Rant follow-up

Another bright sunny day, with glittering white horses on the lake. A day on which to clear up the garden, prune the roses and haul mulch.

I said two days ago that if you're looking for a rant, A View from Carmine Superiore isn't the weblog to be reading, despite its name. But you may remember that in May I was much exercised by the story of Austrian Josef Fritzl, and in particular about his lawyer's argument that he was mentally unfit to stand trial.

Well, the good news is that a court has ruled he is in his right mind. And that he will stand trial for murder, incest, rape, false imprisonment and slavery.

I wonder how his daughter and grandchildren are.

I too was outraged back in May when i read that was to be his defense. Grrrr I hope this means that he will finally pay for the crimes he committed against his own innocent children.

Hi Louise, Thank you for bringing this up again after the murder of baby P. The feeble excuse that neither of those three individuals could be charged with murder because the authorities don't know who did it is unacceptable. Charge all three and give them life in prison with no mercy. The other inmates will deal with them.

A terrible terrible crime... Everything was so well planned and hidden for - what? - about twenty years and that takes a lot of doing... Only a cold, calculating and lucid mind could have done it, so I applaud the decision.

Amazing how evil can hide in a face so normal. That whole story terrified me. It makes you wonder what's going on in these houses that surround us.

I'm also relieved that they are going to prosecute him as being in his right mind.
