head injuries) but I think that's just wishful thinking.

This is the main bit I meant:
And because of the issue of the age and the decision making the mother (because quite frankly the baby has no father just a sperm donor) was not of age to make the decisions required.
I am assuming dcp were distancing themselves from the care giving side of things of the baby and allowing the baby's parents the freedom to be parents. Even though the disgrace to human existence in question was restricted to visiting hours only.
