    She was incredibly nonchalant. Other than seeming a little annoyed, she didn't show an ounce of emotion. Not even fear that someone might walk in and catch her. Unbelievable!

    I have to wonder what this mother's intent was. Was she trying to kill the child or was she trying to gain attention by the child being in more distress? I'm so relieved that this was caught. That God for video cameras in hospitals.

    Just a note. The comments under the video are vile. Try to ignore them, please. Here's an article with more details. It does indeed sound like she just wanted the baby gone.

    Thank heaven the little guy is in a foster home, instead of dead.

    Note: Steel yourself to read her attorney's argument.

    Now that was nauseating. WHY don't these mothers, especially very young ones, explore adoption? There are so many wonderful people out there who would give a child fabulous, loving families.

    OMG! Is it just me or does anyone else feel the hospital was complicit? They suspected the "mother" was abusing the child, installed video and she was still able to smother the child! WTH? That baby deserved to be protected 24/7

    that is how hospitals catch Münchausen syndrome. Then they can say there is nothing edically wronng with the baby - just remove the mother.

    notice the worker walked in so it didn't go to far

    With all due respect, 20 seconds plus 1 minute 14 seconds is 1 minute and 34 seconds of inhibited breathing. I can see setting the cameras up to catch her in the act if they already suspected that this is what was going on, but they had her after the first time, and the child was only subjected to 20 seconds of asphyxia. They then allowed the child to undergo another 1 minute and 14 seconds of this before they stopped it...If you ask me, it went way too far.
    JMO. Unless there's a link, I can't prove it.

    OMG this poor baby, I couldn't help but cry when I watched this! I wish I could gather up all the unwanted, abused, neglected children and keep them safe.

    How terrible.

    Who do you call after you've just smothered your baby?

    she was just so nonchalant about it, at one point resting her own head on her hand, waiting for him to stop moving..........horrible!

    Defense attorney David Jones argued Scott did not cause any serious injuries to her son.

    "She had no business having a baby at her age," he told the courtroom. "But what were the injuries? You didn't hear of any injuries."

    Oh my... Something tells me if David Jones Esq were smothered until he had to be resuscitated, he would feel differently...
