I’m so glad when readers submit “Gun Death?” stories they often warn me when the story is a really grizzly one. this is one of those stories.

For more than four months, a toddler battled for his life after being held in a pot of boiling water, Dallas police said.

Police told The Dallas Morning News in a story Tuesday that 16-month-old Jabraylon Bables appeared to have been dipped in boiling water. The toddler died Saturday from injuries and infections, 36 days after police say he was deliberately burned.

The boyfriend of the child’s mother is a convicted murderer named Carlnelus Delaney Simmons. He remains in the Dallas County Jail on a felony charge of injury to a child.

Good LORD! How could anybody do this?

Simmons has a violent past and was convicted of killing a man in a 1994 bar fight. He got a 15-year prison sentence for the crime.

There are real monsters in this world, and if we do nothing about them, and only focus on tools the way the gun control crowd does, this is all that will result.

    I wonder if he did the full 15 years, but he would have been out by now, anyway. Hopefully this one will get him the death penalty. Anyone who would do that to a child needs to be permanently removed from life as soon as possible, and with as little ceremony as possible. He’s a rabid animal, and should be treated as one.

      I agree, you can’t fix monsters like that, and keeping them around, even in a cage puts good people, and less evil people at risk.

      This is the reason for the death penalty, not retribution, fear, or eye-for-an-eye. (tho if we could hang somebody without 25 years of appeals trials, it might put some beneficial fear into the hearts of some of the least monstrous of the monster community. Shitbags like this doubtfully think much further than the end of the next commercial break)

    I’m not a terribly violent man, but in this case… firing squad would be too good for him. I’d be a fan of putting him in the general population and tell the baddest motherfucker in there what he did. Let the rest sort itself out naturally. Then put in a good word for the bad guy

    • Weerd Beard says:

      I wonder if this doesn’t already happen. Dahmer and Father Geoghan come quickly to mind.

        Friend of mine was caught up in something like this. A girl he’d know most of his life was shacking up with a dude, and got preggers. Dude decided it would be a good idea to beat on her a little until she lost the baby, and, depressed, she took her own life. My buddy testified in court against the guy and he was convicted and received a fairly short sentence. Turned out to be a life sentence. He wasn’t in the pokey for more than a few days when some other choirboy took offense to him and introduced him to the pointy end of a shiv. Let’s just say, neither my buddy nor the girl’s family lost much sleep over it. I mourn two of the lives lost, but not the third.

          I must say I’m not a fire-and-brimstone sort of guy. I like the death penalty because its a good idea on many levels how I see it. I like execution methods like firing squad, long-drop hanging, and single-drug lethal-injection, because they’re humane, respectful and effective. I don’t like things like the electric chair or the current lethal injection machine because they simply aren’t.

          Also when somebody is murdered in prison is it MURDER and wrong, and a miscarriage of justice, and that miscarriage needs to be minimized.

          Its awful and a crime, but when awful things happen to bad people, I also don’t get very worked up about it…
