Four Corners Creep Of The Week: Michael Anthony Douglas

**NOTE: **This entry is edited to note that the child victim is 21 days old, NOT 21 months old. Thanks again to Kathy for catching my error!

Well, by the looks of the poll, I think that most people would agree that Michelle Tufts is pretty creepy.

Let's move on to this week's alleged creep. His name is Michael Anthony Douglas, 23, of Colorado Springs, CO. He's accused of smacking his 21 day-old baby on the side of his head and causing injuries. The child is in critical condition, according to this article at the Rocky Mountain News website.

Just as a personal note, I'm getting a little tired of hearing about these creeps that hit and beat babies because they cry. That's how babies- who have no other way of communicating-tell you that they need something, or something is wrong. It's up to you to figure out what that is most of the time. If you can't figure out what to do then you need to do one of two things: Either hold and comfort the baby until they stop crying, or if you feel yourself breaking down, put the baby in a safe place, such as their crib, leave the room, have someone else take him or her---whatever you have to do, other than hitting the child or putting them in another unsafe situation. Stop beating on defenseless little babies that have no communication skills. Jerks.
