    Justice for Soren

    [​IMG]


    Soren died at 5 years old on March 5, 2013.
    Soren was covered in bruises head to toe.
    She had a broken collarbone healing.

    Soren died of blunt force trauma to the head.
    It is believed he also tried to drown her.

    Soren's Mom has since married the man who beat her to death.

    And early Tuesday, police say, Soren, who just turned 5 in January, was beaten to death at her home on Craig Farm Road, which she shared with her mother and her mother’s boyfriend, Phillip Bryan Gleason, 27.

    -------------------------

    “This Bryan guy...he had a very imposing demeanor,” she said. “He was very domineering. I met him and didn’t like him.”

    Despite a grandmother’s plea that “a tiny little girl had no chance to fight off a monster,” a judge set a $150,000 bond Friday for the wounded Iraq War veteran accused of beating his girlfriend’s daughter to death outside Lancaster earlier this month.

    Yet for the first time, the lawyer for accused child killer Phillip Gleason offered a defense in the case, saying that shaken baby cases are “junk science” and Soren Chilson’s death from brain injuries is consistent with choking after a seizure.

    The man accused in the death of a 5-year-old Lancaster County girl has posted bond.

    Phillip Gleason, 27, was released
    from the Lancaster County Detention Center on Monday after making bail.

    Captain Craig Bailey in video, testifying in court AGAINST him getting bond.

    "Your Honor I've been doing this for 24 years and a few months.
    I've worked too many of these types of cases...
    Soren's little body..." *chokes up*
    "It's hard to even talk about but...
    you could hardly even put your hand on that body and not touch bruises."

    Slain Lancaster girl ‘a child to be celebrated’

    “She was the light of his life,” Chilson-Cole said. “She idolized her daddy.”

    [​IMG]


    The last time Chilson-Cole saw her niece was in November,
    when the family spent Veterans Day in a park in Columbia.

    “She did not want to leave her daddy,” Chilson-Cole recalled.

    Remembering Jeremy Chilson - Soren's Daddy

    [​IMG]

    Jeremy left December 10, 2012 convinced he would never see his daughter again.
    Jeremy went out with friends on December 21, 2012.
    He went into respiratory distress (from taking something) and the people with him did not call for help.
    Jeremy died at 26 years old on December 22, 2012.

    HOW can this woman marry him after he killed this beautiful little girl??
    :banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead:

    Another thing, how do these defense lawyers sleep at nite? I know, everyone is entitled to representation, but how in the world do these lawyers ever get one wink of sleep?
    One of the lawyers in the gang rape case in Ohio says that his clients dna must've gotten into a condom found at the scene by helicopter wind blowing it off of a beer can :facepalm:

    I could never be a defense lawyer....my imagination just isn't that good

    There's no way in Hades this 'mother' did not know about the head to toe bruises and who caused them.

    Both of 'em ought to be put in prison for life. And neutered, in case of parole.

    What in the heck? This guy is out now but still has trial, correct? No jury will let him walk if what the LE captain said is true about her being covered in bruises.
    What a gorgeous face and the light in her eyes ! I love this little girl .
    It's a sad day on ws today, everyone be warned.

    Some of them probably don't sleep too well at night. However, if there was no defense lawyer, the defendant couldn't be tried, would walk free automatically and the criminal justice system would cease to function. So its not just that the defendant has a right to representation, society has a right to see justice done too.

    As for the mother marrying the accused, I can't find any words that aren't rude so I'll just say nothing at all. :banghead:

    Another case of mother putting her child in harms way because she has to be with a man. What the heck is wrong with these women. I just do not get it. Are these men worth the well-being of the precious children?
    Why does this keep happening?

    Soren's family has posted on the facebook to say that people are still fighting for justice.
    We all know here that justice can take time. Yes, it may be a year or two until it goes to trial.
    But Soren's family wants to assure everyone that "those responsible" for Soren's death will pay.

    I will never understand how these so called 'mothers' can marry the abusers and murderers of their children. I just cannot comprehend the cold callous evil heartedness that it describes. There is a special place in hell for all of them.

    There is a special place in hell for them, but too bad these momsters get to live a long long time after their innocent children are murdered and not mourned nor missed.

    Absolutely heartbreaking. Such a precious little girl, I can't imagine how someone could hurt her. There's such a presence about her, you can tell she's the kind of child that just drew everybody in.

    I have no words for the man who did this, or the woman who gave birth to her (because there's no way I can call her a 'mother'). I just hope that justice is served for little Soren and her daddy. :(

    Why do I smell a strategy involved?

    But yes, the question still nags... WHY?

    Denial might have escorted Mommy up to the door, but she actually walked through it... and why, exactly? With Loverboy charged, how can Mommy NOT take advantage of the opportunity to point a finger at the man who took her baby? Is she in fear for her own life at this point, perhaps?

    I'm a FIRM believer in "Judge not," as none of us on the outside can ever know the WHOLE story... but situations like this are becoming an epidemic and unfortunately at this point all too predictable...

    I'll stop now before I rant. Anything else I say belongs in the Jury Room or Parking Lot... if I don't want TO or to be banned, that is.

    It is sociopathic. My brother has outright abandoned his daughters to move in with his bipolar girlfriend. My parents, in their late 70s are raising the 7th grader and 10th grader. It is about control of the person, persons, and the sadistic way they are pulled in. It is so difficult to blame one or the other, because they are all at fault on enabling.

    My own parents are slaves, because if they don't do what my brothers says, he threatens to move the girls with him, which would not be healthy.

    Bullies are just not in school, they are everywhere. Until we have a voice to stand up for children before a crime, this will continue.

    I see absolutely nothing new on Soren's case... on facebook or in the news.

    However, Soren should be starting Kindergarten this year.
