I came across this horrific story, and its horrific headline, via Language Log, and so much is wrong here I can barely begin to comment; I will confine myself, however, to a single point, which is --

The infant boy sealed in concrete by a Brooklyn couple charged with pimping out his enslaved hooker mom, was beaten to death, the Daily News has learned.

How charming of the Daily News to call this woman a hooker when she was forced into sexual slavery by the evil scum who murdered her child and enslaved her.

I think we have a word for this, and I bet you know what it is.
