Brisbane mum kills rapist, drags body over a mile…
Have you ever watched on the those “revenge” movies where the dad, or even better, when the mom takes out the villain?
That’s exactly what happened Down Under. A Brisbane, Australia mother was just raped, and when the junkie-rapist, Grant Cassar, said that if she didn’t willingly submit to another sexual attack, he “threatened to harm her daughter.”
During the course of the victim’s trial, no one denied a rape was committed, no one denied that the now-dead Cassar threatened to harm the victim’s child. Nonetheless, Roxanne Eka Peters was sentenced to a 10-year prison sentence for her “crimes” against her rapist and would-be attacker of her daughter.
Shockingly enough, the judge condemned Peters for failing respect Cassar’s “human dignity.” By the time police found Cassar’s body, he was found with 61 injuries including stab wounds to the chest and penis.
For Peters dragging Cassar’s corpse behind her car, the judge also admonished her: “Instead you set about the process of callously disposing of the deceased body.”
As published by the New York Post;
A mom who stabbed her rapist to death, then tied a rope around his neck and dragged him behind her car for a mile has been jailed for nine years.
Roxanne Eka Peters, 35, slashed Grant Cassar, 51, with a kitchen knife after he threatened to harm her daughter unless she submitted to more sex, a court heard.
She knifed the rapist in the heart at her home in Brisbane, Australia, then towed [dragged] his corpse past a police station to a ditch, where she hid it in December 2015.
A judge said she was “enraged” at Cassar’s previous rape and sick threats, but that did not excuse her lack of respect for his “human dignity.”
Peters was sentenced to nine years for manslaughter plus another 18 months after she pleaded guilty to interfering with a corpse.
Justice David Boddice said the humiliating rape followed by Cassar’s threats to harm her child had been a “significant provocation.”
He told the Brisbane supreme court: “I accept the stabbing occurred in circumstances when you were enraged by what the deceased had done to you and was threatening to do to you again.”
But she should have immediately sought help after the stabbing, he said.
On a personal note, a passage from the Prophecy Of Isaias (Isaiah), 5:20;
Woe to you that call evil good, and good evil: that put darkness for light, and light for darkness: that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter.
