My Reading List

Not book reviews, but rather my thoughts and opinions on the subject matter, and/or author. Page/chapter numbers refer to the point I've read; i.e. pg. 35 means I'm up to page 35 but not farther. Chapter 6 means I've read up to the end of Chapter 5, &c
There will be spoilers and also a lot of swearing. I read a lot of true crime and criminals make me mad. Comments in brackets and red are not part of my original, hand written notes.

"Killer Clown"

Killer Clown by Terry Sullivan

[My notes verbatim. For some reason I neglected to write down page numbers]
John Wayne Gacy-oh, boy.
-Rob Piest's mom was right there in the store when Gacy lured him away-terrifying!

-not surprised Gacy is a Democrat

-cops are assholes. State's att'y (the author) seems like an asshole too.

-these cops are not only assholes, but idiots, too.

-JWG has 2 kids from his first marriage. I can't imagine how horrible it would be to find out that asshole is your father

-I know this book was written by the State's Attorney but there is not one likable thing about JWG. I felt even a little sorry for Gary Ridgway (Green River Killer). Gacy is just--yech--hard to imagine he got not one but two different women to marry him. He's that vile.

--Any notion or hope that JWG repented or made an Act of Contrition is moot--his last words were "kiss my ass"

[After reading this, I looked up the faces of the victims. It just broke my heart. JWG is the reason the Death Penalty is still a viable option]
