Man who beat stepdaughter to death loses his appeal.
I rarely step away from writing poetry and quotes, It is a passion of mine. But, after reading this article this morning I couldn’t focus on anything else. We often hear on the news about bank robberies and shootings and people losing their lives, It’s the sad reality of the world we live in. But, This is too much. The above article speaks about a step father who assaults his step daughter by beating her to death and prior to the murder he had burned the little girl with a cigarette lighter a number of times.
The heart wrenching part though, Is despite being in agonizing pain after being burned. The little girl made her way to her mother’s bedroom. Knowing that her step father would be there, to tell her mother that she was in pain by saying ‘boo boo tummy” prior to collapsing on the ground. The little angel clearly braved her way to her mother hoping to find safety and comfort, but in doing so further aggrevated a ruptured vein in her body, that’s when she took her last breath and was pronounced dead at the hospital.
It’s amazing how much our legal system fails us here. I mean seriously, after his actions they still granted this coward a chance at an appeal? He assaulted a child who not only couldn’t fight back but holds no hate and only fear and curiosity. Yet, they granted him what? 5 minutes to make a pathetic defence that he only had grade 9 education and was only 22? sorry but, that’s not an argument. That’s a coward refusing to admit that he’s done something insanely monstrous. Now, I know I probably will sound out of line here but where is the mother in all this? where’s her statement? I pray and pray that the little angel has made her way back to heaven where she’s no longer suffering and true justice will be served upon the monster that took her life.
I’m sick and tired of it, of having to apologize for being myself or for saying what is well within my right.
How often have I consistently excused myself just to be nice and end up getting walked all over? most people haven’t even given me a reason to think that they were worth my caring so much about anyways. If anything most have just enjoyed toying with my feelings, maybe it’s about time to rid of those people from my life.
Okay, is it too much to ask for a steady good day? it started pretty damn good when I heard that my rat of a coworker was going to get a reprimand cause he insulted the supervisor, on front of a senior business department staff. So yeah, let’s just say supervisor wasn’t too pleased and the ball got rolling, it led from that one incident to a history of them. He’s under probation now, it’s a good thing for other departments because he’s ratted them out too. I hate to have pulled my other coworkers into this, but questions had to be asked by boss.
Anyways, it went well. So, sure enough a few minutes later I got the silent treatment by someone? don’t know why? is it THAT much to ask for a steady decent day where everything goes right?
Sometime ago, i wrote an article on people who are so full of their own relationships that they can’t be bothered to listen to a friend that needed someone to talk to. It was something i saw on the skytrain, i believe i wrote it two weeks ago? anyways. I found myself on the receiving end of that earlier today, i was talking to a friend (yeah i dont hold grudges) about what’s new in my life since we haven’t spoken in forever. She was also telling me her story, somehow it ended up on the subject of relationships, so ok i told her that i was still single and that i was just waiting for the right one. Sounds casual enough right?
Well, it was until she started to suddenly give me advice telling me that it’s perfectly okay to be single and that there was nothing wrong with it etc. So i told her i didn’t have a problem with it, all of a sudden i sensed she wanted to tell me about her relationship. So, fine we talked about it after she threw more statements about how i should be happy to be single and how it’s not the end of the world etc, i stopped her right there and told her that either she get on with her story or it’s the end of this chat. I am normally a patient guy, everyone has something to say and i can appreciate it. But, there comes a time when i simply lose that patience. I mean seriously, don’t assume that just because you are in a relationship and happy that somehow that gives you the right to pity someone who doesn’t and rub it in their faces, she has no idea what i feel or what i am thinking every time i see people show each other affection. Neither does she know how i feel about being where i am now, anyways. I ended the conversation not long after, it’s amazing how full of themselves people can be isn’t it?
