The Injustice System Breeding Repeat Criminals, In Turn Calling It Mercy – Victims Once Again Overlooked
“It is an insult to offer mercy to the unrepentant.”
If there is one thing that I hate, and I mean that I hate, it is injustice.
The injustices taking place in this country are unprecedented and that in so many ways.
We have Hollywood, the mainstream media’s television programing, and video games at every step teaching the American people how to commit the crimes of murder, rape, fornication, adultery, theft, lying, and drug dealing. Yet, here we have the supreme court of the United States declaring that this is free speech, it is not! Liberty is the right to do what the law permits and every one of the above stated sins are violations of American law (Luke 7:35).
It has been rightly stated:
“Where there is darkness crimes will be committed. The guilty one is not merely he who commits the crime but he who caused the darkness.” —Victor Hugo
We have an injustice system in America in which instead of condemning the wicked and justifying the righteous (Deuteronomy 25:1), they justify the wicked and condemn the innocent (Proverbs 17:15).
This corrupt system of injustice that disregards God’s law (Mark 7:13), which brings about resolve in deterring crime (Isaiah 51:4), actually promotes and encourages a 3 strike system, encouraging the criminals to swing away before they are dealt with lawfully. Even after the strikes are taken, they are still granted what they call more mercy, which, in fact, is not mercy but a system which breeds criminals and repeat criminals that ends in attacking the innocent. This is injustice!
Let me share with you the story of 20-year-old college junior Sierah Joughin.
Sierah was last seen riding her bike with her long- time boyfriend Josh.
On the evening of July 19, 2016, after the two parted Sierah did not make it home. After 4 hours of searching, they called the police. Around midnight, a deputy discovered a motorcycle in a corn field a half of a mile away from Sierah’s home. The police concluded that she had been abducted.
Detectives started to look into the local violent offenders and sex offenders files (This is a list of violent sex offenders who have been released back out onto the streets making the innocent a prey).
They came across convicted felon James Worley. Officers went to Worley’s home, where looking around at his property, investigators found a hay filled crate full of a woman’s clothes. They found some under pants with blood on them.
The police then believed that they were on the right path dealing with the right person and then arrested this repeat criminal. As they continued to search out his property, they found more disturbing items. Three days after Sierah’s disappearance, her remains were found by a local farmer walking on his property. Prosecutors believe that Worley knocked out Sierah by hitting her with a motorcycle helmet, brought her to his property where he then sexually assaulted her and then killed her. Sierah’s DNA was found in Worley’s truck and barn.
Worley was convicted of murder and abduction and sentenced to the death penalty. He was then granted a stay of execution after an appeal in 2018.
In conclusion: Instead of obeying the Lord in dealing with this criminal “Life for life” (Deuteronomy 19:21), he is granted a stay of execution (The courts version of mercy; Proverbs 12:10) while the victim is completely overlooked. Guess who gets to pay for all of this in the 64 billion dollar a year injustice system? You (Numbers 32:23)!
The good news is, and I am being indignantly sarcastic, the state of Ohio enacted something called “Sierah’s Law,” which at the end of the day, is just as worthless and ineffective as these soft judges that produced these hardened criminals.
