Clearly Mad AND Bad

This story seems to be the topic of morning shows today

A father, with his six year old and 2 year old sons watching, threw his four year old daughter Darcy off the Westgate Bridge in Melbourne.
It has since come out that the six year old boy pleaded with his father to go back and get Darcy but the father just kept driving.

The fall didn't kill Darcy. She died later in hospital.

So, finally this monster is convicted. While he did not deny he threw his daughter off the bridge, he had pleaded not guilty on the grounds of mental impairment.

That's the statement that makes my blood boil!!!
Of course he's goddam mentally impaired!!!!!!!!!!!!
What sane person would ever deliberately pull over a busy road, take a four year old girl from her car restraints, and chuck her over a bridge????

Sane people don't do that!!!

But guess what, we're all responsible for our actions so mentally impaired or not, this man has to pay for what he did!!! Not only to that little girl who's now denied a life, but to her brothers who watched it happen and her mother who will never hold her little girl again.
What a monster!!!

I don't like the death penalty as no one suffers from it. Instead, I propose a lifetime of torture.
THAT'S what I'd sentence this guy too!!

No doubt he's suffering, having to live with what he did but his suffering is no where near what he should get for doing what he did.

Mentally ill... such a stupid defense. It's about time we start making people accountable for what they do.

This story makes me feel so sick inside!!! I can't even imagine the terror this child felt or the horror of her brothers seeing this happen. You're so right, mentally insane is such a stupid defense, of course he was!!! Ugh makes me feel sick.

Oh my..... just too horrific to comprehend. I agree whole heartedly with you, he should be made to understand and suffer. That poor poor little girl, not forgetting her siblings (what mental trauma they would suffer also) and the mother. Makes my blood boil someone so sick could do that to an innocent little girl.

Very sad indeed...however...Quote
" Mental illnesses are serious medical illnesses. They cannot be overcome through "will power" and are not related to a person's "character" or intelligence. Mental illness falls along a continuum of severity.Mental illnesses are medical conditions that disrupt a person's thinking, feeling, mood, ability to relate to others and daily functioning. Just as diabetes is a disorder of the pancreas, mental illnesses are medical conditions that often result in a diminished capacity for coping with the ordinary demands of life" unquote. I think most who experience mental illness are already tortured...besides eye for an eye thinking just perpetuates violence, hate and human suffering...education, understanding and support are the key...Kelly
