I have to agree with annon ymous. How can anyone harm a child and when its your own and you do thatRead More type of harm to your own child. Jail - 20 years that's a joke - that's play time for someone like that!

I call a spade a spade Laura. That's the problem. People are so afraid of "judgement".Read More Let's not hurt anyone's "feelings". Believe me. This had been going on probably most of the child's life and I'm sure someone was aware of it but they didn't want to "judge" so they did nothing. And yes, I'm darn near perfect compared to this piece of manure.

life in prison is to good for this low life he should be tied to four horse and pulled apart thisRead More would be more fitting to life with parol in 30 years..

I'm so sick of bleeding hearts thinking that prison is good enough for these psychos! I just do notRead More understand the mentality that if we, as a society, condone the death penalty that we are somehow barbaric, sick or vengeful. What is wrong with you??? Do you really think it makes us a better society for continuing to support people like this killer for the rest of their lives? Do you understand how much money that costs our country EVERY DAY? I understand that perhaps you feel that there are some innocent people sitting in prison right now and, for those few, we need to be cautious in exacting final justice. However, this psycho admitted that he did it...described it in detail...he is guilty...there is no doubt about that. Furthermore, there is NO...let me repeat that...NO help for him. There is no amount of rehabilitation, no drug, no shock therapy, no surgery, no magic drink...NOTHING...that will help him or change him. I have worked in a correctional setting for many years...with some of the worst criminals in history...(who, by the way, have since been executed)...I have seen them on a daily basis, talked to them, listened to them, watched their daily actions. Trust me when I tell you, there is NOTHING that will change them and I have not lost one second of sleep over their executions...in fact, the opposite is true...I sleep better knowing they are GONE...gone permanently...not just 'put away' for a while. I understand that you think you are being compassionate...you are not. It is a service to society, in soooo many ways, to be rid of them. THEY are the true animals...let me take that back...they aren't even animals...I have two dogs...they have never hurt anyone...I value their lives more than any one of these sick individuals. I can't call them people, I can't call them animals...both are above what they are. There really is no name for it...but I will assure you...they have NO place in society...even in an incarcerated society. Judge me if you will...call me harsh if you must...my opinion comes from seeing and knowing...and you can take my statements how ever you wish...but I know what I know...and you can take that to the bank.

40 years is quite suitable punishment to make criminal think, and think next time he will robRead More someone, and sends a message to all potential evil doers out there!
Brian April 16, 2014 at 02:51 am
Suntoucher: If you've ever been robbed, especially violently, 40 years would seem about right. It'sRead More unacceptable. Imagine if you were the victim. Let him work for parole and show he's a changed man. In Cobb, there's no revolving door in prison, which is why we don't have as much crime as Fulton County.

I think it's BECAUSE Wheeler is an unusual place to begin a life like this that it was tagged.Read More Sounds like some of the seniors over there are into cocaine and marijuana like they are everywhere else. Wheeler is not immune to these things, nor should it be vilified for the trappings of this youth. It's important that people know that these things can start anywhere instead of hiding one's head under a rock.

You're absolutely right: Scandanavia has much stronger gun restrictions than we do, and they haveRead More much less violent crime. Couldn't agree with you more.

You can't pray to God something bad will happen to someone. God doesn't/won't do that. You can prayRead More that he finds deliverance from his evil and disgusting ways and that he is able to repent for his sins while he serves his sentence. I don't wish ill will on anyone, that's not God's plan for us. But I pray for his soul that he accepts the Lord into his life and the victim finds peace and healing in his incarceration. Really, nobody wins in this situation. They both need healing.
