    Obviously no one knows anything because he was not there when the child died she was with a baby sitter and the arresting officer just happens to be the husband of the woman who was babysitting also the day it happend he was with his five year old son and the police interviewd him and his son said nothing happend a five year old has no intention or mind power to lie so get your facts befoore you make a obnoxious option based on nothing

    The world is color blind: mankind seems to only see the world in black and white, right and wrong. Everyone seems to forget that there is a middle ground upon which this world resides.

    Likewise, whose place is it to say that one life is more valuable than another, whether a baby/child or a grown adult? The homeless or the businessmen? The drug dealers or the doctors? The killers, rapists, hypocrites, liars, burglars, kidnappers, terrorists, hookers, or alcoholics? They are all sinners. We are all sinners.

    Those that are too hasty to judge simply fail to recognize their own sins. Further, they may not be able to admit to those by old age, assuming of course that they shy away from the arrogance they built their homes under.

    What a world it could be if everyone would accept these words for truth, for it is. And those that deny it are arrogant and egotistical. It is the mistake of all men to assume that we, as mankind, truly know anything, yet we act like we know everything.

    Regarding this boy, no one truly knows what's happened, probably not even that boy. I call him a boy because he is, and many of those commenting on his situation have shown their age and worth to the world in those comments.

    How terrible a world that this boy should have to give up the best years of his life to pay for a crime while his whole life he will pay himself back for it by refreshing the memories in his mind: the memories if all the hatred directed at him, and worse, the memories of that lost little girl. And then to think that some of the commenters think he should find his way to hell after this torture. Surely those who judged him to harshly and refuse to forfeit the grudges from their hears shall surely meet their own maker one day: Good luck.

    To those nonbelievers, keep not believing; it's obviously what you are destined for. Some are destined for greatness; others are destined for heartache. Is it for any of us to decide which? My only hope is that one person sees the world in a little color after reading this.

  • Meg

    Hey "innocent" he admitted to hurting tht child he admitted to biting her and stepping on her and hitting her head off the door frame! It was in the paper! He's a sick human being! I hope he rots in prison! It's a shame that we don't have the death penalty!

  • Kyleigh

    Why would you abuse and then kill an 18 month old baby for no reason!!!!!!!!!!Also why did you lie and say you ACCIDENTALLY KILLED that BABY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My opinion is if you made that baby suffer than you should suffer even more.I knew that baby and she was so adorable and did not deserve to die!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm shore everyone agrees with me.......

    IT was a girl. Her heart problem did not beat her up in the way that she was hurt. She was not unhealthy from a heart problem she had months ago!!! Stop making excuses for him. He may have snapped!! Whatever his problem was he knows what happened and he's the one who has to live with it!

  • freehim

    The baby had a heart problem its mother knew it wasn't gona make it

      Not true, but does that justify him beating her to death?

  • Fly trap

    There is 4 people that know the truth to what happened the baby killer, the mother, God, and the autopsy report. Enough said no one knows what goes on behind closed doors. Anyone can change from nice and as far as being a baby killer. You never know these days!

    Maybe he didn't admit to you Innocent but he did to police. And just because you "know" someone when their door is open, doesn't mean you know what goes on behind closed doors!
