People across America were so outraged by one man’s abominable crimes that life in jail wouldn’t even be enough of a punishment to satisfy them. They want to see him publicly hanged, and they’ve started a petition to make it happen.
Benjamin Taylor, 32, confessed to raping his girlfriend’s baby daughter so brutally it caused her death. At the time, Taylor had been living with his girlfriend Amanda Adkins and her children from a previous relationship. The mother woke up early one morning to find her 9-month-old daughter Emmaleigh missing from her crib.
Adkins looked for Emmaleigh all over the house and finally found the baby in the basement with Taylor. The baby was laying nude and unresponsive on the cold concrete floor, bruised and bloodied from abuse. Paramedics rushed Emmaleigh to the hospital but she was already brain dead. The family later took her off life support.
Taylor confessed to the crime, though he told authorities he had been drinking and doesn’t remember. The death penalty was outlawed in West Virginia, but at least 2,500 people are willing to make an exception. They signed a petition calling for Taylor to be hanged.
“Prison is too good for child rapists and their ilk. I would move to say that our “justice system” is even a part of the problem, in that incarceration is hardly justice when it comes to such an awful act,” the petition read. “Maybe if these people were actually afraid of what would happen to them if/when they were caught, they’d be less likely to do such vile things? When it’s an open and shut case such as this, let us hang these creatures publicly. Let us make examples of them, and allow the American people to attend these hangings so that the accused may be ridiculed, as they should be.”Source: Mommy Page
