    When I think of all the people in this country who would love to adopt a baby and are put on long waiting lists and this scum is allowed to have one to kill, it makes me sick.
    If you can’t deal with the baby, give it to a family who wants a child and will take care of it.

    This message is to address everyone who have and will leave comnents on here concerning this story. You or I have no right to judge anyone. You should know the story first before you make a comment. Thats an issue I have with news reporters and social media, quick to state what they believe are the facts and publishing it for the world to criticize. Instead of your demeaning, ignorant and simple minded comments that you post for the world to see lets take a moment to think about this mans family who may see it. They are going through enough I am sure, they dont need your input on a matter that truly doesnt concern you or I. Lets focus on uplifting his family as well as him getting the help he may need.


    First of all “concerned”, its on the news and everyone here has a right to their own opinion. Freedom of speech, remember that? Secondly, I could care less what the media is leaving out of this, we know the basics. A baby is dead and this man is responsible. What else is there to know? I don’t care if he wants to plead “mentally insane” or he was on drugs. Fact of the matter is that infant was assaulted and the police found enough evidence to hold this man responsible. So how about YOU keep your comments to yourself. We all have the right to state our opinion, you don’t like it? Don’t comment anything.
