“Dark Places in the Wild”

My thoughts on releasing repeat offending sexual predators: The sexual predator that is about to be released in San Diego will follow a very expected course. (Jan 2014)

I am a very forgiving person but I’m not stupid. Sometimes bad DNA takes over a person’s behavior and the only way to help that person is to confine that person.

Not unlike the wild animal who has DNA designed to kill.

We can spend a lot of time calling Douglas Badger a creep and a freak but the one thing we know for sure is that he is an animal, like all of us. But, he has slightly different DNA than most. His is designed to attack. I wouldn’t get into a cage with a natural born predator and we shouldn’t let them roam our neighborhoods either. Here’s more on the story from NBC San Diego.

Releasing a Predator

When raising wild lions we’ve caught,
Inside a steel-barred cage,
We calm him down, we feed him,
And ignore his inborn rage.

Not a rage that comes by simple choice,
But rage from DNA,
A rage that cannot be undone,
Or simply wished away.

Why are we shocked when lion’s strike,
And hurt the ones who care,
It’s in their cells to do these things,
We can’t be unaware.

Predators have a thing inside,
That cause surprise attacks,
Like felons hunting girls and boys,
To do horrendous acts.

The predators of the human kind,
No different in their way,
They cannot stop from hunting though,
It’s in their DNA.

It’s why we lock these creatures up,
And keep them from their range,
One cannot stop a lion’s urge,
Or hope that he will change.
