The ‘Subterranean Rapist’ and His New Friend

 

George Gascón, the Los Angeles District Attorney, has some new friends. Rapists, child rapists, and potential cop killers will love this guy.

The victims of these criminals will be left to fend for themselves. Closure never really comes for the victims of these crimes, but they should not have to face a parole board alone to confront and explain why their assailant should not be paroled.

James Edward Hughes, the convicted serial rapist known as the “Subterranean Rapist,” terrorized Los Angeles 40 years ago.

Given his moniker for using underground parking garages to rape some of his 50 victims, Hughes was convicted and sentenced to 94 years in prison.

Since that conviction, he has been denied parole twice and has a new parole hearing coming up in April.

During that parole hearing, the victims will have to face the parole board alone, because prosecutors have been ordered not to attend by District Attorney George Gascón.

But wait, there’s more.

Ricochet’s Code of Conduct has overcome the first whisky of Happy Hour, but I still have time to remedy that.

    The Left is deranged and evil. Satan is having a field day.

    Edit:

    That is a horrific article. How many of these Soros-backed clowns are out there?

    People who decapitate children should be tossed into cages from which they can only leave feet first. At a minimum.

    And this is the # 1 reason I am for the death penalty. If you kill them, they cannot get out later. 

    It is also a pity I no longer have any faith in the judicial process.

    It depends.  The ones who committed murder should get the death penalty.  The subterranean rapist should get life.  If you give death penalty for rape, you’ve just incentivized killing the victim so they can’t ID you later.  A lot of those 50 garage rapes might have been murders.  

    The one who killed the kids makes me wish “cruel and unusual” punishment was an option.  Certain people deserve all the punishment possible.

    There was a piece about this “Progressive Prosecutor Project” in Commentary this …summer? Spring? I will have to look it up.

    A lot. This is an area where the left is far better than the right. Our donors, and our rich guys spend millions on a Ted Cruz or endowing AEI chairs to write white papers. Our activists generate movements like the Tea Party, which break apart into little PACs, and eventually end up fronts for Lincoln Project like fundraisers to suck cash off of guillible boomers. 

    Soros though, he puts his money into local DA races. A few million for the LA County DA position, where DA races never see that kind of money. And they do it with State Secretary of States, and local school boards. We get giddy about Tucker Carlson monologues. They put their Tucker Carlson’s in local postitions of power.

    And now, maybe the release of a Manson killer:

    I was mistaken. The article in Commentary was from March of 2020, not summer: The Progressive Prosecutor Project – Andrew McCarthy, Commentary Magazine
