Well, I'm just wrapping up a multitudes-crime book, Haing Ngor's Cambodian Odyssey, how he survived 4 years under Pol Pot, the Khmer Rouge. This book will have you puking your guts out! He even forewarns you, at the beginning of select chapers: If you have a weak stomach, skip to the next chapter! And, of course, I had to test myself to see how strong my stomach was!!!

It's good to know these torture-loving criminals, a number of them, were arrested and had to face the International courts! Never have I read a book of so many murders (a million?) and so much torture, that there'd be a day when Hitler would appear to be a saint in comparison to Pol Pot!

How many of those who were tortured beyond belief, would have welcomed the idea of dying in a gas chamber!!!

That poor girl was Sylvia Likens, she was discovered October 26, 1965 in Indianapolis, IN.

That is so horrible!!! I hadn't heard about her until today. I don't think those boys were punished enough. I can't believe the parents of one of the boys, they could have done SOMETHING. That poor, poor girl.

18-year-old Montana man sentenced to 10 years on child pornography violations

I have no sympathy for child pornography. But this guy was age 18. 18! Come on...maybe counseling would have been an option...

There is no rhyme or reason to punishment in our justice system. That is what annoys me. This kid is serving more time than some men get for Rape. Or murder.

I think certain crimes carry certain sentences. For example, a minimum of 20 years for Mfg. Meth. Of course, each state is different, but it matters not if it is their first arrest, they still have to follow the sentencing guidelines.

Yes, I found out it is a fed offense...mandatory sentence. Which brings up the issue of "mandatory sentencing".

Any news on the DNA stuff supposed to be being tested in the Florida unsolved murder case that is possible connected to the "In Cold Blood" murder case?

I assume there is no connection, otherwise it would have been all over the news.

WVU **** Walk 2013 draws attention to victim blaming, rape culture - News - The Daily Athenaeum - West Virginia University

They need to have these on college campuses, and in high schools. I hope this vision crosses our country, and we have "**** Walks" all over.

No blaming victims.

It's not about blaming the victims. It's about studying certain scenarios to avoid tragic outcomes in the future. Mentally unstable people don't rationalize. A rapist is not gonna think "oh wait she is not asking to be raped, I'm gonna stop now and take her home"

It has been been more than proven than certain clothes or being drunk increase your chances of getting raped

I don't care what is right or what or what is wrong I care about reality. If my daughter gets raped or murdered because she engaged in risky behavior, thinking that no one has the right to rape her just because she was wearing provocative clothes is not gonna bring her back.

Life is not fair, all we can do is protect ourselves.

This past week I came across a sentence of 5 years for Rape First Degree on one guy and another guy was given 10 years for lying in court. Oklahoma has some of the most twisted sentencing on this planet.
