I am generally and normally opposed to the the death penalty, but if what the prosecution says happened really did, I would make an exception for this man.

3 years just to get to the hearing phase. I assume the trial will take another 3 years for prosecutors and defense attorneys to prepare for. Justice is slow, very slow in this state.
I'm sure it will end with a plea bargain as most cases do and justice will not be served....as usual.

I heard on the radio that Nathan Sloop beat
the little boys face with a hammer after
killing him.

I don't understand how is it that such
people even exist.

The mother of this child, who should have protected him, deserves the death penalty every bit as much as Sloop does. In fact, she should get it before he does. But the prosecuters will plea bargain with her to get him. In fact, it should be the other way around. This is a most unfortunate incident.

No plea deals. Please!

The violence in American society aimed at the young and helpless is sad and discouraging. There has to be a way to tighten up the education of the young. One way would be to up the discipline levels in elementary and high schools instead of emphasizing freedom of expression. This would also then include a stricter approach to juvenile violations, witness the light sentences in Steubenville, by having a more realistic modern approach to the juvenile code. A high profile murder case in Japan saw Japan counting the age of consent to be at age 20. The victim was an 21 yr old Irish young woman at a Nicki Minaj concert and the murderer was a 19 yr old American dancer in the Hip Hop entourage of Nicki Minaj. We have to make the young accountable to the rest of society instead of liberals using behavior modification techniques in the media on that group to modernize society.

Please no death sentence! What he has coming in prison will be way more punishment than an easy death on the table at the POM.

If she didn't want him with her, why didn't she let his father keep him?
