Um, what kind of revenge is that?

Turns out, according to the BBC News website, that this prick in PA killed the Amish girls because he was scared he would sexually abuse children, which he previously did 20 years ago.

This was the incident that has haunted him all this time. So it wasn't anything done unto him after all. He was the bad guy then, and he's the bad guy now.

It's great that this guy is no longer a part of this world. It's just a shame he was ever born into it, and that he had to wreak havoc in the lives of so many people, whose only crime was to live a mile away from him.

The news is conflicting at the moment. They are now saying that he lost a child in childbirth 9 years ago. Who knows, as you say there is no fucking excuse to justify his actions.

Suze: Yeah, I saw that too. So maybe that was the straw that broke the camel's back, but he also took two packs of lube with him to the school...

My god how horrible. Strange that the relatives interviewed don't even remember the sexual harrassment 20 years ago. Perhaps the man was psychotic and just hallucinated the events.

ya know, I don't know what the guy's punishment for the molestations was, but apparently it was pretty much a slap on the wrist only, if that much, if he was on the loose to keep on with what he does. This crime and blood is on the hands of the courts who refuse to deal with these crazy assholes. 'Scuze my cussin' but that's too good a word for such scum. When will society realize that we gotta either kill these perverts right away or at least keep them locked up forever!

i've been somewhat (or a lot) out of the loop for the past few days and only heard of this story today... it breaks my heart...

this world gets uglier and uglier every day... people who hurt children... especially sexually... are the lowest form of life imaginable... it's something i just can't comprehend (and, quite frankly, don't want to)

have you heard of some tv show where they bait and catch guys like this? my friend was telling me about it tonight... i'll have to look into it and let you know...

If he really wanted to make amends, he could have done so to the original victim or her family. He could have gone for therapy. Talked to a priest or a rabbi or even The Samaritans (or US equivelent). His actions are unjustified. He has hurt not only the girls, but the witnesses, the girls' families AND his own, which is a much higher toll of victims than the original one.

He'll have to deal with this really serious karma in his next life.

nice to see the sun has an understated headline this morning (wednesday)


now i am in no way wanting to defend this guy, but if what i read is true (no, not in the chavtastic scum) he "sexually assulted" two young female relatives when he was 12, and has had feelings of guilt for the last twenty years. ok, so he rang his wife before he did what he eventually did, and "confessed" that he was wanting to re-enact it, but i for one don't understand how 20 years of carrying this guilt about made him a peado. he. was. 12! now don't think i am saying that made it ok, cos i truly am not. it is just think it is a cheap shot to call him that without knowing his mental state when he went into the schoolhouse.
to me, if he truly was a peado, then surely he would have been commiting sex crimes for many years, not agonising over it all this time?
don't know. just my initial thought when reading the headline.

and on a not so distantly related topic, checkout auntie jac's post from the other day at

MJ: If only...

APP: I know. It's like, why not just go out quietly on your own if that's what you really want?

Diana: No need for apologies for cussin' on this site! You're roght on the button there, too.

Martha: The world does seem to be getting more and more messed up, and I am the only one who no longer buys the "it's always been like this, but these days more crimes are reported" bullshit? Not heard of that show. Sounds ... illegal?

Tanya: He was all out for himself. "Ooh I've got to kill kids so I won't fiddle with them." What kind of logic is that.

Cappy: Thanks for that link. Interesting. And yes, it should be compulsory. I know what you're saying about the ago thing and how long he'd kept a normal head on, but clearly he has a burning desire somewhere in that fucked-up head of his, and it finally popped up. The Sun's ridiculous headline aside, he was clearly still harbouring paedo feelings, and the world is better off without him. IMHO, like.

i concur. reading today(wednesday)s paper, it is apparent he had intent and had planned in advance that he was going to try to sexually attack some one. (remember i am always 1 day behind with the news through the week!)

Yes, Cappy, I forgot that you get your news late. Still, the good thing is that whenever you find info here that is current-events stuff, you can bet your bottom dollar that it came from a reliable news source. (Even if sometimes I put my own spin on it.)
