Phillip Garrido, on parole after a serious sex conviction and a registered sex offender, is accused of kidnapping Jaycee Lee Dugard in 1991. Dugard’s stepfather watched helplessly as she was dragged into a car by a woman within sight of her home in South Lake Tahoe, California. Phillip and Nancy Garrido are charged with 29 felonies connected to the kidnap and rape of Jaycee Lee Dugard.
Phillip Garrido remains in custody at the El Dorado County Jail in Placerville, CA as he and his wife Nancy Garrido await trial. Bill Clark, chief assistant district attorney in El Dorado County, said Garrido can view TV and periodicals in jail and is fully aware of what’s unfolding with his story.
We Now Come To The ‘Latest’ In The Phillip Garrido Case.
Phillip Garrido sent a letter, postmarked September 29th, to Sacramento Television Station KCRA stating that Jaycee Lee Dugard’s civil rights had been abused. These included her Rights of Free Speech and being repeatedly denied access to an attorney during questioning. Phillip Garrido asked that they contact Jaycee Dugard at the soonest possible date.
Can you believe what you are reading?
So Garrido has the right to follow his story on TV and write to the media and thereby influence his case. By this I mean he can keep the nightmare alive for the Dugard family. Constantly putting his name in their front room. Someone in the family is bound to turn the TV on and hear of this letter. What right does he have to do this? What are we doing letting him?
What we are looking at here is Garrido’s civil rights. The criminal’s rights. Phillip Garrido’s civil right to television and thereby keeping up with his case. Garrido has the freedom to communicate and air his views and opinions to the media. In this situation he posted a letter to the television company. The Television company will spring at the chance to air its contents and Phillip Garrido knows this.
The Dugard family are going to see the letter or hear about the letter and the nature of its contents.
What are the matters of contention here? This boils down to Phillip Garrido’s right to perpetuate his defilement of Jaycee and her family.
The FBI, Police and Parole Services have all failed Jaycee Lee Dugard and her family in the most miserable fashion over 18 terrible years. We mustn’t allow it to continue a day longer.
So I ask you who’s sick? Phillip Garrido for standing jointly accused of 29 felony charges, for writing this letter, or for us letting him?
Do our civil rights count for anything? What about the rights of Jaycee Lee Dugard and her tragic family? What about the victim’s rights? What about our rights to protection from beasts like Garrido?
