Brian Peterson the privileged New Jersey youth who made headlines in 1996 when he and his girlfriend Amy Grossberg killed their newborn baby is out of jail, married to another woman, and living in Florida.
He spoke to The Post recently as he and his wife Jaime took a stroll in the town of Jupiter with their two dogs and showed he was in no way marking the short life of his son.

Nowadays, it's amazing if a baby-killer gets more than "community service." First, the unborn didn't count. Now, the just-recently-born don't count either. It's Peter Singer's dreamland, and snotty Brian Peterson is a fitting symbol of it.

why are these two murderers not still in prison??? Why were the sentences so light in the first place?
