Natural Born Killers

If killing animals for meat is 'murder', what sentence should the vegan parents receive having deliberately starved their child to death?

Jade Sanders and Lamont Thomas fed the boy, named Crown Shakur, a diet largely consisting of soy milk and apple juice, the Atlanta court heard.

The child was born in the couple's home and never taken to see a doctor.

He was dead when they took him to a hospital across the street from their flat on April 25, 2004.

He was so emaciated that doctors could count his bones through his skin.
Answer: Life.

We can only hope that it is without possibility of parole so they can't kill any more children.

UPDATE: Speaking of wicked child abuse:

A QUEENSLAND man responsible for the worst case of incest in South Australian legal history has begged a judge to show him mercy.

The 64-year-old, of Gympie, has admitted not only sexually assaulting his three daughters for 20 years but also providing them to his friend and cousin for sex.

The South Australian District Court has heard he started abusing his daughters in 1967, when one of the girls was six.

After decades of acts including bestiality, he moved to Queensland and started a new family.
Mercy? The man deserves the same mercy he showed his victims. None.
