If this isn't a case of abuse, then it's a case of neglect. Either way the
father should be monitored when around his child. How do I know? From personal
experience. This exact thing happened to me. And take my word for it. If nothing
is done about this, the father will continue to escalate his abuse of the child.
This must be related to a custody dispute where the mother is wanting full
custody and wanting the father to look bad. More wasted tax dollars I'm afraid.
There is a big difference in abuse & an accident.
And why was the child taken to the police BEFORE seeing a doctor?!!
