Indescribable horrors

Details emerge in W.Va. torture case
By JOHN RABY and TOM BREEN, Associated Press Writers

BIG CREEK, W.Va. - For at least a week, authorities say, a young black woman was held captive in a mobile home, forced to eat animal waste, stabbed, choked and repeatedly sexually abused — all while being peppered with a racial slur.

Fucking inbred ignorant hillbilly mother fuckers!

Last week I was all over Louisiana for being a backwoods bunch of dickheads for perpetrating the Jena Six case. I actually implied that around here, such terrible things couldn't conspire together to make such injustice occur. Well fuck me.

Ya know, sometimes, I hear stories that make me believe that old time justice might not have been a bad thing at times. Maybe it would be best if they just let these pieces of shit lose. Let nature take it's course. How else do we achieve justice in a case like this? I don't know exactly where this woman is from in Charleston, but I know black families from most areas of the city. What kind of burden will they be under to explain something like this to their kids. How will they do it in such a way that their kids won't develop serious negative feelings toward the larger class of people that these slack jawed hillbilly morons are a part of. How is any black person from West virginia going to feel next time they need to take a trip down into the southern part of the state. What if someone needs to send their wife or daughter down Route 214 into the southern West Virginia coal country? There is a large black population down there in Logan County. How are those people going to be effected by such a recreant event.

And what of "20 year old Megan Williams?" How will she continue to live her life knowing that someone is capable of such indescribably horrible acts? Will she ever find peace or will her dreams be haunted by this horror forever?

Finally, what about the 49 year old mother and her 25 year old son, the 46 year old mother and her 23 year old daughter and the two twenty something males who perpetrated this act? These people were all intimately involved in all the horrors committed against this woman.

I don't understand what motivates such behavior in human beings. This isn't "animal" behavior. Animals don't act like that. Wild animals always have some reason for committing violence against other beings. This is bahvior that has no explanation or even the remotest of reason. This is the kind of behavior that makes an anti-capital punishment advocate like me say "well, maybe there are cases where we're better off just exterminating these mother fuckers." We certainly don't want them ever be free again or ever breeding, do we?

Sorry, no cute barnyard philosophy here. This defies anything philosophical, logical or of reason.

One more thing. If you're a white person reading this, next time you hear someone use a racial slur, think of what happened to this young woman. Think of the people who did these things and how racial slurs efffected their life and shaped them into the monsters that they became. Now, next time you hear another white person use a racial slur, do you really want to stand there and make like you didn't hear it? Is it really something you should just let pass and ignore?

Think about it.

I actually had shivers go through my body.
