yeah, she's crazy

I'll apologize beforehand to anyone with delicate sensibilities for the heartless rant I am about to write. I'll start by saying, yeah, she's crazy. ANYBODY who does what she did HAS to be crazy as a shithouse rat, nutty as a fruitcake, completely FUBAR.

But I don't care how looney-tunes she is. I don't want her walking around free in MY world. I want her taken OUT, so that she never has the chance to nut-up and kill again.

When I lived on the mini-farm, I once discovered a rabid racoon in my back yard. I think the sumbitch was rooting around in search of garbage to eat, but I didn't care about what motivated the critter. I saw the red eyes, the slobbering mouth and the complete lack of fear it showed when it saw ME, and I didn't run back inside to call an animal psychologist to handle the situation.

I ran back inside and fetched a shotgun.

I gave that poor animal a dose of intensive therapy that solved all of its problems once and for all. Thanks to my counceling, it wasn't crazy anymore. It wasn't a menace to me, my family, other animals or anybody else in my neighborhood.

It was DEAD.

That racoon couldn't help being rabid. Being diseased wasn't its fault. It probably couldn't tell right from wrong. But explaining the REASON that it was a menace didn't make it any less of a menace. The damned thing was dangerous and that's all I needed to know.

Crazy people are no different from rabid racoons. They are a menace and they can't be allowed to run around loose. I don't care WHY they are crazy and I don't give a shit about "curing" them. I simply want them gone forever before they hurt or kill somebody else.

Locking them up sounds like a good idea, but it doesn't suit me. It doesn't guarantee that they won't be free again some day, after some brilliant head-shrinker pronounces them normal again. If you think it can't happen, just keep an eye on John Hinckley. That prick is well on his way to becoming a free man.

Hinckley has lived at St. Elizabeths since he was acquitted of the shootings in 1982 by reason of insanity. Since then, doctors say he has made substantial progress, and his attorneys told the court he has proven that he poses no danger to himself or others.

It might be fitting to require Hinckley to go live with his lawyer and see how certain the shyster remains about that "no danger to himself and others" shit when HE has to bet HIS life on it. But that ain't gonna happen, even if it would be poetic justice. Hinckley will be a free man eventually. Just wait and see.

You see, Hinckley was insane once, but he's not insane now. And he won't ever be a bad boy again. Honest. His lawyer is willing to bet YOUR life on it.

Isn't that insane?


So, I should have been shot years ago, when I almost lost control because I was insane?

Off with her head....That will take care of the mental problem...

I'm always amused how the bleeding hearts want to cure people, etc. It's fine with them as long as they aren't personally involved or take any of the risks.

I like the idea of Hinckley living with his lawyer.

S'alright. Once Hinckley starts making contact with someone who's "really" important, (Jodie Foster, the Hollywood Celebrity) he'll be in REAL trouble. It's one thing to shoot a despised republican, but another thing altogether to stalk an ACTRESS! the HORROR!!

hey, while you're not too busy, whyncha transcribe some of those stories from the Herald? I miss those.

Livey, the answer to your question just may be in Rob's 02.04.06 "Offensive" post. Then again, it may not be. That's one of the things that makes his blog so interesting. If you read the post again, don't think too much about it. It'll drive you crazy.

Livey--- if you "lost control" and killed somebody, then YES!

Rob--- I was a hair away from it years ago. I've been cured of that part of my insanity. But if I had lost control, you know me well enough to know it would have been true insanity. Not that this woman shouldn't pay for her crimes, but I understand the insanity. I would have never hurt a child, even if I had lost control, but there would have been a helluva lot less assholes in the world, I can tell you that much.
And don't worry Tessa, I'm not "thinking too much" about it. I just happen to understand insanity.

1. Congrats on another day of sobriety, but the current events of the day would tend to make one run for the bottle. You are a man of great conviction and fortitude.

2. She was listening to a hymn. Here we go, another "got-damn" Bible thumper. Would the spin have been different if they found she was a card carrying member of the Church of Satan.

Well, the only other option besides shooting her is to have the state immediately remove any and all breeding organs from her body (there's always a chance a prison guard or "therapist" could knock her up again) and locking her up for life. Hmmm... as a taxpayer, I'd have to go with option "a" - I'd rather pay the ten minutes of salary for the person who shoots her, the cost of the bullet, and what the hell, I'd even throw in the funeral. Hell of a lot cheaper than keeping her ass in a state run institution until she's 90. Besides, with all the "hymn humming" going on, seems she's anxious to meet her "maker" anyway, so, you're basically just going to facilitate her wishes by shooting her.

Yeah. I completely agree with you on this Rob. Some people you just can't fix and some you just need to shoot and be done with them.
