“By that logic there would be no psychology. The reason we can helped depressed people today is because we have studied previous depressed people in the past. Yes SOME people are beyond help but that does not mean we can't learn things from studying them. ”
“I hope they do not murder him. It would be a shame. To often these types of people commit suicide and no one has the chance to study them and understand what makes people like that tick. Now before you attack me with "pure evil" and what not think about this.
If we can see why he did what he did we might be able to prevent it from happening again. We might discover tell tail signs and be able to prevent these things and have prevention for possible future killers instead of interventions for future victims.”

“Thats a waste of time. Bottom line is there are people out there who just get joy out of hurting others. There is no point in studying them to try and figure it out. Every person is different so whatever the reason for Holmes is completey different from others.
Just know people are sick and some people can't be helped.”
“It's not a hating. The media portraits women that could not have their thighs touch if they wanted to. This is simply to show that the majority of thighs on this planet have cellulite, sports, touch in the middle, and jiggle a bit.
Bless you if yours don't do that but that simply makes you a thigh minority and thighs don't discriminate :)”
“Wow so yeah let us just kill her and everybody else with a psychological disorder who does something wrong! What is wrong with you people? Why do people turn off their brains when it comes to crimes against children? This is why I am glad that the public has NO say in judiciary matters.
Yes what she did is F**ked up, but instead of burning her at a stake and wisher for her damnation for eternity we should ask our selves, "what lead to this? How can we prevent this? What needs to change in our society as a whole?"”

“Julia; when two adults rape a baby, there questions that need to be answered, such as why the monstermom had custody of a child that resulted from ANOTHER rape, for example.
But that does not mean that we have a moral obligation to keep these pieces of garbage alive. The state drops bombs on people who are not baby-rapists, why do we feel so compelled to protect these two?
The message sent is that for the most part, if a victim is powerless, you can pretty much get away with whatever sick thing occurs to you. The worst thing that can happen to you is on par with the punishment for drug offenses- that's why the monsters feel so safe among us.”

“No, not her and everyone else with a personality disorder. Her and people who are monsters that rape babies. You consider repeatedly raping an INFANT simply doing "something wrong?"
Who cares what led to it? At this point, this creature is already gone and can spend the rest of her life being tortured for all I care.”

“I don't see how her sentence was a knee-jerk reaction to her having a psychological disorder. It seemed to me that her specific case was carefully addressed and argued.
Sometimes, a mental illness makes someone unsafe to participate in society, and we can't ignore those situations.”

“Please dont have any children Julia. We dont need more people like you running around. What needs to change in our society is for people like you to open your eyes and see what is really going on out in the world. How can we prevent it? By making an example of this horrible woman so that others who might do something like this will think twice because they know there is a consequence to their actions. First this sick woman raped a mentally challenged child, the boy was 16 that is why i call it rape, statutory rape. At that point had she been penalized accordingly her baby would have never been subject to the horrific ordeal. I am sure some dork asked then how can we prevent this, what needs to change etc. and look what happened.”

I take this response to mean that you are personally willing to step up and pay the state what it will cost to house, feed, and provide all medical care for this person? Her sentence has already been passed. Sixty years. She won't be rehabilitated. She will not pass go, or receive two hundred dollars. She is a permanent fixture of a correctional facility until the day she dies.
Based on information obtained from State Higher Education Executive Officers, it costs roughly $16,000 to pay for one inmate per year. Multiply that by 60 and the overwhelming cost to take care of this monster is $960,000. Do you have that kind of money? Do you think that the public has no right to say how their collective one million tax dollars is spent?
"Damnation for eternity," is a statement based on mythology. "The public has NO say in judiciary matters." Government of the people, for the people and by the people." Look that one up in your Funk & Wagnalls! "Why do people turn off their brains?" I don't know, Julia. You seem to be pretty well versed in that. Why don't you explain to the rest of us who know what to do with a baby raping monster.”
“I like it, and Americans are prude. Next time just to test something, post a picture of her holding a semi-automatic, I bet no one will complain about that.”

“Not so sure about that Julia. Anyway.. why post a beautiful family pic for millions that don't even know you or could care less.. I am sure there are other photos that would have better served his article. The pic is wonderful there is no issue for me there. I just think that some personal photos should remain in the private domain.”
“It does take two, to end a relationship. It is a valid question, "what did she do to make him feel that this was the only way he could brake up with her". Was it the nicest way? No.
However, I am sure she did her part to the unhappiness that was between them, just that she did not want to see it, judging by the text.”

“Julia, bless you.
These are times of rapid and often surprising change. Many of the old ways of thinking and doing are rapidly losing validity - whilst I have no wish to undermine Eric's point of view, for example, I have to say that modern life seems to be less about class and more about communication - across all boundaries, cultures and classes.
Our global situation, in my opinion, leaves us no time for finger-pointing and blame. We have seen where the 'established' ways lead us and we have a duty now to oppose the personal greed which has always created imbalance but these days threatens our very society. We must do this now or our children will suffer a very bleak future indeed.”
“Many comments i am reading here are a disgrace. How many of you live or have ever been to the neighborhood that is being talked about? Does any one here remember the rioting after the Rodney King incidence? I am not saying that violent rioting and looting are the solution, but it is understandable that people are upset if their situation is bad and they see no way out. In a social democratic country it is part of the governments job to take care of the not so wealthy or down right poor. So many comments are negative towards immigrants or as some of you call them "free loathers" and "non tax payers". What would you have them do? Have a political system as the oh so grate USA? One that leaves people in need without health care, of jobless benefits? I apologize if this sounds like rambling.”

“47 million Americans get welfare which may include one or all of: housing allowance, food stamps, and the like.
14 million Americans are unemployed. Once their measly unemployment benefits run out they are eligible for -- nothing! People use up every bit of savings and retirements and still may lose their homes. The unemployed have no health insurance. So I suppose a good many if they have a serious health issue will just have to die.
