    No they don't need state help. Any conservative legislator who is true to their tea party principles will crow on about crony capitalism. I look forward to deafening silence.

Re: “The law in the Naramore child death case as opening statements begin

So far I see good, compassionate, reasonable comments. I find myself agreeing. Then I go back and re-read the sample instructions to the jury, which seem to me to clearly require a guilty verdict based on the presented facts of this case. If this is a fair recap of the law, a guilty verdict is a no-brainer.

In my opinion, the over-riding factor for punishment should be: how has the state dealt with previous cases with like circumstances? It is not as though we don't have plenty of examples in our recent history. Whatever punishment has been common to other defendants is what should happen here.

Unfortunately, that is the piece of information that seems to be lacking in the public discourse. We need research and publication of the recent past (maybe the last 20 years?), in order to make an assessment of what is fair in this case. If the great unwashed subsequently find dissatisfaction with the result, we can then lobby our representatives to change the law.
