Jessie Davis found murdered
Cutts was arraigned on two counts of murder, Davis and her unborn child. He was married to another woman, and had children in that marriage. He is, I repeat, a police officer. He left his 2 year old son alone in the house when he carried off her body. What kind of man is that? That would not only murder his girlfriend and their unborn child, but then to leave their other son alone after witnessing the murder?
Does this sound familiar? It does to me. Yet another case of a powerful man committing murder of a pregnant woman. I do not understand this. Why do these men not walk away? Why do they have to kill a woman and a baby yet to see the light of day? What is it within their psyche that allows them to think that these actions are even slightly rational? He must have loved her. He had stuck with her for several years, fathering 2 children with Jessie. What could have gone so wrong that he felt murderous?
I don't understand the rage of men. I know that they have some kind of extra testosterone surge when angered, but still, why can they not contain their rage? This year in Boston we've had a huge upswing of murders. Men killing men, men killing women, men killing strangers, men killing children. Men killing. There are nights when 2 or three stabbings or shootings happen. People injured or killed for no reason. Or no sane reason.
I understand the rage of poverty. I understand the rage of being a second class citizen in this country. But I don't understand the rationality behind thinking that it's within my right, or anyone's right, to kill another person. Heck, I can't even kill a fish when I go fishing. I don't have one of those "life is sacred" philosophies. I just don't get killing. I get anger. But killing is beyond me. Harming another person is beyond me.
I am never ever an advocate of the death penalty. I don't fall for the old 'an eye for an eye' adage. I believe in punishment. I want Cutts to be severely punished for his crime. I don't think he should ever see the light of day again. If he's guilty, of which there is little doubt after he lead the police to Davis's body, I hope he gets life with no possibility of parole. Maybe in some horrible prison far away from his family. Family that never needs to see this man again.
Can you imagine what his wife and children are thinking? And Jessie's son. What will become of him. Such a terrible tragedy. Such a senseless waste. Stumble It! JBlog Me
