WE LIVE IN NEW MEXICO...ON 04/15/07 MY GRANDDAUGHTER, TAEGEN ELISE MCKINNEY WAS KILLED BY THE BOYFRIEND OF HER BABYSITTER. HER INJURIES WERE EXTENSIVE, HEAD AND BODY, DEFINATLY NO ACCIDENT. HER KILLER STILL WALKS THE STREETS ON A 5000.00 BAIL, AWAITING HIS COURT HEARINGS. HE WAS OUT THE SAME DAY HE WAS ARRESTED, WE BURIED HER AS HE WALKED. MY GRANDDAUGHTER WAS ONLY 17 MONTHS OLD, SHE HAD JUST LEARNED TO WALK THE WEEK BEFORE SHE WAS KILLED. ONLY KNEE HIGH AND LESS THEN 20 POUNDS SHE DIED A HORRIBLE, USELESS, SENSELESS DEATH. IN ADDITION MY 4 YEAR OLD GRANDSON WAS ALSO PRESENT, LUCKILY PHYSICALLY UNHARMED. IN OUR STATE THE MAX SENTENCE HE CAN GET IS 1ST DEGREE CHILD ABUSE RESULTING IN DEATH, WHICH HOLDS A THIRTY YEAR SENTENCE. THE BOY IS EIGHTEEN. TO ME IF YOU CAN KILL A DEFENSELESS CHILD YOU CAN KILL ANYONE. ON THE OTHER HAND IF YOU KILL AN ARMED GROWN POLICE OFFICER YOU CAN GET THE DEATH PENALTY...WE ALL DESERVE PROTECTION, BUT WHY CANT THE KILLER OF THIS DEFENSELESS BABY GET THE SAME SENTENCE AS ONE WHO KILLS THE ARMED POLICE OFFICER OUR CHILDREN ARE DEFENSELESS AGAINST THESE RAGED KILLERS, SOMEONE HAS GOT TO STOP THESE PEOPLE, WE CANT JUST SLAP THERE HANDS AND LET THEM GO FREE. PLEASE HELP US TRY AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE. ARM OUR BABIES WITH SOME KIND OF PROTECTION, IN THE JUSTICE SYSTEM. WE WANT TO PASS TAEGENS LAW...GOVERNORS LINK INCLUDED,TO GIVE CHILD ABUSERS, WHO KILL THEIR DEFENSELESS VICTIMS A HARSHER SENTENCE, NOT LET THEM OUT TO KILL AGAIN. THANK YOU PLEASE FORWARD TO ALL YOU KNOW. GOD BLESS YOU AND TAEGEN TOO. WE LOVE YOU PRINCESS.

I pray for your peace!
I'm sorry to join in so late, and hope it's not too late to get some justice for this beautiful little baby that didn't deserve to have this happen to her. Hope this Monster gets everything that coming to him, both through the Judicial System and, in life. My thoughts and prayers are with Taegen's family.
He doesn't deserve an appeal. This precious baby doesn't have an opportunity to "appeal" for her life. It's time to take a stand and let anyone who preys on and hurts children that it's not okay and let justice be served!!! He lost his rights and voice when he took away hers. We are now her voice! Don't allow him to keep trying to take our voice away!
