Heather Trujillo, the babysitter implicated in the death of 7-year old Zoe Garcia, has been given an 18-year suspended sentence, according to a report from Colorado NBC News affiliate 9 News. Trujillo, who was arrested along with her boyfriend Lamar Roberts, will instead spend six years in a youth offender program as part of a plea bargain. The two were charged with child abuse after acting out - in their own words - Mortal Kombat moves, kicking, punching and body slamming the young girl in December of last year.

Well, that's America for ya. Have the girl get a deal while she really rats out the guy. Is it just me, or is this anti-equality at its best?

If she was in the same room as the boyfriend, doing the SAME things he was doing, both of them should be tried equally. If I were the parent of the young girl, I would demand justice. Both of them should get 25-to-life, at least.
