“Gun Death” Serial Killer

Now this is a VERY bizarre case!

At a hearing that reduced victims’ relatives to tears, the lurid photos were shown one by one in court as Col. Russell Williams, 47, pleaded guilty to murdering two women, sexually assaulting two others and committing dozens of break-ins in which he stole underwear from the bedrooms of girls as young as 11.

He faces an automatic sentence of life in prison with no possibility for parole for at least 25 years.

Wow, 2 Murders (BTW I had to do some digging, but one was a stabbing, the other was a beating. Odd that the paper felt no need to mention cause of death…) two sexual assaults, and 82 (EIGHTY-TWO!!!!!) break ins where the motive was to steal underwear, and take photographs of the bedrooms of young girls.

All this and he has a chance of walking free in 25 years, very comforting that the Canadian penal system thinks they can fix a monster like this in that time.

Also this is a little scary:

He was a square-jawed Canadian Air Force officer with a brilliant future, a man entrusted with flying prime ministers and Queen Elizabeth II.

He likely didn’t kill them because they weren’t his type. Nice?

Of course if any of you are shocked or disgusted by the details of this case, remember, Col Williams beat, stabbed, and raped his victims. These are not “Gun Deaths”, so they don’t count!

    25 years and he can get out? When did life stop meaning life?

    One of my friends (somewhat) jokingly says “A stoning every few generations would do wonders.” I can’t help but to agree in this case. Really. Jagged. Stones.

      Its why I’m in favor of the death penalty. First, as you noted “Life” doesn’t mean life in most states. In the states where it does, I don’t see it as “life” as much as “death by cage”. Add in that lifers are often housed with other inmates, and need to be tended by guards, staff, and medical personnel (all of which are put in danger by the violent nature of the prisoner) I find a humane death far better for the condemned, as well as society as a whole.

    He did not stab or beat anybody to death. He asphixiated the first one with duct tape on her nose. Second one he smashed her skull with a flashlight and then strangled her. So, you didn’t actually do any digging. Unless all you came upon was other incorrect sites like your own.

      If you cite some sources, I’ll link them.

      Not sure what qualifies as beating someone to death in your world, but your own comments seem to indicate he did beat someone to death.

      beat anybody to death. …Second one he smashed her skull with a flashlight

      Unless someone can smash a skull with a love tap, I think it qualifies as beating, eh?

    well, he’ll be 72. he might not be “fixed” by then, but hopefully not in physical condition to beat anyone to death any longer. on the one hand, i can see the argument that life should mean life, and i agree with it; on the other hand, i can also see an argument that life might mean until too decrepit to be any further risk and then the hell with it.

    on the gripping hand, if life really meant life that lockerbie bomber fuckhead might still be locked up where he belongs. so i’ll have to come down on that side, after all. and you know my argument on the death penalty, so no need to repeat it again.
