If you haven’t heard the story of the man who repeatedly raped his 12-year-old daughter, you should go read it. A Montana man raped his daughter. A judge handed down what basically is a 43-day sentence, when all was said and done. The man’s wife saw the rape and not only did nothing about it, but wrote to the judge asking for a light sentence, claiming she wanted his “children [to] have an opportunity to heal the relationship with their father.”
The victim’s grandmother echoed this, calling the man’s behavior “horrible” but stating that the man’s children, “especially his sons, will be devastated if their Dad is no longer part of their lives.”
No one spoke for the victim. No one.
It’s not often that I find myself speechless, but there are no words to describe these monsters.
The monster who raped his own child.
The monster who did nothing to protect her daughter and who wanted her husband released back into society to possibly rape children again, and who used her sons as tools to accomplish that end, and who would expose those boys to the twisted fiend who raped their sister.
The monster who echoed those sentiments and would expose her grandchildren to this bag of rancid shit.
And the monster who handed down this absurd sentence, who failed to protect the children from this repugnant threat, who refused to protect society by allowing him to exist in it, and not in prison, where the criminals would tear his asshole so hard, you could drive a VW bus filled with illegals through it, and who would not attain justice for one traumatized little girl. This monster will be allowed to retire with full benefits.
The judge, in response to nationwide outrage, wrote that this was his attempt “to encourage and provide opportunities for an offender’s self-improvement, rehabilitation and reintegration back into a community.”
Let’s get this straight. There’s no rehabilitation for someone who rapes – RAPES – his 12 year old child!
This is someone you either lock away in a dank dungeon forever, or put down line a rabid animal so that he never walks among people again!
This is not a mistake. This is not illness. This is evil. Pure, unmitigated evil. And it I had my way, this evil would be eradicated from this world, along with the rancid cunts who supported it and did nothing to protect this innocent child!
My friend Patrick Richardson, the managing editor of the Pittsburg Morning Sun, quoted author S.M. Stirling in his column yesterday, “Mercy to the guilty is cruelty to the innocent.”
And he, like the rest of us, is sick and tired of society allowing acts of sheer evil to go unpunished.
Say a kid catches a shoplifting beef. First time around he gets probation. Probably unsupervised or pretty minimal supervision. Now let’s say he doesn’t have the best parents. So at most he catches hell for the fine, but they’ve caught their own share of cases so they don’t do much — not that they would anyway.
He’ll catch a few more minor misdemeanors while a juvenile, each a little more serious than the last, but still, no real teeth to anything.
Then he turns 18 and that juvie record goes away.
But no one has ever told him “no,” he’s never had any real discipline and has the usual attitude of the habitually criminal “You can’t make me do nothin’!”
So as an adult he catches a few more misdemeanors, at most a few days in the county lockup, fines he won’t pay, and probation.
First felony is probably drugs or minor theft, maybe burglary. Presumptive probation cases and he’s been on probation on and off since he was 13, so who cares?
He’ll catch four or five more of those before he finally commits ENOUGH crimes, or one serious enough that he’s going to prison.
By this time he’s probably in his early 30s. Never held a job that didn’t involve a hair net and saying “would you like fries with that?” and never held one of those for more than a few months, maybe a year, before his boss talked to him in a way he didn’t like and he either quit or got fired because “you can’t make me do nothin’!”
By the time he catches a sanction with any real teeth in it, he’s a lost cause. A habitual criminal, no education, dumb as a post, but with a certain animal cunning, good at manipulating people and the system and no more between him and his will than a wolf has.
Make no mistake – this is very relevant to the situation.
If we, as a society, continue to make excuses for criminal acts, and don’t hold those among us accountable for their actions, we are sending a message to the youngest and most impressionable among us that intentional criminal acts – from simple theft, to rape, to murder – will be forgiven with little to no consequences.
If we allow a man who has violated his own child in the most despicable and morally repugnant way, to walk free and go home to play with his boys, and probably rape again, the boys will learn that even an act as odious as the rape of a little child, goes unpunished by society, and is therefore OK.
If we don’t slap them on the hand as kids, and tell them “NO!” in no uncertain terms, and then show them that every act has a consequence – from small to huge – we will have many more monsters walking among us!
The saga of the child-raping, thieving squatters continues. David and Pamela Cooper continue to infest my house without paying rent, as if somehow they’re entitled to my property – and apparently with the judge’s blessing.
This has been a tremendously difficult time – both financially and emotionally. The stress has been unreal. The thieving, lying child rapist and his wife don’t care about any kind of grief they cause others. They’ve stolen my house, and continue to refuse to leave.
As I mentioned before, my friends have been an incredible source of support! I have a network of beautiful, talented, passionate, supportive friends and acquaintances, who have picked up this cause to help me fight this horrid injustice. They’ve restored my hope, and that’s pretty difficult to do, given the fact that I’m paying 80 percent of my takehome pay for housing (my rent, two mortgages, etc.) and have to rely on the kindness of others to ensure I don’t lose my credit rating and my career.
Between my friend Amanda who started this incredible fundraiser to help me with any legal bills, and all the incredibly kind people who have offered not only financial, but also emotional support, and the enormous outpouring of good wishes, and my buddy Dennis, of Dragon Leatherworks, who auctioned off a pair of truly incredible “Sad Puppy” holsters to help me, and the numerous friends who have blogged this issue, the Internet truly restored my faith in humanity.
For those of you who don’t know Oleg Volk, he’s an amazing photographer and artist. Oleg and I have been friends for close to 15 years now. He’s an incredible talent! Oleg decided to help by doing a fundraiser for me, and if you know anything about his work, this is a huge deal! Oleg is offering a poster print of your choice to the highest contributor between now and June 1, inclusive. Just donate to the cause and let him know when you have, and your choice of photo in print form is yours.
Not even kidding!
Check out Oleg’s blog for details. It’s pretty amazing!
Thank you, Oleg, for being an incredible friend. And thank you to all of you again for your help and support!
Than legal acumen? Damn skippy, according to Ruth Bader Ginsburg (a/k/a the Cryptkeeper).
Ginsburg said that no one has “ever raised a question” when nine men were serving on the bench.
Ginsburg added that she felt “lonely” on the bench when she was the only woman on the Supreme Court after Sandra Day O’Connor retired.
“It was the wrong perception for people to see just a little woman and eight larger men,” Ginsburg told the crowd. “But now if you come to the court, we are all over the bench.”
It’s THE SUPREME COURT OF THE UNITED STATES! No one gives a fuck if you’re lonely! You’re there to interpret the Constitution, not to have a Tupperware party or discuss bra size! Your plumbing shouldn’t matter to anyone, but your knowledge of the Constitution should!
But I guess in this post-racial, post-sexual United States, your skills should be secondary. What you’re hiding in your panties and your ethnicity is apparently more important.
America! What the flying hell happened to you???
How’s that “You must vote Republican, because of SCOTUS nominees” meme working for you?
Do you happen to remember who put Roberts on the high court?
Not news: a lawyer is suing someone
Douchebaggery: Lawyer is suing university for violating the “human rights” of Muslims for refusing to sponsor a Muslim Students Association and for not providing a prayer room for Muslims that doesn’t have the cross of Jesus hanging around.
Absolute brain-eating insanity: It’s Catholic University; it already has an Arab American Association; not a single Muslim student has come forward to complain.
Asshattery bound to make you have froth-inducing seizures: According to a CUA student, CAIR thinks this lawsuit is bullshit.
As a CUA student, I feel compelled to again point out that none of our Muslim students are behind this complaint. A spokesman for the Council on American-Islamic Relations just stated that they do not support it.
And apparently the Muslims at the school are perfectly satisfied with their treatment there.
The university, whose Arab student population swelled from 56 in 2007 to 122 this year, sponsors an Arab American Association, founded this fall by Muslim student Wiaam Al Salmi.
“The community here is very respectful of other religions and I feel free to openly practice it,” Salmi told the CUA student newspaper, The Tower.
FAIL beyond all comprehension: The waste of human skin professor filing the suit is not filing on behalf of anyone, and doesn’t even teach at the school.
He’s filed suits against McDonalds, because fatasses are apparently too stupid to know what they’re getting in those restaurants, and are easily swayed by advertising, against the tobacco industry, and he’s also suing CUA, because apparently somehow, the elimination of-coed dorms is a human rights violation of women. Apparently the right to hook up indiscriminately is now considered a “human right.”
In other words, the guy is a complete douchebag who has learned how to use the court system to eliminate freedoms, and he’s out for attention, which he’s ostensibly receiving by the truckload, even though most of it is negative.
Nonetheless, he’s filing the suit and claiming “human rights” violations.
“It shouldn’t be too difficult somewhere on the campus for the university to set aside a small room where Muslims can pray without having to stare up and be looked down upon by a cross of Jesus,” Banzhaf told Fox News.
It’s a private university.
The Muslim students know that means there will be (OH NOEZ!!!) crosses and Jesus symbology.
Nothing is stopping them from worshiping, and none of them appear to be offended by said Jesus symbols, as demonstrated by the fact that not a single Muslim student at CUA has complained, and the attention whore is filing the lawsuit on behalf of no one in particular. He admitted as much (albeit unwillingly – when asked how many students he represented or how many have actually come to him seeking this lawsuit, he claimed attorney/client privilege, even though no one asked him for names, but simply a reply about whether or not any of the Muslim students in question came up to him and hired him) on the air this morning when he did an interview with WMAL.
This is not a Muslim attack on Christianity, folks. This is a lawyer attack on private property rights.
One of these days a sane court will toss John Banzhaf’s monkey ass out and force him to pay all court costs for his asshattery.
We can only hope.
