….that sorry POS needs to go to hell now! No trial, no jail, no appeals, NOTHING! Take him to a barn full of hay, drive an 18″ spike through the back of his neck into a pinewood column while missing the spinal cord.

Ignite the hay from a remote corner and leave…

That poor little boy’s last minutes had to have been absolute and pure horror. A living person with that propensity for violence just should not exist, much less have another opportunity to walk among us.

May God rest his little, innocent soul…..
