24-year-old Zachary Tricoche, is being held on $1,000,000 bond in New Jersey, in connection with the beating death of his girlfriend’s 2-year-old stepson Jamil “JB” Baskerviller Jr. Tricoche, a man convicted of “drug trafficking” and “hindering apprehension” was beating his girlfriend for bringing home the wrong groceries, which prompted the brave toddler to try to protect his mom from further abuse. Tricoche cruelly punched the little boy in his chest with such force, he hit the wall and the back of his head when he stumbled backward.

Tricoche then yelled at the defenseless toddler to “get up and fight like a man.” The brave toddler got up and Tricoche viciously punched the child again and kept doing so until he died from his injuries. Tricoche’s forceful punches crushed little Jamil’s liver and he internally bled to death.
This story makes me so upset. Tricoche should be sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole, as it is appropriate in this case due to the seriousness of the crime and will act as a strong deterrent to other child abusers. Tricoche poses a great danger to society to have done such a thing to an innocent child and should remain behind bars. Prison will not be easy for him, as it is no cakewalk for people who are incarcerated for committing crimes against children.
