I do not support the death penalty...

..but I make exceptions when it comes to children. If I am this shaken up over the son of another, I can't even imagine how I'd feel if it were my son.. I don't think I could handle it.. I'd fall apart completely. Planning to follow this prosecution closely to the end, because we might find some relief when these mother fuckers draw their last breath. -AT
SAVANNAH, Georgia (AP) -- A convicted child molester and his father took turns sexually assaulting a 6-year-old boy while the molester's mother watched, then they choked the boy to death, according to an indictment issued Wednesday.
The indictment charges all three family members with murder and child molestation in the slaying of young Christopher Michael Barrios, whose body was found last Thursday inside a trash bag dumped by a roadside.
District Attorney Stephen D. Kelley said he will seek the death penalty against 32-year-old George David Edenfield, who has a prior child molestation conviction from 1997, and his parents, David and Peggy Edenfield.
"This is one of the most horrific crimes that I have seen in 21 years of prosecutions," Kelley said.
Christopher went missing for a week before police found his body about three miles from his trailer park home outside Brunswick, a Georgia port city 60 miles south of Savannah. The suspects lived in a mobile home across the street from the boy's grandmother.
The indictment contains grim details about the case that police and prosecutors had not previously revealed. It says Christopher died from asphyxiation March 8 -- the day he was reported missing -- after the suspects choked him while "ignoring his complaints that they were hurting him." The indictment does not say which of three caused the boy's death. (Watch how three shovels helped police Video)
It also claims George Edenfield and his 58-year-old father sodomized the boy and forced him to perform oral sex while Peggy Edenfield watched and masturbated.
"They deserve the worst, for them to torture my son like that, every last one of them," said Mike Barrios, the slain boy's father.

The death penalty would be a quick end to these animals.

Have no doubt, where these animals are being sent, they will endure the same treatment given to that innocent little boy.

I hope they suffer for ever in prison.

as a new mother my view is why go to the expense of a trial which we the taxpayers pay for, just shoot the bastards and have done with it.

I read somewhere that the the cost to tax payers to keep one inmate in jail for a year is forty thosand dollars.
I highly value life as I'm sure we all do, that said I am 100% for the death penalty. When children are harmed, I wish the bastards a slow death.

this country should not spend one cent on any of these three non-humans. jail is too costly and too good for them. i say "an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth". sexually assault all three of them, choke all three of them and put them in a black trash bag by the side of the road. when will be able to protect our innocent little children? thank GOD that precious little child is at peace,for his death is not even imagineable. hurrah for Bill O'Reilly who continuously fights for the laws to protect children for those states with no brains that don't. shame on those states and those lawmakers. do you think they might get it now? GOD - we can only hope. peace and love to the little barrios child and his loved ones. mr. barrios, sr. you have my heart and sympathy and the fault is with the lawmakers who won't go the mile to protect our children. you my dear father are not to blame.

ardent, gulay, cem, karen..
Are such heinous criminal acts limited to the US?... To me it sometimes appears so. Is this incorrect thinking? Obviously there are such low-life people in every nation of the world.. It frightens me to think that such rapists and murderers run rampant across the globe.. Look at the child pornography and child sex trade in the far east.. Is this only the tip of the proverbial iceberg? Awareness of this stuff needs to reach far and wide. Shutting it out and ignoring such news reports makes me feel almost complicit. A child goes missing every 40 seconds according to this website:
