POSTED RESPONSES TO A COLUMN BY TIMOTHY APPLEBY IN TORONTO'S GLOBE AND MAIL
"Michael Rafferty’s evil defies explanation"
Sorry, Timothy Abbleby, this is a ridiculous piece of superstitious bunkum.
Nature is constantly conducting its genetic experiments on us, a process that's simply part of ongoing evolution.
Some of these experiments produce monsters unacceptable to the standards of a humane society, as in the case of all psychopaths and child predators.
But using the word "evil" to describe them not only explains nothing, it in fact adds to humanity's already overloaded store of mumbo-jumbo and misunderstanding.
This man, capable of such vicious acts, will be where he belongs, removed from society.
"See how all the LibDips tip their heads back and bawl when Vic Toews trys to empower the police over this kind of scum"
Regular use of mindless expressions like "LibDips" surely reveals a mentality not altogether unrelated to Rafferty's twisted one.
"Dead man walking. Sooner or later the inmates will get to him. Can't be soon enough."
Again, here, as in a number of other posts, we see a bent way of thinking not unrelated to Rafferty's.
What else is this but primative bloodlust?
