Dante Wyndham Arthurs pleads guilty: Why bother with rehab?Mikey 47 comments
On Monday the 19th September 2007 Dante Wyndham Arthurs pleaded guilty to the charges of unlawfully detainment and subsequent murder of Sofia Rodriguez-Urrutia-Shu at the Canningvale Shopping Centre in Perth, Western Australia last year.
The charge of willful murder has been dropped as prosecutors can not prove Arthurs intended to murder the young girl.
Incidentally, in 2003 Arthurs was caught indecently dealing with another eight-year-old girl in Canningvale, but the charges were dropped because of the way police handled the interview. Said Arthurs' mother:
"I think it was in him, I don't think you can change someone like that. I mean who does that? I can't fathom it"
Time for a reality check. People like Dante Wyndham Arthurs don't have a chance at being rehabilitated or even deserve the opportunity for that matter, and judging by his mothers' comments that may be true. Best case scenario for Arthurs, he does his time (assuming he survives), gets released, and spends the rest of his life a loser on welfare because no-one in their right mind will give him a job. Then he moves from suburb to suburb to suburb because as soon as parents find out there is a convicted child murderer living nearby they put pressure on the authorities to force him to move. Of course they can't force him to move because 'he has done his time' and so police are pressured to routinely check in on him and patrol the neighborhoods to give the appearance they care.
So why should taxpayers spend another $100,000+ per year for the 15 years he could serve plus benefits when he is released? I don't want people like Arthurs living near me and my family or any of my friends, so here is a better idea.
Just do away with him, I am not fussed which way, just as long as he stops breathing; and split the $1.5 Million between Sofia's and his previous victims family.
I won't lose any sleep. In fact I think we would all sleep better.
