Chicken Soup with The Terminator...

After the Jared Remy case hit the news I found a comment in a newspaper article, a comment I've heard or read many times before expressing the frustration that law enforcement personnel feel when they attempt to prosecute violent abusers.  They work their tails off to build a case that will put King Roid Monkey in prison for many years, only to have the victim show up, drop the charges with some variation of the excuse that he's really not that bad, and then wind up either being killed or having to call the police again.

Consider the following quote from the movie, "The Terminator."  Soldier from the future Kyle Reese is being interviewed at the police station:

"You still don't get it, do you?  He'll find her.  That's what he does! That's all he does!  You can't stop him!"

Earlier in the movie Kyle Reese explains to Sarah Connor what she's up against:

"Listen and understand.  That terminator is out there.  It can't be bargained with.  It can't be reasoned with.  It doesn't feel pity, remorse or fear.  And it absolutely will not stop, ever,  until you are dead."

The Terminator was fiction of course, but it reflects the reality of how abusers like Jared Remy think and behave.  And Aaarnold was the perfect individual to play the role.  He was huge, physically powerful, and utterly focused, to the exclusion of all else on his task.  It is not unusual for America's ample stock of Jared Remy's, much like The Terminator to literally be willing to sacrifice their own existence, and that of anyone who gets in the way in order to prevent someone like Jennifer Martel from escaping their control.

These men are not mentally ill.  There's no excuse for what they and their enablers (Helloooo RemDaaaaawg!!) do.  They're just assholes, and asshole is not a mental illness.

Chicken Soup offers some training advice...

For those of you who insist on training the next Eric Harris or Dylan Klebold it's important to remember that the most critical element of producing a domestic terrorist is to establish a general relationship between the trainee and the rest of American society founded upon fear and hatred.

This is best accomplished by showering those who are cruel and violent toward the trainee with positive attention.  Award them with athletic scholarships, expensive, hyper-masculine automobiles, and of course...lavish sexual favors from enthusiastic social climbers.  Blaming cruelty on the victim is also important.

It's also important to remember that the production of a domestic terrorist by this method is a probabilistic process much like producing an alcohol related traffic fatality.  You'll need to reward a large number of cocky, violent sociopaths and blame a lot of victims before being rewarded with a media worthy final product.

Good luck folks.
