At first, I was saddened. After what this mother did, I would have expected a lengthy stay in the Iron Bar Motel.
The 6 1/2-pound newborn baby was likely in the toilet for 90 minutes and was near death before he was found by a cleaning crew in the stall filled with blood and other gore. His head was barely above the water and his body temperature was 85 degrees, prosecutor Betty Strom said.
I would certainly agree that there are better punishments that could be administered. She should have been taken out back and beaten soundly with a 2×4 before being fed to the lions.
Sadly, she got a year’s home confinement instead.
