Phillip Garrido Says We Should Be Impressed By His Kidnapping And Rape


When I first read about this Phillip Garrido and how he and his wife kidnapped Jaycee Duggard 18 years ago, the first thing I thought of was that guy in Austria who did the same thing and was caught last year. The next thing I thought about was how many other kids are kidnapped each year and are in this exact situation that we don't know about because we think they are dead even if no body has been found. For 18 years Jaycee's step dad had been a suspect in her disappearance but was never arrested. How many times would police have made that arrest though and been wrong?

I find it so hard to believe that a man can keep someone under lock and key for 18 years and no one notice. That he can have two kids with the girl he kidnapped and that no one notices the two kids. Do we just not care what goes on around us with out neighbors? These people were not far from other neighbors. They were right next door and saw the girls but didn't think anything of it. How can you as a woman stand by and watch your husband do this for 18 years and do nothing? Oh, and she did do nothing because Mr. Kidnapper went to jail at some point for pot and was released in 1999 which means the wife was the one in charge for awhile.

Somehow Sacramento television station KCRA got this a hole on the phone from jail and asked him some questions about what happened. Get a load of this quote. "I tell you here's the story of what took place at this house and you're going to be absolutely impressed. It's a disgusting thing that took place from the end to the beginning. But I turned my life completely around." We are going to be impressed? By what? I think he wants us to be impressed that he is a better person now than he was when he kidnapped Jaycee. Sure her life was a disaster, but he turned his life around so we should be impressed.

sick, sad and absolutely scary to think that this kind of thing can and does happen. I can only imagine the pain that this girl went through, not to mention her parents. I have a daughter, and I really think it would kill me if something like this were to happen.

jlb said...

I hope he spends some time in general population and someone does to him what he did to that poor little girl. Sick. Fuck.

captivagrl said...

our society needs to get more involved. every state has a hotline number. if something looks strange, REPORT IT. how many victims are out there right now? they are waiting and praying for help.

Babs said...

Imagine - you've given up all hope that your kidnapped child is still alive, only to find out 18 YEARS later that she's been held captive and has given birth to two of her own children. Truly unimaginable. As a mother of a 24 year old, I cannot fathom how this must feel.

What I DO feel is that this vile, scumbag, excrement, waste of human flesh and his vile, scumbag, excrement, waste of human flesh wife need to go away for the rest of their natural lives, then rot in the hell BOTH so richly deserve for all of eternity. They are truly an example of the lowest form of subhuman beings on this earth.

All my prayers and best wishes go out to this poor girl and her two children. Hopefully they are not damaged beyond the ability to have some sense of normalcy returned to them.

equinox said...

can't really blame the neighbors...I've lived here 21 years and I couldn't tell you what the couple next door looks like or their names. I commute 75 miles away and leave early in the morning. I just don't see them.

The wife...she will fry in hell.

"For 18 years Jaycee's step dad had been a suspect in her disappearance but was never arrested. How many times would police have made that arrest though and been wrong?"

And how many times would our collective mob mentality tried, convicted, and punished the innocent step-dad?

captivagrl said...

oh, and raping and enslaving a child should be a capital crime.

Ms Cool said...

There are so many horrible things to imagine about the case. The thing that is haunting me right now is when did Jaycee give up hope on ever being found by her mother and step-father. What went through her young mind. Oh, so terrible.

childeroland said...

Garrido's a pretty good argument for the death penalty...and crucifixion. There is not a hot enough place in hell for that guy.

McDooks said...

According to the neighbor whose yard backs up to his, she discussed the oddity of hearing kids in the yard playing, and OBVIOUSLY LIVING in the yard in tents, and her husband TOLD HER TO MIND HER OWN BUSINESS.
If I were Jaycee's parents, I'd kick that fucker's ass from one end of the street to the other for his "kindness" and "manners". Or should I say his "don't give a fuck" cuz my show is on tv or something. THIS COULD HAVE ENDED YEARS AGO if they had only gotten involved, even if JUST A PHONE CALL TO THE COPS out of concern for unusual and questionable living arrangements INVOLVING CHILDREN.
I am so sick of people who can't be bothered.

McDooks said...

I'm sorry for the rant, guys. As a mother I am heartbroken and RAGEFUL at what that girl went through, and IT AIN'T OVER YET. She has a long, painful, twisted road to even BEGIN to feel okay and at peace enough to move on. And now she has two children of her own. How her mother is coping I can't even imagine. My heart aches at the thought of the horrific things that Jaycee endured, and now her mother says that Jaycee feels "guilty" for bonding with her captor. NOT HER FAULT, but just ONE facet of what she has to face and overcome.
This is just so tragic on so many levels. At least she was found alive, but at what cost? I can only imagine she's a shell of who her parents knew and raised.

Pandora said...

FWIW, neighbours did call and the local LE did go to speak with Garrido two years ago, but couldn't search without a warrant.

More pertinent is that the parole board later did a random drop-in as is required under his level of parole and 'found no evidence' of anyone living in the home other than Garrido, his wife Nancy and his elderly mother. No signs of Dugard or the kids. (Of course not - they were out in the sheds in tent city.)

This is going to come back on the State - not the neighbours.

Garrido wants all to be impressed with his ability to channel sounds from Angels with his mind. His blog is a rare trip into the mind of a psychotic:

Love the comments there, too. Creative ideas for justice.

Pandora said...

Here is the link to his interview with KCRA in all of it's insanity:
http://www.kcra.com/video/20591978/index.html

If anyone finds anything to do with a trust fund or benefit fund being set up for Jaycee & her daughters, please post it as these girls will need years and years of very specialized counselling. I'd be happy to contribute.

McDooks said...

Pandora- I TOTALLY agree. I would like to contribute, as well.

Caroline said...

I live about 10 minutes from where he kept this girl for all those years and I sincerely hope he rots in hell. I just read that one of the neighbors said she used to hear kids playing in the back, but her husband said maybe they liked living in a tent. I say that if I knew a convicted rapist was my neighbor and I heard kids in his yard, I would call 911 so fast. The fact that the poor girl had to give birth at 14 and 18 is disgusting. They should just skip the trial and let the family torture him to death.

not on my dollar said...

It's surprising how uncooperative cops can be to concerned residents. I've heard a lot of "I can't check there, It looks okay to me, He/She seems like a nice person to me" statements from them.

Not defending the neighbors but sometimes it can be exhausting getting involved.

Just because it seems or looks strange to you doesn't mean the cops see them as breaking the law therefore they won't check any further. In this case WE KNOW that checking further would have saved the poor child but could the neighbors prove that this guy warranted further investigation?

West End Girl said...

It's such a horrible story "from the end to the beginning". I hope Jaycee and her family start to heal together and this awful, awful waste of DNA goes straight to hell.

Pamela S. said...

This bastard and his wife deserve the death penalty. Sick fucks.

selenakyle said...

This story was the awfulness I woke up to today on the news.

I have 1,001 ways I know to torture and humiliate these two sick fuckers.

Especially the woman.

And I don't wanna hear any crap about how the wife was MADE to participate for so many years, blah, blah, blah.

Stockholm Syndrome my dyin' ass!

I want to see these two people suffer greatly, then FRY THEM.

Pandora said...

Amen Sister Selenakyle.

No mercy.

Pandora said...

Police news conference at 11:45 PST / 2:45 EST. Live online:
http://www.news10.net/

I think they'll announce the charges. So far it looks like 20 counts altogether against the both of them.

None of which are likely to be capital, unfortunately.

merrick said...

What these people did to this little girl was unconscionable. My mind can not wrap around the thought of her being held prisoner for so long and enduring the violent acts and inhumane treatment for so long. It is an amazing testament to Jaycee that she even had the will to survive. Count me in on any donation or trust fund set up for her and her children. What she is going to need more than money is love, understanding and time to come to grips with what really happened to her. God Bless her and her family, they are going to need all the prayers and support that we can muster.

RocketQueen said...

The simple explanation is that the wife is just as guilty. They were doing it together. She shouldn't be tried as an accessory to this. She's equally culpable.

She can claim Stockholm Syn, but everyone remember Carla and Paul Bernardo up here? She got off on it, too.

Christine said...

I thought of the Bernardos as well, Rocket Queen.

The whole thing is nauseating and I'd like to contribute to any fund the survivor has.

There is not one thing I can think of that would be too much punishment for that couple.

And let's be honest - many people failed here: Parole, neighbors, cops.

And you know this is not the only one girl (now woman) who is still alive and being used as a sex slave. Here's hoping this case prompts more people to get their heads out of the sand and look around them.

Barack Obonga said...

They should start publicly executing these disgusting pieces of shit. Put it on pay per view - I'd pay to watch this piece of scum be tortured to death and we can pay off our national deficit while we are at it. He was already in prison once for raping a woman and clearly did not learn his lesson and they let him free to ruin this poor girls life. Execute them now before anyone else has to suffer. As for the wife, I hope terrible, terrible things happen to her.

mngddess said...

I just watched an investigation show on TV where a 21 year old girl dissapeared and the police just let it go. Refused to help the mother. Turns out the boyfriend did it all along, just like the mom believed. I am continuously stunned how people will simply turn a blind eye. There are ways to get involved without using your name.

And God forbid, if this was my daughter I would hunt him down and cut his balls off. No police station could keep me away from him. And then I'd beat the shit out of his wife.

sunnyside1213 said...

Yeah! Pay for view with some of the proceeds to the girl and kids for the years of therapy they will need. There is a special place in Hell for people like this. He won't live long in prison. Trust.

zandra said...

This man is insane, there is also a sound proof bldg - shedlike bldg that was locked from the outside. She spent years in that shed at a time, she had her children in that sound proof shed.

He's a monster, she's with her mother today but feels tremendous guilt because she bonded with him. Not one doctor appt, not one dentist appt, no schooling, her life ended as anything but a sex slave the day she was taken. Her captor had her 7 years longer than her family.

How do you recover from this? How do any of them recover and have a life?

ardleigh said...

For those two peverted kidnappers
I can only wish that their worst version of hell is repeated on them endlessly until they hate to be in their own skin and then I hope it gets repeated for 100 more years.

Poor J and her girls are in for a tough time for a long time.
The guy admitted to abducting J. He was on lifetime parole having served 11 out of 50 years at Leavenworth for federal kidnapping and rape. SIMPLY for violating this parole by committing a serious crime, he'll AT LEAST serve the other 39 years and die in prison. That's it. He's done.
His wife is an accomplice and will most likely spend the rest of her life in prison.
This doesn't have to be only state jurisdiction. Because there were civil rights abuses, they could def go federal. Decision will be based on which one have the greater penalty.
Let's keep in mind, too, that inmates have their own brand of justice for those who've committed crimes against children.

Judi said...

The latest from the CNN site:
http://www.cnn.com/2009/CRIME/08/28/california.missing.girl/index.html

Of note:
"Someone called 911 on November 30, 2006, to say that a woman and young children were living in tents in the backyard of Phillip Garrido, said Sheriff Warren E. Rupf of Contra Costa County, California, on Friday."
AND
"A search warrant was issued for Garrido's home in connection with killings that occurred in the 1990s, a spokesman for the Contra Costa Sheriff's Department said Friday. Pittsburg, California, police obtained the search warrant, said the spokesman, Jimmy Lee."

unbelievable. heartbreaking. devastating. unfathomable. oh, god be with jaycee & daughters.

Gawd I hate this guy.
Can we we rig the next powerball
so the girl he phucked up and kids
can move half a world away to try to get his stink off of them?

Girly said...

this case illustrates just why i believe in the death penalty.

linnea said...

I dont think it is possible for her to live a normal life. I think about Natasha, that girl in Austria (germany?) wo had been held for fifteen years as well and who managed to escape. She was huge news a couple of years ago and she did this interview just two days ago where she said her life has never worked out - she was made to believe her parents had abandoned her and so she never feels comfortable around them. Right now she lives like a hermit in her apartment, trapped in just the same way as when she was held captive.

hotchacha said...

Unbelievably horrific!

Can you imagine how things are now between the victim's mother and her step-father, whose marriage broke up under the strain of step-dad being a suspect?

Beyond awful. Words cannot express.

Diane said...

The bitch of a wife was the one who originally did the snatching, right off the street. Don't believe me? Take a look at the composite sketch the police made from Mr. Probyn's recollections when he witnessed his own stepdaughter being snatched from the street that fateful morning 18 years ago. It depicts a woman riding in the passenger seat of a smaller vehicle (that looks similar to one seen being carted off by the police) who snatched Jaycee off the street, and she looks an awful lot like how Mrs. Garrido would've looked 18 years ago.

I've been following Jaycee's story for 10 years now and not for one moment have I ever believed Carl did it. I'm glad they caught the dirtbags who did and I hope they get reamed day in and out in general population for the rest of their miserable lives.
