The recent death of a 2 year old in Michigan due to Shaken Baby Syndrome is unacceptable. Create a law that provides a minimum 10 year sentence for proven cases of child abuse causing physical harm to the child. If the child dies from the injuries, sentence the perpetrator to mandatory life without parole.

Create and pass "Damian's Law"

Sincerely,

      I am an emergency room RN Manager and see this way to often. This case was VERY close to my heart and change needs to happen.

      I am signing this because I am a health care provider in an emergency room and see shaken babies much more frequently than we should. I don't want to see one shaken baby. The people that treat defenseless infants like this are monsters. They should get the death penalty but if 10 years is all I can hope for than it will have to do. We need to pass this law with the way society is today. People have no sense of reality and expect little to no repercussions for any crime they commit. It's time to set an example. Thank you.
