People I Want to Punch in the Throat

I read a blog with that above title and it's pretty darn funny.
What I'm about to write about though is not funny.

In 2008 a baby girl (she was 8 months old I think) was found abandoned in the stairwell of a parking garage at a mall. It was winter. The search began for the monsters who would just dump their baby like that.

Thankfully, Baby Angelica, as she was called,  survived and was later adopted.

When the police finally found her parents they had the balls to deny that they were her parents - even after the DNA tests proved they were.

So guess what happened to them. Mom got a $300 fine. Dad got time served  (11 months).

People I'd like to punch in the throat - THEM!

But wait, it gets worse.

In 2009 Mom and Dad moved to Jamaica where earlier this week an angry mob of neighbours, concerned because they'd not seen their 2 year son in months, stormed their house and discovered his  remains in a suitcase

If you are so inclined you can read about it here.

Person I'd like to punch in the throat - the judge who gave mom a $300 fine and gave the Dad time served.

Apparently, that's all this little boys life was worth - because had Mom and Dad been thrown in a cage like the animals they are this little boy, while he wouldn't have lived - he wouldn't have died and  had his little body shoved into a suitcase either.

The story is that they think he died from eating a piece of ackee. Who knows if this is true - the police don't seem to suspect foul play however is it also possible that if they'd sought medical help he would be alive? And to stuff his body in a suitcase? What the hell is wrong in your head that you think that's okay??

It makes me wonder about our judicial system. A baby girl is left for dead in a freezing stairwell and they get what equated to nothing more than a slap on the wrist and license to make more babies that they clearly don't give a shit about. Not a bad argument for court ordered sterilization don't ya think?

Well, one can only hope the judicial system in Jamaica works better than it does here and those two sad excuses for parents really get what's coming to them.
