That poor little boy.

Jesus Christ.

Why wouldn't the fucking judge clear the fucking courtroom?

Posted by Dan Savage | August 22, 2008 5:13 PM

I'd like to know the same thing...

Posted by Darcy | August 22, 2008 5:15 PM

That man needs to be slowly ripped limb from limb, with medical personnel on hand to staunch the bleeding just long enough to then roast him alive on a bed of coals. And even that would be too easy a punishment.

Jesus Christ is right. What horror. How will Shasta ever have a life?

Posted by Fnarf | August 22, 2008 5:19 PM

Fucking hell. Now I have to go re-read the gorilla story, which, in comparison, will cheer me up.

Posted by Megan Seling | August 22, 2008 5:23 PM

Yeah, why the hell not close the courtroom?

Posted by dwight moody | August 22, 2008 5:23 PM

Who the fuck would want to watch? For reals. Ugh.

This blog from inside the courtroom which reveals all the details of the videos is even WORSE.

Posted by schmoo | August 22, 2008 5:37 PM

Fucking hell, that's terrible.

Posted by Lloyd Clydesdale | August 22, 2008 5:56 PM

was @11 one of the people who wouldn't leave the courtroom?

and fucking hell, Dan you did ruin our day.

Too bad drawing and quartering is out of style. And what a typical sociopath. The motherfucker feels sorry for himself.

This guy is one of the reasons I'm glad capital punishment still exists.

Posted by sloggerette | August 22, 2008 7:22 PM

I wonder how he would have turned out without judeo/christian indoctrination.

Posted by paulus | August 22, 2008 7:47 PM

He should be flayed.

Posted by beatriz | August 22, 2008 8:22 PM

The anti-capital punishers tend to stay in the shadows and shush each other when the monstrous horror of Duncan's acts are revealed. He's not the hill to die on to protest capital punishment. Hope he hangs from a white hot wire noose in a pit of fire for eternity.

Stay quiet hippies. Thanks.

Exactly, sloggerette.

Posted by Neptune | August 23, 2008 10:56 AM

I don't think he should be given the death penalty- I'm against it 100%, in all cases. I do think he should be given life without possibility of parole, and the chance to rot in prison for the rest of his time on earth.

Posted by Sara | August 23, 2008 12:35 PM

I'm fairly anti-capital punishment...In my gut, I think it's wrong.

But sometimes I'm ok with wrong. I will shed no tears for this man, should he face execution. It's cases like this that really try my convictions on this issue.

Posted by Atlanta Steve | August 23, 2008 12:55 PM

I am against capital punishment. It is exactly cases like this that test my resolve.

In my heart, I know that state sponsored murder is wrong. I would fully support Shasta and Dylan's dad killing him and getting no consequence. But in the end, his murder would not bring justice to the family. It will not bring Dylan back, it will not erase the suffering or the torture that his family has endured. Families who seek the death penalty do not find the comfort or solace that they seek once the criminal is killed.

In cases like this, there is no justice and sadly that is what we have to live with.

Posted by Papayas | August 23, 2008 5:09 PM

I'm also anti-death penalty. I'd like this guy to hang by a wire noose, preferably supported such that he dies slowly by bleeding to death after the wire cuts into his flesh versus quickly from strangulation. I'd like to do it myself. But I just can't believe that is is morally right to kill.

And that judge deserves to be impeached, disbarred, or whatever the hell you do to a fucking judge who thinks the torture of children should be a spectator sport.

Posted by ferretrick | August 23, 2008 6:02 PM

see i'm really against capital punishment. but i think i'd like to start a petition that says no to capital punishment EXCEPT for peadophiles, child rapists and child murderers. sick of reading about convicted peadophiles getting out to do even worse after pitifully short sentences.

God, i like the good old days when hanging, drawing and quatering was considered a good idea.

Posted by annie | August 24, 2008 6:38 PM

Killing this man is not justice. Making him sit by himself in a tiny cage, forever, with no one around to control, manipulate, or harm... that's much better.
