Scumbag Rat

June 11, 2008 @ 08:28

I refuse to put the Paul Bernardo video on my website because having the putrid bastard come to life on something I’m responsible for is totally out of the question.

But I will admit I watched it, and I’m sure I feel like a lot of you. I’d like to crawl through the screen and grab the son of bitch by the throat and squeeze the slimy life out of him.

But that wouldn’t be human. Or would it?

According to Paul Benardo, regardless of our actions, we’re all human beings.

It was the worst part of the video for me. The part when he says “I realize I’m giving you guys a hard time, but I’m a human being.” And then rambles on about something else.

It’s sickening, because it’s so delusional.

You can see that Bernardo is enjoying every minute of the interview and he carries on like he’s a legitimate member of the society. He refers to mistakes of the past, almost like he thinks he should be forgiven all these years later.

It was another moment in the spotlight for Bernardo and he soaked it up while toying with a shockingly awkward detective.

And here’s another part that bothers me.

Recurring evidence keeps referring to Bernardo’s favourite radio station, CFNY 102.1.

I worked there at the time, in fact the Humble and Fred Show was in its infancy back then, and it bothers me to think that maybe, must maybe we gave this prick one moment of pleasure. It creeps me out.

Needless to say, the concern pales when compared to the pain and suffering that the French and Mahaffey families went through, and are still going through, but it gives you an idea of how far reaching the effects of such a monster can be.

I’m still not sure what the purpose of releasing this video was, because all it does is provide some creepy entertainment for those not directly affected, but it’s got to be excruciating for the parents of the victims.

They’ve had to re-live this nightmare too many times.

I could not even get through the video. I was so disgusted with him and his games, his cat and mouse symantics that was sick. My heart still and yet again goes out to all the victim this monster has effected. May he rot right where he is because even if he did man up to what he did and not try to put it off onto someone else, anything less then being put in the general population is not sentence enough.

Freddiep you bring up a good point
the French and Mahaffey family's

How are they are supposed to get past this horrific point in there life if every time its a slow media day it gets thrown in there face
there was absolutly no reason at all for the Canadian Media to go to court to get this video released except for the hope of a shock factor
I do believe that the Canadian media owes the French and Mahaffey family a huge apology for there disgusting display of greed and selfishness

What sickens me is the news media drooling over this little tidbit, professing that it serves the public good to have it released.

Was anything new revealed?

Don't think so.

Did it serve the public good?

In a pathetic, morbid fascination, voyeuristic kind of a way is suppose it did.

Now lets get back to some real news... I understand Brittany has gained some weight....story at 11...

I absolutely WILL watch the CCTV video of this prick being shanked in the common area.

No, wait...Corrections Canada will refuse its release because of privacy issues.

Now let's go to Cheryl Hickey and find out what's coming up tonight on ET Canada!

If Bernardo had hired image consultants instead of lawyers he'd be out by now.

Sure what he did was heinous, but it's media hype that will keep him behind bars when it's time for parole, not justice.

IG has it right on the money Fred.

If we don't keep these things fresh in the mind of society oh how soon they forget. Do you think many people remember that Karla is living and breathing somewhere in this country? Not a peep is said anymore because it's off our radar screens

Should we stop showing film from WW2 in Nazi Germany because it's too gruesome ? By doing so we simply let the memory of the victims die.

Everyone should have to watch Bernardo, so it sinks in their head...in a lasting impression..that he was a psychopath.

Ignoring reality NEVER made it go away.

Hopefully it's more than hype that keeps Bernardo-Teale in the can for life.
And the less hype the better about his former skank Karla.
When someone suggested Bernardo might have killed Elizabeth Bain I could smell more than a rat there.
We all get on with our lives except the victims families. It's never the same for them.

The interesting thing about all this Bernardo stuff is that no one seems to remember that the police really trashed this investigation. It goes back years, but I remember the last person that Bains was seen with was a blonde man.

Here's some reading for you all

Fred,

You worked in media. So you know the purpose was ratings.

You didn't post the video, but you posted his picture and gave him even more attention. I don't get it.

He made those cops look like fools, and the more we talk about him, the more he laughs about it.

Wayne Rooney's relationship was under strenuous pressure last night after it was discovered that he'd some relationships with a hooker though his wife was currently pregnant. I'm hoping she divorces him like Tiger wood's wife did, Idiot. adela

If you are unusual handbags might be an ethnic feel with love, to them from a variety of materials, painting on silk or wool woven bamboo or wicker, you are probably in their creative approach to dress. Maybe you have artistic inclinations and working with people or in a creative environment.

hi,
what is your opinion for Wayne Rooney
Will he really leave Old Trafford?
because there is now speculation that the 24 year-old could be on the move. It really wouldn't surprise me if he did move on after all that's gone on. However it would need to be abroad if he was to avoid the British media.
