Sick Bastard

I can't even write about what this "father" did to his child. You can go read it yourself, but you may want to wait until you have an empty stomach. I'll grant that he hasn't been convicted. I'll grant that he's innocent until proven guilty. And I will confess that I have a rather strong aversion to capital punishment in almost any instance. But I wouldn't support eradicating the death penalty entirely. Sometimes, only the maximum possible penalty will do. And provided that Nyia Page's "father" is convicted of doing what is described in this article, then surely this is one of those rare cases.

There's a special place in hell for people like him.

My thoughts exactly. I keep trying to prevent this story from invading my consciousness, but it does anyway. Makes me run and hug my kids extra.

Hell is too good for this beast. He should be tied up and left in the snow to freeze to death.

Hi everyone-
My name is Karen-- I live in Pittsburgh. I, like the rest of you am very bothered about this case. I can't sleep at night thinking of this precious little girl who was cold, scared and probably calling out to her daddy as he left her standing barefoot in the snow.

I have an idea-- and I am wondering if anyone would like to help out. I am so tired of hearing useless news stories-- such as HOW Anna Nichole Smith killed herself. There seems to be such little media attention to REAL news-- such as the death of Nyia. Would you all be willing to help me????? I want to bug the heck out of local TV stations, National News-- any source I can by e-mail, letter....... you name it. I want to speak out about this crime-- and demand that more coverage be given to it. I am hoping that our efforts may encourage the lawmakers to DO SOMETHING to prevent this type of abuse to any child.

Can we try to do this???? Maybe if many of us e-mail several sources-- we can get something done-- rathar than sitting around talking about this tragedy. I would like to see something good come out of Nyia's death. I pray for the soul of this sweet little girl-- I just can't get her out of my mind.

I DO NOT want to see the monster who caused her death getting off on an insanity charge!!!!!! Is anyone willing to join efforts??? You know the old saying-- "The squeaky wheel gets the grease"???

You could do what I do to avoid all the useless news. Turn off the television. Don't watch one single minute of television news. For a better and more powerful effect, don't watch any television at all.

The print media isn't going nutso over Anna Nicole. National Public Radio barely mentions the story. And then there are blogs, which -- if you choose them carefully -- will also provide you with only celebrity-free news.

Plus, if you can avoid television entirely, you end up avoiding at least 98% of all the stupid election-time attack ads.

The really sad thing about the Nyia Page story is that, if this was a cute little blonde-haried white girl, from Fox Chapel instead of Bradock, with at least a few seconds of video (playing with a puppy, eating birthday cake, etc.) to loop underneath the voice over, this story would be everywhere. People in from Maine to Spokane would be getting updates from their local stations every few hours.

Thanks for your comments, Karen.

I agree with you-- that there are better sources of news. My main point is that the story of what happenned to Nyia is so AWFUL-- and I wish more citizens would try to get involved to TRY to change laws in regard to child abuse. If there is not enough coverage on a topic such as this by the media-- we should demand that there should be. If many were involved, someone would listen. I have read that many feel that Nyia's story is not getting coverage for the reasons you stated. I feel this is a shame. It should not matter if a child is white, black, red, etc..... child abuse is child abuse-- and must be stopped.....
Perhaps, in this case, we white people should speak out and demand justice for this little girl. I'd like to see the state of PA mandate more severe penalties for any form of abuse-- perhaps that would make these sickos think twice before harming a child....
