Father 'puts his six-week-old daughter in freezer for an HOUR to stop her crying'
Dailymail ^

Posted on 06/01/2013 10:19:25 PM PDT by chessplayer

In a shocking case of child neglect, a Washington man appeared in court in Tacoma on Tuesday accused of putting his six-week-old daughter in a freezer to stop her crying and then falling asleep.

Pierce County Prosecutor Mark Lindquist told the court that Deutsch fell asleep after putting the child in the freezer on Saturday, then awoke after an hour and was removing the baby when the horrified child’s 22-year-old mother returned.

He’s accused of taking the phone away when the mother tried to call for help from their trailer in Roy, Washington. The mother took the child and got neighbors to call police.

Prosecutors say the child’s core temperature fell to 84 degrees in the 10-degree freezer. She also had a broken arm, a broken leg, blisters on her feet and a head injury.

That is so sad. I know when my kids were little (collicky twins at one point) I said more than once that I was glad that my wife and I were not in our teens or young twenties at the time - and were somewhat mature. And caring. With the “me” attitude of so many, including myself to a certain extent when I was young, it would have been even more difficult raising kids.

The only thing we ever did to our kids to get them to shut up was hold them, check their diapers, feed them, hold them, bounce on the bouncy ball, try feeding them again (WHY won’t they stop crying!!!???)

Usually after an hour with a twin in each arm bouncing on the bouncy ball they would quiet down. Unless you stopped bouncing....

Much to the chagrin of my elderly mother - “Just put them in their cribs and let them cry.”

But enough about me - back to the article. Put the “father” into the freezer for an hour for every six-weeks of his life as punishment - seems reasonable to me.

All of us parents have experienced the nightmare of how a kids crying can drive us crazy, but most of us realize what I have tried to point out to a few couples in my life time, the crying is not directed at you, it isn’t meant to attack you, do not internalize it and start thinking that the noise is meant to assault you, the baby may need or want something, or it may be in discomfort that you can’t detect or stop, or it may be merely trying out things in it’s throat and making noises for it’s new ears, but it is not sending a message at you, it’s just a baby, he isn’t in your head and forcing you to....

Fascinating! Maybe the “blowing bubbles” sound makes them remember the “shshsh-shshsh” sounds of amniotic fluid when they were in the womb?

Nice, creative way to quiet the baby down. “Huh? What’s that?”

Pre 1970s America was not stingy in giving babies drugs and alcohol to quiet them, I can’t remember the name of the drug that was popular for babies.

The sensitivity to that came in the late 1960s forward.

I found it, it was always being pushed on me to give to my son, Paregoric.

From an article “”When my children were little, I and everyone I knew kept a bottle of paregoric in the medicine chest. Paregoric was a wonderful liquid that after a few drops gave instant relief from gas pains caused by milk. It also was used to rub on babies’ gums when they were teething.

I never realized it, but one of paregoric’s ingredients is powdered opium. Until the government stepped in, one could go to the drugstore and buy this magical potion over the counter. It no longer is available in the U.S. because of regulations about the use of unapproved drugs.””

This jackass was Jeannine Pirro’s “Creep of the Week” tonight on her show.

She did not mince around with weasel words like “alleged”. She just saud that she hoped that they would throw him into the darkest, coldes hole theycould find in the Washington State prison system after he was tried and convicted.

She was HOT under the collar.

I don’t see “wife” or “husband” anywhere in the linked article.

I can’t help but wonder, even though he was the father of the child and living with the child’s mother, if the child would have been safer with her father had she been conceived in wedlock.

Where I live, we have reports of married parents doing stupid, evil things to their children. Maybe statistically, a married couple would be less likely to do such things, but I don't know that being married guarantees a stable, loving, non-abusive home life.

This guy looks like a druggie, a drunk or both. Where you have abuses of controlled substances, you could most be assured that any children are neglected or abused. The drugs or the drinks become far more important than the babies.

Never so much as then did I realize how much that my little girl relied on me. It made us closer, not farther apart. She was the first, but that remained.

It is only those who think only of themselves who could put their inconvenience ahead of their baby's pain.

a broken arm, a broken leg, blisters on her feet and a head injury.

Being in the freezer did not give her those injuries.

Very poorly written article. Most British newspaper writers can still write intelligibly, but apparently the rot is spreading even to UK.

They were talking about this on local radio the other day and I couldn’t believe it - made me sick. It is totally disgusting. Mark Linquist is a very good prosecutor and I am fairly sure he’ll see this animal gets whats coming to him.

The other day they said they had stabilized the baby but, at least at that point, they weren’t sure if there would be any permanent damage of any kind. Prayers up for the little angel.

Paregoric, or camphorated tincture of opium, also known as tinctura opii camphorata, is a medication known for its antidiarrheal, antitussive, and analgesic properties.

Our family doctor prescribed paregoric when I was maybe 9 or 10 — I used to get bad tummy upsets, esp. when I was nervous about something, and it calmed me right down. Later on, when I found out what was in it, I realized why it was so effective. And they gave it to infants? yikes!

As to the story, this disgusting creep needs to be put away for a long, cold, scary time. And “mom” needs some serious follow-up too.

My first born would only calm down by being in some sort of motion. A ride in the car worked wonders but I often had him in my arms while I ran the riding mower or set him on the washer or dryer as we did laundry. We called his baby swing the, “neglect-o-matic” as it gave us some down time.
I too thank heaven for giving me our kids well into our thirties as we were much calmer parents than the twenty-somethings we knew.

Not true, it's just not OTC anymore. You must have a prescription.

I’m going to ask my mother whether I was ever given paregoric. It just goes to show that God-given remedies - if used in moderation and with a degree of common sense - should be available to the public.
