Dads like JAMES ANDREW LAROSE are always claiming they "snapped." That's crap. Normal parents might get irritated, but they don't punch out babies and kill them over a diaper change and then call it "snapping."
Prairie father 'snaps,' punches baby to deathPostmedia News April 27, 2011
A Saskatchewan father who pleaded guilty to manslaughter in the death of his six-month-old son admitted to punching the baby at least five times the night the infant died.
James Andrew Larose, 25, told police he just "snapped" during a diaper change of his infant son, Camden Bounting, on March 18, 2009. After punching the child numerous times, he then put the baby in his crib and did not check on him the rest of the night, Saskatoon Court of Queen's Bench heard Tuesday in an agreed statement of facts during sentencing arguments.
RCMP responded to a 911 call on March 19, 2009, around 10: 25 a.m., from a home in Lloydminster, Sask. Paramedics and the provincial coroner were also on scene. The mother was not home at the time of the incident.
Larose was arrested five days later after an autopsy was performed on the child. Justice Frank Gerein handed him a sentence of 5 1/2 years.
