A new petition is calling for the public hanging death of Benjamin Taylor, the man who has been charged with the rape & murder of his GF’s daughter, 10 months. The outraged members of the public who started the movement say that ‘prison is too good’ for such a monster, and they’re calling for him to be publicly ridiculed! But could the petition actually reach the White House?
Benjamin Taylor, 32, from West Virginia is facing life in prison on charges of murder and sexual assault of 10-month-old Emmaleigh Barringer, his girlfriend’s daughter. And the public is completely infuriated by what he’s allegedly done! So much so that a petition has been created calling for Benjamin to be publicly hanged instead of simply going to prison for life.
The petition is being sent to the White House, and if it gathers 100k signatures in 30 days, it will warrant an official response from the Obama Administration! And while West Virginia abolished the death penalty over 50 years ago, thousands of Americans are calling on the government to help make an exception for Benjamin. “Prison is too good for child rapists and their ilk,” the petition on We The People states.

Emmaleigh’s mom, Amanda Leigh Adkins, who has three older children, reportedly woke up about 5 a.m. on Oct. 3 and found her baby girl naked and bleeding on her basement floor. She immediately called 911, but when paramedics arrived, the infant was not breathing. They were however able to regain Emmaleigh’s pulse, but she needed to be placed on a ventilator and was soon pronounced brain dead. Her family made the difficult decision to take her off life support on Oct. 5.
Emmaleigh suffered massive head trauma and had lost a large amount of blood from the brutal sexual assault. Responding police even characterized her attack as “the worst sexual assault they had ever seen,” according to Fox 43. She also showed signs of having been shaken and struck in the face.
The petition already has over 32,000 signatures. “When it’s an open and shut case such as this, let us hang these creatures publicly,” wrote J.R., who started the petition on Oct. 5. “Let us make examples of them, and allow the American people to attend these hangings so that the accused may be ridiculed, as they should be.”
