"American Justice???...Father gets 16 years for murdering his baby..

  1. If you saw my previous note about the mom given a life sentence, her husband got 25 years, and their 3 remaining children were adopted out to separate homes. NOW comes an article in the morning papers. A 26 year old dad, who beat his five month old daughter to death because she wouldn't stop crying was sentenced to 16 years. the defendant killed his daughter by banging her head against the headboard of his bed. The prosecutors presented evidence that the defendant broke the babys leg and five of her ribs weeks before the fatal head injury. The injuries were not treated and not reported to the police. He and his wife have four other children. His wife sat on a bench behind him and sobbed when he was sentenced. She was not charged with anything. She "remains his most ardent supporter." The defendant will be eligible for parole in 8 years. Compared to the mom who got a life sentence,....this is not justice...there is no justice.

    He should be shot and that mom should have her head banged against a wall for a bit. I will never understand how a mother can support someone who hurts her child in any way.

    AMEN! I would, without a moments hesitation, harm with my bare hands the individual that laid a finger on my child. Period.

    Yep, me too. As a matter of fact, I want to hurt people who hurt ANY kids. Of course, I'd then lie about it to try to keep from being arrested.

    me: "No, officer; I'll come peaceably. I'm innocent - I didn't pince that person, even though I really really wanted to. There was an accident here. This person fell down the stairs.... What? Oh, yes, four times. I asked him to stop trying to crawl back up the stairs, but he just INSISTED. No, I'm not sure HOW that telephone cord got wrapped around his neck - maybe when he was rolling down the stairs? The phone handset? How did it get in WHERE??? He must have fallen on it.... "

    *sigh*

    They were both jury trials. The first one where the mom was given a life sentence, she and her spouse were illegal immigrants. Her jury was 12 white men.

    The 2nd case, he and his wife are legal Mexican-Americans. His jury was 8 men and 4 women.

    You all are sooooooooo funny...and apropo.

    Legal citizen or not...any man who kills his child should be given the death sentence, or allowed to be killed the same way...how about we bang his head against the headboard until he dies? Hmmmm...wonder if that's his death wish about now.

    I am with you cheerfuldoer. I have always said that the only way the death penelty would be a true deterrent was to have someone know that you will suffer as much as the person you kill. I thik before someone beats someone else to death he or she might think twice if they knew they might get beaten too.
