Folks, this one cuts very close to home and hurts terribly. I know of this young man just peripherally through one of my sons. He lives in the next town north. You can find him on MS easily. Study the photos carefully. I don't see ANY red flags at all. This young man looks very much like a devoted boyfriend and proud father. I know he has a support system. If you look at the photos in front of the fountain and by the creek, that's only a couple blocks from my house. Smack dab in the middle of a town which is totally child focused and filled with services for the asking. Looking at the photos just kill me as this could be one of my lovely boys. How did he end up hurting his baby girl so terribly? How? http://www.mailtribune.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20100210/NEWS/2100314 Critically injured Medford infant is sent to Portland The child's father is charged with second-degree assault and first-degree criminal mistreatment Medford baby is in critical condition in a Portland hospital and her teenage father is in Jackson County Jail, suspected of causing her injuries. Tyler Alexander Jackson, 18, was arrested Monday on charges of second-degree assault and first-degree criminal mistreatment hours after emergency help was requested for a 9-week-old infant who had stopped breathing. "Thee 9-1-1 call for help came from a home in the 400 block of Marie Street at about 11:45 p.m. Sunday, said Medford police Lt. Bob Hansen. Hansen said police were first to arrive at the home and focused on getting the child medical attention. But as they approached the house, two pit bulls came at them. One officer distracted the family's dogs, allowing the other officer to run into the home, grab the baby girl from Jackson's arms and race to a waiting ambulance, said Hansen. "We call that a 'scoop and run,' " said Hansen, adding that the move is standard police procedure designed to get an unconscious child medical attention as quickly as possible."
