Posted on | December 2, 2012 | 16 Comments

Most people underestimate the human capacity for evil, but it’s everywhere and claims new victims daily. A few examples from the past week:

That’s just one week. Evil keeps busy all year long.

    And yet, we think that the best way to combat this evil is to lock the perpetrators away for 100,000 years, which translates to 1.5 months in real time, and then let them out if they register as Bad People and promise they’ll never do it again.
    It seems we’re doing something wrong here. I just can’t figure out what.

    These would be this week’s list of reasons why the “He needed killin'” defense needs to be brought back.

    It seems to me that the miracle of God’s grace is not that he can make a relatively small number of people as good as they could possibly be, but that he keeps most of us from becoming as bad as we could possibly be.

    The last little victim, Jersey Bridgeman is especially heartbreaking. Her father is in prison after getting caught chaining her up last year. May she rest in peace.

    Oh, come on, people. Back when they were introducing the public access sexual crimes database, a very knowledgable therapist went on TV and explained that after she had taken child molesters through an intensive course of long-term therapy, only 48% of them went to commit another molestation.

    Now, really, is a barely one-in-two chance that one of these poor misunderstood persons might sodomize your child any reason to condemn them? And you wonder why Obama voters reject you…

    Wonder what the recidivism rates would be if child molesters were also castrated?

    Conduct the castration at the collarbone and it’s zero.

    There are too many that “need killin’.” Disposal of a 100 million+ bodies would put a strain on the system.
