    BABY Jordan had his tiny toes crushed one by one, was hit so hard his bottom teeth went through the roof of his mouth, and was subjected to repeated punches to the stomach.

    The seven-month-old's torture and suffering ended only when he choked to death on his own vomit

    8 years for the death of this innocent baby is a crime in itself!!

    Wow! I guess they don't care if you kill people in that area of Australia. Setences for murder are less than 25 years. And manslaughter, like if you beat a helpless baby and it just happens to die, are less than that, well, just because no one else has ever had balls enough to give a harsher sentence, so current justices won't either.

    I've got to stop trying to find logic where there is none.

    I think 8 years is a ridiculous sentence... I wonder how baby killers are treated in australian prison by other inmates?

    hopefully they treat them like chit and this 8 years will be 8 years of pure harsh torture. It's the least they could do for giving such a light sentence. This type of thing so pisses me off

    That is disgusting! Poor baby....I canoot even imagine doing that to an adult, much less a child. How does that guy (and the mother) sleep at night?

    Isn't it true that here in America, if you kill your parents, you will receive a harsher sentence than if your parents kill you?

    We talk a big game about how important our kids are, but we rarely deliver.

    ajt... I felt sick when I read that story. A helpless baby for crying out loud :dontknow:

    But 8 years is the biggest crime, why is this child's cruel death not worth life inprisonment?
