I shake my head at what has been going on in Canada, what with charges brought against commentator Mark Steyn and others for "inflammatory" speech. But this shit is whack.
The Canadian Coalition Against the Death Penalty (CCADP) is, well, against the death penalty. Some may argue, so is the Catholic Church. But that does not mean you offer yourself as an instrument to the evil. And by providing convicted killers the means to have web pages, that is what happens.
Alerted to this site by a newspaper article, I reviewed some of the web pages for California. What a rogue's gallery!
- Richard Allen Davis - who kidnapped, sexually assaulted, and then murdered 12-year-old Polly Klaas - writes: "It was always my thought that if I wasn't willing to stay out of crime, then it wouldn't be right to stick a woman with a child of mine. (Smile) I have been told that this was the only decent outlook that I had." How thoughtful.
- Then there is Kevin Cooper, who murdered a Chino Hills family and had his execution stayed to obtain DNA testing that he said would exonerate him - only to have it support the position that he committed the killings (yeah, well, when your DNA is found as well as a victim's on a bloodied t-shirt . . .) - but he maintains his innocence, of course. I found amusing that the murders occurred the night of June 4, 1983, but as proof of the unfairness, Cooper offers: "On June 11th, 1983, the victims' stolen car was found in Long Beach, CA. The person who found the car told police that he did not remember it being there the previous day. Kevin Cooper was in Tijuana, Mexico on June 5th, 1983. " And your point is . . .?
- Oh and Charles Ng. What, he and his buddy got their jollies torturing, raping and murdering up to 25 people in Northern California - and filming it to boot, provding great evidence to convict Ng (his partner, Leornard Lake, blew his brains out after an arrest for firearms). Oh, did I mention two of the victims were baby boys? He writes: "My case, from inception to verdict, has been both a travesty and outrage of mistreatments and miscarriage of justice. Because of these and other reasons, I constantly feel misplaced, sad and lonely - like a dolphin caught inside a tuna net." Please. Give me a tuna net, a backyard pool, and 15 minutes with this whack job.
- Don't get me started - yeah, pretty boy and manly man Scott Peterson has his web page as well. Celebrities demand that, you know. What is even more appalling is that he posts pictures of him and Laci on it, because you know, he really is the victim here, a poor and pitiful widower. But how's this for chutzpah? He writes about hearing a rumor of a scholarship established in Laci's name and states, "This is titled "Perhaps a Commendation" because if a rumor I heard is correct, my Mother-in-Law, Laci's Mother, deserves applause. The rumor is that all the profits from her forthcoming book will be given to an educational charity, perhaps the fund at Downey High. I hope that this rumor is true." I am sure she appreciates this gesture, you jackhole, especially coming from you after you killed her daughter and unborn grandson.
Nothing like getting the word out, CCADP, you gullible idiots.
