Many prisoners believe killing a pedophile is a service to the jailhouse community and to society at large.
So it might not surprising that a 20-year-old man recently arrested for the murder of a community-college employee in North Carolina told a Daytona Beach, Fla., judge, without any sign of remorse, that he killed because his victim had molested his little brother.
Kenneth Morgan Stancil III used to work at the Wayne Community College print shop in Goldsboro, N.C., until approximately one month ago when he was fired for allegedly bringing drugs to the workplace.
Then on Monday, Stancil returned to the print shop and shot dead his former supervisor, 44-year-old Ron Lane. Stancil subsequently hopped on his motorcycle and headed south.
When his motorcycle broke down, he began to hitchhike. Despite his shaved head and a face and neck covered with white-supremacist tattoos, a woman picked him up and drove him as far as Daytona Beach.
Early Tuesday morning, the police found Stancil sleeping on the beach armed with only a knife. He did not resist arrest.
Yet, when facing Judge Chris Kelly, Stancil gave another reason for his killing. In nine words—not counting the frequent profanity—he said, “I ridded (sic) one less (expletive) child molester from the (expletive) Earth.”
Stancil claimed that Lane had molested his little brother and implied that the print-shop supervisor deserved to die.
He then stated he had nothing more to say, but, in immediate contradiction to that statement, told the judge that doing the time for the crime would be “the easy (expletive) part” (H/T Opposing Views).
As of this writing, there is no solid evidence that Lane was a child molester.
But we’re pretty sure Stancil is going to fit right in to the prison hierarchy. If his story is believed by the other convicts, he may actually gain respect as a pedophile killer. In a sickening way, he may be considered some sort of a hero in the jailhouse.
Actually, he is either a two-bit vigilante or is falsely labeling his victim a child molester to cover up what was really a workplace killing in revenge for having lost his job.
If you believe that Stancil is a sickening human being and not the angel of vengeance for pedophiles like he thinks he is, please share this on Facebook to remind people how morally twisted some individuals can get
