This is a case where an eye for an eye would be ac eatable to me.

I'm sure there must be a reason, but how about explaining why it has taken two years to get this done?

Re: "I'm sure there must be a reason . . . ."

It took two years because of a comical, hidebound, 17th-century legal system that is becoming increasingly irrelevant in the lives of real people, and which was inflicted on us by elitist liberal jurists and academics, in a demonic and incestuous relationship with the ACLU and a pro-crime defense bar -- people whose posh, ill-gotten lifestyle is built on a foundation of assisting criminals in mostly in delaying, but sometimes even avoiding the just consequences of their actions.

There's no other reason.

@procuradorfiscal We'll if you want to live under a draconian legal system where the rights of all individuals are not respected, please feel free to move to North Korea, Iran, Burma, etc.


It is an unbelievable crime. I can't imagine how anyone could want to harm a child. It's despicable and sickening. I know the mother is saying that she's a victim too, but I hope both of these monsters get the death penalty.

Good grief!

More paranoid fantasies from Procura . . .

A bit too strident for me, but you are factual. We have become a society focused on very expensive compassion for the criminal and not the victim. Another fact is that capital punishment has been priced out of the market by these same people. Life without parole in a very spartan prison is the best we can do and there should be an expedited pathway for these cases.
