Jeremiah Wright, left, accused of killing his 7-year-old son, Jori Lirette

Jeremiah Wright never once denied killing his son. In fact, he admitted and explained why he did it.

So why would a man take a meat cleaver and hack his own son's head off, leaving the head in his front yard to ensure that his wife would see it?

Easy answer, the 32-year-old Thibodeaux, Louisiana man said. His son was not a person. His son was, in fact, a "dummy," a "robot." He referred to the boy as an "it." "It" needed to be killed. That's what he said.

And it worked. He will not serve time in jail for this horrible, really unspeakable crime.
