The other day I had a few minutes to kill and decided to get into the computer system at work and see how a few of my old charges were getting along.
Many of them ,it seems, haven't gotten any smarter at all and are still in the hole in other camps, probably until they die.
But then I tried to look up old Poop Boy.
If you remember, Ol' PB was down doing ten years for doing something nasty to a child. He was supposed to do some sex offender "treatment" program but never made it there. He got himself locked up straight away so he wouldn't have to do his time out on the hill with the other big bad inmates.
And then he started his cutting himself and playing in his poop so we would think he's crazy and send him to a mental hospital instead.
That didn't work and we got him rolled to a higher security camp so he could play his games with the big boys.
Apparently some judge took pity on the poor lad or some slick talking lawyer (no offense to all the lawyers, but you do have some skeezy ones out there) got him a deal and no Poop Boy is loose out on the streets on probation!!!
The little S.O.B. did less than seven months on a ten year sentence for molesting a child and is now walking the streets like he's been rehabilitated.
I'm more than just a little pissed off about this.
No treatment. No prison time to speak of. Just seven months and a slap on the hand and "Don't do it again".
And how many of you think this little creep has learned his lesson? And what do you want to bet he moved right back into the same house he was living in before, probably at least within walking distance of his victim(s)? And how do you think he/she/they feel about this? Has justice been served?
I know that if I went out on my front porch and smoked a joint I would get at least five years flat AND have to do mandatory drug and alcohol treatment before I could be considered "rehabilitated" enough to rejoin society.
But this little creep........... Oooooooooh.
This makes me mad, if you can't tell.
I had put this post off for a couple of days hoping I would calm down about it some and maybe be able to draw it to a conclusion.
Apparently, that hasn't worked.
Just suffice to say that I am angry and sickened by the whole deal and disillusioned by the system. Not that I had alot of faith in the system to begin with, mind you.
Be mindful of who is walking your streets. They are out there. Free as birds.
