Find all guilty parties, put

Find all guilty parties, put a bullet in each of their knees, and then one in each of their heads. I do not want them rehabilitated, nor do I want to feed and clothe their sorry butts. They are a worthless blight on society.

AMEN RIP!! I agree 100%. They

AMEN RIP!! I agree 100%. They should NOT be given prison sentences to live off the taxpayers and have a comfortable time for the rest of their lives. They deserve to suffer and feel the same as they inflicted 5 times over.

I agree rip, but how about

I agree rip, but how about start first by using a hammer on each testicle. After each testicle has been completely crushed then put a bullet in the knees. In my opinion, there is no amount of torture that would be enough for the beating of a one year old child. What is the world coming to? This country is digressing more and more each day!!!!

America is one violent place

Unpublished

America is one violent place and getting worse, but thats how "they" want it, so one reaps what one sow. More guns and more weapons will keep us safe. Ha! First identify the problem. This story is the result of the problem not being properyl identified.

This kind of thing is just

This kind of thing is just going to happen more frequently. I know regular, everyday people don't want to think about this but your chances of being robbed and/or mudered are going up everyday. It doesn't matter who you are, where you live, or how old or young you are. These lowlife scumbag thieves and thugs will hit you at the first opportunity and you may not live through it. Arm yourself, train yourself, and keep that weapon within reach wherever you are. Even in the sanctity of your own home. It only takes seconds to crash through the average exterior door and you should be ready to shoot at the first signs of a break-in. Shoot to kill. Don't be afraid of putting a few bullet holes in your walls or door. Holes in walls patch easily and the door will have to be replaced anyway after the thugs break it down. No one wants to admit it but we are already involved in a battle for our lives with low life thugs who feel entitled to take what you have and they don't mind killing you in the process. In fact, sometimes they kill you just for fun. It's time to take bake our streets, malls, parking lots, and neighborhoods. The cops can't, the courts WON'T, but WE CAN. YES WE CAN. CHANGE!!!

justus - the problem has been

justus - the problem has been identified but that segment of population refuses to take responsibility for themselves and respect the rights and property of others and refuses to stop being lazy, to educate themselves, to stop expecting handouts, to get jobs, to use birth control, to raise their children, and become productive members of society. Unfortunately our lawmakers won't institute mandatory capital punishment for violent felons and mandatory capital punishment for 2 time convicted felons and clean up America. Get your guns people. We are going to have to clean it up one thug at a time.

How can anyone beat a 1 year

How can anyone beat a 1 year old child.......They could have put the child in another room or something......I was very disturbed about this story due to the fact that I have a 1 year old son who I would K*LL for.....I agree with Mad Max....We need to arm ourselves so that criminals will think twice about coming into our homes and taking what they want and sometimes our lives. My wife is sitting right next to me now and I am telling her that we need a gun.

As the mother of a 7 month

As the mother of a 7 month old son who is totally defenseless, I fail to see how any "human being" could beat up a 1 year old. Our country/world is going to h*ll in a handbasket.

Believe me we didn't read

Believe me we didn't read about this idiocy when I was young. Of course back then we had a little thing called the Electric Chair and it made people think twice before killing someone. It wasn't a pleasant sight to see a prisoners eyes burst into flames of see them deficate on themselves. And they knew it would hurt. Now we put them in jail with rec, educ, and good food for life. What a change.

You wonder what's happening

You wonder what's happening to people and this world. What do you expect. We have turned our backs on God, so he's just letting us do our own thing. Not a pretty picture is it, but you'd think we'd learn...No, we just keep living in sin and it's only going to get worse. Scooby, you said Our country/world is going to h*ll in a handbasket...You got that exactly right. But thank God there is victory and something better for all who believe in Him.
