    Oh my....

    I can't even describe how this makes me feel.

    So many things went wrong, and yet so many will not see the obvious conclusion that making things illegal does not stop criminals from doing it.

    What kind of animal shoots a kid 6 times? And it seems from the location of the wounds that the shots were aimed for the head.

    It's hard to believe people put themselves in these kinds of positions. Or that there are people that can unload their weapon into a child.

    I've seen that kind of rage before. Usually alcohol or meth related. Reason and morality go out the window. I hope (and pray!) that little girl makes it.

    What I hate to read, besides the harm to a child, which always pi$$s me off, is that the puke was arrested. I would much rather read that he was shot and killed by the police or someone, anyone.

    +1 with puppy. call me harsh, but I say shoot in the knees then let the family have at him. To me that's the only real justice this guy deserves. Wow, what a sad story.

    Just put him in jail with all the others and leak it out what he did. He won't last long.

    Another senseless shooting...

    No one can assume they are safe...anywhere...anymore. The world is full of psycho's, angry people, others just desperate for drug money and without a 'thought' of human life value...

    Stay armed...really...stay safe!

Even if they only had enough gas to get a mile or two down the road, that is what they should have done.
    That was my second thought, right after "How does dialing 9-1-1 thwart anything?"

    We all need to get out more. We think too much alike.

    Build a gallows in front of the courthouse and hang this lowlife. Leave him there as a reminder to the other scum.
    The situation will NEVER BE THE WAY YOU WANT, it WILL BE THE WAY IT IS. You must be FLEXIBLE ENOUGH TO ADAPT and just "DEAL WITH IT".
