Love all the judgement in this thread. None of you have ever talked to her or met her. She will be evaluated by counsellors and psychiatrists. They are the experts who decide who is and is not a risk to others. I think you should all be very grateful we live in a society where the state can't lock you up and throw away the key everytime a mob of people suspects you might commit a crime. Yes the occassional nut-bar slips through, but the consequences of giving the state too much power would be much worse.
Tell that to the family of the child or family member who is unfortunate to be the victim of someone like her and see if they agree with you. There is an opportunity to protect innocent members of society here and to ignore it should make those making the decisions culpable when (and if) something happens. Better yet, how 'bout Kayla Bourque come and live next door to you and your children, your pets..........maybe she could even live in your basement suite........
Why should an innocent party end up being tortured and/or murdered in order to ensure people like Kayla Bourque who has clearly illustrated that she is a danger to society be allowed even the tiniest of opportunities to commit the sado-sexual torture she fantasizes about or kill homeless people. She is flawed, dangerously and psychologically so and the safety of society should trump hers any day of the week. "Might" commit a crime? The odds are extremely high that she is going to....read her psych reports.
Are we going to pay someone to watch her 24/7 for the rest of her life while handcuffed to her? That is the only way they can ensure she doesn't violate the terms of her parole and it's conditions........what happens after her parole is up....who watches her then? The judge's words were that she 'could
' be on life long supervision.....there is NO
guarantee that she will be........and then what? It has already been said that the possibility of rehabbing someone like her is low...yet the powers that be want to turn her loose on an unsuspecting society.......
Those advocating no capital punishment always use the argument that there shouldn't be capital punishment in case one innocent person is put to death. Yet some of you want to put a known, diagnosed, walking time bomb back on the street to potentially take an innocent life.......... where are those innocent person's rights in all this?
