I've always said I would kill someone to get out of the office Christmas party, but my own son?!

That's just a little to hardcore for me.

I hear the eggnog in lock up is wonderful during Christmas.

Remain in jail only during Christmas? Sounds like a good deal to me.

I wish I had known this was an option this last Thanksgiving.

The last two paragraphs are messed up:

The death was deemed a homicide when an autopsy determined she had died as a result of multiple blunt-force trauma.

Investigators also discovered that Meika had sustained a severe third-degree burn to her hand and palm and had some other undetermined injuries prior to her death.

Police have not revealed how the girl was hurt.


Uhh, I think the article just told us how it happened, so I guess the police really don't need to do that now.

The article said it was a girl. In some cultures they're not worth as much.

That is really an amusing way to word an actual headline.

Parents accused of killing six-year-old to. will remain behind bars over Christmas.

There Mr Journalist, FTFY.

I think the author meant to say they hadn't determined the exact cause of the injuries. I'm guessing news articles rarely get proofread these days.

Multiple blunt force trauma is a pretty generic term. Was she dropped on her head? Beat with an object? Hit by a car?

farking assholes. I say let them out of jail, sow raw meat to their bodies, and drop them off in the everglades.
 
2012-12-13 02:56:51 PM  
Let 'em rot in there. I don't think anyone would mind if they never got out. Farking a-hole people.

What a horrible story. I don't often have bloodthirsty revenge fantasies but those two deserve something creative. The needle is too good for them.

I'm all for the death penalty. Especially in a case like this where it's so obvious who did it. Under normal circumstances I would suggest a hasty trial, then give the girl's parents a bat or gun (their choice), and shuffle the asshole out the back door.

In this case, though, one of them IS the parent! So, find the girl's real father, or closest relative, and let THEM do he beating, stabbing, shooting, etc. The burn him, just to be sure.

Amen.... although I have used him as an excuse to get out of the party "Oh he's sick, I really need to stay home with him."

I like to think I am as desensitized as the next Farker, but I just can't bring myself to find anything about this case, or this thread that is funny.

Cue welcometofark.jpg if you like, I'm gonna go weep like Jesus.

There. You're welcome.

I'm pretty sure these people are the real reason tire shredders were invented. Saddam's sons sure knew how to use them. Just lower them in VERY SLOWLY and stop the shredder every 3 or 4 inches just to hear them scream for a while then repeat. That would be sweet....
 
2012-12-13 04:07:41 PM  
Anybody know if there's a plausible theory as to why they killed the kid?

I am going with: one or more of the two adults are stone cold psychopaths. Any other theories? I am out of ideas.

I hope they rot in prison and then rot in Hell.

If the are in the general pop, they will not be rotting (at least here on Earth) for too long.

My guess is at least one of them either abused her for some sick pleasure or as a form of punishment. This time it went too far and she died.

The way they took her to a hospital tells me they didn't intend for her to die. They also didn't seem to do anything to hide it so it doesn't appear to be planned.

I think a fair punishment would be to give them both the claws that are used in cockfights and tell them they're free to go if they kill the other. Then when one of them is dead, you tell them congratulations, pull out a .45, then shoot them in the head

I guess I'll ask you, since you are here. Do people who say these things realize that they are mentally as much as a psychopath as the person they are talking about, or do they honestly think that this is a sane line of thinking?

Works for me.

Really? "Stone cold psychopaths?" Is that the default theory after everyone's seen Silence of the Lambs? "Somebody lost their temper" just too banal for you?

I meant, has someone who is connnected with this case (such as the prosecutor) suggested a motive for this crime?

ShannonKW: eally? "Stone cold psychopaths?" Is that the default theory after everyone's seen Silence of the Lambs? "Somebody lost their temper" just too banal for you?


In light of the previous injuries discovered during the autopsy, said person would have had to lost their temper multiple times. That would tend to indicate "psychopath".

ShannonKW: I meant, has someone who is connnected with this case (such as the prosecutor) suggested a motive for this crime?

I know what you meant. It is silly to look for a "motive" for beating your child multiple times.

I'm going to go with the "one parent trying to get back at the other parent who probably has primary custody by killing the child or children" as motive. We've been seeing a lot of that sh*t in Canada recently, and sadly when you see the faces of the ultimate victims, it just gets f*cking worse.
 
2012-12-13 05:02:11 PM  
From TFA: "Investigators also discovered that Meika had sustained a severe third-degree burn to her hand and palm and had some other undetermined injuries prior to her death."

So they were trying to kill the kid slowly with torture involved? They did it more than once? Even if the motive was revenge on the other natural parent, that is pretty psychopathic.
 
2012-12-13 05:13:43 PM  
No death penalty. They are in Canada.

5 minutes for high sticking, maybe.

No, it isn't.

Diagnosing strangers you've never met on the strength of a news article is silly, especially when you know jack shiat about psychiatry.

Perhaps this is because you are a kind person, and you look at the picture of that cute little girl and think, "anyone who would beat her to death has to be crazy!" I feel the same way too. But, not everybody is like us; not everybody is in our position. Some people are beset with problems. Some people are at the end of their rope. Some people see a child as a living reminder of their problems and the (perceived) injustices done to them. You don't have to be a "stone cold psychopath" for the stresses of life and caring for a young child to bring out the flaws in your character.

Anyway, no, it looks like nobody has a clear idea of why they killed the kid.

It WAS the real father who did it and her step mom.

Correct. Most would feel extreme remorse for merely hitting a child. A smaller number would feel remorse for beating the kid over the head once. An even smaller number would feel no remorse for repeatedly doing this, They are called psychopaths. And, no I am not trying to diagnose someone on the strength of a news article, I was postulating that only a psycho would repeatedly abuse their child. Again, there is no rational reason ("motive") for systematically abusing your child.

Seriously?!?! I'm an a-hole and this pisses even me off. If you can't handle the kid, put her up for adoption. I've got two little girls and couldn't even think about doing something like that without turning into a blubbery mess and they are devils like their daddy.

Grrrrrrr!!!!
I can't even come up with something better than that right now. Total rage. I'm gonna go punch a tree or something now.

that is not fair, some people might have trouble taking anothers life even if it is for a vary good cause. Open a salt mine (or "research station") in the arctic somewhere and send people like this to die.
 
2012-12-14 02:39:38 AM  
I reject the death penalty on ethical and practical grounds. Under certain circumstances, however, I wouldn't object to a little manslaughter. Or a hunting "accident," I hear the moose can be very aggressive in Canada.

I've always found this way of thinking a completely retarded. If you think murdering an innocent child is the same as killing a murderer then there's definitely something wrong with you.
