Pedophilia the next 'sexual-rights' revolution?
NEW YORK – The underlying assumption that has led to the increasing legitimization of same-sex marriage is now fueling a growing effort in academic circles to mainstream pedophilia.
Once considered taboo, psychologists are beginning to walk down the same path LGBT activists established more than 50 years ago, insisting that pedophilia is an inborn “sexual orientation,” not a learned sexual behavior.
If people are born with a sexual attraction to minors, the argument goes, their “orientation” should be accepted as normative and not stigmatized.
James Cantor, Ph.D., a clinical psychologist in the Law and Mental Health Program at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, a large mental health and teaching hospital in Canada and an assistant professor in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Toronto, is regarded internationally as a leading “sexologist” studying pedophilia.
Cantor says his research concludes pedophiles share distinct characteristics of “brain wiring.” He contends some 1 to 5 percent of all men are predisposed to be primarily sexually attracted to children.
In a New York Times report on Cantor’s work Dec. 22, reporter Laura Kane noted pedophilia “has been widely viewed as a psychological disorder triggered by early childhood trauma.”
However, many experts now, she wrote, “see it as a biologically rooted condition that does not change – like a sexual orientation – thanks largely to a decade of research by Dr. James Cantor at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health.”
Last fall, the American Psychological Association caused an uproar when the latest edition of its vaunted Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders called pedophilia a “sexual orientation.”
After inquiries from news organizations, the APA issued a “correction” stating “sexual orientation” is not a term “used in the diagnostic criteria for pedophilic disorder.”
In a speech at a meeting of the Association for the Treatment of Sex Abusers, Cantor traced the idea that pedophilia is a characteristic of the brain to the work of Richard von Krafft-Ebing, an Austro-German psychiatrist.
Krafft-Ebing’s defining book, “Psychopathia Sexualis,” first published in 1886, defined various sexual practices, including homosexuality, bisexuality and pedophilia, as pathologies determined by a mental state that ultimately traced to a brain disorder.
Cantor rejects Krafft-Ebing’s moral judgment and defines various “paraphilia” behaviors as sexual inclinations caused by observable differences in brain structures and functioning, which he calls “brain wiring.”
Cantor’s research team at the Kurt Freund Phallometric Lab conducts experiments with convicted sex offenders. The men are shown nude images of children and adults of various sexes, while a device measures blood flow to their penises, the Times report said.
The method, called phallometry, was invented by Freund in the 1950s. Cantor said it accurately measures sexual interests in 90 percent of men.
Cantor has found pedophiles are shorter, on average, and are three times more likely to be left-handed or ambidextrous. Their IQs are about 10 to 15 points lower, and they are more prone to childhood head injuries, a characteristic Cantor attributes to an inborn clumsiness.
Cantor finds that pedophiles are overwhelmingly men, about one-third of whom prefer boys, about one-third prefer girls and one-third are attracted to both.
In an interview with the Canadian show “The Agenda” on the channel TVO, Cantor said pedophilia is not a psychological disorder of something “that went wrong in their parenting,” but a biological disorder such that “there’s something in the brain of a pedophile that is different from what’s in the brain of a non-pedophile.”
In the interview, Cantor declared: “No one chooses to be attracted to adults, no one chooses to be attracted to children, affirming “you either are wired that way or you are not.”
He also notes that people attracted to minors aren’t all necessarily molesters.
Cantor argued: “We will be able to make much more contact with these people (pedophiles) when we indicate to them that we know they didn’t choose this, we know they had no opportunity to select what they are going to be attracted to, the best we can do in therapy is to manage their sexual interests.”
He asserted: “Nobody has ever developed a therapy that’s capable of changing somebody’s sexual interests.” Normalizing immorality
Normalizing what traditional psychology had regarded as a sexual pathology was a key strategy driving the research of Alfred Kinsey and the Kinsey Institute into “sexual variations,” WND commentator Judith Reisman wrote in her 2010 book “Sexual Sabotage”.
“Our laws are no longer based on Judeo-Christian morality, but on Kinsey’s immoral ‘morality’: an adulterous, fornicating, aborting, pornography-addicted, masturbating, impotent, sadistic, masochistic, bisexual, homosexual, exhibitionist, voyeuristic, and child-sexual-abusive world,” she wrote.
“These truths are difficult to accept, yet crucial. Americans must come to understand what has gone wrong and how we changed from a family-oriented and flawed but honorable country to a sex-obsessed and violent one.”
WND Managing Editor David Kupelian, in his 2005 bestseller “The Marketing of Evil,” warned that pedophilia was the next sexual behavior the political left would try to normalize.
Alfred Kinsey interviewing a research subject (Kinsey Institute) “Believe it or not, even child sexual abuse, rape, and incest (which its apologists euphemistically now call ‘adult-child-sex’ and ‘intergenerational sex’) are slowly but surely gaining respectability,” Kupelian wrote.
Kupelian noted that many people “think having sex with children is a good thing,” pointing to 100,000 websites at the time offering illegal child pornography. Worldwide, at the time, child porn generated $3 billion in annual revenues.
As WND reported, a book published in 2005 featured multiple Ph.D. “experts” claiming that sex with children “can benefit” boys and even serve a “mentoring function.”
Two days after WND exclusively reported on the new book, the publishing company announced it was canceling the book in light of the public outcry the story prompted.
The book, “Same-Sex Desire and Love in Greco-Roman Antiquity and in the Classical Tradition of the West” featured “scholarly” treatises by mostly Ph.D. academics who praised earlier civilizations – particularly Greece and Rome – for the role homosexuality played in their cultures.
In a chapter titled “Pederasty: An Integration of Cross-Cultural, Cross-Species, and Empirical Data,” Bruce Rind, Ph.D., lauded the rampant child molestation that reportedly occurred in those societies, at one point citing evolution as supporting a pro-pedophilia worldview.
Rind brought unfavorable publicity to the American Psychological Association in 1999 when the organization published in its official peer-reviewed journal, APA Bulletin, a report disputing the harmfulness of child molestation.
Titled “A Meta-Analytic Examination of Assumed Properties of Child Sexual Abuse Using College Samples,” the report by Rind and others claimed child sexual abuse could be harmless and beneficial.
When, last fall, the APA reversed its controversial designation of pedophilia as a “sexual orientation” after fierce opposition, it said the text of its new manual should read “sexual interest,” instead.
“In fact,” the statement said, “APA considers pedophilic disorder a ‘paraphilia,’ not a ‘sexual orientation.'”
It added: “APA stands firmly behind efforts to criminally prosecute those who sexually abuse and exploit children and adolescents. We also support continued efforts to develop treatments for those with pedophilic disorder with the goal of preventing future acts of abuse.”
In October, WND columnist Matt Barber wrote about efforts by progressives to roll back laws against pedophilia.
He featured the case of Kaitlyn Hunt, a 19-year-old convicted of sexually assaulting a minor, a 14-year-old girl, who, nevertheless, became a cause célèbre among “gay rights” activists.
Barber recalled that two years earlier, he attended a conference by the pedophile group B4U-ACT.
Dr. Fred Berlin of Johns Hopkins University gave the keynote address, opening with: “I want to completely support the goal of B4U-ACT.”
Among the assertions made at the conference were that pedophiles are “unfairly stigmatized and demonized” by society, children “are not inherently unable to consent” to sex with an adult and an adult’s desire to have sex with children is “normative.”
Barber said a consensus belief by both speakers and pedophiles in attendance was that, because it vilifies “minor-attracted persons,” pedophilia should be removed as a mental disorder from the APA’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders in the same manner homosexuality was removed in 1973.
Why Vagina Tightening Is an issue? - Vaginal Tightening
What is the pelvic floor?
The vagina itself is a muscular passage capable of great elasticity. It normally is less than an inch wide, but can dilate enough to accommodate a baby’s head during childbirth, and then return to its previous proportions. The muscles surrounding the vagina which help maintain this tone are the Levator Ani, made up of the pubococcygeus, puborectalis and the ileococcygeus, and the pelvic fascia, together forming the muscular partition known as the pelvic diaphragm or pelvic floor, through which the vagina passes.
What do the the pelvic floor muscles do?
The pelvic muscles prevent uncontrol leakage of urine by contracting when coughing, sneezing or straining. The pelvic floor muscles support the organs of the abdomen while standing. The pelvic floor muscles protect the pelvic organs from external damage. The pelvic muscles keep the pelvic organs in their place. The pelvic floor muscles help when urinating, having gases and bowel movements. The pelvic muscles have a role while having sex.
Like for any other muscle, they need to be fit and properly toned to fulfill their functions.
Causes of a weak pelvic floor
Under use. Like for any other muscle the pelvic muscles need to be trained to work properly. Regular exercising of these muslces needs to be done all thoughtout life. Pregnancy and giving birth. Ageing decreases muscle tone. Long term straining when being constipated, chronic cough or obesity.
Consequences of a weak pelvic floor
Weak plevic floor muscles may cause or worsen some conditions like:
Stress incontinence. Urge incontinence. Mixed urinary incontinence. Fecal incontinence. Pelvic organ prolapse. A loss of vaginal sensivity.
These physical issues take a huge toll on women. Not only does socializing become a problem, having to stay in close vicinity of a bathroom at all times, but constant 'dribbling' of urine cause have a massive psychological impact. In addition there are issues with maintaining proper hygiene, increased chances of developing urinary tract infections, and giving off an offensive smell because of the urine. Another one of the biggest problems women with loose vaginas face is that not only does it make intercourse less pleasurable for them, but also for their partners. This reduces their quality of life together, often causing dissatisfaction and emotional discord between couples. Even culturally speaking, urban myths doom a woman with a loose vagina to be rumored promiscuous - but there is a simple solution - vaginal tightening. A loose vagina is not an insurmountable problem.
The role of vaginal tightening
Vaginal tightening techniques have been around for ages. Increased awareness and self empowerment among women has lead to more women learning how to tighten their vaginas properly, whether it is clenching exercises like Kegels, or using specialized equipment like vaginal cones and ben-wa balls. These also help in vaginal tightening by strengthening the pelvic floor muscles, which helps women to 'clench' better, and passively improves vaginal muscle tone as well. With time, not only can the 'grip' be gotten back, but urinary incontinence due to loose muscles can be cured, and more intense orgasms achieved. It's a completely resolvable matter- a loose vagina does not have to mean the end of the world, the end of your social life, or the end of your relationship.
Vaginal tightening treatments
As with any other muscles, the vaginal walls and in fact the entire pelvic floor needs to retain strength and tone what can be done in a number of different ways.
Vaginal tightening surgery
Vaginal tightening surgery, also known as Vaginoplasty rejuvenates a woman's vagina, tightening muscles and repairing soft tissues. Full recovery from a vaginal tightening surgery takes up to 6-8 weeks and you will have to stay away from strenuous activity and sports throughout the healing process. Prices generally start at $5,000 dollars and the vaginal tightening procedure has lots of possible side effects such as pain, discomfort, bleeding and swelling.
Vaginal tightening exercises - Kegels
Kegel exercises to get a tighter vagina are now being performed daily by thousands of women worldwide. Kegels require squeezing the pelvic muscles, lifting them inwards and upwards. Even tough there are many benefits of doing Kegel exercises and they are a proven to be an excellent method for regaining tone, vaginal tightness and strength, most of the time they are not performed the right way putting undue pressure on the abdomen and inadvertently work larger muscle groups such as the buttocks and stomach.
Vaginal tightening products
They are many vaginal tightening products made with 100% all natural herbal medicinal plants that have very strong astringent properlies as well as properties that will help keep a healthy vaginal balance. They come in such forms as creams, gels, pills, tablets, capsules, sticks, wands, oils, soaps, washes and contain at least one of the following herbal extracts that have been used for centuries in Asia; Manjakani (Quercus infectoria), Alum (Argilla Vitriolutum), the Woodfordia floribunda (Woodfordia fruticosa) and Kacip Fatimah (Labisia pumila).
By removing dead cells and replacing them with newer ones, by healing internal wounds, preventing irritation, disconfort, infection, itching & burning, encouraging natural lubrication, promoting attractive odor and delaying ageing effects these vagina tightening products will help you tighten your vagina and can be used while doing Kegels or after a surgery to speed up the recovery process.
Biofeedback for Vaginal tightening
Biofeedback for vaginal tightening requires to insert a sensor, also known as an electrode or vaginal probe into the vagina. The vaginal probe, connected to a visual and/or sound system, lets you see and/or hear the contraction while execising your pelvic floor muscles. Based the feedback given by the device, through the colour of the light and/or the intensity of the sound, you will know whether the muscular contraction is done properly or not.
The biofeedback allows you to correct the contraction while doing the exercises on your own, as well as allowing you to gradually increase the effort and duration. The biofeedback will help you get more and more confident knowing that you are correctly contracting your pelvic floor muscles and properly carrying out your exercices.
Pelvic floor stimulators for Vaginal tightening
Pelvic floor electrical stimulation is a very effective technique that uses low frequency electrical currents, transmitted by a small electronic probe inserted into the vagina to stimulate your pelvic floor muscles deep down, inducing contractions of the pelvic floor muscles and consequently tightening your vagina.
Repeated pelvic floor electrical stimulation will tighten your pelvic muscles and restore pelvic health and bladder control while increasing the blood flow, reducing infection risks and allowing for a healthy cell renewal.
Biofeedback and pelvic floor stimulator devices are an amazing alternative to manual exercises and a quick, safe and easy alternative to surgery. These pelvic floor toners will help you regain vaginal tightness without putting the body under undue stress and strain.
Even though manual pelvic floor exercises can be performed effectively for vaginal tightening, studies have shown that over 50% of women do not perform pelvic floor muscle contractions the right way and that manual pelvic floor exercises target only up to 40% of the pelvic floor muscles whereas using an electronic pelvic floor toner targets up to 90% of the muscles of the pelvic floor.

Family Claims Wide-Awake Surgery Led to Minister's Suicide
Foxnews Published April 10, 2007 Associated Press
CHARLESTON, W.Va. – In the last two weeks of his life, Sherman Sizemore felt like people were trying to bury him alive.
Now, more than a year later, members of his family say the horrifying experience of being conscious during surgery but unable to move or speak led directly to the Beckley minister's suicide — perhaps the first such case in the country.
Advocates say Sizemore's death should draw attention to a little-discussed phenomenon called anesthesia awareness that could happen to between 20,000 and 40,000 people a year in America.
In some instances, patients might be conscious for only a few seconds, but cases like Sizemore's, where people remain conscious for most of their surgery, can lead to post-traumatic stress, experts say.
"It's the first time I know of anyone succeeding in taking their own lives because of this, but suicidal thoughts are not all that uncommon," said Carol Weihrer, president of the Virginia-based Anesthesia Awareness Campaign, which she founded after her own experience with anesthesia awareness.
Sizemore, a former coal miner and Baptist minister, was admitted to Raleigh General Hospital on Jan. 19, 2006, for surgery aimed at diagnosing the cause of abdominal pain, according to a lawsuit filed March 13 in Raleigh County Circuit Court.
An anesthesiologist and nurse anesthetist who worked for Raleigh Anesthesia Associates gave Sizemore paralyzing drugs to prevent his muscles from jerking and twitching during the surgery, the complaint alleges. But it says they failed to give him general anesthesia to render him unconscious until 29 minutes into the procedure — 16 minutes after the first cut into his abdomen.
Sizemore was awake for the procedure, but couldn't speak or move. Worse, the complaint charges, Sizemore was never told that he hadn't been properly anesthetized, and was tormented by doubts about whether his memories were real.
The lawsuit, filed against Raleigh Anesthesia Associates by two of his daughters, goes on to say that in the two weeks after his surgery, Sizemore became a different person. He couldn't sleep, refused to be left alone, suffered nightmares and complained people were trying to bury him alive.
On Feb. 2, 2006, Sizemore killed himself. His family says he had no history of psychological distress before his surgery.
"Being helpless and being in that situation can obviously be tough on people's psychological well-being," said Tony O'Dell, a Charleston lawyer who filed the complaint, which seeks unspecified damages.
Calls to Raleigh Anesthesia Associates were referred to Charleston lawyer Bill Foster, who said he wouldn't comment until he had more time to study the complaint.
Anesthesia awareness — also called unintended intraoperative awareness — happens when a patient who should be under general anesthesia is aware of some or all of a surgical procedure. Causes can include doctor errors, faulty equipment or patients who can't take a deep level of anesthesia, as with some trauma cases or emergency heart surgeries.
The Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations cites studies that show anesthesia awareness could happen in 0.1 to 0.2 percent of surgeries involving general anesthesia in this country — or between 20,000 and 40,000 a year. Patients who have experienced it often report sensations of not being able to breathe and feeling pain. Half of all patients also report mental distress after the surgery, including post-traumatic stress disorder.
In 2005, the American Society of Anesthesiologists adopted guidelines calling for doctors to follow a checklist protocol for anesthesia equipment to make sure proper doses are being delivered. However, the ASA stopped short of endorsing brain-monitoring equipment as a standard of care, saying doctors should decide on a case-by-case basis whether such machines are necessary.
"It could be that some day everybody who gets anesthesia will have a brain-wave monitor," said Dr. Robert Johnstone, a professor of anesthesiology at the West Virginia University School of Medicine.
Johnstone says such monitors are used at WVU, but in conjunction with a range of other equipment anesthesiologists use to measure everything from blood pressure to body temperature. When such monitors and tests are used properly, he said, the chance of someone being awake for a lengthy surgery is slim.
It was not clear whether Raleigh General uses such monitors. Calls to the hospital were not immediately returned Monday.
"The incidence of unintended awareness is rare," said Lisa Thiemann, director of practice for the American Association of Nurse Anesthetists. But she said the organization is concerned enough about it to adopt its own guidelines, including calls for hospitals to conduct post-surgery interviews with patients to learn whether they were awake during surgery.
Weihrer said that recognition of the experience and proper psychological counseling is often the only thing patients want.
"The reason people sue is because they want to be acknowledged," said Weihrer, who won an out-of-court settlement after her anesthesia failed during a five-hour eye surgery in 1998. "They don't want to be told 'you weren't awake, it was a dream.' I hate the word 'dream."'

Profile of Serial Killer Rodney Alcala
Updated March 29, 2017
Rodney Alcala is a convicted rapist, torturer and serial killer who evaded justice for 40 years.
Dubbed the "Dating Game Killer" Alcala was once a contestant on the show, "The Dating Game," where he won a date with another contestant. However, the date never happened because the woman found him to be too creepy.
ALCALA'S CHILDHOOD YEARS
Rodney Alcala was born on August 23, 1943, in San Antonio, Texas to Raoul Alcala Buquor and Anna Maria Gutierrez.
His father left, leaving Anna Maria to raise Alcala and his sisters alone. At around the age of 12, Anna Maria moved the family to Los Angeles.
At the age of 17, Alcala joined the Army and remained there until 1964 when he received a medical discharge after being diagnosed with a severe anti-social personality.
Alcala, now out of the Army, enrolled in UCLA School of Fine Arts where is earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 1968. This is the same year that he kidnapped, raped, beat and tried to kill his first known victim.
Tali Shapiro was an 8-year-old on her way to school when she was lured into Alcala's car, an act that did not go unnoticed by a nearby motorist who followed the two and contacted police.
Alcala took Tali into his apartment where he raped, beat and attempted to strangle her with a 10-pound metal bar. When police arrived, they kicked in the door and found Tali laying on the kitchen floor in a large puddle of blood and not breathing.
Because of the brutality of the beating, they thought she was dead and begin to search for Alcala in the apartment.
A police officer, returning to the kitchen, saw Tali struggling to breathe. All attention went to trying to keep her alive, and at some point, Alcala managed to slip out the backdoor.
When searching Alcala's apartment, the police found several pictures, many of young girls.
They also found out his name and that he had attended UCLA. But it took several months before they would find Alcala.
ON THE RUN BUT NOT HIDING
Alcala, now using the name John Berger, fled to New York and enrolled in NYU film school. From 1968 to 1971, even though he was listed on the FBI's most wanted list, he lived undetected and in full view. Playing the role of a "groovy" film student, amateur photographer, single hot shot, Alcala moved around New York's single clubs.
During the summer months, he worked at an all girl's summer drama camp in New Hampshire.
In 1971, two girls attending the camp recognized Alcala on a wanted poster at the post office. The police were notified, and Alcala was arrested.
In August 1971, Alcala was returned to Los Angeles, but the prosecutor's case had a major flaw - Tali Shapiro's family had returned to Mexico soon after Tali recovered from the attack. Without their main witness, the decision was made to offer Alcala a plea deal.
Alcala, charged with rape, kidnapping, assault, and attempted murder, accepted a deal to plead guilty to child molestation. The other charges were dropped. He was sentenced to one year to life and was paroled after 34 months under the "indeterminate sentencing" program.
The program allowed a parole board, not a judge, to decide on when offenders could be released based on if they appeared rehabilitated. With Alcala's ability to charm, he was back out on the streets in less than three years.
Within eight weeks he returned to prison for violating his parole for providing marijuana to a 13-year-old girl. She told police that Alcala kidnapped her, but he was not charged.
Alcala spent another two years behind bars and was released in 1977, again under the "indeterminate sentencing" program. He returned to Los Angeles and got a job as a typesetter for the Los Angeles Times.
It did not take long for Alcala to get back into his murderous rampage.
The Murder of Jill Barcomb, Los Angeles County In November 1977, Alcala raped, sodomized, and murdered 18-year-old Jill Barcomb, a New York native who had recently moved to California. Alcala used a large rock to smash in her face and strangle her to death by tying her belt and pant leg around her neck.
Alcala then left her body in a mountainous area in the foothills near Hollywood, where she was discovered Nov. 10, 1977, posed on her knees with her face in the dirt.
Murder of Georgia Wixted, Los Angeles County
In December 1977, Alcala raped, sodomized, and murdered 27-year-old nurse Georgia Wixted. Alcala used a hammer to sexually abuse Georgia, then used the claw end of the hammer to beat and smash in her head. He strangled her to death using a nylon stocking and left her body posed in her Malibu apartment. Her body was discovered Dec. 16, 1977.
Murder of Charlotte Lamb, Los Angeles County In June 1979, Alcala raped, beat, and murdered 33-year-old legal secretary Charlotte Lamb. Alcala strangled Charlotte to death using a shoelace from her shoe and left her body posed in a laundry room of an El Segundo apartment complex where it was discovered on June 24, 1979.
Murder of Jill Parenteau, Los Angeles County In June 1979, Alcala raped and murdered 21-year-old Jill Parenteau in her Burbank apartment. He strangled Jill to death using a cord or nylon. Alcala's blood was collected from the scene after he cut himself crawling through a window. Based on a semi-rare blood match, Alcala was linked to the murder. He was charged with murdering Parenteau, but the case was later dismissed.
Murder of Robin Samsoe, Orange County On June 20, 1979, Alcala approached 12-year-old Robin Samsoe and her friend Bridget Wilvert at Huntington Beach and asked them to pose for pictures. After posing for a series of photographs, a neighbor intervened and asked if everything was alright and Samsoe took off. Later Robin got on a bike and headed to an afternoon dance class.
Alcala kidnapped and murdered Samsoe and dumped her body near Sierra Madre in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains. Her body was scavenged by animals, and her skeletal remains were discovered July 2, 1979. Her front teeth had been knocked out by Alcala.
ARRESTED After the Samsoe murder, Alcala rented a storage locker in Seattle, where police found hundreds of photos of young women and girls and a bag of personal items that they suspected belonged to Alcala's victims. A pair of earrings found in the bag were identified by Samsoe's mother as being a pair she owned.
Alcala was also identified by several people as the photographer from the beach on the day Samsoe was kidnapped.
Following an investigation, Alcala was charged, tried, and convicted for Samsoe's murder in 1980. He was sentenced to receive the death penalty. The conviction was later overturned by the California Supreme Court.
Alcala was again tried and convicted of the murder of Samsoe in 1986 and was again sentenced to the death penalty. The second conviction was overturned by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals.
THREE TIMES A CHARM While awaiting his third trial for the murder of Samsoe, DNA collected from the murder scenes of Barcomb, Wixted, and Lamb was linked to Alcala. He was charged with the four Los Angeles murders, including Parenteau.
At the third trial, Alcala represented himself as his defense attorney and argued that he was at Knott's Berry Farm on the afternoon that Samsoe was murdered. Alcala did not contest the charges that he committed the murders of the four Los Angeles victims but rather focused on the Samsoe charges.
At one point he took the stand and questioned himself in third-person, changing his tone depending on if he was acting as his lawyer or as himself.
On Feb. 25, 2010, the jury found Alcala guilty of all five counts of capital murder, one count of kidnapping and four counts of rape.
During the penalty phase, Alcala attempted to sway the jury away from the death penalty by playing the song "Alice's Restaurant" by Arlo Guthrie, which includes the lyrics, "I mean, I wanna, I wanna kill. Kill. I wanna, I wanna see, I wanna see blood and gore and guts and veins in my teeth. Eat dead burnt bodies. I mean kill, Kill, KILL, KILL."
His strategy did not work, and the jury quickly recommended the death penalty to which the judge agreed.
MORE VICTIMS? Immediately after Alcala's conviction, the Huntington Police released 120 of Alcala's photos to the public. Suspecting that Alcala had more victims, the police asked for the public's help in identifying the women and children in the photos. Since then several of the unknown faces have been identified.
NEW YORK MURDERS Two murder cases in New York have also been linked through DNA to Alcala. TWA flight attendant Cornelia "Michael" Crilley, was murdered 1971 while Alcala was enrolled at NYU. Ciro's Nightclub heiress Ellen Jane Hover was murdered in 1977 during the time that Alcala had received permission from his parole officer to go to New York to visit family.
Currently, Alcala is on death row at ?San Quentin State Prison.

'Paedophile hunter' feels no guilt for Harlow man's suicide following online grooming sting
A self-styled paedophile hunter says he feels no guilt over the suicide of a man caught on camera allegedly attempting to meet up with a 14-year-old girl.
Christopher Wood, who goes by the name of Catfish the Hunter to ensnare suspected sex offenders and groomers, has come under criticism for his actions after the death of Harlow man Terry Hurford.
Posing as a teenage girl online, Mr Wood says Mr Hurford agreed to meet what he thought was a young girl.
Mr Hurford took his own life three days after being arrested on suspicion of grooming.
"I see what I do as a duty," said Mr Wood.
"I meet the people and upload the videos so that other people can see what these guys are doing and so they can keep their children away from them.
"I know that what I'm doing is 100 per cent within the law but a lot of people think it is morally wrong.
"My heart is in the right place and I'm trying to do some good."
Mr Wood, a 23-year-old father-of-two, first created his fake profile as a 14-year-old girl just four months ago, following a move from Yorkshire to Essex.
He adopted the alias of Catfish the Hunter and quickly amassed a large social media following.
"The area I moved into wasn't the nicest," he added.
"I have got two young children myself and at first, I would let them play out a bit, but quickly, I had a lot of people telling me to be extremely careful because a lot of sex offenders got released back into that area.
"In Huddersfield, I felt safe where I lived and never had any of these concerns, but in a completely new place with all these rumours, I tried to do some research.
"There was nothing at all I could find about convicted sex offenders and we as parents, have a right to know who we should be safe-guarding our children from.
"I could become friends with my next door neighbour and they could be a sex offender without me knowing."
Mr Wood took to patrolling chat websites and dating site Badoo in the hope of attracting predators, but is adamant that what he is doing is not entrapment, and he always waits for the man to make the first move.
"Badoo is an over-18s website, and obviously a lot of people would say that children would not go on something for over-18s, but it's totally false.
"When I have been on there, one or two of every ten people you come across would be 14 or 15.
"You have to be 18 to smoke or to drink, but children do that underage, and there is no security on those websites at all.
"The guys will always ask me questions first, and I will reply."
While he currently estimates that he is in conversation with up to 20 men, some of them "for weeks and weeks at a time", by far his most high-profile case was that of Mr Hurford, who was filmed meeting Catfish after driving from Harlow to Canvey Island in the early hours of the morning, allegedly planning to meet a 14-year-old girl.
He was at arrested at the scene on suspicion of grooming when police were called to Thorney Bay Caravan Park in Canvey Island.
Three days later, after being released on bail, he hanged himself.
And while Mr Wood sympathises with the 44-year-old's family – and two young children – he stands by his controversial methods.
"I have had people on the Facebook page calling me a murderer, saying I should be hanged," he added.
"I really do feel sorry for his family, but I don't feel like I'm guilty for whatever happened to him and what I'm doing is with a good heart.
"I didn't instigate the messages, I didn't instigate the meeting, and I didn't instigate his suicide.
"As much as I never comprehended anything like this happening, I hold myself to the highest professional standards I possibly can.
"I feel awful for his two children; I have children myself and I can't comprehend how difficult it will be for them growing up without a father."
Two videos of their encounter, in which Mr Wood questions Mr Hurford on his intentions and relays their online conversations, were uploaded to the internet on May 28.
And since Mr Hurford's death, Chris took to the Catfish page to hold an online question-and-answer session in an attempt to justify his actions.
"He drove miles from Harlow in the totally opposite direction to meet up with a 14-year-old girl," he said.
"Why would he drive 40 minutes out of the way to meet someone who he didn't know? He wanted to make sure that it was a real girl he was meeting up with.
"I can't say for sure what he was going to do, but I know what I believe he was going to do.
"What bothers me is when people come on Facebook and comment, when they have only heard the wrong side of the story.
"I want closure so the family can have some closure.
"What happened was a tragedy but Terry had problems.
"His death has made me think long and hard about what I'm doing. I don't feel any guilt over what happened, but I certainly don't want it to happen again.
"What happened with Terry Hurford really shocked me, but I do believe I'm what I'm doing and what I'm saying."
While he has vowed to carry on seeking to expose alleged sex offenders across the county, Chris, who lives in Canvey Island, is willing to make some concessions to avoid a similar scenario unfolding in the future.
"I'm going to keep on uploading the videos but I will blur the faces until they have been through the courts and been found guilty," he said.
"The police are bound by red tape and entrapment laws so I'm not going to stop doing what I'm doing; I'm not doing anything illegal or wrong.
"When I was 14, if anyone wanted to contact me, they would ring my home phone or come and knock on my door, so my parents knew exactly who I was speaking to.
"Now, 12 and 13-year-olds are on the internet so anyone in the world can influence that child, with grooming or indecent messages or images."
Mr Hurford's family declined to comment when they were approached by the Chronicle's sister paper, The Harlow Star.
Essex Police is investigating Mr Hurford's death. Enquiries are ongoing to see if any "third parties" committed any offences.

Paul Hayes accused of being a paedophile committed suicide before Hull court case
A man accused of being a paedophile committed suicide before he could be sentenced, an inquest heard.
Paul Hayes, 46, of Welbeck Street, west Hull, was found hanging from his loft at home by police.
The Mecca Bingo worker was due in Hull Magistrates Court after indicating a guilty plea on two counts of possessing indecent images of children and one count of making indecent images of children.
The case was cancelled after he was found deceased at his home on December 27 last year.
In a statement read out to the court, Mr Hayes’ father said he had seen his son for Christmas just days previously and did not believe his behaviour to be out of the ordinary.
He said the only odd behaviour his son undertook was refusing to take money given as a Christmas present – and talking about his pension arrangments.
He said: “Paul seemed absolutely fine on Christmas Day. He had a really good relationship with his niece.”
He said his son didn't seem upset or down, apart from the remark about his pension being split between his father and niece when he died.
He said: “Paul refused to take the amount of money I would usually give him as a Christmas present.
“I practically had to force £60 on him. At the time I thought it was a bit strange.”
Hayes was discovered after his colleagues at Mecca Bingo, where he had worked in Huddersfield and then for four years in Hull, noticed he wasn’t on shift.
They contacted him by phone but, when he did not answer that or a Facebook message, reported him missing to the police.
Officers attended his home and forced their way in. They found Hayes hanging from his loft hatch after a search of the property.
A suicide note was found in the living room of Hayes’ home and the handwriting was confirmed as his.
Area Coroner Rosemary Baxter returned a verdict of suicide.
She said: “Paul was described as a private person who kept himself to himself.
“He came home last Christmas and he was absolutely fine as far as his father could see.
“They had a good day together, Paul was very close to his niece.
“However Paul did mention instructions for his work pension to be split between his father and niece.
“At the time his father thought little of these matters. Paul gave no inkling he was distressed or thinking about ending his life.”
She added she was satisfied Paul died on December 27 due to hanging himself and returned a conclusion of suicide.
Hayes was alleged to have possessed 84 indecent images, with three in category A - the most serious. He was also alleged to have made 16 indecent photographs of children, which were found on his laptop.
The Crimes of the Killer Couple Karla Homolka and Paul Bernardo
One of Canada's most infamous female serial killers, Karla Homolka, was released from prison after serving a short 12-year sentence for her involvement in drugging, raping, torturing and killing young girls. The dead teens included her young sister Tammy, whose innocence was offered by Homolka to her boyfriend, Paul Bernardo, as a gift.
CHILDHOOD YEARS Karla Homolka was born on May 4, 1970, to Dorothy and Karel Homolka in Port Credit, Ontario.
She was the oldest child of three, well adjusted, pretty, smart, popular, and received ample love and attention by friends and family. Karla developed a passion for animals and after high school, she went to work at a veterinary clinic. On outside appearances, everything about Karla seemed normal. No one suspected that she was hiding deep psychotic desires that had yet to be unleashed.
HOMOLKA AND BERNARDO MEET At age 17 Homolka attended a pet convention in Toronto and met 23-year-old, Paul Bernardo. Bernardo was an attractive blonde, appeared to be smart and charmingly persuasive. The two had sex on the day that they first met. They quickly discovered that they shared the same sadomasochistic desires, with Paul moving quickly into the position of master, and Homolka willingly taking the role as the slave, obsessed with fulfilling Bernardo's every fantasy.
SCARBOROUGH RAPIST Over the next few years, the relationship between Homolka and Bernardo intensified and they shared and encouraged each other's psychotic behavior.
It was during this time that Bernardo was involved in raping women with the approval of Homolka. The uncaught Bernardo was dubbed as the Scarborough Rapist by the police and the media. His specialty was to attack women getting off of busses, making them endure violent anal rape and different levels of humiliation.
A SURROGATE VIRGIN One of Bernardo's constant complaints with Homolka was that she was not a virgin when they met. Homolka, devoted to pleasing Bernardo every way possible, knew of his attraction to her 15-year-old sister, Tammy, whose virginity was intact. The two decided that they would force Tammy into being a surrogate virgin for her older sister. To help accomplish this, Homolka stole the animal anesthetic, Halothane from the vet clinic where she worked.
On December 23, 1990, at a Christmas party at the Homolka family home, Bernardo and Homolka served Tammy alcoholic drinks spiked with halcyon. After family members retired, the two took Tammy to the basement and Homolka held a cloth soaked in Halothane to Tammy's mouth. Once Tammy was unconscious the couple raped her. During the rape, Tammy began choking on her own vomit and ultimately died. The drugs in Tammy's system went undetected and her death was ruled an accident.
ANOTHER PRESENT FOR BERNARDO Homolka and Bernardo, unscathed by the death of Tammy, moved in together. Bernardo blamed Homolka for Tammy's death and complained that she was no longer around for Bernardo to enjoy sexually. Homolka decided a teenager named Jane would make a good replacement.
She was young and virginal and seemed to idolize the attractive and older Homolka. Homolka invited the unsuspecting teen out to dinner, and like with Tammy, she spiked the girl's drinks then invited the intoxicated teen to her home.
Once there, Homolka administered the Halothane, and presented her present, the young pretty Jane, to Bernardo. The couple then engaged in brutal sexual attacks of the unconscious teen, capturing the events on videotape. The next day when the teenager awoke, she was sick and sore but had no idea of the violation her body had endured. Jane, unlike others, was one victim that managed to survive the encounter with the couple.
LESLIE MAHAFFY The thirst for Bernardo to share his rapist activities with his lover Homolka increased. On June 15, 1991, Bernardo kidnapped Leslie Mahaffy and brought her to the couple's home.
Bernardo and Homolka repeatedly raped Mahaffy over a course of several days, videotaping many of the assaults. They eventually killed Mahaffy and cut her body into pieces, encased the pieces in cement, and threw the cement in a lake. On June 29 Mahaffy's remains were found by a couple canoeing on the lake.
BERNARDO AND HOMOLKA MARRY June 29 was also the day that Bernardo and Homolka were married in an elaborate wedding held at the Niagara-on-the-Lake church. Bernardo had been in control of the wedding plans which included the two riding in a white horse-drawn carriage with the bride dressed in an expensive white gown. The wedding guests were served a lavish sit-down meal after the couple exchanged their vows which included, at Bernardo's insistence Homolka vowing to "love, honor, and obey' her new husband.
KRISTEN FRENCH On April 16, 1992, the couple kidnapped 15-year-old Kristen French from a church parking lot after Homolka lured her to their car, pretending to need directions. The couple brought French to their home and for several days videotaped their acts of humiliating, torturing and sexually abusing the teen. French tried hard to survive the attack but right before the couple left for Easter Sunday dinner with Homolka's family, they killed her. Her body was found on April 30 in a ditch in Burlington.
HOMOLKA LEAVES BERNARDO In January 1993, Homolka separated from Bernardo because of the constant physical abuse that he subjected her to for several months. His attacks had become increasingly ferocious, resulting in Homolka being hospitalized. She left him and moved in with her sister's friend who was a police officer.
CLOSING IN ON THE SCARBOROUGH RAPIST Evidence in helping police identify the Scarborough Rapist was building. A composite drawing of the suspect was released, and a work associate of Bernardo's contacted the police and reported that Bernardo looks matched the sketch. The police interviewed Bernardo and obtained a saliva swab from him which later tested positive, but it was not until 1993 that an exact forensic match was made proving Bernardo was the Scarborough Rapist.
THE ONTARIO GREEN RIBBON TASK FORCE The Ontario Green Ribbon Task Force assigned to solving the murders of the girls was closing in on Bernardo and Homolka. Homolka was fingerprinted and questioned. Of particular interest to the detectives was regarding a Mickey Mouse watch that Homolka had that looked like one that Kristen French had on the night she disappeared. Homolka learned during the questioning that Bernardo was identified as the Scarborough rapist. She also knew the rest of their crimes would soon be uncovered.
Homolka, realizing the pair was going to be caught, confessed to her uncle that Bernardo was a serial rapist and murderer. She also obtained a lawyer and began negotiations into a plea bargain in exchange for her testimony against Bernardo. In mid-February, Bernardo was arrested and charged with the Scarborough rapes and the murders of Mahaffy and French. During the search of the couple's home, a diary of Bernardo's with written descriptions of each crime was discovered.
THE WORST PLEA BARGAIN IN CANADA'S HISTORY A plea bargain was discussed for Homolka which she would get a twelve-year sentence for her participation in the crimes in exchange for her testimony. The government agreed to her being eligible for parole after serving three years with good behavior. Homolka quickly agreed to all terms and the deal was set. Later, after all of the evidence was in, the plea bargain became known as being one of the worst in the history of Canada, with the government accused of making a deal with the Devil.
A DEAL IS A DEAL - EVEN WITH THE DEVIL Homolka always portrayed herself as an abused wife forced into participating in Bernardo's criminal activity. It was not until the several videotapes that Homolka and Bernardo made were turned into police by an ex-lawyer of Bernardo's, that it became clear that Homolka enjoyed herself with their victims and the truth to Homolka's involvement in the crimes came to light. Regardless of her obvious guilt, a deal was a deal, and she could not be retried for her crimes.
DENIED PAROLE Bernardo ended up being convicted on all counts of rape and murder and he received a life sentence on September 1, 1995. Homolka went before the parole board in March 2001, but the National Parole Board denied her application for parole, stating "The board believes that, if released, you are likely to commit an offense causing the death of or serious harm to another person before the expiration of the sentence you are now serving."
PARTY PRISON Rumors of Homolka's incarceration being too lenient surfaced after pictures of her sunbathing and partying with other prisoners was published in Canadian newspapers. Tabloids reported that she was in a lesbian relationship with Christina Sherry, who was a convicted child-rapist. It was later determined that her lesbian lover was not Sherry, but Lynda Verrouneau, who was convicted of participating in a bank robbery.
HOMOLKA'S RELEASE On July 4, 2005, Homolka was released from Ste-Anne-des-Plaines prison. Court-ordered restrictions were placed on Homolka as a condition of her release:
Provide police with her home address, work address and with whom she lives. Notify police of any change to the above information. Required to notify police of any change to her name. Required to give 72 hours' notice if she planned to be away from home for more than 48 hours. Forbidden to contact Paul Bernardo, the families of Leslie Mahaffy and Kristen French or that of the woman known as Jane Doe (see above), or any violent criminals. Forbidden to be with people under the age of 16. Forbidden from taking drugs other than prescription medicine. Required to continue therapy and counseling. Required to provide police with a DNA sample. Homoka's lawyers said she was in a "state of terror" of being released.
"She is paralyzed with fear, completely panicked," one of her attorneys, Christian Lachance, said. "When I saw her she was in a state of terror, almost in a trance. She cannot conceive of what her life will be like outside."
Bernardo is serving a life sentence.

Saudi Police Crack Ethiopian Prostitution Ring, Distilleries
Saudi police busted an Ethiopian prostitution ring and two distilleries in Riyadh, a newspaper reported Friday.
The prostitution ring was headed by an Ethiopian "infected with AIDS" and two of his brothers who employed several female compatriots in a brothel which also housed a distillery for the illegal brewing of alcohol, Al-Riyadh said.
The Ethiopian had previously been expelled from Saudi Arabia for pimping but managed to return on false papers, the paper said.
The police bust a second distillery run by four Indians with no residency papers and seized pornographic films on the premises, it said.

Of all emotions, those negative are the most real. If you hate, you know that you are healthy. Your hormones are in balance if you can still imagine how you would inflict a slow, painful death on your enemies. Love isn't an emotion really but rather a mixed bag of feelings, with selfish desire a prominent component. Of any positive expression of the human mind, sympathy is probably the most genuine, though it may come with rage towards those whose victim is the target of our sympathy.
