I debated whether to post this. I don't want to rekindle any bad memories that some here may have suffered.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------

There was a highly media covered trial a few years back about a man raping, taking pictures etc... of his step-daughter. I had mixed emotions about the girl burning down the house and getting 45-yrs in prison. I personally don't believe it was her intent to kill her little brother and sister in the fire. It was a long running nightmare that ended in a loss of life tragedy.

Now the imprisoned man is being raped in prison and doesn't like it.

newspaper article follows:

http://www.omaha.com/article/20100213/NEWS97/702139864

Some might call it prison justice.

Brian P. Street calls it an injustice.

The Iowa man — serving 30 years in federal prison for repeatedly raping a teenage stepdaughter who later burned down his home — has filed a federal lawsuit alleging that another inmate repeatedly raped him.

The prison rapes have had crippling consequences, Street wrote in the suit.

“I was and still am scared to death,” Street wrote, “and had no one to turn to.”

If Street's claims are true, the 41-year-old federal prisoner may be getting a picture of what it was like to be his victim.

Street writes of shame. He writes of fear. He writes of no one listening to his pleas. Just like his stepdaughter did.

In March 2005, Tracey Dyess, then 17, set fire to the family's Griswold, Iowa, home in an attempt to kill Street for repeatedly raping her. Instead, the fire killed her 13-year-old sister, Jessica, and a 6-year-old boy who lived with the family.

Dyess was sentenced to 45 years in prison in the deaths.

Street was sentenced to 30 years for raping Dyess.

When he arrived at the federal prison in Littleton, Colo., Street said, corrections officers and inmates repeatedly referred to him as a “chomo” — prison slang for child molester.

Street, who alerted The World-Herald to the suit, alleges that corrections officers deliberately placed an inmate in his cell to sexually assault him. Federal corrections officials have yet to file a response to the lawsuit.

“I wouldn't believe a word he said,” said the Rev. Val Peter, the former Boys Town executive director who routinely counsels Dyess. “He's a con artist.”

Street alleges he was “forcibly raped” 10 times after officials at the federal prison placed him with a certain inmate in April.

Street, now housed in a federal prison in Tallahassee, Fla., said the inmate told him he had been instructed to “teach you what it is like to be a victim.”

That “began a 26-day terror beyond my imagination that still to this day leaves me with nightmares and the fear of all inmates,” Street wrote. “To add to my horror, I was being held captive by this inmate for 26 days never knowing from one minute to the next if I was about to be sexually assaulted again.”

Peter, the former executive director of Boys Town, said those words sound strikingly familiar. Dyess once wrote a poem after Street's repeated assaults of her.

“I look in the mirror and see a person who never stops crying,” she wrote, “a person that worries all day and all night, a person who is scared, a person in fright.”

Peter noted that Street tried to manipulate his stepdaughter, even at his sentencing. As he was being led away in handcuffs, Street, then 39, called out to the teen: “Just look at me and tell me you never loved me. Then I'll leave you alone.”

Peter said words like that haunt Dyess, who holds out hope that her sentence one day will be commuted.

“It plays on her enormously,” Peter said. “She was horribly hurt and is hurt by what he did to her repeatedly.

“And she continues to be hurt by what he is saying now.”

After he loses or wins his lawsuit I hope he is put back in the general prison population. No isolation.

I post the Daily OMs...I've never said I could do anything more than try to live up to them.....in this case, I can't find any reason to send love and light to a rapist...maybe you can, but I figure God can sort this one out.

Softening Judgment

Moving Beyond Appearances

It is our natural inclination to judge people, since it happens without our even thinking about it. We take one look and summarize a whole person—overweight, pretty, stylish, sloppy. This habit comes from the mind’s need to categorize the world in order to be able to function without becoming overwhelmed. When we judge, we are looking for pertinent information, trying to determine whether the person approaching is a threat, an ally, or someone we don’t need to worry about. This way of looking at people makes sense in a dangerous context, but in our daily lives it leads to an overly simplistic reading of the people we meet.

If you have ever judged someone dismissively, only to have them become a dear friend once you got to know them, you know the hazards of the judgment cycle firsthand. An experience like that may have led you to soften your natural tendency to believe your first impressions. We will always notice things about the people we meet, but as we become more conscious of the shortcomings of judgment, we won’t be satisfied with our surface observations. We may notice that someone is driving an expensive car, but we will decide whether to befriend her based on getting to know her over time. We will not rule out a friendship with someone with messy hair, especially if he turns out to have a great sense of humor and a kind heart. Liking or disliking a person is a choice you will naturally make, but it will be after you have gotten to know them.

Next time you notice yourself judging somebody, try to send love, light, or blessings to the person you were judging. Then try to listen to them openly or look them in the eye and learn something about them. If this is not easy for you, remember not to judge yourself either. Trust that with practice, you will successfully disable your habitual patterns. As you do, you will find a whole new dimension of perception opening up to you, allowing you to see beyond the surface and into the essence of the people you meet.

If you're using the Daily OMs as a tool to make a snide point, you're entirely missing the purpose of them to begin with. Are you that far along your path that you're so much holier than the rest that you feel you have the right to attack others? Did you miss that part? I'll post this part again in case you missed it:

this is no way to treat anyone, rapist or not.

"do under others as you would have them do unto you" does not include the converse.

It probably hasn't really happened. Is there any evidence other than his claims? He has no credibility.

I'm sure if he'd just told the guy he never loved him it would have stopped.

That's kind of my feeling. Besides being a pedophile he was consistently caught in lies when all of this went down, attempted to use coercion on this child after the fact, and has a life-long history of being a con-man with many other crimes under his belt. This story reeks of the kind of BS he flung during the trial.

And this girl he abused in his wife/her mother's house with the mother's knowledge ... talk about a text book case of what can happen to a life when someone's been raped and used and abused since before pre-school and every adult in their life is a POS and nobody is around to be your champion. This girl never had a chance.

That is a good motto to live by if you're into it. I'm more of an eye for an eye type. If what the guys says is true, he is getting what he deserves.

The "eye for an eye" scripture taken in whole is an admonishment of excessive punishment.

This scripture is often used out of its intended context.

In this particular case, I don't see it as especially excessive punishment. His victim was imprisoned by her age and forced to undergo repeated rape....if I have the story correct....it appears from what he's saying his situation is the same.

If his claims are true, it looks good on him. My wife says the best rehabilitation program for pedophiles and molesters is GenPop.

Rape is acceptable punishment? ???????

Not in any humane system.

Let's hear from another woman about how mercy she thinks this guy deserves. Then I'll pay attention. In the meantime.....pretend you've got a daughter.....pretend she's living with her mother and step-father.....now pretend he's been raping her on a regular basis and you didn't realize it. When you've really thought it through see how you feel. Do I think it's right what's happened to him? No. Do I think it's poetic justice....yep.

lets pretend you had a male member of youre family that was acussed of raping someone
lets say he went prison for something he didnt do, lets see you stop and talk to those people for awhile
or lets see you sitback and talk with someone that was falsey accused and see what that person has to do to get that black mark off their reputation

I'm presupposing the man in question is guilty....and from all intents and purpose, his own conduct and words at the trial validate the guilty verdict.

There really isn't any contridiction in my statements. I don't think it's right, but I don't think it's excessive. I had nothing to do with either putting him in there or mistreating him so it really doesn't matter what I think.

how can it be not right, but also not excessive. ??

If it's wrong , it is wrong no matter how much.

You don't have any consistency to your thinking, so you are right , it doesn't matter what you think.
