Adam Kightley and Jacqueline Parker

Jacqueline Parker, 21, and Adam Kightley, 24, of London Road, Northampton, have been jailed for 7 years following the death of their baby Jamie. A charge of murder against both defendants was dropped but they were found guilty of allowing his death by neglect.

 Jamie Kightley suffered severe brain injuries and more than 40 fractures and died soon after he was admitted to hospital on 17 March 2012. He was found "not breathing" at 06:30 by Mr Kightley, who when questioned in court said he did not pick up and cuddle his son because he was "in shock".

 The baby had extensive bruising all over his body, no pulse and was not breathing when he arrived at Northampton General Hospital by ambulance. He was pronounced dead about 30 minutes later.

 The prosecution said Jamie had been assaulted about two weeks before his death and again within hours of his death, but that both parents had "hidden behind a wall of silence" over who was responsible. Medical evidence showed he suffered injuries consistent with being grabbed around the middle and shaken.

 Kightley and Parker agreed they had been drinking and smoking cannabis the night before Jamie's death but denied doing anything to harm their son. When asked about bruises on his body, Parker claimed she had not seen them until Jamie was in hospital. She also said Jamie went seven hours without being fed the day before his death.

 7 years in prison is a joke. They should be beaten and left to starve to death, just like they did to their baby.

Tracey Connelly

Tracey Connelly was jailed indefinitely with a minimum of five years in May 2009 after she allowed her 17-month-old son Peter to be tortured to death by her lover.

After serving three years, Connelly is being released, given a makeover and a new name - all at the taxpayers' expense.

Baby Peter suffered more than 50 injuries, including a broken back, over an eight-month period despite being registered as at-risk and repeated visits to his home by Haringey Children’s services and NHS health professionals.

He died in hospital after being found in his blood-stained cot at his mother’s flat in Tottenham, north London in August 2007.

Connelly admitted the offence soon after being charged and served several hundred days on remand. She admitted she did nothing while her boyfriend, Steven Barker, and his paedophile brother, Jason Owen, tortured Peter to death.

In October, a parole board concluded that Connelly posed ‘no danger to the public’ and should be released from jail. The news outraged relatives of Baby Peter’s father, who said she should never be let out. A Probation Service source said Connelly could be ‘smuggled’ out of jail to avoid her being attacked.

Decent people in this country must be disgusted at what this woman did and how lightly she got off without having their noses rubbed in it. Justice? What justice?

Over to you, Nick! Do your stuff.
