I was horrified to read the story of Tori Stafford, the 8-year-old subjected to such brutality.
What kind of people would indulge in such bestiality by abducting a child, raping her repeatedly and then smashing her head to kill her? What did that poor child do to deserve such a fate? Equally disgraceful is the attitude of the media that simply report without questioning the lifestyle that leads to such crimes. I believe the death penalty should be instituted for such horrible crimes.
