At the same time, I don't know what else to say. Just throwing all of your frustration on a small child over a video game is pure immaturity. Humans are capable of holding in their anger or managing it through their mind.
He just had a weak mind and immediately reacted on it. That's how humanity just kill kill kill... They just don't think.
How is violently shaking an 18 day old baby and hitting it against the head accidental? That's like shooting at an innocent bystander in a fit of rage and saying: "Well I didn't mean to kill him. I just wanted him to shut up."
I can't say anything about the head-hitting, but I do know that a surprising amount of people are unaware that shaking a baby can cause death. I'm not justifying what he did, but I say that counseling of some sort would be nice. I'm pretty sure that his problems go past "ZOMG MURDER BABIES."
Everyone's gotten pissed off at a game. That, plus having to put up with a baby constantly yelling (and I can understand how annoying that is), and I think I can understand his actions entirely.
Being able to understand why a person commited an act doesn't excuse it, and being able to see the reasoning behind an act doesn't make the act reasonable (I don't know if that makes sense but you know what I mean).
But yeah, I'm not getting the bloodlust that other people in this thread are either. I agree that rehabilitation is a good idea. It does seem like he did just crack under annoying conditions and react poorly (albeit extremely poorly), and it's really just a tragedy for everyone involved.
He should be punished, though. We need to not only provide a deterant against such carelessness, but educate others about the fact that applying such force to a young child can be fatal, and that negligence of that sort will be punished.

That is just insane! Some people just go over the lie or probably don't even have one. I mean i know some people are lame enough to think that video games are more important than a baby. But shaking the baby so the crying stops is not going to help.

Shaking a baby damages so much than you can imagine. The rib cage is still extremely soft so the vital organs like the heart, stomach, liver and lungs will be easily bruised and could get damaged to the point that they stop functioning.
The bones in it's socket can get damaged and the brain could slam against the skull as everything is still young and undeveloped.
Its disgusting. He should know better... FAR more better.
He was probably playing GTA, and it was definitely the game's fault. It corrupted his mind and made him capable of killing a baby. Violent Video games should be banned.
Are you really Hilary Clinton? I think you are. I do.
Do videogames desensitize people to violence? Yes. Do they directly cause more violence? Well, thats hard to prove. Trick is to ask the right question.
But still, the man is a dumbass if shaking and punching a baby would shut it up in his mind. Sure, but by death. Didnt get to read the article, by the way, its blocked for me (at school -.-). Can I get some copypasta?
You yankin' my nuts? I did read it. And it's...I can't even think of a word in the human language. That's sickening. Especially because I'm not thinking baby. I'm thinking infant. Because it was an infant. He's an ass face.
