No bail for child-killing parents

"He is incarcerated because of his faith" - Lawyer Bobby Hoof 

Bobby Hoof represents Herbert and Catherine Schaible, who lost a second child to faith healing. This time they are charged with third degree murder instead of manslaughter.  

The Schaible were denied bail by Common Please Judge Carolyn Engel Temin who stated, "It's very clear that the law says that religious freedom is trumped by the safety of a child."

Is this a murder case? In my opinion it is. When they were convicted of manslaughter in the death of their first child, they were placed on ten-years probation with the stipulation that their children receive supervised mandatory medical care. Instead, they allowed their newborn son to die without any medical care at all. The judge was right to deny them bail. They are a danger to their children and by extension, the children of their cult. 

I demand justice. I hope the jury convicts these child killers and the sentence is at least 25 years each. I hope that their children are placed in foster care and eventually placed in a good non-cult home. I know this one is unreasonable, but I would like to see both parents should sterilized too. They should never be allowed to have children again.
