This is disturbing and disheartening. The murder of this young child is beyond horrible. My heart breaks for the girl and her family. But what should also be disturbing to us all is the characterization of the relationship between the murderer and his victim.
She was NOT a girlfriend. She was a child victim of sexual abuse. She was 14, he is 22.
To characterize the relationship as anything other than abusive is evil. Normalizing adult/child sexual activity is wrong. Period. The killer should not be facing 25 to life. There should be no possibility for him to walk free ever again. #childsexabuse http://ow.ly/Fg1Xx
