China Arnold has been sentenced to life in prison with no chance for parole. Arnold was convicted in August of burning her month old daughter, Paris, to death when she placed her in a microwave oven and burned her to death. The prosecution alleges that she put the baby in the microwave after she had a fight with her boyfriend over who was the baby’s biological father. You can read about it at the AP or at MSNBC.
This is why I support the death penalty. I don’t believe that the death penalty provides a deterrent to crime but people like China Arnold are wasting space on this planet. She doesn’t deserve to live or breath or see a sunrise or sunset. What she did to her own flesh and blood is beyond imagination. If there was ever a case to be made for evil this is it. Sadly, I suspect she was only trying to get her boyfriend’s attention.
“During the trial, an 8-year-old boy said he saw another boy walk into the kitchen of a nearby apartment with the baby, heard the microwave go on and then later saw the burned baby in the microwave.”
This is why you should not be for the death penalty. Killing innocent people is the worst offense.
What is the source?
According to the Dayton Daily News:
“The boy’s father told the Dayton Daily News in February that he called Arnold’s attorneys Feb. 4 after his son said he had been present when Paris Talley was killed and had pulled the baby’s body from the microwave. The father said his son told him an older child might have put the baby in the microwave.
The boy’s mother told prosecutors the boy was not at Arnold’s home when the baby died.”
anonymous – You’re an idiot! The 8 year old boy was proven to have been telling a lie, because she had asked him to. The mother and the boyfriend of the boy’s mother both said he was nowhere near the incident.
This case is the perfect case for the death penalty. This ‘thing’ could never be a part of humanity.
-Keep up the good work!
I hope that they let her have a third trial which is what her attorney is pressing for just so they can open the death penalty back up. The timeline in which the boy was seen in the apartment did not match the timeline in which the baby was actually killed. Either way she has no buisness being intoxicated when she was to be caring for the infant. Why do people like this even have children? Maybe in the end this was better for the baby then growing up in that kind of environment. Even though it should have never came down to that.
