Would someone please tell me what the hell is going on in Florida these days? 13-year old Sarah Michelle Lunde of Ruskin, Florida (near Tampa) has gone missing since Sunday. Jessica Marie Lunsford, age 9, was kidnapped, raped and possibly buried alive by a convicted sex offender less than a month ago in Crystal River, Florida, about 50 miles north of Tampa. 4-year-old Rilya Wilson disappeared while placed in foster care, and her foster mother was recently arrested in Miami and charged with her disappearance and possible murder.
And last year, one of the most horrific cases -- mainly because the abduction was captured on tape -- was that of Carlie Brucia, who was shown on a Sarasota car wash security tape being kidnapped by registered sex offender Joseph Smith. She was taken to another location, raped repeatedly, then murdered. She was 11.
If Martha Stewart is such a big threat to society that we have to keep her locked into an ankle bracelet 24/7 so we can keep tabs on her, what the hell are we doing letting the sex offenders walk around without so much as a "what's your business here, pal?" Martha Stewart is at risk of baking a robin's egg quiche. Joseph Smith raped and raped and was allowed to rape again.
What a freakin' world we live in! Would somebody please find this little girl -- alive, if it's not too damn much to ask, for cripes' sake!!!
Sarah Michelle Lunde
