That's what I call a sentence!

"BATAVIA, Ohio - A judge sentenced a woman Thursday to 54 years to life in prison for causing the death of her 3-year-old developmentally disabled foster son by leaving him bound cocoon-like in a closet..."


Sometimes one comes across an act of cruelty that you just can't get it out of your head.

This is one of them.

I hope that 54 years will be done in a VERY SMALL cell. A few years in a straightjacket would be in order, too!

A couple of points:

The US knows haw to come up with a proper penalty for such a despicable act.

The US also would seem to have the same problem we have here. Foster children are at risk with their 'Carers' provided by state agencies.

Maybe we would be better off with orphanages...
