The State of Vermont, its law makes, judges and the media should be all ashamed of themselves. They have all been complicit in the lack of laws against convicted sex offenders. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR BROOKE’S DEATH!!!
The result of Vermont’s lack of laws, Vermont’s caring to protect children or any real understanding of child predators … Brooke Bennett is dead and never had a chance. Disturbing details emerge in the Brooke Bennett case; however, this is not the first time we have heard such heinous stories out of Vermont when it comes to child exploitation and sexual assault. In the case of Brooke Bennett, all of the above and include her murder.
As it turns out, the death and sexual abuse of Brooke was not an isolated case, but a sex ring. One created by a individual, Michael Jacques, who was a convicted sex offender and on Vermont’s Sex Registry. All the while, he was sexually assaulting girls.
This is not the first time that child rapists have been given a light or little to no sentence when it has come to the sexual assault of minors. When confronted with the lack of laws protecting children in Vermont in the past, what did the media do? They attacked those that would make the point public and protected the pedophiles.
“You may be looking at the worst judge in the USA.” And several Vermont Republican lawmakers have demanded he resign or be impeached.
The reason: Cashman sentenced a child molester to just 60 days of jail time — a sentence he said was designed to ensure the man got prompt sex-offender treatment but critics say was too soft.
“As far as we’re concerned, Cashman’s district can hereby be considered a predator’s sanctuary,” wrote the Caledonian Record newspaper of St. Johnsbury. “As long as judges like Ed Cashman are allowed to sit on Vermont benches, children cannot be considered safe.”
