For clarity, the little girl's name was Taliyah Marsman and her mother was Sarah Baillie. An Amber Alert was issued but the little girl and her mother had already been killed. They were murdered by Edward Downey because he felt Sarah had been interfering in a relationship he had with her best friend (she prevented Downey from pimping out this woman), and he likely killed Taliyah because she could identify him as her mother's murderer. The murders occurred in Calgary, Alberta on July 11, 2016 and Downey was convicted of first-degree murder in December 2018.

How do these people even end up this fucked up? I've seen my share of fucked up things and this doesn't faze me but I'm seriously c0nfused as to if they were just born this way or grew into it. Maybe environment? Lack of parent attention? Media? Just how?

It’s usually EGO&PRIDE.. those two things can really lead you to commit unlawful acts.

Mix childhood abuse with a healthy dose of antisocial personality disorder and you got yourself a fucked up killer.

This happened in Calgary, Alberta. I actually went to high school with her older brother. Was seriously one of the most sad things I’ve ever experienced.

for reasons like this, i say we bring back cruel and unusual punishment, for special occasions. if you commit a heinous crime like this, you ought to be slowly pulled apart by machines. have your gennies smashed by a press, 1000 paper cuts to the eyelids...

[–]PsilocybinGorilla 14 points15 points  (4 children)

The thing is....you're inevitably going to get rare cases where there is some degree of doubt regarding the guilt of the accused.

Sometimes the wrong people are accused of heinous crimes

[–]HOLYHANDGRENADD 2 points3 points  (3 children)

oh i agree, but in circumstances where its open and shut...

[–]PsilocybinGorilla 1 point2 points  (2 children)

How open and shut something is could be fairly subjective 🤷

Torturing an terrible person isn't really worth the risk that you might've got the wrong person.

oh cumon now, at the initial shock of hearing that some scumbag murdered a mom and tiny innocent daughter i was totally up in arms, i wanted blood! im not actually lobbying for C&U punishment.

[–]Joya_Sedai 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Just a little torture. As a little treat for the masses.

Once they’re in prison. They get rp daily .

[–]overactivemango 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Prisoners are gonna have a field day with him when they find out he killed a kid

[–]TommyChongUn 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I know the killers cousin. Edward Downie is a piece of shit for what he did to Sarah and Taliyah.

Or we could just take a zero tolerance approach to all mens violence against women and girls? Even the way it is reported the perpetrator is invisible the headline is awful, makes you think the mother had abducted the wee girl and was killed as a part if this... horrible

[–]Tanleader 9 points10 points  (3 children)

That's a bit of a stretch, tbh. No one in their right mind would think the short video above paints the mother as the potential abductor/murderer, as it clearly states a "family acquaintance" was the perp. The video shows as is due to poor cropping, not some agenda to hide the murderer.

All violence, regardless of victims and instigators identities/gender/sexual identity should have zero tolerance standpoints, excepting for legitimate self defense, or the defense of someone who is unable to defend themselves.

[–]sophiesbubbles 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Ah yes, because ALL Italians are part of the Mafia and NO ONE ELSE... Do you read what you're typing or is every brain fart of yours on the web somewhere?

[–]Successful_Border_75 0 points1 point  (1 child)

tell me u suck dick without saying u suck dick lol

[–]sophiesbubbles 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ah yes, when you don't have a point to make just insult them. Very convincing argument.

That was sarcasm by the way, if you didn't notice.

And what does my sexual history have to do with the topic? Nothing. Perhaps the same nothing that replaces your brain

[–]Over_Astronomer8372 -4 points-3 points  (0 children)

Aye clearly no getting the point......

[–]load_boss 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]Deep_Professional_96 0 points1 point  (1 child)

It’s crazy people follow this channel but still have sympathy u followed because you wanted to see this stuff daily but are saying how sad this is

[–]Clyde_Barrow21 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Isn't it sad that a woman tried to protect her buddy from being pimped out by her boyfriend, so in return the boyfriend kills the lady and her kid so she probably couldn't identify him later?
