Foul. What is wrong with people?

Beating a one year old?

It's obscene.

It amazes me what an angry wife will do. She should be done for reporting a false crime.

You should see what angry husbands do.

Some beat kids and wives.

Some blame the wives for their own shortcomings.

Not again?? I hate these stories.

And the first two people have jumped to the conclusion that the man is guilty

So you thought you'd even it up a bit, by blaming the woman.

Uh huh.

Why would she report it to the police, though?

Police who were on scene know more about this case than anyone here. If they decided to arrest the father based on their on scene assessment, I think we can trust their decision to do do. The fact that the mother made the call to police would seem to indicate she did so to save her child’s life.

Bringing the mother in for questioning is more likely to determine the level of ongoing abuse in this home, as well as to determine if authorities can safely release the infant back to its mother, who is likely in a co-dependent situation.

Poor kid, there is NOTHING worse than a child abuse, these helpless little ones sometimes get stock with parents that they have NO choice but to put up with them until their time comes, then i hope they give it all back to their parents, Good Or Bad.

These violence are so familial in Japan. If it's not parents to young kids, it's grown adults to their aging parents. It's all too common here.

And what justification is there for this? This is abuse and it's inexcusable.

@ James "It amazes me what an angry wife will do. She should be done for reporting a false crime". I agree good twist on the logic if readers would stop believing what they read and think and then post perhaps they can see a different side to the reporting as you did. We the readers do not live with the family we the readers assume the father was guilty, perhaps she could be an angry wife and reported the father. The ONLY reason I could ASSUME the police were talking to the parents is to get both sides of the story. As you "the article doesn't say how the father has plead at all. Innocent till proven guilty?

People are going crazy. COVID and unemployed. We need to separate until emotions cool. COVID is not going away anytime soon. Stress levels are out of control with some families with children. No money. No way to counter the money factor.

The only reason I said:

It amazes me what an angry wife will do. She should be done for reporting a false crime.

Was because the article says  questioning both parents

And the first two people have jumped to the conclusion that the man is guilty just because his wife said he did it. However the article doesn't say how the father has plead at all. Innocent till proven guilty?
