We recently discussed the outrage over a woman getting four-months probation for laughing at the torture of a defenseless, disabled man and posting this crime on social media. We have yet another absurd sentencing.
In Wisconsin, Richard A. Root, 21, was given six months in jail and seven years of probation after beating his 2-month-old daughter. He broke more than 20 of the infant’s bones and caused bleeding in her brain. Six months.
Winnebago County Circuit Judge Thomas Gritton ordered Root to stay employed or attend school, avoid alcohol and drugs, and undergo counseling.
Last weekend we discussed a man who rightfully received five years for killing a dog. However, you get a six-month sentence after almost killing a baby and breaking roughly ten percent of the bones in her body (including a broken leg and broken arm).
