Bail denied in girl's slaying: 'There are no words to describe how horrific it is'
Chicago Tribune ^ | November 4, 2011 | Matthew Walberg and Christy Gutowski

DNA and at least three witnesses link a parolee with a lengthy criminal record to the fatal stabbing of a 14-year-old girl who walked in on a burglary at her home in Indian Head Park last week, prosecutors said today.

John L. Wilson Jr., 38, is accused of repeatedly stabbing Kelli O'Laughlin as she arrived home from high school, then using her cell phone to send taunting text messages to her mother. He was finally arrested as authorities tracked the phone.

Couple all that with the fact that our fair State has effectively ended the death penalty. So we’ll get to pay to feed, house, and medic this animal for the rest of his life.

What he deserves is a fair trial and a first class hanging.

They let this loser out on parole and it cost a child her life. Whoever was responsible for that decision can never give her back to her parents.

In cases like this, “cruel and unusual,” should be defined applying the criminal’s own criteria. By his standards, multiple stabbings and psychological torture are well within the realm of acceptable behavior and he should be treated to the same.

Perhaps he could be hung by the neck for life. Granted, his life sentence might only last a few minutes, but it wouldn’t be the death penalty...

They should be on trial right next to him.

“He had problems, psychiatric problems. He needs an assessment.”
What caliber would you like for that assessment? I think .45 is good.

I'm hearing a report almost daily in San Diego of someone assaulted or killed by persons recently released from prison. Many of those criminals on the street are the consequence of a judicial order to reduce crowding in the prisons. My personal opinion is that the judge who issued that ruling and remedy should be charged as an accessory to any murder committed by individuals released under that ruling. If that has a "chilling effect" on the judiciary, then that accomplishes the intent. Sitting in a black robe should not immunize a judge from responsibility for a bad decision. Releasing a convicted felon on the streets is no different than turning loose a vicious dog in a crowd of people.

Sovereign immunity assures us of an incompetent government. The notion that competent people would not go into public service is laughable on its face. It's hard to imagine it could get worse if public sector workers were libel for incompetent work.

You people ALWAYS post the news source with the least detail.

You should be lauded for bringing news like this to the attention of the public, but ever take a moment to find a better source?

Once again, overseas media gives more information.

Pics of perp and victim:

It has been revealed that at around 8pm on the night of the killing, a Willow Springs police officer responding to another disturbance near the O'Laughlin home stopped Wilson Jr.

No doubt he would have been accused of profiling if he had taken him in for questioning.

“If he’s fit for trial, why is he doing so much negativity in custody?” Dantzler said he told the judge in 2002. “Throwing feces on the guards. You don’t do stuff like that. My grandma did not raise us to be like that.”

And there you have it, America 2011, in so much of a nutshell.

That hanging you recommend should happen immediately after the guilty verdict.

The law should be as follows:

Anyone threatening or using violence, or carrying or using a weapon in the commission of a felony crime, will be sentenced to death upon conviction. No other sentence is possible. This person & any accomplices are totally & solely responsible for ALL damages, injuries, or deaths as a result of their crime.

Furthermore, anyone committing the above crime will immediately lose all their civil & HUMAN rights until they turn themselves in, are captured, or killed. That is to say, shooting them is legal if they will not immediately surrender.
