One last thing before I head out.
What is the proper punishment for someone who throws a baby out of a car window? Because death just doesn't seem like enough.
Update: The whole thing was a lie.

Remember what the gangsters did to Mel Gibson at the end of "Payback?" That would be a start.

For people like this and the Dollars? I'm ready to accept public burning.

I hate to bring up my religion again, but remember those flam-throwers I was talking about the other day? Yeah, they would work just fine in this case as well.

Auto da fe, bastinado...so many tortures, so little time.

I have a few ideas, but they wouldn't be appropriate for a family-oriented blog.
Come to think of it, they wouldn't be appropriate for any forum. They'd make Lucifer himself puke his rotten guts out.
But I'd enjoy it immensely.

Anyone remember that drawn-and-quartered scene from The Hitcher?

It's even more horrible than at first glance, since we have a "safe haven" law down here that allows you to drop off/give away a newborn at a hospital or fire station, no questions asked.
But hey, who has time for the commute?

What's most horrible is that it wasn't just them trying to get rid of the baby, but actually hoping it would die (judging by the plastic bag around its head, in the story I read).
On the blog, I suggested throwing them out of a moving vehicle... from 20000 feet.
Now, though, I think putting plastic bags over their heads and letting them watch each other suffocate might be morbidly poetic.

You're right. Death isn't quite enough. The person should be strapped in a chair in a small room that has pictures of the child everywhere. The child must have tormented the person so why not punish the person with what torments him/her. For extra measure...send electric shocks through their body randomly & often. This should go on for a yr. or two. Better than death no?

A car crusher. Weld them in the car with no way to escape. Speakers that continually play a baby's cries. Put the car (with them in it) in the crusher. Every five minutes, crush the car an additional six inches.
It'll seem like an eternity, be very painful, and make them EXTREMELY sorry for what they did. Then it'll kill them, and we won't have to deal with them ever again.
(I'd be happy to run the crusher.)

Slow and painful death. A quick death is too good for him, but at somepoint we have to put him out of OUR misery.

Looks like they've got the mother.

Torture is the only thing that could ever possibly deter future idiots from doing this again. How has our society become so wussy as to not inflict pain upon those who have truly earned it like these people?

I was thinking the throwing her from a plane would be good as well. She would have a little while to think about her actions before the splat.

The really sad part about this is that I wasn't that shocked and horrified, because I remember a story my father told me from his days in the Indian Health service involving a mother tossing her baby boy out a pickup window- and then they GAVE THE KID BACK TO THE MOTHER.
Needless to say his lifespan was limited after that.

The whole story was bogus and made up by the babies mother. She had delivered it at home in the bathroom earlier and did not want it. The child never was thrown out. The mother is in custody.

Followup question: What is the proper punishment for someone who makes up such a story in order to pass off a kid she doesn't want?

Now it turns out the whole thing was a bunch of BS!

yes, Drew. Hence my update.

Nothing. She could have thrown the baby in a dumpster but she didn't. She broke no laws except for filing the false report. And that is not something she had set out to do.

My first thought, this morn (before the rest of the story, the lie, etc) ... was that I would have just taken that baby home. No, that baby would have been MINE ... I found it.

"Nothing. She could have thrown the baby in a dumpster but she didn't. She broke no laws except for filing the false report."
So there is no proper punishment for filing a false report? Errr... ok.
I mean, it's not like she sucked up valuable resources or possibly endangered the livelihood and well-being of an innocent person who might be arrested as a result of her non-punishment-deserving false report.
Give me a break.
