Toddler Beaten to Death for Crying During World Cup
There really are some sick, sick people in the world. There can’t be many that are more demented than Hector Castro, a 28-year-old man from McAllen, Texas who allegedly beat his 2-year-old stepdaughter to death because she wouldn’t stop crying during the U.S.-Ghana World Cup match. According to police, Castro — an illegal immigrant — shoved a screw down the girl’s throat and called 9-1-1 in an attempt to make it look like she had choked on it and make the death appear to be an accident.
McAllen Police Chief Victor Rodriguez spoke about the incident and voiced an opinion that a lot of us can probably share. Here’s what Rodriguez had to say, courtesy of USA Today via the Monitor:
There are no words for this. It makes you want to think about doing lots of things to this guy, but he will face the criminal justice system just like everybody else. The criminal justice system will spend horrendous amounts of time, effort and money to make these cases. That’s time, effort and money that our regular citizens are deprived of.
It’s unimaginable. I just can’t fathom, you know, a grown adult person beating a 2-year-old to death. I have grandkids and it’s just impossible for me to imagine this kind of behavior.”
If this idiot ever sees the light of day again there’s something seriously wrong with our justice system.
