The Polish Fritzl


A man has been arrested in Poland for imprisoning his daughter for six years, raping her repeatedly and fathering two children who were immediately put up for adoption. Sounds familiar?

The 45 year old man comes from Siedlce, eastern Poland and is now in custody after she finally reported him.

His wife knew about all this, but was too afraid to do anything about it. Police are now searching for the two children, born in February 2005 and January 2007, to establish that they were the result of the sexual abuse.

Of course, the case clearly resembles the Austrian Josef Fritzl case earlier this year. I wonder if the western media will re-hash the nonsense they came out with then - that Fritzl was a product of Austria’s Nazi past and how “Central/Eastern Europe” just can’t come to terms with its past?

What's the sentencing guideline for rape and pedophilia in Poland. I remember that 20-30 years ago rape was not considered a major felony and was treated with a 'shit happens - get over it" attitude towards victims. Has that changed at all?

That all changed, big time. Now Tusk has just suggested chemical castration.

btw the case described not so much in common with the Fritzl case - the daughter was hardly kept imprisoned and her mother who lived there as well knew all about it - so the only actual similarity is dauther being abused by father and children born out of incest (both of them given away to authorities just after birth)

Well, that is still a great tabloid-type story! Still a nasty crime.

But what amazes me is that we now have demands for carstration etc...by the prime minister!

But that kind of punishment would not have stopped the girls being abused. It's just vengence.

Perhaps it would have, the kind of castration that are courts ordered are not the knify kind but the medical/chemical kind with hormones and such that suppress any kind of sexual urges sort of "anti-viagra".
