I don’t blame Austria for what Josef Fritzl did


But its punitive system, at least in the following example, is a joke, and not a funny one.

The father [Josef Fritzl] faces up to 15 years in prison if convicted on rape charges, the most grave of his alleged offenses. However, prosecutors are investigating whether he can be charged with “murder through failure to act” in connection with the infant’s death, a crime punishable by up to 20 years in prison. 


Really, what’s the point? Well, he likely doesn’t have many years left anyway. He’s in his early 70s, 73, if I’m not mistaken. I also feel sorry for his wife, who, by the accounts I’ve read and heard, was truly unaware of what happened. I just imagine the poor woman wanting to scratch her face in guilt and terror.

The only real justice, admittedly in the revenge sense of the word, would be for all of that family to tear the demon dad to shreds, but that would make them into monsters, or teach them lessons they shouldn’t be taught, but there’s no doubt he would deserve it.

Austria, increase the punishment for rape. 15 years for multiple charges of rape, especially ones that lead to forced births, is not enlightened and civilixed, it’s flat evil.
