Is it ok if I hope that -this- guy gets raped in jail?
Because it seems like he really deserves to get raped...a lot.
Whatever keeps the tears coming. My eternal life elixir must be completed.
Would you say the same thing about a woman teacher in prison for raping a student?
Well, I wasn't being serious, but in actuality, he's probably less likely to get raped than the average prisoner. Prison officials are going to want to avoid the hassle that comes with having an inmate who's high-profile and a cop, (AKA a huge target) so they'll probably just get throw him in "protective" solitary for the next few decades.
The base part of me wants him to have should raw sewage sown into the sockets where his eyes were and the endless rape and torture of his limbless torso should be broadcast around the universe. This is what you get and you should be DEEPLY thankful because it is far better than you would ever deserve. I am above you, little man, now and forever.
However, that isn't what jail is supposed to be for. He should be kept safe and he should be put to meaningful use to society while every attempt at his rehabilitation is made. This is the only recourse of a mature and advanced society.
We'll find out if that worked in the year 2278.
But the only reason you get to enjoy the schadenfreude of his crying is because he knows how horrible prison is.
And while I love the idea of the benevolent prison system that just tries to reform human beings into good soylent members of society, I also realize that many humans are emotionless psychopaths that will never, ever, be able to sympathize with their fellow humOns. For these semi-people, the only consequence of any importance is one that significantly harms them...and exactly because psychos tend to rise quite high in society, prison must always be a bad place that they fear and try to avoid by following the law.
Nobody wants even a safe comfortable prison, though, with maybe the exception of people who cannot take care of themselves (and the Onion's autistic reporter of course). Going to prison means putting an end to all your choices and simple joys, from ordering a pizza to raping minorities.
We will never ever get adequate payback from this guy, no matter how ferociously he is raped, because raping him doesn't undo any of the horror the victims endured. This guy has inflicted suffering upon society and it can't be un-inflicted, certainly not by allowing him to be raped. At which point we're left debating the visceral appeal of making him suffer vs. the tacit message that rape is sometimes justified.
Society justifies murder for some cases. Justifying rape for some cases isn't the biggest leap.

I wonder how good his math was through all of this.

Good riddance to bad rubbish.

That guy's got a lot of sexual batteries.
This guy was some kind of walking rape machine. When did he find time to eat?
I imagine one could rape and eat at the same time.

This video is downright cathartic. I've been following this trial and I really had my doubts that he'd get his. This news made my morning.
ALSO: Today is his 29th birthday. :D
I do hope a well-meaning aunt sent him a birthday card that said "Today is the first day of the rest of your life".

I'd like to know what happened to all of his cronies in the department that knew this was going on but did nothing to stop him.
Cushy jobs with their local Fraternal Order chapter, most likely.
Which is likely the same thing he thought he would have until he could retire to his pig pension.
|Hooker - 2015-12-11 |
If he was smart, he would have just shot them all, which I believe he's allowed to do.
Hooker's a good cop.
All he would have had to say is "I feared for my safety and the safety of others."
You beat the suspect within an inch of his life, raped the girl and took all the drugs!
Maybe that would've flown in your old town but that's not how we do police work in my department!
If I had my way, you'd be directing traffic until you collect your pension, but the mayor has a hard-on for you and, dammit, if you didn't get results today.
Good work Hooker, now get the fuck out of my office.

To be fair, there were a lot of rapes he wasn't found guilty of.

Are these concurrent or consecutive years? I know pretty much no one ever gets this kind of sentence consecutively, but it would be fun if that were the case.
|Scrotum H. Vainglorious - 2015-12-11 |
His face at 11:40 as he faces the jury.
Of course. As a cop he thought the jury would do their usual shitty job of holding cops to account, he's thinking 'if I gunned down a 12 year old black kid they'd have got me off, why not now?'.
Fuck him and fuck any 'compassion' for this guy. I wish him a long life in prison.
|infinite zest - 2015-12-11 |
So, if 13 counts gets 263 years, how long will Bill Cosby be incarcerated for? This should be on every math quiz.
|morva - 2015-12-11 |
As the sentences went on and on, I started laughing more and more wildly.
I don't know if this makes me a bad person or a good person but this is the best schadenfreude ever.
Scrotum H. Vainglorious
The first sentence was 8 years and I'm like yeah that's tough but certainly doable. Then the next is 5 years and I'm thinking yup 13 years ain't going to be easy but at least it's not life. Then the 20 year sentence drops and it's like game over man, game over.
I laughed at the little pat on the back at 11:15, accompanied with a thousand mile stare. I'm just surprised that I had heard nothing about this before yesterday.

Gotta soapboax this, bear with me (or not)...
To hell with schadenfreude. If you actually had skin in the game, if you actually were in a situation where you had the guts to challenge someone and stop something harmful, and in the immediate aftermath you felt really good because wow, what a shithead that other person was, and hell yeah, I put them in their place... Ok, maybe we can debate that. But this isn't that.
Spectator schadenfreude. A good person should feel ashamed of it. It's rotten.
Most of the peanut gallery here is old enough to know that as you get older, if you have any moral development, if you try to be honest with yourself, you look at your younger self and realize that you're significantly different now. For most of us, thankfully, it's little things, maybe you tormented someone, bullied someone, took advantage of someone, whatever. And if you're really honest, you don't just see the actions of kid you, but young adult you, and adult you. And the weird thing is, although it was you, it's also not you, all those years have changed what you is. 1995 you isn't 2000 you, who isn't 2015 you.
When Morgan Freeman gives his speech at the end of Shawshank, what a powerful performance, what a succinct indictment of prison and the justice system. Yet the basic moral reasoning that should follow, the reflection that follows that performance, what of that? The movie orchestrates you to feel compassion, but it's paired with an argument, and it's not just about the justice system. It's about how you're not the same, you're like two different people, or many different people, as the years pass. Everyone, not just prisoners. Young, loving people. Young, smug rapists.
At what point is prison torturing a significantly different person?
It's easy to have compassion for someone who's likeable, but when someone is just vile, someone like this guy, well that's when it actually counts. We can't all be Sister Helen Prejean, but shit, I mean, let's not fucking celebrate being smug, polite monsters, like it's ok to be rotten if you're in good company.
Excuse me, sir. Just regurgitate the tired tears meme and quickly move along so the next person in the comment line can step up.
Hahaha, yeah. Let he who has not pathologically raped poor women cast the first stone.
