Everything has some silver lining.
Covid-19 finally carried out the death sentence with which British authorities were too busy to bother: notorious Yorkshire Ripper Peter Sutcliffe died today from the disease. Rather than link to the encomiums for Sutcliffe himself by “civil rights” attorney activists and depraved lovesick women — very often one and the same — here is an article paying proper tribute to Sutcliffe’s victims. How is it that the only real journalists now work at The Sun?
In fairness, Sutcliffe just tortured women to death, so he wasn’t wasn’t anything terrible like a “hate criminal,” according to Richard Smith, David Ralston, Chuck Efstration, Lt. Governor Geoff Duncan and all the other feckless Georgia Republicans (as well as too many feckless Georgia Democrats to list) who are still eagerly awaiting the right type of offender to pop the right type of victim. Or at least say something nasty in passing at someone. So they can finally pop the cherry, so to speak, on our spanking new hate crimes law, which like all other hate crime laws excludes victims of serial killers and serial rapists who target women, children, and other now-second-class life forms.
Also excluded as hate offenders are black males who announce they are setting out to murder random whites and then do so. Thanks, Chuck, David, Geoff, and the rest of you pathetic, prejudiced, spineless bastards.
Peter Sutcliff’s Known Victims: Torture-Rape-Killed, but Without Hate
To date, and this is by no means a complete list, here are some other non-hate crime serial rapist-killers of women and children claimed by Covid-19:
- Joseph S. Cordova
- Troy Ashmus
- Richard Stitely
- Eddie Lee Mosley Mosley killed dozens of women in South Florida and was suspected or identified in more than 100 more rapes. Nevertheless, he was released multiple times, including, more than once, on the grounds that he had a learning disability (just like my South Florida rapist). Mosley was so well-known in his neighborhood that his neighbors actually gave him the nickname “The Rape Man.” Well, at least they weren’t hate crimes. There are too many pictures to include his victims here, so you’ll have to take my word for their unambiguous status as cis-sexual women and his unambiguous “bias” for targeting females. Hundreds of them.
- Scott Thomas Erskine
- “Grim Sleeper” Lonnie D. Franklin Jr. Funny story: I actually lobbied to get Franklin charged with gender bias hate crime murder. The L.A. County Hate Crimes Unit merely mocked me. I couldn’t get anyone in the media, the DA’s office, elected officials, or this little lady called Kamala Harris, who was then California’s Attorney General, interested in the idea. What may have been Franklin’s first rape occurred in 1975, and he was “active” raping and killing unknown numbers of women in the Los Angeles Area until 2010. Upon his up-tenth capture, police found more than 1,000 photos of different beaten, unconscious, and bleeding women in his home, and his work as a sanitation employee gave him access to landfills to hide bodies, so he may be the most prolific serial rapist and rapist-murderer in history. Good thing he just picked women. And girls. Right, Kamala?
- Johnny Avila
- David Owen Brooks David Owen Brooks helped sexually torture and murder 28 men and boys, apparently also with no hatred in his heart nor bias selectivity in his victims, although his accomplice, Dean Corll, did torture Elmer Wayne Henley, the third non-hate crime killer in their boy’s club, to punish him for the one time he accidentally brought home a non-boy to torture and murder. Maybe Hillary Swank could get breast implants and play the one non-male victim of the Corll/Brooks/Henley killer ring. But hey, if the hate crimes industry says it ain’t bias selectivity, it ain’t bias selectivity. It’s just, I don’t know, coincidence that all their victims but one (who did survive) were young males, right Bill Nigut, Abe Foxman, and all the other liars at the Anti-Defamation League who extra-legislatively make up the rules for such things?
I don’t see any victim-selection gender bias hate crime here. Do you?
Of course, not everyone sees the deaths of prolific serial killers by Covid-19 on death row as just desserts (perhaps the only appropriate last meal ever served to any of these goons). The American Bar Association is very concerned about death row inmates being exposed to Covid-19 at higher rates than, say, the non-serial-killing public, although it isn’t clear that their “statistics” on this are in any way accurate, or even statistics. They make up for numerical inadequacy by comparing, astonishingly, deaths of death row residents by Covid-19 to deaths of death row residents by the death penalty itself, ignoring the fact that people not on death row, Covid-infected or not, don’t actually face death by death penalty.
Stop reading here if it makes your head hurt.
“The outbreak has killed at least twelve death row prisoners, which is more than the state has executed since 1993,” the ABA inconsolably whined. In fact, several of the men on death row who died of Covid-19 each killed more innocent people than all the people on death row who have died from Covid-19.
The ABA has no comment about that.
The ABA is, of course, not alone in bemoaning the horror of serial killers risking catching Covid-19 if they have to remain in prison. Not death row, but prison itself. The San Francisco Chronicle is berating California Governor Gavin Newsom for opposing the death penalty but not caring enough to provide special protections to death row inmates who might somehow catch Covid-19 while they’re locked up in solitary on death row.
Wait a minute. Aren’t they safer in solitary on death row?
Well, I’m no expert. The California First District Court of Appeal are apparently the epidemiological experts So they are ordering the state to release or transfer nearly half of the inmates of San Quentin, where the worst of the worst are held. That’s 1500 inmates. 21,000 California inmates have already been released from California prisons due to “risk of Covid-19.” Because, as we all know, criminals actually prolific enough to end up in prison in the first place are very, very respectful of state-imposed social-distancing rules.
Maybe except this guy. And hundreds of thousands more like him nationwide.
Eston D. Spain. He Certainly Knows Where his Penis Ends and Your Child’s Sex Organs Start. Anyway, Isn’t Covid-19 just a Respiratory Disease?
But this one takes the cake. I mean, I’m almost never surprised anymore. Not like having to go outside and dig out wood stumps until my hands are bloodied and my blood pressure comes down surprised. Remember Gary Ridgeway, the Green River Killer? That guy who confessed to killing 49 women? By a five to four vote, the Washington State Supreme Court narrowly — narrowly — rejected an appeal that would release not just Gary Ridgeway but serial killer Robert Yates, plus 11,715 other serious offenders, including 470 serving life without parole and 5,275 serving for serious crimes including murder, rape, and child molestation.
When asked how likely it was that Ridgeway, Yates, and 11,713 other serious offenders could be sprung, had one additional dolt on the Washington State Supreme Court ruled differently, Spokane Prosecutor Larry Haskell didn’t mince niceties. He said:
Based on what I read by the Attorney General, I would say there would have been special restrictions to ensure that didn’t happen, but the court never specifically addressed those so that would remain to be seen down the road,” he said. “I think you can say anything can happen. . .
“It was a five to four decision,” Haskell said. “Of course, the court can always take a subsequent filing if they chose to. If the restrictions continue, the longer they go, the more likely the court will hear another petition. I don’t believe anything has been foreclosed.”
With only 11 official serial sex murders, Robert Yates is a mere piker compared with Gary Ridgeway’s official head (and body) count of 49. Together, they’re low-ball legally responsible for 60 tortured and murdered women, EXACTLY none of whom have been “counted” as victims of hate, legally or extralegally (ie. official victim lists, Academy-Award-winning Hollywood movies, weepy celebrity balls, activist organization faked stats snuck into Department of Justice statistics, hate-crime curricula force-fed to schoolchildren, ADL crackdowns on speech led by Sasha Baron Cohen and Larry David. And so on).
Both of them may yet be released from prison to protect them from Covid-19. At least their sixty-plus victims were freed by them early from the earthly threat of death via Chi-com virus.
As I said, silver linings.
Some, Perhaps Not All, of Gary Ridgeway’s Non-Hate Crime Victims
Some, Perhaps Not All, of Robert Yates’ Non-Hate Crime Victims
Washington State Supreme Court
The Washington State Supreme Court members who voted to release serial killers Gary Ridgeway, Robert Yates, and 11,713 other sexual offenders, child molesters, murderers, and other serious offenders are: Robert Gonzalez, Sheryl Gordon McCloud, Mary Yu, and Raquel Montoya-Lewis.
The other five, as of this writing, are still nominally sane.

Yes, Tina, a sort of justice. And your post here is well written and passionate as always.
With all this leisure time, locked in the blue state wuwu veal pen, I am taking it upon myself to update my crime files which go back to the 80s. Who was finally convicted. Who’s dead. Who did they finally execute after decades. Who did they finally catch. (My focus has always been crimes against women and children). I have a huge set of files on California’s death row serial killer pets and, upon updating it, that’s when Our Gavin’s Release Them All gambit popped up showing that the flu was killing off some of the elderly death row worst of the worst. Most of the Famous Serial Killer Pets are in their Golden Years and have been going through their billions of really frivolous appeals for decades. So, I also did a post like this about covid taking out the trash, finally. What struck me- besides the absurdity of most of the appeals and that there’s a 90 year old on death row (David Carpenter, the “Trailside Killer”)- was the new set of sentencing and parole standards CA has graciously bestowed upon their Preciouses. When DNA finally catches up to a serial killer or serial rapist ( often one and the same), after decades of freedom, and they’re convicted at age 65 but committed their string of rape murders when they were under the age of 26, they’re considered a “youthful offender” and can be considered for parole earlier than their sentence warrants . There is also a new “elderly offender” parole special circumstance where, if they’re 60 and incarcerated for 25 years or more, instant parole consideration despite their sentences. Considering that there is a whole activist industry dedicated to emptying not just death rows but entire prisons, and appeals chip away at any actual death sentences, getting many thrown out on technicalities, it is now possible to be re-sentenced off death row and into life with parole and, sometimes, instant release. Quite a scam. There are currently several serial killers incarcerated in CA who were sentenced to only life with parole and have been in so long have real chances at release. I know many people are opposed to the death penalty, however, the idea that serial murderers , who have racked up double digits of mostly female victims, should never be freed strikes me as a no brainer in a civilized society dedicated to protecting the human rights and lives of everyone. Washington state and California had something of a cottage industry of lone guys killing scads of women- the highwater mark for this being the 80s and 90s. I never thought they’d catch Green River or EAR-ONS or the Grim Sleeper. Once caught , we could AT THE LEAST expect that these men would never see the outside of a prison cell. But this is not the case as states and liberal judges rush to find any excuse to free or save them in an heroic manner never deployed to rush and save the runaways, prostitutes, drug addicts, or women or children that tragically crossed their paths. The 30th of November was the anniversary of Ridgway’s arrest in 2001. They had his DNA a decade earlier and in 1983, the very height of his killing spree, the father of one of his victims brought the police right to his front door. Like the thrust to release the likes of Ridgway now, this speaks to the contempt held for the victims by the justice system. King’s county now pounces on any crime outside their jurisdiction Ridgway might have committed to keep their darling from the death penalty most of the families thought he deserved. They shipped him out to Colorado for some unknown reason even though part of his pleas deal is to help authorities find the bodies of his still missing victims locally. “I want to go back to Nov. 5, in fact probably a little shortly before that, when I heard about this [ serial killer Gary Ridgway’s plea deal, sparing him the death sentence] and I became very angry. I haven’t known that kind of anger in my life before. I didn’t know how to deal with it. Since that time, I’ve been able to process what all this anger is, and besides it being the obvious, the person who sold his soul for his deviancy, there is a secondary fallout that has affected our lives and caused great pain. I believe we’ve been sold by the prosecutor for not giving us the justice that we could expect. I believe also that he made the deal because of so many that were unknown. I have a very unpopular opinion. Sometimes unpopular opinions are the truth. I believe had the investigations gone right in the last 20 years, many of us would not be in this court today. I believe we still are victimized by some politically ambitious careers. The self-proclaimed heroes have put the victims and their families on a shelf. At our expense, they come forward.”

Dear Tina Trent, i recommended that you get in touch with the president of Usina de Justicia, Diana Cohen Agrest, she is bilingual in English and Spanish. Diana is the mother of Ezequiel, who in 2011 was murdered during an robbery. Diana Cohen Agrest: “The ghost of the coronavirus served to execute the plan to remove prisoners from prisons”. The president of Usina de Justicia celebrated the judgment of the Buenos Aires Supreme Court that revoked the collective habeas corpus that enabled home prisons. But is not the first time excuses are used to release serial killers; Kenneth McDuff was paroled when parole board members, facing severe crowding in Texas prisons, went on to kill again. Gilberto Antonio Chamba Jaramillo (born 1963) is an Ecuadorian serial killer, convicted of murdering nine people in Ecuador and Spain. Known as the “Monster of Machala,” he was convicted of several murders in south-west Ecuador, but was released under an amnesty, and moved to Spain where he committed a murder. He was sentenced to 45 years in prison in Spain on November 5, 2006. Of his ten victims, two were minors. Because of the testimony of a sex worker, one of the two women who survived his attack, criminal proceedings could be initiated against Chamba, which eventually led to his sentence of 16 years in prison, Ecuador and Spain ban for Law constitunial the death penalty and the life sentences. However, he served only 7 of these years, as he benefited from a law which lowered the sentences of well-behaved prisoners in half, as well as receiving another year due to the Great Jubilee, when he was given amnesty.
