THIS MAN MAY HAVE LOST HIS MIND FOR A MOMEMENT BUT THE WAY I SEE IT AN EYE FOR AN EYE,FIND THIS MAN GUILTY AND PUT HIM TO DEATH NOT GIVE HIM A CHECK AND SEND ON HIS WAY.HE SHOULD NOT GET A CHANCE TO LIVE AFTER WHAT HE DONE TO HIS OWN SON IT IS UNFORGIVEABLE.THE ONLY ONES I FEEL SORRY FOR IS HIS FAMILY,BUT WHY SHOULD HE GET THE CHANCE TO LIVE AND MAYBE DO THIS TO SOMEONE ELSE.

Can someone please let me know if this nut case has been charged yet? I have been lookin all over all websites and cannot find anything recent about this case. My son went to school with little Shane, and it broke his heart when he found out Shane was killed, and then he was heartbroken even worse when he found out Shanes own father did that to him.How could a man love a child, his own blood, for 9 yrs, then do to him what he did?! I just dont get it.Every day since little Shanes death I hug my children and tell them how much I love them ,and what they mean to me.Shane Sr. needs to burn in hell, just like he told the officers and fire crew when they arrived!!! Anyway, I have been dying to know what became of Shane sr..if anyone has heard anything about his case, please let me know

He was a very close friend of teh family and you sould like you don't know the whole story about Shane. He hassome medical problems. I am not saying that what he did was right, ut you shouldn't run you mouth unless you know all the facts.

how could anyone do something so unspeakable to an innocent child?especially their own child..so many times these baby killers plead insanity and get by with what they have done thats just not right..i think that monster should get the maximum punishment for what he did to that little boy!

I persinally as the cousin of little shane think it was not only the fathers fault but the juvinal court systm what everyone may not remember a couple years befor his own father killed him he wanted the son to stab the father in the chest. it was on ten tv news and the 911 call were little shane was talking. for the court sytem to give back costudy rights to his father is assinie. He should have been place with the mother or grandmother for his own safty. Not trying to defend anyone at all in this. pretty much all im trying to say is court system is fucked up corin gault should of had her son and no one else after the first inncodent. court system is wrong and should put more care and effort in there cases.

Dont worry about it. Contrary to what most people believe, just because he is family does not mean you have to be loyal to him. Not if it means standing up for wrong.

I think maybe, sometimes courts/prosecutors will drag their heels waiting for public sentiment to die down, so they can deal with the matter their way, Low Key, You know, Deals made behind closed doors, without lots of public outcry. know it sounds farfetched, but it is often done.

Well, I can say that the fact that he was found naked and bloody in his yard and the boy died of multiple stab wounds is enough facts for me. The man should die a thousand deaths in my mind. I have 2 nine yr olds, and not for one second could I stand to imagine what was going through that poor childs mind as his father was stabbing him to death. It brings me to tears to think about it! God Bless that little boy! I would love to hear any part of this story that would make you feel like you needed to stand up for him. I mean really, are you serious?

My Uncle's and mom were very close to Shane Sr. I've heard how he has all kinds of mental problems, I'm not going to stand up for this man, it was wrong what he did to Shane Jr. But never in a million years would I wish someone dead, you all should be ashamed of yourseleves, no one deserves to die for what they have done. No one should be judgeing anyone except GOD! GOD knows whether or not Shane Sr. was hearing voices and did this crime because of them, I just feel sorry for all of you people wishing that he would rot in Hell. I'm a Christian and yes murder is wrong and is never exceptabe, but it's called LOVE thy person HATE thy sin! GOD is going to judge Shane Sr. for his crime, and if Shane Sr. turned his life over to The Lord and has asked for forgiveness for his sins and is really sorry for what he has done, then there is not one thing that any of us can say or do about it. It is up to GOD not us!

So Bean you are saying turn all murders-rapest-baby killers etc.loose for no judge had a right to judge them for it has to be God judge then?What if it was you mother father brother or baby killed would u want then judged or just let go? If you believe in the then you believe in someone being judged by man.

I know the family and just like Donna stated an eye for an eye !!!! Yeah his dad done wrong
And people feel sorry for him, but when you have a defenseless little child that can't defend himself !!! I look at it this way no I don't wish anybody dead but when you do something like this to your own flesh and blood!!! Medical issues don't mean crap to me. He should die a very slow painfull death!!! But when he gets in prison
He will find out in there that you don't hurt a child in this world and I also want to say this the good lord above will never have to even put up with this sick low life because this man will rot in hell but it sickens me that this man will have the opportunity to live in prison and live the remainder of it behind bars!! When his son will never get to live laugh or love !! May Sr. Suffer with every breath that he may take and it's a shame he is getting the extra air that his son would be consuming.

Why isn't this POS in prison yet? The legal system allows trials to be drug out for much too long!

I'm not saying to let these people go...and I don't believe anyone should be judged by anyone but GOD, I'm not saying that these people should be let free, but GOD will judge all of us when our time comes. What Shane Sr. did is in GOD's hands, the man was suffering from mental problems, he should have never been left alone with his child.

I was once a sinner, I ran around doing dumb things, but then I went to an amazing church and realized how much I want to be with The Lord, and I gave everything up, the cursing, the drinking, the making fun of people. GOD never gives up on anyone, who are you to say that Shane doesn't have a chance? Everyone has a chance!
