Via Musings, Boots & Sabers discusses a parole board hearing. Basically, the convicted murderer threw away her one day old infant, killing her. More details, including some that he thinks contradicts her claim that she was psychotic. Maybe, maybe not. My issues: 1) This kind of thing happens not infrequently. Yeah, it's bad but it's not unique. 2) If the infant was only one day old, did the mother deliver in a hospital? Did she know she was pregnant before she delivered? 3) While I want someone likely to be a serial killer either killed or locked away forever, I suspect this person is unlikely to do something like this again. This may not be the silliest example of someone in prison, but I don't think the punishment fits the crime.
