Baby Batterer Free

Baby Batterer

Baby Batterer

This is Claire Thompson who is a convicted baby batterer.

She fractured the skull, broke a rib and inflicted up to 3 leg fractures on a nine week old baby.

The full story is HERE.

Incredibly, the judge let her off with a suspended sentence, 200 hours community service and costs of £500.

I see 2 issues here – firstly the ridiculous sentence which sends the message that it’s no more serious to batter a baby than, say, to do a bit of shoplifting.

The second point is one of equality.

If a man had done this there would have been double page spreads in the papers about how evil men are and no doubt the judge would have handed down a much harsher sentence (one more fitting).
