Rest in peace, little boy.
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.
How cute is this little guy?! I'm so sorry Dominic, rest in peace.
My heart I have a 3 year old. Why?
Precious Dominic deserved so much more out of life! This is so heartbreaking.
RIP Dominic [emoji257]
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.
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.
