WAAAAAYYYYYY too quick and painless. I’m thinking about a couple of things that would take a few days.
I can’t stop thinking about this one. That’s why I keep posting. All the standard words that you use when someone is so low, so scummy low that you have trouble describing him... all those words are too good for this guy who did this thing to an 8 month old girl.
The only thing I can hope for (besides hoping that the child recovers and someday is not paralyzed from the waist down) is that this thing, this walking nameless thing, has an indescribably horrible 30 or 40 years in prison. Hopefully the inmates there will think of the little girl every time they torture this thing to within an inch of its scumbag, disgusting life, but not kill it, keep it alive for more torture and more and more.
That’s the only thing I can hope for and if that makes me some kind of an armchair sadist, I’m sorry. I’m having a hard time thinking of that little baby and that what that worthless scumbag thing did to her.
I recall some of the things we learned from the VC when they caught one of our guys outside the wire after dark... things involving rats, really BIG rats, and fire and stakes to hold the prisoner still while the rats and fire were applied to delicate parts of his body...
Rats will gnaw through most anything to get away from fire and heat... and the prisoner takes a LONG time to die...
