When The Law Let's You Down

Let me ask you a rhetorical question....How do you feel about the Casey Anthony verdict?  I have not met a person yet who isn't outraged by the findings, and the apparent slap on the hand of a mother, human, egg supplier who covered up the murder eh hem...accidental drowning of beautiful Caylee Anthony.  Well let me share another story with you that may very well put you over the edge.  Please make sure you're sitting down...sigh.

Weldon Marc Gilbert of Washington state is a wealthy commercial pilot acting as his own defense counsel, so he gets to personally review the evidence against him.  Not such a big deal, right.  But wait, there's more!  Gilbert is accused of child rape and molestation and the "evidence" that he is allowed to view is the 100s of pornographic material seized from his home in 2007.  Reports indicate that he lured children to his house.  Once inside, he would get them drunk, tie them down and beat them, all with the camera rolling, detectives said.

According to ABC News, authorities found a stash of pornographic videotapes and DVDs depicting 250 scenes involving 40 individuals, including one of a boy who was 12 years old. Police also allegedly found a cassette tape on which Gilbert described his spanking fantasies in addition to a variety of sex toys, paddles, blindfolds, spanking devices and two handguns.

Apparently Gilbert will be put in a private room whenever he wants to watch the researchOUR legal system allows this obscenity!  Imagine how the children and their parents must feel knowing that this pedophile gets to relive their rape and abuse as often as he wants.  Sickening!  The only rule is that he is not able to show the tapes to other inmates, and must have one person supervise him while he researches.

This travesty and the results of the Casey Anthony case are a blatant indication that we have to put pressure on lawmakers in order to protect our children.  Because , clearly the laws that are in place are wishy washy, and reward the perpetrators instead of the victims.
