They’re Predators—Not Just “Offenders”

John Albert Gardner III

The shocking rape and murder of 17-year old Chelsea King by a convicted sexual predator in northern San Diego County could have been prevented if only the judicial system and law enforcement had done their job.

First of all, let’s set the record straight. The alleged perpetrator, John Albert Gardner III, is not just a sexual offender—he is a sexual predator! The morally bankrupt mass media is so intent on being politically correct that they are willing to deceive and mislead the public. It’s like calling an illegal immigrant an undocumented worker. The reason they don’t have documents is because they’re here illegally!

Just as evil—if not more so—are the prosecutors and judges in this country. The prosecutors want to look good by obtaining a conviction, so they enter into a  plea bargain agreement with the perpetrator’s lawyers, getting the perpetrator to plead guilty in exchange for a reduced (and often ridiculously short) sentence. And the judges have become so obsessed with the “rights” of the criminal, that they are willing to overlook the rights of the victim!

And where was law enforcement? Why didn’t they advise the community that there was a sexual predator in their midst? Why did they wait until a girl was raped and murdered before taking action?

Let us hope that this psychopath John Albert Gardner III receives a speedy trial and is given the death penalty he so rightly deserves. And let us hope that our courts, with their Rose Bird mentality, don’t allow Gardner to thwart justice and languish in prison for 40+ years like Rodney Alcala before the sentence is carried out.
