I truly hope that the community try him ... justice system is far to lenient.

We live in the world with people who are demonic, I mean how could he kill an innocent soul, a child. I wish that he doesn't get any hearing, they must just throw him in jail and lock him there forever,he does not deserve to mix with people.

So is it this 'chicken' guy they were looking for or an unrelated suspect? Not many details in the article.

Let's hope that he will feel the pain. To take a life, a very young one at that, is unspeakable. He deserves to have a very slow painful death. A man indeed. As said before anyone who murders or rapes cannot be called a man.
