TIMES SQUARE JOEL (scumbag child killer Steinberg walks among us)
NY POST ^ | 8/19/04 | DAN MANGAN

Posted on 08/19/2004 5:06:41 PM PDT by Liz

Child killer Joel Steinberg has been living in a Times Square hotel ever since the sadistic sicko's big mouth got him kicked out of a Harlem halfway house, The Post has learned.

The camera-shy Steinberg only rarely emerges from his $110-per-night room at the Hotel Carter on West 43rd Street, where he has been holed up for nearly two weeks.

But Steinberg, 63, left the hotel yesterday morning to visit his parole officer.

During the 10-block walk, he chatted up a photographer who snapped his picture, saying the media has for years inaccurately and unfairly reported his brutal killing of his 6-year-old, illegally adopted daughter, Lisa, in 1987.

He also said his parole officer has been telling him to keep a low public profile, arguing that the more often that Steinberg is recognized on the streets of New York, the more likely it will be that he will be harassed or worse.

The night before, on Tuesday, Steinberg snarled at another shutterbug who took his photo as the fiend left the West 19th Street offices of the Fortune Society, a group that helps ex-convicts re-enter society.

After his June 30 release from prison, where he served more than 16 years in prison for killing Lisa, Steinberg lived for about five weeks at the Fortune Academy on West 140th Street, a residence for ex-cons.

His presence at the halfway house drew the wrath of neighbors who objected to the pariah living in their midst. Steinberg kept a low profile for most of his stay there, and was leery of photographers when he stepped outside in a secluded area of the property to smoke.

Steinberg sans mustache

"Don't take my picture," snapped Steinberg, who has shaved off the mustache he sported when getting out of prison. Steinberg is not registered in his own name at the Carter, where his room overlooks the New York Times building. Earlier this month, in an interview with New York magazine, Steinberg said, "I was a good father," and denied he was responsible for Lisa's death. Fortune Society officials then ordered Steinberg to vacate the residence, saying he had broken a promise to not speak to the media. He then went to the Carter.

People who serve their time and are then released should be let alone. The cynical NY Post is just using Steinberg's notoriety to try to raise circulation.

IF someone kills a kid, sir, he shouldn't be let out again.
He should be killed himself. Your sympathy for him is disgusting.

In NYC that's a rank flophouse, right?

That works out to over $3400 a month. Who's paying the bill for this hotel?

My problem with the tabloid focus on Steinberg is that everybody already knows who he is, and what he looks like, so he doesn't really pose a threat to others. Meanwhile, there are criminals just as bad, if not worse, who get released into the community every day, and there's no stories on them. They're the ones who are the real danger to society.

"Your sympathy for him is disgusting."

No symppathy here for Steinberg; just contempt for the cynical newspapers who use people for profit, and for people like you who think the law is for everyone else, but not themselves.

It's not sympathy for Steinberg. It's digust with the system, and I agree with doug. If we are to have a system where the people who have been imprisoned ONCE are on a permanent watch list, then the objective of the police will be to get everyone on that watchlist, regardless of their actual deviancy. This is not to say that Steinberg ISN'T a likely recidivist, but frankly, if he is, why the HELL was he sentenced lightly and let out quickly?

The objective here should not be to make sure people who molest or kill kids on a permanent watch, which is what the paper is doing. The objective should be to keep them locked up if they are truly likely to commit the same or similar crimes again.

Yeah, true. I'm waiting for, and will pounce, on the Streident story.

I also daydream of posting "Bill Clinton in Harlem Rape Try." I see about 12,000 FReeper responses on that thread.

Your accusation is unfounded. Point to a place I said the law wasn't for me. Find me a time I broke the law and asked not to be punished for it. You will not find either. So spread your contempt wherever you like, sir. I wouldn't expect anything more from someone who dislikes newspapers more then child-killers.

Your sympathy for that dirtball is disgusting. My sincere hope is that he will be brought to final justice either in this life or the next. I hope that he was someones bitch in prison and that he faced severe abuse.

He not only walks among us but he is prospering.

The poor child died a terrible death at his hands. She died alone and afraid.

This sorry sob is living high on the hog.

Who said that crime does not pay?

Sympathy?

You got that wrong, newbie, very wrong.

Better know what you're talking about before you post here.

This article was part of a series I posted on this scumbag.

I'll give you the benefit of the doubt this one time.
