    Australia - Girl, 16 wks, dies of head trauma, Dubbo, NSW, 20 July 2004

    A woman who admitted killing her lovers 16 week old daughter and trying to blame someone else for the crime has been jailed for 5 years.
    She had been coming down from heroin and couldnt handle the baby crying so she slammed her into the wooden side of a futon bed.
    What is wrong with these judges ...sometimes thay care more for the murderer than they do for the victim .

    This judge needs to have HER head slammed up against the futon frame for making such a dumb a$$ed sentence. 5 years for the death of a child...now THAT is criminal!!!

    From the article:

    "I accept that the offender was not in complete control of herself," said Acting Justice Mathews.

    "She was suffering from drug withdrawal, sleeplessness and frustration at her inability to stop the baby crying. She had minimal personal resources to draw upon."

    What?!

    First of all, who leaves his baby with a junkie and expects everything to turn out OK?

    Secondly, why is it better in this judge's eyes that she was out of control? By that rationale, drunk drivers should get LIGHTER sentences when they kill people, but that's not how stuff like that is handled.
    Just thinkin' out loud....

    If I remember correctly...Heroin is an illegal substance. So not only do we have an individual buying an illegal substance, they have put this substance in their body, but they also have commited murder against a child.

    Good job Judge!!! Lets give all the drug induced individuals the idea that just because you are on drugs and do something stupid, you should get a "break".

    AND she tried to blame her cellmate whom she never met before she went to jail. UNBELIEVABLE!!!!
    I'd rather be hated for who I am than loved for pretending to be someone I'm not.

    I was wondering the same thing! Where the heck is the father in all of this??
    Since this was his GF why is he not being held responsible for leaving his baby with a drug addict?

    Yeah, and if she had so much as sold marijuana she probably would have gotten 15 years. I am so sick of this.

    My brother was on drugs and stole my other brothers credit card...he got 5 years. The justice system is out of control. Someone kills a baby and gets 5 years. Mary Winkle shoots her husband in the back...serves very little time. Human life doesn't seem to be very important these days. What the judge really said is that babies life was only worth 5 years. How sad!

    You know, I have two girls, and I was young when I had them, I was ages 17 and 19. I knew NOTHING about taking care of a baby because I was an only child.
    And sometimes their ceaseless crying would send me to the edge, but you know what? Thats when you put them in the crib, shut the door, and let them cry and get ahold of yourself before you do something stupid like this. They most likely won't die lying their while you take a couple of minutes to regain YOUR control.
    Babies can't help crying, it's their only form of letting you know something is wrong. Adults CAN help their actions.
