Life is cheap.
From the BBC.
"A South African court has convicted a woman of hiring a gang to kill the six-month-old daughter of her lover.
Dina Rodrigues paid four men, all of whom were also convicted of murder and robbery, a total of $1,500 to murder Jordan-Leigh Norton in 2005.
The baby was stabbed in the neck and her body was found in a drain in the capital, Pretoria.
It is the first case of its kind in South Africa where an estimated 1,000 children are killed every year.
There was applause in court when Judge Basheer Waglay read out the guilty verdicts in a court in Cape Town.
Ms Rodrigues' lawyer had argued that it had been an attempted kidnapping gone wrong.
"We are glad for the decision," the baby's grandfather Vernon Norton told the Sapa news agency.
He added that the family hoped Ms Rodrigues would get life in prison in June when sentencing is due."
Some days I should just not read the papers. What the fuck is wrong with people?
