That tool is 46-year-old Thomas J. West of Swanton, Vermont. He allegedly admitting to punching his 2-month-old granddaughter in the head so hard that it fractured her skull. Of course it was because he was frustrated at the baby’s crying. He was watching the girl for her parents at the time.
What makes it worse is that West asked the parents to be the full time nanny for the girl.
West has three of his own kids so it’s not like he’s never raised kids before.
The article says that West has some sort of parole violation as well but I couldn’t find any information on his prior arrest.
