BRUNSWICK, Ga. (AP) - A Georgia teen convicted of fatally shooting a baby in a stroller was sentenced Thursday to spend the rest of his life in prison with no chance of parole after the grieving mother asked a judge to punish the gunman for taking "the love of my life."

De'Marquise Elkins, 18, stood silent and showed no emotion as he was sentenced in a courtroom less than two weeks after a jury found him guilty of murder in the slaying of 13-month-old Antonio Santiago during a robbery attempt.

Yeah. There’s the adversarial system of legal representation, and then there’s dishonest abuse of this system. Those arguments, including “presenting other suspects”, are in the second group.

We have raised up generations of uncivilized barbarians and savages.

This whole family is messed up. His mother was convicted of evidence tampering for helping dispose of the gun.

His sister and aunt are facing charges as they were helping him avoid prosecution.

Do any of these people have any moral compass at all, or are they just savages???

I may get banned for this, because it violates political corretness given the race of the criminal. But this is where we are with ghetto culture. Life means nothing to these people. Yet we are supposed to feel sorry for the legacy of slavery and Jim Crow laws, according to liberals.

Maybe his baby and unarmed mom handling experience will help him handle his fellow inmates.

He certainly knows how to take care of business when he's armed and up against defenseless civilians.

I think there should be a closed circuit camera in his cell that the family can turn on at any time and then mock and ridicule him at any moment...... making life in prison a very very long time.

You just answered your own question.

Sorry, but I thought your post was so good I would repeat it. Just to add to what you posted, these people also think that it is open season on Caucasians. We are deluged daily with dispatches from the front lines of the race war.

He was 17 when he committed the crime and the USSC said we can’t give the death penalty to minors. It’s in the article.

One who has no money. He didn't get her purse after he shot her either. Wonder what he got for shooting the Pastor.

20 years ago, I stated that when “crack babies” grew up, they would commit heinous crimes.

Sadly, my prediction came true.

These feral creatures are the result of crack-smoking ghetto hoochie mama’s that were smoking crack while pregnant and were doing so while “raising” their crack damaged kids.

Add in a POTUS that wants a race war and this is the result.

Google “The Color of Crime”

That's OK, he'll show lots of emotions in prison when they learn about his crime. Other inmates don't like criminals who commit acts against children, and I suspect the prison guards might be tempted to look the other way.

You need to understand tribal mentality. The baby he shot wasn't black, therefore it was OK, and the important thing was to protect your fellow black. If the races were reversed, the cities would have all burned by now.

Only a barbaric society would agree to such a sentence.

Any civilized people, realizing their civilization was on the balance of the justice scales, would have sentenced him to be executed.

the race war in america has begun thanks to obama and holder, exploiting ,st skittles.

they refuse to do anything about the epidemic black on white hate crimes.

they pass obamacare to deal with euthanizing baby boomers, that are mostly white. they have the ability to deny care based on skin color/quotas in obamacare. the language is in the bill.

do not forget the media who refuses to call it what it is.

do not forget the police who never see black hate crimes even when statements clearly show they are, and if the attackers were white and said the same kinds of things, they’d have no problem calling them hate crimes.

From what I read, she did and didn’t have any money so the killer said he was going to shoot her baby.

How long do you suppose it will take a lawyer paid with your hard-earned tax dollars and mine and a tame Democratic [sic] party judge to reduce his sentence and spring him loose on parole in a very few years?

I agree. He’s shot 3 people, killing one. Those are only the ones we know about. Society has a right to protect itself from predators by executing them.

Just for reference the mention of her purse in the article was by the perps,,not the woman’s version.

“West and a younger teenager charged as an accomplice testified at trial that Elkins killed the baby after his mother refused to give up her purse.”

You read what the perpetrators say and then ask a question about what kind of mom the baby has?

That may not happen. He has shot 3 people that we know about. He may very well have shot more. Only his lawyers think he’s a victim. An appeals court, hopefully, will disagree.
