    When will our system get things right and start protecting our children and not catering to the “rights” of the adults? What about a child’s right to life? An eye for an eye I say. Put this guy in general population with a sign saying “I killed an innocent baby.” Let the lifers take care of him the same way he took care of the baby!

    this guy was severely disturbed in the head but i had no idea it was to this extent. i know the baby's mother and chayson was her world. he was a miracle child that deserved to live so much longer. moose (nickname for suspect) will get what he deserves.
