Christophe Champenois, aged 36, rammed three-year-old Bastien into the device and switched it on, allegedly as punishment for misbehaviour. The child's 29-year-old mother, Charlene Cotte, told investigators she did a puzzle with her daughter, and Champenois used the internet while their son screamed inside the whirring washing machine. She was jailed for 12 years, for "aiding and abetting murder and violence". Cotte said that when her ex-husband removed Bastien from the machine and noticed he was no longer breathing, he said: "At least he won't bother us anymore." It was Champenois himself who called emergency services in the town of Germigny-l'Eveque, east of Paris, in November 2011, saying he had a "small problem" as his son had fallen down the stairs.
The author of the article goes on to say that people in the US are sentenced to do time for crimes that would not produce such a sentence in other countries. According to another article in the New York Times (2008), states spend close to ten percent of their budget on corrections (Liptak &, 2008). In 2007 alone, states spend close to $45 million tax dollars. Not only is simply housing an inmate costly, but healthcare also provides a financial burden. In 1998, the states paid a little over seven dollars a day per inmate for healthcare (Kinsella, 2004).
Before he died in 1954, without even acknowledging his son, Scott defaulted on the judgment. In 1939, Kathleen and her brother were sentenced to five years of imprisonment for the robbery of a West Virginia gas station; Charles went to live with a maternal aunt and a sadistic uncle. This uncle often spoke of him as a “sissy” and gave him girls’ school clothes to assist him in “acting like a man”. Charlie’s strictly religious aunt believed all pleasures were sinful. On the other hand, his alcoholic tramp for a mother let him go about as he wished, so this put him in between some very different disciplinary approaches.

There has been no physical proof that Rand murdered anyone, but his disturbing persona has all fingers pointed at him. Born Andre Rashan, the Hannibal Lector of Staten Island was around the mentally disabled since a youth. His mother was placed in a mental institution when he was a teenager and he would often visit her. Between 1966 and 1968, Rand worked at New York's Willowbrook State School as a physical therapy aide. His first brush with the law was on May 25, 1969, when he enticed a 9-year-old Bronx girl into his car and drove her to a vacant lot.
Gault’s mom came home that day from work and could not find her son anywhere. She then sent Gault’s oldest brother out to look for him.

Jojo was taken from her mother 3 months ago because of neglect, though this client’s problems are different from any of the others whom you have worked with before. Child and family services became involved with Anna and Jojo because of a report made by Jojo’s Head Start teacher that Anna was not feeding Jojo appropriately. In fact, the investigators discovered that Anna thought Jojo was too fat and only fed her water and bananas to help her lose weight. She apparently fed Jojo like this for three weeks before the teacher noticed a change in Jojo during school time. When the teacher noticed that Jojo was rapidly losing weight, she contacted Anna, who told the teacher to mind her own business.
Sowell’s childhood consisted of watching his mother beat on his nieces and nephews while he and his brother watched, from a different room. Anthony gained the trust of one of his nieces over the period of a couple of months then he began raping her at her tender young age of eleven. This went on for about two years on a daily basis. Since his niece never told anyone about the sexual abuse Anthony kept doing it. This behavior started the obsession tendencies he had over women.
In memoirs of survivors, we learned that they were separated from their families, stripped of their possessions, clothing and cut off their hair. Those not capable of laboring such as elderly and children were sent to gas chambers. Those able to work lived in conditions not fit for an animal, and were starved daily. Families were destroyed and future generations were affected. In today’s world the biggest act of dehumanization is the tens of thousands of children that have been taken away from their families to become soldiers.
Another example would be that the United States gives an average burglary sentence around sixteen months, but Canada gives a sentence of five months, and in England people get about seven months. This is a rather large difference, and can explain why the United States as of 2009 holds the highest incarceration rate throughout the world at 754 inmates per 100,000 people. The war on drugs in the United States has seriously impacted the criminal justice system. There have been a lot more people arrested and sentenced for non violent crimes. This has also had a big part in the current overcrowding of the United States prisons.
