Lazy Ass Wednesday...
since my You Are A Snarky Blogger link doesn't work I will say a few words..I was fully intending on writing about a monster who killed a beautiful young girl in Grand Forks, North Dakota, USA. GF is a place where people from Whateverpeg visit all of the time to shop American and getaway for a weekend.
The trial report (with appropriate good vs. evil photographs displayed daily) is being followed very closely up here because we are neighbours, and the story is about a beautiful young white blonde VICTIM and a swarthy sinister migrant worker career sex-offender jailbird OFFENDER.
Now his head on the chopping block.
A life full of promise versus a life wasted.
But it wasn't about racism until the defense team started going on and on about how toxic farm chemicals absorbed by the psychotic man while performing migrant farming jobs in the 50s and 60s plus a miserable unhappy childhood that drove him to a life of drugs , alchohol, sex crimes and murder. Like Johnny Cochrane said, when you've got nothin',play the race card.The defense team is desperately trying to humanize 'tito' in hopes of evading the DEATH PENALTY and securing LIFE IN PRISON.
This guy had just served a 23 year sentence for three prior sex-related convictions before he snatched his victim from a shopping mall parking lot and then strangled, stabbed and raped his victim.
Now the murderer's mother is telling the court that he is a kind, loving man struggling through life.
It should and ultimately will be, decided based on the fact that a monster killed a girl who could have easily been YOUR or MY daughter and nobody cares if he was purple or green or from outer space. Mitigate that.
If they need volunteers for a firing squad....OK five minutes later after cooling down I could just as easily throw away the key.....except that they ALWAYS let some of them out...and guess what happens every f*%@ing time.
