    Mom who withheld son's cancer meds gets 8-10 years

    Fair or not? discuss.

    "I am remorseful for my actions and I wish I could have done things differently," LaBrie told the judge in a courtroom packed with sobbing family members and friends of both LaBrie and the boy's father, Eric Fraser.
    is she saying she had no choice? she's a monster.

    She should have gotten a tougher sentence.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    I feel sorry for her. That's 2.5 years of being locked up. I don't see her as a threat to society that we need to keep in a cage.

    I empathize with the immense pressure she was under as a single parent caring for a severely disabled child, and I can understand how adding the horrific burden of cancer into the mix could push one over the top. However, she clearly knew what she was doing was wrong... and she clearly knew her actions could, and probably would, lead to her child's death.

    The sentence is appropriate, and I hope she serves every day of it.

    If the doctor's testimony is true, this woman knew that her actions would likely lead to her son's death. If she were struggling mentally and emotionally she should have sought the multitude of resources available to parents of autistic or parents of children with cancer and found support. Withholding medication was cruel. That child couldn't even voice his pain or discomfort.

    So what if she deprived her son of medicines he'd need to live? Don't conservatives support
    total parental control over medical decisions when it comes to their children? Even when it goes against the opinion of educated medical professionals? You people act like this is out of the norm in the US.

    And don't liberals support the state raising children the "right way"? So what are you bitching about?

    Since when are 'medical professionals' the state? Failure. Now piss off troll.

    she might not be a threat to society in general, but she murdered her son and deserves to be punished.
