Speaking of the monsters that walk among us…

…another one was taken off the streets yesterday:

A Georgia teenager convicted of fatally shooting a baby in a stroller while trying to rob the child’s mother was sentenced Thursday to life in prison without parole.

De’Marquise Elkins, 18, was sentenced in Georgia’s Glynn County Superior Court less than two weeks after a jury found him guilty of murder in the slaying of 13-month-old Antonio Santiago.

Now, you’ll note I didn’t say Mr. Elkins got his just desserts. Why? Because, well, his just desserts would have been two rounds of .45 to the torso and one to the head. As it is, we’ll have to feed and water that monster for the rest of his days. Better than the all-too-common alternative of catch-and-release, though, to be sure…
