What the hell kind of country are we living in? Are parts of this country filled with a bunch of pre-hominid animals? Maybe if the mother had taken the kid to the hospital sooner than 2 hours, he'd be alive. The mother is charged with manslaughter. This is completely disgusting. The kid needs intensive intervention for sure, but life in prison is completely crazy.
And where were his lawyers? He has no understanding to know if he should talk or answer questions without a lawyer and his idiot mother is unqualified to make that decision for him. The whole thing should be thrown out.

Angry that the crazies are taking over?
Be part of the solution, not part of the problem.
All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing. -Attributed to Edmund Burke*
