In light of the revelations that Karla Homolka has been volunteering at her children's private school, NDP leader Thomas Mulcair thinks to might be time for us all to forgive Karla Homolka.
No way in hell.
Homolka was sex fiend serial killer Paul Bernardo’s wife and partner in crime. They kidnapped, raped, tortured, and killed her sister 13-year-old sister Tammy, 14-year-old Leslie Mahaffy and 15-year-old Kristen French. Homolka actually married Bernardo between their first and second killing.
Homolka struck a deal with the prosecution to testify against her Bernardo before video tapes the deranged pair made to commemorate their crimes were found. Those tapes showed her to be a full and willing participant in the rapes and murders.
Paul Bernardo was a serial rapist in and around Scarborough, Ontario for years, responsible for the rapes of at least 14 women and as many as 53 but he never killed anyone that we know of until Karla came along. She may have been the catalyst for their killing spree and yet she is free, living her life like a normal person, with kids and sports and school, instead of rotting in jail with Bernardo where she should be for the rest of her disgusting life.
Would anyone dare ask if it’s time to forgive serial child killer Clifford Olson? He was a child rapist serial killer just like Homolka. If we forgive Homolka, we should be forgiving John Wayne Gacy, Ted Bundy, and even Paul Bernardo. In the tolerant Canada imagined by the NDP, Paul Bernardo should get out prison, have kids, volunteer at their school and get forgiven by Thomas Mulcair.
Why is it even time to forgive this evil hag? Because she’s a woman? Because she’s a mom now? Homolka is those things in spite of herself. Homolka is still a monster even though she is a middle-class lady who looks like any other soccer mom. Actually, that’s what makes her even more sinister. She looks normal and acts normal.
Besides, women already serve way less time than men for the exact same crimes. Men receive 63% longer sentences, on average, than women do. Female killers already get off easy. Homolka is the rule, not the exception.
It’s even not for us to muse about forgiving Homolka and it’s especially not for politicians. It’s for the French and Mahaffy families to do that when and if they are ever ready.
But, all of this, it’s just so typically NDP. If they aren't worshipping political mass murderers like Chavez and Castro, they are so loose on crime that they are forgiving serial killers.
