Since my last post got pulled, we'll just suffice it to say that this excrement MUST be put away for a LONG time. I pray that the jury agrees. Oh yeah, get a load of that smirk. That'll be coming off real soon.

I feel sorry for the child, however...

If he were my father, I would rather drown. Believe me, I really would rather drown.
