The monsters among us are worse than animals. They are a depraved lot whose frustration and resentment leads to such horrific acts. The violence that they inflict on others without any remorse or fear of consequences is scary.
What is worse is that our protectors - the police and judicial system - seem to be ineffective. The criminals don’t fear the law. Some of them are caught and convicted for certain case, and are released due to loopholes in the law and are out on the streets repeating the crime.
I wonder what is that makes these criminals the way they are. Are they human at all? How do they hurt little children? Doesn’t the cry of their victims make their hand waver, the shrieks of victims pierce their souls, and their tormented faces haunt their dreams.
How do they look at themselves in the mirror after committing such crimes? How do they live with themselves? If the answer is that they are not normal, then they belong in a mental institution not a jail.
Let’s hope that the monsters we heard about in the fairy tales remain in the stories and not become a permanent reality.
