If you weren't referring to murder here, what were you talking about?
I was also treated very badly by my step-dad - more than a few hospital visits because of him. Once he broke my cheek bone and I missed school for a
month to avoid questioning. He was sick and twisted in his punishments too, not in a sexual way but in a physically abusive and
emotionally/psychologically humiliating way. I am glad to say that he has seen the errors in his ways as he grew older and wiser. I hated him with my
entire being when I was young, and now I'm wise enough to realize that he was young and didn't know how to handle himself in stressful situations. I'm
glad he wasn't "put to sleep" because not only would he never have had the chance to change that part of himself, but I wouldn't have the relationship
with him I do today.
I think the point we're trying to make is that murder is never the answer. I agree with you 100% that 18 months is a very light sentence, and I hope
it's at least followed by therapy and active parole/probation where the individual is checked on often. They should also not be allowed to be around
children unsupervised until a therapist in conjunction with a court deems them fit to do so. As the other poster you labeled as a 'troll' for having a
very valid opinion was stating, abuse happens in cycles. The abused continue to abuse, and so on, until the chain is broken. There are more ways to
break the chain than killing the abuser, or not allowing them to have children.
I have a son and a daughter, neither of which will ever see the kind of punishment I had as a child. In my experience my poor childhood is a huge
factor in why I treat my children so much better than I was treated. So sometimes the cycle stops without any serious intervention or action from any
It's horrible what these people have done, but "putting them to sleep" would make us just as horrible. I hope you see that.
