Women Offenders: A Recent Sample

Here is a short selection of recent crime stories featuring female offenders. All of these stories were in the press in the last month. These contain the most serious crimes imaginable: child rape, torture, extortion, gang-related murder, serial killing, cannibalism, it's all there. Yet I don't recall seeing these stories on the BBC or in the Guardian. The politically-corrected 'liberal' press censors itself very heavily. It doesn't want the public to think that women commit crimes. That is why it is important for us to highlight these stories.

Remember Josef Fritzl keeping his daughter in a cellar? In the nearby Czech republic, some women were holding boys in a cellar, torturing, killing and eating them (See below). Where was that on the mainstream media?

Young woman stabbed to death by female attacker
A woman has been stabbed to death by a female attacker in London in the latest stabbing to hit the capital. Dee Willis, 28, was stabbed in her upper body during the attack at around 11pm last night in south east London. She was taken to hospital but died shortly after midnight. A gang of up to 20 girls was seen in the area around the time of the attack, according to one eyewitness."

Female teacher admits sex with underage student
A former teacher has pleaded guilty to fleeing to Mexico with a 13-year-old student so she could have sex with him. The deal 26-year-old Kelsey Peterson struck with prosecutors means she'll likely face nearly six years in federal prison.
She pleaded guilty Wednesday to a reduced charge of transporting a minor across state lines for the purpose of sex.

Woman 'murdered mother-to-be and cut her full-term baby alive from her womb'
A crazed American woman cut open the womb of a pregnant mother to steal her baby and later tried to claim it was her own. Sisouvanh Synhavong, 23, bound and gagged her victim before using a craft knife to slice open her stomach. Araceli Camacho Gomez, who was two weeks away from giving birth, died from loss of blood after the gruesome attack. She was also stabbed multiple times in the chest.

Woman gets probation in underage sex case
A 39-year-old Louisville woman who had two children with an underage boy was sentenced this morning to 20 of years probation and ordered to not have any contact with her children until she successfully completes sex offender treatment. "I don't think there's any question that (if the gender roles were reversed) we'd be talking about a prison sentence here," said prosecutor Amy Okubo, who had argued for a tougher sentence

Mother jailed for 12 years after leaving her daughter, three, to starve to death.
The mother of a three-year-old girl who starved to death showed more concern for the family's pet dog. Tiffany Wright was left neglected and unloved to die alone locked in a squalid bedroom above the pub run by her mother and stepfather. Yesterday Sabrina Hirst, 22, was jailed for 12 years after admitting the manslaughter of her daughter. While Tiffany was dying upstairs, her mother was caught on CCTV in the pub expressing concern about one of her dogs not getting enough vitamins and not putting on weight."

Millionaire businesswoman gets 11 years for enslavement
A millionaire businesswoman who inflicted years of abuse on her two housekeepers held as virtual slaves in her suburban New York mansion has been jailed for 11 years. Varsha Sabhnani, 46, was convicted on 12 charges after her victims testified they were beaten with brooms and umbrellas, slashed with knives, and forced to climb stairs and take freezing showers as punishment. One victim was forced to eat dozens of chili peppers against her will, and then was forced to eat her own vomit when she could not keep the peppers down, prosecutors said.'

Female Teacher Convicted of Planting Threatening Notes Throughout School
'Susan Romanyszyn was convicted of 11 counts of leaving threatening messages in the hallways of Longstreth Elementary School in the fall, when she was a teacher there, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer. In October, 15 notes including the messages "You die today," "Bomb today" and "I have a weapon and a nife," were found at the school, The Morning Call reported. In addition, a fake bomb was found in a student's desk and nails were scattered in a faculty parking lot. Romanyszyn is under house arrest at least until her sentencing in a month. The crimes carry a maximum sentence of 73 years in jail.'

Woman Gets 10 Years for Kidnapping and Torturing her ex-boss
"A 'greedy and wicked' estate agent, who hoped to pocket a fortune kidnapping and torturing her former boss, was jailed for 10 years today. Ambreen Gul, 23, was so furious when she was fired that she recruited another sacked colleague and two other thugs to make her ex-boss pay. Having lured Waqas Malik to her flat, the unsuspecting businessman was kicked, punched and pistol whipped repeatedly. During seven hours of suffering one of his captors stood on his head, while another warned he had he would never see his family again unless he raised £200,000 ransom. He was told failure would result in the executions of both himself and his 13-year-old son."

Woman who killed 2 boyfriends found guilty
A woman who claimed she was an angel sent from God to punish pedophiles was convicted Friday of murdering two boyfriends by a jury that rejected her insanity defense. Sheila LaBarre, 49, was sentenced to life in prison without parole.

Czech women torture, kill and eat boys in cellar
"An eight year-old boy was skinned and his flesh fed to cannibal relatives after his mother kept him locked in a cellar, a court has heard. Evil Klara Mauerova - a member of a sinister religious cult - wept in court as she admitted torturing her son Ondrej and his ten year-old brother Jakub. The court heard how the family had sexually abused them and even made them cut themselves with knives. They said they were kept in cages or handcuffed to tables and made to stand in their own urine for days.

Ex-teacher charged in sex case; eight male victims identified

'Julie Pritchett, 34, is charged with two counts of second-degree sodomy and one count of second-degree sexual abuse in the cases of two boys under 16. The victims in the cases with which she is charged are under the age of consent.

Meanwhile, Joan Bakewell in the Times is calling for the abolition of women's prisons. I quote: "Prison is certainly not one of the places where women aspire to equal treatment."

When I was a boy, a woman in my family said, "If women are evil, it's only because men made them that way." I don't remember for sure, but I think she also said that women only committed crimes to protect, provide for, or avenge their children. (I believed it for a long time, too.)

Strangely, she is otherwise an intelligent, even (often) wise person. But I suppose that is part of your point- the press is full of intelligent, presumably insightful people who abandon good sense in favor of intellectual orthodoxy. And, presumably, advertising dollars.

Found you via CNN. I find your blog's tagline interesting and I essentially agree with it. I'd like to suggest the possibility that this post actually advances the claims of feminism. Feminism ultimately seeks to eradicate the distinction between male and female. A penchant for violence and sex is a typically male characteristic. Therefore, highlighting females who exhibit this characteristic would seem to suggest that women are not actually all that different from men in this area. What do you think?

Heretic said...

I agree that women are not all that different from men when it comes to aggression. They just have different ways of expressing it, such as getting men to do their dirty work for them. My post does not advance the cause of feminism, because one of feminism's on-going concerns is to portray women as blameless angels who are possessed of essential moral goodness. Stories about female offenders contradict that, which is precisely why the feminist-sympathetic press doesn't publish them. They are actually very numerous and easy to find once you start looking for them, and it is our duty to publish as widely as possible.

"Yet I don't recall seeing these stories on the BBC or in the Guardian."

Indded not. So what might be the reason for their failure to report these stories that can be readily found elsewhere?

I see two possibilities. The first is that the Grauniad and the Beeb are simply bloody useless at doing their jobs, i.e. finding what is newsworthy and honestly reporting it.

The second possibility is that they know full well about these cases, but are chockful of evil, lying, man-hating, cunt-worshipping, hypocritical, mentally retarded, morally deviant, snivelling, spiteful little femiturds who don't care a damn about the truth when it doesn't accord with their sick and twisted version of reality.

Now I think we should not automatically assume the worst about people when there is a kinder alternative. So I am just going to suggest that they are bloody useless at their jobs.

Which doesn't actually change the fact that I will never buy the Gaurdain and that I WANT MY LICENCE FEE BACK FROM THE BBC.

Not strictly relevant to this piece but Heretic's readers might like to mourn the tragic recent passing of the charismatic sex therapist Ray "Chubby" Wyre who, basically, believed that all men are born sex offenders and could only be straightened out through courses of expensive and extensive therapy, helpfully available through his company RWA, which trained/indoctrinated government employees such as social workers, police, probation with doctrine that all women and children are victims whereas all men are violent predators. I think he got off on all this stuff, not surprising really after listening to millions of hours of men fessing up their innermost thoughts and fantasies, like the priceless Billy Connolly story about the therapist, the woman client and what he did in her handbag. RIP Ray you fingerlicking perv.

That's certainly an interesting analysis. I've never seen any indication that feminism seeks to portray women as "blameless angels." In fact, most feminists I know would be offended at the suggestion. Feminism is essentially hyper-egalitarianism, in the sense that it claims that the differences between men and women are essentially "cosmetic." Feminism teaches that women are just as good as men at whatever task one can imagine. It would seem that violent crime would fit this bill, if the statistics were comparable, which of course they are not.

In 2000, women accounted for only 8% of the US prison population, and I'm sure the percentage of women doing time for violent crime is much lower than that. The simple fact is that men and women are fundamentally different creatures and that's why feminism is wrong.

Christopher,
I agree with you that men and women are fundamentally different, and that feminism is wrong (at least partly) for that reason. It is wrong for so many reasons. However, they only want to 'eradicate the difference between men and women' where it suits them. Paddy Brown quoted Joan Bakewell as saying "Prison is certainly not one of the places where women aspire to equal treatment".

The fact is that traditionally men and women each had a different package of advantages and disadvantages. Feminists expect to retain all of women's traditional advantages, while taking a share of men's, and the disadvantages of neither. They may act offended at almost anything, but there is no question that they want to portray women as blameless. Look around you. "If women are evil, it's only because men made them that way". Female Nazi concentration camp guards are tacitly forgiven. It wasn't really their fault. Female wrongdoing is simply buried. It is never mentioned (e.g. false rape accusations). If we point it out, then they either scream 'misogynist' at us, or they try to say that the woman's offences were actually caused by men. They like to take credit where possible, and shirk the blame where possible.

I think I see what you're saying, and I agree. I also have seen what you're describing, where feminists want the advantages of masculinity without the responsibilities. I think it was George Costanza on Seinfeld who was ranting about modern women wanting to be treated equally, "But where are they when the check comes?"

The problem I had was the "blameless angels" comment, because I think it conveys the kind of sweet, gentile femininity that disgusts feminists. But while I'm sure feminists generally would want to downplay females who commit violent crimes, but a true feminist has to rejoice a little inside when a woman joins the ranks of men in the violent offender's club.

Also, I agree to a point that men created feminists. If men had historically embraced the masculine role and had used it to nurture their wives, daughters, and sisters, I think we would have far fewer feminists. Feminism is a perversion of femininity, but it exists as a reaction to a perversion of masculinity.
