I’d like to say thank you to Mac Bool Hassan.
It’s a posthumous nod of gratitude, a deserved tip of the hat for his favour to society.
He not only saved taxpayers the cost of his incarceration, but more importantly, insured he would never again prey upon defenseless children.
From the time she was seven, until her escape at fifteen, Hassan abused his little stepdaughter, physically and sexually…she’d be dragged by the hair, beaten and kicked, forced to submit to his sick demands.
Last month, this 50-year old pervert was found guilty, 13 counts of physical and sexual abuse…he’d also assaulted the girl’s half-brother.
Tuesday morning, Hassan was found hanging in his Don Mills home…he’d escaped sentencing that afternoon.
Unfortunately, the little girl he terrorized, now a young woman, has been victimized again.
She’s angry, and feels cheated.
“For five years I waited for justice and I wanted him to suffer justice in jail, to feel the pain that I felt,” she wept. “I was supposed to get closure and he took his life. I am in shock. I never expected this.”
While I understand how she feels, I also know, like most of you do, slugs like Hassan seldom get the jail time deserved…the punishment not fitting crime. Our definition of “justice” in this country is in desperate need of a makeover.
Mac Bool Hassan was a convicted monster…if only more like him were so accommodating.
