This worldwide petition is for baby Brianna Lopez, who knew nothing but agony in her 5 short MONTHS of life. She was murdered 9 years ago this month. Little Brianna was bitten (leaving purple toothmarked scars and bruises all over her body), beaten, swung by her legs and thrown across the room by her mother, bitten, raped repeatedly and manually penetrated by both her father and uncle, slammed against the ceiling and let fall to the floor repeatedly, and left on the floor to suffer. Her ribs had been broken for weeks previous to her death and she had blood on her brain and bleeding from her eyes for weeks. Another uncle and her grandmother were fully aware of her abuse and did NOTHING to stop this (and they served only 30 DAYS in jail for this). NEITHER OF HER MURDERERS (her father and uncle) EVEN GOT LIFE SENTENCES.

No one in Brianna's family would even come forward to claim her little body after the autopsy, so she was buried by the community of Las Cruces, New Mexico.

I also want to respectfully warn you that there is a large graphic image of Brianna's abuse (showing bruising on her face and head) attached with the petition, and it is of course very shocking and upsetting, but I know it's posted there to show the world what kind of monsters Stephanie Lopez and her family are to torture and destroy this precious baby. Stephanie Lopez will be eligible for parole-- make sure she stays behind bars (though I think she --and all of them- deserve MUCH WORSE punishment than this)! Please sign for Baby Brianna, and for all abused and murdered children.

**Though the petition has a specific signature number target, I read a post from the petition writer which said it is possible to keep signing once that target is met. The target hasn't been met yet, but when it is, please do still try and sign the petition. **

Please leave a comment below to let me know you've read this and signed for Baby Brianna. PLEASE SHARE! Thank you.

This is so upsetting. To think that the torturers were not recognised BEFORE this tragedy occurred, just kills me! WHY were these people not suspected of such depraved and atrocious behaviour towards an innocent? Why was it not seen in their faces that they were insane? WHY? WHY?

There are no words strong enough about this cruelty and loss of such an innocent life. What the hell did she do to deserve to be born to these moronic people? WHY?

Noted I could not put this on my Fbook site as my grandchildren see it and I could not bear to have them know that some parents could be so viciously cruel to an innocent child.

It's sickening and unbearable to even think how this beautiful baby suffered and to know she's lying in a paupers grave. I pray her mother's rotten soul burns in hell. RIP Brianna,while asleep with angels. So sadly signed, thanks An.

I feel exactly as you all do. I'm filled with rage, disbelief, a thousand questions with no answers, and heartbreak. I sincerely thank you all again for doing this for precious Brianna's memory and to try and get some small justice for her and all abused and murdered innocents.

Thank you!!

Apparently, the New Mexico Parole Board wrote back to the petition author recently and said that Stephanie Lopez can get out of prison after serving only 50% of her 27 year sentence. Apparently, torturing, biting, beating, and throwing a baby and standing by while she is raped and murdered is not considered a "serious violent offense" in New Mexico. Because of this, she only has to serve 50% of her short 27 year sentence (her reward for "good behavior" in prison!!). I can't believe it. But there is still a need to show a national and international outcry at these ridiculous laws and the injustice. No one who tortures and participates in the murder of a baby should ever have parole. So I still encourage everyone to please sign and share, and help make a difference.

This is the letter from the parole board (August 8, 2011)

Signed today; I had missed this article previously, sorry, An. The mother was the only perpetrator given long term prison sentence when all her family members contributed to her severe repeated abuse & subsequent death; why is that? I do not know the details surrounding this case; but from the information presented here, I don't think any of these adults in baby Brianna's life should be allowed to walk free in society. TY, An , for bringing the critically important child abuse issue back into awareness for Care2 members.
