Dale and Leilani Neumann killed their eleven year old daugter off by refusing to get her medical attention for diabetes. Instead they prayed and, to no-one’s amazement but their own, the little girl died. They’ve just been sentenced to six months jail and ten years probation, though they’ve apparently not yet grasped just what they were sentenced for. The attorney for the mother argues that “My client has been charged with homicide because she has faith in her creator, ultimate faith.”
No, you idiot. Your client was charged with homicide because she could have saved her child’s life but chose instead to let her suffer and die. So, our question for the day is whether or not the sentence was adequate for the crime. Cast your vote now!
