    Ok, I need to understand something

    I understand I wasn't living here when Joel Steinberg got arrested for killing his daughter. But I'm not so sure I understand why this is such an issue when there have been murders of this sort and even 10 times worse that have happened in NY?

    I doh mean to sound cold but I know for a fact that there have been worse cases of child abuse/murder. It was a gruesome thing he did and he is a monster hands down. But why all the publicity?

    I suppose it's because he didn't serve his full sentence, and the people in the community where he's going to live don't want him there.

    U know, I try not to listen much to the news, so I don't even know about this case, what are the details of this crime? does anyone have a link?

    He served 2/3 of his sentence w/good behavior so he was eligble for early release

    This case is no different from other high profile cases. If you have money you will reap benefits. In my opinion.....big deal. live and let live.
