Joseph Mills Back in the News

Joseph Mills is in a serious world of shit right now. I've followed the developing news stories over the past few months, and it's becoming more and more interesting.

Instead of the misdemeanor charges that he initially was facing, now he's facing some fairly serious felony charges. He's been indicted by a grand jury and he'll be arraigned April 18th.

I haven't seen him downtown anymore. This is good. But that doesn't mean that there aren't other people out there that have the intentions of harming girls who are drunk while downtown at night. If you read this blog at all, then you'll know there are always shithead guys downtown looking to take advantage of girls. Every single night.

I've heard whispers that Joseph Mills shouldn't be held accountable for his actions because he "isn't right". He shouldn't be held accountable because he's socially awkward and perhaps even a little mentally challenged. He didn't know what he was doing and he shouldn't have to be punished for something that he did without malicious intent.

I say that's fucking bullshit. The only thing that really matter is the end result, regardless of his intentions or mental capacity. Those girls had those terrible things happen to them and I seriously doubt they really care whether Joseph "meant to do it" or not. A guy who's a little slow or socially awkward can go and murder a family, but if he didn't "mean to do it" it doesn't bring back those who were killed. The end result is all the same, and I say that he should be punished for the things that he did to those girls downtown.

He needs to know his actions are not acceptable. They're not invited, they're not excusable and even more so, they're against the law and the people won't stand by and allow him to slip by simply because he isn't like the rest of us. And shouldn't that make us feel better, too? A person who did things like that isn't like all of us. He's different. And we should all feel perfectly justified about sending a guy like that away, because we'll know the odds of it happening again are a lot lower now that the different guy is off the street and is being punished for his uninvited advances.

But then again, that's just one door guy's opinion.
