I know I've commented about this before, but now it's a reality. John Evander Couey, the subhuman piece of filth that kidnapped, raped, and buried 9-year-old Jessica Lunsford alive two years ago has been found guilty on all counts. I would have been incensed by this anyway, but as the step-father of a 9-year-old I cannot help but imagine my little girl in that situation. Sure, she drives me crazy on a daily basis, but what this...this, creature(not even an animal would treat another animal this way) did to that girl...
I'm sorry, I know it may seem melodramatic, but I am actually trying to relate to you exactly what my thoughts are right now, and they are filled with pauses while I try to restrain the rage I feel whenever I think of this disgusting act. I don't know if the English language, or any language for that matter, has the right words to describe the depths of abhorrance that this man, and I only use the word in the sense of his species, encompasses. I am an admitted liberal, bordering on Libertarian, but I would gladly make an exception in my general disapproval of capitol punishment in this case. I have read accounts of Medieval excecutions by torture that seem well suited to this wretched waste of DNA. It is only by the most extreme act of will that I don't describe, in exquisite detail, just what I would like to do to him, but suffice it to say that I can think of stuff the Inquisition would have deemed over the top. I don't want a humane execution, with pain killers and last meals. I want this bastard to suffer far more than any human has suffered, and then I want him to suffer some more. I want him to think on the victims of the Third Reich with envy. And when it's all over, I want to be able to resurrect him and do it all over again.
I'm sorry this isn't funny today, but the rage and disgust in me just won't let go. I can only imagine what her family is going through. If prayer is something you do, then please pray for them that they find some peace in all this.
