    Rest in peace, little boy.

    smh

    I looked at the Facebook friends of the 18-year-old.

    I see what I expected to see.

    Wake up, people.

    I hate hearing/reading things like, "the gun discharged" and "the gun went off" and "he got shot"- like it's some passive activity that can just happen out of the blue on its own. I don't want the kind of gun that has a mind of its own, for sure.

    So sad for you, little one, and all those who knew and loved you. I hope you knew love in your 3 years.

    OMG! What do people think kids do? If a 3 year old does not listen, you get off your butt and remove them from the situation. How are we as a society not transmitting the norms of caring for and understanding the limits of small children, infants?! Even an 18 year old should get this, related or not. I can only think drugs and alcohol are involved. If I see the 18 year olds family crying for him on camera, I may lose it.

    Fly free, Dominic, who brought love and knew love in his brief time with us here.

    May we find in our hearts the way to make our world a safer place for the young lives who are with us.

    Isn't "life in prison" these days about 25 years or less ?
    This perp makes me nauseous.

    Rest and fly with the angels, cute little Dominic !!!

    As of 2015, a life sentence in Texas on a capital murder charge requires 40 years served before a person is eligible for parole.

    http://texasparole.com/?page_id=132

    The news report doesn't say he received a Life Without Parole sentence, so I would guess that possible parole in his distant future was the key bargaining chip.

    No guarantee he will make parole on first eligibility. From what I have heard about him, he will have a difficult time in TDC.

    He will likely find himself in a number of physical encounters as he is a little feller.

    Wichita Falls newspaper reports he will have to serve a minimum of 30 years.
