  1. Ppl that hurt there own child dont even deserv. To live!!! High or not there is no excuse these children dont ask to be brought into this world !!

  2. “Victim: Tristin Cota La Verne Mendez ( 3 months old) Male”……… Hmmmmm

    Subtract three month and Jordan Mendez could have asked to legally terminate childs life int the third trimester.

    That is what the democrat-judeo-progressives like Vern Nelson and Esq. Diamond from the OJB violently support.
