Dad guilty of putting baby in microwave

Wednesday Mar 26 11:17

AP – A young father has been convicted of badly injuring his infant daughter by putting her in a microwave in a Texas hotel room, with jurors rejecting his claim he was insane at the time.


What is this world coming to? First I read a story today about a circus in Italy which tortured two sisters. One, who was 16, was thrown into a tank full of flesh eating Piranhas for viewers enjoyment, while the other sister who was 19 was placed in a tank and had snakes thrown at her! Next I read a story about a father in the states which beat his 17 month old daughter to death after she accidentally caused his Xbox to fall and break. Now this story?

Personally I have always been a proponent of abolishing the death penalty, however these last few stories have provided an opportunity for reflection. The result? I still agree we are no worse then them if we take a life ourselves; its not our place to do so no matter how brutal the crime.

What should be reinstated is medieval forms of torture. Screw putting these rapists, pedophiles, serial killers and other psychotic criminals behind bars to live a life to solitude; reading books, getting an education, watching television even! The state of certain prisons are far to leisurely and accommodating for what these people deserve. I know, this is pretty harsh, but how can you feel otherwise after hearing about a man putting his baby daughter in a microwave! Here are a few “suggestions”…
