Only in OUR country....
So much for eye-for-an-eye. So much for holding people accountable for their actions. This article (excuse my language) pisses me off. I read it last night and wanted this guy to experience the same hell he put this little girl through. BTW... this happened in Clayton, MO which is about 2hr away from where I live. This article was SOOOO important that it made it onto the 8th page of my local newspaper.
CLAYTON, Mo. (AP)
A St. Louis County man has been sentenced to 32 years in prison for the death of a 2-year-old girl who suffered burns and a severe beating.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports (http://bit.ly/L8F4K7) 35-year-old Marquicio Johnson was convicted in April of second-degree murder, child endangerment and two counts of child abuse. The Hazelwood man was sentenced Thursday in St. Louis County Circuit Court.
Johnson was accused in the December 2009 death of Orionis Barron-Taylor at the home of her great-aunt, who was Johnson's girlfriend. he had been watching the little girl while her great-aunt worked an overnight shift as a nurse.
Prosecutors said the toddler died from swelling of the brain as a result of being beaten by Johnson, who waited almost an hour to call for help.
32 years. WOW, he may have 30+years left of life when he gets out. This little girl just lost all of her's. I guess that's fair...
And we wonder why God doesn't bless America.
Some days I'm absolutely disgusted to live in this country- don't get me wrong, I'm a proud American, but TRUE AMERICANS don't do things like this-- SO GET THE HELL OUT!
We just had a 2 year old drown in a neighbor's pool in our small town. The grandpa was watching him and used the bathroom, in an instant the little boy ran to the neighbor's pool jumped in and fell under the solar cover. I know it's a lot different than Tator's post but just as sad. I hate little ones being lost!!!!
I agree Tator and i wish somebody would pass tougher child laws.If your convicted of harming a child(beating,molesting)imho it should be automoatic life with no parole.If ur a multiple offender you should be put to death.I wonder if people really know how many child molesters live close to them,i believe most people would be astounded.There is no rehab for these people and they do not deserve a second chance.They should be put to death not put back in society!!!
I could vote for spiker any day of the week. We start whacking these morons and stuff would start happening less and less.
Anybody that causes the death of somebody should be given the death penalty in the same nature that he/she caused for the victim. In this case the guy should be beaten till his brain swells and burn the crap out of him as well.
I completely understand how God tells us not to "judge" other people, but in this case, this sentence for this animal was not correct. I'm all for the "eye for an eye" option and that's what I stand by. Like TG said, if he beat this innocent, defenseless, helpless girl to death (AFTER BURNING HER SEVERELY) then he need to be beaten to death.
My question is this... how can this be SECOND degree murder? Comon. He burned her and then beat her to D E A T H. How long does one "get" to premeditate an action? In my opinion, as soon as he started burning her, he was attempting murder. Therefore, he had it in his mind that he was going to kill her before he burned her. Therefore, it was premeditated. Therefore, it was FIRST DEGREE MURDER. Wow, maybe I should be a judge.
I'll tell you one thing, if I were a judge, we wouldn't have cushy prisons like we do now because of stupid "human rights". In my opinion, you LOSE your human rights when you are locked up for murder, rape, burglary, incest, assault, etc.... ISN'T THAT THE WHOLE POINT OF PRISON????
This pile of crap, just got FREE meals, room and board, exercise, health care, and anything else he wants for the next 32 years. Heck, maybe Obama will make it to where this guy can get some good retirement benefits from us hard working AMERICANS once he gets out since I'm sure he'll be unaccustomed to the world in 2044. Poor guy...
God Bless Orionis Barron-Taylor. May her sole rest in Heaven above and may Jesus welcome her with His open hands and heart as she is welcomed HOME.
Reading these kind of posts gets me a little upset so I have to avoid responding but I hope the scumbag rots in hell.
BB- I agree,, what do you think I felt like when I read that, and having a 10month old baby at home? PLUS,,, seeing this story on the 8th page of our newspaper like it's no big deal. IRRITATED me as well.
Ditto what BB said....
