Thanks, Massachusetts, you freed a predator

Wayne Chapman boasted about raping as many as 100 children, and fantasized about killing and cannibalizing children, but he’s now a free man, thanks to a misguided Middlesex County jury, and this state’s badly broken civil commitment system.  ...

Chapman was convicted of numerous grotesque crimes against 11 children in three states, yet he left the courthouse Friday in a Prius rather than a sheriff’s van, after being acquitted of charges that he masturbated in front of prison nurses. His defense was that he was just scratching himself, and that he suffers from Parkinson’s disease.

Witnesses testified the only rash he had was on his feet, and nobody thinks Parkinson’s disease causes uncontrollable masturbation, but the jury apparently bought it even though nurses testified that he waited until he was directly in front of them before he started “scratching.” ...

In 1971 he sodomized a 10-year-old boy in Pennsylvania.

Between 1974 and 1976 he sexually assaulted 11 boys in Massachusetts.

In 1976 he raped a 10-year-old boy in New York.

In 1977, he was convicted of raping two boys in Lawrence and in August 1978 he was convicted of multiple sex crimes against four boys in Bristol County.

In November 1979 he was convicted of “Abominable and Detestable Crimes Against Nature” and sexual assault of two boys in Rhode Island.

Years after being locked up for child rape in Massachusetts, he was declared too sexually dangerous to be released under civil commitment laws. All his victims felt great relief, until two psychologists in 2018 decided he was safe for release.

Now, in 2019, a jury has decided to set him free. ...  Rest of story
"Because men have lost the objective basis of certainty of knowledge of the thing in which they are working, more and more I fear we are going to find them manipulating science according to their own sociological or political desires rather than standing upon concrete objectivity."

He probably paid them off by promising to let them look at his secret stash of photos.
