Let the Son of Sam ROT

David Lawrence
Written by David Lawrence



Son of Sam is again lobbying for release from prison. He says “I feel I am no risk, whatsoever.”


What Sam doesn’t understand is that whether he is a risk or not is irrelevant.  There are six people moldering in the ground since 1976 because of his cruelty. Where is their chance to be good people?


Sam says he regrets killing the six and wounding seven others.  What’s regret?  It’s an excuse for justifying your bad deeds.  It’s patting yourself on the back for being a human being who is capable of sadness.


Sam claims he’s done “a lot of good things.”  What about returning his corpses to being live human beings so that they might also have chances to do good things too?


That Sam is even being looked at for possible parole nauseates me. He has not begun to pay for his crimes.  His possible future good deeds are meaningless.


Let a goldfish swallow the key to his cell and then drown in the lack of justice in the world caused by killers.
