Kowtowing to Karla?



(Image: badgifs)


During my ritualistic daily examination of incoming traffic, I came upon a passage that I wanted to share on this blog:

"Perhaps she thinks it’s pointless to try to make up for her crimes when her crimes can’t be undone, and perhaps she just thinks of herself as a being who has done bad things, and has now moved on, and why can’t the world realize that and leave her alone. What she doesn’t get is what the world would be like for her and her children if everyone on Earth acted just like Karla Homolka."
Devil in the Flesh

The post referenced above appears to have been inspired by Paula Todd's e-book which -- like it or not -- has successfully re-introduced this fiercely unknowable creature to the masses at a time when the blonde kill-bot may have thought she was home free.

While some people have voiced the opinion that Karla Homolka should be left alone now that she has children of her own, I am unable to fully give myself to this moral undertaking.

To assume that her children are in danger's path now that the whole world knows where (and who) she is is to assume that the world is full of people like her, and it's not. Mercifully, the utter lack of respect for human life she exhibited is exceedingly rare. Moreover, is it wise that we continue kowtowing to a woman who is effectively using three innocent children as human shields?

Perhaps the reason why a dedicated group of observers have remained vigilant all these many years can best be described using the words of grieving mother Debbie Mahaffy:

"I can't imagine that she could walk out of prison and find anywhere to live in Canada where she doesn't look over her shoulder, or wonder... and I think that's a good thing."

  2. Apparently Homolka was seen recently shopping w/ 4 y/o daughter Aurelie at a Carrefour market in Destreland Mall, Baie Mahault Guadeloupe. She drives a small blue car & reportedly drove back to city of Les Abymes. Karla's address is still shown online, as are photos of her children under Love.You.Forever on BabyCenter. Her address:

    Leanne Teale Bordelais
    92 Residence Maimouna
    Les Abymes 97139. Guadeloupe

    1. I think the address you've posted is actually her business address, not her home address. The language centre she works for is located there. Totally shitty that Google Maps won't (yet) allow street view in this region.

  3. I wish someone in Guadeloupe would hand out flyers in French w/ photos, details of her crimes & whereabouts. The language barrier thing really works to her advantage so far.

    1. This is one of the many reasons why the Internet is AWESOME -- who can't hit the "translate" button? The technology has really come a long way, even in the last five years. I used to find the translations came out wonky, and pages rarely made sense but now I am much happier with the results :D
