Can this horrific story get any more bizarre? 73 year old Fritzl, a creature who has no right to call himself a human being, was sentenced to life in prison but will be eligible for parole in 15 years. I am disgusted by the fact that he was allowed to choose to spend his incarceration at Garsten, prison for the "psychologically abnormal" where, according to Timesonline, "he will be able to improve his English or study other foreign languages, as well as singing in the choir or training in a gym that is better-equipped than those of many hotels. As an inmate, he will be offered a wide variety of hobbies and entertainment, including tennis, darts and art classes."
Where is the outrage? This treatment calls for reform. Garsten is set in the foothills of the Alps and boasts of one of the largest prison libraries in Austria so that Fritzl won't be deprived of the ability to indulge in his passion for reading. What about Elisabeth's passion for, well, anything? Even though she's been freed from her prison, common sense dictates that she will never be freed from the memory of the horror that was her life.
