Justice? Should Parents of Murdering Teen Punks be Placed in Prison With Them?

Written by Kevin Fobbs on May 9, 2014

The endless parade of murdering thugs and their smarmy grins that seep through their mug shots onto the pages of newspapers and computer screens is sickening America to its core. But where is the end, and one of the other real questions is where the justice for the dead is? Recently an 8-year-old child in Richmond, Virginia, who was simply playing in his backyard with his 12-year-old sister, was viciously murdered when the young brother, Martin Cobb tried to defend his sister against a 16-year-old alleged rapist, according to ABC 8 News.

The very thought of having a young defenseless child being murdered at the hands of a despicable teenage punk who was attempting to rape a 12-year-old girl is heinous. Yet in America the tradition of the nation’s criminal justice system is to turn a blind eye to the impact of murder by teens on the victims and their families. Instead, there are the liberal apologists who try to paint a portrait of how the father was absent from the home and the mother was unknowing of her “perfect” child’s behavior.

This perfected image of apologetic nonsense has got to come to an end point and 2014 is a perfect time for it. For far too long, the parents of these murdering and convicted human hyenas have been given a free pass. They are typically the ones who show up at the sentencing of their “poor misunderstood child” asking for leniency from the court.

How about this, what about instead of asking the court for leniency, the parent or parents join their murdering “misunderstood child” in the same prison as the child. The sins of the son or daughter will soon be falling upon the parents.

The outcry of such a law would send liberals into a howling fit because, after all, why should parents suffer the same fate as their poor misunderstood and morally deprived thug child? The answer is simple. You brought the child into this world and you will be made responsible for the child, and especially if your child commits a crime.

The parents will then be forced to step up to the plate and suddenly discover what it truly means to be a parent and not just a custodian of the child until he or she can be tossed out the door when you tire of the criminal activity that you simply tolerated while the youthful felons were under your roof.

Teens who murder like the 16-year-old who looked squarely into the face of innocence when he crushed in the head of the 8-year-old child should actually be made to pay the ultimate price. That behavior is not the act of a misunderstood child misbehaving. No this was the calculated act of a vicious murdering criminal who sought to kill and should be put to death…period!

This hand-wringing in society should not be over the destination of a teen who murders. The concern and the compassion should be directed toward the mother and father and siblings who will not see their son or brother grow up to graduate and have a family and smile at his own babies.

Stop the weeping over this teen rubbish in society and start standing up for the lost generation that has been stolen from the nation through the murderous actions of gutter, trash-like pre-adults. If parents are imprisoned for the actions of their murdering child, then one can be certain that they will stop overlooking bullying behavior. These parents will stop ignoring the signs that their child is a stone-cold murderer in training.

Stand up for the life of all children and all people who are stripped of God’s miracle of life because a bottom feeding murderer decided to target that innocent for death. Put the parents on trial and make them pay the price of imprisonment. Soon the nation will see how soon teen murderers’ row becomes parents’ of murderers’ row and view the decline of murders in America.

Now that is justice!
