Monsters among us: If man charged with murder of Hailey Owens is guilty, he should die

I am the father to two daughters now aged 20 and 17. I am constantly praying for God’s hedge of protection over them. And I know back in December 2003, my worst fear was for them when we retired here to South Florida and had to live relatively unprotected amongst the “civilian” population. Unfortunately, that fear came to fruition at the doorstep of the parents of Hailey Owens.

As reported by Fox News.com,A middle-school football coach was charged Wednesday with first-degree murder in the death of a 10-year-old girl who was snatched off a street just blocks from her southwest Missouri home as several residents watched in horror.

Craig Michael Wood who also faces kidnapping and armed criminal action charges is accused of kidnapping fourth-grader Hailey Owens in Springfield as she walked home from a friend’s house Tuesday evening. Patterson said the girl had been shot in the head. Wood was inside a truck parked outside his small, single-story home in Springfield when police arrested him Tuesday night. A probable cause statement released Wednesday said the 45-year-old Wood was holding a roll of duct tape in his hands when officers arrived, and that the girl’s body was found stuffed inside two garbage bags in a basement where the floor was still damp from bleach.

Witnesses told investigators that a man in a gold 2008 Ford Ranger pickup truck drove down the street several times before abducting Hailey. Resident Ricky Riggins told the Springfield News-Leader he chased the fleeing pickup in his car after a neighbor tried to pull the girl away. “I couldn’t keep up,” Riggins told the newspaper. “He was probably five to six cars ahead of me. … It was so fast.”

I want to commend the neighbors including Ricky Riggins for their efforts to save little Hailey. It renews my faith to know there are those will who protect our most vulnerable, our children. Thanks as well to the local police who quickly acted and apprehended this animal. Police say Wood has not talked to investigators since his arrest — beasts cannot talk.

As a father, I can tell you I would not want to wait more than a year for justice to be served to this monster. The evidence is indeed overwhelming and verified by several eye witnesses. If there was ever a case where a trial should be held immediately, I cannot think of one. A message has to be sent to those who would harm the least of us all.

And yes, I would support the death penalty — how interesting that liberal progressives often feel compassion for criminals and murderers but not for unborn children – but that’s a topic for another day.

To the dads out there, especially those who have daughters, please love them, honor them, and protect them from those who seek to harm them. If it were my daughter, and Woods is found guilty, then turn him over to me. I have zero tolerance to anyone who harms a child – whether sexual abuse or any other injury.

To Hailey’s parents, please accept my humble condolences and to Hailey, God has welcomed you into His arms where there is no pain, no suffering. I am so sorry that your life, so short, had to be taken in such a violent manner.

Bob, there is a method to such seeming “madness” in your mind. God’s Word (Bible) calls for the protection of innocent life and the death penalty for rapists and murderers. Let me give you some Scriptural clues, my friend: (From God’s Covenant with Noah and his descendents) Genesis 9:5-6, “5 And for your lifeblood I will surely demand an accounting. I will demand an accounting from every animal. And from each human being, too, I will demand an accounting for the life of another human being. 6 “Whoever sheds human blood, by humans shall their blood be shed; for in… Read more »

I’m pro-life as well. Anyone who takes an innocent life should die.

If you can’t distinguish between the life of this little girl, the life of a brand-new baby, and the life of this monster….well, you are an idiot.
Abortionists and their supporters view innocent life as garbage to be destroyed and thrown out (kind of like how this monster viewed a 10-year-old girl’s life), and view a monster who kills children as deserving to live and be taken care of. This is the opposite of reasonable, moral, and just. Very sick viewpoint.
How in the world can you read about this and side with the murderer?

psychenudity

Seriously? Being Pro Life is for a baby’s RIGHT to live to see the outside of a mother’s womb. A baby/fetus cannot defend itself, & has no “voice”. A grown man knows what’s wrong & what’s right & has the full mental capacity to choose HOW they will live their life. Should they choose to murder a person (a defenseless child, no less!) then they should be put to the death. It’s pretty clear, plain & simple….why is that distinction so hard to comprehend?

Joe Black

Because the criminal is a scourge to society and deserves to rot in hell. Next question!

I’m a pro-lifer and I’ve killed 136 in combat. I fight for the defenseless of any age, sex or race. This person killed an innocent child, he needs to die because of what he’s done. In combat you kill the enemy because they are trying to kill you and yours. In life you fight and kill for the same principles.

Being a pro-lifer doesn’t necessarily make you a pacifist.

Bob…it says in the BIBLE, if you TAKE a life, you are to give YOURS in return. It’s a PROVEN FACT, that you can’t rehabilitate these BEASTS, I Know—I worked in a prison. I AM pro-life; I don’t believe in abortion; but if you commit a crime against a child; you SHOULD DIE—-it would make a lot of these animals stop and think before acting out. It’s because of the Bleeding Heart Liberals that this countrys’ prison system is overwhelmed and the judicial system is so corrupt!!!

Rena
Guest

I look at it this way… there is a difference in abortion and death penalty… an unborn child knows nothing of this world and should not be punished for the sins of their parents. Murderers such as this man, is grown, has had life and knows how precious life is. He knows right from wrong and should be executed straight away… Save the tax payers money and get it done with immediately,, there is no question as to who did it… he deserves no mercy.

Michelle
Guest

Pro life is reserved for the innocent. Babies who have the chance to grow up to be healers, leaders, and productive members of society. When a human, and I use that term loosely, chooses to take the life of an innocent child, he doesn’t deserve to take another breath.

BobF50

Killing an animal is slightly different unless you just aren’t bright enough to know the difference. One has a chance to become a decent human and one gave up that chance. I don’t know why this is so hard for so many.

CJ

I don’t understand it either. People like him have forfeit their right to live.

CJ

You can be pro-life and support the death penalty for monsters like this. Being pro-life towards innocence in the womb is completely different.

As a dad I can say this. This animal would die. If I had to find a way to do it in a court room, he would die. They can do with me what they want after. But would watch the life drain from this animal with no more remorse that killing a mosquito.

Diane

And how does life go on for the parents and family of this little girl? What a horrific act of violence against this dear child. Yes….he deserves to die. No ten yr. old would have a chance next to an animal like that.

Jess
Guest

I’ve always supported the death penalty, but especially so in cases like this. A monster like this should not be allowed to exist on the planet. There is no way in hell our tax dollars should go towards taking care of said monster. Anyone who kills a child needs to be wiped off the face of the earth.

CJ

It’s easy, for crimes as heinous as this: You get to appeal the
verdict within a year. If you don’t appeal and you were found guilty you
hang. There is no reason we should pay for them to live. Rope is cheap,
they don’t deserve an ounce of compassion.

Thank you, Allen West, for speaking for all decent people. This news has been torturing my mind all day, and everything you said is so right on.

Thank you for your post.

Easy. If he’s found guilty, name him as an outlaw (outside the confines of the law) and let the family do with him as they please. If it were me, i’d castrate him with a dull knife and let him bleed out. Give him a shot of adrenaline so he doesn’t pass out.

This should make you feel better:
President Obama has named Hamas adviser Robert O. Malley the senior director at the National Security Council (NSC). You may recall that Malley was foreign policy adviser to then-presidential candidate Barack Obama in 2007, and was fired from his campaign team in 2008 because of his notorious ties to Hamas, the PLO and other jihadist, anti-Israel groups.

As a society we cannot permit monsters like this to walk among us.
Warehousing them for life serves no purpose…they will never be rehabilitated. They will never understand the complete wrongness of what they have done.
Execute them.
And if you cannot stomach tje act give them to those of us who can.
I have no problem putting down a dangerous animal.

Sharon Sullivan
Guest

Agreed. But there are ONLY two differences between guys like this and the untold numbers of Catholic priests in this country who aren’t thrown in the slammer or executed:

1. Their leaders hide them and their crimes; and when caught, they’re forgiven – “above the law.”

2. They don’t kill their tiny victims; they just keep raping them + threatening them, until they grow up, ruined for life.

Colonel West, we moved to Springfield after my husband retired from the Air Force, it is a college town and people are so friendly and nice, and to have a MONSTER like this in our wonderful town is scary!!! I agree with you, the most terrible long suffering death would be too good for him, God forgive me. He will get his reward in the hottest of HELL because the Bible says “Revenge is mine, saith the Lord of Hosts”. Wish you were our President!!!

Jury verdict, jury execution…pray for this guy’s soul because this kind of action to me is demonic in nature (I’m a father of 4). I’m for the death penalty but tire of the “they must die” rhetoric when we, by definition, hand it over to someone else to do the dirty work by the system. Our society is so lost at times, we all aren’t worthy to stand before the Lord, not one of us. Yea, this guy needs to be removed from society if it’s proven he’s guilty, evil knows no parameter. Prayers definitely go out to the mourning… Read more »

There is no legal method of execution that is suitable for crimes like this. The issue isn’t justice it’s revenge and to deter those would commit similar acts. At present this man is innocent and will be until a just says otherwise. At times like this my emotions rail against our Constitution. But the Constitution must be held above my outrage. he has the right to a fair and public trial. if convicted he cannot be subjected to cruel or unusual punishment. Which is a shame because if he is indeed guilty he will rate the cruelest and most unusual… Read more »

No but there is something cruel and unusual about injecting him with smallpox, and put in a room without food or water so he can suffer as much as possible before he expires. That’s what i meant by there is no legal means of execution that fit crimes like this.

Some things are better left unspoken. They in our hearts, put there by God, to perform the deeds that no other can rightly judge.

Just like the Fort Hood killer he will spend a long time on death row or never get there in the first place. I have never understood those who defend animals like this.

Hopefully Missouri carries thru with the death penalty. States where Lefty Liberals took over (for instance, Washington state), feel more sorry for a murderer than they do victims of murderers.

For a crime like this, if Craig M.

The world will not miss him one bit. As for Ricky Riggins, he is why there was an AMBER alert placed on Wood’s truck (he was able to get most of the license plate except for 1 letter); it is sad that Owens couldn’t be saved. The other controversy, however (which is not addressed by this piece) is going to be:… Read more »
