[Update 2/17/2015: The videos previously posted (and the associated channel) have all been taken down from Youtube. So I’ll post up what other relevant videos I’m able to find but don’t currently have time to review them all and so can’t verify if they’re the same as the originals posted previously.]
1.) Joseph E Duncan III — Child Molester and Murderer:
2.) Fred and Rosemary West — 25 Cromwell Street Serial Rapists and Killers:
Those two were a sick fucking duo.
3.) Charles Ray Hatcher — child molester, rapist and serial killer:
This one I am unable to find a video on, but I recall reading a book about him over a decade ago. The most extensive information I am able to find on the man currently is available on wikipedia.
In the case of Charles Ray Hatcher we see the man was in and out of prisons and mental institutions, and each time he was released he went back to raping children and men across several states, including Missouri, Nebraska, Iowa, and California. He even raped and killed a fellow inmate during one of his spells locked-up, and yet wasn’t convicted for that due to there being too little evidence, and that was way back early on in his criminal career.
What’s always stayed in my mind about this particular criminal was how in one instance he was actually caught in the act beating and sodomizing a six-year-old boy he’d abducted and taken out into the woods, AND YET, though he was charged he was later paroled (once again!) and set free to rape and kill more boys! That went on and on and on with this guy, from between approximately 1960 to the early ’80s. Incredible.
4.) John Duffy and David Mulcahy — The Railway Rapists (murderous duo):
5.) Kenneth Allen McDuff – The Broomstick Murderer:
McDuff’s case demonstrates a few points I like to hit upon when discussing our justice system and criminal behavior of this nature. For starters, it’s common for serial killers to hone their “craft” on victims who are less likely to draw as much public outcry, like lesser knowns, prostitutes and runaways. Another important feature in this case that I see over and over again when learning about violent offenders is how common it is for them to be paroled or to receive lesser sentences than they deserve, with prison overcrowding being the typical excuse given.
Isn’t it interesting that drug-sellers can get the book thrown at them and face incredibly lengthy sentences, yet when it comes to lightening the load of the prison population it’s rapists and violent offenders who wind up being released? Do you imagine that’s an accident or an oversight when records show this happening again and again and again? (Since profit motives seems to tie into everything these days, I wonder why there’d be more incentive to keep drug offenders locked up while letting violent offenders go free. Is it perhaps because they are so likely to re-offend and through doing so wind up requiring a great deal of police resources to investigate their crimes, which in turn provides an excuse to beef up police and sheriffs’ departments? That’s job creation, cynical as it may sound, and that’s the problem with relying on the State to create jobs for us — those are the sorts of jobs a government has to offer. This is meant as a thought exercise, pondering on the role economic incentives might play in what otherwise appears to be sheer incompetence on the part of law enforcement branches.)
And we could go on and on in looking up modern-day monsters among us, but that’s enough for one night.
