I don't care the race, the creed, the gender, or the religion ...this deserves the worst punishment next to child abuse/molestation. I don't care who you are, where you're from, or what you've done. To prey upon a defenseless being, especially an infant, to achieve your own means, is ruthless, careless, selfish, and plain disgusting.

I know I have brought this up about hangings and its ment to apply to anyone regardless of race , or sex ,If you take the right to life away from someone regardless if you kill an child or an adult , you should give up your right to life as well .

I dont know if any of you ever watched westerns , but back in them days , they gave you a lawyer and a trial , just like today and when you are convicted you hung and it was a lot faster then it is today
Somehow I think that if we went back to them days you would see a lot less killings and you would not hear of helpless children being killed . The laws in todays world are way too lax and something needs to be done , And if you are convicted regardless of your race or sex, you hang .If anyone else can think of a better way ,let them speak or if they can not , dont say anything
I am on this blob shooting ideas to save lifes regardless if the are adults or children and regrdless of race or sex
You know that in Erie county alone , we have had at least 5 children death in the last couple of years , and if I recall we went over the national senses of deaths , on other words we surpassed the national level
If something is not done to contain these killings , then people are going to think that people in ohio can get away with murder , plain and simple , then what are we going to do ?

God Of Thunder

This has nothing to do with religion, or a god or anything else. If there was a god, it would not allow this to happen. "Free will" or not.. This has to do with a cracked out scuumbag who stabbed an 11 week old baby to death. No excuses. No reason worthwhile. End of story. Put him back in the middle of the strreet and let's do an eye for an eye on him..

This is a bible lesson for the "christian" individuals supporting this murderer!
Scriptures from the Bible:
“Whoever sheds the blood of man, by man shall his blood be shed, for God made man in his own image."
“Whoever strikes a man so that he dies shall be put to death."
“Whoever takes a human life shall surely be put to death."
“If anyone kills a person, the murderer shall be put to death on the evidence of witnesses. But no person shall be put to death on the testimony of one witness. Moreover, you shall accept no ransom for the life of a murderer, who is guilty of death, but he shall be put to death."

Enough said...save your breath and court appearances! There are plenty of witnesses.

I saw no such person supporting this thing, I merely state that sin is running wild and it is, immoral acts drugs drinking, crack whatever is the sin of choice is contributing to the down fall, and the bible states you have to obey the laws of the land ( laws in which man put in place) as well as God's law.

Old testament, different dispensation. Have a Bible study before you quote so you know what you're talking about.

Please use the King James Version, if you are supposedly quoting scriptures.

It almost sounds like this man had some sort of psychotic break. I mean a real mental illness, not some made-up insanity defense. So tragic!

saturnina813

Idc who knew him if he was a nice person or not, that's still an innocent life that was taken away from their mother. I don't care if he was on something or not or if he had issues. Charles Manson had issues, they're locked up, but it's "okay" for this boy to be off the hook because "he was a respectable young man"? Yeah okay. If it were anybody else in a different city or state and you didn't know him you would call them a monster and say that he should burn for what he has done.

Who the hell said it was ok?

Anyone know where the parents of this poor baby were?

Brainiac2007

First Of All Id Say Give Him The Same Treatment He Gave That Baby No MaTter What Color, Its Ridiculous That People Are Trying To Make This About Race, A Black Man Killed A Black Baby So Please Use Your Head And Understand The Opinions Given Here Are Solely Related To His Actions! THIS COWARD KILLED AN INNOCENT BABY, And His Actions Are What Brought About The Angry Responses. I Don't Think Any Circumstance That Could Have Brought About These Actions CCould Make A Good Argument For Stabbing To Death A Baby, So You Bible Thumpers That Want To Make Excuses For This Loonatick Are Proving That Even ChristiansAre Hypocritical, ITs Pathetic And I Feel Sorry For This Baby The Rest Of The Irresponsible Adults Are On Their Own!

eriemom

I need to ask this, so please don't take it as a criticism: Why do all of the words that you key start with a capital? On a phone or what?

santown419

Its not what brought on the angry responses. It doesnt matter if a negative or positive article was on here you would still see them.

I am really astonished by all of this. I have read the articles as well as looked at pictures and not to judge, but why is no one crying that an 11 week old infant was just stabbed? I don't understand why he grabbed the infant and stabbed her multiple times. I really hate when there are soo many unanswered questions :-( RIP

I don't think that there is one person who's heart does break for that precious baby! I just think that it's wrong to judge cut and dry on anything this tragic without knowing more. This is a lot for even the most hard, heartless and hateful person to do. I just think that we should consider the mental state of a young man that does something so unthinkable. If he's mentally ill, that makes it even more tragic.

The part no one is telling you is the coward ran before the cops got there. The Law Enforcement agencies in Erie County were incredible from helping the baby to locking down a portion of the hospital and when the coward ran from them they stopped at nothing to bring him in.

santown419

It was his cousin. And what facebook page he has two and not one time did anyone defend him by saying you are in my prayers is that defending him? Why make up sh** even when others can see it also >

Ted was a charming man. People loved Ted, especially women. Ted was very intelligent. Ted earned a Bachelor's degree in Psychology. Then Ted went on to be one of America's most famous serial killers. Yes, Ted Bundy was a good boy and a good man. He said yes mam, no sir, please, and thank-you. And then they executed him in the electric chair.

Drug and alcohol use/abuse are not valid excuses to commit murder and will not hold up in a court of law.

I wouldn't hold my breath on the insanity defense either. He wanted to kill himself while fighting with police. He knew what he did was wrong so I don't think he can plead insanity. However, if he does and goes to a state hospital for the criminally insane, if he ever gets out I doubt he will ever be able tor relax if he comes back to this area.

May justice prevail because I really don't care what was wrong with him. He killed a baby. I am not God. I don't have to have mercy for him. May God have mercy on his soul because not many others will.

CrissySnow

Excellent post. I could not agree more. If people would read, educate themselves about FACTS, and REALLY see no color, they would also see the truth of what you said. I could not care less about his excuse nor circumstance, nor whether he went to confession weekly. Makes no difference to me. Lots of folks have a "bad" life or a "snap". Many experiment with drugs and many continue to live a complete life of drugs and continue the abuse. However, very few, except the few monsters, kill ANYONE, and certainly not a BABY.

If someone told you that a portion of the US population that numbers only 12% commits 50% of all the murders and violent crime in America wouldn't that indicate to anyone capable of intelligent thought that something is very wrong with many if not most of those from that portion of the population

On the flip side, if there was a group of the US population that is almost 70% of the population but that groups contributes only 25% of the MURDERS and VIOLENT CRIME, that group is doing something right

After all there is almost NEVER an excuse for murder, easily 99.5% of murders are NOT the self-defense/justified kind.

NOTE - it is statistically IMPOSSIBLE for those two groups to be "equal" unless there is a major negative difference with the 12% group that contributes 50% of murders and violent crimes

Is you HIGH? Sleeping in the arms of jesus???

A few questions:

Is it hard for baby angels to sleep peacefully in the arms of Jesus if they received massive fatal knife wounds as a living baby?

Wouldn't the mourners be more blessed if the baby hadn't been savagely murdered by its own CUZZ?

DO stab wounds interfere with baby angel wings?

Does a baby who gets stabbed to death and go to heaven stay a baby angel for eternity? (that would kind of suck to be 11 months old forever!)

Do 11 month old baby angels suddenly get full consciousness when they become angels?

If so, can fully conscious baby angels carry on adult conversations with other angels?

and IF SO, do they have adult voices?

Where is Jesus and this new baby angel?

Back when the entire Earth was ignorant of science, the Earth, the Solar System, nature, the universe, etc. people yearning for an explanation of those puffy white clouds in the sky that no human could ever physically reach came up with the notion that GOD SITS ON THE CLOUDS ON A BIG GOLDEN THRONE WITH JEEBUS ON THE RIGHT HAND (AND MARY ON THE LEFT FOR THE CATHOLICS, OR WITH GOD AND JESUS AT HER FEET IF YOU BUY INTO THE QUEEN OF HEAVEN WHO MADE GOD THEORY)

BUT, most of us humans learned starting a couple centuries ago that there IS NO HEAVENLY CITY IN THE CLOUDS (except on Planet Bespin before the Empire took over)

So if there really is no bearded glowing jesus walking around on the clouds where is he and all the other angels?

Do ugly people turn beautiful when they become angels?

And according to CHRISTIANS if ANYONE CONFESSES THEIR SINS, REPENTS and TURNS from SIN they are granted everlasting life in heaven.

TECHNICALLY, HITLER COULD BE IN HEAVEN if, at the last moment in his bunker, he suddenly realized that it was wrong to kill Jews (even though Jews can't get into heaven unless they accept christ as their savior) and IF HITLER BECAME FILLED WITH MASSIVE REMORSE, recalled his CHRISTIAN upbringing and CONFESSED TO JESUS, ACCEPTED HIM AS SAVIOR, before dying

HITLER COULD BE HOLDING THIS NEW SLEEPING BABY ANGEL IN HIS ARMS before passing him off to the ABE VIGODA ANGEL to Hitler can cook some HEAVENLY HASH for ANGEL DINNER that night in their HEAVEN CONDO.

SO, do baby angels sleep MORE or LESS peacefully in HITLER'S ARMS VERSUS JESUS' ARMS?

Swiftshot

I'm really not sure what his defense is going to be.... "The baby wouldn't stop crying". I find it hard to comprehend the stupid comments. I really don't care how respectful he was before he did this. I'm almost speechless. I don't have any room in my heart for a baby killer

SuspectBlackMale

Welcome to the world of the modern day black and the self-loathing liberal white. When a black commits a heinous crime, in fact even people like the MUSLIM TERRORIST boston bombers did their terrible act, LIBERALS LOOK FOR REASONS TO JUSTIFY THE CRIME. TO them a dead BLACK baby doesn't matter. ALl that matters is finding out WHY DENZEL-THE-BABY-KILLER did it and get him HELP and a hug to get him back on the streets ASAP
