What a horrible father. Mother isn't really a good gene candidate either...poor kid.

The girl's mother, Alena Bartholemew, doesn't believe the story.
She says Taylor was under attack and did what he could to protect their baby. "I'm hurting now because I know my baby's father is in jail facing charges and I don't feel that it is reasonable," Bartholemew told NBC Bay Area.
"Anybody who feels that they think that John had thrown the baby out, please get that out your mind -- there is no reason to believe that. He is a great father to her."

Drivers in the neighborhood tried to stop Taylor as he ran from cops. When officers caught up with him, they found him in a violent scuffle with those motorists

He was under attack? Did she witness this? Throwing a baby into traffic protects the child from nothing!
