There is this video of an 18-year-old Malaysian mother beating up her 8-month-old baby. It is unbelievably upsetting. No, I didn’t look the video up for fun, everyone was so enraged by it that I had to know what she did that was so bad.. so I did. And my God, was it horrific. I watched no more than a couple of seconds of it and even then, I had to scroll down to the comments section because I couldn’t bring myself to watch it.. I seriously can’t think of what could possess a normal person, let alone a MOTHER, to hurt her own child like that. The baby was helpless, and it even tried to go to its MOTHER for COMFORT. And that’s what breaks my heart the most.. The fact that all the baby knew was that MUM MEANT SAFETY AND COMFORT, yet the complete opposite was what the mother was doing. I still can’t stop crying, obviously I was aware that this was happening in various places around the world, but just actually seeing it with my own two eyes was just the reality check that this was all real. Thankfully, the baby’s doing well with a foster family and the mother’s in prison, though only for 18 MONTHS. I’m sorry, but I’ve seen less dangerous criminals being punished with longer time. Now, I’m not one of those people who uses the death penalty argument as a way to express my anger, but I really think that that is the closest thing to a fair punishment for her. What’s even worse than all of this was that some people even had the audacity to like the video. Hell, I can’t even watch it fully, and a number even posted some hurtful and totally insensitive and inhuman comments about the video in support of the abuse. My faith in humanity is rapidly disappearing.
