The New York Times Magazine has taken a critical look at assumptions and conflicting data and research on symptons of shaken-baby syndrome -- and the questions they have raised in court as caretakers and others have been convicted of child abuse and more serious crimes.

It's a sad story all around. The author interviews caretakers accused and convicted of shaking babies, some of whom had died, as well as families who are dealing with the aftermath. Just like the conflicting medical data, there's no easy solution, answer or conclusion when you read this story.
