Western New York: A Monster Walks Among You
So tell me WHY this fiend-in-grandpa-shape deserves to get out of prison--EVER?
A 100-year-old paedophile has been released from prison in the US despite fears he is still an "active threat" to children.
Theodore Sypnier was freed from jail in upstate New York and is being moved from a half-way house to a flat in Buffalo.
Residents say the sex offender should spend the rest of his life behind bars, and fear he will prey on youngsters in the area.
"I want him away from society as long as possible," Erie County district attorney Frank Sedita told wgrz.com.
It doesn't matter to me that he's 100-years-old. He's evil. He's a paedophile. Paedophiles are the worst.
"It doesn't matter to me that he's 100-years-old. He's evil. He's a paedophile. Paedophiles are the worst."
Sypnier was charged in 1999 with raping two young sisters, who were aged four and seven at the time.
The minister in charge of the half-way house said Sypnier has remained completely unrepentant of his crimes in counselling sessions.
Reverend Terry King said the elderly paedophile can still walk for miles and should be kept away from children.
He added: "He has been adamant that, 'I'm 100, and I'm not gonna change'."
As a Christian, I certainly will pray for this man's soul. But that doesn't mean that he should ever be allowed out of prison. EVER. There are more details in the story from the Associated Press here. Here are the highlights:
He was sent to jail ten years ago for raping and sodomizing two little girls, aged 4 and 7, and took pornographic pictures of them. He was first arrested in 1987. I suggest you go to the link so you can memorize what this monster looks like, especially if your live near Buffalo.
Even though he expressed no remorse nor has taken any responsibility for his crimes, he will walk free into society now.
Lesson? The law does NOT exist to protect society, and rape is not taken seriously as a crime against the soul as well as the body.
