Hi All,
This is a true story.Two hours drive out of Sydney where I live a shocking murder took place some five years ago.A married woman with four children murdered her husband,skinned him,cooked and ate him.
She fed him to the children and herself.
Just recently,she appealed her sentence in the appeals court here in Sydney, and tried to have the 28 yr sentence reduced.Her defence attorneys argued that this crime, "Does Not Fall into the worst category" After two days of arguments, she failed in her bid thank goodness.
What I can't work out is,in my 62 yrs I can't think of a worse category.If there is I sure haven't heard of one
What were her attorneys thinking of???? I'm baffled.

Hi Darthy,
Did not think of that.How on earth did the defence
think that this ploy would be successful? Then again,as you
say they are getting fame and fortune regardless of the
outcome.Have to agree with you,and thanks for your thoughts.

I think a worse crime would be kidnapping, extended torture, THEN cannibalism..... :thumbsup:

If something like happens in some remote jungle,although
hard to fathom,you accept that this is primitive and maybe
part of their culture.
When this happens in a civilised society, and right on your
backdoor,makes one sit up and take notice.

Hi HM.
And why not kidnapping, extended torture and eat parts of the body keeping it alive and eating them in front of the victim!!! :thumbsup:
Excuse me this post, DTSM, but I could not control myself with HM's post.
Regards,
Darthy

I think that sexual rape and murder is worst.

Hello Ryan,
Thanks for responding, and I respect your view.
I believe making a comparison between the two,while they are
both shocking,are not in the same league.That's only my view.
Another thing that worries me, is the more the media headline
this,the more likely there is a chance of a copycat crime like
in the schools in the USA.My view is that with crimes of this nature,
the news coverage should be kept to a minimum.After all, the
media runs with these stories only to make as much monetary
gain as possible,without really careing for the victims or those
left behind.

all are pretty disturbing, cannibalism is just messed up. i know there was a case in germany about a guy who canibalized (i do not think i can go into the most messed up part of this story) but appearently he had postesd this message on a forum
„Suche gut gebauten 18-30jährigen zum Schlachten“
Der Metzgermeister
which translates to english (i think this is correct, im not awesome at translation)
but
"looking for a well built 18 - 30 year old to be sluaghtered
-The master butcher-"
in short he met some guy who he cut somethings off and they bothh ate and (im totally grossed at this i cant even say half of it), in short he tried to get his sentance reduced last year i believe cuz he said it was becuase the guy wanted to die.
either way wow......

You may have misunderstood. I think that rape crimes that turn into murders are the worst. I wasn't really comparing the two, just saying that when they both happen it is really terrible.

Hello again Ryan,
Agree with you completely,and I think all crimes
against a fellow human being are shocking.The only possible crime
that comes to mind, that is more horrific, are the ones that involve
innocent children, which are caught up in these sick peoples crimes.
Reading of crimes involving children make me sick in the stomach.
Their innocence is stolen by these creeps.

Hey guys, I read the opening topic and am soooo disgusted right now. How gross! I read the rest of the replies and just wanted to add my two cents. In some ways this was a crime against those children as well, can you imagine finding out that YOUR MOM killed YOUR DAD and then YOU ATE HIM? OMG Thats just horrible! I've always believed in an eye for an eye but, I guess the only right thing here would be for her to die as well. I can't imagine her or any lawyer worth his weight even suggesting an early release. OMG!

It's a fact of life, that the ones left behind suffer as well.
I did not hear what happened to the four children.I can
only hope they are not separated,and some friends or
relatives took them in to care for them.To be forced into
foster care and separated, would only add to their misery
I would imagine.Only a professional would be able to say
what lasting impact this tragedy would have on their minds
in future life.To lose both your parents,at such a young
age, to me would be a nightmare.

Right now there is a trial going on for what most of us simply refer to as the "Robert Pickton' trial - mainly because we can only cringe thinking about what this man has done. And although we are trying to deliberately miss all the gory details, it's been virtually impossible - even the little kids in Grade school are mentioning the most ghastly things.

It's only my personal opinion but since there is little doubt he did exactly the horrible things he's been accused of, once the projected year long trial comes to an end and he is firmly convicted, I would not wish him to lanquish in jail for even a day.

Children, parents, family and friends of the victims have been destroyed - and I doubt very much if this man's sister is feeling any too happy about him either. Although I don't know of course, I try to imagine what it must be like to be his defense attorneys - glad I'm not one of them.

We put down 'rabid animals' - what is truly so wrong about putting down a 'rabid human' with no chance of rehab ever working and you has not retained the right to keep inhaling on a regular basis.

Sorry about ranting here but truly, although I don't step on bugs, beasts on two legs do walk amoung us.
Never let your computer realize you are in a hurry or just typing the last few words of a vital document.

While outer events might make one happy or sad, happiness itself is entirely internal, and at all times completely within one's power.

Murder and canniblism? Bad crimes sure. But I think a far worse crime is wearing a spotted shirt with stripped pants. Now, That's a CRIME!!!
I thought I was wrong once, but I was mistaken.
