Baby = Club?

Woman charged with using infant as club; child critical. Words fail me here. I just cannot understand the lack of mental process this "mother" went through before deciding to swing her 4-week-old baby like a club.

Everytime I read a story like this I get a little more deeply saddened by the world. The same thing with "Christians" espousing their deep faith in one breath and then condemning and calling for the extermination of another people in another breath.
