Monster Boy Repents

Well, twisted psycho monster boy, Paul Bernardo, is cleaning out his closet of more conscience-plaguing secrets and the media is acting as therapist. My question: Is it in the interest of the public that the media reports on this kind of shite? Is it in our interest as a society that the media gives a megaphone to a troll who should be locked away to rot forever without a peep or glimpse? We either need to flip the voltage switch on human lice like him or turn the page.

I don't believe that there should be movies made about this lunatic or his wife (no matter what Hollywood claims). However, I believe the media has a right to cover what this guy is saying through his lawyer.
If he is admitting to raping another 1 or 30 women, it should be known as it will offer some closure to the families and victims that still exist in Toronto, Ontario, and North Michigan.
I don't want to read about what he did to people but I want to read that his crimes have been accounted for and that prison will prevent him from doing anything else.

Peter- Let the authorities deal with accusations and confessions. They are the ones that need to investigate the claims. In their
self-titled "exclusive" story, the Star provided no closure for anybody.

It's a well known fact that serial killers love publicity. That moron is being gratified by all of this. And now his psycho slut ex-wife is also all over the front pages again. He made these "confessions" in November, when Karla was stealing the spotlight. Think that's a coincidence?

I agree with both of you, 100%. K-Dough's right that the media frenzy of these child killers is madness. But, the reason for that is the public are vampires when it comes to this stuff. They suck it up.

Peter is right in that the press do need to cover these latest developments. Police need a certain amount of investigative room, but this confession will help a great deal in healing the community of victims that continues to suffer.

By the way, you may be getting some further discussion from my T.O. Crime readers. I posted a link to this comment on my recent entry, "Sex Killer Follies". Do drop by.

The latest- police say they won't charge him with these offences.

This blurb from the Star illustrates my point:

Deputy Chief Tony Warr said Bernardo confessed about four months ago and after police went over the cases, they decided not to embark on a new investigation. “I am very mindful that, whenever this issue is raised, the effect on the victims is that they fell they are being victimized once again. I do not intend to do any interviews.”

Bernardo’s lawyer Tony Bryant said the confession was to “clear up some issues”.

Tim Danson, lawyer for Kristin French’s and Leslie Mahaffy’s families, said, “He’s a psychopath, and once a psychopath, always a psychopath. He’s probably getting some perverted thrill going through all this celebrity status.”

Danson added, “"He likes the attention because his life in jail is boring. Doing something like this is his way to break up the monotony of what is and will be his day-to-day life behind bars."

This story really does illustrate your point, and I do agree with Danson on this. Pauly doesn't want Karla to get all the attention, not while he's in his tiny shell of a home. But, if his confessions turn out to be true, they are a matter for public record. Clearing up these cases will go far in easing the lives of those involved. Further, I think it's interesting that Elizabeth Bain is not on the list...
