Dont get me wrong I am sorry a baby is dead way to early it breaks my heart
It's disgusting how in every one of your posts "Snake", you don't sound the slightest bit sorry for anyone except for the ignorant waste of time that will someday have to answer to a jury far greater than this community. Asking for a new trial is by far the most stupid and Insensitive thing I have ever witnessed! If your baby, your innocent little girl, died at the hands of ANYONE--WHAT WOULD YOU DO? HOW WOULD YOU FEEL? The biggest question I have for you---
would you want to Relive the entire ordeal all over again because the CONVICTED piece of S?*# decided he was Sorry? It was an oops and he didn't mean to??
He deserves NOTHING more than to sit with his guilt and shame for the rest of eternity and then some. God will be the Judge and the Jury someday, rest assured, if Anyone knows the events that transpired that evening it is Him.
My heart and prayers are with Taegans' family.

This was an extremely brutal crime, showing a mentality devoid of humanity or conscience.

I have always wondered why the girlfriend/sitter was not charged as an accomplice.

Jose Garcia's family: do you really support him? I mean, I'm sure you love him - but support him? And, what are you supporting? His murder and torture of a baby? Are you saying he is innocent? Cause, otherwise, this doesn't make any sense. And, we all know he isn't innocent, so that doesn't make sense, either. This is a serious question - cause I am not understanding.

Another question I have is: why do you threaten the McKinney family? I think their reaction to all of this is normal. What is unfair about their feelings? Again, I am not understanding.

I do realize you must have agonizing feelings of despair, fear and sadness about your relative; but, it seems like, if you really love him, you will encourage him to keep his yap shut and do his time the best he can. Cause, frankly, he got a "killer" deal. Do you all not realize that this could go quite a bit worse for him. And, if he ever gets out of jail, he would have to move away. Aztec can be a tight community and even those of us who do not even know one McKinney, do not want him here.

<quoted text>Wow some people really are ignorant and you really top the list maybe if he had parents that were worth a dam and taught him not to be a savage animal then he would have controlled his actions and had respect for HUMAN LIFE. Beer was not purchased for minors and even still that gives no justification for MURDERING A CHILD. MAYBE HAD IT BEEN HIS STUPID SISTERS BABY THEN HIS FAMILY WOULD NOT BE TRYING TO JUSTIFY THE LIFE OF AN INNOCENT CHILD BEING TAKEN. FACE IT YOU SUCK AS PARENTS AND AS PEOPLE. HE KILLED HER BABY BEFORE SHE EVEN GOT OFF WORK AND WHEN SHE CALLED FROM WORK THEY LIED AND TOLD HER EVERYTHING WAS OK. SO GET AN EDUCATION AND NOT IN DRIVE BYS AND BABY STOMPING. QUIT WASTING MY TAX DOLLARS
Thats right! The sister and cop cousin of that F&$%@$* puke Jose were involved in a drive by a couple yrs ago. Shows the lack of respect for someone elses life or anything else, that they were taught! That whole family is Fu3$ed up!

Yeah, there's just something about brutally murdering a helpless, innocent baby that stirs up a little bit of hate. I guess people shouldn't go around doing that, huh.

Well Put.Forgiveness is a hard pill to swallow. But it must be done for life(meaningful life) to continue. When Jose repents he will be forgiven by the Almighty, as humans we are not above our Lord Jesus Christ. Forgive and move on as the child is in the presence of our God.

....and I'm absolutely certain both families are terribly hurt and destroyed.

But I gotta tell you, public sympathy, and rightly so, goes to the innocent victim and her family, so when ANY member of the Garcia family or their friends come here and posts ugly, threatening words, it's almost unbelievably unfeeling and a slap in the face on top of the heinous crime to the family and friends of that innocent baby. There is absolutely no justification for that.

I suggest the Garcia family just back off and try not to appear so arrogant, because that's exactly how they are coming across.(I will include the friends of Garcia, as well.)

Thinker... change your name... I don't think the McKinney’s or the Garcia's have the hate in them that I have seen you vent in 5 min of talking to you through postings... I'll speak to Jan and see how she feels; she has a huge heart and is a kind person... I know she hurts; a piece of her is missing! But I can guarantee Jan's heart is still bigger than yours

Look, I think it takes some hella big balls for ANY member of the Garcia family (or their friends) to come here to this forum and insult in any way any member of the innocent baby murder victim's family. How dare any of them do that, and this forum gives several examples of just that.

Do they really think that will sway public opinion in a positive manner? Of course it won't; in fact, it will have only the opposite effect.

If you're this thin-skinned, think how the family of the murdered child must feel.

Now, I'll mince no words--get your self-righteous ass outta here and don't moralize or give advice to anyone here, especially to members of the murdered child's family. You have no point. The baby and her family are the only ones with a justifiable point.

The Garcia guy has his hands full defending his baseless position. I can't see how his family members are doing anything to help him by coming here and acting like a bunch of threatening rednecks.

This probably does not include all his family membere; I'm speaking of those that have chosen to run their sorry mouths here in this forum. Unbelievable.

So, if someone beat the shit out of your daughter, stompped on her chest and put her 6 feet under before she even got to her 2nd birthday... you would forgive them? I sure and the hell wouldn't! And I am pretty sure CODY AND JEWEL don't forgive him either, rightfully so! Cody and Jewel lost their baby, not Jan. Yeah, Jan lost her grandbaby but Cody and Jewel had to burry their child. What parent wants to do that? Jose deserves to be hated.
