A Rope works for Me!

10 May

I’ve just been reading about the Cleveland kidnappings. For those of you that don’t know the story, a man called Ariel Castro kidnapped 3 young girls and held them captive for 10 years. They were repeatedly raped, fell pregnant and lost their children due to the beatings he gave them. One child survived and is now 6 years old.

The headlines are saying he might get the death penalty…….are you kidding me!

This monster is clearly guilty, that part should not even be under discussion. But here’s the rub. Despite the victims testimony, despite the chains and ropes found in the house and despite the paternity test showing him to be the young child’s father this man is going to be given an opportunity to defend himself in a trial – Why?

Oh yes you human rights fanatics slathering at my words –  CALM THE HELL DOWN!

I get that if guilt is not obvious a trial is necessary, but this is not the case here. He will plead whatever hogwash his trial attorney advises, and then he’ll appeal his sentence, and then he’ll sit as a protected cherub of the state for a decade and then maybe, just maybe he’ll get a lethal injection and die gently while the rabid do-gooders protest outside the jail, re-enforcing his belief that he’s done no wrong!

All these hoops we jump through to prove we’re civilised and the peodophiles are killing, beating and raping our children with not the slightest fear of true punishment. They even have human rights attorneys to defend their rights when they are released back into the community. Have we all gone mad?

There will always be monsters walking the earth – this sadly we cannot change, but by removing harsh penalties for them ensures that more and more will rise up.

I recently had a semi-argument with a woman I know well, about the death penalty. Being a fully fledged do-gooder she was shocked and appalled at my belief that it’s necessary. Her tone was mocking and superior as she rolled off non-com stats that proved the death penalty was not a deterrant but rather just proof of our savagery.

A week later she was raped and robbed and her life forever devastated. If these animals ever get caught, they may get 4 or 5 years and then be released, and if the stats are to be believed, they will immediately do the same thing all over again!

We truly have created a monstrous playground for paedophiles and rapists. Our children are hunted down and brutalised, but that’s ok, as long as we can pat ourselves on the back for creating a civilised society.

As for me I’m clearly a savage. A rope is all the civility I need…….

a gun would be fine too………………..

    Yes but the death penalty will ultimately kill innocent people which is why we do not have it in UK. We have terrorists here using the European Human Rights Acts to stay when we think they should be deported. Which pisses me off. The French put all they thought to be Mislim terrorists in a ship off Marseilles and sent them home. Did the European Union get them. No! But we live in …. Dunno.but as a journalist of 32 years I can tell you I have seen mistakes made and that is the problem. X

      Agreed, but what I don’t agree with is the absolute YES or NO of the death penalty. It allows no provision for cases of obvious guilt i.e the crime is caught clearly on video or in this case where there’s a mountain of provable evidence.
