Kill them all!

02 August 2012, 17:35
I really believe that there is a line that you cross where you give up your right to claim human rights.
That line is a very solid one - the violation of another human being's human rights.

Many years ago, as part of my studies, I did interviews with many prisoners and victims of harsh crimes.
What I found was that the weight and impact of a criminal goes far beyond the criminal act. It impacts the criminal's family, the victim, the victim's family and society as a whole.

A rapist, child molester, murderer etc. crosses a line that cannot be reversed. The damage is simply too far reaching for it to fade into the past. That 'person' becomes like a dog that has turned on it's master - a dangerous liability!

I truly believe that thieves and druggies can be rehabilitated, but these other animals are a gamble of the worst kind. They have shown that given the right (or wrong) circumstances, they consider human life cheap and disposable.

In South Africa, a life sentence means you could be out on the streets in a decade or two. We unleash these monsters back on society under some misguided 'human rights' motive which does not take into account the 'human rights' of the potential victims out there.

One of Zuma's birthday gifts is now suspected for raping someone over 80 years old.
Why does no-one see just how screwed up this system is?You don't let a wolf out among your chickens! Especially when it has already killed one!

By allowing these animals the right to life, we deny ourselves the right to peace. We put our families in harms way...
We may not deserve the rape and murder that is inflicted upon us, but we certainly bring it on ourselves because conduct permitted is conduct endorsed.

I simply don't get it. Are we doff or am I missing something here?

An ode to silence, and peace

"Seek peace, and pursue it" is an injunction from the Good Book. It was, I gather, something King David once said. And who better to wish for it, given his tumultuous life.  Read more...
