If you cover up the death of your child for his murderer you never loved that child and you should get the maximum sentence.

Reading the scant information available I'd say she's a bit intellectually impaired, and her actions were carried out under duress/fear of death. That can be extended fo what she told her daughter. It's not as clear cut as it seems.

One could argue it was the heat of the moment that lead to her decision. Most likely will be the defendant’s reasoning in court.

Thats a terrible argument when youve been in charge of that childs well being through pregnancy and three years of life.

Not saying it’s morally right. But legally an acceptable defense. The joys of the grey area in the law I suppose

Do you want a Pinball Wizard because that's how you get a Pinball Wizard.

Okay its been awhile: Can anybody explain why that u/bassachre has +5 and I have -20? I thought we were on the same page. Thanks reddit.

When you care more about the upvotes than the actual topic you have a problem.

When I use up/downvotes to help me validate my internal thoughts about this fucked up subject. But thanks for chiming in.

Exactly that's a problem one you should deal with sooner than later.

Well they are saying this person should be held accountable for their actions in a court of law. You appear to be advocating for extrajudicial killings. That's not the same page at all.

Its because Reddit is full of circle jerkers. I have no doubt some people downvoted you legitimately, however i guarantee a lot of people just see a comment being downvoted and begin adding to it or piling it on.
