I am sure all of the families of the dead people appreciate your passion to keep criminals free.

So you think executing people by mistake is worth it to make sure the guilty is executed? I'll ask the same question to you that I ask all death penalty champions. If your mother/father/son or other loved one was facing the death penalty for a crime they didn't commit but got convicted due to a crappy defense or lying  wittiness, would you still support the death penalty? Think about it. What must it be like? To take that walk and get strapped down to be put to death knowing the whole time you are innocent? Is life without parole to lenient to save the innocents that are falsely accused?

Who said anything about setting criminals free?? Please don't misquote me. I support life without parole. That isn't being "free" as you say. And notice, that I am fighting to prevent an innocent person from being killed. You are fighting to risk the death of innocents to avenge someone that is already dead.

Sort of the "kill them all and let God sort them out" approach.

Ahhhh to big a stroke ....even for me.

They are responding from an emotional standpoint. When one considers the damage that can be done to innocent victims, cooler heads will prevail.

The boy died.

A 9-year-old Hagerstown boy beaten unconscious last week for taking a piece of birthday cake has died, according to Hagerstown police.  Jack Kirby Garcia, who had been taken to Children's National Medical Center in Washington, D.C., died Sunday, according to Capt. Paul Kifer. He said investigators would be meeting with the State's Attorney's Office this afternoon to discuss possible additional charges against Robert Leroy Wilson, the man charged with the Tuesday, June 30 beating of Garcia.

 

RIP, Jack.  :(

I wonder if he would have survived had his mother not turned away the ambulance the first time.

Now another Washington County child has been severely injured by an adult.

 

A Hancock man charged Friday with severely injuring a 6-year-old boy, including by kicks to the head with steel-toed work boots, was being held on $1 million bond, according to Washington County District Court records.
Aaron Jacob Vanmeter, 21, of Fleming Court, is charged with first-degree child abuse resulting in severe physical injury, as well as first-degree assault, second-degree child abuse and second-degree assault.
At 12:20 a.m. on Friday, Hancock police contacted the Washington County Sheriff's Office regarding a possible child abuse case, the statement of probable cause said. The child was initially taken to Meritus Medical Center east of Hagerstown, the document said.

 

 

The child is on "full life support."

I'll ask the same question to you that I ask all death penalty opponents. If your mother/father/son or other loved one was killed by an individual who had been previously convicted of murder and subsequently released from jail, would you still oppose the death penalty? Think about it. What must it be like? To be sitting in your own home and be put to death knowing the whole time you are don't even know the perp much less having done anything to him? Is the death penalty too severe from people who commit murder over and over again?

How about people who molest and then murder children, some under the age of 5?

Fact is the number of innocent people put to death is infinitesimally small (Approx. 4%) compared to the number of guilty people executed.
 

They are responding from an emotional standpoint. When one considers the damage that can be done to innocent victims, cooler heads will prevail.


And you response above…“ If your mother/father/son or other loved one was facing the death penalty for a crime they didn't commit…” is not an appeal to people’s emotions?

What are we going to do here, discuss this thing on a rational level or an emotional level?

Even worse is that the child has special needs.  

 

"Full life support" equals "delaying of death."

 

Aaron Vanmeter, scum thug extraordinaire, needs to spend an eternity in Hell.

So, you're saying that for every 20 guilty people executed, an innocent man gets executed as well?

 

Life without parole for first degree murder is easily 'do-able' if get rid of the non-violent drug convictions.

All three of them are going to face serious time in jail, with the murderer facing the longest.

 

Both the brother who handcuffed the child and the mother who turned the ambulance away should face depraved indifference.

Another mother's boyfriend.  The boy is autistic and, like Jack Garcia, is now in a hospital in Washington, DC.

I know.  Just documenting my claims.  Those details are now in the earlier story, but I don't recall seeing them there before.

The child victim will likely die. Some of you go to really dumb lengths to connect one happening to another. You look foolish. No, I take that back. You look stupid. You're an embarrassment to the human race.

I started reading the previous post and started shaking my head, then I got to your post...............................Thank you!

I'm hoping he meant 0.4%, because 4% is clearly NOT infinitesimal.

For those whose first thought is scoring political points when innocent children suffer the most horrific of deaths, please seek help.
