WARNING THIS CONTAINS CHILD ABUSE !!


One of my "friends" just commented how disgusting this video is and so it comes u on my news feed.

It is of a woman ( an I use the term loosely) beating her baby up. First she hits it with pillows, then she smacks it in the head with her hand - then she throws things .. it kept going but thats where I stopped watching.

What is worse is that there are others there watching and someone filming the damn thing.

i have reported it to facebook but I want to find her and get that baby away from her.

Any ideas? Maybe approach some news places or something? I dont know what country its in or anything but im heart broken and angry !

I'm not on facebook .... but maybe you could contact the police - like the AFP? They might have ways of working out what country it's in.

Made me sick to my stomach.

I'm pretty sure this is an old video and she was charged?

I have seen it too  sad.gif I reported it, but it's obviously still getting around.  I don't know if there is much that can be done, and how could you know how old it is etc?  It's seriously disturbing though, that poor baby sad.gif

This is an old video and the woman was charged and the baby was given to her sister. The sister filmed it because she had gone to the police numerous times but said their was nothing they could do because the baby had no bruises (I'm not sure how that happened) and they needed solid proof so she video taped her sister so she would be brought to justice.

When I watched it, I couldn't make it through. The idea of somebody hurting a defenseless baby makes me sick.

Why do people pass videos like that on? I have no interest in watching it but it wouldn't go viral unless a lot of people did want to.

That disturbs me more than the content.

Just confirming that I have reviewed both links in this thread and neither show the video/images as they have been removed by FB & You Tube.

The video was over a year old and the mother in question is currently in jail for her crimes.

I know that people were linking to the videos with the best intentions of getting rid of it but EB really isn't the place for links like this to be shared at all.

Thanks
