Your parents lied to you: monsters are real.

Polygamist sect leader Warren Jeffs was convicted by a jury in Texas of sexually assaulting at least two girls, one aged 15 and other aged 12.  Story link HERE.

Make no mistake about it, this man really is a monster.  A real, scary, child-harming monster.  The kind that are usually reserved for the likes of bad Hollywood movies.

During his trial, one in which he went through something like six different defense attorneys, Mr Jeffs basically claimed that this right to religious freedom somehow allowed him to rape little girls.  While he ended up being his own worst enemy (his personal record-keeping of misdeeds was almost NAZI-esque), you do have to give credit to the Texas prosecutor who doggedly created a case that clearly painted Warren Jeffs as a sick monster.

While I am not normally inclined to outrageous statements, I am going to indulge myself a little by hoping that Mr Jeffs ends up with the biggest, nastiest, most violent cellmate who also happens to have at least one young daughter at home.  Hell, maybe he will make Warren his "spiritual wife".
