And once again, my philosophical objection to the death penalty is, shall we say, severely tested.
A Michigan man has pleaded guilty to raping an 18-month-old girl and recording the act to sell to other child molesters, including his older brother, reports say.
The Detroit Free Press reports that Eric Devin Masters, 29, pleaded guilty to three counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct in Kent County Circuit Court on Tuesday.
Masters is already in jail serving a 50-year sentence for a previous charge of exploiting children. Investigators learned of the rape of the toddler during that investigation.
In the previous trial, Masters was found guilty of exploiting, raping, and making still and video images of a number of children between 2010 and 2012. In particular was a video made of his rape of a small girl on Christmas Day in 2011, on Masters’s birthday.
My God. This isn’t anything resembling a man we’re talking about here; he’s a monster, plain and simple. Someone should have just cut his throat long ago, and to Hell with him. If the state of Michigan is seeking volunteers for the job, consider my hand as being in the air, and waving eagerly.
