  1. I’m thinking it’s unforgivable. The code of conduct for any “man” is that you don’t do harm to those Unegual to yourself. To physically kill something that looks to you for life and guidance to appalling. What has society come to when we let someone who’s main goal is to entertain us get away with murder, might have well as bashed a baby on a wall. We all pay for it in the end.Equal punishment? Toss him a a pen of hogs with peanut butter smeared on him-see how long he last! Broke the code of the warrior we look up to-shame on you!

    I’m just wondering if you have this type of outrage over the baby that was placed in a microwave by its parents or the baby that was placed in the dryer with the clothes? What should happen to those parents? consulting? or do they get the peanut butter/hog treatment?
