TPN‘s Trifling Person of the Week


Danny Platt

Talk about evil. Danny, 22, didn’t want to pay child support, so used his pea-sized brain to devise a way out: Kill his 2-year-old son. Now little Ja’Shawn Powell (you didn’t, for a moment, think that Danny was married to Ja’Shawn’s mother, did you?) is dead. Danny, whose brain somehow musters enough power to let him speak, told reporters he didn’t kill Ja’Shawn solely to get out of paying child support: “I had a whole bunch of reasons,” he said.

I don’t usually support the death penalty, but the world would be better place if this guy wasn’t in it.

  3. He had a “bunch of reasons” and I am sure they are all green. I read this story and found it so sad. I pray for the mom and hope she will survive this! As for him, I too am against the death penalty and I think a bullet is too good for him! Let him sit and rot in a jail cell for the rest of his miserable life.

  4. Those of you who want him to just sit in jail need to remember, it is we, the taxpaers who have to PAY to feed, clothe, house, provide medical treatment, etc. for him there…just put him out of OUR miseries!

  5. It saddens me to know that a Danny Platt can walk this earth feeling justified in murdering a two-year old because he “…had a whole bunch of reasons!” Keeping Danny’s butt in prison for the rest of his life will be money well spent.

  6. Usually I’m smiling and giggling as I read this blog but my face fell when I read this post. “…a whole bunch of reasons”–sickening! As my mom would say, they need to put him under the jail.
