Did you ever think you’d see a day when people would go to bat for a convicted serial killer?
Consider the case of Karla Homolka who joined ex-husband Paul Bernardo in the rape, murder and torture of at least three minors, including her own 15-year-old sister.
Homolka deserves to be behind bars forever but a “deal with the devil” scored her a 12-year sentence for manslaughter instead sparing her from being locked up forever.
Karla’s been free since 2005 and now has three kids. She currently resides in Chateauguay, Quebec, where it was recently revealed that she was serving as a volunteer at a local school!
But the catalyst that’s making some in the mainstream media and the political world go to bat for Killer Karla is a Facebook page called "Watching Karla Homolka."
Watch as I explain what all the fuss is about, which will surely have some wondering whether these outraged pundits have children of their own.
Was it champagne socialist NDP leader Thomas Mulcair who a few months ago implied that we need to forgive Killer Karla? That pronouncement speaks volumes and perhaps helps explain why Mulcair will soon be his party’s ex-leader.
We’re lectured by political and media elites that the Homolka situation is due to a flawed criminal justice system and while it isn’t perfect, it’s the only one we have so we just therefore respect and abide by it.
But we also have a system in our social media world that allows people to monitor Homolka and take photos of her in public.
I applaud all those virtual-world vigilantes on Facebook.
They’re making Karla’s life miserable via all legal means possible.
Label it revenge if you must because when it comes to Canada’s schoolgirl-killer who literally got away with murder, revenge works for me.
