The Death Of Innocence

When I heard this, my first thought was, Where were the parents?

Then I thought, I'm not sure the parents could do anything.

Earlier this week in England came a news report of a 13 year old boy.

He was watching porn on his family's Xbox 360.

And he decided he wanted to try it.

So he raped his 8 year old sister.

Now, like I said, the immediate reaction to this is, "Where were the parents?"

In actuality, the correct reaction is, How do we kill this kid?

This is disgusting enough, but here's the part that makes it horrifying -- the kid told police that he chose his sister because she was smaller and she wouldn't remember it.

He just said it to the investigators, like we are talking about buying groceries.  And that's the problem.  Not only his logic, but the casualness with which he talked about it.

This is how psychotic people behave.  They decide to do something and simply select someone that enables them to do it with the least amount of risk involved.  No remorse, no concern, no nothing.  This isn't the result of bad upbringing.  This is a sick mind that sees no reason why what they did was wrong.

I feel sorry for the sister.  I hope she's strong, and that she pulls together and can live a normal life.  But the one place where she should be safe, with her family, and that trust, those roles, are irrevocably shattered by this monster.

I think the 13 year old should be executed.  Because he'll want to do something again, and he won't care, he'll just find a way to do it.  And it doesn't matter what others go through, they got what they wanted.

Those of you who don't believe there is such a thing as evil?  Look harder.  It's there.

I Don't Feel Like Coming Up With A Clever Header Right Now

Wow, my days just keep getting better and better.

Just got off the phone with my parents.  Who had great news!

"Your sister might be getting out of prison this April!  Isn't that great?!?"

"Peter?  Hello?"

Donald Duck Fuck Everything

The long and the short of it is they are considering sending her to a halfway house, possibly around April.  She would be there for about a year.  It would be at least three months before she could leave the house for work release or to go home on weekends.  She also gets some bling, an ankle monitor.

I love how I spent over 42 years trying to prove my loyalty and dependability to my parents, and they don't trust me.  Meanwhile, my sister gets all the hope and praise and "Oh, she sounds so together!  She's been dry for almost 150 days!  She's been using for so long!  She was even using when she married her husband!"

Yeah, that explains why she went through with it.

My mom laughed at that.  But she and dad are still wondering about the silence and the subtle rage even I could hear in my voice.  Or maybe they weren't wondering, because they did mention that I should be the big brother and support and encourage her.

She gets all the breaks.  Every.  Last.  One.
