  1. Jaimoe, he will probably get Harrised and let out. No room for scum like this. Who beats their child to death? This is why there is a death penalty. Unfortunately, California prosecutors and politicians disobey public law. Send him to Texas where they abide by public voted law and
    remove scum like this from never doing it again.

  2. Now, THIS is a pig who should get a huge dose of his own medicine and be beaten to a bloody pulp. I don’t want to hear sad tales of his messed up childhood. A pig is a pig

  3. there’s got to be a special place in hell for anyone who would beat and kill a child. Harm them in any way for that matter. Rest in paradise poor baby💔
