Even Miracles Take A Little Time

jaycee-dugardI’m sure everyone has heard about the amazing story of Jaycee Dugard. Kidnapped as she was heading to the bus stop one morning in 1991, all the while her step dad watching helplessly. I remember when this happened, we’re the same age. And like most people I’m sure we all assumed she was gone forever and had forgotten about it. I did, I had forgotten until I heard the story that she’d been found and alive none the less. I was shocked and so happy for her family. Could you even imagine, your daughter, niece, cousin being kidnapped and assumed dead? Then to find out 18 years later she’s alive and has two babies of her own. I cannot fathom it. The story about who did this to her and what this poor girl went through is heart breaking to say the least. She now has two girls by this man that raped her repeatedly through out the years. To think, those two little girls find out the girl that they called their sister was really their mom. I can only wonder how she feels about him, about herself.

My question is this…how do you hide someone for 18 years??? How do you manipulate someone to believe twisted lies and never try to escape? I guess anyone around me could be doing this. How would I know? Someone would have to know something though right? The cops were called to this house a couple times on reports of people living in tents in the back yard yet no police officer ever entered the back yard or the house. How, why?

What makes me the most sick out of all of this is he’s supposed to be in prison. For what? Federal kidnapping charges, sentenced 50 years in 1976 served 11 and 3 years later Jaycee is missing. Sick, twisted, wrong in any and every way possible. This could have been prevented and because this man has such a horrific back ground why in the world would they not throughly check things out?? I have such a hard time understanding this! This innocent 11 year old girls childhood had been ripped away from her. She’ll never be “normal” and that’s just being honest. This girl will forever be scarred. Not to mention her daughters? This cruel and insane world is all they know, this man they call dad is all they know. No schooling, no real interaction with the real word.

I cannot and will not even try to understand any of it, what kind of person does this? It’s inconceivable to me. I’ve been face to face with monsters in my life but it doesn’t even compare to what Jaycee Dugard has gone through. I hope with all my might that she will someday find some sort of normalcy in her life. Miracles do happen, not too often, certainly not often enough but even miracles take a little time.

    I can never understand what is wrong with the legal/court/prison systems that can allow people like this to be free after only a fraction of theeir sentence then they repaet a similar crime to what they were initially jailed for.
    This poor young woman & her daughters have suffered so terribly at this mans hands. Lethal injection the mongrel I say, a bullet is a pretty lethal injection. The more I think about it the angrier I get

    It’s just sick that anyone can have the thought process that this guy has. Our legal system failed big time on this one! I hope she can recover and her children can lead as normal of a life as possible because that’s the least they deserve.

    I couldn’t believe what I was reading when I read about this in the newspaper. What kind of sick, twisted f*%^er could do something like this to another human being? It was a DESPICABLE crime that should have a DESPICABLE punishment but we all know he will get a slap on the wrist. AGAIN!

    I just can not imagine the emotional and psychological issues going on in the Dugard family.

    I think the BIGGEST PROBLEM here is that the “system” repeatedly failed. The Pervert did not serve his sentence. Then you have the government employee who has dozens of cases to oversee who repeatedly went to the Pervert’s home and never saw a trace of something fishy?!

    It’s a problem of not enough oversight of government employees. Period! SOME government employees are hard working and EARN their money but for the most part MOST of them don’t.

    Take for instance our adoption case. The judge orders the birth mom and dad to take drug tests. Every single month for over two years they either take them and fail or don’t even show up for the tests. Is there any follow-up? Are there any consequencse (except that they can’t have access to their kids)? NO! The judge orders them to take their pay stubs down to the Clerk of the Courts to sign up to pay child support. Did they ever do that? NO! Were there any other consequences? NO!

    The other scary thing is that we have all heard that our judicial system is the best in the world. God help us all!!

    Is it any wonder that some people feel the need to take the law into their own hands?

    I have several thoughts about this.

    1) About Jaycee and her children: they have had a unique experience, and learned to see the world through unique windows. They have learned some things that will make them wiser in some ways than the rest of us. I hope that whoever takes charge of their psychological healing is able to help divert the bad toward the good. There is no point focusing on how horrible most of their existence has been. With God, all things are possible.

    2) About the rapist. I agree this is a complete failure of the government “system.” Specifically:

    (a) Nobody was monitoring him closely. Did not his background justify something more than a periodic visit to the parole office?

    (b) The local cops didn’t know he was a sex offender, even though that information was readily available to them. They did not look him up before going to his house to check on a complaint.

    (c) When people called the police, they didn’t investigate the specific accusation at all. Why was this? Either the cops were unmotivated or they were afraid of being accused of infringing on this scumbag’s “right” against unwarranted search and seizure.

    (d) The liberal interpretation of constitutional freedoms creates barriers to cracking cases like this, and actually encourages people to do these things. Do you think that guy would have a tent city of stolen kids if the cops could just walk through there any time of the day or night?

    (e) The punishment for sex offenses – especially child sex offenses – in this country are way too lax. Personally I don’t see why any child molester is ever allowed to see the light of day again. I mean that. I can’t fathom why the liberals not only want these people on the streets, but want them to have unencumbered access to more children. I think for every repeat pedophile who gets locked up, a liberal who pushed for their rights should be locked up with him. And that includes Obama, who took a position unpopular even in Illinois in favor of pedophile rights.

    3) What I really wonder about is that woman (wife?) who was living right there and watching / facilitating all of this. What was going on in her mind???

    … and this will KEEP ‘EFFN HAPPENING because people are not held accountable for their actions. Of course this ill POS was let out early for “good behavior” and ended up ruining this poor girls life- keeping her in captivity and raping her.

    We cannot walk the streets of our country at night because of the crime –

    Why wouldn’t evil people keep doing BAD BAD things to others if they are only going to get a slap on the wrist? Or even better, 3 square meals a day and medical care? Some prisons let them have T.V. and take college courses.

    Oh, I get so hot when I think about how this works. There needs to be stiffer punishment to fit the crimes, and I wholeheartedly believe in capital punishment. I’ll even give the injection, for free! GAHHHHH!

    This story just breaks my heart. Sick sick bastid and his disgusting wife who was in on it too! Cannot imagine, *shakes head* –
