My heart goes out to the little one. What goes through the minds of parents that have two older children to allow this to happen.

Better get a DNA test on that baby who died. Want to bet he wasnt one of the parents child?

ARGHHHHHHH

WTF is wrong with people, with these type of crimes i wish it was announced when and where they were being set free and that the police will not be in the area. Leave it to the people to dish out justice. RIP little one, it was not you fault!

The remaining children should be placed in alternative care, and the two excuses for humans shut away for the rest of their life

There is obviously something wrong with the parents. They were able to feed those other 2 kids, so this 1 y/o child needs to be taken care and fed like those two. I'm guessing that they starved their son for selfish reasons.

This piece of news has pretty much ruined my day.

My sentiments exactly.

So they have the decency to call an ambulance because something is wrong with their son but never feed him?

This has happened a few times over the years here. What sort of sentencing did those parents get?

That's at least the third time we see news about parents starving their children in a few months. What the hell is happening ?

This poor wee lad obviously found himself in a four way coin flip between pachinko, smokes and beer.

These two degenerates should be banged up for a looooong time.

Parents who continue to smoke despite having children are unfit parents.

But they will cry in front of the judge and tell him they didn't mean to kill him they just forgot to feed him so they will get a suspended sentence because they have to take care of the other two kids "We're going to let you go just don't murder any more of your children"

Wow Michael Jackson!!

Wow, because you are probably correct.

For once I hope I'm not correct

Probably crying too much.

They should be locked up and slowly starved, until they weigh less than half the average bodyweight for their age. See how they like that!

Another day, another parent (or pair, in this case) killing their kids. What on earth is going on here?

Crime against kids is not Japan-only problem, idiots like this pair happen in all countries. The important thing is to lock up such individuals before they do real damage. What a pity the little Haruto is too late for that. RIP.

Maybe they actually thought milk was enough to survive. Maybe the kid refused to eat. From what's been reported, it's not like they were trying to starve him completely. And they did call for help.

So no death penalty. Not even incarceration. There are two other little ones to think about.

And I do agree with Dango, if you need a license to drive or operate a forklift, you need a license to raise a kid.

I feel so disappointed the "city life" creates heartless parents like them. I lived in a very poor country to compare Japan, but I could see many humble parents they didn't eat well to give food to their children. That's what city has shadow life part I feel agony for the children.

Japan needs more children for the future, but frequent tragedies like this doesn't give much hope.
