I am sad and ashamed to admit that demon is my first cousin. even though I have not seem him simce he was a baby, I am absolutely disgusted by what that monster did. I hope to god (forgive me Aunt Lori-Nathans mother) they give him exactly what he deserves. And thank the lord that his half brothers and sisters didn't turn out like him, he is evil and what he did to that little boy and his family is unforgiveable. I vote the death penalty 100%- even if he is family.

VERY HAPPY TO HEAR HE WAS FOUND GUILTY-NO ONE DESERVES THE DEATH PENALTY MORE THAN SHAW,HE SHOWED NO REMORSE AT ALL,HOLDING HIS HEAD UP HIGH,LIKE HES PROUD OF WHAT HE DID,HE WASNT HANDCUFFED OR SHACKLED OR ANYTHING,AND HE SHOULD HAVE BEEN(WHY WAS HE TREATED SO SPECIAL)HE BEAT UP SEVERAL PRISON GUARDS AND STOLE THE BOYS MOTHERS CAR,AND HE WASNT HANDCUFFED DURING ANY OF THE PROCEDURES-NOT RIGHT AT ALL,HE COULD HAVE RAN. I HOPE THAT LITTLE BOYS FACE HAUNTS HIM TILL HES DEAD.HES THE WORST MONSTER I HAVE EVER READ ABOUT,LET HIM DIE SOON,HES TOTALLY DISGUSTING AND MEAN

that little boy was beaten and killed by this manic,monster who showed NO remorse or sadness at ALL, and jurors dotn give him the death penalty, WRONG!,why should taxpayers watch him smile and get fed everyday.That little boy had his whole life ahead of him and because of Nathan shaw ,its ended,He suffered so much and a small child is innocent and defensive , My heart goes out tho Jared's mother and grandmother.

Hopefully that little boys face will haunt him while hes in prison getting treated so good, but I doubt it ,its plain to see he has NO heart and is happy he didnt get the death penalty.Which he should have,ANYONE who kills a child,SHOULD get it no matter what
a shame

That little boy didnt stand a chance ,and he suffered beyond belief, its hard to imagine,them taking that long to even give frist degree to him,Never should ahvae taken long at all,Guess its WHo and What you are that counts in the so called justice system! All child killers should be given the death penalty,No child deserves to be beated and murdered.IM outraged,NO one deserved it more thatn Shaw,he smiled all the time on Tv,he doenst feel bad at all abotu what he did to that small child
lies

How Nathan Shaw had the nerve to sit in court and lie yet ,about that night,is terible,he lies,kills,steals and most of the time,he wasnt even handcuffed taken into the court house or into the car.Not right,Hes a liar,theft,child murderer,rapist,women beater and more,He wanted jurors to feel sorry for him,with his pretense to like that little boy,He didnt have to kill him at all,he could have put him in another room,or locked him in a closet or something,anything would have been better than beating him,choking him and putting a knife over 4inches deep in to his little neck,,very mean ,evil and cruel, He is more than disgusting and he has the nerve to smile,and hold his head High up in the air
Appalled by verdict

I just heard that Nathan Shaw did not get the death penalty in his trial for killing that poor child. I have a 6 year old grand daughter and I can't image anyone doing that to her. Nathan Shaw did not give that poor boy the option to live or die. What a big man Nathan Shaw must think he is to murder and defenseless child and rape his mother. The only saving grace may be that once he gets to prison he will pay for what he did. Child abusers and murders are not well liked in prison. I hope he sees that boys face day and night.I feel so bad for the mother and family and they have my deepest sympathy. Oviously, Mr. Shaw could have used an anger management coarse, hopefully none of his fellow prisoners have had one either so he can see what it is like to be abused and possibly die because of it. Even Hell is not an appropriate place to put him.

I can't believe that they jury didn't give the freaking asshole the death penalty!! I grew up in Tyrone, and unfortuantly, went to school with the jerk, until he dropped out. I was home for Chirstmas when it all happened. As a teacher myself, I am disgusted with the outcome of this case. I watch the feed from news stations in PA, and for him to walk around with the smirk on his face, no remorse, and his head held high...he's nothing but a gutless MURDERER!! My heart goes out to little Jared's mother, grandmother, and family!!!

indeed he did have a smirk,grin and even a smile on his ugly disgusting face,what a low life to harm a child,showed no remorse,no sadness ,nothing but joy was in his face,he was so sure he was going to get away with it with his lies and being a white killer.i have 4 children myself and i couldnt stand it if someone murdered them,little children are joys and should be protected and able to grow up to become adults ,

It's a shame we're going to pay for this waste of air. "SINCE HES WHITE,HE WONT GET THE DEATH PENALTY." That is just a stupid comment. Why does it always have to be racial. I think he should be sitting in jail waiting to die.

i do have to say it was not all of the jurors only the woman in the front row who hesitated and looked at the sob and cried, not for jared for the murderer, her face i will never forget.she will have to live with herself and maybe one day face jared for her part in freeing his killer. i just hope that he will die in jail but slow and long the way my bub jared did .thank you for your support

I would like to thank everyone that has good in them for supporting my daughter and family through this time , i can tell you that jared was an amazing little boy with a big heart and more compassion for a 6 yr old i have ever seen, he did not deserve no matter what to be killed .period!!!!!, and the sob family especially his dad gary who told us up to the end he wanted death then to lie ,he sat in the da office with us, was he trying to get info to take back to the defense? i have no idea but one does wonder, when my daughter was fighting with her life for jared who helped her? no one, then there is my granddaughter who watched the whole thing and can tell you about that nite, it was no accident . she has to live with this for the rest of her life . i guess the sob family forgot about her and jared and chrissy, i lost faith in the system, they did not protect my family but went out of there way for the murder. by the way pasquerrlo told the jurors that the sob will suffer if they give him the needles , did he not see the pictures of my grandson that scum bag was proud to get this murderer off.did he not hear that my grandson suffered more then one should in a life time . one wonder how he sleeps at nite. but they say money is the root of all evil. ALL I PRAY FOR IS THAT THE SOB WILL GET HIS IN JAIL. and to the grandfather paul keep bragging that the sob gets along with everyone in jail, you see he will be with the big boys now and not blair county , but i guess that is something i would be bragging about myself. to his mom lori when they showed the pictures of jared you where smiling , i hope i get to do the same when you get the news they just killed your son. thank you for listening we miss and love jared more then words can say. please never forget jared

Nathan Shaws family sounds as heartless as Nathan is,to smile at looking at a little boys lifeless body laying in blood,,morons ,like there son, I am a mother/grandmother and I love me 5 grandkids endlessly so i can relate to the love you feel for yoru grandchildren, Jared will always be in your heart,i have to wonder how this nightmare will effect your granddaughter as she grows up,the memory is enbarked in her mind and memories of it ,no doubt will come out ,You seem like a loving grandmother,I wish you the best,Im sure its hard to deal with a death of a child,
jurors

#19 Jan 23, 2007
Nathan Shaw must have smiled at that woman juror in front row,so she liiked him,she didnt seem to care about the death of the little boy -who never got to live his life .I have to wonder about these jurors,in any case,about ther fairness, Thats why Nathan Shaw wanted to take the stand,to put abig front on for the jurors so his lies would get to them and they would feel sorry for him,Hes a smooth opearator ,you can tell by the way he smiled,laughed and held his head up high
violent

Morann, PA

#20 Jan 25, 2007
It seems that no matter how violent Nathan Shaw is ,he still got away with the beating of guards at 2 different prisons,they didnt put him in the so called HOLE,they didnt bring charges against him for it,They Just moved him to another prison,so he got away with that violent act,It still shows the public,that it pays to be white to do a crime,You get treated mcuh better by everyone!!!!
