A man was arrested Thursday after police say he bit off his 1-month-old son's nose in Fairfield out of frustration over his crying.

Joshua Cooper, 18, was booked at Solano County Jail on suspicion of child cruelty and aggravated mayhem.

The incident was reported shortly after 8 a.m. when a "hysterical" 17-year-old girl called police, saying her son was bleeding from his nose, said Fairfield police Sgt. Troy Oviatt.

Just a hunch, based on being a Dad...biting off a nose will probably NOT stop crying.

Oh well. If the kid inherited THIS turd’s genes for beauty, biting off its poor little nose might have been an improvement. Biting off a nose for crying must have been a Dr. Spock chapter I missed. They should cut off another part of this waste of oxygen’s anatomy to prevent any further such incidents.

I was 19 and husband 29. We passed our 55th year in Feb. It is definitely the commitment one makes. Back then you went into it knowing it was forever, but now they go into it thinking if I don’t like it I can just get out.

Before I saw the picture, I thought it might be blacks. Biting off the nose, will not stop crying. A baby can’t tell the parents what is needed.

Same thing when he goes to prison. He’s prime meat for execution.

He’s either got serious mental problems, or he was high on something like ectasy or mushrooms.
