Crimes: Murder.

John Douglas Peterson of Palisade, Minnesota, USA, is a baby killer. He’s also a bad liar, thank goodness.

The baby that John Peterson murdered was his own 5-week-old daughter. Five weeks old. Babies who are 5 weeks old are extremely helpless and extremely fragile. Their skill set at that age consists mostly of peeing, pooping and crying.

What kind of sack of shit fuckturd doesn’t know that or else doesn’t care? The John Douglas Peterson kind, apparently.

On November 18, 2016, the baby’s mother called 911. Her baby had been having breathing problems and had just stopped breathing altogether. The baby was rushed by ambulance to Riverwood Healthcare Center, and from there she was sent to Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota in Minneapolis. The medical staff notified the authorities on November 19, 2016 that the poor wee baby had 3 separate bruises, a certain indication of physical abuse.

On November 21, 2016, the tiny baby girl’s life stopped. She died of serious head injuries — a fractured skull and subdural bleeding.

There were, unsurprisingly, questions that needed answering by John Peterson. The baby killer wasn’t quite prepared.

At first John Peterson denied to hospital staff that his baby had fallen. He insisted she’d been lying on her back on a blanket on the floor when she spontaneously began gasping and having trouble breathing.

Obviously that story didn’t ring true. When pressed with more questioning later, John Peterson said his baby had been fussy and flailing her limbs when he tried to pick her up, and he just lost his grip on her. The baby then fell and hit her head on the middle partition of the sink, ricocheted off that and hit the bottom of the sink.

Creative story, but still not believable considering the injuries, so John Peterson tried again. He next told the authorities that his baby had fallen from the sink to the floor. He said “everything happened so fast” and he tried to catch her before she hit the floor but “it was like he pushed and tried to grab her at the same time”. Tragically, the baby hit the floor and “it was ugly”.

Later on, in another interview with authorities, John Peterson changed his story again. This time he said he was holding his baby while he was getting her bottle ready. She somehow rolled out of his arms and hit her head on the sink, bounced off that and fell onto the floor.

I’m sure the authorities called bullshit on this pile of garbage, because John Peterson admitted he lied. And finally, finally the horrific truth was told.

On November 18, 2016, John Peterson found alone himself with a crying, inconsolable baby on his hands. He was unable to calm her down and grew increasingly frustrated and angry. Instead of putting her in her cot and walking away for a few minutes to calm himself down, John Peterson chose to do the unthinkable. He lost his temper big time.

John Peterson threw his tiny baby girl like a basketball, with a whole lot of force, through the air into the kitchen. The baby landed hard on her back and skidded across the floor for a bit. The back of her head then hit the bottom of a cupboard, and her skull fractured.

And that, dear readers, is one way to murder a baby.

John Douglas Peterson, then 33, was charged in Aitkin County with felony 2nd-degree murder. On September 27, 2017, he was convicted of 2nd-degree murder without intent.

Sentencing for the baby killer took place on October 3, 2017. He was sentenced to 17½ years in prison.

All it took was an instant for John Peterson to release his rage and destroy 3 lives: his own, his baby’s mother’s, and of course his baby’s.

RIP baby girl. You deserved a full lifetime of love, happiness, and success.

I extend my heartfelt condolences to those who love and mourn that tiny baby.

John Douglas Peterson has a lifetime to try to understand how he could have literally thrown his daughter’s life away. His lies seemed to childishly pin the blame on the victim — she flailed, she rolled out of his arms, she fussed. I hope he becomes man enough to recognize that 100% of the blame truly lies with him.

    Murdering babies? People like that shouldn’t be allowed to live in the same solar system as the rest of us

    It seems like more and more men are abusing and killing their babies, all because they get frustrated over their baby acting like a baby! Babies cry! Babies cannot tell you what is wrong with them, cannot tell you what they need, what they want. How hard is it to just lay the baby in their bed, in their playpen, and walk out of the room and calm down? Yeah, I have been frustrated when my children were babies, and they cried and I couldn’t console them. Yeah, I got frustrated because I didn’t know what they wanted. But I did the ADULT thing, and walked outside for a few minutes and calmed down. I would never hit or hurt my children, all because I was frustrated or inconvenienced. Men like this assclown, they know they are bigger than a baby. They know that a baby cannot talk and convey what they need. They know that babies are fragile and helpless. But he chose to take his frustrations out on a helpless infant. He didn’t care enough about his own child to do the right thing. He could have called a family member or friend for help. I hope he lives in misery for the rest of his life. He gets to live his life, but his daughter won’t be able to do the same. But, maybe she is better off. With a dad like this, it would only be a matter of time before he hurt her or killed her. And these women need to learn to not leave their kids with just anyone. Or any man. Or a man they haven’t known that long. Idiots.

    This bastard isn’t any kind of a man. He’s a big man baby who had a tantrum and threw a most precious infant to her death. He’s a big man baby who couldn’t own up to his own actions, and lied repeatedly. Disgusting specimen. I hope he grows up before he’s released. Nix that, I hope he never is released.

      You are 100% correct. It is a big coward who can’t deal with a little baby crying. I hope her screams haunt his every worthless moment on earth. And I hope he ceases to breathe, SOON. Maybe someone in prison will get sick of his pasty, sissy face and slam dunk him on a concrete floor, busting his skull!
