Death penalty for the bastard. If not, then lock him up and throw away the key. That's just sickening what he did. Why would this guy burn his baby daughter on a microwave? I mean, what the hell is wrong with people these days?

Quoting AirCop (Reply 3): According to police reports, Mauldin told investigators God ordered him to go to Galveston.
He's changed his story now. On the noon news he is now saying he was "stressed" and that's why he did it. Wonder how he'll handle the "stress" of prison? The baby has had several skin grafts already and doctors aren't sure how much internal injury there has been since a microwave cooks from the inside out. Sadly, there is still a chance the baby may not survive.

Sick, sick, sick, sick. I agree with Kai on this count, why can't people like this be castrated? That poor kid. I don't have any kids, but I've grown up with younger siblings, cousins, and the like. How can a parent do this to their child? Sometimes I wonder what this world is coming to. "Got frustrated" my ass. I say lock him up for life.

Quoting KaiGywer (Thread starter): The charge carries a possible prison term of five to 99 years, as well as a fine of up to $10,000.
That's it? It's tempting to consider that punishment for criminals like this should always be more creative than it was for the victims, but a simple, public retribution should be effected, as in, this guy should suffer capital punishment, and the public should be allowed to view it - deterrence for any other wackos (and it's called deterrence for a reason, otherwise if few to none were deterred, we wouldn't use the term).

This has been the top story on the local news for the past few days and has stirred up a lot of emotions. Shock is an overused word in our society, but this story has definitely shocked the local community. If this guy is indeed insane, which he may be, then he obviously can’t be executed and should instead be committed for a very long time. If he is competent to stand trial then execution would be a light punishment in my opinion, I would prefer he spend the rest of his days in a Texas correctional facility.
