It probably wasn't.

Thanks for the recommendation. I wonder who wrote the book tho?

Cooper was charged with numerous counts of sexually assaulting a boy and girl, both under 12. The incidents went on for years, according to warrants.

SLED investigating child molesterís death - Crime & Courts - TheState.com (http://www.thestate.com/2011/11/28/2062097/sled-investigating-child-molesters.html#storylink=misearch - broken link)

Now I believe! In the past I have always said it was up to the courts to take care of child molesters not inmates. But an accident in the shower is not a bad ending at all.

What goes around comes around.

Herman Martin, who was in the cell next to Dahmer's for a while and had some troubling conversations with him, and co-author Patricia Lorenz. Sorry!

I won't lose any sleep over the scumbag.. believe me.

They all ought to wear a certain type of uniform in jail that makes them easily identifiable so they receive prison justice.

this is why they are usually kept in isolation, for their own protection. The prisons have an moral and legal obligation to protect the inmates....rough justice is somewhat satisfying but it still isn't right and I am the first one on hanging people who harm children.....on the other hand........

2. It shows the authorities are not in control of the prison. The prison staff should run the prison, not the inmates.

I have no sympathy for child molesters. I do believe criminal penalties should be well known and there should be nothing secret about them. I would think you would get a maximum deterrent effect on those who are contemplating committing a crime that way. I oppose a "passive-aggressive" approach to the law.
excellent post, as always.

At least this one won't be let out so he can do it again. I personally think child molesters should be given the death penalty anyway.
