Give the guy a break. Rae, Turmel, suicide prevention groups, bleeding hearts in the media. Give him a break.
Senator Boisvenu has a dog in this fight, so to speak. He is in the Senate based on his efforts for victim’s rights in this country. He knows about this first hand, unfortunately, his own daughter having been raped and killed by a serial offender. He is allowed to be angry at our justice system, or suggest we need a more, let us say, absolute way of keeping these mis-wired carbon units from reentering society and doing damage again. And again.
We’re not for the death penalty per se. Especially not if it’s a US style proscribed sentence, that seems to inequitably applied to convicts. But, perhaps it should be considered as a tool in a judge’s tool box when it comes to sentencing the most egregious offenders, and the ones who’ve most obviously committed some horrible crime against our society.
So, if we had an award opposite to the DOTW, an award for courageous authenticity and saying what you believed, damn the political correctness, Senator Boisvenu would win that award this week.
