I swear, each time I see an accompanying photo of some recently discovered criminal, I can't help but wonder how on earth someone DIDN'T know there
was something wrong. It would be laughable if it weren't so awful, but they nearly always have this fixed maniacal look to them. All the while, the
neighbors say "But he seemed like such a nice man!". Come on, people, open your eyes. I certainly hope that anyone looking at the photograph in the
linked article would see right away that the man looks insane. God knows I wouldn't want to go near him.
Ah well, let's see what the justice system dishes out this time. The article mentions that "in 1967 he was sentenced to 18 months in prison for
brutally raping a 24-year-old woman at knifepoint in her home." Whenever I hear about the sentences given to sexual offenders, I can't help but
think that those who decided upon the sentence must have never had intimate knowledge of the aftereffects of sexual offenses. If they had, they would
surely know that a few months or years is not nearly enough penance for what is done to a victim. Sexual offenses destroy victims in a way that you
cannot really understand unless you have been violated yourself or loved someone who has. The sort of sentences that we give to sexual offenders
before allowing them to re-enter society (and create yet more victims) are an embarrassment to civilization. These bastards ought to be strung up like
the beasts they are; I have no sympathy for them, none whatsoever. This sort of behavior ought to get you a one-way ticket out of the gene pool, not a
short reprieve in prison before you're let out again to continue the hunt.
Edit to add: Gotta love the “I had a mean streak" statement. Sir, I think raping a woman at knifepoint and imprisoning your daughter in a cellar
(where you consistently rape her and force her to bear seven of your offspring, three of whom have spent their lives in that cellar) is the result of
a bit more than a "mean streak".
