Hold your breath all you want. I don't believe anyone has suggested it's "okay" to kill but it still seems you have already judged.

Like i stated on another article...we need to start thinning out the herd. If you can not live by any sort of law and mingle within society with out STABBING an 11 WEEK OLD...there is no place on this earth for you...white black or otherwise...stop using up the valuable oxygen, water and other resources we will start running short on.


Can I get an AMEN?


yes you can .. and a Hallelujah!!

Don't judge you...

Like I said if you don't have all the facts keep holding your breathe until you pass out who cares. You don't know if someone was holding the child when he went to stab the individual that he was aiming for and he stabbed the child as a result of this not saying what he did was right at all he should of used better judgement. But all this hanging bull is not how we handle thing in this country God is the only judge and jury that matters in this life and the next!!!!!!!!


In the end it doesn't really matter whether the intent was to stab someone else. The only thing that matters is the result, an 11wk old was murdered. Either way he was going to kill someone. In your mind it is ok as long as the intent was to murder and adult? People like you are the problem with this world. From the original article: "Within seconds, the chaos accelerated when Denzel Castile, 19, broke away and struggled with a woman over the 11-week-old victim, Athena Castile.

Then Castile wrestled the infant away and ran down a hallway in the home.

That's when police realized he had a steak knife and was stabbing the child, said Detective Sgt. Dana Newell."

Doesn't sound to me like he was stabbing at anyone other than the infant he was holding.


What it does sound like is there may be some type of drug involved. We just don't know so what is wrong with waiting for the facts? This is not normal behavior for him or anyone. To do this with the police there really suggests he was on something and it did not necessarily have to be an illegal drug!




Better judgement? OMG!! "Don't judge"...I think you need to clearly seek immediate mental help. You are clearly roll down the river DENIAL! You need to re-read the rationalization you just commented. And God will judge you too for your enabling, consent and toleration for these EVIL deeds. I pray for your soul.


Wow. Really? Should have used better judgement? It's a shame we don't hang murderers anymore because he absolutely deserves it. As far as I'm concerned, he can't die fast enough. I just hope however they execute him that it is extremely painful.

Don't judge you...

What he did was wrong and he will pay but I don't respect what he did at all even if it was a accident let me make that clear.


Oh, yeah! I accidentally stabbed my baby too cause I was going for someone else. Opps my bad...Your delusional!

I know it's not my place to judge him either - that's reserved to the judicial system, and God Himself quite frankly. I don't think it would matter what color he is, black, white or purple with pink polka dots!! I don't care one way or the other about that. The only thing I know for sure is that an INNOCENT 11 WEEK OLD BABY is lying in a morgue!! From what I've read - and I'll agree that the paper doesn't always give the best of reports - there was a lot of fighting going on to get the man accused of this horrendous crime into custody. We can all put on a good face when we meet up with people that have known us for a long time, especially those that we respect. But in private we're a completely different person. No I won't judge him, but I can't feel anything but contempt for the person - whoever it might be and I'm not specifying anyone - that would take the life of a child in any way, but especially such a horrendous and I can only hope that it was a quick and painless death so that the baby didn't suffer. No child should have to do that.


If Don't judge you wasn't real the posts would be almost funny! The scum bag is a good church going christian, but was attempting to stab someone who was holding a child??? Did you really read what you typed!

Take him back to the zoo!


I think you are referring to Samuel L. Jackson!

R.I.P. sweet little angel.


The whole problem arises with the fact that very few people have any morals. If you don't respect your own body, how can you respect another's?

Don't judge you...

Of course I read that's why I have an education smart $$$ let me ask you a question have you ever done anything wrong in your life?@ YoMomma lol well I'm pretty sure you have what I'm saying is this he's not a thug never been in trouble before he was raised with a loving family and was in college if you know anything on how demons work then you would understand what I mean but I'm certain your spiritual understanding doesn't so this conversation is pointless pray that God enlightens you @Commenter I can say what I please I know many individuals with Phd's that swear your point is?


Don't judge you...., Resorting to this kind of comeback does not make you look so educated.

doggie mom

@ Don't Judge Unless you really have something worth reading please stop commenting. He took a life whether intentional or not, he is no longer a intitled to his life. You sound uneducated and ridiculous. I could care less if he was in the college's church aiming at God himself...he no longer deserves to live with the rest of us. I have made mistakes however NOT ONE INVOLVED MURDERING SOMEONE! If you were as educated as you profess you would see that is a ridiculous excuse. If you were that child's mother, would you feel the same way?


For one saying that he had demons take over and that made him do this is a cop out. I would prefer to believe he had a psychotic break with reality although I wouldn't advise him to use that in his defense. Doesn't work well here in Ohio.As for your education, I again would prefer to think that if you are capable to construct a thesis to receive your PHD, you would have a moderate understanding of punctuation. And attempting to explain and/or present this young man as a good, Christian person at this point in time is ridiculous and a thorough waste of time. No one will listen to anything you have to say in regards to his role in the death of this baby. Our emotions are running too high. And, unfortunately, what has been occurring in Sandusky and Norwalk in the past year is getting well, disgusting. There have been too many of our children beat and murdered and both communities are beyond horrified. My heart is breaking.


Who's the scumbag who answered the phone and said that everything was fine and no help was needed?? Unbelievable. Truly, truly sad


Apparently there was no help needed when she hung up. It was just a family fight. The stabbing seems to have taken place after the police arrived. Read other articles.


I didn't see that final update. The article I read earlier just said they arrived to a chaotic scene and called for backup. My bad
