Mikey Martinez Punches Baby in the Head to Stop Crying, Blames ADHD

She told them that her husband had brutally punched the boy in the head over the past two days in an attempt to get him to stop crying.
When police arrested Mikey, he started to bawl like his 1-month-old son, telling the cops, "I didn't mean to. I have ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) and it's my first baby."
The baby ended up with two skull fractures. When detectives asked Martinez if he knew he was hitting the boy hard enough to kill him, he answered yes. He also admitted he'd hit him just as hard the day before.
But he apparently believed that playing the old ADHD card would get him out of trouble, just like it does when you're in school.
Sadly, that's not a card in the legal system's deck. (Boys and young men have a hard time paying attention? No shit?) He was charged with attempted first-degree murder and child abuse.
