You read the news. You may know this. If you live in Central New York, you may have heard about David J. Renz. David J. Renz had been arrested in late 2012 as the result of a federal investigation into child pornography. He had four computers and tons of ugly files involving bestial acts with children. Imagine the worst—no, don’t.
There’s a town near Syracuse named Clay, NY. It was there, in the parking lot of the Northern Mall, that David J. Renz accosted librarian Lori Bresnahan and her 10 year old daughter as they were leaving the child’s gymnastics class.
Renz, who should have been in jail, was released on bail with the approval of Obama appointee and U.S. Attorney Richard S. Hartunian. If you read the indictment charging child pornography etc, it would have been clear that Renz posed a danger to children at the very least.
If it wasn’t clear then, it is clear now. Renz removed his electronic monitoring bracelet, kidnapped Bresnahan and her daughter, forced them to a remote part of the giant parking lot, tied them up and raped the child. After raping the child, he drove them to an abandoned road where he stabbed the woman to death as she fought to save the child. The child, though bound with plastic ties, escaped and ran into the roadway where she was rescued by two passing motorists.
Renz fled but was captured by police, still wearing the bloody clothes when he attacked Lori. Just yesterday, Renz had the nerve to plead innocent, probably looking for some kind of deal. The Onondaga District Attorney, Fitzpatrick, seems willing to oblige, as the death penalty is in liberal suspension in the state of New York. Nor will Fitzpatrick even deign to mention the federal death penalty, which applies in this case.
To be specific, I’m citing an article on Yahoo which mentions the federal criminal codes which apply:
“U.S.C. 1201 applies to murder during a kidnapping) and 18 U.S.C. 2551 applies to cases of "murder related to sexual exploitation of children."
The situation is clear in a county which doesn’t allow women like Bresnahan to obtain concealed carry permits, and yet can’t protect them and their children in public parking lots in quiet middle-class suburban towns. There is now in the local newspapers a great deal of liberal prating about the wrongheadedness of the death penalty, but no hand-wringing among this group regarding the death penalty of Lori Bresnahan (not to mention the absolute terror & horror & torture of her murder) nor the rape of the child.
Surely, these people do care about the victims, but the manner of their caring makes it certain to happen again and again and again. Just as in the Petit case in Connecticut, this murderer, when proved in court, deserves the same sentence as those murderer/rapists.
Need more evidence of hypocrisy? These very same liberals cheered for the execution of mass killer Timothy McVeigh. Not a peep out of them. Nor should there have been.
