Ten People Who Deserve to Be Tortured to Death
Before you call me sick and disturbed for writing this article, look at the list and tell me that you wouldn’t be tempted to beat these people to death yourself. Each one of them is alive today. I’m sure I could have easily come up with a hundred more, but these ones stuck out over the years. What they did is unforgivable, things so sick that not even Hell itself has enough pain to match what they brought into this world.
10 John and Linda Dollar
This couple was only sentenced to 15 years in prison for torturing five children in their care. The children told investigators the Dollars starved them, shocked them with electricity, pulled out their toenails with pliers, bound them with chains and strips of plastic and struck their feet with hammers. A 16-year-old boy weighed 59 pounds. Twin boys, age 14, weighed 36 and 38 pounds, the Sheriff’s Office said. This is not the only case like this. I’ve heard of several others, but any time it’s a tag-team of torture, I feel it’s worse. One sick, twisted individual I can understand to a certain degree, but two together is another story. What’s worse is, they’ll walk free one day.
Vigilante justice: Eye for an eye. Shock them, starve them and chain them up.
9 Michael John Devlin
Devlin is a convicted child molester currently serving 74 life sentences. On January 12, 2007, Devlin was charged with the abduction four days earlier of a 13-year-old, whom police found that day. Upon his discovery, officials found another missing teenage boy who disappeared on October 6, 2002, at age 11 in Richwoods, Missouri. The 2002 abductee lived with Devlin. He was separated from his family for four years and three months. Devlin was charged with four counts of producing child pornography and with two counts of transporting a minor across state lines to engage in sexual activity in both Arizona and Illinois.
Vigilante justice: Impalement.
8 Richard Allen Davis
As if kidnapping, raping and killing Polly Klass wasn’t enough, Davis wasn’t the least bit repentant and made a scene in court by flipping off Polly’s father and claiming that he was a molester. Fortunately, Davis is currently on death row, a decision the judge didn’t seem to balk at.
Vigilante justice: Seeing those middle fingers raised… I’d say dismemberment.
7 John Allen Muhammad
With his younger partner, Lee Boyd Malvo, Muhammad carried out the 2002 Beltway sniper attacks, killing 10 people. Muhammad and Malvo were arrested on October 24, 2002, following tips from alert citizens. Mohammad converted to Islam in 1987 and later changed his surname. Drawings by Malvo describe the murders as part of a “jihad” (Arabic for “struggle”).
Vigilante justice: Firing squad.
6 Josef Fritzl
Fritzel kept his daughter, Elizabeth, locked in a secret basement in Austria for 24 years with three of the seven children he fathered with her. Fritzel and his wife, Rosemarie, raised the other three living children. Regarding the three children who lived their lives entirely in the cellar, Kerstin Fritzel, 19, and her brothers Stefan, 18, and Felix, 5, have been alone in the cellar for so long that they developed their own type of communication via growls, grunts and animal like sounds. Elizabeth Fritzel had tried to teach them and let them have a normal life in the cellar.
Vigilante justice: Remember that movie Saw? Chain him up and give him a rusty saw.
5 Karla Homolka
The only one on this list who was set free after serving her time, Homolka is a convicted Canadian serial killer who attracted worldwide media attention when she was convicted of manslaughter in the rape-murders of two teenaged girls; her husband, Paul Bernardo, was convicted of their murders and admitted having raped numerous women. Homolka and Bernardo also were responsible for the rape and death of her sister Tammy. In return for her confession and testimony against her husband, she was given a plea bargain whereby she escaped the maximum penalty for her crimes. She pleaded guilty to manslaughter and served 12 years in prison. She may now possibly live in a publicly undisclosed location in the Antilles with her son. Someone, please find this woman and inflict vigilante justice on her. It is a disgrace and mockery of the judicial system that anyone can walk free after what she did. Death to her husband, as well.
Vigilante justice: Burning at the stake.
4 John Jamelske
Jamelsek is a serial rapist-kidnapper who, from 1988 to his capture in 2003, kidnapped a series of women and held them captive in a concrete bunker beneath the yard of his home in DeWitt, a suburb of Syracuse, New York. Jamelsek raped each of his victims and inflicted cigarette burns on them. After the discovery of the dungeon, police also found several video recorded entries with at least one woman on the tape. In the tapes, the viewer can see Jamelske dancing, singing, and also exercising with the woman. He prefaced each rape with a Bible study, in which after a review of a certain passage and discussion he would then begin to rape the victim.
Vigilante justice: The pear (look it up if you don’t know what it is), followed by the iron maiden.
3 Dennis Rader
Maybe if he acted a bit more off-the-wall in court, I would’ve given BTK a pass. Instead, he was articulate, smart and prepared. Some serial killers are so out-of-this-world nuts (like Charles Manson) that I’m not entirely sure that torturing them to death will really mean much. But Rader, who killed 10 people and taunted the police over the course of decades, proved that nothing short of sadistic torture equivalent to what he inflicted will be enough.
Vigilante justice: Drawing and quartering.
2 Gary Ridgeway
Throughout the 1980s and 1990s, the Green River Killer is believed to have murdered at least 48 women near Seattle and Tacoma in Washington State. Most of the murders took place during a two-and-a-half-year period in the early 1980s. Most of the victims were either prostitutes or teenage runaways picked up along Pacific Highway South (State Route 99) and strangled. Most of their bodies were dumped in and around the Green River in Washington. The bodies were often left in clusters, sometimes posed, usually nude. Ridgway would occasionally contaminate the dump sites with gum, cigarettes, and written materials that belonged to others to confuse the police.
Vigilante justice: The breaking wheel.
1 Osama bin Laden
Do I need to even explain what this guy did? Unfortunately, he is not scared of death, and will likely die by his own hand right before he is apprehended. But, if by some miracle, I get a hold of him first…
Vigilante justice: Turn him over to the Sisters from the Shawshank Redemption.
Notes: Why no Bernie Madoff? Here’s why. Yes, the man deserves to rot in hell, but let’s pretend that he never existed. There’s a high likelihood that much of the money invested with him would’ve been invested elsewhere, and much of those earnings would have been lost, anyway. The entire stock market might as well have been a Ponzi scheme considering its collapse as of late. So, Madoff, you’re off the hook for brutal torture. You can just rot in jail for the rest of your life.
Dishonorable mentions: John Evander Couey, a slow-witted loser who kidnapped, raped and buried alive 9-year-old Jessica Lunsford. Whoever killed JonBenet Ramsey. There are a few women in the DC area (Banita Jacks and Renee Bowman) who, in the past couple of years, have been charged with or convicted of killing their children in sick and twisted ways, but each one is so deranged I’m not entirely sure if the good old beat-to-death would serve much of a purpose.
There are many other people who deserve to be on this list. Sorry I had to pick only ten.
