    Cringing jurors watch Duncan torture boy on tape

    BOISE, Idaho (AP) -- Jurors cringed, cried and some desperately looked away as they were shown a series of deeply disturbing and graphic videos taken by a convicted child killer as he tortured, sexually abused and nearly killed a 9-year-old boy. Joseph Edward Duncan III, acting as his own attorney, had argued against playing the videos, saying it would turn jurors "into my victims" as they decide whether he should be executed.

    Duncan kidnapped the boy, Dylan Groene, and his sister, Shasta, in May 2005 after murdering their older brother, their mother and her fiance in the Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, area. The two young children were taken deep into the Lolo National Forest, where they endured weeks of horrendous abuse at Duncan's hands.

    Duncan ultimately shot the boy point-blank in the head while his sister, then 8, watched. He was arrested after returning to Coeur d'Alene, where a waitress recognized Shasta as the two ate at a Denny's restaurant. The videos and photos taken at the cabin show Duncan forcing the boy to perform a sex act, whipping him with a belt and hanging him with a wire noose until the boy passed out.

    "The devil is here, boy, the devil himself. The demon couldn't do what the devil sent him to do so the devil came himself," Duncan yells in one video. "The devil likes to watch children suffer and cry." Duncan covered his face as parts of the video were shown, and jurors frequently shot him looks. Two of Duncan's standby attorneys also avoided looking at the screen.


    Has there ever been a better candidate for the death penalty?

    I'm still against the death penalty, but I don't mourn for these guys when they do get it. I just don't ever want to be on a jury where that is on the line.

    Sorry, but as a father, I could push that needle and sleep like a baby. The video should make this an slam dunk.

    Push the needle my eye.

    The guy should be fed to wild animals. 3 inches at a time.

    No depth of hell is too deep for this filth.

    A thousand complete and proud-of-it assholes will come out of the woodwork to help this less than human creature with his court appeals after he’s convicted. Many pony-tailed lawyers will consume hundreds of hours of court clerk's time and annoy the governor’s office to save this "poor, unfortunate man" from his final fate. If I were, say the uncle of these children, I would quit my work - tell my family I’d be away from home for about a year and follow the same path as Steve McQueen’s character, as Nevada Smith in the ‘Carpetbaggers.’

    These are the two angels that evil vile monster destroyed.



    how anyone against the death penalty can take in the facts of this terrible evil crime and still feel this bastard deserves to live is beyond me.....
    One does not greet death when he knocks at your door.

    Nay you repeatedly punch him in the throat as he slowly drags you away.

    I couldnt have posted a better post.

    Since becoming a father I have been changed in how I react to stories like this.

    I would have fun with a potato peal before pushing the needle.....

    They should just send him to fed prison and let him experience some of what he did to those kids... then the inmates can take care of him like they took care of jeffery dahmer.
