A REALLY stupid vegan couple whose 6-week-old son starved to death because of an absurd diet of soy milk and apple juice must serve their life sentences fro murder. The Georgia Supreme Court was unanimous in rejecting appeals by Jade Sanders and Lamont Thomas. The Atlanta couple rushed their son, Crown Shakur, to hospital in 2004 after he began to have trouble breathing. Docs would not revive the child because of his sever malnourishment. Cops found a "rancid-smelling" baby bottle caked with debris. At their 2007 trial, prosecutors said the soy milk cartons in their apartment stated they were not to be used as a
substitute for baby formula. In addition, the DA charged that the couple intentionally neglected their child and refused to take him to the doctor even as his body wasted away. He was just 3.5 lbs. when he died--the same as a baby weighs at 7 months into a normal pregnancy. A jury convicted them of malice murder, felony murder, involuntary manslaughter and cruelty to children.
DA Chuck Boring said: "No matter how many times they want to say, `We're vegans, we're vegetarians,' that's not the issue in this case. The child died because he was not fed. Period."
The defense, of course, presented all manner of wacky ideas. SOY WHAT? IDIOT VEGANS APPEAL SHOT DOWN
