When I heard it on the news I said, “What the f%$k?!!!.” out loud.
Just the day before I had heard that this total waste of good air, was being denied supervised day outings because he has not proven he has been rehabilitated and has a high likelihood to reoffend because he has gotten into physical altercations while in custody. Yet today, I hear that they changed their mind and granted him, a man who killed his 3 children in an act of revenge against his ex wife; escorted day passes out of the mental facility for the criminally insane where he has been the last 7 years.
The man is Allan Schoenborn and in 2008, while his ex wife left her home for the weekend in order to comply with court ordered visitation with his children. Upon her return the house was quiet, no little feet ran to greet her…….she went looking for her 3 small children and found them …… dead in their beds. The oldest, a girl was stabbed to death and the two younger boys were found suffocated in their beds. I think they were 10, 5 and 3 or 4 years old.
I can not imagine what that mother went through at that moment and every moment since. Schoenborn knew what he was doing, he was getting revenge on his ex wife for leaving him. What better way to make a person suffer for the rest of their life, than to kill their children. He got the ultimate revenge, not only does she live her life with the picture of her children murdered she lives with his threat to her, that she is, “Unfinished business”.
Ten years for 4 lives, 3 lives were his children and the 4th life was their mother who’s world stop moving and grew dark the day she found her babies slaughtered by a psychopath hell bent on revenge.
You can read the story here
The judicial system has failed this woman and her children in so many ways already, how many times does a person have to prove they are a danger to society, how many people does he get to kill before they stop releasing murderers back into society. Of course the man was mentally unstable!! what person in their right mind would kill their kids in cold blood? and he admitted to it! Cut and dried case!
As it turns out he will be released for his day passes in the same town as his ex wife is now living and her request to be notified when he is out on a pass has been denied! Again I say WTF!! THAT would be against his rights for privacy, it might put his life in danger. Oh my good God! But no concern for the woman’s life, and the threat that hangs over her head.
And don’t even try to tell me that he will be supervised!!! Criminals bugger off all the time on the day passes, I read the news, I was raised by a prison guard. There are a bunch of bleeding hearts who want to believe he is rehabilitated, believe he deserves a 2nd chance, and to them I say; you have your children brutally murdered and come get to me. Or, I have an idea, let him out on one condition, as long as he is out in society your young children must be in his custody at all times.
Or you go sit with the mother and make sure she is safe, you will have lots of time to explain to her how she is being unfair expecting the criminal justice system to protect her and how the man who no doubt made her life hell for years prior to her even leaving him is deserving of ANY rights at all. You can explain how you came up with the value of her children’s lives equalling less than 10 years for all three innocent lives. What value do they put on their children’s lives? 3 years?
I think it is criminal that this woman’s hands were tied when she tried to stop her ex’s visitation rights because she feared for her and the children’s safety. Society failed her when she was told to “just leave” and how many times was she told she was being paranoid, overly protective or too emotional?
I am disgusted at the blatant unfairness and total disregard for the victim’s rights.
