Incheon District Court's presiding judge Lee Un Hak recited a heart-wrenching letter he personally wrote for the middle school girl who was beaten to death by her own parents. 


The judge began, "I read this letter fully feeling the pain and grief you felt and knowing that you'll never fulfill your dreams to be an elementary school teacher. Now you have become one of the stars in the sky. We are sorry that we couldn't ward off your pain and grief...We hope that in heaven you'll meet your mother you've missed so much and that you will be happy.

Lee concluded, "Please light the way so that there will be no more children in this country who will be suffer from abuse." 


The courts had sentenced the girl's father to 20 years and her stepmother to 15 years in prison, respectively. Further, they sentenced the couple to the compulsory completion of 200 hours on a program focused on child abuse prevention.

    People who are talking about removing trash from the society needs to understand that to hold a man's life in your hand is no small responsibility. What speaks of the ethics of the person who want's another person dead? The person who gives this judgement will also suffer thinking that he/she sent a man to his death. "Human" is the greatest resource and we need to take all steps to protect and resurrect the best in it. With great power comes great responsibility.

    But you do realize the ethical dilemma right? It's been a serious topic among policy makers all over the world.

    If you murder, you are a disease to the society you are in and need to be removed permanently. I have NO problem making that judgment.

    Nope, they are still human, but they do not deserve the right to be in society, therefore they are removed and forced to work in labor camps or else they get executed

    I like the idea of labor camps. It seems fit to make them work as a punishment and it also benefits the society.

    Well, I don't think the girl wants to be recognised because of those "parents".

    If she did nothing wrong then I think she'll be ok. But that could be very true too.

    People who would kill their own child like this do not only NOT deserve to live, they are a cancer that needs to be cut from society. No "reflection", no rehabilitation, extermination.

    The sentence was way too light. And the judge knows that, he feels it. He just can't do anything about it because of the law.

    Korean laws for killing is 7 years, definitely too light for a life. I hope they change their laws so they get the proper justice. Especially for this little girl who could never even fulfill her dream of being an elementary school teacher
