no punishment is too harsh for ‘House of Horrors’ animal

As more details are being revealed about Elisabeth Fritzl who was imprisoned in the Austrian ‘House of Horrors’ and had 7 children by her own father, I’m finding it very hard to believe that Elisabeth’s mother, Rosemarie, who lived just one floor above in the same house for 24 years, didn’t even have an inkling about what was going on in her very basement.

Don’t tell me she never thought to take a peek while her husband was out, even if she might’ve been deathly afraid of him being the authoritarian control freak that he is.

I mean, there are so many things she could’ve done – sought outside help, made a police report, done her own investigation, something. Of course, I can’t say I know enough about Rosemarie or the circumstances under which she was living so maybe I’m being unduly harsh on her here.

But one thing’s for sure, this man is a lunatic and probably both she and Elisabeth were too weak or thought it useless to fight back.

And frankly, a 15-year sentence is nothing considering what he’s done to his own flesh and blood without no remorse whatsoever day after day, child after child.

I mean, we’re talking about incest, rape, kidnapping, imprisonment, physical abuse, mental torture, possibly even murder and not just to one person but to two whole generations here, possibly more.

Gosh, he ought to be put away forever in solitary confinement in the darkest chambers and never be allowed to see the light of day to give him just a little taste of his own medicine.

In fact, no punishment is too harsh for this animal who’s done something so despicable to his own family for so long. What do you think?

    From my work in domestic abuse situations, it’s no surprise that it went on for so long. Victims are usually very susceptible to fear from their attacker, and will believe a lot of the empty threats that are thrown their way just to keep them quiet. It’s so very sad, but so very true. I just wish people in these situations knew that it’s OK to get help and talk about it, and that the “worst” won’t happen if they do. And yes, I think he should absolutely get a life sentence. But I’m not the judge.
