Monday Teeny Poll

By Glinda

Jaycee Lee Dugard

Last week’s poll asked if you thought the fathers of this generation were more involved than those of the previous generation.  57% of you gave a rousing shout of “Yes!”  I think it’s hard to say, because in some ways, our culture is more child-centered than it was when we were growing up, thus giving the dads of today many more opportunities.  But, I’m inclined to think that this generation of dads is pretty progressive when it comes to child-raising.

As for today’s poll, I debated a while on whether to post this or not, but being the angry, vengeful creature that I can be, I decided to go ahead. 

I’m sure you have all heard about the Jaycee Dugard story by now.  If not, go ahead and click to read about every parent’s worst nightmare, with the exception of the death of a child.

    My husband thinks that we should torture him next to terrorists to scare them into talking. Life in prison, he’s already been sentenced to that! I would love to see him suffer, but the cheapest and easiest thing is just to kill him as quickly as possible. I also think that we should confiscate the pensions of all the public employee’s who screwed this up and give them to Jaycee and her daughters.

    I don’t think we should look at the death penalty as a way to save some quick cash.

    I am unaware of what public employees “screwed this up.” There was the FBI agent who worked tirelessly with the leads he was given and said he could tell you tens of thousands of people who did not do this. The same agent who called this girl’s mother every year on Jaycee’s birthday. I also do not think that charges should be brought against the neighbors who had this going on next to their backyards for years yet did not know it and are probably sick about it now.

    Life is not CSI with the clues laid out before you and people should not be judged for what they could not have known. This hideous man should be the one judged, however, and anyone who was complicit in his crimes.

    Well, Raincoaster, what do you suggest we do with a man who has been a violent sexual predator since puberty? Shall we sentence him to life again? When he is released on parole, you can help him find a nice home in your neighborhood. I hear he is a really quiet neighbor. Or if we get really lucky, we can spend the $47,000 per year to keep him incarcerated until he dies. Incarcerated with cable, conjugal visits, and better health care than I can provide for either of my two children.

    And pjs, while I don’t blame the FBI agent who was in charge of her case, there were 911 calls made to the local police department about Garrido, a registered sex offender, having children living in his back yard. The responding officer warned Garrido about not having unpermitted buildings in his back yard and left. If that is not incompetence beyond imagination, I don’t know what is. They weren’t given clues like a CSI show, they were given a road map.
