I can't wait...

... until Warren Jeffs' cellmate gives him the same treatment he's been giving little girls for years.

Don't get me wrong, prison rape is wrong, and two wrongs don't make a right. But I just hate this man and I want him to suffer. And I want his rapist followers to know the extent of his suffering so that the little pansy-ass child rapists crawl back into the hell-based holes they came from.

I've always heard that child molesters are called "short eyes" in prison and don't fare well, as even murderers have an honor code of sorts. If he is put in with the general population, it shouldn't take long for his karma to catch up to him. (So to speak.)

I've been watching this case with extreme anger and revulsion, too. So much evil committed in the name of some convenient God or other.

You have to wonder at so many women brainwashed or drugged into sacrificing their daughters to such men.

heart in sf, I've heard that too, and I really hope it's true. It certainly makes sense, and I even agree with the logic. I mean, there can be lots of reasons for killing. Most of them aren't good, but I think there are enough reasons that it doesn't quite rise to the level of depravity as certain other crimes, in SOME cases. I can't think of a single good reason to rape, but I would argue that rape is less socially vilified than it ought to be, and so people's consciences aren't equipped to suffer the proper amount of revulsion (this is a much longer post... and just a side note, here comes the main point!). But CHILD MOLESTATION and CHILD RAPE, not just statutory rape but ACTUAL RAPE OF A CHILD, is the wrongest thing a human being can do to another. Period. PERIOD.

The interesting thing is that THIS sort of behavior is what the commandment about taking God's name in vain is ABOUT (and, bad Christian that I am, I can't remember the number...). When people *use* God as an excuse to perpetuate evil, THAT'S taking God's name in vain. Which is why it's just silly to act like saying "oh my God" is such a big fucking deal.

As to brainwashing women, there's no excuse for these women falling prey to it, but I can understand it. Having spent several years in what I'd say is probably a fundamentalist cult, I can DEFINITELY understand how people can buy into this. A culture like this creates a sort of intellectual cushion. You don't have to worry about truth, because you have Truth. You don't have to worry about the complicated morality we have to abide by in the world, because you have Black and White and Wrong and Right. You don't have to worry about what to do with your life, because someone else will decide for you. It's a comfortable oppression, even if it is oppression. Kind of like a form of Stockholm Syndrome I think. They stop seeing anything wrong with it and just accept it as a way of life, so they don't realize that it harms their daughters.

If only there were some way to slowly introduce these women to the real world -- but they keep their communities so sheltered, they never learn to really think about anything different.

I would be shocked if he ever sees GP (general population). Not only will he be pegged as a child molester, but he's a famous one now, too. He'll be in protective custody from the start.

I think lakhawk is unfortunately right. I suppose they have to keep him away from general population for legitimate reasons, but I say let him get buttfucked. Day after day.

I know you guys are probably right... but if he gets special protection there is no justice in this messed-up world. Argh.

Our system has evolved into one that seems to provide greater protection of criminals' rights than their victims'. (My father was a criminal lawyer and probably was instrumental in bringing this about.)

I used to manage a domestic violence shelter and never got over the shock of how much torture women would endure because they believed that they could not exist without their abusers and the control they exerted. And I absolutely agree that child molestation is the most vicious act a person can commit, and that the penalties are nowhere near severe enough.

HEAR! HEAR! Let him get the same treatment he's been giving out for years and years. What terrible things people do in the name of religion...

I guess compassion and forgiveness and non-violence aren't included in the non-negotiables lawfairy? You are sooo old testament with your eye for an eye mentality. Sure he deserves punishment, and he will get it, but as you note in passing during your vengeful call for blood, two wrongs don't make a right, so you probably should not wish for his prison rape if your own salvation is still at issue.

heartin, I think a lot of the advances we've made for criminals are good rather than bad -- but particularly when it comes to cases of sexual misconduct, I think you're right and we've swung too far to favor criminals over victims. I mean, just look at the Kobe trial -- it's like living in the 1930s or something, as though raping sluts doesn't count. Unbelievable.

cg-c, Amen ;)

lou, don't you have better things to do than post half-assed, sweeping, pointless "observations" in my comments? I don't come to your (likely pathetic) blog and harass you, and I'm no longer bothering you on the faculty blog, where you and Kimball now have free reign to throw out all the anti-Christian epithets your little (emphasis on "little") hearts desire without fear of reprisal from me (since apparently I get under your skin so much that you can't even argue without resorting to ad hominem and ignorant sniping remarks). I have a sneaking suspicion you're one of those asshole lawyers they make the jokes about. Do me a favor -- if, heaven forbid, we ever end up at the same alumni event, save me the restraining order and just stay away, even if you notice out of the corner of your eye I'm doing something horrifically offensive and out of line like wearing a crucifix or defeating a man in an argument about pop culture.

Sorry LF,

I don't blog much anymore. Feel free to post away though. Toughen up for god's sake too.

I just enjoy pointing out the extremely non-Christian things you say, and am still perplexed how you could cast out 90% of Christian institutions surrounding gender and sexuality, yet presereve just the "non-negotiables" whatever they are. I'm pretty sure that if you consider yourself a Christian, you are not supposed to abandon forgivenes and love for violent vengence. That's just my understanding of Christian ethics though.

If you don't like being called out as a hypocrite, my advice would be to avoid saying such hypocritical things on your blog.

P.S. I am one of the nicest most cooperative lawyers in the world. I save my asshole-ness for "Christian" hypocrites.

Or do you argue that hoping a man is raped in prison is consistent with Christian morality?
