“Nobody has a right to tell this rapist where he can or can’t live.”
Unfortunately for the citizens of Vancouver’s Surrey suburb, who are protesting the convicted serial rapist who has decided to settle in their community after serving twenty years, that statement (by one deluded but curiously anonymous commenter on a local blog forum) is technically accurate. Concerned citizens can only make life extremely inconvenient for this monster – enough that he’ll eventually be forced to move on.
Then the next community will have to deal with him, and the process will repeat itself ad infinitum until Paul Douglas Callow does the honorable thing – hopefully cutting his own balls off and bleeding to death.
But Callow is receiving some unexpected help from Vancouver’s concerned citizens. Writes one misguided Vancouverite: “I’m on Callow’s side. We can’t expect that 20 yrs won’t have an impact on someone. He was never into kids, so the parents could lay off. Ok, keep yr wits about you if you will, but forgiveness is good for everyone.”
Screw forgiveness. It’s too bad that our dangerous offender legislation doesn’t apply to this scumbag, so we could lock him up for the rest of his miserable existence.
But that doesn’t mean we’re under any obligation to let Callow live a normal life. He certainly had no such consideration for his victims.
