Warning: today’s post deals with a subject that would be upsetting to some, a person convicted of murder and rape. You’ve been warned.
Paul Bernardo. Scum of scum.
For those not familiar, he’s convicted of kidnapping, raping, and murdering two teen girls. Kristen French, and Leslie Mahaffy. He and his then wife, Karla Homolka also drugged Karla’s younger sister, sexually assaulted her, and she died as a result.
He’s also The Scarborough Rapist.
I woke up this morning to news: Paul Bernado engaged. Not in a prison brawl, he is engaged to be married. So, this is to his fiancée.
Dear Bride to Be,
ARE YOU OUT OF YOUR EVER LOVING MIND?!
Seriously. What the heck is your major malfunction? You obviously HAVE one. Nobody who decides that a serial rapist, serial killer is marriage material is healthy. He’s been designated, the FIRST to be designated, a dangerous offender. You *do* know what that means, right? It means, regardless of the actual length of the sentence he was given, he can (and God willing, WILL) be kept in jail until he dies.
Most folks are a bit disappointed that hasn’t already happened.
He’s the poster boy for folks who want to bring back capital punishment.
And you think this guy is INNOCENT?
Yeah, I read the article.
Again I ask, WHAT IS YOUR MAJOR MALFUNCTION?!
Honey, there is VIDEOTAPE of him assaulting these young girls. Freaking VIDEOTAPE. This isn’t a case of iffy lab procedures, or any one of a myriad of potential grey areas that can leave folks with a hint of doubt. VIDEOTAPE.
You have a tattoo on your ankle. “Paul’s Girl”. You’re not the only woman that he’s left lasting marks on.
He raped, tortured and murdered two teen girls. There is no doubt about this. None. He’s responsible for the death of his teenage sister-in-law. His then fiance procured drugs from the vet clinic she worked at, drugged her little sister, and gave her to him as his BIRTHDAY GIFT. He’s convicted of two murders, and THIRTY TWO sex related crimes, including TWELVE rapes, the ‘Scarborough Rapist’ reign of horror and terror. He’s shattered lives. He’s ruined families. He’s caused destruction and death.
And you describe him as ‘a kind man, a Christian, a very nice man’.
Seriously? That’s like describing Vlad the Impaler as ‘A sweet snuggle bunny. Who likes sticks.’
The only accurate word you had in your description is ‘man’. And even then, there are plenty that question that, preferring, ‘monster’ ‘demon’ ‘evil incarnate’ ‘scum’….you get the idea.
Frankly, the idea that Bernardo is even ALLOWED to marry boggles my mind. That he managed to find YOU, someone who is obviously so terribly vulnerable, so easily manipulated, terrifies me. If he can convince you to marry him, easily one of the most hated men in Canadian history, what else could he convince you to do? Praying to God that the Dangerous Offender designation holds, and society never needs to find out.
I’m also praying that the people in your life that love you, your parents, friends, are able to get you into some seriously intense psychiatric care. I’m not saying that as an insult, truly, but there’s obviously something seriously not well with someone who could protest that Bernardo is innocent. A pathological desperation. Something.
I don’t know you. Don’t even know your name. But, if you persist in marrying him, you’re going to be known. Planet wide. And reviled.
Because, if you could be manipulated into marrying him…nobody will trust you to be anything more than a marionette for his purposes, a toy for him to wind up and set forth on a path of violence and mayhem. If you’re willing to marry him, what else are you willing to do?
I don’t even know how to end this. Wish you well? I do. I wish you well, and some serious intervention to get you there.
As for your fiance?
*skin crawling* *gag*
That about sums it up.
