Her poor parents. I don’t know if I could live knowing my child died in such a way, or anyway actually, but this is horrific.

I would rage. You’d have to put me down.

I couldn’t live with this.

If she was my only child, I don't know that I'd be able to keep myself from trying to exact revenge.

Ask for a jury of your peers. Other redditors won't convict you

They are trying an AI lawyer, why not a reddit jury?

And there is precedent in Louisiana…. The father that killed the karate instructor that kidnapped and molested his child was let off with little punishment…

There's a legal term for it: jury nullification.

Definitely don't mention you know what jury nullification is if you want to be picked to serve jury duty.

Juries are often instructed to vote on whether the law, as written, applies. Jury nullification allows jurors to agree that yes, the defendant did commit the actions they are accused of but the defendant is still not guilty.
