UNNAMED DAD has admitted picking up his 5-week-old daughter by the neck--apparently on several occasions. The baby suffered brusing and a cut lip. What a piece of sh** this daddy is. Somebody big bubba should pick him up by the neck and toss his @$$. Mom took the baby to the hospital once she noticed the bruising, but it seems like CPS has "temporary" custody anyway.

HOQUIAM, Wash. -- A 24-year-old man was arrested Wednesday after admitting that he picked up his 5-week-old child by the neck and by the front of her clothing, Hoquiam police said.
Child Protective Services called police to a hospital near Hoquiam on Wednesday when they noticed injuries to the girl, police said. Police were told the girl had suffered bruising to an elbow, a hip, the abdomen and neck. The girl also had a cut lip, police said.
The girl’s 20-year-old mother told police that she took her daughter to the doctor after she noticed the bruising. The mother later said she had seen the baby’s father pick the girl up by the back of her neck or by pulling her up by grasping the front of her clothing, police said. The mother also said she thought the father would strike the girl on the back much harder than necessary when burping her, police said.
The father admitted to picking the child up by the neck and the front of the shirt, police said. He was booked into Grays Harbor County Jail on charges of third-degree assault of a child.
The baby did not appear to have life-threatening injuries, but was taken to Grays Harbor Community Hospital for further examination because of her age, police said. She was transferred to Mary Bridge Hospital in Tacoma for a more specific pediatric examination and to make sure she didn’t have any internal injuries, police said.
CPS was given temporary custody of the girl pending the outcome of the medical exam and further investigation by CPS and the Hoquiam police, police said.
