The fact that you think only God's grace keeps you from doing so is disturbing.

This comes a day or two after two girls killed their brother in Florida. What's with all the white on white family crime in this state?

It's the typical reaction of blood thirsty individuals. But how does salivating for retribution help those that are still alive and or being abuse. The root of most of these situations including mass murder is mental illness. At what point do we as a nation make it a priority to identify and treat the problem before there are more tragedies?

Total BS post. Not blood thirsty. Making excuses for somebody who murdered his daughter is disgusting. Do you defend pedophiles too as mentally ill? There comes a point in time where you just have had enough of animals posing as humans.

It is too bad he cannot be sent to a Latin American prison.

They truly don't mess around in those places, this guy would be tortured before being chopped into pieces.

No, sadly she was alive when she was thrown off. She was a real cutie, too.

Police say girl was alive when father tossed her over bridge

It might be a deterrent if the father was caught -stripped naked and thrown off the bridge in a large public ceremony. Once he hit the water - the public could shoot him with whatever weapons they own. I really don't believe in shooting innocent animals unless a person is in a desperate situation for food (desperate does not = too lazy to go to Krogers).

Nevertheless it feels good!
Murder as a deterrent for mental illness... Interesting.

You laugh at the mentally ill, and know it can never happen to you. But I wouldn't be surprised if this father had your attitude too. He probably laughed at the mentally ill and knew it could never happen to him.

Do you honestly believe there are any fathers so evil that they would suddenly decide to throw their 5 year old daughters off bridges for reasons other than insanity? Even his ex wife said everything was fine a few days earlier. Insanity or drugs are the only possible causes of such bizarre behavior.

People who say I'm making excuses for him are just stupid. I'm just trying to figure out his behavior, not make excuses.

Because a few seconds of pain to cease functioning in utero could never be anywhere nearly as horrible as consciously being thrown to your death by your father. Not to mention the terrible conditions she probably suffered through for five whole years before that moment.
Better still put her up for adoption so she could have lived and ejoyed her life. Killing is still killing.
