OAKLAND (CBS SF) — An Oakland mother was arrested early Thursday morning for allegedly inflicting injuries on her 13-month-old boy that have left him in critical condition at a local hospital, police said.

Officers responded to the hospital at 12:26 a.m. Thursday to investigate a report about the boy’s condition, according to police.

A preliminary investigation by the responding officers along with investigators from the Police Department’s special victims unit and medical staff concluded that the boy’s injuries are consistent with child abuse, police said.

The boy’s mother was arrested and the boy is listed in critical condition, according to police.

Oakland police logs indicate that the boy’s family lives in the 10400 block of MacArthur Boulevard.

    Have you “google-mapped” this block? And, strangely not an ounce of outrage, protest, or peep from anyone in the neighborhood. Yet, in the general public of some neighborhoods, when a law enforcement officer enforces the law against a suspect and has to resort to physical force to public safety or non-compliancy, “the neighborhood” goes ape-$h!+ over it.

      Thought and prayers to the infant and the mother. Both will need help of all kinds. And the father too if he’s still in the picture..
