Headline on CNN this morning from Somerset, PA

http://www.cnn.com/

Police: Dad shocked baby with cattle prod (video accompanies)

This baby ended up with a broken leg, broken arm, skull fractures, and other injuries. Makes me wish this country operated under the "eye for an eye" principle of justice. I will never understand how someone can do this to a helpless and defenseless infant (or anyone else for that matter).




Those who danced were thought quite insane by those who could not hear the music.

There's a video of it? I don't want to watch it.

You know, I wouldn't click that link, either. But it might just be a video about the attack, not of it.

What's strange is that searching CNN now doesn't turn up the item in question. In fact, Google News turns up only 13 articles on this incident, none of them from CNN. UPI isn't offering video, so I would guess that CNN's video wasn't of any assault.

I find it very unlikely that there is a video of a baby being shocked by a cattleprod....

Were you just being facetious in suggesting there was? Because it was pretty obvious to me that the (video accompanies) meant that there was video of some reporter reporting on the incident.
