Last Week, Two Gunmen Killed a Sleeping Girl

while firing shots into her apartment. They claim to have been seeking revenge against a third man who lived there, for an earlier fistfight.

They and their driver were arrested almost immediately afterward, but today, there's this:
Man accused in girl's murder winks at victim's family during court appearance 

The second of three people charged with murder in the shooting death of 15-year-old Precious Alex while she slept early Tuesday in a Mountain View apartment appeared in court Thursday at the Anchorage Jail.

At the hearing, a judge ordered 24-year-old Jamal Townsend to be held on $1.5 million cash bail. Townsend and 28-year-old Lamar Burney are charged with murder, attempted murder and assault. Their alleged getaway driver, 21-year-old Karlie West, is charged with murder and assault.

(snip) The rest of the small courtroom gallery was packed with the victim's family, some standing to Townsend's left. Through the glass separating them, Townsend winked at the family at one point.

There are natural and legal consequences to one's actions, apart from God's law or forgiveness. This fellow shows no remorse, and in point of fact, appears to think it's cute or clever.

The court should show him no mercy.

The monsters have no soul but somehow manage day to day activities. I suppose when you already have nothing to lose, you can't lose more.

Too true, Max. As the Bible says, "And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; 29 being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, 30 backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them." (Romans 1:28-30, emphasis added)

Rev. Paul,


The courts should show no mercy, no bond, and justice for the loss of this young girl.
