    Our judicial system is a REAL joke sometimes! 19 months for twisting the leg of HIS OWN NEWBORN daughter? Who’s the idiot judge who let this LOSER cop this plea?!?! Try this on for size, put this loser in a boxing ring with someone ten times his size and see how he likes it…
    I suppose his supporters will make excuses for him poor thing that he is under SO much pressure as a young father…well next time think before you put yourself in that position!
