JJ.Birkey
Rational_Thinker9119

In Missouri, a man rapes his 14 month old daughter, while the girlfriend watches. He killed the little girl by strangulation, the force of the impact would have killed her. The man is charged with first degree murder, the woman charged with second degree, sentence is undermined. Death Penalty should be used for this because the man took away the innocence of the this little girl, let alone for the murder. Yes, it is immoral, but so is the actions of this man and woman, they together, murdered th...
