Talk about fucked up

This story from the BBC reported on a couple appealing their sentences for the rape of a 12-month old baby. The part that I find appalling is that they got trivial sentences. I personally would want to have them locked away forever with no chance of parole. Ever. Period.

Unfortunately, the punishment that I would really want for them falls in the cruel and unusual category.

How can this even be a reasonable sentence? As noted in the article, the victim will still be a child when this pair is released from prison. And its not like they were clean upstanding citizens before hand. The man is a repeat offender. I don’t get it.
