Richard Nixon said “I’m not a crook!” and Ariel Castro said “I’m not a monster” and Stevie Foehl said “I’m a good person” after she was arrested for sexually molesting a one year old and filming her boyfriend molesting the child. The Huffington Post article link for this story is:
The article ends with the following quotes:
Foehl did not deny her involvement in the incident, but said that the information in news reports about the assault was incorrect.”Nothing we did hurt her,” she says in the video. “Nothing physically hurt her,” Foehl said. “Of course it’s not going to make sense to anybody,” she added. “It doesn’t make sense to me.”She said that her boyfriend, Emory, is a great person. “He may have made some mistakes but he is who he is, and I hope that one day people can forgive him,” Foehl said.She said the same thing about herself. “I’m a great person and hopefully one day everybody will be able to forgive me, like some people already have,” Foehl said.To her victim, she simply said, “Just that I’m sorry.”
I sit here with my mouth hanging open as I read “Nothing we did hurt her”! NOTHING WE DID HURT HER? I think the woman who said this is either delusional or she is so without empathy or moral compass that he really believes she is a “good person” and that people should “forgive” her.
Lack of remorse, or empathy is a hallmark for psychopaths (sociopaths, anti-social personality disorder). Dr. Robert Hare says in his book, Without Conscience, that the left and right sides of their brain do not communicate correctly and they do not comprehend their behavior as offensive, because they lack empathy, words such as “love” do not mean the same to them as to people with empathy. People on the Autistic scale lack empathy to some extent, but generally they do not try to hurt others, or want to hurt others, whereas the psychopath enjoys hurting others, using and abusing others.
I can only hope that this woman and her boyfriend are sent to prison for the rest of their lives, because they obviously have no moral compass, no remorse, and no idea about the gravity of the offense they committed. I doubt that the sentence will be all that long though, maybe 10 to15 years at most.
Cases like this make my blood boil. This woman and her boyfriend are up there in my book with Ariel Castro.
