With every case of man-on-woman-or-child homicide, domestic or not, there is a coterie of people on the message boards, blogs and in the comments areas of news stories howling gleefully about how the perpetrator (alleged or not) deserves a long and lingering death...or a long prison sentence served in the company of "Bubba." I will admit that I have yowled with the best of them.
But it has got old. Since the case of Laci Peterson, we have been through so many cases of murder and disappearance. Hitting the highlights, there was Lori Hacking, Taylor Beihl, Natalee Holloway, Jennifer and Adrianna Wix, Lisa Stebic, Rachel Cooke, Tara Grant, Michelle Young, Madeleine McCann, Jessica Lunsford, Caylee Anthony, Haleigh Cummings, Carly Bruscia, Janet Abaroa, Jessie Davis, Kimberley Vaughn and her children, the Petit family, Ellen Robb, Riley Ann Sawyer, Stacy Peterson, Rachel and Lilly Entwistle, Susan Powell, the Coleman family...I know I'm forgetting a lot of other names.
In every single case, somebody has commented, "I can hardly wait until he's convicted and gets to meet Bubba!"
I don't care, any more. Meeting "Bubba" or suffering the same fate as their victims doesn't teach any of these narcissistic murderers anything. They can't relate. It just pisses them off and makes them feel hard done by. There is no conscience, no rehabilitation, no improvement.
So let's just keep them locked up and out of our hair for the rest of their miserable lives. They don't get chemo if they get cancer, they don't get lung transplants, they don't get fancy dental work. They don't get married. They don't join some email group so gullible women will write to them and keep their commissary funds topped off. They just live in a cell until they die. I don't even care if they get executed, any more. Just keep them the hell out of society and don't let them reproduce.
I'm tired of them.
