I was horrified to read this news report from Thailand.
A British citizen in Bangkok has been arrested after Thai police found six roasted human foetuses packed in his luggage.
. . .
Reports says the six foetuses had been covered in gold leaf after being roasted as part of a black magic ritual.
It is not clear where the bodies came from, but Chow Hok Kuen is believed to have been attempting to smuggle them into Taiwan.
. . .
For being in possession of the foetuses Chow Hok Kuen could now face a 2,000 baht fine and a year in prison.
It is thought the corpses were bought from a Taiwanese national for 200,000 baht [about US $6,400] but could have been sold for six times that amount in Taiwan.
There's more at the link.
Run that by me again? He could be sentenced to a fine of only about sixty-four US dollars, and spend only one year in prison, for trying to smuggle roasted, gilded human foetuses? In Heaven's name, what sort of legal standards does Thailand have?
In my book, anyone who's capable of doing something like that has lost all claim to be considered a human being. I wouldn't even put him in the same category as a rabid animal, because that would be an unpardonable insult to both animals and the rabies virus. I'm astonished that he lived long enough to be brought to the police station and charged. I'd have thought most parents worthy of the name would have taken instant action upon discovering what was in his suitcases, without waiting for the sanction of a court of law to do so. (I'd be sorely tempted to do so myself, given the opportunity.)
There's no hell hot enough, or deep enough, or endlessly eternal enough, for this man.
