A short post-script for those interested in the continuing horror saga of Karla Homolka. Our readers will remember that Ms. Homolka was at the center of an extremely ugly murder trial, in which she and her lover were found guilty of horrible crimes against children, and, relevant to these pages, the Canadian government issued a press ban on reporting of the trial.
[On an interesting and Internet-related sidenote, I had a Usenet newgroup dedicated to me, and back during the Homolka press ban, it was squatted on by a group who were sure, due to the name of the newsgroup, that it had been set up as a way for news-starved Canadians to share information about the Homolka trial, but I digress….]
Anyways, Ms. Homolka has been released from prison this week, after serving twelve years. Said Homolka, granting the first interview ever, “I don’t want people to think that I am someone dangerous who will do something to their children…I cry a lot. I can’t bring myself to forgive myself. I think about what I did and often I think that I don’t deserve to be happy because of what I did.”
I’m sure that a lot of people will agree with her.
