    I'd say..

    1) Put the dog down.
    2) Place the father in jail for neglect.
    3) Give the mother back her children. They're blameless in all of this.

    oh, and dogs belong outside. Indoor dogs- just gross. I know people who let them sleep in bed with them, and lick them on their faces and mouth. But to leave one of those things unsupervised with an infant?? Just tragic. And I was thinking the same thing: how did he not hear the baby screaming for his life. The screaming and blood would have provoked the dog into a killing frenzy. It had be a loud enough to wake him if he was in the next room.
    I know someone who had a very faithful dog - who attacked him and mauled his face in the middle of the night because, while he was sleeping, he made some type of noise - or maybe rolled over. The man in his sleep did something to stir the dog - the dog pounced on him, growled in his face, and whne the man woke up he swatted the dog off - and the dog attacked.
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    A read a story about a lab who ripped a kid's face off unpredictably. It happens.

    Yeah, I wasn't referring to it being worse for the child -- but potentially worse for the breed which has an unfair reputation.

The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    What a horrible thing to have happen. It shouldn't have, just like children shouldn't die in car wrecks or by choking on a piece of hot dog (totally did that myself in 7th grade) or by drowning in the family pool. It's not fair though to claim that all dogs would do something like this. There are many more families with dogs and young children that have nothing like this happen. I grew up with dogs, Dobermans no less. Not all dogs are Cujo.

    That's the thought process that goes into situations just like this: parents don't think anything bad is going to happen - ever - because their dog is somehow more domesticated and would 'never do anything like that'

    If you have children + dogs = nothing bad happening - it's likely because those parents are smart and don't just leave their dogs with their sleeping children, etc.

    I totally slept with our dogs growing up. I used to voluteer for an animal shelter and, after meeting some of the families, I sometimes had a greater concern for what the kids might do to the dog than vice versa, granted that may be because I don't have kids. Stories like the OP are thankfully rare, that's why it made news. Sadly children are far more likely to be killed, either accidentally or otherwise, by other humans and stories like that rarely even make the news any more.
