Alleged getaway driver is pregnant with dead gunman's child, friends tell police
First it's her mothers fault, then she should get the death penalty? Which
is is? There is no pregnancy, so please let's not talk about
giving her baby away. If there were a pregnancy he is more than 7 years her
elder, rape in the state utah. Why would you take a baby away from a rape
victim. That is harsh. Adults are still letting this girl down with
the decision to treat her as an adult. If a 27 year old criminal
had control of your minor child would you put her away for life cause he killed
someone while she was there? What could she have done at age 17 to an already
dangerous man to her who was armed?
I don't care if this girl is 17 or 77, she was old enough to watch the
slaughter of one officer, the attempted slaughter of another, and participate in
carjackings. But not for her actions, this might have been a completely
different story. She should be charged with everything they can throw at her.
Too much leniency for criminals has turned this country into a mess. I am sorry
she had a rough life, but so have hundreds if not thousands of other people who
choose to be law abiding and choose to respect the rights of others, she did
not.The ones you should have sympathy and empathy for are her victims.
She made her decision to be his girlfriend/baby momma/wife based on the
lifestyle she was raised in and was her "NORM". Did she chose wrong? I
think so,but I have not walked in her shoes. My prayers go out for her that she
can turn her life around. She will lose child I pray it goes to a family who are
stable and can provide a safe peaceful place to grow up. I am so sorry for all
the families that his decision to go out in a blaze of glory affected. One lost
a husband and father, one lost a future and now must plan for a new future to
include this tragedy and its harm to them, others must deal with the hardest
decision their job can have, taking one life to preserve others. Now it is up to
a Jury to decide how justice will be served. Yes the charges are harsh but she
could have said no and left him for her and her baby's safety.
concreteboI'm not without sin, but I can certainly say that I have
never participated in killing anyone. Let's not let everyone out of jail
just because we all commit sins! Some sins are just a tad bit (sarcasm intended)
more severe than others. She may not have shot the gun, but she certainly aided
her boyfriend and put many people's lives in danger.
At each step in the progression of this cowardly murder/execution she failed to
make a decision which could have saved her life.Mercy?Where was her mercy for Cory Wride?She received mercy when her
life was not taken by the deputies.Justice?The wheels of
justice grind ever so slowly...but they do grind.She will eventually
receive the justice she deserves.
For those that say that she can't be charged with murder because she
didn't pull the trigger, think again. If during the commission of a felony
another party dies, then the felon can be charged with felony murder. Because
she is a minor, capital punishment is not available. I wonder why no one has
concerns that a minor is being charged as an adult. The scientific evidence is
pretty clear that a juvenile brain is still developing and generally has lesser
capacity to make correct decisions. Our law recognizes that fact when it comes
to sexual relations, but not so in instances of violence?
This is a state dominated by people who truly believe that this entire life is a
probationary period to learn and grow, and that the sacrifice of one being
allows for the forgiveness of anything, should the perpetrator repent.Ironic then, that they jump at the chance to charge a 17-year old girl as an
adult, for a murder she did not commit, but only tangentially aided. I know the
law allows for this. But it feel morally bankrupt.Charging her as an
adult seems even more depraved when one considers that the man who shot the cops
in cold blood, was statutorily raping her, regardless of consent, because the
law considers her a minor and unable to consent to sex with an adult. There's no doubt she has punishment coming, and a debt to pay. But the
commonplace zeal with which prosecutors charge kids as if they are adults is
Very well written article which shows the progression toward evil by Meagan
Grunwald. In "Merchant of Venice", Shakespeare talked about
"justice tempered with mercy". We must get back to that progression.
Justice comes first and then mercy. Her actions were evil and she made that
choice voluntarily even though influenced by her environment. She is definitely
not the victim. The victim is Officer Wride, his family, his community, and the
country which he served so proudly. "Eyes right"!
The law does make a difference in gravity when the victim is a police officer or
other servants of justice. Age is disregarded when the crime violates such
laws. They killed an officer and almost killed another one. Anybody with one
inch of brains knows that you do not attack a police officer. It was not only
one bad choice made that day. It all started with her mother harboring a
criminal under her roof. As a mother, I would harbor my pregnant daughter but
the criminal can sleep under a bridge as far as I care. I am surprised she
didn't call police to report him because he was a fugitive. What was her
mother thinking? Nevertheless, she did have the chance to leave and didn't
do it. This is a perfect example on how you can ruin your life choice after
choice. I feel bad for her but justice needs to be served. Otherwise, with this
generation, soon there will not be absolutely no respect to authority,
I am thinking about the baby if this gal is pregnant. How will that little one
survive in a family like that. Hopefully it will be given up for adoption...in a
very sealed procedure.
@benny02 @dnsubscriber, No you guys have it totally wrong !! At 17 years old
this gal has made some terrible choices but to literally ruin her life or take
it over these Bad choices is wrong! There are young people that make mistakes
and I am not defending that . How does it bring this guy back to Life ? You have
to look inside your hearts and find the kindness that our Lord Jesus Christ has
left for us to follow. Are neither of you without sin ?
Unless it can be proves she helped to plot the shooting of a cop, she ought not
be charged with murder. Accessory after the fact yes, murder no.
She is not the one who shot the deputy. She is not a murderer.She
should be charged with driving a get away car and failure to render aid.
The facts seem pretty obvious.Time for the prosecutors, judge and
jury to do their duty.The accused deserves a fair trial, and if found
guilty the maximum penalty allowed by law.No sympathy for her
parents at all, or for her unborn child who needs a better home.
If convicted she should get the death penalty if available.
Megan's parents should be in jaii along with her. Why are they allowing
their 17 year old girl date an 27 year old ex con? That wouldn't be
tolerated with my daughter.
