    The quote "Be kind for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle"
    comes to mind,often times it's a blessing even to find ambivalence.This however,is the action of evil vermin detached and desensitized to the value of human life.

    In September, all three women rejected a deal from the District Attorney's Office for a guilty plea in exchange for prison terms of seven to 14 years. They have been unable to post bail and still are in custody.
    It’s a good thing they rejected the plea bargain. Now they are going to go to prison for a lot longer for murder.

    Later that day, the 10-year-old child falsely told Gillard that Barnes had hit him which supposedly led to the attack.

    Horrific and so vicious.
    That photo of him in the hospital is hard to look at.
    My utmost condolences to his sister, Diane !

    Rest gently, Robert. Your sufferings in this world are over.

    Trial delayed for trio accused in fatal beating of homeless man

    http://www.phillyvoice.com/trial-del...-homeless-man/

    The trial for three women charged with murder in connection with the beating death of a homeless man outside an Olney gas station has again been delayed.

    Though the trio was slated to face trial starting on March 20, legal maneuvering has pushed the start back until July 31.

    Diane Barnes – whose brother Bobby died seven comatose months after the assault garnered national attention after being captured on video – told PhillyVoice this week that the delay stems from two of the defendants hiring experts to claim they weren’t of sound mind on the day of the ultimately fatal attack.

    “One of them was pregnant at the time and they’re hiring an expert to testify about her mental state. It can’t be postpartum, because that’s after giving birth, but I was told it was something along those lines,” Barnes said. “One of the others – the one who (allegedly) maced my brother – is hiring a mitigation expert to help her, too.”

    Considering all three will be tried simultaneously, the moves on behalf of Gillard and Joachim required a trial delay, she said.
    Three youths – a 12-year-old girl, and 13- and 14-year-old boys – were sentenced on assault charges several months later. Their charges were upgraded when Barnes died. At least one of the juveniles (the 14-year-old boy) has already pleaded guilty.
