Posted on 08/30/2013 2:14:41 PM PDT by Hojczyk
An 18-year-old man was convicted of murder in the shooting of a baby who was riding in a stroller alongside his mom in a town in coastal Georgia.
Jurors deliberated about two hours before finding De'Marquise Elkins guilty of 11 counts, including two counts of felony murder and one count of malice murder in the March 21 killing of 13-month-old Antonio Santiago in Brunswick. The man's mother, Karimah Elkins, was on trial alongside him and was found guilty of tampering with evidence but acquitted of lying to police.
De'Marquise Elkins faces life in prison. At the time of the shooting he was 17, too young to face the death penalty under Georgia law.
Sherry West testified that she was walking home from the post office with her son the morning of the killing. A gunman demanding her purse, shot her in the leg and shot her baby in the face after she told him she had no money, she said.
Prosecutors, who declined comment after the verdict, said during trial that De'Marquise Elkins and an accomplice, 15-year-old Dominique Lang, are the ones who stopped West. Prosecutors say the older teen pointed a small .22-caliber revolver at West and demanded money. When West refused several times to turn over the money, Elkins fired a warning shot, shot the woman in the leg and the baby between the eyes, prosecutors said.

That was fast
I’m sure the Old Man is firing up a nice warm reception for this POS.
Paging Eric Holder, paging Eric Holder.. (crickets)
What took them so long???
So I put them in the same general category as the "teen".

Good. At 18 he’ll be old enough for the general population. His life in prison will be a fitting prelude to his afterlife.
In the general prison population, he’ll be killed in short order. That’s almost a guarantee. Let’s hope his ‘brutha’ prison officials don’t protect him.
Oh no!!! Families are going to be separated due to criminal behavior! The illegal immigrant lobby is so against that!
I know, it’s unrelated on the surface,,but connected nonetheless.
I hope when he’s in the general population that they don’t kill him right away,
I do hope they “punish” (Obama’s favorite word) him within an inch of his life on a regular basis. I’d be satisfied if he ends up wishing he was dead.
Sorry Lord,,,I fail.
Rogue illegal vigilante negro.

I was changing channels and came across HLN. They were discussing this and one said since tree were no blacks on the jury, that was grounds for a new trial. They had talked to an alternate juror who was black and she said she wished she had been able to get the others to hear her views. They also talked about the poor quality of life he had had-—no parents to speak of, in and out of jail since he was very young. I do not think he learned anything from that. Bless his little heart. Looks like he is going back to prison.
Tree is there.
No...too young according to a (disgraceful) 2005 Supreme Court ruling by William Rehnquist, Roper v. Simmons.
The more retrials the more exposure,,and the older he gets,,,,,so less time in Juvie and more in the real grown up prison. No childhood trauma can justify shooting a 13 month old between the eyes after counting down from 5.
There is a small chance that man was more savage in pre-recorded history.
Another “Obama” murdering thug son gets his just due!!! Truly an animal!!! What form of low life shoots an innocent infant in the face for a pocketbook???
Aw, heck. You mean it wasn’t society’s fault?
We need to start pushing state and federal legislators to lower the eligibility age for the death sentence. The death sentence should be mandatory in all states, along with a limit (say 2 years) for the time it takes to carry out the sentence. Put these animals in the ground sooner where they belong.
If only the baby had a hoddie, Skittles and an Arizona Tea, this might have been a national story.
Obama’s son found guilty of murder? Amazing.
Predictable (late) Friday afternoon (holiday weekend) news...
I swear, the media, including leftist Hollywood, and our lame leadership should bear responsibility for all racism in the USA.
Read the bible. No way the ancient Hebrews would have let this subhuman POS continue wasting oxygen.
They had to take the time to elect a foreman also.

Why do all these scumbags have these horrible names?
Not really. Those guys weren't governed by laws. This one here did a countdown to murder. There may be more grisly murders and murderers, but this one is the savage.
Very small. They didn't have guns back then so that pussies like this one could so easily kill others.
Back then, he would have used a stick or rock. There have always been bullies.
All the current 'racism' stems from one point in time. It involved one of the (now) wealthiest black women in the United States, whose entire fortune was built from the same starting point.
That, my FRiends, is the TV Miniseries - ROOTS.
A complete lie, from beginning to end, taken(plagiarized) from a book on the life of the JEWS under NAZI OCCUPATION.
No one complained about the plagiarism because the week long debacle made $$$BILLIONS.
That was the start of LIBERAL WHITE GUILT, and of the NEW BLACK ROYALTY.
You know his attorney must have been a moron to propose this line of defense without any real empirical evidence...
How possible is it for a mother of a child to shot their own child in the face...?...in broad daylight for insurance money?
I am sure the jury had women on it...that probably went over well with them ? / S
Sure it's possible but highly improbable...
Versus a teen thug shooting a child in the face...highly likely...
Glad to see his worthless mother got convicted as well...
Back in the 1980's there were tribal cattle raids back and forth along the Kenya-Uganda border. Occasionally you would hear of raiders swinging the infants of their enemy tribe by their heels and bashing them against a rock.
Echos of Psalm 137:9 (read here for a better understanding of what this verse says and does NOT say: "http://www.letusreason.org/Biblexp7.htm" )
Evil and depravity have been with us since the Fall.
"But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God" 2 Timothy 3:1-4
He was conceived in the back of a Mercury?
Is this one of the dear leader’s sons?
17 too young for the death penalty? I almost wished they waited until he was 18 to continue the trial so that he could be sentenced to death.
I guess council for the defense didn’t come up with “Antonio was trying to sell the Perps drugs”, like they did in the 88 yr old Vets case. Or they were standing their ground against Antonio who threatening them. Unfortunately there will be other cases like these still to come. Its all about what we have become.
“The defense had strongly suggested in pretrial motions that the baby’s parents were the killers.”
Yup. The article is trying it’s best to convince readers the killer is innocent.
No blacks in the jury. This story won’t go away anytime soon. I can hear Sharpton screaming already.
“Lack of blacks and young people in jury pool violates De’Marquise Elkins constitutional rights, public defender argues”
to get to the truth of what really happened the Zimmerman precedent is being used by the Obama/Holder Dept. of Just Us and Our People. A toll-free number has been established to call and report any known or suspected racial animosity that the baby had.
.. or a more recent revelation that these white victims were actually drug dealers and the killings were a result of deals gone bad. Did the baby refuse to hand over the drugs his mother sold?
“They had talked to an alternate juror who was black and she said she wished she had been able to get the others to hear her views.”
We have to stop pretending her “black” perspective means anything at all in relation to a “white” perspective.
