The case has spawned public outrage. According to a Channel 4 News anchor, “The case has shaken up…even the most veteran law enforcement.” The next footage shown is of a very young girl from APD. Here is a question; where is this zit-faced kid a veteran? KOB 4 is consistently presenting information that is skewed and misrepresentative of the real facts. We thought Channel 7 was partnered with the Albuquerque Journal. It is obvious Channel 4 is sensationalizing things to gain ratings. This is a new low even for Channel 4.
END SIDE BAR
The City keeps running into case after case where a baby or small child has been severely injured or killed by a parent or guardian. Why? Is it a parenting issue? Are these people using drugs? What is the core issue(s) surrounding this demonic behavior? Why this mayor and chief haven’t done anything to research the problem, take appropriate action and save these children is a mystery.
Something needs to change. If a person is found guilty of killing a child; it should be an automatic death sentence. There is not EVER an acceptable reason for hurting a child. Think about it, why did our society conduct public hangings back in the day? Why does the Mexican Drug Cartel hang people in public places like off bridges? It sends a clear message that certain behavior(s) are not acceptable and will not be tolerated.
Note: We DO NOT condone the Mexican Drug Cartel; they were used as an example to prove a point.
We as a society will do whatever it takes to protect property and financial vestments but our greatest treasures are our kids. Yet, we all say, “What that person did is awful; they should die for what they’ve done!” and we go about our business. Shame on us for not demanding more from our public servants and elected officials and accepting that they do nothing.
For every child that is injured or killed and nothing is done about it by the mayor and/or the chief; we find they are just as guilty of hurting that child as are the offender. We desperately need a new mayor and chief who will serve the people and not be self-serving.
