    This story does not say what kind of disability the person has. I have a cousin who receives disability payments from the state. He is a complete jerk to everyone, including his wife, and when her brothers threaten him because of his behavior, he says, "Go ahead and hit me. I'll have you charged with assaulting a handicapped person." This story needs more facts.

    "come on people have you ever heard of innocent until proven guilty? the police probably got a hold of his DNA from the database and planted it on the victim. the police officer that charged him should be in jail."

    I need some of what you are on...just a small dose because I would not want to end up like you

    How did this comment get by the censors? Where did you obtain your degree? A cereal box? There are many reasoned and ration justications for the death penalty

    Maybe he was just telling him a joke. "What did the five fingers say to the face?"
