Lily Burk - Victim of Trust

LA Times: Transient is charged with murder in Lily Burk's death

A horrible story, but not because of the circumstances.

LA Times: Slain girl had been 'looking forward to her life'

A horrible story, but not because of the victim.

LA Times: Suspect in Lily Burk's slaying has history of violent crimes, drug problems, police say

A horrible story, but not because of the failure of the justice system.

What makes this story particularly horrible is the fact that Lily and her mother had spent time volunteering for the homeless, and working to help homeless causes.

Investigators think it is likely this was the reason she may have given the piece of trash below the benefit of the doubt, and may have voluntarily offered to try to get him money. Before he murdered her to feed his drug habit.

Lily Burk, murdered for daring to trust in the world we live in.

I have more thoughts on this topic, but this post is not the place for it. Click here for Who is to blame for Lily Burk's death?

I'm sorry for the family, to lose a daughter so young, and trusting.

ANd no mercy for the perp. Since I don't "feel like" I want to spend my tax dollars on keeping him in jail for life, then give him the death sentence. No rehab.

$2 for a bullet, not $50,000 per year for jail upkeep.
