'A parent's worst nightmare' 9-year-old girl sexually assaulted in her bedroom
San Francisco Chronicle ^ | 12/9/4 | Jaxon Van Derbeken

Posted on 12/09/2004 7:41:59 AM PST by SmithL

A convicted sex offender broke into a San Francisco home in the Ingleside district and raped a 9-year-old girl in her bedroom in an hourlong attack that ended when the girl's mother walked into the room, San Francisco police said.

The man, police say, fled on foot and was chased by the girl's father, who at one point struck him with a 2-by-4. The man continued fleeing through several backyards and was captured by police and identified as Roberto Gamero, 36, of San Francisco, police said.

"It's a parent's worst nightmare,'' said San Francisco police Deputy Chief Morris Tabak of Sunday's attack. "It's pretty horrific. All of us who are parents, it sends chills up your spine.''

Gamero, a prior sex offender who was on probation for an earlier domestic violence case in San Mateo County, . . .

I think SF has more stringent gun laws than Boston.

Could he even have a gun in his home?

I suppose the girl's father had nothing other than a 2x4.

I wonder how the law addresses using something more powerful than that in those circumstances. I would guess that the law would hold that that would be about all he could do under the law...if even that. He (the father) would be viewed as the aggressor.

In the U.K. he probably would have been crucified for using the 2x4.

"It's a parent's worst nightmare,''

nightmare? yes. worst? no. Worst is having a son/daughter murder another son/daughter.

sorry to nit-pick, but it (above statement) is a pet-peeve of mine

This needs a longer discussion, but you're right.

Human predators are easily identified, incurable, and time-delimited incarceration does not protect their future victims (nor the non-predators who share the prisons with them).

As soon as a human predator is identified, he should be killed (or isolated).

The panel who let this animal out on probation would be in court now facing jail time. This sick animal needs to be put down not let out on probation. What the hell is going on?

This is what we get for an 'anything goes' tittilation driven culture...kids are so sexualized today it is positively vile and a real abomination of our species.

Add to that a 24x7 delievery system satuated with off-the-scale, twisted pornography that the Internet pumps into our households (and slaps in our face like it or not) and we are really playing with sociopathic fire.

Wonder if we will wake up before we strip ourselves of all spiritual essence in the quest to gorge ourselves for all that is 'base'?

"...a prior sex offender who was on probation for an earlier domestic violence case ..."

Now here is the real problem. Once these animals exhibit this kind of behavior they should be locked away forever.

There is something here that I don't understand though. How does someone come into a private home unnoticed and manage to commit a crime like this and still go unnoticed.

I live in a rural area and never feel threatened. And, even though we don't feel threatened, the doors remain locked throughout the day and it would be impossible for someone to enter without making a lot of noise. Can't be too careful these days.

I agree. Often a predator can be identified at a very early age (7-12-14). And usually, they can't be rehabed. There was a discussion here once about killing such kids. Don't think I could live with that. But locked away forever doesn't bother me a bit.

Since the legal system fails to protect the people, every freeper should check with local Sheriff to locate sex offenders moving into their community.

Stay armed, ready, and vigilant.

"It's very isolated, from what we can tell," Tabak said.

I don't believe that one bit. They need to give this guy a choice -- cut his thing off and shove him in prison for the rest of his natural life with no chance of parole housed with the most dangerous gang in the California prison system. Or, just cut his thing off and let him bleed to death.

I don't think children under 12 are unreformable enough to kill them.

"Locked away forever" creates a number of problems which you should think through.

First, it's very expensive. There are probably 50 000-100 000 eligibles right now, and many of them are wily enough to be out, or in prison for only short stretches. Converting them all to life will cost a fortune.

Second, the non-predator prison population will suffer enormously as a result of your proposal. And you can't put them all in solitary, most men cannot tolerate 30 days of solitary, much less fifty years.

Thirdly, there is the practical problem of escape.

If you could design an isolation facility (a penal colony) which was escape-proof and capable of agriculture, so that our costs would be limited to guarding the wall, I could go for it.

But killing them right away wins hands down, in my book, because it's cheaper, safer, and better for the non-predator inamtes who we will still need to incarcerate.

Of course it's not a great comfort to her. But what do you think would be a great comfort to her? Any suggestions?

They caught the guy and he will be punished harshly while he serves his term (which hopefully will last his whole life). Maybe he'll get killed in prison. One can hope!!

Death would certainly be too kind for this scumbag. Let him live out his days getting gang raped and see how he likes being sexually abused. Just hope they lock him away for a long time so he can get passed around and around and around...

But if I could get my hands on this guy...
