It sounds like the Thompson need to spend a lot more time in jail. Children are not a bother, they are a blessing. God gives them to you as a gift. Sadly the Thompsons got a gift they destroyed. Irina, honey, spread your wings and fly. Grow to the highest heights you can reach. You are a blessing honey.

Children are God's way of keeping people from enjoying sex too much. Fortunately mankind has been able to work around the penalty so we can focus on the reward.

What a terrible crime! Burn a child to death? Those monsters should be executed! These lunatics should have never been allowed to share their miserable lives with children!. Never.

You are right! There is a hot corner in Hell reserved for this pair and all who kill innocent children... and, yes, that does include abortions.

I don't understand how they can only get a few years when they put a child in scalding hot water until he got 3rd degree burns then just laid him on a mattress until he died. These people are monsters and deserve the death penalty for what they have done and nothing less.
I was glad to hear that the girl has found a good home with loving him people.

Why isn't Amy-Scumbag Thompson not in jail for life? I can only hope someone gives both of them a dose of prison justice.

Good luck Irina, sounds like you have a good family now who will care for, and love you..

So sad. Put parents away forever. THey will just be worse when they get out. PEople who commit crimes like this will not be rehabilitated in jail, so put them away forever or do not be surprised when then commit similar crimes when they get out. WAKE UP AMERICA!

The Thompson's certainly deserve life in prison (w/o parole).

The Palmer's and their three daughters should be given a trip to Disney World. Good luck to the entire family and God bless.

What a heart wrenching story. Poor little Liam, I can't imagine the pain and misery that baby went through that last week of his life......It is nice to hear that Irina has found a good, safe forever home.

Thanks for the nice story about the Palmers, who are the picture of love that most adoptive families are.

Why not a death penalty, not 14 years in jail. They have rewarded baby killers.

I say a bath in scalding hot water and a nice rough mattress to lie on.

I sure do hope that prison justice is falling fast and hard on these people. I think that years of pain and misery is deserved for these two subhuman creatures.

I cannot believe those creeps only got 14 & 15 years. Life would be too good for them. The horror is that they will likely be out before they turn 50. I hope they get what they truly deserve in prison and after.

The laws need to be changed. Any person who could do that to a helpless child or a person who knew it and didn't report it doesn't deserve to walk the streets again...ever. We have so much crime because our punishments don't deter people.

For everyone talking about life sentences and death penalty..... Lets hope "prison justice" does its job here....there is not really a farther rung down the ladder....Other prisoners tend to take care of baby killers....
