After I learned that the body of Jessie Davis had been found (and that it was the father of her child who led police to the body), I had no words.
I thought that time would pass and I could finally articulate how devastating I felt that this news was.Â I’m still sitting here, reading everything I can google about it, and feeling like there is not justice enough for Jessie, her suriving son, or her unborn baby.
And yes, all of the conservatives want to say that she was seeing a still-married man who had a troubled past that almost resulted in his losing his badge.Â All of them want to say that it sounds like a dangerous home to begin with, wrought with stress and deception.
I don’t think any of those facts are relevant.Â At all.
All that I think matters is that a man robbed a very young boy of his mother, and robbed an unborn baby of their chance to live.Â Jesus, she was due in just TWO WEEKS.Â This man forever ruined several families.Â This man brought thousands of people together to search in the hopes that she not in harm’s way.Â This man deserves a punishment that I cannot even fathom.
Sometimes, there is so much crazy in the world that I second-guess my choice to bring another child into it.Â But the fact that I have a choice, unlike Jessie, hardens my resolve.
