Oh, God!  What a nut!  ...right?  Maybe he's just driven by revenge.  Maybe he's looking to find a way to make his revenge legal.  If these are the steps he's taking so that he can blow the balls off his sister's killer, part of me wants to give the guy my support.  I'm out of state, but damn, I want to give him my hand to enact sweet, sweet revenge.

And for my life, I can't explain why I think that's a good idea.

It kills me that my sister is running for the Iowa senate.
 
2014-04-11 12:40:48 AM
Can you blame him? He may not win, but you know this will scare the living shiat out of the guy he's threatening, plus put heat on the guy from other sources.

Anti-intellectualism - check
Gun fetishism - check
Obsession with male anatomy - check
Against affordable health care - check

He seems to have what it takes to get the teabaggers excited.

Damn those dirty libs for denying his sister's constitutional right to defend herself from her husband with a gun. Or something.
 
2014-04-11 01:38:21 AM
Wait, you mean sometimes people seek political office to get even for something done against their family members?
 
2014-04-11 01:52:05 AM
My sister is fine, but this story makes me wish she wasn't, so I could shoot the b***s off somebody to avenge her.

So when blowing a guy's balls off, do you fire once at each ball?  Or do you try to get 'em with one shot, like picking up a 7 10 split?

His sisters husband chopped her up and scattered the parts. Shooting his balls off...doesn't begin to cover what should be done to the man. He only served 12 years. Why waste the money going into politics when you could go after the bastard in his halfway house, kidnap him, and conduct Hostel-like torture on him?

Yup - those are the sort of reasoning skills I'm looking for in an elected official.

I imagine if your sister is killed like that, whatever idea you come up with on how it could have turned out differently (if she had had a gun, if there had been more police, if there were harsher sentencing...) you wind up feel pretty strongly about it.

A 12 gauge shotgun from about 6" away would do the trick.

12 years for domestic battery escalating into murder?

Remind me to move to Iowa if I ever decide to take up a life of crime.  In my state the  minimum sentence is three times that, the only way to get 12 years for murder is if it's capital murder and that's when your execution date is settled.

Guess you're not understanding the part that it wasn't adjudicated as a murder case.

I don't know, maybe supreme court justice.  This reasoning does seem to be a little above even congressman.

He's a write in third party candidate.

Going totally viral and riding a wave of novelty is his only chance. Personally, I would have just done the whole ad deadpan, but camera zooms out and I'm wearing a clown suit then sign off with a punchline like "Put a real clown in congress." But that's me.
 
2014-04-11 07:28:50 AM
I would personally feel the same way about anyone who killed any of my family members.

jmr61: Guess you're not understanding the part that it wasn't adjudicated as a murder case.


No jury in my state would ever buy "I killed her accidentally, but then chopped up the body because no one would believe me, but it totally wasn't intentional and I wasn't destroying evidence, honest" either.  Nor, I suspect, would any prosecutor offer a plea deal on those grounds or any judge allow it.

Most places would consider chopping up the body to hide the evidence pretty much a slam-dunk on it being murder and not manslaughter.

And you didn't read the article did you asshat

Quast told The Des Moines Register that he believes his campaign video shows the seriousness of the issues but not without losing the impact of comedy.
My new video truly addresses issues in Iowa while retaining a sense of humor," he told the paper in an email.

He is not only using personal tragedy for political gain but he finds it humorous to use his sisters murder in a political ad.

And he uses people's fear of random scumbag sex offenders
"If you are the sexual predator and sociopath who murdered my sister, Lynette, and you come to my front door to do harm to my girls,

When that doesn't even appear to be the type of offender who killed his sister

Quast's 37-year-old sister was killed by her husband, Thomas Craft, at the couple's home in Swanton, Ohio, in 1999.
Craft was arrested after pieces of his wife's body were found scattered around the town of Ann Arbor, Mich., about 60 miles away,
The butcher husband was sentenced to 12 years behind bars after he pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter and abuse of a corpse. He was released in June 2011, and has since been living at a halfway house in Ohio.



But go ahead and wank to you revenge fantasy here on Fark, if probably makes you feel better.

I've rarely seen a post that was so obviously inspired by fear.
Your life must be very...twitchy, I imagine.

To everybody posting about the Judicial System in Iowa and how the killer got off with eleven years.

The murder was in Ohio.

For Farks sake why does Fark even link the article, just post the headline and let everybody run off on their own little story that they make up in their head.
 
2014-04-11 08:30:10 AM
And why is brandishing a gun and describing your revenge snuff fantasy in public not enough to get your firearms confiscated?
