Daniel Kovarbasich – This time the justice system worked…

31 Oct

Sometimes I moan and complain about the Justice System around the world, rapists getting 2 years, murderers getting 5 years probation etc. etc.
But, this time, they got it right. So right.

January 22, 2010, started off as a typical Friday for 16-year-old Daniel Kovarbasich. That morning, his father drove his mother to work, dropping off Daniel at the home of close family friend Duane Hurley, who was supposed to take Daniel to school.

Thirty minutes later, Duane was dead. Daniel had stabbed him 55 times. He was given the lesser sentence, charged with manslaughter and given 5years probation.

Why? Because it all started three years ago. Duane had started to molest Daniel, 3 years before.

Daniel snapped and stabbed him 55 times.

Daniel was 12 when 52-year-old Duane Hurley first approached him outside a local elementary school. Daniel was charmed by Duane’s dog, and when Duane returned a few days later asking if Daniel would watch the dog for a moment, he agreed. Five minutes later, Daniel says Duane returned and paid him $30 for his help.

A good quote by Oprah this evening was this, ‘The Boogie Man does not wear boogie man’s clothes’ … in other words, they will appear nice and normal. The truth is… Molesters/Sex Offenders are the man next door, the nice neighbour, a father, a son, a brother, an uncle… don’t leave your kids with anyone. Don’t trust anyone.

You are responsible for your kids.

Nails quevaal

AOL is reporting that a 50-year-old Sri Lankan woman who worked as a maid for a large family in Saudi Arabia for five months was allegedly tortured by some of the family members hammering nails into her body.

The woman, who flew back to Colombo, Sri Lanka, from Riyadh on Saturday night, was brought to the hospital by her concerned children Monday. X-rays showed there were 23 nails embedded in her body.

“Some of the nails were 2 inches long,” Dr. Prabath Gajadeera of Kamburupitiya Base Hospital told AOL News today. “Most of the nails were embedded in her arms and legs. She didn’t even realize how many were in there.”

How on earth can that happen?
