Justice takes time, but how long is just too long.
"Lady Justice is bind,
Someone take off her blindfolds
She can not see what is just,
Her scales need readjustment"- By Dulac
So I was going through some news articles and I found this one story that upset me, but why it upset me doesn't seem to be the popular opinion. In 1984, 17 year-old college freshman Liz Seccuro was at a Frat party with a friend of hers. She got separated from her friend when two guys gave her a drink spiked with a roofie, then a third guy entered the room and they basically gang raped her. That's a very fucked up event that shouldn't happen to anyone. The next day she goes to the Dean's office and reports the guys who raped her, now some asshole, or asshole tells her not to go to the cops and let the University handle it. Now this shouldn't have to be said but, fuck schools that do that. University of Virginia(around an hour or so away from my house) fuck you. But, she still should have went to cops anyway. But hey this story just keeps getting better and better. 20 or so years later, one of the guys sends her a letter apologizing for raping her. Now, I'm not condoning what he did, nor am I defending him taking advantage of that woman but forgiveness is something I believe in, on top of that, supposably, he's a recovering alcoholic and apologizing for his misdeeds he done while intoxicated was one of his steps to recover or something. Now in all fairness we don't know hi level of intoxication during the incident, for all we know he was fully aware of what was going on. Regardless of that, going back to my point about forgiveness, now I don't know the full story, but they exchanged email addresses and through email he basically confess to what he did and pulled a T-Pain (blame it on the alcohol). So after she gets his confession, she takes it to the police. (Ok, hold the fuck on- isn't the statue of limitations up already?) No, no it isn't. So she's able to bring charges against this guy, 20 years after the fact. And he gets sentenced to 10 years in prison. The fuck? Now he only had to serve 6 months of that(people are very upset over that), but he shouldn't have served any time at all. I mean, I have the same problem with trying these Nazi guys, in fact it's a waste trying them because it happened so long ago that they were able to live full lives and probably don't have much time left anyway. As I'm reading the comments of the article and seeing these people upset he only had to serve such a short sentence, it makes me think, "how would these people feel if they made a mistake decades ago, owned up to it, and then went to jail for it?" It's nonsense and a gross waste of Tax dollars. But it gets better, Liz is being called courageous and all that good stuff, because she's writing a book that she's bound to profit off of. I'm no professional publisher, but c'mon seriously? I'd rather hear the guy's story because it sounds a lot more interesting. In fact dude (I know you aren't reading this) I'll help you write it. Lol justice huh? The moral of this story has to be "If you every commit a crime and get away with it, don't feel sorry and don't confess no matter how long ago it happened. But hey, Justice is blind.
