Give That Man a Medal

Josef Fritzl, the disgusting piece of human refuse who imprisoned and repeatedly raped his daughter for 24 years, whom the media have taken to calling, infuriatingly, "Incest Father," wants the world to know that he is not a monster. And in his defense, he offers the eminently reasonable argument that he can't be a monster, because, hey, he could have killed them and no one ever would have known! But he didn't, now, did he?
"I am not a monster," Austrian daily Oesterreich quoted Fritzl as saying in comments relayed by his lawyer Rudolf Mayer. Fritzl also criticized media coverage of his case as "totally one-sided."

…"I could have killed all of them -- then nothing would have happened. No one would have ever known about it."
Gee, I never thought about it that way. He's practically a fucking hero.
