Can someone please tell me why infants and children hold less value in the eyes of the law than adults?
If 3 people went to rob a store, and one shot the clerk, they ALL go away for life for murder. Happens all the time.
But if 3 people live in a house where a child is being abused, and the child dies after enduring months, if not years, of torture, the person who killed the child usually gets a max of 15 years served in jail (if their sentence is say 30 years, which is unusual) and the others who allowed it usually get probation.
What gives?? No offense to any victims, but being shot and killed is a lot more humane than being sexually and/or physically abused to death. Shouldn't the sentence for the latter be greater???
