No Sex Offender Should Walk Free

Friday, March 18, 2005

I don't know about you, but I'm getting tired of reading about young girls getting kidnapped and murdered by slimy thugs with past records of rape and sexual misconduct.

It looks like 9-year-old Jessica Lunsford is indeed dead, as a registered sex offender has admitted kidnapping and killing the young girl.

The Associated Press reports that Couey has an extensive criminal record that includes arrests for burglary, carrying a concealed weapon and indecent exposure. In 1991, he was arrested in Kissimmee on a charge of fondling a child under age 16.

During a house burglary in 1978, Couey was accused of grabbing a girl in her bedroom, placing his hand over her mouth and kissing her. He was sentenced to 10 years in prison but was paroled in 1980.

Two years for sneaking into a girl's bedroom and kissing her? Nice.

Gotta' love the justice system. It's because of cases like this that I don't so mind the death penalty. After all, we here in Florida had no problem killing Terri Schiavo today.

Luckily for John Evander Couey, he'll die a much more humane death.
