Georgia Man Finally Charged with Daughters Death

Local news reports
A former soldier is now facing charges in the accidental shooting death of his young daughter. Joshua Henry was indicted by a Chatham County grand jury on three counts—contributing to the deprivation of a minor resulting in death, cruelty to a child second degree, and reckless conduct.
Cheyanne Henry was killed July 5th after investigators say she found a firearm in their Pooler home. The girl was just weeks shy of her third birthday at the time. All three of the counts against Henry allege that Henry that he failed to supervise the child, leaving her in the presence of and with access to a loaded and unsecured firearm, resulting in her death.
I realize this is Georgia, one of those backwards states, but what could have possible taken 4 months to charge this dangerous and unfit lawful gun owner.  He should have been disarmed and locked up the evening of July 5th.

What's your opinion?  Please leave a comment.


  1. Inexcusable. His gun rights should have been removed immediately, and locked up. There is no excuse.

  2. This is how our legal system works. You're an idiot if you can't see how this protects the innocent. Do you really want a system in which the police haul off anyone suspected of a crime to jail? Do you really want a system in which we rush to judgement before an investigation? Mikeb, are you E.N.?

    By the way, your racism is showning in your comment about Georgia.

    1. Due process my ass. It doesn't take four months to charge someone for something they're obviously guilty of. That's done on the scene by the responding officer, unless it's a gun offense in Georgia, then they look for ways to write it off as just an accident.

    2. Obviously guilty? Well, hell, why don't we just take 'em out back and hang 'em? Of course, there's this pesky little fact about American law. A person is innocent until proven guilty. Unless the officer arrives while the crime is being committed, there has to be an investigation before an arrest can be made. That's how things are supposed to work. Your vindictiveness and rush to judgement is far more dangerous than an untended gun.
