Today’s Criminal Injustices

First, in moment of a staggering genius, the technical wizards at the Texas DPS have decided to track deported sex offenders after all.  Andy Kahan, director of the crime victim’s office for Houston Mayor Bill White, had to ask the DPS to make the change after one such scumbag killed a Houston cop last month.

“Evidently, he came back and obviously didn’t register,” DPS spokeswoman Tela Mange said said of the aforementioned scumbag.

Really?  I never would have guessed that would happen!  After looking for and not finding the killer in the DPS database, Kahan said:  “What’s the harm with just listing them as deported? I was stunned.”

I’m a bit surprised myself but hardly stunned.  It’s been obvious for some time that we didn’t have a clue who illegals are or where they are.  Thanks to Kahan we’ve closed one hole.  Only 9,999 more to do.

I imagine I can hear the gnashing and grinding of teeth in the LULAC office all the way from Houston!  🙂

Second – and I love this, big-time! – three convicted murders on death row have gone on a hunger strike.  This is great news!!  If they starve themselves to death my taxes will go down!  Apparently it’s been really rough for Stephen Moody who, according to Texas Department of Criminal Justice spokeswoman Michelle Lyons, “has lost five pounds during the hunger strike.”

Maybe I shouldn’t get too excited about that tax relief just yet.

Third, a woman who’d cared for her paralyzed mother for the last 15 months has been charged with murder for unplugging her respirator after her husband threatened to leave her because of his mother-in-law.

This is a tough one.  Obviously what she did was wrong, but people do have breaking points and it doesn’t seem as though this woman is in the same class as the starving brutes in the previous story.  For all we know, the mother summoned all of her physical strength and whispered, “I don’t want to live like this!” into her daughter’s ear.  I know I would, were I in her bed.

Fourth, a high school student and convicted sex offender tried to rape a teacher in her classroom after school earlier this week.  Charming.

I know that some misguided individuals will say that the little scumbag has the right to an education.  But seriously, do convicted felons belong in school?  I submit, and I think the teacher in question would agree, that they do not.  The fact of the matter is that when scumbags commit felonies consequences should and must automatically follow.

Despite the risk to my wallet, I hope the teacher sues the school district for all they’re worth.  Maybe then these idiots will get some sense scared into them.

But then again, maybe the perv was really just bad at tag as a boy and all of this is the fault of an education system that sanctioned this cruel “elimination” game.  Little wonder then that he tried to strike back at the system that stripped him of his dignity and inherent right to be called a winner or, at the very least, not a loser.
