what a horrible ordeal. The only good thing about it, is that she managed to survive, and after no doubt years of therapy, as managed to grow up to be a successful, happy woman, despite of the past trauma.

Libs, please just one this issue, please allow us to exterminate pedos and child rapists? There is absolutely no reason to believe rehabilitation works.

After this -Roman Polanski comes in at a distinct 2nd. However sharing a cell with this maniac will do Polanski some good.

IMHO this guys punishment should be whatever Ms. Smart's family feels like meting out. And if that follows skip's advice we will be sure that the creep will never do it again. Nothing sad about that.

From the evidence - it seems that this girl has been immensely brave. Im interested to try to work out ways that she - (or anyone who ever finds themselves trapped in tight corners like this situation) - might find ways to communicate their difficulties, without exacerbating the situation. Something along the lines of the guys in those prison camp photographs taken by Nazis to demonstrate all was well for the prisoners, when it was not. I suppose statements that are very obviously wrong to anyone who might suspect that all was not well - but which the abductor would not understand, or some kind of gesture.... there must be something.

hmmm - I just thought of something - what if there was an international sign, a facial gesture, or a hand gesture - something like international road signs, that might be read and understood by anyone. It might be very very small - but specific - so that the abductor did not notice it being communicated. Then if its taught in schools - or is generally available as useful information....

Wow just going to trial now? The guy should go to jail not the nut house. You can't tell me that kidnapping a girl and keeping her as a sex slave didn't register as wrong and illegal with the perp.

Badsey: Not even comparable to what Polanski is accused of doing 30 years ago. Not to mention that Polanski's victim says he doesn't belong in jail.

Smart replied: “Evil, wicked, manipulative, stinky, slimy, greedy, selfish, not spiritual, not religious, not close to God.”

Why would anybody want to rehabilitate this guy, liberal or not. Oh I see, it's just skipthesong taking a slap at liberals. Even liberals have limits. < :-)
