Increase prison time

Child abuse should not be a memory for a family or child. Unfortunately, Maryland does not value the life of a child like that of an adult and the MAXIMUM amount of time a convicted child killer can serve is 30 years. Furthermore, these inmates are only required to serve 50% of their sentence, so even if they receive the maximum they can be back on the streets in 15 years, and this needs to change! The maximum sentence needs to be harsher! If the victim dies, LIFE should be automatic,NO PAROLE! If the victim survives with disabilities, 60-75+ years, no parole while incarcerated, 15 years of supervised probation, If the victim survives with no disabilities, 60-70 years, no parole while incarcerated, 10-14 years of probation. MARYLAND WAKE UP!!! LISTEN TO YOUR CITIZENS!!!

      It's so sad when a child gets abused like this, and it goes unnoticed. These poor parents that have to live everyday as this was their last picture of their child. the state lets them out again? just to let this happen to another family? it is wrong! no parent should ever bury their child, and especially see their child hurt like this. justice for these poor defendless babies!

      How can murdering a child be a lesser crime when the murderer has snubbed out far more of an ongoing life?

      Someone that abuses a child should not be able to be slapped on the hand for doing wrong and letting them suffer in jail, i think there should be torture brought upon them like that poor child had to indure.
